Burn for You by Stephanie Reid
Series: Protector #3
Genres: Romantic Suspense
Vic Russo is just one of the guys. Except she’s not a guy. A paramedic, affectionately known as Vic within her firehouse, Victoria is a permanent fixture in the friend zone. But when her childhood crush, firefighter Graham McAndrew, becomes single once again, she decides enough is enough. It’s time for Graham to see her as the woman she’s become. There’s only one problem. A photo of her in the arms of another man has captured the nation’s attention.
Jason Meadows is not thrilled to have his police work interrupted by a small media craze. In fact, he’d be content never to see Victoria or that photo-gone-viral again. But a series of fires in town, paired with a growing attraction to the quirky paramedic, make staying away impossible.
Determined to ferret out a potential killer, Jason enlists Victoria’s help as his eyes and ears inside the firehouse. And while threats rise from within, Victoria is forced to choose between the love of her past and the man who’s ignited her fire within.
This is my first book by this author and I loved it! While Burn For You is a standalone there are two books that came before this one that I know I will be reading. I am going to be honest and say that I typically have a hard time reading books where the guy is named Jason. My brother in-law is named Jason and well it’s hard to picture steamy scenes when he is the image that ends up in my mind. However this really didn’t happen here at all. Vic and Jason are both well written characters. So are the supporting characters that come in to play throughout the book.
“You want to know how I feel about you?” he whispered in her ear. “I burn for you. Every second I’m not with you, I’m thinking about how I can arrange to see you again. And when I’m finally with you? I’m thinking about how I can get closer to you.”
I am grateful that there is just enough of a background on both Vic and Jason that you understand who they are and what their thought process is. It makes them all that more real and makes the story progress without leaving you guessing. The build up for who and what was going on was fabulous! I didn’t have a clue until it was revealed which is something that I appreciate in a good Romantic Suspense.
