Love burns white-hot in this first scorching romance in an all-new trilogy about a family of firefighters from the New York Times bestselling author of the Play-by-Play novels and the Hope series.
When firefighter Jackson Donovan's past comes roaring back to life in the form of not-so-damsel-in-distress Becks Benning, the last thing he wants to do is relive old times. No matter how tempting she makes it seem...
Yet when Becks runs into trouble, he grudgingly agrees to let her stay with his family. And the more time he spends with this grown up, smokin' hot Becks, the more he wants her in his bed - and his future.
For Becks, Jackson hasn't changed at all. He's still honourable, sexy as sin... and completely unapproachable. But there's more than one way to get to a man's heart. And now that she's found Jackson again, Becks isn't letting him go.
Want more sexy romance? Don't miss the rest of the Play-By-Play series which began with The Perfect Play. And check out Jaci's gorgeously romantic Hope series beginning with Hope Flames.
Hot to the Touch kicks off a brand new firefighter series…. Brotherhood by Fire. Jaci Burton certainly knows her firefighters and can write a sexy, steamy novel like no else. Hot to the Touch gives us just that… HOT firefighter Jackson Donovan the leader of the “brotherhood” and his journey towards letting go of the past and falling for the right (for him) girl. The story kicks off in the midst of a fire rescue and gives us the background for the Donovan Brothers. It sets the tone for the book and keeps the reader wanting to know all about the three boys that were rescued.
Present day brings us to Jackson and Becks… and while I was expecting a completely different story, I was still very much entertained. Hot to the Touch has a very heavy tone to it and at times it was bit depressing to read. I have mixed feelings about the story in general, but overall I enjoyed the push and pull of Becks and Jackson’s relationship. They had some series chemistry which they brought to their sexy times for sure. I also enjoyed the family dynamics of the brothers who all followed in their father’s footsteps (refer to prologue/excerpt below). This turned out to a good series starter and I can’t wait to read more about the Donovan Brothers in the future.
