Charlotte “Charlie” Roberts is an EMT, and a damned good one. Out of all the firehouses she rotates through, she loves the guys at Engine Co. 81 the best. They always make her feel welcome, especially her paramedic partner, Shane. Wickedly good looking and an amazing paramedic, she could easily let herself feel something more for him—if she didn’t have a dark secret hidden away in her past. She swore she’d never go back, but now bizarre things are happening, threatening her patients. Has the past she’s fought so hard to escape finally caught up with her?

Shane Parker liked Charlie from the moment they first met, probably a little too much. After she ignored his flirting attempts, he’d backed off, respecting her decision. Yet even still, just a glimpse of her always spark a fire deep within him, one he can’t seem to put out. But they were only colleagues and good friends. And that was all they’d ever be.

But then Engine Co. 81 comes under attack from a serial arsonist and someone threatens Charlie’s life. With the squad taking fire from all sides, Shane’s determined to keep Charlie safe, whether she wants him to or not. Whoever is stalking her is going to quickly discover just how far Shane would go to protect one of their own. Charlie may not want him in her life, but Shane would still sacrifice his own if it meant saving her. Only problem is her stalker knows that, too…

Sweet with edge of your seat thrills

by Jenn Allen

This was my first read by this author and I will definitely be checking out the rest of this series and more! Great characters, Shane and Charlie have been trying to ignore the pull to each for a long time. They both have a strength, compassion and personality that I loved. Having that bit of unknown swirling in the background, grabbing at you, keeping you on your toes, was the cherry on top. A must!

I'm a retired EMT and love books that have EMS in them since it is such a thankless occupation. Love even more that a love story uses that lifestyle.

This was a great romantic suspense story! Lots of twists to a real story. Plus chemistry between the Shane and Charlie that lead to fun scenes throughout. Definitely a must read. This was the first book I've read of Jamie Garrett's but definitely will not be my last!

It was okay, not great but enjoyable.

The book was okay not great but okay. I think if I had read the books in order 1 through 4 before receiving an arc of book number 5. I would have had a better understanding of what was going on with the secondary characters. I didn't like the fact that the secondary characters were introduced but there was no touching on what their histories were with regards to the series. All other series of books I have ever read in the past all throw in a paragraph or two with regards to what a character's history was in a Prior book, so that you don't have to go back and read those books to know what's going on with that person. In my opinion this book isn't necessarily A stand-alone book because on quite a few pages I was completely lost with regards to who other characters were. Example: Maya's FBI brother who burned down a building? Was he framed? Murdered? Covering for Maya? Is she the arsonist?
a little backstory on that would have been nice instead of me having to guess that Maya had a FBI brother, who was an arsonist . I think the book kind of relied heavily on the reader having read the previous four books. Also the book was very fast paced almost felt rushed , which isn't necessarily a bad thing but I found myself lost at several points and had to back up several pages to reread so that I could get back to where the story had so suddenly changed direction. I felt like the book needed to be fleshed out a little bit. It seems like the author was trying to shove so much into the book that it wasn't as enjoyable as it could have been.
I noticed a couple of typos or misuse of words. When the author says "breakfast as ice cream" ? I think she was trying to say "breakfast was ice cream" and her orgasm hit her "fast as lighting"? - fast as lightning maybe ? Just a couple of misuse of words.
Other than that, i liked the book. It was entertaining. I would recommend the book with the caveat that the reader please read the books in order starting with book number one. Ms. Garrett, thank you for giving me the opportunity to read your book
