BOOK SYNOPSISDiscover New York Times and USA Today bestselling author Anne Marsh’s sexy Smoke Jumper series!
It’s supposed to be a quick wedding hook-up. She’s lonely. He’s available. After seeing Rio Donovan and Gia Jackson down the aisle, the sizzling sexual chemistry between Mimi Hart and Mack Johnson has this pair burning up the sheets in a night of no-holds fantasies. One night. No regrets. And no promises. As the resident bad girl and bartender of Strong, California, Mimi has earned every inch of her reputation. Tattoos, motorcycles and dancing on the bar—Mimi’s all in. She’s fun and she’s tough, a hot sex-on-the-pool-table woman—not a sunset-and-kisses sweetheart. Until her wedding hook-up turns her smoke jumper into a man on a sensual mission… and her heart into freefall even as her own past threatens to catch up with her.

My ThoughtsEvery time I pick up one of the books written by Anne Marsh am always expecting an emotionally satisfying as well as heart pounding action with true to life scenes while the characters once again show how dangerous firefighting is as an occupation and how harrowing it is to care for one never knowing whether the blaze they battle could be their last!
In Sweet Burn we are once again given a very sexy romance along with some tense moments that manage to blend together to create what proved to be the book in the series that hit very close to home for me in terms of a past personal tragedy that still haunts my nightmares on occasion.
There is truth that with age comes wisdom from past mistakes and in realizing that fact Mimi Hart is able to finally allow herself to fall in love with firefighter Mack Johnson. Of course no one said that falling in love would be all sunshine and rainbows, for these two it was more like dodging bullets and narrowly escaping becoming casualties of a wildfire.
Despite all the pitfalls and finding themselves more than once butting heads Mack and Mimi are a perfect example of two strong people learning that what the heart wants is hard to deny.
With every book in the Smoke Jumper series the threat of danger to the firefighting team members is always a very real part of the story,in Sweet Burn the shocking death of a beloved character brought home that danger full force!
Fact and fiction blend but as always when the last page is read you feel like the characters in Strong California are real, almost like members of your own community or family.
