This is the second book in the Outback Heat series by this author. This story has the youngest of the Weston brothers, Jarrod. He’s a fireman in Jumbuck Springs, the town he grew up in. As a teenager he fell in love with the girl next door, Selena, but she ran away to become a familiar face on the television news reports and hasn’t been back home for fifteen years. Now she’s returning to give a speech at the town’s celebrations, she’ll only be there for three days – will their love still be as hot as the outback bushfires or will time have quenched it completely?
This is a hot second chance romance where the bushfire’s intense heat is rivalled by the passion between these two, long separated lovers. However, Selena ran before, putting her possible career before their love – will she do the same again? Can they work out a way to give their love a chance or is it all fifteen years too late?
The dramatic portrayal of the impact of bushfires on rural communities, the bravery of all the emergency services involved in protecting lives and property and the close knit relationships are fundamental to this story. The turmoil, ceaseless dedication of the hot firefighters and sometimes insensitivity of the media in their desire for ‘the story’ all have their role to play in this entertaining romance. Highly recommended to anyone who likes their romance being given a second chance but with plenty of action, angst and turmoil before there’s any chance of achieving a HEA.
Thanks to the Author, publisher and NetGalley, too, for letting me read an ARC of this book in exchange for an honest review.
