Editorial Reviews

From Booklist

Lyndie Anderson was raised by her career-military grandfather to value both flying and her freedom. As a bush pilot for the San Diego-based Hope International charity organization, she roams the world, bringing supplies and specialized experts to the areas in need. Her current cargo is Griffin Moore, the former leader of an elite firefighting "hotshot" team still traumatized by the deaths of 12 friends on his last assignment. Her destination is a remote and very poor small town called San Puebla in the Barranca del Cobre mountain region of northwestern Mexico, which is currently threatened by wildfire, and, coincidentally, is the closest thing to home that Lyndie claims. In her debut Shalvis firmly establishes herself as a writer of fast-paced, edgy- but-realistic romantic suspense, with believable and likable supporting characters and fiercely evocative descriptive passages. This is the first in a series of three unconnected romances featuring firefighters; the second, Blue Flame, will be released in December. Lynne Welch

The story line itself also did not have much of a plot to it.

Format: Mass Market Paperback
Lyndie is a pilot for a not for profit organization and she flies volunteers around the world. She is hired to fly Griffin to Copper Canyon to help put out a horrendous fire. Lyndie is emotionally reticent and really only cares about flying. Griffin is scarred from a previous fire in which he was the only survivor.

As another reviewer said, the plot felt very repetitive. Lyndie flies Griffin down to Copper Canyon and he helps contain the fire and then flies him out. Then she has to fly him back, etc. It was like repeat as necessary until the two have been around each other a believable amount so now they can let down all the walls they've built up.

To be honest, I don't know why this story didn't click for me. Partly because I wasn't that into either of the main characters, and the only secondary characters that seemed interesting was Griffin's brother and the sheriff/postmaster. If you read this book, I hope you enjoy it more than I did. It wasn't awful, but I didn't really enjoy it.

This doesn't read like a typical Shalvis novel. The plot, dialogue and characters are all so disjointed, it doesn't even make any sense at times. Though the premise isn't bad - fighting a forest fire in a remote area of Mexico - nothing else about this story comes together. Worst of all are the characters, which make or break any novel.

The main male character certainly doesn't endear himself to anyone at the beginning. After an admittedly very tragic event, he has gone well beyond grieving and has been sitting around for a year wallowing in self-pity, leading a totally useless life, and creating notable worry for his family who don't even know where he is. You'd think someone with his background and character (as we're supposed to believe based on narrative description) would be doing something to make the death of his team-mates stand for something, but no, he's just lying around feeling sorry for himself. At least he redeems himself during the course of the book and shows some growth. He's actually rather likeable after the first chapter or so, except for the fact that he's fascinated by...

The lead female character (impossible to call her a heroine) is about an unlikeable a character I've ever read. She's actually downright mean and more than a little crazy. She's miserable and lonely, and has no one but herself to blame for it. Though her early years may have been a bit atypical, they weren't bad. But for some inexplicable reason she's isolated herself and decided to be a really unpleasant person. The author apparently wants us to view her as a strong and independent woman, but she spends an awful lot of time coming across as extremely foolish.

I don't quite know why this book did nothing for me. All the words were there and the character's heartaches, but I just didn't feel the emotion. The story line itself also did not have much of a plot to it. It seemed to repeat itself. There is a fire, Griffen comes to help put it out. They think they have it contained, so he goes home. Then it flares up again and he goes back, once again containing it. He goes home again, and when he returns once more there is another flare up. It's like the author couldn't find anything else to write about. The entire story along with the relationships could have easily been wrapped up in a quick short story without dragging it out.

The other reviews were so good that I was expecting more from this author. I just don't know why I didn't feel the same way about this book as they all did. Then again, I am only one opinion. All I can say is if you pay for this book and then share my same sentiments about it, you will be very disappointed.

Having read a few Jill Shalvis books, I really wanted to like this book. It sounded interesting, but it lacked so much I finally felt relief when it finally ended.

Lyndie Anderson is a pilot for hire. She is a love 'em and leave 'em type of gal because she was raised to be tough. Her parents died when she was young and was raised by her tough as nails grandfather in a nomadic life as a "military brat". With no real roots and never a soft, emotion-filled environment, Lyndie never knew what love was. That is, until a flight to a virtually unknown speck in Mexico needed volunteer firefighters to battle a wildfire that threatened the civilization that resided there.

That is where Griffin more comes in. Tall, strong and battling a serious amount of loss in his life comes in. After taking a year to hide from his loving family and friends to nurse his wounds, so to speak, he gets shanghai'd into volunteering his expertise to battling a wildfire with a team of inexperienced firefighters with antique tools. With the nightmares of his last wildfire battle haunting him, he finds his life coming back to him through dealing with the tough, little spitfire of a pilot that stays to translate to the workers.

With the threat of life, limb and everything else, there is an attraction that both Lyndie and Griffin try to avoid since he is more of a "in it for the long haul" as she is a "wham-bam-thank you sir" type of girl.

When they think the fire is contained and leaving to return to the states, their avoiding the sexual need being averted, they get called back AGAIN. The second trip results in a more physical connection, but they still are fighting each other's needs.
