Gabriel Raines has risen from his dirt poor youth to be a major force in the real-estate development field. Seems someone is out to destroy Gabe's success by setting fires. Gabe isn't sure what to think and latches onto the suspect the police capture. But it's a troubled teen who has a staunch defender in Mattie Baker.
Architect Mattie Baker gives back to the community by working at the Family Abuse Center. She just can't believe that one of her young teens has returned to his fire starting past. Mattie is convinced that Angel was not involved in setting the fires so she must turn Gabe to her way of thinking.
Mattie joins forces with Gabe to determine who could be setting the fires. Spending so much time with Gabe has Mattie exploring a side of herself she didn't think existed. A passionate side that burns hotter then the fires destroying Gabe's livelihood.
As they uncover who could be involved the danger turns towards them. Will they be able to solve who could be the arsonist before the arsonist sets the last fire?
The Raines of Wind Canyon series continues in Against the Fire. Its fast paced, tantalizing read. Gabe and Mattie both are at turning points in their lives and their connection is incredible in its intensity. Kat Martin books are keepers for me and I can't wait for Devlin Raines story in Against the Law.
Someone is torching his construction sites and when a young man who Mattie is counseling is falsely accused her path collides with the rock hard Gabe and she is going to make him change his mind or else. He quickly realizes that accusing this boy is the wrong road to be traveling down but any road where Mattie goes he just might have to follow. She goes out of her way in her career as an architect and volunteer and trusts so few people that when Gabe comes on too strong her sense of flight kicks in. Gabe is a man used to getting what he wants so the chase is on even though it is derailed by another fire and another construction site burned to the ground. The apparent fact that these fires are personal, not random makes everyone jumpy but Gabe also wants to protect Mattie and do a little pouncing perhaps of his own.
Gabe and Mattie search for answers while the arsonist is getting more aggressive and the attacks more vicious. Gabe has some people angry with him as everyone does but he can't think of anyone, including ex-soldiers that carry this kind of grudge. Women may have been scorned but did they take their vengeance this far in seeking pay back, Gabe was not buying that simple answer.
The nights are lighting up with Gabe and Mattie and he is wearing down her defenses even though she likes playing some cat and mouse games with him and has a very unusual secret she is keeping from him. Mixed signals are driving Gabe crazy but not having Mattie full time in his life, sleeping in his bed and planning a future together is just not what he wants to think about. Solving the crime and sending the arsonist away forever sounds better and then he and Mattie can hopefully have a life - plans are great aren't they?
Love this 2nd book in the series it was captivating, thrilling, scary and romantic which is a great combination. You really see so many suspects and no one that fits the criminal profile so when it all comes together you as the reader are completely shocked which is just as it should be. The back story with Mattie's friend is so sweet and having Gabe's brothers involved make it all the more well-rounded. Thanks to Kat Martin for a knock down great book.
