Blaze is the story of Luke and Keira, two former fire fighters who gained paranormal abilities after being injured in a chemical explosion.They and the rest of the team are being pursued by the ruthless government rogues that created the chemicals and is now testing them on humans.
Luke and Keira had been a couple about three years before. In this story, after a long separation, they meet again when assigned in their new roles as federal agents to a Waco-style shoot-out. Together, they rescue a bunch of children who were just about to drink the Kool-aid. Among them is a beautiful little boy who speaks only Greek, and with whom Keira has a deep and inexplicable connection. During the adventure, Luke and Keira find that their attraction to one another is stronger than ever.
I really like all the characters in this series. Swan excels at making each of them different, and at creating riveting plotlines. Mateo, the aforementioned little boy, is adorable and adds extra warmth to an already tight team.
I like Luke and Keira as individual members of the team. What I don't like is their relationship as a couple. They argue constantly, and sometimes it's camaraderie and sometimes it's just plain passive-aggressive or mean. Keira's childhood baggage has made her noncommittal, and her love for Luke is constantly short-circuited by fear; she pulls him in, then pushes him away, over and over. They seem immature, and their sex is more rough than romantic. They're my least favorite couple in the team. These issues may not bother you, though. It's just my opinion.
My favorite is still Fever, book one, with Teague and Alyssa's story (You must read that one!).
The series might be "old" but my interest in reading them is still high. I'll pick up book three soon. Can't wait for Q's story!

The only pisser I have is not knowing the order of books to read by the title. I purchased this through Amazon and the started this book in the series first. Could we have Ms. Swan or Amazon note the order of books outside of me doing a lengthy independent search of publishing dates? Thank you.
