"Buchman has written another unique storyline with vivid imagery, technical proficiency and characters with distinct voices who stand out and apart from others in the series. He's mastered the art of bringing together love interests of varying and strong personalities, but who perfectly balance each other out... The romance here, as always, is believable, emotional, sigh-worthy at times and, last but not least, fire hot." - RT Book Reviews, 4 Stars
" Buchman skillfully weaves the pulse-pounding action of aerial firefighting with military intrigue, wrapping it around an emotionally rich romantic core to deliver a satisfying tale. " - Publishers Weekly
"Robin Harrow is one of the more interesting characters in the series, and I so enjoyed seeing her find her feet or should I say her seat in the MHA while she slowly but surely figures out the secrets of love and success." - The Good, The Bad, and the Unread
"[A] solid, enjoyable, action-packed read perfect for those who love strong characters, both male and female, and a romance that offers a real partnership." - Book Gannet Reviews
"As always, Buchman does a superb job of balancing technical details and the nitty gritty of fighting fire with the more tender emotions growing between our couple. FLASH OF FIRE makes my pulse pound doubly, from the danger and intrigue as well as from the sexy escapades. Once again, Buchman delivers a masterpiece of military action and romance." - Fresh Fiction

I found it hard to like Robin. She was abrasive and frankly a little slutty in her attitude. Many of her thoughts are about having some summer fling with one of the pilots or how much she was peeved about how Emily, the pilot she is replacing, treated her during the flying evaluation. Robin even considers sleeping with a married pilot, but doesn't as he is the husband of the main mechanic. Yetch! Mickey isn't much better. One look and he's ready to jump into bed with Robin. The attraction between these two is just too sudden and extreme. Usually there is some build up, but not here.
Sadly not even the extra assignment beyond the firefighting that is part of this series can't push the book beyond a bare three star rating, in my opinion. What happens felt dull rather than the usual kick of excitement and adventure I felt in previous books in this series. If you're looking to try this series don't start here. The first two novels are great and the third is pretty good, but this fourth one is a disappointment.

I liked Robin from the start. She was talented and badass but you could still relate to her. I especially loved her realistic reactions to being the new girl in the group. The author writes all the characters and how they interact in a fun way that makes you believe they have faced the ongoing dangers of firefighting together for a long time. There is a lot of technical information about fighting fires and the aircraft used but it did not detract from the lovely romance. Mickey is every girls dream, not only in sexiness but in how he lets Robin be Robin. This is another exciting installment in the Firehawks series and I loved it.

Robin Harrow wants more to life than just being a waitress at her Mom's diner, in her Grandmother's truck stop. She joined the National Guard and learned to fly, but due to so much time being grounded and not being able to fly her copter she leaves. Still yearning to be something more she applies for a very coveted position as a pilot for Mount Hood Aviation. She never expected to get the job, but she got the job before the interview was over. Mickey Hamilton was just thinking about a summer fling with the new girl but before he knew it; her skills at flying, her attitude, and her beauty, and he was head over heals and ready for a permanent commitment. Robin believes that the Harrow women don't marry, her grandmother didn't, her momma didn't and she won't either. So when Mickey confesses his love for her she runs scared even if in her heart she knows she loves him too. The fire season isn't easy on them, right off the bat they are battling a Canadian Fire and after a short reprieve they end up on their way to Korea to help put out a fire on the border of North and South and also a super secret directly from the President mission.
Overall, this was a good book and a fun and entertaining read.
