But The Heat is On surprised me. It's a retelling of Light My Fire, book one in the Burning Sky series. The only difference is it's told through the point of view of two of the other characters in the first story. Of the 162 pages, only about forty pages or so is new material specific to Skye and Rio. Honestly, I would have preferred to have just had the new material, even as short as it was, than having had to read three-fourths of the book reliving the same story. Unfortunate because I actually enjoyed The Heat is On with Rio and Skye's story more than Light My Fire, but did not rate it as high because of the repetition.
The short preview of Some Like it Hot, the third book in the series, once again begins in the same spot at the Midnight Sun Saloon to tell the story from Larke and Riley's point of view. This series has the feel of so many of those time loop movies where the characters awake to the same day, ever day. Or the feel of different witnesses to the same event being interviewed to compare stories and piece together what really happened.
I may be in the minority on this, but the retelling of the same story three times from three different perspectives, is not really a plot device that appeals to me. If I could figure out a way to go directly to Larke and Riley's part of the story in Some Like It Hot, I surely would.
As the fire rages on in Alaska, there are prisoners who break free and are on the run. The Heat Is On focuses on Rio who is an undercover FBI agent, attempting to take down a trafficking and smuggling ring while disguised as a prisoner. He’s strong, solid, and protective as the defender of justice even as he struggles with the darkness that he lives with day in and day out. Only his faith shines a little light into his life of duplicity until he meets Skye, a smokejumper who is everything kind, loving, sweet, and tender as well as determined. Plenty of twists and turns in the new plotline makes the story fascinating and the adrenaline of fighting fires and chasing down the bad guys is high and alive in this book. I particularly enjoyed how Skye and Rio clung to Psalm 23 even in their darkest and most threatening trials.
What will book 3 hold?
They are an eclectic group of people-not what you'd normally think of when you think prisoners.
This book highlights Rio and Skye. Skye is a smoke jumper and Rio is a undercover FBI agent posing as a prisoner. Skye froze shortly before the prisoners show up and, in an effort to protect her, the crew chief puts her on watch. There is a prison break and, because of her location, Skye gets caught up in it. Rio, who looks tough due to his previous life before becoming an FBI agent and still acting as a prisoner, becomes her protector. For some reason, Skye feels she can trust Rio. This suspense filled story also shows Rio and Skye fighting their personal demons as well and helping each other heal. Some other reviews didn't like that this has a lot of repeated elements from book 1. That didn't bother me. I felt like I was visiting friends.
Skype Doyle is a Smokejumper from Montana fighting fires in Alaska. She is the only woman on her team and feels she has a lot to prove. When a group of prisoners is brought in to assist in the fire fight, she is kidnapped by a murder/rapist who was accidentally slipped in to the group of prisoners assigned. It is going to take everything she has to stay alive and get back to her teammates.
Rio Parker is an undercover FBI agent who is tired of playing the bad boy. Agent Parker is in prison to help protect a potential witness who is resistant to his efforts to get him to testify against his boss. When the other prisoners stage an escape, he soon finds himself needing to protect the beautiful smokejumper, Skye, and wanting something more in his life and maybe even with her. Would they be able to survive this ordeal and get away without being killed and is it possible for the good guy to win?
I am a huge fan of Mrs. Warren's books. This series is just as wonderful as her others that I have read. I would highly recommend it to anyone who loves a good story with romance and danger.
