AND THE HEAT HAS JUST BEGUN.
Deep in the cool green mountains of the Adirondacks, wounded firefighter Connor MacKenzie has come to rebuild the 100-year-old MacKenzie family cabin - and to be alone. A horrific blaze has left him scarred inside and out and certain of two things: He'll get back on his hotshot crew no matter what it takes, and any woman who ventures too close will not stay long.
Ginger Sinclair has been burned by a different kind of fire. Having just escaped from a bad marriage, she's retreated to the safety of the lakeside vacation town in upstate New York to start a new life. She's done with men, with relationships, with the danger of desires that can rage out of control - until she unexpectedly encounters Connor MacKenzie. As a hot summer on the lake grows ever hotter, they find themselves sharing a cabin and a romance that will swiftly engulf them both.
Never Too Hot is the third book in the Hot Shots Series. Taking place in yet another, all together different, mountain range we get to find out what happened to Connor, the injured hero firefighter from book one. Where book one and two were filled with adventure and action packed scenes, this story is about the emotional journey of recovery. Taking place two years after the first book, Connor has spent countless hours, blood, sweat and tears trying to regain his life psychically, emotionally and professionally after his terrible accident that left him horribly scared. He escapes to his favorite place, where he spent his summers as a child, to wait out the news of his third and final appeal to regain his firefighter status - hoping that if he can work hard enough on restoring the cabin the time waiting to hear back will be more bearable. But when he arrives he finds that his grandparents have rented out the cabin to a beautiful, strong woman. He is forced to share the cabin and all hopes of hiding are banished due to Ginger's uncanny ability to see everything he has managed to hide from everyone else.
Ginger is a wonderful character who is going through her own self-discovery after her nasty divorce. She recognizes the struggle Connor is going through and goes into their relationship with a good perspective of where it might or might now lead. Ginger's boss and much older best friend adds another level of depth to the story as her story begins to interweave with Ginger and Connor's. Since she has known the family for years, she begins to shed light on some of Connor's family background adding even understanding to what has shaped Connor into who he is. This underlying story line is so well interwoven that you will have a hard time not hoping that Connor and Ginger aren't the only ones that will manage to find their happily ever after.
The passion between Connor and Ginger is amazing and makes you wish for your own lake vacation with a chance to go skinny-dipping. Their relationship develops at a nice pace. Ginger's ability to accept Connor just as he is and not let him push her away was very touching. Eventually Connor is forced to admit his feelings and face that his career is over but when he does he realizes that Ginger is all he ever really needed and just never knew it. This is another great summer read and a touching testament to the sacrifice that firefighters face everyday.
That is the way the story starts. Ms Andre has woven three love stories into one. A very good read
The side story of Andrew and Izzie was a def bonus. Love a mature romance showing 2nd chances and hotness.
Tormented after being burned badly as a Hot Shot fire fighter, Conner just needs to escape to heal emotionally and prepare for a fight to save his Hot Shot career.
Ginger has her own reasons for getting away. A bad marriage and a need for some emotional cleanup doing the art she loves.
You just know that these two characters are going to struggle through their problems together and end up in love.
Ahhhhh. Such a wonderful read.
I usually love Bella Andre novels and eat them up. The last couple have been disappointments. While this one is a step up from the implausible last one in the series ( Hot as Sin: A Novel ), neither holds a candle to the one that started it all, Wild Heat , which flawlessly mixed intrigue with steamy romance. I really didn't care for either of the main characters. Connor is a self-indulgent jackass throughout most of the book, while Ginger is a doormat; and the whole last minute addition of an unplanned pregnancy results ina trite story which makes me wonder if this is the same Bella Andre that created such a compelling story with Wild Heat.

Doch das Haus ist vermietet. Seit fast einen Jahr lebt dort Ginger, die aus einer unglücklichen Ehe geflüchtet ist.
Vom ersten Augenblick brennt die Luft zwischen Connor und Ginger. Aber Connor versucht, keine Gefühle für sie aufkommen zu lassen, hat er doch auch die gescheiterte Ehe seiner Eltern vor Augen. Und auch sein Selbstwertgefühl ist ziemlich am Boden. Und wer kann schon einen Mann mit solchen Verletzungen lieben?
Ginger aber ist sich vom ersen Augenblick sicher, dass dies der Mann ihrer Träume ist. Aber als es ernst wird blockt Connor ab. Erst als fast ein Unglück geschieht wird er sich bewusst, was ihm Ginger wirklich bedeutet.
Das Buch ist sehr schön geschrieben und ich kann es Euch nur empfehlen.
