Burned” by Emery Sanborne
previous relationship left him burned, the last thing
Andreas Sullivan was willing to do was get involved with
another fellow fireman, especially one as arrogant and as
forward as Bobby Ford. Unfortunately, avoiding Bobby was
not an option with his new position at the firehouse. It was
Andrea’s responsibility to take the new man under his wing.
Bobby quickly made it known he was more interested in
getting to know Andreas outside of their firehouse duties,
which made resisting Bobby a difficult thing to do.
Burned” was okay. The build up was pretty good between Bobby
and Andreas, but I felt their attraction was purely sexual.
The sex was satisfying, however, it never felt like a
romantic relationship was developing between them until more
than halfway through the story. When I felt more for them
as a couple and was starting to really enjoy the story, it
ended and that was disappointing. It was like a big chunk of
the story still needs to be written.
in the Dark” by Jamie Craig
moment changed Anthony Saunder”s life forever. Trapped in
his car after a horrible accident Anthony held on thanks to
the voice that cut through the darkness and kept him calm as
he was cut from the wreckage of his car. A year later
Anthony is still adapting to life without his eyesight, but
he’s getting along well. There is one thing he wants to do
now and that is to meet the fireman whose voice and kindness
helped him through one of the scariest moments of his life.
When he finally meets Fireman Dan Middleton face to face,
even without his sight, Anthony knows Dan was the most
attractive man he has ever met.
in the Dark” was also pretty good. Dan and Anthony were
great, and I really liked Anthony’s mom and the way she
allowed Anthony to be as independent as possible. I thought
the relationship between Anthony and Dan progressed rather
quickly with everything involved. There were no real
obstacles and for this relationship I felt there should have
been plenty. On a whole the story was good, but it wasn’t of
the Jamie Craig standard that I love and expect from this
Hearts Afire – April was an easy read. Both stories
were nice but lacked real substance to the overall plot. I’m
not saying they were not good stories, but I felt they could
have been much better. I feel it’s the conflict and drama
queen in me that felt with the given plot of the stories
there should have been much more conflict and drama.
