He Battles The Flames…

Nobody messes with Sam Clayton—or his territory. The big bruising ranger is the last line of defense in forest infernos and he’ll go up against anyone who gets in the way of putting them out. Even the FBI tracking a terrorist through the heart of a blaze. But when Sam discovers the agent is ex-lover Olivia Albert, saving himself will be more dangerous than any fire he’s faced before…

She Lives For The Heat…

Olivia needs Sam’s help to survive the heat, but when it comes to keeping her quarry from detonating a major strike, this Bureau agent is calling the shots. Except when Sam’s hard body and expert hands are reigniting a second chance that could be hot enough to burn forever…

OK, now I will admit there were some fantastic suspenseful moments throughout this book, Reburn as a romance just didn’t work for me.

I would generally expect in my romance reads that the couple would at least appear on the same page together or having met within the first chapter or so. It was 28% into the Kindle edition when Olivia and Sam finally meet up. This is just a little too far into the story for my liking.

While I am glad they weren’t just having random hookups for the sake of it in the middle of a raging forest fire, there just wasn’t enough romance or romantic situations within this for it to truly be a romance novel. I didn’t quite get Olivia and Sam as a couple – some of the sexual tension and chemistry seemed a little unreal and forced. Anne Marsh has built the suspense and the action really well in this story, but I just felt as if it took over the whole story rather than being a part of it.

I’m still keen to check out the rest of the series, as it shows real promise. However I really can’t say that I will be revisiting Reburn.

My rating: 2 out of 5
