Description

Dirk Krause is an asshole of the first degree. His life is a hell of his own making, and he makes everyone around him just as miserable. When he's injured on the job while fighting a fire, he's nearly unbearable to the hospital staff, and of course no one from his unit cares enough to visit.

Lee Stockton is the new guy at the station, so he gets saddled with the job of bringing Dirk a sympathy bouquet from the guys at the firehouse. To Dirk's surprise, Lee sees through him like a pane of glass and doesn't take any of his crap. Lee's determined to get Dirk to stop being a dick just to push everyone away. When their fighting turns to f--king, will the fireworks shine brightly on a possible relationship or leave them with nothing but ashes?

Great start to a fun series

Dirk is a big ole jerk. Nobody likes him at the firehouse and his dad thinks he’s stupid for throwing away a career in finance to be a fireman. He doesn’t really have any friends, and has never had any sort of romantic relationship. It turns out he has to sneak away to back alleys and bar bathrooms to get some lovin’, because he’s gay, and in addition to hating his career, dear old dad is a big homophobe.
Lee is the new guy who saves Dirk in a fire when Dirk rescues a baby at his own risk. Lee gives Dirk the benefit of the doubt, and when Dirk shows signs of batting for the same team as Lee, he pushes Dirk to admit his attraction.
Dirk isn’t going to change his spots so easy and is pretty much a jerk to Lee for weeks and weeks until finally Lee gives up and leaves Dirk to his own devices.
Life is lonely for Dirk and he does some soul searching and groveling and he and Lee begin a relationship. It’s not all candy and roses from there. Dirk still has quite a lot of growing to do, but the two work through their problems and when another disaster puts Lee in the line of danger, Dirk finally figures out exactly how much Lee means to him.
This first book in the By Fire series sets the ground-work for the relationship between the two lovers. Lee shows infinite patience and helps Dirk to become more worthy of his love. I really like Lee as a character – he never backs down or lets Dirk walk all over him, but he’s sweet and genuinely caring and a really good guy, just what Dirk needs.
The sexual tension is pretty hot and the ending is very satisfying, even though there are two more books to follow.
I really liked this book (and the series) and I give it 4 stars.

Audio book:
I was excited to see Peter B. Brooke as the narrator, he had done a really nice job with the Dark Horse series by Kate Sherwood, and I figured he’d do a great job here, too.
He did not disappoint. His gruff imitation of Dirk’s gravelly voice is great and his vaguely mid-western accent for the chief is a nice touch. The story takes place in Pennsylvania and I don’t know where Peter is from, but he sounds like people who grew up in the area. That added a nice layer of realism to the narration.
His narration is just enough “acting” and “background” that it made for a really nice listening experience.

I really liked it and give it 4 stars.

Overall both audio and book: 4 stars

Good Firefighter Story


I picked this book up because.. HELLO, firemen.. However, I was really surprised at how much I ended up liking the characters because of who they were outside of their fireman personas. They were real and I loved them.

Dirk was a jerk, but Lee was the perfect match for him and getting through his hard exterior.

It was short but there was some action with fires, some sexy scenes and the storm from hell all wrapped into it along with one character growing by leaps and bounds while the other one helped him along the path.

The narrator was nice to listen to as he brought the book to life.

I received a free copy of this book to read for Inked Rainbow Reads in exchange for an honest review.

Redemption by Fire

This one is a pretty quick and low angst book about some firemen.

Lee is a newbie at the firehouse who gets the short end of the stick and is basically forced to visit the "jerk" Dirk in the hospital after he gets hurt on duty saving a baby.

I know everyone hates Dirk for the way he acts, but deep down he's a firefighter who saves people and babies, and seriously no one will visit him when he's stuck in the hospital for weeks. I think that just means that everyone in this book is kind of a jerk in their own ways. lol. It seems pretty obvious to me that Dirk is so mean to everyone as his way of keeping everyone at arms length so they don't figure out the truth... That he IS gay, and that he is hiding his feelings from everyone including himself. I am so glad that Lee is there to push him out of his comfort zone and make him realize what is really happening and how he really feels. Dirks dad being thrown into the story is a good way of adding character depth and showing where Dirk is really coming from as a person, and where he learned his actions. His dad is a total bully. Good book. And ready to see where the next portion of their story leads us into the next few books.

Audio - Peter B Brooke does a decent job with this one. The inflection and timbre of his voice is a little off at points, becoming deep of lighter at some parts that don't really match the parts of the storyline at the time, which kind of threw me off. But, it wasn't to the point of me bailing on listening to this series in audio. Overall he did a good job and I am interested to see where he goes with the narration of the next book in this series.

Narration was... Painful to listen

The narration seemed choppy at best. It didn't seem to follow the punctuation and at points I wondered if they read the story prior to recording it. One of the characters voices was just grating and painful to listen too. Read the book - skip the narration.

Cute Short Story

This wasn't bad and it wasn't anything special. The narrator does a great job but the story is weak. I don't know why I keep expecting anything different from an author that seems to turn stories out like McDonalds does hamburgers and they are all variations of the same story. The story is too short to really be too detail, but it is what it is and I'm a sucker for hot fireman. Not worth a credit, but maybe a sale.
