Brave the Heat 
Brave the Heat (The McGuire Brothers #1) by Sara Humphreys

The only fire he can't put out...

Jordan McKenna is back in town, and Fire Chief Gavin Maguire's feelings when he sees her after all these years are as raw as the day she left. Then he was just a kid wearing his heart on his sleeve. Now he spends every day trying to atone for the tragedy he couldn't prevent.

Is the torch he carries for her...

Jordan's life has not exactly worked out the way she expected. A divorced mother of two with a failed acting career, Jordan's biggest concern about coming back to Old Brookfield was seeing her first love. But when a series of suspicious fires breaks out, Jordan and Gavin realize that dealing with the sparks between them may be the least dangerous of their problems.

4 out of 5 stars

This was pretty fantastic! I love the story of Gavin and Jordan reconnecting, it was so sweet. I thought they were great characters, good history and details for both. There was a nice amount of animosity between the two as well as playfulness and longing.

Gavin was so wonderful! I just wanted to hug him, squeeze him, and love him. Devoted and sweet, I couldn't get enough of him. Jordan was great as well, I love her strength and determination. They were great together and I absolutely enjoyed their story, it was engaging. It was such a sweet story, so loving, and there was a nice amount of heat between the two.

This story had me completely pulled in. Really good pace and development. I was curious about what would happen next. I thought it was a lighter story with some heavier content touched upon, it was laid out well. I liked the secondary story that was in play, it added a bit of drama and suspense. 

I really enjoyed all the characters that were introduced and the playfulness of Gavin's brothers. His parents were awesome as well. Jordan's daughters were adorable and I love how Gavin was with him.
This was just a wonderful story. Heartfelt and romantic! I love stories about reconnecting and this was definitely a great one!
