All Fired Up by Morticia Knight

 Officer Shawn Everly patrols the Strip. Fireman Trent Marshall saves him when danger strikes. But it’s uncertain whether Trent can save himself from getting his heart broken by Shawn.

The party never ends on the Las Vegas strip, but neither does the danger. Officer Everly is new to the beat, having recently relocated to Vegas from Los Angeles. Foot patrol on The Strip is a demanding assignment because he’s up close and personal with the public. But what he’d really like to do is get up close and personal with Station 32’s hunky fireman, Trent Marshall.

Trent has been a fireman for over ten years and is dedicated to his job. He’s built tough and is a no-nonsense man of few words. At a local blood drive, Trent meets the handsome new officer on foot patrol, but won’t let himself get too close. He’s lost love before when his policeman lover was killed in the line of fire.

During an emergency, Trent’s over-protective instincts kick in when he believes Shawn is in harm’s way. He ends up embarrassing and angering Shawn in front of their fellow officers, which seems as though it will end any hope of Trent having a chance with the young man he can’t push from his mind.

Shawn can’t decide whether he wants to punch or kiss Trent. Kissing wins. Once they spend some time together away from the stresses of their jobs, they find that they’re not just compatible—they’re combustible.

But Trent can’t seem to accept that there are hazards that come with working in law enforcement. Right as they’re discovering how much they mean to one another, the danger escalates on The Strip. The underground vigilante group, The Citizens Against Immorality, have raised the stakes. Will Shawn and Trent be their next targets?

Reader Advisory: This book contains scenes of violence and the use of sex toys. It is best read in sequence as part of a series but can be read as a standalone.

I’ve been a fan of Ms. Knight’s books ever since I read the first one.  I can’t help but grab them up when given the chance because they are just that good.  Even when there are things that I don’t really enjoy about a particular things about them, I still do enjoy them.  Kinda confusing hu? But that to me is a sign that an author is that good, when you are still drawn into the story and don’t want to put it down.

One thing that I enjoyed about this book was while it was an insta-love story, which I don’t usually enjoy, the couple, Shawn and Trent, went through some pretty serious things.  I know I’m personally a fan of the anguish type books, and this one does have a fair amount of that in it at certain times. 

I was shocked while reading the story that I enjoyed Shawn’s character more than Trent’s.  Usually I go for the damaged men, but for some reason Shawn just seemed to stand out a lot more in my mind than Trent did.  Don’t get me wrong, I did still like Trent, I just didn’t connect as much with him.

I thought that the storyline was really good; there was a lot of action, suspense, drama, and action that happened during it.  The only thing that I didn’t personally enjoy was that it was kinda predictable.  While I did still enjoy the story, I was hoping for some more twists and turns through it that would keep me on the edge of my seat.

Overall though, I did still enjoy the story quite a bit and I really think that Ms. Knight has another great series on her hands with this one!

Also, I am Crystal Marie, and Yuppers, I approve this book!
