Overview

IF YOU CAN'T HANDLE THE HEAT . . .
Callie Hayes is the hardworking manager of the Blue Flame, Arizona's most remote, relaxing guest ranch. She's given everything to the ranch, body, heart, and soul-three things that go haywire when her sexy employer suddenly shows up. Their intense, stormy past has taught Callie to never mix business with pleasure. But something about Jake is different now . . .

San Diego firefighter Jake Rawlings knows the ranch he inherited from his father is safe in Callie's capable hands. After being injured in a high-profile rescue, Jake decides to recover in solitude at the Blue Flame. He may have left the fires behind, but he hasn't escaped the heat; Callie is just as hot and irresistible as he remembers. Now coming home doesn't seem like the best idea-as the sparks between Jake and Callie threaten to burn out of control . . .

## I couldn't stand the hero which completely ruined the story for me. First of all, as always I hate when authors feel the need to write their heroes as man-sluts. "He could have a different woman every night for an entire year and not repeat." Seriously? And that's supposed to endear him to the reader? And he hated the ranch and all the people until the last chapter. Wanting to leave so bad. Every day. Ugh. I wish she would've ended up with Tucker. Now there's a guy I can get on board with.

When I saw that Blue Flame was the second in an unconnected series, I thought I'd have to go buy the first one, White Heat, because I enjoyed Blue Flame so much. Found it on Amazon, and the cover didn't look familiar, though the title did, so I checked out the description. Sure enough, I had read it, though my copy was an ARC, so the cover art wasn't familiar. Here's the thread for White Heat: White HeatLike White Heat, Blue Flame has a firefighter hero. And also like in White Heat, that hero is both heroic and wounded, and totally irresistable. There the similarities end. Well, except for the good writing and emotionally satisfying story.Jake Rawlins is a wounded firefighter--both physically and emotionally. When he's injured rescuing a teenage boy from a burning house, unable to return to work, facing a lawsuit, and hounded by reporters, he has only one place to go--Blue Flame, the dude ranch left to him by the father he never knew.Callie Hayes is the ranch manager with an unhappy past of her own, including a one-night-stand with Jake. However, Jake's the love-em and leave-em type, and, even worse, he's planning on selling the Blue Flame, threatening not just her livelihood but her home.Rounding out the cast of characters are Jake's half brother Tucker, who believes Jake abandoned him, Amy, a young abused woman who's working as the cook, a pair of cowboy brothers, one with a drinking problem, and Callie's best friend Michael.All the characters are realistic, with their problems, worries, hopes, and dreams. Jake's arrival at the ranch just before the spring season's first customers combines with perplexing and increasingly frightening sabotage to shake things up for everyone on the ranch.The romance is emotionally satisfying, all the more so because, while I knew Jake and Callie would end up together (the book said "romance" on the spine, after all ), I didn't know how they'd manage it without one of them giving up the life they loved.There are also some funny moments, when city slicker Jake helps out on the ranch, and many poignant moments between Jake and Tucker, and between Tucker and Amy. Best, of course, is watching Jake and Callie fall in love against their better judgment.I've been recommending this one to my friends who like firefighters, and particularly to the ones who like wounded heroes--which is just about everyone.

This was a really good book about Jake leaving town to escape the publicity of a rescue that didn't go as planned.  Jake goes to the Blue Fame ranch and sees Callie who is running the ranch for him.  The sparks ignite between these two, but strange things start happening after Jake shows up.  Jake also has to try to mend fences with his half-brother.  This is another great Jill Shalvis book and I can't wait to read more in this series.

A large grey tom stalked in, fur rippling in weird way. A white pattern laced his pelt, making it look like he had cracks aling his body. Ice blue eyes sharp, he gazed around curiously.

{O-o W, did you perhaps Roleplay Misty-Something- in ThunderClan back then?} &squares CrackleFlame bounded in, his red-oak coloured pelt twisting against the tugging winds. "Hey Guys!" He announced energetically. &square

Poppy hissed as she trod on a thorn. "Having trouble?" An amused voice asked behind her. "Silver! Have you been following me?" Poppy growled accussingly. "O-of course not," Silver stammered innocently. "Stop lying," Poppy rolled her eyes. "Where are you going?" "I don't know. Looking for a home, I guess," "Want help?" "I don't want to join your group! I don't care that you fell apart soon after you lost your great leader, Fire something." Poppy hissed. "It's Firestar, and we could use members. I believe you're a descendant of one of the cats of the old Thunderclan. You look like what I've heard described of Ferncloud." The tom replied. "You think I care? And I assume you're descended from your great leader, Fire, uh, star," Poppy spat in response. "Actually, yes, my mother's father's father's father is Firestar. And if you won't join, fine, we'll find cats who actually care." Silver stalked off into the trees. "I never want to see that mouse brain again," Poppy muttered. "I heard that," Silver called. Poppy traveled across the moor until dusk. She found a dip in the ground. It was spacious, but not well protected. 'I prefer the forest,' she thought as she dristed into sleep. (Like it?
