Love burns white-hot in this first scorching romance in an all-new trilogy about a family of firefighters from the New York Times bestselling author of the Play-by-Play novels and the Hope series.

Firefighter Jackson Donovan doesn't look back—as a rule. So when his past comes roaring back to life in the form of not-so-damsel-in-distress Becks Benning, the last thing he wants to do is relive old times. No matter how tempting she makes it seem...

Now thanks to his two interfering brothers, Becks is living with them while she looks for a new place and tries to pick up the pieces of her tattoo business that went up in flames. Which means a grown up, smokin' hot Becks is in his house, sharing meals, and digging up old wounds. And despite his better judgement, the more time he spends with this smart, artistic, incredible woman the more he wants her in his bed—and his future.

Becks always had it bad for Jackson. Unfortunately for her, not much has changed--he's still honorable, hard-working, sexy as sin—and closed off. But there's more than one way to get to a man's heart and if Jackson doesn't want to recall old memories, she'll just have to help him make new ones. Because now that she's found Jackson again, she's not letting him go.

 

HOT TO THE TOUCH is first book in a new Brotherhood by Fire series by Jaci Burton that revolves around a trio of brother firefighters. This book reunites the eldest bro with a blast from his past in a twist on a friends to lovers type story.

Rebecca AKA Becks is quick to catch the reader’s sympathy when she is about to hit rock bottom when her tattoo shop is damaged due to wiring problems left unattended by a no-good landlord and she’s suddenly without a place to earn money, or a place to live. Fate seems to be looking out for her when she’s suddenly reunited with some old friends who offer her a place to crash.

Jackson is sullen and brooding when it comes to dealing with the subject of that past, so he’s less than thrilled to have this person his brother’s are fawning over suddenly interfering with their quiet life. He doesn’t want to reminisce about the old days … he lived them up close and personal and wants to forget it all.

I recommend this book to anyone enjoying a good firefighter hero, along with a close knit family and a drama filled past to delve into as the book plays out. I’m looking forward to more to come in the trilogy.
