Nothing beats getting out of the concrete jungle and into the quiet of the forest. Website designer Scottie Ness is taking a well-deserved vacation from the grindstone, and he plans to spend it in the solitude of Washington's Gifford Pinchot National Forest around Mt. Adams. He's prepared for everything—except the lightning storm that traps him in a wildfire.
The firefighter who rescues him sustains serious injuries and ends up in the hospital. Jax Quintero might be abrasive, but the guy saved his life, and Scottie wants to thank him. As they spend time together during Jax's recovery and exploring the state's landmarks when he's released from the hospital, Scottie discovers there's more to Jax than a smart-ass adrenaline junkie. Jax reassesses his opinion of Scottie as an arrogant city boy who has no business in the mountains. Though Jax's wounds prevent them from taking things as far as they'd like for a while, they can't deny the heat building between them—and this is one fire they don't want to put out.

It's great to read a book that has nonstop action. It's even better to once in a while read a book about absolutely normal people building your average everyday relationship. There's something sweet and charming about that; which is why I adored ON FIRE!
Scottie is a graphics designer about to take his vacation in the wilderness. He's the safest camper you'll ever meet. The weather takes a turn for the worst and you have yourself a forest fire!
Enter Jax. The steamy hot firefighter who saves Scottie's life. He starts off a bit of a jerk... so he's a bit rough around the edges. Once Scottie and Jax take the time to get to know each other and their quirks, sparks fly. It was quite interesting to see how their relationship develops. Also, not every scene is a sex scene. It was refreshing to read about two people genuinely wanting to get to know each other and not for sexual reasons, but to genuinely build a solid relationship.
I would totally recommend this for anyone looking for a quick, slightly realistic romance! (It is fiction after all!)
