Annabeth Albert's Hotshots series continues—the emotions and intensity of Chicago Fire with the raw, natural elements of Man vs. Wild.
Smoke jumping is Garrick Nelson's life. Nothing, not severe injuries nor the brutal physical therapy that follows, is going to stop him from getting back with his crew. But when a lost dog shows up on his front porch, he can't turn her away, and he can't take care of her on his own. Thankfully, help comes in the form of his new sexy, dog-loving neighbor. As they work together, trying to re-home their little princess, Garrick can't resist his growing attraction for the other man, even though he knows this guy isn't the staying type.
Rain Fisher doesn't take anything too seriously. He dances through life, one adventure at a time, never settling in one place for too long. When his hot, conveniently buff, neighbor shows up on his doorstep, dog in tow, Rain's determined to not just save the adorable puppy, but her reluctant owner as well. He never expects their flirtation might tempt him into stay put once and for all...
Danger lurks everywhere for Central Oregon's fire crews, but the biggest risk of all might be losing their hearts. Don't miss the Hotshots series from Annabeth Albert: Burn Zone, High Heat, and Feel the Fire.

HIGH HEAT is the second book in the Hotshots series and stars Garrick, whom we met in book 1. He is now recovering from the injuries he sustained in that story but things aren't going as well as he had hoped. Life changes for him when he finds a stray dog on his porch and meets his next-door neighbour's grandson, Rain. Rain is a free spirit with an amazing positive air about him. He always tries his best and doesn't let setbacks hold him back, something Garrick needs right now.
There is instant attraction between Garrick and Rain but they take time to act upon it. Once they do, both sides are happy until life gets in the way again. There is a lot of misunderstanding and miscommunication, as well as doing what you think others want to do rather than what you want to do. Still, there is a great story here that I loved reading. It is not all sunshine and rainbows though. Garrick has to learn about his new limitations even if he doesn't want to and Rain has to figure out just what it is he wants - which is not easy when he receives little support from anyone.
I thoroughly enjoyed this story, especially the cameo appearances with Jacob and Linc. A wonderful addition to the series and I can't wait to see who comes next.
