Senses and Sensations: Book Three
Just off work one wintery evening, EMT Jack Waters comes across a blazing building, and he sets out to do his job. A day later he wakes up in a hospital, suffering from severe burns. For a man who values his beauty, the injury is devastating.
But Jack hardly has time to process what's happened. Waiting by his bedside are his cop ex-boyfriend, Kevin Thompson, and his fireman rescuer, Luke Kennard, who both seem determined to compete for his attention—burns or no. Jack pushes Kevin away, fearing the man will want nothing to do with him now, and seems to be proven right when Kevin leaves without a fight. The scene is set for seductive, playful Luke to begin a flirtation with Jack, soothing his fragile ego.
When new fires break out all over town, targeting rescue personnel, clues point to someone close to Jack. He survived one fire, but he might not be so lucky next time. For it seems he is pursued by a relentless foe. If he isn't careful, the flames will reduce him to ashes… unless the love of two men burns him first.

I'm a fan of Susan Laine's writing, I have to confess. I love her heroes, the men that she writes about. I love their failings, their fears, their strengths and their passions. And this particular book also has a great action and suspense theme running through it which makes it all the more readable. This is Book 3 in her Sense and Sensations series.
EMT Jack Waters is injured in a fire while trying to rescue what he thinks are people stuck in a burning building. He's badly injured, his face and body burnt. But even when he's lying on a stretcher in pain, someone still finds the time to flirt with him.
Luke is a fireman, one of Jack's rescuers. When Jack wakes up in the hospital, his brother Jordan and his occasional lover, Kevin Thompson, are waiting for him.
And so the story begins around these four men, with Susan's usual flair in creating realistic characters and settings, creating conflict and humor, and making men vulnerable and strong all at the same time. Jack is a man well aware of his physical attractiveness so to be burned, his beauty marred, is something that eats away at his soul.
It takes all Kevin's support, love and commitment to bring his lover back to being the man he once was. The fire that burned bright in the building also burns in their hearts, their love for each other deeply seated. But the flames begin to flicker and warm once more. Add Luke into the mix, a man fiercely attracted to Jack, and you have the makings of something that may well combust in sheer ferocity.
Susan Laine draws you into their world, makes you feel for them as these men worm their way into your heart. Of course, there's conflict, jealousy, tenderness, despair, intrigue and suspense as the situation for Jack grows more dangerous with each passing day. But with perseverance and the love of a good man, all things are possible.
This book is an excellent read and I'd say without reservation that the whole Sense and Sensations series is well worth the effort.
