Review: Fearless by Kimberly Kincaid


Print Length: 368 pages
Publisher: Zebra (July 26, 2016)

From Goodreads.com: The Temperature Is Rising… 

Firefighter Cole Everett's life revolves around the firehouse. Committed to saving lives--and to the guys who always have his back in the most dangerous moments on the job--Cole's focus is a coveted spot on the Fairview Rescue Squad. When his captain asks him to mentor a rookie firefighter, he jumps at the chance, hoping it will help to prove his skill. But the new "guy" is none other than Savannah Nelson, a female firefighter as stubbornly determined as Cole is, and a whole lot curvier in all the right places . . . 

Savannah won't let anyone extinguish her dream of fulfilling her family legacy and becoming a top notch firefighter--and she's happily surprised when strong-willed, sexy Cole is willing to give her the chance she deserves. Concentrating on the job isn't always easy when the heat between them flares higher every day, but Savannah won't give up--not even when one of Station Eight's veterans seems bent on trashing her reputation. To stop a string of possible arsons, Savannah and Cole will need to eliminate every distraction--but can they let their love go up in flames?

My Rating: 5 stars out of 5

FINALLY. A firefighter romance that captures the essence of being a firefighter and belonging to a firehouse. The hazing, the joking, the people you just can't get along with. 

FINALLY. An author that knows it is called turnout gear and bunker pants and doesn't liken it to an "alien life form". 

I loved this novel. Savannah is one of those characters who knows what she wants and isn't afraid to go after it. She's determined, and willing to do whatever it takes to fulfill her dreams (and get over her fears). She was the perfect balance to Cole who often seemed too serious for his own good. The supporting cast of firefighters and EMTs each brought something different to the story - and they made it come alive. If you have never been around firefighters, then it is hard to understand the level of familiarity between them - and Ms.Kincaid captured this perfectly. 

When you add the element of mystery and danger to an already good story - you end up with a five star read. And that is just what happened here. Is there really an arsonist in the fire department? Or is it someone else entirely? And will everyone make it out with their careers intact? 

Overall - I would recommend this story to anyone who enjoys a romance novel (and who doesn't mind some steamy sex).

DISCLAIMER: I received a complimentary copy of this novel in exchange for my honest review. This has not affected my review in any way. All thoughts and opinions expressed in this review are 100% my own.
