Will their passion burn out of control?

Connor Wabsik’s career as a firefighter is on the line after he punched out his commanding officer. Redemption is possible in the form of a move to a sleepy California mountain town, but it will mean leaving his old life behind. What he doesn’t know is that his destiny waits for him in Riesgo. Fate has paired him with a human mate, Andy McGuire—a man with secrets of his own. Connor is fighting to protect the town from a dangerous firestarter. When Andy’s life is threatened, will Connor be able to keep him safe, too?

Detective Andy McGuire is unlucky in love, but when he meets Connor, the handsome new recruit to the Riesgo Fire Service, things start looking up. How can he stop a serial arsonist from destroying everything he holds dear? And as passion threatens to burn out of control between him and Connor, what will happen when Andy learns that the man he loves might not be what he seems?addtogoodreads_zps55cd15da16Listening to Andrea LeeTAG

So for me and series that are longer than three or four books I tend to get a love hate relationship with them. And this one is no different. What I loved most when I started it ( this series) and still do is the fact that these stories are told with little or no interaction between the characters from previous stories to the point it’s almost like reading a standalone each and every time. That’s also a hate point, at first it was kinda cool, but now it’s like here we go again, one lone lion trying to find his place in the world. Away from his pride. No clear reason why. (except bk 4) And that’s the other thing that bothersome for me, the ‘shifter’ part.

Okay enough with the L/H

If you take the shift part out, and frankly it’s easy enough to do. You’ve got a pretty good story.

Andy lives in this cute CA town, has the house and wants the man but is having an issue with that part.

Conner just got hired on to the fire department in said town, they both have an instant connection and want to explore further.

These two are good for each other, they both know the score in and out of bed. Both are willing to deal with the work side and them exploring the pleasure side was eye opening.

Even though the who done it was pretty obvious, I enjoyed reading along while they tried to figure out the clues. Glad it all worked out in the end.
