Chasing Fire - DNF
Almost forgot to list this one. I got about 30 pages into it and started asking myself why I was bothering to read it. It just seemed so trite. A Cut and Paste job from 1000 books she has written before. :(
Guess it's time to check out Mary Balogh out and see if she has another book out. Joan Wolf has, of all things, a christian themed romance out. I guess she is writing what publishers are putting out now days. Still I like her well enough to check it out in spite of my aversion to christian themed books. Most of them are so badly written.
I really need a romance book fix!
The number-one New York Times-bestselling author delves into the world of elite firefighters who thrive on danger and adrenaline-men and women who wouldn't know how to live life if it wasn't on the edge.
There's little as thrilling as firefighting-at least to Rowan Tripp. The Missoula smoke jumpers are in Rowan's blood: her father is a legend. She's been fighting fires since her eighteenth birthday. At this point, returning to the wilds of Montana for the season feels like coming home-even with reminders of the partner she lost last season still lingering.
Fortunately, this year's rookie crop is one of the strongest ever-and Gulliver Curry's one of the best. He's also a walking contradiction, a hotshot firefighter with a big vocabulary and a winter job at a kids' arcade.
Everything is thrown off balance when a dark presence lashes out against Rowan, looking to blame someone for last year's tragedy. Rowan knows she can't complicate things with Gull-any distractions in the air or on the ground could mean the end-but if she doesn't find someone she can lean on, she may not make it through the summer.
