Sleeping Beauty.... In reverse!

Zack fights fires and saves lives, yet his own thirst for life has run dry, until he comes to the rescue of the sharp-tongued exotic dancer named Corrine Shannon who soon has the normally shy hero burning out of control.

But just as they are consumed by flames of passion, they find themselves under fire from two relentless enemies with fifty million reasons to succeed. Can they withstand the heat while trying to save their own lives, or will their new found romance be extinguished  as fast as it began?

The second book of The Firefighters Of Station Five Series and the main focus is on Zack Knight, the FAO of Station Five and somebody going through a heck of alot and the only family he has to rely on are his fellow firefighters, when he lets them in. On his travels to work he rear ends Corrine Shannon, after his collision with Corrine, Zack finally makes it to work to be called out to a MVA and Corrine is once again brought into his life and world, the journey for them is one you defiantly think is written in the stars. Zack owes Joaquin Delacruz the better part of three quarter of a million dollars due to his father gambling but all is not as it seems and as you read Under Fire it all starts to unravel. Corrine has inherited fifty million dollars but won't touch it due to the fact that it belongs to her dead husband Alex, she up'd and left him due to reasons you read about. Her brother brought her a house in Sugarland but this house connects Zack and Corrine way more than you can imagine. What entails is a story of love, trust, emotions, shock and above all a couple who make it through all the odds thrown at them and they have alot thrown their way.

Once again I was unable to put this book down and it held my attention, as I thought it would. The characters draw you in and make you want the best for them. Jo's writing has a way of doing this to you. Even though each book is focused on two main characters, you still get your fill of the rest of the Firefighters from Station Five I'm already dreading finishing the Series, I for one don't want The Firefighters Of Station Five to ever end.

"Don't sweat it, fireboy. You can't afford me."

"In truth, she hadn't been able to take her eyes off the way his rain-splattered shirt clung to the hard muscles of his chest. Had feasted on the sight of his wet pants plastered to his long legs and tight, perfect rear end."

"Don't they stop at red lights where you're from, Forrest Gump?"

"No. A man like Zack was a hero everyday of his life. She'd been too blind to notice."

"Okay, um..... I once read Stephen King's IT. Worst mistake I ever made. Didn't sleep for a month."

"And, boy, were those boxers pink. Electric pink - with bright yellow happy faces all over them. One smiley, larger than the rest, graced the front escape hatch, a strategically placed tongue sticking from between its lips."
