Review: BRAVE THE HEAT by Sara Humphreys

When Jordan McKenna ran away from home as a teenager in Brave The Heat by Sara Humphreys, she left behind her high school sweet heart. Jordan has returned to Old Brookfield,  now a divorced woman with 2 young daughters. Her old flame, Gavin Maguire is now the fire chief of the town. Gavin can’t believe that Jordan is back after all these years. He’s ready to pick up where they left off but Jordan is skittish after her failed marriage. Can these two find their way back to each other or has too much time passed?

24497331I think every town needs to have a fire fighter like Gavin. Holy cow! This character is super potent. He loves his parents,  he’s loyal to his friends,  and his interactions with Jordan’s daughters will melt your heart.

Jordan’s character was great as well. She had left Old Brookfield to flee her abusive father,  only to be trapped in a marriage with an equally abusive husband. She was so hesitant to fall in love with Gavin,  putting her girls needs ahead of her own.

This is the first book in a new contemporary romance series. It’s a great read with something for every romance reader : some suspense,  good love scenes,  and a hot guy in a uniform  (yum!). The story was extremely well thought out with great characters throughout the book. If Gavin ‘ s other brothers are anything like him, the rest of this series is going to be beyond awesome.

Book Summary:

The only fire he can’t put out…

Jordan McKenna is back in town, and Fire Chief Gavin Maguire’s feelings when he sees her after all these years are as raw as the day she left. Then he was just a kid wearing his heart on his sleeve. Now he spends every day trying to atone for the tragedy he couldn’t prevent.

Is the torch he carries for her…

Jordan’s life has not exactly worked out the way she expected.
