Book Review - Heat Exchange by Shannon Stacey

ABOUT THE BOOK


Lydia Kincaid's shipping back to Boston, but she's not happy about it. She left to get away from the firefighting community—her father was a firefighter, her brother's a firefighter and, more importantly, her ex is a firefighter. But family is number one and her father needs her help running the pub he bought when he retired. Soon, Lydia finds it hard to resist the familiar comfort and routine, and even harder to resist her brother's handsome friend Aidan.
Aidan Hunt is a firefighter because of the Kincaid family. He's had the hots for Lydia for years, but if ever a woman was off-limits to him it's her. Aside from being his mentor's daughter, she's his best friend's sister. The ex-wife of a fellow firefighter. But his plan to play it cool until she leaves town again fails, and soon he and Lydia have crossed a line they can't un-cross.
As Aidan and Lydia's flirtation turns into something more serious, Lydia knows she should be planning her escape. Being a firefighter's wife was the hardest thing she's ever done and she doesn't know if she has the strength to do it again. Aidan can't imagine walking away from Boston Fire—even for Lydia. The job and the brotherhood are his life; but if he wants Lydia in it, he'll have to decide who's first in his heart.

REVIEW



This is a great character driven romance. Lydia’s complicated relationship with her family makes her interesting and relatable. Aidan also has a complicated relationship with his family that would have been nice to have explored a little more, but still made it easy to understand the choices he makes and how important being a Firefighter is to him. The secondary characters were also all well written and make me look forward for future books in this series. This is more than just a light summer read, but still quick and enjoyable.


OVERALL RATING - 4.5 STARS!


MATURITY RATING - 18+ a little steamy
