Overall, Into The Flames Anthology is a group of really quick reads that are enjoyable and fun. There's some danger, angst, laughter and fun - makes for stories that keep the reader reading and wanting more. I received the following four books from the anthololgy in exchange for honest reviews.
"Hook Me Up" (Adele Downs) is a really quick story - it starts off with our heroine stuck in a tree! Of course, the sexy firefighter arrives to save the day! I loved the chemistry between these two - and the whole story just made me smile. It is a super quick read and I would have very much liked it to have been longer. I thought the ending was slightly rushed due to the brevity of the story. (received copy for honest review)
"Rescue Me" (NJ Walters) - this one has a touch of the paranormal which brought a whole new take on the story. I really liked Frank and Martha and together they were sweet and meant to be. It broke my heart that the road was long for them. Frank, being such a big, strong firefighter, was so vulnerable it made him such a sweet guy. Martha was terrific - her acceptance of him was perfect. (received copy for honest review)
"Slow Burner" (Sam Cheever) Here's another short story that captivated me. We have Hilda and Duncan- reunited but through a tense situation. This one has some mystery and danger and some great character relationship. Ms. Cheever has done a great job of including many elements of a good story into such a brief tale. (received copy for honest review)
FireBrew (Liz Crowe) - This is a pretty intense read that kept me captivated from the start. It's a bit darker but not any less entertaining. Jane is pretty much a mess and George isn't much better but together, it seems, they are better, or are they? Ms. Crowe writes a story where the characters lean towards real yet are a bit extreme. She shows that life isn't always pretty and people have lots of baggage to live and deal with. It's how they deal that makes life so interesting. (received copy for honest review)
