Title: Controlled Burn
Series: Kilgore Fire #4
Author: Lani Lynn Vale
Genre: Romantic Suspense
July Dupree and Dean ‘PD’ Hargrove fell head over heels in love. When PD comes home to tell July the good news about joining the SWAT team as a tactical medic, everything changes.
July can’t fathom why PD would want to be a cop in this day and age. Wasn’t it enough that he already had a dangerous job with the fire department? Now he has to add another, even more dangerous, job to the equation? With so many cruel people in the world who make a sport out of hurting cops just because of the badge they wear, she has to make him understand. But when he refuses to listen to her reasoning, she feels she has no other choice but to issue an ultimatum: her or the SWAT team.
Dean doesn’t like ultimatums. He’s furious with July for putting him in the awful position of having to choose between a dream and her.
July never believes for a second that he’d choose the SWAT team over her, but she is wrong.
A year later, they’re both still in love with each other, but neither one is willing to budge regardless of their feelings.
July’s feelings for Dean haven’t changed, in fact her love for him has only grown. But seeing him living his life seemingly unaffected by the loss of what they had breaks her heart over and over each time she sees him.
Dean has a good poker face, though. He’s just going through the motions of his life until finally, the smoldering embers of his feelings erupt into a full-on blaze of emotion, burning through everything but his love for July. When the smoke clears, Dean wants to know if they can reignite the fire of their love or is he destined to live his life in a constant state of controlled burn?
Controlled Burn is book four in the Kilgore Fire Series and finally we get Dean and July's book. Of course this book has a happy ending, but to get there July has to go through hell and back and Dean is going through his own hell.
Again it's another great book from Lani, I don't think she has every wrote anything I haven't loved and this book is no exception. As with everyone of her other books, I couldn't stop reading once I started and I count down the days until the next one comes out. Lani is one of the select few authors where everything she writes is GREAT. Not sure how many ways I can write what a great storyteller Lani is without sounded like I'm saying the same thing over and over again, so it's pretty simple to say this book is another freaking fantastic book by Lani Lynn Vale. So just go and get it and start reading. If you have never read anything by her, you don't have any idea what you are missing and you need to go back to the beginning and start with the first book and read all the way to this one. It's worth every penny and every second it takes to read. Enjoy and happy reading!
Thanks for another great read Lani and thanks for letting me read and review for you! Another happy reader!!!!
