Equal parts romance and heart-pounding action, this novel will leave you absolutely breathless.

A pariah in his town and home for the results of his risk-taking behavior, eighteen-year-old Jake seeks adrenaline rushes to clear his dark thoughts. When he joins a group of hotshot firefighters to battle wildfires, he struggles with the one risk he cannot take: losing his best friend and secret love, the beautiful Salome Lee. But to Jake, firefighting is like breathing pure adrenaline. And if he doesn’t stop soon—they could all get burned.

    " Wanted to love it--it's about wildfire fighters after all. But I didn't love the main character or the best friend/love interest. Might have liked it better if I myself were an adrenaline junkie like the main character. "
