eARc Book review: Consumed (Firefighters ) J.R. Ward
eARC Provided by publisher through Netgalley
From the #1 New York Times bestselling author of the popular Black Dagger Brotherhood series comes a brand-new novel about arson investigator, Anne Ashburn, who is consumed by her troubled past, her family’s scorched legacy, and her current case: chasing a deadly killer.
Anne Ashburn is a woman consumed...
By her bitter family legacy, by her scorched career as a firefighter, by her obsession with department bad-boy Danny McGuire, and by a new case that pits her against a fiery killer.
Strong-willed Anne was fearless and loved the thrill of fighting fires, pushing herself to be the best. But when one risky decision at a warehouse fire changes her life forever, Anne must reinvent not only her job, but her whole self.
Shattered and demoralized, Anne finds her new career as an arson investigator a pale substitute for the adrenaline-fueled life she left behind. She doesn't believe she will ever feel that same all-consuming passion for her job again--until she encounters a string of suspicious fires setting her beloved city ablaze.
Danny McGuire is a premiere fireman, best in the county, but in the midst of a personal meltdown. Danny is taking risks like never before and seems to have a death wish until he teams up with Anne to find the fire starter. But Danny may be more than a distraction, and as Anne narrows in on her target, the arsonist begins to target her.
Ann Ashburn has had a complicated life with a father she could never please and a mother she lost respect for and a brother who just doesn't understand. She took a job with the fire department following in her father and her brother's footsteps. Not that her brother ever wanted her to. One bad decision at fire scene changes her life drastically and she has to reinvent herself. Danny McGuire is one of the best fire fighter's around and the same fire that changes on Ann changes him as well but in a different way. This story starts out fast. It becomes a nail biter right from the beginning and i found myself chanting NO WAY, NO WAY! I think the author keeps you on your toes through out the story. Whose the bad guy? At the end of the book you find if you were paying attention at the beginning it was right there. The one problem i had was that at times the author used sentences that were a bit complicated to follow and took me out of the story. Overall though it was a great start to the series. Ann and Danny have to fight their own demons and figure out their relationship all while trying to figure out whose trying to kill Ann. I'm excited to see where J.R. Ward goes next with this series.
