eARC Book review: All Consuming (Brotherhood by Fire #3) by Jaci Burton


Available March 2nd 2021
eARC Provided by publisher through Netgalley

When firefighter Kal Donovan transfers to the Tactical Rescue Team, he's determined to succeed by giving work one hundred percent of his attention. This proves more difficult at his ten-year high school reunion when he runs into Hannah Clark, his first love. She's still the smart, funny, beautiful girl he loved in high school, but everything has changed. She's divorced, has a son, and has zero interest in exploring an old romance.

Hannah has moved back home after a disastrous end to a marriage that never should have been. Now her only focus is getting her hair salon up and running, and making sure her son is happy. She doesn't have time for love--especially not with Kal. She intends to look forward, not backward, and Kal is most definitely part of her past.

However as Hannah and Kal start spending time together, Hannah realizes that what she's feeling for him isn't nostalgia, but red-hot attraction. Kal's intent on showing her what it's like to be cared for, romanced, and consumed with passion--and Hannah loves it. But she wonders if she has the courage to risk her heart again, even as Kal vows not to lose her a second time.

This is the third book in this series but can stand alone. I have not read the first two books in this series. Kal comes from a family of firefighters. Now Kal is working in a different Dept from his dad and brothers. While dealing with problems with coworkers and adjusting to his new job he reunites with his high school girlfriend. Hannah hasn't seen Kal since he broke up with her before he left for college. Since then she married had a baby and divorced and now she's back home with a new business and making her way on her own. I really liked this book in the beginning. Kal and Hannah instantly reconnect and the chemistry is there. I loved how Kal just fits in wherever he goes. Always thinking about Hannah and her son Oliver but also anyone else in circle. Hannah struggles with trusting him and letting him help her. This comes from her ex-husband who was immature and untrustworthy. After while this got tiring and overdone. Overall I enjoyed the book about three quarters of the way through Hannah's mistrust just got to be to much. Kal did nothing to warrant it. Still wouldn't mind reading the first two books in this series.
