One-Sentence Summary: A reckless firefighter works at his Captain’s daughter’s soup kitchen and they learn to balance risks with rules
Review: A new series about firefighters? YES PLEASE! Written by a talented author? COUNT ME IN.
Reckless was a great start to a new series. You meet Brennan, a minor character, in Kincaid’s ‘Pine Mountain’ series but there is no need to have read that before starting this book as this book sets the groundwork for the whole story and the rest of the series.
This is very much an “opposite attracts” and “my boss’s daughter is off limits” story. Alex is a reckless firefighter who serves out his community service in Zoe’s soup kitchen. Zoe just happens to be the daughter of Alex’s over-protective Captain at the firehouse. I like how Zoe got Alex to see the importance of the work she does at the soup kitchen and in turn he helped her expand her horizons and take some carefully calculated risks. As expected, Alex’s job momentarily gets in the way of their happy-ever-after but the story ends with everyone’s career in tact.
I am really looking to find out whose story is next? Cole’s I presume? I am looking forward to Rachel’s and kind of hope there is some inter-house firefighter/paramedic romance in store for us in the near future.
If the rest of the series is anything like Reckless, I think Kimberly Kincaid is definitely going to be one of my ‘Must Read’ authors of 2016.
