Product Description

Discover New York Times and USA Today bestselling author Anne Marsh’s sexy SEALs series!

Former SEAL Rio Donovan is one hundred percent pure, sensual trouble. Home from the front lines, he has a new mission: fighting fire as a smoke jumper. He won't back down from the flames or a dare and he loves putting it all on the line when he parachutes into the heart of a wildland fire. When the fire camp gets a much-needed new player, however, Rio lands in uncharted territory. The jump team’s newest member is sexy, strong—and female. She’s supposed to be just one of the boys, but Rio burns to claim her one heated kiss at a time. This jump, Rio Donovan’s putting it all on the line. Body and heart.

Kissing a fellow smoke jumper would be career suicide and Gia Jackson has worked too hard and too long to earn her spot on the jump team to jeopardize it all now for a man. The love-em-and-leave-em boys of summer aren’t her type and she’s hiding a few secrets of her own, but, when her chute tangles with Rio’s on a jump, he’s thrown into her arms. Literally. She’s held firm on the fireline for years—but can she hold the line now against Rio’s seductive charm?

By Jo-Anne B. TOP 500 REVIEWER on March 11 2015
Format: Kindle Edition
This story is about Rio Donovan and Gia Jackson who are smoke jumpers. Rio is a former SEAL who owns Donovan Brothers smoke jumping business along with his two brothers. Gia is Rio's jump partner. She is a Grad student who is spending the summer fighting fires as a smoke jumper. They have very dangerous but exciting jobs which they both love.

The main characters in this novel are just fantastic. I thoroughly enjoyed getting to know them.

Gia is the only female smoke jumper at Donovans and is treated like one of the guys. She likes it that way because she is a very strong woman who is determined to handle everything on her own and never ask for help.

Rio is now a smoke jumper who had a very rough childhood. Lucky for him he and two other boys were taken in by Nonna who raised them right. Rio was a highly trained SEAL who worked undercover in third world countries, finding and eliminating drug grow ops.

I felt sorry for Gia and Rio because they are attracted to each other but feel they can't do anything about the attraction since they are jump partners and Rio is technically Gia's boss.

What a captivating tale. Ann paints her world before the eyes of her audience. She brings this entire story to life in a 3D manner that allows you entrance into its deepest, darkest points. This was fascinating but so realistically written that it was scary at times.

I highly recommend this exciting story.

My Rating: 4.5 of 5 ⭐️

Smoke jumper on the Donovan Brother's jump Team, Rio Donovan has a reputation of a love them and leave them kinda guy. His two brothers already solidly committed in loving relationships, Rio couldn't see himself going down that risky path. Normally one to face any challenge, give him a raging forest fire and he would be front of the line to jump out of the plane, anything long term when it comes to relationships seemed too much of a hassle. That is, until his new jump partner showed up earlier in the summer.

Her second summer jumping, but first time with the Jordan Brother's team, Gia Jackson put her heart and soul in her work. She was determined not to let the fact she was female distract from the fact that she could perform as well as any other guy out there and despite her family's concerns about her health, she was managing just fine. If only she could stop herself from being too distracted by her boss and jump partner. But when she ends up with Rio in her arms on one jump that almost goes horribly wrong, all bets are off.

Celebrating the successful conclusion of what could have been a disastrous call, Gia and Rio find themselves high on life and a bit of alcohol, kissing outside Gia's door. One taste turns out to be not enough for either, and despite concerns around mixing professional and personal involvement, keeping their hands off each other turns out to be impossible.

When during a jump, Rio and Gia are first down, trying to get out of the way of the fire, they bump into some illegal activities on the mountain, they are now not only chased by the fire, but by criminals as well.

This is my first book by Anne Marsh & I really enjoyed it. Former navy seal Rio can't keep his eyes off his jump partner Gia a meteorological phd student who fights fires during the summer. They are put in danger when during a jump they're stranded on the ground by shifting fires & An illegal drug grow op. Gia catches sight of the faces of members of the drug gang & Rio goes into protective mode. They can't deny the heat between them and give in causing some serious changes in their lives. Great first read, can't wait to read the next book.

HASH(0xa5f4aa08) out of 5 stars Has Great Potential Dec 28 2014
By Nom de Plume - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
This is not my easiest review to write and it is very difficult to lay out all the problems I encountered without re reading the book. What I can say off the top of my head is that Burns so Bad starts off very promising. Anne Marsh builds the scene and paints the players very well. She knows enough facts about smoke jumping to make for great visualisation and believability. The dance scene at Ma's Bar is great and puts the reader in a front row seat. I loved how it was written. The dialogue is strong, believable, and witty. Alway a plus.

Sadly when we reach the 20% mark things begin coming apart. The spelling, tense lapses, and repetition begin causing enough distraction to impact reading pleasure. By the 50 % mark the story is not just bordering on overly repetitive but it becomes contradictory and continuity suffers. One moment X person has A viewpoint, and then suddenly it switches 180 degrees. Things really start to get confusing when the drug runners enter the picture. The scenes are no longer clearly delineated and some parts are skimmed over while others are overly described.

All in all this reads as a very good first draft of what could be a really great book. I would suggest that the author take another look at it and then do some reworking and have a couple of proof-readers take a look at it. I ready hope she does because this really could be a very enjoyable read.

HASH(0xa5f4ac54) out of 5 stars poor editing, poor consistency, poor... Jan. 14 2015
By ButtonLady - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
This could have been a fairly good book, as there was some interesting new angles (for me with the fire thing), but ridiculously poor consistency WITHIN a scene as well as throughout the book made this impossible to finish for me. The author didn't seem to remember which character was where, doing what, and at times, even what they'd done yesterday. Some elements were a big part of the progression of the plot, and when the basic facts of the timeline kept changing, I lost it. It sucked. Add to that some sloppy writing here and there - please. Leave this one, until a proper update (rewrite) has been done. Then, and only then, this book might be edible..

This is a well written story and I enjoyed it but the editing is soo very poor. Why would a good writer let her work out to the public with such bad editing. Someone is not doing their job. The errors are bad enough to be distracting

After thoroughly enjoying Jack and Evan's stories, I was anxious to get to Rio's. The drama and chemistry were great. Unfortunately something seems to have happened with the editing in this book as it appears no one proof read it.

HASH(0xa5f4af6c) out of 5 stars Only okay - too many discrepancies and errors. Dec 31 2014
By worldwide traveler - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
I really wanted to like this book more. The beginning was okay and writing was pretty good, but it was the story line and discrepancies that in the end annoyed me too much and took me out if the story. It read like a few scenes were added in the middle but later scenes were not updated to include what happened in them (thus huge discrepancies) and then maybe vice versa - scenes were removed but there are conversations that still seem to reference them. It actually made me think maybe I had imagined a few scenes, but no, I went back and they are there. It also seemed a bit choppy and rushed in parts.
