So far I've really enjoyed this series, I mean how could you not? With hard bodied firemen heroes, smoking hot love scenes, and exciting action-suspense storylines it's always a great ride. Part of the fun in reading these books is also the anticipation of how many trips to the hospital our heroes will have to endure before they get the bad guy and win the girl. Jo Davis just loves to beat up her men and it's become a bit of a game for me counting the injuries. I also like how all the books are connected with updates from past characters and continuing story arcs. Here we get to catch up with 6-Pack, Zach, Julian and their Captain Sean's ongoing struggle with the bottle.
ER nurse Shea Ford has been trying to avoid Tommy's irresistible charm and ongoing advances. She thinks that he's way too young for the strong feelings he brings out in her and that she'd be much safer dating Prescott, a boring city planner. After Tommy lands in her ER (the 1st time) Shea finally concedes to a date and the two fall for each other pretty quickly after that.Read more ›

Shea is very attracted to Tommy but thinks he may be too young for forever. Thinking she may be better off with Prescott the city manager of their town and a seemingly ok, if not boring guy. Seemingly is the operative word.
Things change when Tommy gets hurt and Shea realizes the depths of her feelings for him.
But things change even more with the growing trend of buildings being destroyed for unknown reasons that leads to at least one murder.
LINE OF FIRE by Jo Davis is the latest in her popular Station Five series and in my opinion the next one cannot
get here fast enough. Tommy, Shea and the secondary characters are the type of people that you can imagine hanging with on a weekend and have you care about them almost as much as the main characters. The action is fast paced and will have you holding your breath and hoping that the unthinkable didn't really happen. The love scenes will
have you getting something cold to drink inside of a freezer.
Even though LINE OF FIRE is part of a series it can be read as a standalone, but will have you running back to store to get the rest in the series.
Tommy Skylar's life changed dramatically when his brother Donny was killed in the war. Tommy lost all interest in his possible NFL career and turned his focus to being a top notch fireman. He has struggled with his life choices and even now isn't sure he is in the right place for him. When Tommy becomes hurt on the job he lands at his favorite nurses ER table. Shea Ford hasn't shown much interest in Tommy but he is bound and determined to change her mind.
Nurse Shea Ford was badly hurt in her past and his gun shy around strong athletic men. Tommy sets all of her senses on edge and she fights her attraction to him. But getting to know him she realizes he is nothing like the man from her past. Their relationship grows and becomes deeper then either could have imagined.
Nevertheless there is an enemy out there that will stop at nothing to tear these newly lovers apart. When Tommy is caught in the middle can their love overcome this obstacle?
Line Of Fire is explosive, you feel like you are right there on the front lines fight the fires with these brave men and woman. Tommy and Shea's relationship develops at a beautiful pace. Their relationship with each other and their friends at depth and another layer to a wonderful book. I am so looking forward to the Captains book from Fire Station Five.
Shea is a nurse. She protects her heart by allowing no one close - not even the man she desires and craves all the time - Tommy Skyler. When an accident leaves Tommy a changed man, Shea no longer is able to pretend she feels nothing. And so she takes a chance on her firefighter, and in his arms the world and all her worries seem to go away.
Just as Shea and Tommy fall in love, an unknown presence has Tommy in his sights. With just each other to rely on Tommy and Shea's love has to be enough to keep them alive.
Grab a fan and settle in for one heck of a smoking hot read. Tommy, while young, is mature and knows what he wants. He is sexy, yet grounded and for me, that made him all the more attractive. Shea took me a bit longer to like. I think it was her indecisiveness concerning Tommy. I wanted to yell at her more than once to hurry and take a chance on this loveable man or I would. Fiery hot love scenes and a look inside the twisted mind of a killer makes Line of Fire stand out. Add in the behind the scenes look at the other characters and I could read this book over and over!

Tommy is attracted to nurse Shea Ford, an older woman who rejects his forward pass attempts as she feels he is too young for her. When he is injured during a high story scaffolding rescue mission, they meet up at the hospital. She shocks him when she agrees to go out with him. She enjoys her time with Tommy and him with her. However, after suffering another on the job injury at a warehouse fire caused by an arsonist, Tommy ends their relationship upsetting Shea who has fallen in love with the younger firefighter. Depressed as his second career firefighting appears over but also missing the woman he loves, Tommy begins to believe someone wants to end his relationship with Shea and collateral deaths are acceptable
The latest Firefighters of Station Five (see Under Fire and Hidden Fire) romantic suspense is loaded with plenty of action as the heroic first responders fight fires, investigate arson, and mount rescues. The return of recurring firefighters and their loved ones add to the sense of danger as each risk their lives. The lead couple is a likable pairing, but the age issue is never delved into beyond Shea's rationale not to date Tommy. Still, fans of the Station Five saga will enjoy the exciting Line of Fire.
I'm actually surprised I finished it.. I was hating every moment of the two main characters - Shea Ford and Tommy Skyler - together. When they were alone it was okay most of the time. I WAS interested in the arsonist and the story behind it. It was told from more than just one villain which gave more angles and also an interest to figure it all out. It was quite simple in a way, yet the whole story of it was a bit too OTT for me.
Let's start at the beginning. Tommy met Shea through Zack's wife Cori when she invited her to party with the firefighters, somewhere in the second installment. There was a spark there, yet though Shea was friendly enough to Tommy, she never gave him a chance, seeing him as just a "kid" and nothing more. Like in the previous books, when Tommy is hurt and is brought to the hospital (where Shea works as a nurse) things start to change and finally she sees there's more to Tommy than the handsome ex-jock. It takes a lot of time for Shea to truly trust Tommy and tell him her story and I don't mean her and Shane losing their parents in a car accident.
Tommy also has a sad story of his own, one most of the guys at the station don't really know, but we do, since he mentioned it to Julian in the previous installment. Tommy was a very successful athlete up until his brother, a marine serving across the see, was tortured and killed. Donny's death did a number on the family, living them functioning yet barely. Tommy never felt "enough" compared to his heroic brother, choosing to work as a firefighter in order to "make a difference" yet it was never his true calling. The family dynamics was quite strange including the big melt down with the family? strange at best.
I don't know what happened to Jo while writing this book but I didn't believe any of it. The characters where simply off, not believable AT ALL, the conversations scratchy and disconnected. Tommy didn't even feel like a "guy". He was SO damn cheesy! I don't have another word for it. The things he said to everyone around him about his feelings for Shea didn't feel like any guy alive or half dead would EVER say, no matter how in tune with his feminine side (and let's be real, most girls wouldn't act this way as well..). It made the whole relationship with Shea wrong because I couldn't accept his character as genuine. Shea was okay I guess, but since she was coupled with Tommy, the whole conversations they had, especially the heart felt ones where they bared their souls (and their past) felt unreal and simply not believable. I didn't "buy" any of it.
The suspense part of the book WAS good. It was nice getting more POVs, Shane getting involved was also a nice add, I really want to read his story in the spin off series "Sugarland Blue" of the cops (planned for the end of this year). As usual our hero got banged up pretty badly and a few times (I gotta say he got the worst deal of all the others before him!). I didn't sit at the end of the seat though because of the romance "gone bad" but I was pretty interested to see where it would go and how much the villains were willing to go to get their goals, whatever these were! It WAS pretty obvious that blowing up abandoned houses around town is a good way to get insurance money but there's got to be more than that, right? you have NO idea!
The epilogue of the book was mostly more cheesiness I didn't care for but it DID have a big teaser to the next one and the story of Sean. I wanted Sean to have a more significant part in this one, I wanted to really see what would FINALLY get him into rehab and take charge of his life but since it was all Tommy and Shea I felt unsatisfied on that front as well.
All in all. I didn't like this book. I don't believe Tommy's character, I didn't feel the connection between him and Shea, I would have wanted more of Will (lets call him "the arsonist") and I didn't get how he was "forgiven" so easily even if he did what he did because he had no other choice (?).
I truly hope the next one is going to compensate me for this disappointing installment.
