Andi O’Roarke is the fire chief and has been for fifteen years. She loved her job but it was hard as she had to work hard to make sure the men respected her since she was the only woman in the firehouse. When she meets the arson investigator sparks will immediately fly between them and that will leave Andi wanting something more.
Tucker Fields is an arson investigation sent to a firehouse to look over a case. Tucker will be ready for his job but what he wouldn’t be ready for was Andi, the fire chief. He will want her instantly and will pursue her but they had to be careful to make sure the other firefighters did not get wind of their relationship.
Body Heat is the first book to the O’Roarkes series by Katherine Garbera. I liked this book. There is certainly a lot of heat from the fires and from the two characters. This was a free book that I had gotten on my kindle awhile ago.
So the character of Andi was a woman who fought hard and she had to because she was the only woman in the firehouse. Andi is strong with her command and she had gotten that from her four brothers and father who are all strong willed men. But she had a softer side it was just well hidden. Now, Tucker was a player. He was a love them and leave them kind of guy, and was a very take charge kind of guy. I liked him anyways especially as he was very charming, and he got Andi to open up.
The connection between the two characters is very explosive just like the fires that are written in the book. I will have to say that I thought the fires did get put in the back seat with the book. But I liked that it was character driven.
I liked the O’Roarke family. They were a bunch of big men who protected Andi but also argued endlessly with each other. I can’t wait to read their stories. So the second book to the series is with Rory, Andi’s brother. His is the only other book that is written, I assume the other two brothers will be written eventually, at least I hope. I will be on the look out for the book at my library but I am not sure they have it. I figure I will read it eventually but it just might not be right away.
