Review: Burnin’ For You by Susan May Warren

Burnin for YouBurnin’ For You was another amazing addition to the Montana Fire Series. These two characters were simply wonderful to read about. I loved the contrast of Reuben Marshall and Gilly Priest. They appear, at first glance, to be opposites. However, it becomes totally clear that these are both very tough people who have had to work through situations that have left them hurting. I thought that Reuben was such an excellent model of strength and caring.

Burnin’ For You packs in the action and does not let up! It is the novel that answers the question of who is behind the ongoing threat that the smokejumpers have been facing. There were so many terrifying moments in this book! Add to that a fantastic love story that was able to break open after seven long years of these two characters being drawn to each other, and you have a combination that has it all.

I have enjoyed the Montana Fire Series so much and can easily imagine reading these books several times in future years.

(5 stars)

ABOUT THE BOOK:

Burnin for YouHe’s loved her for years . . .

Smoke jumper Reuben Marshall harbors a deep regret—a split second decision he made that cost the life of his crew boss. His paralyzing grief has kept him from pursuing his long-burning interest in pretty, petite smoke jumper/bomber pilot Gilly Priest. Not that he has a prayer at winning her heart. Not only is she not interested in dating a teammate, she’s also the preacher’s daughter. And while Rueben’s not the chiefest of sinners, he’s no saint…

A dark secret that keeps her from trusting . . .

Gilly Priest has worked hard to carve out her niche as a female bomber pilot in the dangerous world of firefighting. Sure she’s small, but she’s made up for her statue in courage, grit and the tenacity to face danger other pilots wouldn’t dare. And yes, she’s noticed handsome Rueben Marshall—who wouldn’t? Dependable and strong, he takes up most of the space in the room. But Gilly’s dark secrets won’t allow her close enough to talk to him, let alone let herself fall for him.

A race to rescue the people they love . . .

When their smokejumper plane goes down in the northwestern Montana mountains, wounding their team, Gilly and Reuben are the only ones capable of hiking out to find help. But when their rescue mission turns out to be a fight for their lives against the elements, a saboteur, and a forest fire, they discover they’ll have to put aside their fears and learn to trust each other. But will trust ignite something they both long for . . .and fear? And can they save their team before tragedy strikes—again?

ABOUT THE AUTHOR:

SusanMayWarren

Growing up in Minneapolis and attending the U of MN, I learned to love city life, although I’m a woodsy girl at heart. Or maybe I’m an adventurer — having lived and traveled all over the world, including Siberia Russia as a missionary for eight years. Probably that’s why my characters can’t sit still, and seem to get into one scrape after another — they’re too much like me! I love God, my family, my country, my church, and feel privileged every day to be able to write stories, that I hope inspire and entertain!
