Review: A Son for the Mountain Firefighter by Melinda Curtis

A Son for the Mountain FirefighterThis was a great second chance love story! What a journey these two main characters went on. Jackson grew so much throughout the entire novel, learning that he needed to be there for his family in a way that he never had been before. I liked how the reader got a peek into his heart and realized that he had loved his family all along, but did not show them by being there for them.

Lexie was a great character, too, and she loved Jackson so much. She was a strong woman who was doing her best to make it through some very emotional and stressful times. It was clear that these two characters loved each other and their journey back to a better marriage the second time around was wonderful to read about. This was a clean story, but I do want to point out that there were two or three light curse words for those who are sensitive to that.

I really enjoyed this story and am looking forward to reading the next book in the series.

(4.5 stars)

I received a complimentary copy of this book. All opinions are my own.


A Son for the Mountain FirefighterHot Shot firefighters are brave. They battle forest fires on the ground with little more than shovels and chainsaws. It’s physical work and a young man’s game. But there comes a time when youth gives way to maturity, when priorities shift, and the door opens to love. The Mountain Firefighter series follows four firefighting friends as they grow, change, and transition to their thirties – although they might never truly settle down!

His job or his family…
Jackson Garrett is a Hot Shot, one of an elite team who fights forest fires. More than once he’s saved the lives of the people on his crew. And more than once, Jackson knows the reason he’s made it out alive is Lexie – his good luck charm and one true love.

A marriage in peril…
Lexie Garrett doesn’t feel as if she ever had a husband. With Jackson always away, she’s practically raised their daughter alone. There’s no doubt Lexie loves Jackson. But will he be there for her the way he says he will? Now and forever?

A traditional, clean romance with no cheating, no cliffhangers, and a guaranteed happily-ever-after.
