Review: Fearless

Fearless by Kimberly Kincaid
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Kimberly Kincaid’s firefighting duo scorch up the pages in more ways than one in this fun, sexy and exciting read.

“He saw her for exactly who she was, and he trusted her. He didn’t just make her feel good enough. When she was with him, she felt as if she belonged.”

For Cole Everett fighting fires is his life. He’s devoted the past eight years of his life to his career, to the men at his firehouse who’ve become his brothers and to the people he’s dedicated to protect and save. His goal to get a spot on the Fairview Rescue Squad in his same house is right on the tip of his fingers, but he needs to train the rookie who’ll be his replacement in the engine. He didn’t count on being insanely attracted to the curvy spitfire. The draw between them is the least of his problems though because the brazen woman has managed to get on his Lieutenant’s bad side and now he’s stuck between a rock and a very deliciously soft place.

“I’m not a firefighter because I’ve got something to prove. I’m a firefighter because I’ve got someone to be.”

Firefighting runs in Savannah Nelson’s blood. She comes from a long line of accomplished firemen but moved far away from her family to make it on her own and nothing will stop her from becoming part of her family’s legacy. Not the fact that she’s a woman and certainly not the seasoned Lieutenant who’s set on stopping her. Luckily the fireman appointed to train her is not just hot, he’s also fair and is determined to guide her to the best of both their abilities. But knowing that relationships within the same firehouse, can they ignore the heat and connection that’s building between them?

“Resisting the urge to combust with Cole Everett was becoming more and more difficult.”

If a hot fireman is your thing, I doubt you’ll be able to resist a firefighting story with a sexy hero, a vivacious and snarky firewoman with sizzling attraction between them. Kimberly Kincaid provides some of the best well researched story about life in a firehouse with a fast paced plot and captivating characters.

Savannah is tough and Fearless, and perhaps a bit overeager. She’s not just out to prove herself, she also loves what she does and is good at it, even if she does have more to learn especially how to get some anxiety. It’s by far an easy job, and I really respected her for her conviction as did her co-workers.

“In case you haven’t noticed, I’m not really a play-it-safe kind of girl. I’m fearless, remember? I think fate shouldn’t tempt me.”
Oh, to hell with fate. Cole was going to tempt her, long and hard and right goddamn now.

Cole is the perfect balance to Savannah’s impulsiveness. He’s controlled and serious mostly due to his heartbreaking past. As the two of them work together not only does the chemistry between them grow, so does their mutual esteem, connection and understanding about one another. I enjoyed getting to see both their vulnerable sides once they let their guard down.

She was his calm.
His control. His center.
She was his everything.

Of course the no-fraternization rule wasn’t their only obstacle, as they’re both eager to go above and beyond they discover a trail of arson cover-ups which point to alarming foe. So besides the attraction, the heart pounding emergencies they attend which are vividly described, the great camaraderie between the charming supporting characters at the Fire Station Eight, we get a shocking mystery that had me glued to this amazing book.

Fearless is book #2 in the Rescue Squad series by Kimberly Kincaid. This is a sexy and exciting standalone with a pinch of mystery and dash of thrilling fire fighting. This story is told from alternating points of view with a happy ending.
