I went into Reburn thinking I was continuing Smoke Jumpers series only to find out there is a spin off called The Hotshots. Oh, that didn’t disappoint me one bit. I love these men who put their lives on the line to put out forest fires.
Reburn is the story of Sam and Olivia who met when they were young and now meet again while Olivia is chasing a domestic terrorist through a forest fire. When Olivia was 18, her family took a camping trip where Sam has grown up. Sam, 23, and Olivia slowly fall in love over the course of the summer, but Olivia has career plans that she isn’t willing to give up on. So at the end of the summer, she says goodbye and he gets a promise out of her she will write. He writes, she doesn’t and soon Sam joins the Marines for a tour before coming back home to settle down.
Olivia goes on to become an FBI agent who is looking to capture her sixth prisoner, she’s the closer. When she tracks the guy to the forest, she unwittingly gets caught up in the fire raging through. Sam finds her and starts leading her to safety. The two instantly combust with long ago memories and emotions that never really went away.
The story isn’t long and can be quickly read in one afternoon. We do get to see Evan and Rio Donavan, heros from the Smoke Jumpers series. I enjoyed how she connected the two series, but also let them go their own ways with some overlap.
The couple still has a long way to go to making this relationship work, but the two know they love each other and even after ten years, time and distance has done nothing to diminish it. This is a wonderful book to curl up on a rainy day with and hope the flames stay in the book and not jump out to you.
