Joey Silva is strong, sexual, a hairy hunk powered by his unquenchable sex drive as much by his passion for fighting fires. Arriving as the newly named Deputy Chief of the White Pine Fire Department, Joey is trying to prove he’s worthy of this important job. Sex should be the last thing on his mind. But one man, a young, impressionable volunteer named Gil Keane cannot hide his obvious attraction to the burly Joey. Yet it is another man, quiet newcomer Nick Lynch who commands Joey’s attention, even as the man’s past remains cloaked in mystery.

These three men find themselves linked by attraction, by temptations that threaten to undo them, by what they want and what they cannot have. As a bitterly cold winter falls on White Pine, placing the residents of this isolated Adirondack town in danger, a series of unrelated fires will forever connect them, until finally their own raging passions explode. But it’s a devastating secret that, when exposed, will ultimately decide their fates.

In this third book of the White Pine series, following SECRET FLAMES and HEAT OF THE MOMENT, Joey Silva stands as Adam Carpenter’s most virile, masculine creation yet, a man hot enough to leave scorch marks in his sexual, fiery wake.

Like hot hunky firefighters with tons of drama?  A Raging Fire is the third book in the White Pine Firefighters series by Adam Carpenter. This book can be read as a standalone without any problems. The author does a great job putting so much story into one book. This book is packed with tons of emotion that kept me on my toes the whole way through.

Joey Silva is a firefighter form a neighboring town that has been appointed acting deputy chief while the regular Chief is away for the next two months. He is a big and burly man with a never-ending sex drive. He’s a very strong character who has something to prove. In the end, I really liked Joey. It was very tough because he evoked such strong emotions through out the book.

Gil is a volunteer firefighter who is obsessed with Joey. He’s had a rough life. At twenty-three years old he’s still trying to find himself. He acts at times without thinking which leads to trouble.

Nick is fairly new to the station. He’s trying to hide the secret he carries. He doesn’t want to drawn attention himself. Joey is attracted to Nick immediately. The chemistry between Joey and Nick is off the charts. The sex scenes were hot and steamy and I loved that Joey and Nick battled themselves as they fell for each other.  Their relationship was awesome to read about.

However, I was not fond of the two competing story lines. One of the story lines was Joey and Nick and the other story line was about Gil and him finding himself. The author switched between the two in a way that was hard for me to follow and felt more like two books instead of one.  I also wish I’d been shown the ending, instead of a summary.

Overall, though, this was a good story despite the flaws. The author lets you see the story from each of the main characters’ points of view so the reader can understand each character better. The emotions of all the characters kept me reading until the very end. If you like hot firefighters with a lot of drama at the fire station then this book is for you!
