    So the blurb on this one SUCKED me right in It had the promise of FireFighters and Cops and peril and past relationship pain and I just couldn't Say NoThis is Morticia Knight's 5th book in her Uniform Encounters series a series that should be an absolute delight for me given my love of all things copfirefighterEMT but the first book was SO bad I never even bothered to read any of the others But again the blurb got me and here we areMy biggest peeve about firefighter books? When authors use firefighters as a profession in name only and don't give us any on the job action Well I am very happy to say we got several instances of on the job action in Secret Fire with our big handsome MC Fire Marshal Daryl Renyolds We even had some scenes of MC Officer Zach Lawrence being a hero in his patrol uniform gulp Plenty of eye candy for your uniform loving brainAnd the sex? The sex deserves it's own paragraph Apparently Daryl's former boyfriend was a bit of a freak in bed and they liked to experiment with a few non vanilla sexual activities and this just revved Zach's engine into overdrive He and Daryl started practicing some light BDSM that was mind blowing to read since they were men in their 30's who were both first timers and had such a strong emotional connection fans self Made for some awesome sex scenes let me tell youSo that was all the good stuff now comes the bad stuff The actual relationship between these two? Come on I never bought it Daryl was an absolute child about every damn thing Whining and pouting and feeling sorry for himself His inner dialogue drove me crazy and it was incredibly unrealistic Zach was perfect and wonderful Too perfect and wonderful to put up with Daryl's dribble for then one night Nope didn't buy it at all But I pushed that aside because of the good partsAlso there is this sub plot about a nightclub that Daryl likes to hang out in that takes up part of the book that is just noise noise noise Yawn I did not care about it even a tiny bitSo? I'm calling this one a Guilty Pleasure and I am damn glad I read it If you are a lover of the firefighter genre I recommend this one to you wholeheartedly I can pretty much guarantee you will enjoy it To regular MM romance fans who can give or take the firefighter aspect there really is so much out there worth your time and money I would choose first

    4 star review by KimberleyThis is the 5th book in the Uniform Encounters series that tells the stories of National Guardsmen police officers EMTs and firefighters of Mesa Arizona and surrounding areas The great things about theses books is that even though they are part of a series the flow and storylines allow them to be read as standalone booksZach is a homicide detective who is laid back and fun loving He has this thing for Daryl and even though he’s tired of the meaningless hook ups and looking to settle down with that one special man he feels the handsome fireman is way to cranky and angry for his taste Zach’s attempt at trying to get to know the broody Daryl ends in disaster Daryl’s character is surly on his best day but that surliness stems from a failed past relationship The hurt that Daryl has experienced directly affects his ability to trust and is the source of his bitternessI liked reading how Daryl knew that he needed to change and did so even though it was hard to trust again Daryl basically pushes through his fears and opens himself up to the possibility of love and takes that leap of faith it takes to do so At one point I really got tired of Daryl going on about how he was hurt in his past relationship I understood that but it got to be too much at one point in the story Daryl’s fears were somewhat stifling but I got it That’s what made Daryl pushing through his fears and opening himself up that much sweeterI really like this series These books aren’t too long that you lose interest in the characters and the situations that surround them Knight incorporates characters from the other books in the series in a seamless manner You get the back story of these surrounding characters without losing the thread of the current storyline I also appreciate the way that they’re written These characters are diverse in age and ethnicity None of them hop into bed on every other page These are grown men with relatable jobs and life situations There is a bit of bondage in this book but this story isn’t saturated with it This book as well as the others in this series is well written with a great pace Although the ending was a bit predictable I still enjoyed reading how it all played out This series is definitely worth picking up A copy of this book was provided in exchange for an honest review Please visit wwwlovebytesreviewscom to see this and many reviews author interviews guestposts and giveaways

    Cops and firefighters Really any first responder story is always going to be packed with action and hot sexy men At least in fiction that is This author for sure isn't going to write about the lazy cop who's got thirty pounds hanging around his waist and a fondness for sweets HA 'Secret Fire' is Morticia Knight's fifth installment in her 'Uniform Encounters' series I have found these books to be light with not a ton of drama good action and hot sex In essence? Fun And I was just as interested in reading Zach and Daryl's story as I'd been the other guys' booksPoor Daryl Very serious minded and definitely lacking in normal social cues still suffering from his last relationship where his boyfriend cheated on him and extremely hesitant to risk himself or his heart again Zach has finally decided he wants a real relationship not just random hookups but is a little surprised when his friend pushes him towards Daryl the crankiest man Zach has ever seen Slowly though these two men spend time together and agree to date and see where it might lead Both men have a lot to learn about each other and their own insecurities and doubts They also get the opportunity to see how Daryl's serious side can lead him into depression and bitterness whereas Zach's lightheartedness and joking manner can complement each otherThis was a good book with a sweet love story Daryl's insecurities and his inner voice could get a little wearying at times but it all worked out in the end There was lots of excitement and action plus intense sex A confirmed recipe for funNOTE This book was provided by Pride Publishing for the purpose of a review on Rainbow Book Reviews

    275 starsThis is the first book of the series that I have read Luckily you really don't need to read the others to be able to read this one The blurb had me intrigued two alpha males cop and firefighter Was looking forward to a really good story Not what I got through unfortunately While this story wasn't bad Daryl was sort of wishy washy which by the end of the book kind of got on my nerves He spends too much time in his head and doubting everything which sort of made my enjoyment of this book less When he wasn't doubting life and looking for the other shoe to drop the two together were good together

    35 star review by The Blogger GirlsA hot cop a hot fireman one is ready to settle down and one is afraid to try again Sounds yummy And there were a lot of parts to this that definitely fit that bill But then there were some things that just had me struggling to get through it Zach was awesome He’s the hot cop who’s ready to settle down He’s tired of the meaningless hookups but hasn’t had much luck finding someone looking for the same thing His friends push him toward their friend the hot fire marshal Daryl who they think would be perfect for him Unfortunately Daryl has shielded himself from others by being somewhat of an ass He’s uite standoffish and doesn’t want anything meaningless either but suspects that’s all Zach wants They get past their initial conflict though and Zach realizes there is to Daryl than first appeared They really would be perfect for each other Zach is fun and doesn’t take anything too seriously unless he needs to like his job And Daryl is just the opposite needing someone to pull him out of shell to loosen him up a bit Here’s where I had the biggest problem Daryl is constantly whining about how terrified he is of getting serious with someone after his last guy dumped him Ok I can understand that to a point but he goes on and on and on about it At every turn he’s terrified his word of things where the relationship is concerned where his feelings are concerned where Zach’s feelings are concerned That’s the pattern Zach is persistant but eventually even he starts whining about being terrified of things too It just about got to be too much for me But I pushed past it and when I did there were some really great scenes These two were really hot together when they stopped worrying about everything else and just let things happen Daryl even had a delicious kinky side that totally revved Zach up and made for some scorching sex They were probably my favorite parts of this book and they were very well done So aside from that one issue I had no problems with the writing It had some sweet moments some hot sexy moments and a little bit of action I definitely recommend it if you’re looking for something on the lighter bdsm side with some smexy men in uniforms It wasn’t my favorite of this series but still one worth checking out and I’m definitely looking forward to the next one

    REVIEWED FOR PRISM BOOK ALLIANCE35 StarsIf you like a story with men in uniform this may well scratch your itch Darryl is a man that does not exude friendliness After catching his previous partner with a lover he has closed himself off from the world If he doesn’t have friends or lovers in his life he can’t get hurt again He might be smoking hot look good in his firemans uniform but when he open his mouth he has the personality of a cold fishZach is fun loving and popular with everyone that knows him Having recently come to the conclusion that life is ticking on and he needs to think about settling down he allows his friends to push him into a conversation with the prickly fireman at a softball game After less than 5 minutes it becomes apparent that was a huge mistake and he walks away angry with the hot fireman for being such an assWhen Zach is injured whilst at work Darryl takes charge of the situation and shows that there is another side to him and the two begin a tentative relationship Morticia Knight can write a hot sex scene and there are plenty to be found in this book With Darryls previous boyfriend being adventurous in bed and enjoying a little kink the heat is scorching Although their relationship worked well where sex was concerned I couldn’t uite ‘feel’ it the same outside of the bedroom Darryl liked to moan and sulk didn’t easily talk to Zach and was too uick to jump to conclusions He seemed to prefer the drama to a simple conversation When a fire at one of Darryls local haunts raises too many uestions to be considered an accident their working worlds collide and not in a good way Although the fire is a bit of a back story overall the fallout from the investigation may be the thing that decides whether they get their happy ending or whether they have left it too late

    Have you ever read a book and just fall completely for one of the characters? And not fall in the whole “Oh I love you” sense but in the sense that you just want to pick them up put them in your pocket and keep them forever? That is totally what happened with me in this book with DarylOh my gosh That man was just amazing It was impossible for me to hate him even in the beginning because you could just tell that there was something about him Something that he was hiding and I just wanted to find out what it was Find out what it was that caused him to be the way he was and then? When we found out? Holy shiz I totally can’t blame him for itEven though this book was amazing overall my favorite part was being able to follow along as Daryl was going through everything trying to trust again That is what made the story so great for me because it was written in a way that was very realistic It felt like I was following as a friend was going through everything that’s how well it was writtenThis book has certainly made me realize that I need to go back and read the other books in the series because I hope they are all as great as this oneCopy provided for reviewReviewed by Crystal Marie for Crystal’s Many Reviewers

    Zach a police officer goes up to Daryl at a BB after being egged on by his friends to talk to himThe first encounter doesn't go well However both men persist and end up in a relationshipThis was an enemies to livers book and it was certainly that Except I felt that they became lovers a little too fast and then of course we had to go through the miscommunication between the 2 before they got their HEAi am enjoying the series and will continue to read of them

    Surprisingly enjoyed this one A first time reading this author and I'm already looking for to read by herIf Secret Fire is considered not one of her best then I'm eager to read by herGuess I can't always trust the ratings I just finished a book by someone else that was highly rated and it bored me to tearsGo figure right?
