DEEP BURN: Station Seventeen Book 2 by Kimberly Kincaid
Publication Date: June 13, 2017
Genre: Romantic Suspense/ Contemporary Romance
Firefighter Shae McCullough is all-in, all the time. When her reckless response at a fire earns her a two-week penance filing paperwork for the arson investigation unit, the rules and routines are enough to bore her senseless. But the discovery of a possible arson at a murder scene has her instincts fired up, and when Shae is assigned to assist Remington’s elite intelligence unit with their investigation, she’s all too ready to jump in with both boots first.
To tech and surveillance expert James Capelli, logic isn’t just a job requirement, it’s a way of life. He’s less than thrilled to work with Shae, whose impulsiveness threatens his sanity and whose curves threaten his composure. Despite their differences, they uncover a case bigger than anyone could have expected—along with an attraction that burns deep.
But this killer is no stranger, and Capelli’s got a dark past. Can he and Shae outsmart a ruthless murderer, or will his secrets bury them both?
I immediately liked Shae and Capelli. She was brash without being reckless and frustrating, and he was analytical while still being personable. (I really liked Capelli!) They fit together perfectly. Throw in a diabolical bad-guy and you have a good story. It was fast paced and laced with some smoking hot romance – great combination. If I had to say anything, it would be that the ending seemed a little too easy; I was still satisfied but kept waiting for something. This is a fun read with characters that stayed with you long after the book ended.

Kimberly Kincaid writes contemporary romance that splits the difference between sexy and sweet. When she’s not sitting crosslegged in an ancient desk chair known as “The Pleather Bomber,” she can be found practicing obscene amounts of yoga, whipping up anything from enchiladas to éclairs in her kitchen, or curled up with her nose in a book. Kimberly is a 2011 RWA Golden Heart® finalist who lives (and writes!) by the mantra that food is love. She resides in northern Virginia with her wildly patient husband and their three daughters.
