If you can’t take the heat… stay away from the flame.

Katie Parks has been on her own since the age of fifteen. All she’s ever wanted is a place to call her own—a life that is wholly hers that no one can take away. She thought she finally had it, but with the strike of a single match, everything she worked so hard for is reduced to a pile of smoking ash. And she almost is too.

Now she’s being stalked by someone who’s decided it’s her time to die. The only thing standing in the path of her blazing death is sexy firefighter Holt Arkain.

Katie’s body might be safe with Holt… but her heart is another story.

As the danger heats up, sparks fly and the only thing Katie knows for sure is that her whole life is about to go up in flames.

Character Bios for TORCH

Here is a little information about the main character’s of TORCH! Katie and Holt! A little FYI Katie’s name was originally Meghan. BUT as I was writing Holt refused to call her that. Everything I wrote that he said, he called her Katie. Sooo, I gave him his way and changed her name. LOL!

Katie:

Katie is a young librarian who loves to get lost in a book. She has lived on her own for many years and wants a place to call her own. She’s never really dated and doesn’t have any close friends. She the poster child for being a loner.

Katie has freckles, reddish hair and is very short and thin. Holt thinks she’s tiny. She thinks Holt is huge. Katie also likes to steal bacon off Holt’s plate and she has to sit on phone books when driving certain cars so she can see out of the window.

 

Holt:

Holt was raised in Wilmington, NC by two loving parents. His Dad works in construction. When he was around sixteen years of age he volunteered for the fire department and spent a lot of time at the fire house. When he graduated high school he went into training and then was hired by the Wilmington Fire Department as a fire man.

Holt is a twenty four year old hottie. He has broad shoulders, short, dark hair and drives a candy apple red truck. He maintains that women are not allowed to drive his truck. Holt is a terrible cook and says the only thing he can cook good is cereal.

Oh, and he has big feet.

My Review: 

4 out of 5 stars

HA! For some reason I went into this book thinking he was an artist! BWHAHA! Well ladies and gents all I have to say is: Thank Goodness for Firefighters.

So I received this in both for free for an honest review/blog tour. So I warned you about that, another warning for you that I am going to be honest as I would have if I had paid for it. If you don’t believe me then okay there is nothing I could do about that. But it’s the truth.

Song Choice: “The First Day of My Life” by Bright Eyes, and “Safe and Sound” by Capital Cities

First thoughts: I thought this was a steamy, sweet, sexy story about love. I think was about turning up the heat, and turning on the charm *suggestive eyebrows*. Truly it was a good, light-hearted read about falling in love, and you know… I think you know….seriously you haven’t figured it out? Being a freak in the sheets? Doing the dirty deed? Getting hot and steamy? The birds and bees kids! But do not take this as erotic because it wasn’t it was adult book about people falling in love and having a good time. But wait there is more! MYSTERY!

Thoughts on plot: Well okay so, holy hot way to start a book! I mean come on! A girl tied to a chair, and the world around her is on fire! Not the way you are thinking but yeah it’s okay. Anyways so this book starts off running and I loved it! I love when books do that! But while many attempts were made on Katie’s life, the one suspect is ousted pretty quickly and I figured out other things pretty easy as well. I didn’t feel like this was the majority of the book though, it just added a bit spice along the way. Really the real story was about a girl who had nothing at the age of 15, then built a life for herself, which she again lost. It was about her learning how to accept that we have to take chances in order to be truly happy. While I think at some points, it was hard to tell though if her feelings weren’t ruled by the fact Holt – literally saved her life more than once. It’s one of those things you know… you are a bit on the fence about. But honestly the pacing in this book was insane! I didn’t even realize how far I had read until I surfaced to put a status up because I was about to go to bed! Amazing, just flew by and that is one the most amazing things about Cambria’s writing and I love it!

Characters:

 

Katie (Katie-Cat, Freckles, Ms. Parker): I thought that she was an interesting character, while she was trying to be portrayed as this independent, not needing anyone character, I think that maybe she gave in a little too quickly…I mean I don’t blame her at all, I cannot wait to tell you about Holt but yeah either way. I liked her she was sassy when she needed to be, fun, sweet and brave. As a main character girl she never really ever got on my nerves which is a good thing, meaning she didn’t have those stupid, like legit stupid moments, not the moments I like…anyways different rant for a different time. She wasn’t super like well he can’t love me or anything like that she was very down to earth, admitted her feelings to herself but understood there were certain uncertainties in her life at the time.

Holt: HOLY HOT FIRE-FIGHTER. Holy hot man. Hot. Hot. Hot. Hot. Hot. Hot. Hot. I’m sorry did you not get that? I said he was H.O.T. Oh my god. I wish this man was real. The things he says, uhhhhh um…*wipes drool away*, the things he does…*picks self off the floor after swooning*, the totally amazing man that is he …. *daydreams*. Seriously. If this man was real I would have no problems about kidnapping him and forcing him to marry me. For reals.  Not only is he sort of very Alpha male like, he does it in a really sweet, caring way, yeah he is demanding but never crosses any lines. He just…okay seriously there isn’t a proper way to explain Holt, you really just need to experience him. And to experience him….well you will never go back. I thought Charming was my favorite Cambria man but move aside sweet Charming because Holt is coming through!

 

Want a few moments that literally had me swooning? Kay! You get no choice in the matter I am going to do it either way!

 

“You get to touch me, but I can’t touch you.”

His smile was slow and sly. “Good. I don’t want to share this moment. Not even with you. I’m going to be purely selfish right now, Katie. I’ve been longing to touch you like this since that first night you stayed here. This is my turn. Your turn can wait.” 

 “The thought of anyone else’s hands on you drives me insane. Now I get to be your first. And your last.”

Oh my. 

 

So the ending: yeah it’s the end of their story. And I know from post Cambria has made that you can read this series out of order, and hell if you want to skip this – I don’t know why, then okay, but I am going to continue on. Because well I am really excited about Tease.
