Taber Delane is lucky to be alive, but his career as a firefighter ended the day a beam snapped, resulting in a crushing spinal injury. Most of his friends are willing to give him space, everyone except paramedic, Deacon Hall.
Deacon hasn’t met a challenge he couldn’t tackle and he knows Taber needs someone in his corner who isn’t afraid to stand up to the big bad fireman. The longer he’s around Taber, the more the sexy vulnerability of the man comes through. Deacon finds he doesn’t just want to be Taber’s live-in caregiver, he wants a chance at the passionate man beneath the stubborn shell.
A shell that is cracking, no matter how Taber tries to hold it together. Deacon being in his home starts to open him up—and open his eyes to the man Deacon hides from the rest of the world. Without seeing it coming, Taber soon craves more. A lot more.
Now if only Deacon can get Taber to see that it isn’t so bad having him there to assist. Even if and maybe especially when Taber is naked, dripping wet, and angry as hell.
If you have read the first three stories in the Firehouse six series by Draven St James, I am sure you are as eagerly awaiting Driven by Fire as I was. It is Taber and Deacon’s story.
If you have read book three, you know Taber was gravely injured during a fire, and he is currently confined to a wheelchair. Paramedic Deacon is roped into being Taber’s live-in assistant. Of course, sparks eventually fly.
There isn’t a lot in Driven by Fire to be surprised by. Everything happens about as you would expect in an erotic romance of its type. There is hot sex, some second guessing of the main characters attraction, and eventually a sweet romance. I enjoyed the club scene where we were shown that just because Taber is in a wheelchair doesn’t mean he can’t stand up for himself and his man. It is probably my favorite scene in the book.
I spent a couple of enjoyable hours in Taber and Deacon’s world. There wasn’t anything earth shattering or life changing about this book, but I don’t think it was meant to be that kind of story. It was supposed to be hot and sweet and entertaining. It was. I was happy to see Taber get his happily ever after. I was also happy to see Michael and Simon obviously happy, as well.
There are still stories to tell in this series. Though I am not usually one for overlong series, I need Cody’s story as well as few others. We also need to see certain wedding coughGrey and Micacough
