Aaron Evans embodies every complication Wren Tucker knows he doesn’t need. The tempting go-go dancer refuses to leave him alone and his attempts to get into Wren’s bunker pants don’t stop at the club–even the walls of the Firehouse aren’t safe. Wren’s control is only so strong, and his desire for Aaron is turning into a clawing need that’s digging through the many reasons keeping Aaron at bay.
Aaron is two cold showers away from hypothermia if the hot fireman of his dreams won’t give in to the lust he sees blazing in Wren’s eyes. The only issue is, Wren is a forever man, and Aaron doesn’t have that in him to give, not with so many secrets locked behind the glitter and gold of his beautiful world.
As Wren begins to cave to Aaron’s delicious demands, he gets a deeper view of the tarnished landscape Aaron exists in. A murky pit of drug addiction that’s slowly dragging Aaron under, and Wren is going to have to fight like hell to save Aaron from it, to even have a chance at a new beginning with the man who brought him out of the shadows.
Sometimes the life of the party hides the most pain. This sentiment certainly applies to party boy and go-go dancer Aaron Evans. We met Aaron early on the Firehouse Six series. He was a go-go dancer at the Firehouse Six favorite gay bar hang-out. He also became part of their little circle thanks to his friendship with Simon.
In Lost in the Fire, we finally learn more about him. We learn about his pain. We learn about his hopes and dreams. We learn that he needs more help than even he is willing to see. We also learn that he has fantastic friends for support. He also has to learn this lesson. We also break our hearts as he comes to realize he has to take care of himself before he can be the man he needs to be for himself, and for Wren.
While the first four books in this series deal with some serious topics, I found this installment the hardest to read. We go deep with Aaron. We slide into the abyss with him. But we are there with him as he find the light and goes towards it.
I don’t think Aaron and Wren’s story is over. They are just starting.
