When Chase Fisk enrolled in the United States Army, it was mostly to escape a dead- end job working with his alcoholic father. The military provided him with a sense of belonging, and his brothers in arms became the family he never thought he’d have. He’s ready to embrace his promotion to Commanding Officer over a group of new explosive tech recruits—but he isn’t ready for her.
Vivian Brooks grew up in a military family and is unlike any woman Chase has ever met. The recently enlisted recruit is beautiful, tenacious, and as steady with her hands as any EOD technician he’s ever seen. She tempts him in every way possible, challenging him at all turns and taunting him with a body that haunts his waking moments and most of his sleeping ones. But as their forbidden romance could threaten their careers if it’s discovered, Vivian’s buried secrets threaten to destroy them both.
I don’t know about you guys, but I have been dying for something new from Caisey Quinn, and I gotta tell you, I couldn’t be more excited for her new series, Nashville’s Finest. The first book in its series, Lit Fuse, might be a novella, but boy does this story ever pack a punch. It sets the scene and introduces us to Chase and Vivian. The connection from with these two was instant and intense. I loved the forbidden quality to their relationship and seeing them deal with their feelings despite their circumstances.
Lit Fuse is a fast paced and exciting read. It was hot, sexy, and super entertaining. I devoured this novella in just under two hours. I was hooked on the characters and their story. I couldn’t wait to see what happened next and I really enjoyed the twists along the way. And the ending…boy does it leave you begging and dying for more. I can not wait to get my hands on the next book in this series and see how everything is going to play out for Chase and Vivian.
