Slow Burn is an entertaining contemporary romance by J.H. Croix. Ms. Croix has delivered a book that is well-written (even though it's in the hated first person, alternating point of view) and loaded with fantastic characters. Maisie inherits her grandmother's home and job as a dispatcher for Willow Brook's Fire & Rescue. Beck accidentally walks in on Maisie when she's showering at the station. Maisie and Beck's story is loaded with drama, smokin' hot sex, humor and a little suspense. I enjoyed reading Slow Burn and look forward to reading more from J.H. Croix in the future. This is a complete book, not a cliff-hanger.
