My rating: 4 of 5 stars
Smolder is the first in the Firefighter of Montana Series written by different authors. I love Montana and I love firemen. They are so brave and sexy. This first in series was written by Tracy Solheim. I loved it. It started off with some tension and my curiosity was piqued. Sam and Lauren both had their issues, both of which were realistic. I was rooting for them all the way. Both H/h were written with good personalities, the sexual tension was strong and yet the love scenes were written well. I wanted Sam :). After Sam and Lauren fought their respective demons, they were able to show their love for each other. All though there was interaction from the beginning between the two, and yes, even sex, it took the length of the book for the angst to be worked out. I will say that I did not feel this book was boring or dragged on. I read each page with eager anticipation. I have already pre-ordered the rest of this series which releases, one per week, and am looking forward to the next book which features related characters from Smolder. Highly recommend if you are a fan of anything released by Tule Publishing.
