The quick of it is that Grace has been giving Julian the brush off for quite some time but the planets align and she decides to give him a chance just as all hell's breaking loose with serial killers, drama from the past rearing it's ugly head and their lives being in danger. Whew. Yeah. There's a lot happening here and it was exciting.
I'll admit right from the start that I am completely and utterly smitten with Julian Salvatore. He's without a doubt my favorite of Station 5's firefighters. Swooning just a little bit over here, people. Whew. Swooning just a little bit. He's always been a bit prickly and kept to himself and, well, could be a jerk and I was just dying to know why. Turns out for damn good reasons but thankfully he's also one seriously yummy hero that totally tugged at my heart, could be sweet and just an incredible gentleman.
"Grace?""Hmm?""Just want you to know...for as long as I live, you're the only woman I want to wake up next to."
I mean. omg. Total girly sigh. lol I loved Julian and Grace together. I wasn't sure about her but she grew on me. Lawyers are always a tough sell but by the end I was rooting for her just as much as Julian. I would have liked to see her and her need to analyse things to death explored more though.
Between an amazing romance, heart pounding suspense and emotional turmoil from multiple corners Hidden Fire kept me absolutely riveted and engaged until the very last page. It's a keeper for sure and a fantastic addition to the series.
