#Burn (Fever Falls Book 2) by Devon McCormack #LGBT #Audio #Review #MM

Erryn reviews ‘#Burn (Fever Falls Book 2)’ by Devon McCormack. The ebook was published February 2, 2019 and is 316 pages. The audiobook version of this story was narrated by Michael Pauley, released on February 28, 2019 and is 8 hrs and 34 mins long. 

Why I read this book:  I enjoyed the first book of the series and can’t wait to listen to more.



My job is putting out fires – PR fires, that is. Partner in one of the most prestigious PR firms in Hollywood, I’ve lived most of my life helping others stay in the spotlight but keeping as far away from it myself as humanly possible.

Enter Jace Kruse.

#HottieFirefighter is the hashtag everyone is using for the overnight Insta-star who made headlines when a pic of him with a pooch he saved from a runaway vehicle went viral. It doesn’t have anything to do with my life until a major potential client shows interest in an endorsement deal with the internet sensation, and Jace becomes my ticket to stomping the ass of one of my company’s fiercest competitors.

Problem is: Jace isn’t swayed by dreams of fame and fortune. He prefers his down-to-earth life in Fever Falls and has turned down every company who’s approached him to leech off his recently acquired celebrity status.

But where others have failed, I’m confident I can succeed. If there’s one thing I’m good at, it’s persuading. And after a few encounters with Jace, the easy-go-lucky, ever-charming, sexy-as-hell, and surprisingly #topcurious firefighter has me persuading him about more than signing on for an endorsement deal.

He may be good at putting out fires, but Jace sure knows how to start them in the bedroom…and then in my heart. However, between his rising star power and the intensity of my feelings, I know where this inferno is leading, and if we don’t put it out soon, someone’s going to get burned.

#Burn is part of the Fever Falls series but can be listened to and enjoyed as a stand-alone.

What happens when you take one reluctant hero hottie firefighter and put him with a jaded public relations guy?  Well, sparks are going to fly.  Dax Monroe is a career-focused driven man.  To secure his new account, he has to sign Jace Kruse.  Everyone wants their moment of fame and a nice paycheck to go with it, right? Not if you’re a small-town firefighter who is doing what he loves.  He has a great life including an amazing adoptive mother and a super-cute younger brother.  He even has the dog he rescued – the dog whose adventures started him down this crazy journey.  Who knew a shirtless photo of him carrying the dog would turn his world upside down? That he’d become an instant celebrity?

I loved Jace’s earnestness.  There are people in the world who are selfless and enjoy doing things for other people without expectation of return.  While Dax is transactional, Jace is generous.  He’s also straight – or so he believes.  He’s only ever dated women and it’s only upon meeting Dax that he realizes he might have been missing out.  Jace’s coming out process isn’t as painful as it is for some people, but there are still a few hiccups.  Being in the spotlight is not somewhere he’s comfortable being but it’s all for a good cause so he steps up to the plate.

I enjoyed the men’s interactions and I felt they went well together.  I also liked how their individual relationships with their mothers were so important to the story.  Sometimes parents are only on the sidelines and in this case these women helped shape who the men find themselves being today – whether for good or for bad.  I also liked how all of the characters grew as they learned more about themselves.

As for the narration…?  Michael Pauley is, as always, perfect.  He can move seamlessly between the different male characters to the women without missing a beat.  His performances are always enjoyable and this one was no exception.  This was an fun read and I liked going back to Fever Falls for the second time and I can’t wait for future books.

Devon McCormack spends most of his time hiding in his lair, adventuring in paranormal worlds with his island of misfit characters. A good ole Southern boy, McCormack grew up in the Georgian suburbs with his two younger brothers and an older sister. At a very young age, he spun tales the old fashioned way, lying to anyone and everyone he encountered. He claimed he was an orphan. He claimed to be a king from another planet. He claimed to have supernatural powers. He has since harnessed this penchant for tall tales by crafting whole worlds where he can live out whatever fantasy he chooses.

A gay man himself, McCormack focuses on gay male characters, adding to the immense body of literature that chooses to represent and advocate gay men’s presence in media. His body of work ranges from erotica to young adult, so readers should check the synopses of his books before purchasing so that they know what they’re getting into.
