Torch (Take It Off #1) by Cambria Hebert

If you can’t take the heat… stay away from the flame. Katie Parks has been on her own since the age of fifteen. All she’s ever wanted is a place to call her own—a life that is wholly hers that no one can take away. She thought she finally had it, but with the strike of a single match, everything she worked so hard for is reduced to a pile of smoking ash. And she almost is too. Now she’s being stalked by someone who’s decided it’s her time to die. The only thing standing in the path of her blazing death is sexy firefighter Holt Arkain. Katie’s body might be safe with Holt… but her heart is another story. As the danger heats up, sparks fly and the only thing Katie knows for sure is that her whole life is about to go up in flames.

My rating: 3 of 5 stars

Torch (Take It Off, #1)This was an okay NA romance, but I didn’t love it.

The characters in this were both okay, but I didn’t love them. It was unfortunate the way Katie lost her house etc. but I just didn’t care all that much.
Holt seemed to be a hero-type, but he seemed to have achieved an awful lot for his years. I’m not sure you’d find many guys who were fire-chiefs at 24-years-old, and divorced already!

The storyline in this revolved around someone wanting to kill Katie, and it wasn’t really obvious why anyone would be trying to kill a librarian. When it was revealed what was going on, it seemed a little less than believable.

The romance was okay, and there were a couple of steamy sex scenes, which were pretty much all that kept me interested, although to be honest I got bored by them after a while as well.
