Sam MacKenzie is a wildland firefighter with few peers. He's utterly fearless - there's no one waiting for him at home, no reason not to risk it all. Out of the blue, the only woman he's ever loved - the same one who ground his heart to dust ten years ago - shows up begging him for help. Dianna's sister is in big trouble somewhere in the rugged Colorado Rockies, and he's t ...more

Recommends it for: Fans of hot romances featuring hot firefighters
This was a very good, passionate, but often sad reunion or 'second chance at romance' story, and I thoroughly enjoyed it. Hot As Sin is the second in the author's Men of Fire series about 'Hotshot'(wildfire) firefighters based near Lake Tahoe, but unlike the first book (Wild Heat), I thought this one focused on the relationship between the H/h more so than the firefighter plot, which worked for me. There was a mildly suspenseful plot to go along with the romance, but to me, the romance was front ...more
4 stars – Romantic Suspense

I’m a sucker for romance stories featuring hot firefighter heroes, and after being somewhat disappointed with Wild Heat, the first book in Andre’s Hot Shots: Men of Fire series, I was hoping for a bit more from this second installment. But unfortunately, Hot as Sin doesn’t quite live up to its full potential either.

On the surface it’s got everything going for it to be a five star read: an extremely sexy cover, a ‘hot-as-sin’ wildland firefighter hero, a strong, deter

I think Bella Andre is one of those authors whose books I can read and don't really mind, but that don't really hook me. There just seems to be something about the way she writes, the way she tells a story that doesn't entirely appeal to me. Because I didn't mind this book. It was above average, I'd say, but there was something missing from it. Something that didn't pull me in.

Sam MacKenzie and Dianna Kelley had a hot and heavy affair when they were both barely more than kids. When happi
3.5 star for me.

It takes a while for Sam and Dianna to forgive each other, but pretty hot once they do. The reason they split in the first place was pretty sad and I even teared up at one point. However, one must really suspend a bit of reality where Sam is concern and how he manages to survive some the "feats of strength" he faces. But like I've said before, who doesn't love a sexy fireman! Dianna is a bit annoying at times, not enough for me not to like her a little though. Over all pretty enj
Thoroughly enjoyed this second installment in the Hotshots series! It takes place outside of Vail, Colorado and the bulk of the story is in the Rocky Mountains, 2010. It's a rekindled young love tale with a super sexy firefighter that was introduced in Wild Heat.

Sam MacKenzie and Dianna Kelley met when they were 18 and 20 years old, and after a very hot "courtship" they were in love and getting married. Things happened that neither handled well--they were young--and they broke apart. But, each

Caliente Como El Pecado es el segundo libro de la serie Bomberos Ardientes, de la autora Bella Andre.
Cuando lei el primer libro, el personaje de Sam me llamo mucho la atencion, esperaba que la autora escribiera su historia, imaginense mi alegria cuando mirando en Goodreads descubri que el siguiente libro era sobre el.
Aunque si es cierto que al leer la sinopsis, la historia no me llamo demasiado la atencion, aun asi quise leerlo porque tenia mucha curiosidad sobre el pasado de Sam y ademas, el li
A plethora of issues and dysfunction worthy of a Jerry Springer episode wasn't to my liking but when the heroine's sister calls saying she just escaped from some guy who kidnapped her and the call gets cut off the heroine doesn't immediately call the police. In fact after a long drawn out conversation with the hero about the phone call and she finally decides it's time to involve the police the hero tells he not to bother.

Hot as Sin (Hot Shots Men of Fire #2) by Bella Andre

Overall rating: 4.5 Rockin’

Sam’s brother tells him that his former fiance Dianna has been in a head on accident. After ten years Sam is still grieving the loss of their child and Dianna leaving him. But he cannot stop himself from going to her to help if she needs him.

“When she dumped your ass and moved to San Francisco you fell apart. I never thought I’d see the day you’d skip out on you job. The job you used to love. But there you were, glued to the bar stool when you should have been out

I'll have to admit I was disappointed in this sequel. It was nowhere near as good as the first book in the series.

The author, Bella Andre, did not show much skill in giving us insights into the motives for the secondary characters actions, and she did an all right but not great job drawing the protagonists.

There is an element of the willing suspension of disbelief anytime one enters a fictional world. The plot of this book goes over that line into unbelievable. There is an evil villian, we are o
Only total desperation could reunite Dianna Kelley with Sam MacKenzie, the irresistible bad boy she walked out on ten years ago. But the fearless firefighter with the awesome wilderness skills is the only one who can take her where she needs to go. It's a gamble--tracking down her endangered sister while keeping Sam and their undeniable attraction at arm's length. Not easy when they're trekking into a remote corner of the Rockies, where she's got to trust her former lover with her life.

I liked this book. I didn't love it, but what can ya do. Anyway this is about Sam a Hotshot firefighter and Dianna . I enjoyed the flashbacks in book. Brought more depth to the book. I am not quite sure what it was that didn't make me love it. Maybe just the action for me felt a little flat. I did love the way that Sam and Dianna were together. Their love was put to the test 10 years ago and things went bad. There was a lot of misunderstanding and assumptions about each other. When they finally ...more
When I saw this book, I was immediately drawn in by the interesting title and the visually appealing cover. When I read that the book was about a firefighter, I just had to buy it, and I do not regret that decision one bit. I have not read the first book in this series, but I have to say, that out of all the books I've read with a firefighter hero/heroine, this is one of my favorites.

From the beginning of the book, I was Sam MacKenzie's shoulder to cry on. I was thoroughly irritated with Dianna
Awilk -never sleeps-
Hot as Sin was another enjoyable read in he series. This time around, the story was based a lot more on the romance between the two main characters, Dianna and Sam.
We met Sam in the previous book, Wild Heat, but this time we learnt the very sad back story of Dianna and him. It was very touching and tragic, and I must admit that I had tears in my eyes for some of it. It was made very clear from the beginning that these two were still in love with each other, and the sexual tension between them wa
I am a HUGE fan of military guys, fireman, policeman and if there's a book that is going to cover any of those subjects I'm all IN....reading about the characters of the HOTSHOT crew in Bella Andre's books...hits the spot...

whats HOTTER then a fireman who jumps out of planes and helicopters to rescue other people? Love the character, Sam MacKenzie and the fact that he never gave up on Dianna Kelley....

reading the action scenes of white water rafting had me sweating big time...seeme
Ah, what a nice second chance story! Sam and Dianna had been involved 10 years before, but youth led to misunderstandings and Dianna left. Both had unresolved issues, but neither stopped caring. When Dianna was hurt, Sam had to go to her. Forced to be together they worked out their past and fell in love again. (Not that they ever stopped loving each other.) Add in some suspense to keep things interesting and it was quite a good book! I wanted more at the end - they had lots of details to work ou ...more

Too many WTFs for me

Icy roads cause a two-car accident in Vail, Colorado, involving famous newscaster Dianna Kelley and a drug dealer. When the drug dealer dies, his brother blames Dianna and kidnaps her estranged sister, April, who has come to the hospital to see her sister. When Dianna’s former fiancé and forest fire fighter Sam MacKenzie hears about the accident on the news he rushes to her side. Their breakup ten years ago came after a previous car accident in which Dianna miscarried his chi
I don't know why, but this book didn't do it for me. The plot didn't keep me interested and even when I just finished the book I'm having a hard time remembering the names of the characters.

After reading the Firefighters from station 5 series, I've been looking for more stories about firefighters, but sadly I haven't found a compelling enough book so far.

This wasn't particulary good but it wasn't bad either.

Marcy Meyer
Hot as Sin, for sure. This is a great series by Bella Andre to check out, especially if you love hot fire fighters, steamy romance and just the right amount of suspense. Sam and Dianna have a heartbreaking history which adds to the angst of their reunion. I loved their chemistry and really rooted for them to open up to each other. Just enough suspense to keep me on the edge of my seat. I have really enjoyed this series so far and hope for more.
This book gets 3.5 stars it was really good lots of back story. It was good I just keep comparing it to the first in the series it was better in some ways. It is a slower book the book one. Love that to me their seemed to be more story line and less sex sense. Dont get me wrong their there and they are good. I just enjoyed the interaction between the two leads.
Christina Montminy
This book had me sitting on the edge of my seat. Sam & Dianna's story is sad but encouraging when they meet up again after a second car accident for her. I can't explain any further without giving away the details, all I have to say is this is a great read. Can't wait to read Connor's book next.
Patricia Baxter
I have yet to read a Bella Andre book I didn't like.

True to form, this story is an engaging romance. Maya is an arson investigator and finds that her prime suspect in a recent string of arsons is Logan, a man with whom she had a one-night-stand six months before. Before the case is solved, these two encounter some danger together as well create their own heat.

But in addition to the romance is the ability to see inside the world of the elite among firefighters - the hotshots. These brave souls f
Just simple nice romance with some suspense and a little bit of heat. Easy peasy!
Again, this series isn't my favorite which how can that be I don't know because firefighters, sexy hot men and woman, old flame and love, this was sweet and I actually would probably give it three and a half stars because I love love that goes around and finds each other again!! Sweet, so sweet, so you will enjoy this, it's a happily ever after kind of book which I enjoy but I just wanted a little bit more.....not sure what I'm looking for but anyway, three stars pick her up because she is a mus ...more
The second in a series about Hotshot firefighters from Lake Tahoe. Sam MacKenzie was introduced briefly in the previous book, Wild Heat. He's been a hotshot for over 10 years and kept his heart locked up tight since his fiancee left him 10 years ago when he was just a young 20-year-old hotshot and she was recovering from a car accident.
When Dianna Kelley is in another car accident, she is transported back to when Sam was going to be her husband. When she wakes up to find him in her hospital roo
Although this one didn't really have that much sex in it, the romantic tension between Sam (who is a super hot hotshot) and Dianna is pretty tense. The whole time I kind of felt broken hearted for both of their troubled lives and was sure glad they got a HEA.

Some good moments:

All these years he'd been so busy blaming her for leaving. But now he saw that he'd taken the easy way out. He hadn't wanted to take a frank look in the mirror an ask himself what he'd dong wrong of how he'd fucked things u
Hot as Sin, the second installment in the Hot Shots Series, is a story of second chances and never-ending first love. Unlike book one with fire ranging all around the characters, this book highlights the skills and rugged strength both of heart and body of the fire fighter hero as he fights to help the ones he loves.

Sam Mackenzie has been fighting fires for years now and he has learned to never back down from a fight and allow the fire to win. But on his days off he struggles to keep his mind of

I've never made this complaint about a romantic suspense novel before but the story was completely implausible to the point it was hard to read this. Dianna has a car accident that's no one's fault; Dianna is raised by an alcoholic mother (who is still alive) who put Dianna's four-year old sister into foster care and Dianna worked ten years to get custody of the sister; Dianna's fiancee (Sam) from ten years ago drops everything to fly to Dianna's hospital bedside after the car accident; the meth ...more

Review reposted from my Smitten with Reading blog...

My Review:
Overall, this was a pretty good book. Sam & Dianna have an undeniable connection. The tension between them is palpable- both for the misunderstandings and assumptions from 10 years ago when they were both too young and too stupid, but also for the sexual tensions that are still there now.

This is a suspense novel. The core of the romantic side of the novel is the love between Sam & Dianna that has never left even though it's be
