Recommends it for: Fireman Groupies!
*Sigh* this series is awesome! They are all light, fun, reads with the best heroes. We all know firemen don’t really look like the guys at Station 5, but hey, this is fantasy-land, right?

Tommy is the youngest at the station at 23, and he’s been struggling lately with the path he has chosen. A few years ago, his older brother was captured, tortured and murdered in the middle-east. He had a promising football career and was possibly going pro when it happened. When his brother died, he dropped ev

Recommends it for: Fans of the series; fans of firefighter romance
Sweet. That's the word that keeps popping into my head when I think about this book. Sweet and sexy. The character of firefighter Tommy Skyler (a young Brad Pitt look-alike) was just a sweetheart. He was young (23) but he'd already had a few knocks in his life (a terrible family tragedy that altered the course of his life and ruined his hopes for a career in pro football) and he was plagued with some self doubts about his 'more heroic' career as a firefighter. He met the heroine, 28 year old cut ...more
Opening Line: “Go wide! Go wide! Come on Skyler pass the ball!”

Line Of Fire is book #4 in in the romantic, suspenseful and sexy firefighters of station five series. This time through we get apparent Brad Pitt lookalike Tommy Skylar’s story. At 23 he’s the youngest member of ‘A’ shift, a former star quarterback, Tommy had dreams of going to the NFL until the death of his brother in Iraq changed everything. Striving to make his parents proud Tommy joined the Fire Dept but still isn’t sure it’s whe
UniquelyMoi ~ BlithelyBookish

Line of Fire is the fourth book of the Firefighters of Station Five series and ended up liking much more than I thought I would.

At 23 years old, Tommy Skylar is the youngest member of Station Five, and everyone treats him that way – not like a kid per se, but they’re always watching out for him and in fact, they do call him “kid.” He’s a sweet, easy going Brad Pitt lookalike who gets along with everyone, so he’s come across as kind of wimpy in the other books. But the thing about Tommy is that

Recommends it for: Fans of hot Firemen!!!

Finally, its young boy Tommy’s book, and his older love interest. Then I realized Tommy aint so young and his love interest still got ways to go, to be considered older, way off of being considered old. I liked book four, not the spectacularness that is book three but its still another great instalment. What’s not to love about firefighters, hot bodied men, and burning buildings. Not a damn thing, not a damn bloody thing.

Tommy is the baby of Station 5, only twenty-thre
Nice, easy read. Line of Fire picked up right where Hidden Fire left off, so be sure to read this series in order. If I remember correctly, the main characters, Tommy Skyler and Shea Ford, were splashed on the pages in earlier books and the continuing saga about Sean (the captain) is escalated. I feel like Sean's tragic story is winding down now. Still heartbreaking.

Very light on the suspense and heavy on the sweet romance, Line of Fire was about young love, heartache, life's tragedy's forcing c

Another great addition to this series and it's really more like 4.5 stars. Tommy & Shea were totally believeable together and made a great couple. Tommy is definitely put through the ringer with accidents & injuries(although no where near as much as poor Zach - and let's thank goodness for THAT). The sex scenes were totally sizzling - Tommy has a lot of experience in his short 23 years.

Great update on all of the other characters and we get to see Zach and Cori get married. Sean is still

This was a really good read - one thing that just really got my goat though? The amount of references to Tommy's mum and dad. I mean I get the guy is still only in his early 20's but geez I dont think any hot blooded male talks about momsy and dadsy so much and to a woman he wasnt to do the hanky panky with no less!

Otherwise top notch!

Why I Read this Book: One word: firefighters.

What I Liked: Tommy Skyler is a 23-year old firefighter at Station Five in Sugarland Tennessee. He was on his way to becoming a football hero, until the tragic death of his brother. Tommy feels like he is constantly living in his late brother’s shadow and will never live up to his parents’ expectations like his brother did. Tommy comes to the realization that he became a firefighter for the wrong reason and now wants to pursue his interest in becoming

Poor, poor Tommy... Hasn't he been through enough at a young age. Carrying the burden of his brother's death and his fear that though he gave up everything, he will never be the man that Donny was.

With that said, I feel a personal responsibility to say God Bless the Troops. Though I realize that this is a story, it is a very real fact that everyday a young soldier gives his life and their families suffer the loss for their bravery.

Tommy is the all-American boy that every little girls' mommas te

Bueno a ver creo que intentare ser breve, la verdad este libro me decepciono un poco ya que ame los anteriores y para ser "Bomberos de la Estación Cinco" acá no se ni porque esta ahí porque hubo muy poco de la Estación Cinco y por ende muy poco de los demas chicos, se centraron mas en la relación entre Tommy y Shea y creo que estaba bien que hablaran de ellos pero ya me resultaba muy tedioso, aburrido y ya leía rápido las partes hots porque como dije me aburría y se paso del drama!!!!

OMG. This was a really good one. Sorry for the disjointed thoughts that follow. I want to do this without spoilers, and I'm sitting at work, too, hiding my monitor *g*.

Just a couple things kept it from being a 5-star read for me, and they are likely my own issues. First, Tommy is 23. How the hell is he so practiced a lover? A serious hottie in the bedroom. K, I'm sure it's my own experiences here, since he was a star college football player and then a firefighter. But still...

Everyone thought he had the golden life: looks and career but they don't understand the weight of emotions he carries in his past. Tommy Skyler has been loving nurse Shea Ford so he doesn't easily give up despite her brush offs. So after an injury that lands him in the hospital, Tommy takes the chance to re-new their relationship. Shea is weary but sees the lengths Tommy goes for her and concedes. In the background, someone is planning the removal of a character by sabotoging the rescue attempts ...more
It had a few good moments, but not that many. Line of Fire was like an X-rated blending of Leave It To Beaver and CHiPs. (If you're too young to know, CHiPs was a late 1970's TV show featuring two motorcycle cops from the California Highway Patrol.) Hunky guys and beautiful women spouting poorly-scripted lines, while occasionally having emotional heart-to-hearts with themselves or others. I thought I might be blinded by the virtual gleam coming off the shiny teeth. And the "we've been through he ...more
Hmmm, yet again, this series just doesn't seem to click very well with me. Sure, it's hot (at times), sure it's sweet (at times), sure it's suspenseful (again, at times), there's just something there, which I cannot put my finger on, that doesn't work that well for me.

The pacing was good, the characters were nice, the plot was rather tight, I just didn't feel it. I also didn't "feel" the connection between the two leads, I didn't really understand Tommy's decision toward the end, and Shea's init

I loved this story a lot more than I thought I would. I read it just because it was jo davis and it was part of the firefighter series. I was hesitant because of Tommy's age, 23 I think, or 24. But right away I fell in love. Tommy is sweet, he's caring and he has had a lot on his plate. It's brought in the book about his age, people telling him he's too young, and then tommy getting tired of people treating him like hes a child. I think that helped a lot with getting over how old her is.

I'm sad to say this one was not my favorite in the series.... Sad because I was looking forward to Tommy and Shea's story. The suspense part of the plot was decent I guess, the bad guy was just too obvious imo. I like to be kept on the edge of my seat not able to figure out the who dunnit parts til closer to the end but that wasn't the case here. The romance was good, but some of the dialogue between Tommy and Shea was too cheesy/corny for me. The sex was hot but that's about it. I found myself ...more

Tommy Skyler & Shea Ford
OK, Jo Davis still loves to beat the hero, but this time I might say it wasnt that bad. Still bad enought, since Tommy has to change his career.
The relationship between Tommy and Shea startet a bit slow. There is nothing realy special at their love story, this time the story is more about Tommy and how he finds his way again after the accident. Thats not bad at all since JD develops or carries on with some (new) character. (still enough hot scenes, dont worry!!)

Okay Im one of those people that has to read books in order and because throughout this series Jo Davis drip feeds you Sean and Eve's story by the time you finish the awesome story if Tommy and Shea you're practically running straight into the next story!

Tom and Shea's story is a sweet and sad story of missed opportunities in Tom'a life anyway but it's a journey of making life decisions that you're happy with. Thoroughly enjoyed it

Tommy seemed younger than he was supposed to be - in many instances he acted more like a teenager than in his mid-twenties. Shea, who is a couple of years older than him, also acted much younger than she was and younger than her twin brother! When Tommy is hurt, he's depressed for about two weeks and then his firehouse buddies come over, talk to him for about 5 minutes, and he's all good. So it seemed more like he was just sulking, than truly depressed and angry. Shea blew hot and cold, and her ...more

It was so so good ,it had a great plot and hot sizzling sex scenes that will make you melt , it was awesome to finally get to read about Tommy.

Tommy is so so hot and super funny and i just could not put down his book ,i enjoyed every moment of it ,Tommy is such a sweetheart and i thought it was great how his relationship with Shea unfolded ,that make such an awesome couple .

Shea is pretty cool but i didn't like how she treated Tommy at first ,i mean he' s a great guy and she was kinda mean to hi

3 1/2 stars.
Well, the book wasn't bad at all, but i was somehow dissapointed with Tommy. Not much to say, the romance and plot were ok, but this is definetly my least favorite book of the series, in fact, the brightest point of it was the teaser chapter of Ride the Fire (Sean's book) and i can't wait to read it.
I'm quite enjoyed this little story. Maybe not as much as the others although the plot got pretty good toward the end. I guess I'm just holding out for Sean and Eve's story. This one was kind of nice but it had a rushed feeling to it which the previous stories didn't have. Enjoyable though.

Tommy Skyler, "the kid", really grows & changes in this novel--another delightful addition to the Station Five series.

Sexy characters, hot sex scenes, all tucked into fast-paced thriller stories! She writes excellent plots, excellent dialogue--top-notch writing!
