Let me start by saying that I sure love me some firemen. I mean come on, doesn't everyone? Here, let me help...


With that said, I tried to make sure that my firemen obsession didn't influence my rating. As hard as it was, I still give this book 5 stars without the image of a fireman floating around my head ;).

Luckily, for me, I was able to read this book in less than a day. Trust me, it wasn't hard to do. Burst Into Flame offered many of the factors that allow me to thoroughly enjoy a book. Fir

4.5 stars. This was a great sequel to Love is a Fire. Katy is moving on with life as a widowed mother and she has the support of the Garrity family along with her deceased husband's best friend Jesse. Dare I say that I love Jesse more than Nick? Well, I just admitted to it, so there. Nick was fantastic and he and Katy had this whirlwind romance swept up in so many high and low moments within a short period of time. No doubt they were meant for each other. Jesse was more of a slow burn developmen ...more

This is book 2 in the Burning Lovesick series
Yes, book one should be read before you read this book.
But if you wanted to I am sure that it could be read
as a stand alone.

This is the continuing story of Katy.

This is Katy's life after she has lost her husband.
No spoilers this is stated in the blurb.
Katy again has lost someone that she loves.
She has to learn to stay strong and be there for others
as well as learn to live on her own once again.

Burst Into Flame is the follow up to Love is a Fire by author Lyssa Layne. I really liked Love is a Fire, but I was really blown away with Burst Into Flame.

The story starts with Katy trying to pick up the pieces of her former life after the passing of her late husband, Nick, and the birth of their new son, Nicky. I think I could relate to this part of the story because having just had a baby this year, I know how hard it is to do things even with my husband around, much less if something happen

I was lucky and got my hands on this one as a beta reader :-) After reading Love is a Fire I couldn't wait to find out what Lyssa Layne had in store for Dr. Katy Malone.

Katy's life hasn't ever been easy, but she's tough and knows how to persevere no matter what. That doesn't mean that she isn't vulnerable and in need of a solid shoulder to lean on from time to time.

Enter Jesse O'Neil, my favorite firefighter and the man Katy has learned to rely on throughout the heartache of losing her husband

Reading Love Is A Fire and then Burst Into Flames, was such a bad, but great idea. Don't get me wrong I love how Nick and Katy where with each other. But Jesse captured my heart when he stepped up to take care of Katy and Nicky. He didn't have to, but he also fell in love with Katy. I didn't like Rich, and it wasn't the fact that Jesse is the one that is suppose to be with her, he just came off to me as stalkerish type of guy. I mean really, if you want to know something about som

Dr Katy Garrity lost the love of her life and is now raising their son alone.

Jesse O'Neil is her husbands best friend and has been staying with them since the accident.

Jesse has professed his love for Katy but she doesn't want that as she can't get past Nick's death yet. Jesse has tried to be their for her when she needs it but they find it hard to avaid the sexual tension between them.

When events happen that take them on a course away from what they want, will they survive long enought to help

Wow!! I absolutely loved Into the Fire and loved this one just as much!

At the end of Into The Fire Dr.Katy Garrity must move on with life after her husband Nick, a fireman, is killed on the job and she must raise their son alone. Her son, Nicky, born on the day his father died, is a constant reminder of Nick and she remains dedicated to keeping Nick's memory alive.

Jesse O'Neil was Nick's best friend and has moved in with Katy and Nicky to help them out but there is an unwritten law among firemen

I was super excited when I got my hands on a copy of Burst Into Flame, the 2nd story in the Burning Lovesick series.

I fell in love with the story of Katy & Nick in the first book and wanted to see how the author was going to continue Katy's story as a widow of a firefighter. Having Nick's best friend Jesse take on the male role in her family's life allowed both her and her son to continue on.

Situations arise in Jesse's life that test the friendship of Katy & Jesse to the extent of possibly ruini

I could not wait to get my hands on this book. This can be read as a stand alone but I recommend reading Love is A Fire by Lyssa first. This book includes hot firemen and what some might call forbidden love. Jesse O'Neil is a fireman and has been helping Dr. Katy take care of Nicky her son. Jesse didn't mean to fall in love but he did. Katy has been struggling with all of the emotions from the past year and is glad Jesse is there to help her. Jesse is trying figure out life before Katy moves on ...more

Lyssa has done it again, Burst into Flame the sequel to Love is a Fire is just as amazing. She rips your heart out, makes you go no, yes, no and then puts it all back together again and makes you sigh in relief.
I loved Jesse in the first but I totally fell in love with him in this book, Katy became stronger in this one but still maintained the love that you felt for her in the first. All the other characters were well written (I even started to like Jeremiah and I really did not like him in the

I loved this book better than the first one!!

Who doesn't love Firefighters, I Know I do. You really need to meet Jesse ladies. I fell in love with him straight away.

Burst Into Flame is about finding a second chance at love.

After Kate's husband passed away, Jesse steps up and takes care of his best friends wife and son. He also got his own problems to deal with but doesn't want Kate to deal with more than she has too.

I loved that Kate got a second chance to love and be loved, she deserves to be h

This is a great follow up to Lyssa Laynes's first book. This book has a great balance of love and emotion. While the love story is very sweet the author adds steamy moments. The love scenes are not crude are are tastefully done. Great job on a follow book! I can not wait for the next books to hit the shelves! ...more

Heart bursting with emotion

This book is full of emotion, drama, sweetness, funny and hot moments. Love is a Fire was great but Burst into Flame is superb and unique in so many ways. Super difficult to put down, loved every minute spent reading it. After we were introduced to Katy's gain and loss in the first book, this book shows us the aftermath of her loss, how she's dealing with it and the big role Jesse, Nick's best friend, has to take. Great characters, plot and emotional turmoil that envel
