It can definitely be read as a standalone. However, it would be easier to get into if the entire series is read.

This review is based on the ARC provided by the author and/or the publisher via NetGalley in exchange for my honest opinion.

There are times Dex has to rephrase things because the man gets it wrong the first time, “no, that’s not what I meant. I’m not saying I want you to go. I’m saying you should come wait inside while I take a shower. And then I’ll get you a beer. Okay?” I liked this book, Dex was a real great guy, and Cady had a big heart

Flame is the 5th book in a Tule Publishing series about the highly-trained, highly-skilled and courageous firefighters of mountainous Montana. I haven’t read any of the other volumes, I only grabbed this one because otherwise it would be the only one of Purman’s books I hadn’t reviewed.

This is a beautiful story of high school crushes carrying their feelings around for years in a case of extreme bad timing until finally finding the right time.

Being a novella this is quite a short read which means

It had been ten years since Cady Adams had drunkenly thrown herself at her high school crush, Dex McCoy. Not wanting to start college as a virgin, Cady had wanted Dex to be her first; he had instead rejected her, unwilling to take advantage of an intoxicated woman. Ten years later, Cady and Dex meet again when Dex walks into Cady’s cake shop to pick up an order for his fire-fighting team at Glacier Creek’s forestry service. Cady is still furious that Dex had rejected her all those years ago, but ...more blog~
4.5 Stars!! to "Flame" Firefighters Of Montana Book Five by Victoria Purman........

"Flame" is the last book in the Firefighters of Montana series. I'm sorry to see it end because I have enjoyed this series, as well as the sexy Hot Shot smokejumpers!

This is Cady and Dex's story. Back during high school Cady had a serious crush on Dex but when she made her feelings known, due to a misunderstanding, she was rejected and embarrassed. Shortly after, Cady left town to pursue her dreams of being a bake

I hate to see this series end. I have really enjoyed the smokejumper stories. Cady had a crush on Dex back in high school. They both left Montana to follow their dreams. Years later circumstances find them back in Montana. Cady owns a bakery, Cady Cakes and Dex is a smoke jumper. They both knew the other was in town but they were keeping their distance. Cady threw herself at him once, long ago on the eve of her leaving town. She felt rejected and now the thought of seeing him makes her want to r ...more

Another steamy hot Firefighters of Montana story.

When Cady Adams returns to Glacier Creek, she has no idea her high school crush Dex McCoy has returned as well. In the past, their timing was never right. They both had plans of leaving Montana as soon as they could.

After school, Cady moved to California to go to culinary school. She is home again and has established her own bakery, Cady's Cakes.

Book 5 in the Firefighters of Montana series, Flame is another great weekend read, and like the other four in this series it stands alone well.
I was particularly amazed at the amount of research Australian author Victoria Purman must have done in order to so accurately describe the lives and experience of smokejumpers dealing with wild fires. We have bushfires here too, but nothing like these infernos that seem to hit north America so regularly.
This book is not, however, a treatise on the life

Cady and Dex have known each other since HS and their timing has always been off. One drunken kiss and a misunderstanding have kept them apart but finally they are in the same place and maybe they can see if there can be something between them. this was a story of hope and new beginnings. Cady may have been afraid to love and wanted to protect her heart but she knew if she wanted to be with him she would have to take the risk. The risk can be worth it and I'm glad she realized it.

Cady can’t understand why Dex seems to be avoiding her sweets shop, Cady’s Cakes. She can’t imagine it has something to do with the kiss they shared years prior, can it? When Dex and Cady finally start talking, she realizes just how wrong she was. Could this be her second chance to be with the guy she has loved since hi ...more

Dex has always been a drifter, trying out different jobs, figuring out who he is. Cady has always known what she wants from her life. To own her own bakery and Dex McCoy. But her shy nature has always prevented her from telling Dex about how she feels. One drink too many, a bad attempt at seduction and rejection from Dex in the past, has made her wary. As for Dex he's never thought he was good enough for Cady, even though she's the only girl he's ever dreamed about.

Even though Dex is back home,

This is the final story in this series centered around a group of smokejumpers in Montana and what a great way to wrap things up! There's always been a sizzling attraction between Dex McCoy and Cady Adams. What has never been right is timing. Years ago he had big plans of leaving Montana for good and he did. Spending the time drifting from place to place. Cady had her own plans, heading to California and culinary school expecting to make it big! Now they find themselves back in Montana with the ...more

Dex and Cady shared a kiss 4 years ago before Cady left town for culinary school. Now that they are both back in Montana, memories from that night have Dex avoiding Cady, but not for the reasons that she may think. They definitely have different recollections about that brief encounter.

I enjoyed reading about the backstory of Dex and Cady and their journeys that led them back to Montana. I really loved the Firefighters of Montana series. I wish there were more books to follow.

This was a great conclusion to the Firefighters series.
Dex and Cady had known each other since high school, but their timing was always off. I loved the chemistry between the two of them. And the way Dex is with his niece just made my heart melt. They were both very likable characters and I really liked that there wasn't a lot of unnecessary drama between them. There were bumps in the road, but nothing over the top.

Dex McCoy and Cady Adams had been dancing around each other for years. When they both finally end up in the same place the sparks start to fly between them. Although it's nothing a smoke jumper like Dex can't handle. I loved the love story and the family background story. Read how Cady and Dex get their happily ever after in Flame.

Book 5 of Firefighters if Montana. Love this series of books. Love Dex and Cady. Sorry the story has ended as they really stole my heart. These two were destined to be together but I worried thru the book whether or not they would make it. Great book, great series wish there were more! Must read!

I am a little sad that this series of hot, sexy smokejumpers has come to an end. I enjoyed this book and the story of Cady and Dex. Young love that was plagued multiple times by bad timing, finally finds a spark to rekindle the flame between these two. A great addition to the other 4 books in the series.

It seems that I started with the last book, #5, in the Firefighters of Montana series to read first. So without a doubt I can say that Flame by Victoria Purman reads very well on its own. The other couples especially the female part of the couples are mentioned in this book but it only serves to make you want to read their stories. I liked this couple of Dex and Cady who are Montana born and breed. Theirs is a sweet story with a wonderful side second story of Dex’s niece’s recovery after a fall. ...more

Now, they are both there and they are still attracted to each other. Cady is worried about Dex's job.

This is the last book in series about a group of Montana Smoke Jumpers. Dex is a rookie smokejumper who was with another team to gain some experience. He returns to Glacier Creek to find Cady back in town. She has opened a successful bakery that Dex has avoided. He has no idea how to approach the girl who has always interested him. Can their attraction grow into something they were never able to have in the past? A great ending to a fun hot series. I definitely recommend this and all of the Mont ...more

Dex and Cady have known each other since high school and have had secret crushes on each other for forever. Cady is a loving, caring young woman back in her home town after losing her mother and grandmother. Dex, a former wanderlust, is back,too, and is finally establishing roots as a smoke jumper. Their last time together is a memorable one for Dex but a cringe worthy one for Cady. How they finally come together makes for a wonderful story.
