Live Wire is the first book in Caisey Quinn’s a Nashville’s Finest series, and with a blurb that promised a homicidal maniac threatening to set off military-grade IEDs during Nashville’s largest music festival,  and a rekindling romance between an explosives expert and his former lover, now an FBI agent, you’d think I was in for an action-packed, emotional rollercoaster of a ride, right?

Wrong.

Because Live Wire is, in fact, a damp squib.  There is

Kitty's review:

Unbelievable. I absolutely loved Live Wire. It was exciting, fast paced and a true romance. Chase and Vivian had me from the beginning and didn’t let me go.

Nashville … my dream vacation spot. And, CMA Music Festival. Yes! But, blow it up? Hell, no! Chase Fisk was my hero just for that. But, my personal feelings about Nashville aside, Chase was a hero living in a shell of a life. Yes, he went on after losing his one true love and he lived with that reality every day. How was he sup

Finally! After reading the Prequel to this series, I was DYING to find out what the heck was going to happen to these two.

Chase has been haunted for four years. He's been having reoccurring nightmares about the day he watched Viv blow up when he was her CO. Although he's tried to get over her, drunken nights and one night stands just couldn't cut through the love he had for Viv. And suddenly.....BAM! What's that? Is his mind playing tricks on him? Nope. Viv is back from the de

This fell a little short for me. The romance went from 0% to 100% too fast. And the suspense wasn't my favorite. I was hoping for a more cracky read.

Live Wire picks up four years after the devastating ending in Lit Fuse. Live Wire starts with powerful tension and doesn't let up at any point, utterly gripping.

Viv is now working for the FBI after spending a number of years undercover to bring down the threat to herself and the people she cares for. All the time she has had to sacrifice her happiness for safety she held onto hope that she could return to Chase. The reasons for the lack of reunion are initially withheld and create a different k

Chase and Vivien were together years ago, and then she was killed and he has never gotten over her death...yet, she isn't dead.

I loved the second chance romance, complicated by the jobs they each had to do and the past that was coming back to haunt them. I thought Ms. Quinn handled the balance of this well. Yes, there was a past between them, but there was also a bomber to catch, so there was the need to do their best to put the past aside, to foc

After the stunning conclusion in the prequel, Lit Fuse, there was just no keeping me away from Live Wire. I had to see what came of this pair when he thought she died in an explosion and she stayed away long after the need to stay in hiding was over. Whew! This was indeed a live one like the title calls it. This new exciting series focusing on members of the Nashville PD and their intense cases and lives makes me pretty happy about the new romantic suspense on the block.

The threat of an imminent explosion at an immensely popular music festival brings Chase Fisk and Vivien Montgomery back together again and with it, the roiling emotions that had both tied up in knots for years when things ended on an unexpectedly tragic note.

‘Live Wire’ is much shorter than I’d expected and as a continuation of ‘Lit Fuse’ that detailed both Chase’s and Viv’s history four years earlier, wastes no time at all in reuniting estranged protagonists and pulling them together—in a rath

Mistakes, simple, impulsive, random mistakes- one infinitesimal misstep could destroy every-fucking-thing in the blink of an eye. But what if everything wasn’t what it seemed and you get a second chance?

Chase Fisk is one of Nashville’s Finest. He is a fine specimen although he is alive and if things had gone differently then he might not have been. He works and that is all he has done for the past four years. After the death of the love of his life Vivien Brooks.

Consider this your first and final warning.  Next time she won't return from the dead.


After I read the synopsis, I decided to read this book.  A crime novel?  Cops?  And Feds?  Sounds exciting!

As you might already know, I'm a huge fan of crime shows!  Yes.  I watch/watched a lot of crime shows like Castle, CSI, Criminal Minds, The Mentalist, Psych, Grimm...

I am a huge Caisey Quinn fan. I think I've read all her books, usually as soon as they come out. She is one of the authors I'm down for with new releases. Gotta get my grabby little hands on her books. I did the same with this one. I had to read it asap and I'm glad I did. I am such a sucker for a second chance romance .

I felt like I was reading a CSI book, or SVU or something. It is crime drama and romance tied together. Talk about surprise le

Loved reading the conclusion to Chase and Vivien's story. Though it seems like I've read something very similar before...I'm still trying to place it. But all together, it was a good story and I looked forward to more from this series. Review to come....

I’m not even gonna lie, I started off wanting to throw this book (or more specifically my iPad with the book on it) across the room. My jaw hit the floor when I read Vivien was dead. I was furious. I quickly closed it out, went to Goodreads and read the blurb and realized that I wasn’t going to have to give the book up after all. Vivien was alive and well, even if Chase didn’t know it yet. But boy, did that first chapter get my heart beating. (Th

Hmmm...

Usually I love and adore any story from this author, so I'm a bit confused as to why I'm not grinning stupidly with happiness now.

Live Wire is a good story. It's fluent, fast paced, sweet and entertaining. The characters are still good, and I enjoyed the way they handled themselves and each other.

I guess I would have just liked to know a bit more about the precinct in general, about the dynamics between the cops in general. Now the story felt like it had been written out of order and w

Chase has been living with the pain of the past. The past love he had and lost. It's been four years and he believes that Vivian died and left him broken hearted. Then the city he has sworn to protect, Nashville, is under attack by a terrorist bomber and in walks a ghost from his past...his beautiful Viv...the FBI agent...wtf?? That is basically his reaction.
How does Viv show Chase what happened and how it happened while they are both working under the threat of the city being blown to smithere

This story starts off with loss... Chase has gone through a tragedy he can't shake and suffers from nightmares and tremors from the death of his love Vivien.

Wow! I had no idea when I read the synopsis how good this book was going to be! It started from the very first pages! Chase is an EOD specialist for the Nashville PD. He has to find a twisted perp who is threatening to blow up the city he loves, and if anyone can find him, it’s Chase. He has no idea how this case will change his whole life. What will he do when the only woman he has loved and thought was dead shows back up to work the case with him? Yeah, an explosion of another kind!

Caisey Quinn delivers an explosive, action-packed second chance romance with Live Wire, the first novel in her Nashville’s Finest series. After meeting Chase and Vivien in the prequel novella Lit Fuse, I was addicted. I knew I needed more of this badass couple and Caisey Quinn definitely didn’t disappoint. Sizzling, heart pounding, and full of feels, Live Wire was everything I’d hoped it would be and so much more. From their intensely emotional reunion to the delightfully satisfying conclusion, ...more

Wow this book!! So, I read the blurb and thought I knew what I was getting into. I had no idea how intensely I'd be drawn in and invested in this book! This is one that has everything I love and then some! Hot military man/cop? Check! Great romance for the ages? Check! Suspense and twists? Check!

I don't think there was anything about this story I didn't love! It is my first read by Caisey Quinn but it most definitely will not be my last! Can't wait for the next book!!
