This was a little more angsty than I usually care to read, but it was a good story.

This was a nice, sweet read. Izzy had pushed a lot of people away after her brother's death. She's been hired to shoot a calendar with the firemen, which puts her in the path of an old flame. She's afraid to let him in because she blames him for her brother's death, even though it was pretty much freak accident. A lot of things start to fall into place in her job, like getting two amazing offers. Trent just wants

This is a good story. Everyone grieves differently. Izzy just really didn't know how to deal with the death of her brother. Trent never gives up on Izzy. I think Izzy could have been less of a bitch to him it would have made the story better. ...more

Saved by the Firefighter is the first book I've read by Rachel. I really enjoyed her writing style. The characters were well developed and I felt like I could connect with them. Rachel has a talent in making her readers feel the emotions of the characters that she creates. Saved by the Firefighter was full of emotions, from the very first page I had a feeling that I was going to need a box of tissues.

Overall Saved by the Firefighter was an enjoyable read. I loved the concept of the story. I thin

Izzy Cooper gave every part of herself to firefighter Trent Palmer, even if it went against every part of her being! But Izzy took that chance and for even though she didn't know Trent’s feelings for her, she lived in happiness!

But then a explosion at a garage killed her brother Robbie, and Izzy cut herself off from everyone, including Trent! As she couldn't get past her anger at Trent, from not being able to save her brother.

Trent Palmer took fighting fires very seriously; he did it in honor of

Hold On To What You Have

Izzy lost her brother in an explosion at the garage where he worked. She knew the reports said he died instantly from a beam and not the fire, she had to put blame somewhere. So she blamed his best friend Trent for not getting there in time to save Robbie. Trent is a firefighter and he and Izzy had just started seeing each other before Robbie's death. Ever since then she's closed herself off to the world, blocking every attempt Trent has tried to not only help her, but b

Izzy is lonely. She's on her own with her grief and nothing will bring back the brother she loved so much. When Robbie passed away Izzy was dating Trent, one of Robbie's colleagues. Robbie was a firefighter who died because of his job. Izzy broke off her relationship with Trent, because she couldn't handle losing someone again. Trent is persistent, but Izzy keeps telling him no.

Izzy is a photographer and to help a little girl she's one of the people who are putting together a calendar. Trent is

A story about finding your way through grief and loss and having to pick up the pieces of your life afterwards. I liked Trent a lot, but found it fairly difficult to connect with Izzy. I understood her pain, but I just would have liked to see more depth to her instead of just pushing away the one person that cared about her the most … repeatedly. Either way, I enjoyed their story.

Izzy Cooper is struggling to cope with the death of her brother. She's alienated her best friend, Kate, and would rather surround herself in work than deal with her grief. Except her brother's friend, Trent Palmer, just won't give up on helping her, no matter how hard she tries to push him away. However, for Izzy, keeping her distance isn't easy, especially when they're forced together, so she can shoot some photos of him for a firefighter calendar.

Talented Photographer, Izzy Cooper, has always been upbeat in her approach to life, until the day her brother died. Now she has pushed everyone away, including the fireman that she always had a thing for, and hides out by herself. Even her photography has changed. But she has to deal with her friends, and Trent, when she's taking the pictures for a calendar shoot to help a child in need of treatment.

The characters in this story are well developed and I loved seeing how much they grew and eventually began to heal. I did get a little annoyed at times with Izzy but grief is a terrible thing and I can understand her reluctance to be hurt again. This book definitely made me emotional, there were tears in my eyes at times. I guess it means that I connected with the characters and story.

I found that the plot moved at a decent pace although at times the pace did slightly slow. However the story kep

4 stars.

I really enjoyed this book. It was a sweet romance, but it was more than that. It was trying to find you way back to the world after something that could destroy you. The way that you see what Izzy goes through this book. The anger, the loss, the way she found her way back at the end was all you can always ask for. Sometimes you wonder how you can love life again when you think everything was taken from you. You think how can you love someon

Everyone handles grief differently and when you lose someone close to you, your life is forever changed in ways you can never fathom beforehand. Izzy Cooper loses the person that means that most to her in the world, her brother who was a firefighter, in the line of duty. At the time she had been dating one of his best friends and a fellow firefighter, Trent Palmer. Swearing to never feel that depth of pain again, she turns away from Trent. But their sparks refuse to die down and when they are th ...more

Trent Palmer can lift me over his shoulder any day!
Izzy and Trent's relationship starts off with conflict of the worst kind. Grief. Izzy blames Trent for the loss of her brother, but really she's protecting her heart. She can't go through a loss like that again.
Trent has his own battles. Yet not only does he fight fire, he wins my heart by fighting for Izzy. Right from the start he doesn't want to give up on them and that's what I enjoyed most about this story. And you have to love a trier! I co

This is a great story about learning to carry on with life and live again after grieving the death of a close family member and to let down your walls and let love back into your heart.
Izzy is scared to let anyone get close to her especially local hunky firefighter Trent Palmer after he was unable to save her brother Robbie who died in an explosion at a local garage. She takes out all her anger and bitterness unfairly on Trent and won't pick up where they left off as they were dating for three w

Saved by the Firefighter by Rachel Brimble is a story about family, friendships, grief, love and second chances. I liked how this story evolved with the characters growing and learning to trust and forgive.

SAVED BY THE FIREFIGHTER is a strongly emotional and realistic look at the grieving of heroine Izzy Cooper when her firefighter brother is killed on the job. I've never read a book by Ms Brimble before and I am glad I was given the chance to read this poignant tale.
It's been three months since the death of her brother Robbie, but Izzy isn't coping well. She had been dating his friend Trent, but broke things off in her grief. She also pushed her best friend Kate away as well. Instead of reaching

When I got the opportunity to review this romance novel, I jumped on it. Not only will I never say no to a fiery hot firefighter (pardon the pun), but I had also heard good things about the author. The cover also appealed to me. I’m glad I gave it a chance, because this story is going to stay with me for quite a while.

I felt for Izzy immediately, pulled into the story with a bang and a few tears. She remained believable and lovable throughout the book. I think if I were in a similar situation, f

I was given this book for free in exchange for an honest review.

After her only sibling, Robbie, dies in a fire, Izzy is at loose ends. She is angry and grieving, and wants someone to blame. Even though she knows in her heart that her brother's friend and fellow firefighter Trent couldn't have changed what happens, she finds herself giving him a hard time when he tries to help.

Sixth in the Templeton Cove series, the focus is on photographer Izzy Cooper and firefighter Trent Palmer. She lost her brother in a fire; he lost his sister the same way. Izzy doesn't trust that she can love anyone in such a dangerous profession as Trent's. He began firefighting as penance for Aimee and to prevent others from dying as she did, and he can't imagine not fighting fires.

Each loves the other, but fear prevents them from moving forward until Izzy is commissioned to create a calendar

ARC Review: Saved by the Firefighter (Templeton Cove) by Rachel Brimble

Ms. Brimble is stellar at getting the emotional juices flowing. With Izzy and Trent she provides a front row seat to Izzy's struggle with grief and Trent's battle with guilt. In my opinion Saved by the Firefighter was more of a redemption story than a romance. The connection between Trent and Izzy seemed more like a friendship gone wrong than two people fighting an attraction. For that reason I was not a fan of the attempted

Izzy is a professional photographer. Trent is a firefighter. They shared a relationship early on but when Trent couldn't save her brother, a fellow firefighter, Izzy can't forgive him. She struggles with the loss of her brother and her photography changes to express just how dark and distant she becomes. When Izzy is put to task into making a Firefighter calendar, it forces her to come to terms with her past and her loss. Trent won't give up on the love he knows he and Izzy share.

Take two wonderful, generous, good looking people who care about others, toss them into a close community where everyone feels they are made for each other, and what could possibly go wrong?
I think both the author and I worked out some grief issues as we made our way cover to cover in this complex lesson on how different people grieve.

The book begins by showing us the HOT chemistry that exists between photographer Izzy Cooper and her brother Robbie's best friend, firefighter Trent Palmer. We see

I was fortunate enough to win a copy of this book from Rachel Brimble herself at a Facebook release party. What a treat! I very much enjoyed getting lost in Izzy and Trent's story over my summer vacation. Both hero and heroine are grieving siblings they lost in fires, but their methods of dealing with the past are very different. Will their difference force them to deny the flames burning within them, for one another? You'll have to read their story to find out but I can guarantee you won't be d ...more

Originally reviewed at My Devastating Reads This story is largely about grief, which isn't an easy sell in the romance genre--at least I would imagine since romance is all about the happily ever after. And I have to say, this novel wasn't what I expected. I was expecting something light and sweet but this novel isn't exactly light and sweet. There's a lot of heartbreak and loss, which made this sort of a puzzling read for me.

Izzy has suffered the loss of a beloved sibling, and along with that sh

In Saved by the Firefighter Izzy and Trent's journey through grief to acceptance, from the pain of losing a loved one to starting to heal and live again is touching and absorbing.
Izzy deals with grief in her own way and seems to be stuck in the angry stage of it. She's pushing everyone away, needing her space to breath again, and from the fear of losing a loved one again she rather stays alone. Trent's patience with her is remarkable and admirable. Constantly on his toes never knowing when she
