One alpha man.
One bossy woman.
A fire that won't die.

I f*cked up.
Once upon a time, Amelia was my everything.
Until she wasn't.
I'm home now, and I want her back.
She's never forgiven me for something I didn't even do.
I've never forgiven her for believing the worst.
One look and the years apart go up in smoke.
The minute I lay eyes on Amelia, I'm hard for her.
That smart

Fuck this book. Seriously. I could not wait for it to be over. My gosh. It's a 240 page book and it took me damn near a week to finish. Like that's awful. Especially when I can finish a book this size in a few hours. -.-

Amelia and Cade dated for a mean ass minute when they were young. Shit happened. People lied. Shit was blown out of proportion. And they broke up. Well, seven years later they run into each other. Amelia is hot off running from her almost wedding and Cade is moving back to their

Honestly this was ok. It was a little repetitive. Also I felt like Amelia being tall(5'11) was this big issue and men looked at her like she was manly because of her size. I just didn't like that. Her height was brought up repeatedly. And she talked about settling her someone who didn't love her because that was all she thought she could have. I don't think I would continue with this series.

My first time with this author and I am in loveee! This book was full of hot firefighters, a smidge of drama and A LOT of second chance lovin'. I am super excited to start the next book in this series.

Amelia and Cade went from hot and heavy to a pile of ash when a misunderstanding with a jealous "friend" ended their soul deep relationship. Seven years later, she's a runnaway bride on the same day Cade moves back to town. There was a lot of hurt and stubbornness on both parts, but I hated how

copy received for honest review
The story started off pretty good. Amelia getting drunk in a bar wearing a wedding dress, getting into a fight and being rescued by her old high school sweetheart. AT that point I was loving Amelia and excited to get into the story. After that, it kind of fell off for me. Amelia is not the dainty girl next door. She is an amazonian beauty with insecurities. She is intimidating to most men except Cade. He accepts who she is and loves her to distraction. A
Second chance romance. Love the way this author writes her alpha-possessive firefighter heroes. There's a seven year separation before they reunite. The reason for that separation was a little silly IMO. Still a good read but not as good as book 2 in the series. Book 2, Slow Burn, can be read as a stand alone without reading book 1. First time author for me and I will probably read more of her books.

I liked that she was tall
I get that sometimes you setlle for less because you think it is all you deserve.
I just got annoyed really fast about why they broke up. that was so lame, lame and lame
I ponder reading the next book

I enjoyed the two mc in this one; Cade and Amelia. They had a huge true love romance when they were younger but because of Amelia’s “best friend” Shannon something happens and they are done for. Cade leaves to become a hotshot firefighter. He happens to waltz back into town on Amelia’s wedding day where she left her fiance. They instantly connect again but are both too stubborn to talk about the elephant in the room. To be honest that got kinda annoying. They finally hashed things out and are on ...more

Do you know that author that can hook you up with just the cover? Well this Gal it the one for me. I've read several books from her and I can't get enough
J. H. Croix has an intense, hot and fantastic writing that will make you burn with desire and so much more...
Burn For Me is just another fantastic book... Jeez, and tells the stories of Amelia and Cade.
These two had the future figured out. They will get married until their deaths threw them apart but things got out of hand and one

This was a great read. I really enjoyed that Croix included in the beginning of the book that this was a happy ending book because I was a little worried at a few spots. We follow the love story that had a seven year break! Amelia and Cade are both described as very very stubborn people and that may have cost them years of happiness. Thankfully they are able to put away their stubbornness long enough to really see what is going on between them and what happen all those years ago. I have to say ...more

A love lost then found again.
When high school love was ran off course but neither can truly move on burn for me is the result. A boycotted wedding and a bar fight start off our reunion love and internal battleground of letting the smoldering love burn.
This author's is more addictive than chocolate!

He’s a firefighter, she’s a builder, they were high school sweethearts but let a misunderstanding separate them. He’s home and they are back together. Lots of sexy scenes.

Slow burn

Really liked the first book but Amelia seem like a contradiction. Strong female character yet she didn't have enough faith in her relationship. The reason for her insecurity just didn't match the make up of who she was. Still enjoyed it though.

J.H. Croix knows how to write a story that not only is steamy but gets to me every time. This new series Into The Fire is definitely going to be hot hot hot if this first book is anything to go by. Cade is a hotshot firefighter and returns home after 7 years, avoiding his hometown because of the only woman he loved, Amelia. After a manipulative bi*** comes between them, Amelia avoids all talks and anything to with Cade for 7 years until he comes home. He catches her on one of the worst night's ...more

Good second chance romance. This was my first book by this author, so I didn't know what to expect. Cade and Amelia were in a relationship since high school. However, lies and jealousy ripped them apart and that's how they remained for seven years. When Amelia ends a relationship and Cade comes home, the sparks fly. It was a sweet second chance at love with a little danger, steamy bedroom scenes (they had to reacquainted) and hot firefighters. You had me at hot firefighter!

Good Read

This was my first Croix read. Was quick, had a few simple yet steamy scenes, no cheating or cliffhanger and you get a happy ending. It's missing something that would push this to a great read, but definitely worth your while to kick back and enjoy.
3.75 stars. I saw this promoted on fb and thought I'd try it. First time reading this author.

To say that I have been highly anticipating BURN FOR ME is an accurate statement. First, I truly love stories with firefighters, those brave individuals who repeatedly put their lives on the line. Then there is the added bonus of having a heroine with my own first name, thus making it even easier for me to picture myself in her place! And since the hero is definitely very tempting, I just knew there would be lots of moments making fantasies come true, and I was absolutely right. J.H. Croix ...more

I have so much respect for the men and women who are first responders to firestorms and the explosive nature of their work! I was hoping for some real insights procedurally to grasp their enourmous service to this country! I wa sorry that heroism was just a plotline!
The protagonists were not well developed and the endless longing for each other was repetitive!
So, I accept the inevitable machinations these stories replay to death, about why the couple shouldn't be togather! Lame,

DNF after less than an hour of listening.
This audio CD was in the wrong container I borrowed from a free little library. I thought, What the heck, I'll give it a go.
BAD move! This novel is one of the most vomitous I've had the misfortune to stumble across.
I listened to the first two chapters in full and then about 5 minutes each of the next 5 (skipping to the next chapter after realising that chapter was only going to repeat the boring-as-f scenario that had already been established).

Five Alarm Book

Another exceptional book by one of my favorite authors J. H. Croix. If you have yet to read a J. H. Croix book you are missing out on some soul touching words. You not only get to read some great books but you feel like part of the story. This book is about second chances, insecurities, forgiveness, hope and a love that can not be denied. When Amelia left Cade seven years ago it affected more than just Amelia, the fallout affected the small community they lived in due to the

J H Croix has done it again! She has written a story that grabs you from the first sentence and doesn't let you go until the final word. This is a story of second chances, self-discovery, forgiveness, listening with your heart, and letting go of the past. Cade and Amelia shared a burning, all consuming love 7 years ago, but a supposed BFF drove a wedge between the two and their love was reduced to nothing more than a single smoldering ember. Cade is a hot shot fireman and moved to California for ...more

ARC received for an honest review.

I have to say, scorching hot Second Chance loves are not my favorite kind of romances because they are even more of a fantasy than the ones about billionaires or princes.
But I enjoyed this book. Having lived in Anchorage for 28 years, I found some of the logistics and descriptions inaccurate, but unless you have lived there you wouldn't know that. So it's okay for the author to take some liberties with reality, because after all, this is

Love this book. Another hit from J. H. Croix.

Cade is a hotshot firefighter and a position to be head of a team where he grew up has opened and so he jumps on it. Cade has avoided his hometown since the girl he loved misunderstood something she saw and would not hear him out. He knows she is with someone else and decided that he would find a way to live in the same town.

Amelia has known a fiery passion and on the day of her wedding she confronts the groom and decides that there is no fire in
