Synopsis (Goodreads):
In the remote Rocky Mountains, lives depend on the Search & Rescue brotherhood. But in a place this far off the map, trust is hard to come by and secrets can be murder...

As a Motorcycle Club member and firefighter, Ian Walsh is used to riding the line between the good guys and the bad. He may owe the Club his life, but his heart rests with his fire station brothers...and with the girl he's loved since they were kids, Rory Sorenson. Ian would do anything for Rory. He'd die for her. Kill for her. Defend her to his last breath-and he may just have to.

Every con in the Rockies knows Rory is the go-to girl for less-than-legal firearms, and for the past few years, she's managed to keep the peace between dangerous factions by remaining strictly neutral. But when she defends herself against a brutal attack, Rory finds herself catapulted into the center of a Motorcycle Club war-with only Ian standing between her and a threat greater than either of them could have imagined.
Thoughts on Fan the Flames: Things are just as dangerous as ever for the men and women who run Search and Rescue in Simpson. They're still trying to figure out the whys and hows of the dead body they found in book 1, there's a suspicious fire or two, and the hunkiest firefighter in town is caught between his old MC and the people he's come to trust and rely on in the search and rescue teams.

Ian's in a tough spot. The Riders are making problems for the woman he's half in love with. Evidence links him to the dead body found earlier. Oh, and his girl is kinda squirrely when it comes to relationships. With reason, as it turns out.

Rory...well, Rory has some interesting issues to deal with even before she gets tangled up about Ian. Her sheltered upbringing makes her socially awkward at the best of times and I genuinely felt for her when she'd get frustrated and embarrassed over her lack of understanding in social situations. Her tension over letting Ian see a side of her she'd never shown anyone made her incredibly endearing and I was rooting for her from their first encounter. (Also, awwwww to her reason for loving the color she loves!)

We got a few more pieces to the puzzle about who might have been behind the murder of the well-named HDG. We got to see some tension in the ranks of both the firefighters and the police when it comes to a certain hunky firefighter. On the other hand, we also got to see how quickly the town pulls together to help when one of their own needs them.

Book 3 is calling to me.
