Review: Fighting the Fire by Laura Kaye

For firefighter Sean Riddick, Warrior Fight Club keeps the demons of his past at bay, even though it means seeing Daniela England. Her ball-busting sarcasm drives him nuts, and he knows he’s damaged goods anyway, but he can’t help but remember how good they were together that one time. Now he wants to take her to the mats no matter how much they go toe to toe.

ER nurse Daniela England has lost so much that she’s vowed never to need anyone again. Fight club helps her beat back her survivor’s guilt, but it means dealing with Riddick. The hot-but-infuriating firefighter is everything she wants to avoid, which is why their one-night stand was a mistake. Now she needs to keep her distance so it doesn’t happen again.

But when Dani witnesses Sean’s motorcycle accident, she steps up to help him recover. One on one, they get beneath all the snark and find a connection neither expected. As Sean heals, the sparks between them burst into red-hot passion—and ignite old wounds. Now there are fires all around—and they have to decide which they’ll fight and which they’ll let consume them.
Fighting the Fire is the third book in Kaye's Warrior Fight Club. It starts off with the two main characters already knowing each other so I really expect the author to do the falling in love early in the book thing. I was so glad that she made us and them work for "that love". 

At first, I couldn't understand why they were so snippy at each other. More so Dani but Sean gave as good as he got. You'd think at first that these two hated each other until you realized what they were doing is foreplay. Plus it didn't help that Dani has some issues she hasn't worked through. 

I really liked these two together and it has nothing to do with the fact that they both love Deadpool. Or that Sean is more a Marvel fan. Both are just a plus in my eyes. 

I will say that the road to happiness wasn't easy for these two. Both fought it and felt that they couldn't be happy. Silly people. At times though Dani's issues kinda pissed me off. She was really rude sometimes to Sean for nothing. Since I understood why she was acting this way I gave her a pass but I still felt so bad for Sean. 

The ending of this story is so good. I love how it worked out for them and beyond. Thanks, Kaye for giving us just that little more to see where the characters are headed after the "I love yous". If you really like stories where the characters have overcome things in their pasts and still at times deal with them then you'll love this series. I will tell you that if you are not a fan of foul language then this might not be for you. It might have been a long wait for Fighting the Fire but it was well worth the wait. Have any of you read her?
