Brave the Heat by Sara Humphreys

Author: Sara Humphreys
Publisher: Sourcebooks Casablanca
Date of publication:  September 2015
Jordan McKenna is back in town, and Fire Chief Gavin Maguire’s feelings when he sees her after all these years are as raw as the day she left. Then he was just a kid wearing his heart on his sleeve. Now he spends every day trying to atone for the tragedy he couldn’t prevent.
Jordan’s life has not exactly worked out the way she expected. A divorced mother of two with a failed acting career, Jordan’s biggest concern about coming back to Old Brookfield was seeing her first love. But when a series of suspicious fires breaks out, Jordan and Gavin realize that dealing with the sparks between them may be the least dangerous of their problems.

Brave the Heat is the first in a series about five brothers.  I think they are set up as a stand-alones because this book focuses on only Gavin.  The other brothers show up in the end so the reader doesn't really get a chance to know them.  Gavin and Jordan have a history.  She ran away 15 years before and Gavin still has a thing for her.  Now she is back in town, divorced and with two little girls in tow.

I really liked this second chance romance.  I enjoyed watching Gavin and Jordan find their way back to each other.  Their history made their love story more believable and sweeter.  Jordan's two daughters were adorable.  I loved how Gavin's parents still acted like teenagers in love.  They were hilarious and I look forward to seeing them in future books. We also get treated to a little mystery and that kept things exciting.  

I have the latest book, Trouble Walks In, in my TBR.  I can't wait for Maddy and Ronan's story!
