About this ebook

Ground Zero: The center or origin of rapid, intense, or violent activity

I carried her lifeless body out of a burning building.

One that collapsed on top of us, forcing us to fight for survival.

Where she gave her life so that I could live.

That nightmare wasn’t the happy ending I thought I’d find in the flames.

Turns out, it wasn’t our ending at all.

It was the beginning of our story.

The one where I fell in love without ever knowing her...

Or the destruction she would thrust into my path.

This is book one in The Birch County Fire Series and it is Nia and Josh's story and omg what a great start to a new series and definitely a must read. Josh is a cop but this is his last day as he is going to be a full time firefighter which he has been doing for a long time. Nia is a paramedic and has sworn off dating or having a relationship with a cops after the last disaster but seeing the handsome cop she wouldn't mind having him for the night. After Nia and Josh spent a amazing night together Nia left while Josh was a sleep and even though he tried to find her he couldn't but he never forgot her and now date has given him a second chance of only he could convince Nia to take a chance on him so that they can see where it goes. Nia and Josh has such intense chemistry and it was so hot that you could feel it sizzling of the pages of the book and I couldn't put it down as it was so addictive and full of emotions that had me in tears. I have now read quite a few books by April Canavan who is an amazing author and writer and I definitely look forward to reading more of her books as they are definitely worth reading. I received a free copy of this book via Booksprout and am voluntarily leaving a review.

This is the first story in the new "Birch Fire Department" series. It is a stand alone read but you do see some familiar characters especially from the "Birch Police Department" stories. This one is about Nia and Josh. The first set eyes on each other in Rockabilly’s roller rink, not in Birch. Nia is there with her sister and niece. The niece, for her age, is hilarious with a kick rear-end attitude. Josh is there visiting with his friend Jackson. They see each other and the attraction is immediate but before they can meet an incident happens. Later that day they are pushed together, officially meet and have a fun night. She disappears on him because she refuses to date another police office. Several months later they meet again. What she doesn't know is the night they met was his last night as a police officer. The next day he was going full time with the Birch fire department. The characters are great! The attraction between them is intense. The secondary characters are great as well. This story does have some great and witty dialogue, fire, danger, murder, suspense, passion, love, forgiveness, excitement and good twists and turns. I loved every bit of this story!! I just wish we had found out what happened to Josh's friends Jackson; maybe there is a story to come.

I loved this first book in the Birch County Fire series. I've read the Birch County Heroes novels and I wanted to read Nia's story ever since I met her in that series. We also meet Josh in that series as a savior and secondary character. Josh and Nia's story was exciting and really steamy. I got drawn completely into the story from the very first chapter and I really liked both characters immediately. The drama that they went through working for the EMT and fire team was thrilling and mad me wonder who the actual villain was. I enjoyed that we get to revisit some of the major characters in the 'Birch County Heroes series for a tad bit and we get to meet new characters in the Birch County Fire department I I can't wait to read their stories either. I am really loving April Canavan's series' so far. Definitely another recommended read! I received a free copy of this book via Booksprout and am voluntarily leaving a review.
