Just look at that cover. An alpha male specimen if ever I saw one and them holy hotness to top it off he is a fireman who also just happens to be a member of a Motorcycle club!

Well actually not in the way you'd think because Ian has depths I hadn't expected and a patience that needs rewarding and then of course there's the fact that this beautiful man is brave and kind, which kind of makes him the stuff that dreams are made of. Rory has been alone since her parents died three years previously and now runs their gun store. Her delusional parents kept her isolated due to paranoia but Rory is a survivor.
She might appear quiet and aloof but for far too many years her heart has been taken by the boy who once gave her a pink cupcake and guess what? The fully grown Ian seems determined to be her friend! Ok Rory can pretend to keep a clear head but when the local MC start getting a little too close for comfort Ian is not going anywhere. I won't lie this is a new author to me and I had no idea that this book is part of a series in which apparently a headless corpse was discovered during the first book Hold Your Breath.
That plays a huge part in this story as the consequences are very far reaching. There's no resolution to the murder here but I spotted a small clue and yes that means it's kind of a cliff hanger which I know many readers hate. There's a wealth of characters to smile at and even some who clearly need a good talking to! The guys Ian works with are simply adorable and I'd personally like to see Ians friend Steve get a happy ever after.
Rory is quirky and such fun to read about. Whether it's her zombie apocalypse drills or even her lack of social skills she just doesn't see that so many in the town truly have her back. If you enjoy reading about small towns this mountain retreat will be a delight but I'd advise taking snow shoes! Yes I had fun reading this and guess it's a romantic suspense but the romance is sweet and slow. Hot guy and cute girl and all wrapped up in a murder mystery with more than one turbulent problem to deal with. As I mentioned the mystery continues and the ending here opens a whole new can of worms!
I was gifted a copy via Netgalley in exchange for an honest review Romance Series : - 2 in the series. Was so happy I got an ARC. The heroine here was a little bit different. She owned a gun shop, had been home schooled, not really allowed friends, her paranoid parents had "trained" her for any sort of end of the world situation.
She was a bit of a hermit and very socially awkward unless she was talking about guns. And the hero Ian, I had been intrigued by him since the first book. And I loved him here. He was a fire-fighter in an MC and found both these sides of him caused conflict. He felt torn between the two. But what did not cause him conflict, was how much he adored Rory.
It soon became obvious just how much he liked her, and had wanted her and waited for her for years. Again, the story line regarding the body in the lake from book one continues here, with a storyline specific to this book with regards to troubles with the MC. I am loving this series and it just gets better and better. Interesting, engaging, very different characters in each book so far. It is building up to be a great romantic suspense series.

I have since been informed that she also writes as Katie Allen This has been a pretty nice series so far. I can't believe this is only Ruggles third book; she's writing like a seasoned pro. The base of the series is the Search and Rescue teams located in the Rocky mountains of Colorado, in and around the town of Simpson.
This time around we have Ian, who is part of the local biker gang, but also a fireman. Rory runs a gun shop, and is not above selling a bit of inventory from the back of the store. After Rory and Ian get together, a couple of Ian's biker gang break into Rory's gun store, there is a gun battle where two of the bikers are killed by Rory and Ian. After this the biker gang begin to put several revenge plots into action. There is a lot of interesting SAR action going on, and the investigation into the murder of the 'headless dead guy' found in the reservoir the first book continues.
This is some pretty good stuff. Not perfect, but I'm enjoying it. I'm liking this well-written, quite interesting series. View all 3 comments. Talk about walking the line down the middle! Ian 'Beauty' Walsh is fire fighter for his day job and an MC brother in the shadows. And an absolutely scorching hot day dream of nearly every woman in town. The title says it, folks. This book fans the flames of actual fires, fires of passion, fires of revenge, and fires of friendship.
The first book's introduction to the series arc, setting, backdrop, and the main body of characters shouldn't be skipped even though a new couple has the lime light in Talk about walking the line down the middle! The first book's introduction to the series arc, setting, backdrop, and the main body of characters shouldn't be skipped even though a new couple has the lime light in this one. Rory Sorenson runs the local gun shop dealing legally out the front and some illegal merchandise out the back.
As a gun dealer, naturally the law glances her way occasionally, but at the same time she has to tip toe cautiously around the local criminal element. Rory is no pushover, though. Growing up with two paranoid, off the grid conspiracy theorists who taught her that the world is a dangerous place and how to live through anything, Rory can and has taken care of herself.
While other kids went to school, had birthdays, shopped at malls, and ate Mac N Cheese out the box, she was being drilled and armed for the zombie-apocalypse. As an adult, she now flounders in social situations that don't involve talking guns or off-grid survival. Ian Walsh knows he walks a fine line with his divided loyalties, but he has always been able to make it work. He's a dependable, tough, and hard-working firefighter and loves what he does, but there is another side.
He grew up in and around the club becoming a brother just like his step-dad who has now lost all interest in life when Ian's mom died. Since he was a young teen, he has had an interest in Rory. He sees past her quirky, innocent and yet sad big eyes full of knowledge and wants this unspoiled and quiet beauty with a quiet inner strength.
Now, that Rory is in the cross hairs of his MC club and someone is prowling around her property at night, he takes the initiative to move one step from long-time friend to something more by being her big unwanted protector. Caution is required because Rory is skittish. Ian works to bring her out of her shell, not just accepting of him, but of joining in with the community where she can make friends and be a part of something.
He knows she has what it takes to be a volunteer firefighter so coaxes her into training and bonus, he can watch over her. Rory can shoot better than any man including him, but Ian knows that Billy and the other members are gunning for her after she takes down one of their own. Meanwhile, the whole town is on edge with Lou's stalker having been taken cared of, the ongoing murder investigation of Headless Dead Guy with Ian marked as the prime suspect, and also the continued suspicious fires being set.
Meth lab. An MC club boiling over. And Ian and Rory right in the middle of it all. In this book, the firefighters got the spotlight though the police and ice rescue are there in the background. I loved that the author didn't chintz on exciting fire rescue scenes that blended with the building relationship plot or daily life friends or home scenes.
It was also interesting to make Rory have such a unique background that left her socially innocent, but yet a very capable vibrant woman. Rory has to make a conscious choice to step out of her bunker-life and into the big wide world. I liked how she didn't alter in her basic ways.
Ian, too, came from a different background with a similar choice. Only, he had to figure out if he could continue embracing both worlds or if he had to let one go. Ian and Rory's romance was extremely slow-burn. Rory has never been kissed, casually touched, been out to eat let alone a date, had a girlfriend to share secrets and boy talk, or anything that would prepare her for a relationship with a man. Ian is this big, capable, intimidating looking man both in size and looks, but he is all in when it comes to gently and patiently, but firmly coaxing out Rory.
And his intense focus leaves her feeling like prey who is safe in the wolf's hands. When she needed to step back and access, he let her.

He thought she was adorable and never once was ashamed because she struggled so much to be 'normal'. But the passion even on simmer until near the end was palpable.
Callum and Lou who were the first book's pair are strong secondary characters and I loved getting the extra time with them along with a few other familiar faces Phil, Phil, that man cracks me up. And the band of firefighters Ian works with? Too fun! Those guys are a bust up especially when they flirt with Rory to yank Ian's chain a bit.
The MC angle was mostly left as the catalyst that drove the action of the plot, but also forced Ian to make a choice as the downward progression happened as the President and certain other members of the MC lash out and things get unstable forcing loyal brothers to question where things are going. As to the ongoing murder, there wasn't much advancement though it places a strong role in the story as the law has tapped Ian since his pendant was found in evidence near the body.
But, Katie Ruggle! That last teaser at the end. Now I really need the next installment. All in all, the follow-up books was a bang-up success as I just knew it would be after encountering Ian in book one. Those who love action-filed slow burn contemporary romance or light romantic suspense need to jump on these books. My thanks to Sourcebooks Casablanca for the book in exchange for an honest review. I hate it when this happens…When I love the first book in the series and then the second ruins all the good feels.
All the feels. Blah blah blah. And since it was all about Rory and her not-in-a-good-way craziness, everything else suffered. What romance? The hero and heroine getting together and finally knocking boots was merely another plot device with no feeling, no depth, nothing. I was seriously considering DNF-ing this one, but my stubborn streak kicked in and I wanted to see if the story got better. I wanted it to get better. Good stuff! This is excellent romantic suspense.
Loved Ian and Rory and all of the side characters. We also get to see Callum and Lou from book 1. I'm impressed with the more unique backgrounds of main characters in this series. It really adds to the story and relationship intrigue. On to the next! I liked Ian in previous stories so I was happy to see his book come up.
It was enjoyable while being interesting and engaging. Rory is an unusual woman. She was born to parents that were disillusioned with the world and became preppers, getting ready for the time when society goes to hell. Rory lost her parents 3 years ago and she took over the family's gun shop. Unfortunately, after being home schooled and conditioned since childhood to keep to herself, R Unfortunately, after being home schooled and conditioned since childhood to keep to herself, Rory doesn't socialize much.
Ian is a fireman and also a member of a motorcycle club that isn't necessarily on the right side of the law. Ian got a lot out of the club when he was younger and has always felt he owed them. However, he also has the need to help people and his brothers in the club saw his job choice as being a slap in the face. Things have been tense for a while and Ian's been trying to straddle the line between his two lives. Ian and Rory met for the first time when they were 12 years old. Rory's parents tried to be self-sufficient and didn't buy much in the store but Rory got to go along on a rare trip and met Ian.
Ian bought Rory a cupcake and started her love for rarely attained sugary treats. They saw each other over the years but never got too close. When Ian comes around and hears that Rory has been having someone lurking around the gun store at night and setting off the alarm, Ian becomes very protective. Rory is apprehensive because she's had a crush on Ian since he bought her the cupcake but never thought he's want her in return. Ian had basically the same thoughts about her so when he realizes that Rory is actually attracted to him, he makes it his mission to win her.
Rory holds back of course and denies the blooming relationship with Ian when everyone in town is talking about it but no one truly believes her protestations. There is trouble to deal with, part of it was already coming but part of it got exacerbated by issues that take place in this story. Allegiances are tested and some fall apart while others stand strong. Ian and Rory get through a lot danger and a good amount of drama, coming out of it doing well and heading towards and HEA together.
This was a really enjoyable story. I liked Rory as the heroine. She grew up being trained to be ready to handle anything I really liked seeing her get her bearings, making friends as well as getting together with Ian. Ian was a great hero and I liked how he did what was needed to protect those he cares about. Overall, this was a really good story that kept me engaged through to the end so I'd recommend it. Guns and motorcycle gangs. Two subjects for which I have absolutely no interest.
I don't care about them. In the case of motorcycle gangs I don't get them at all. They make no sense to me. That matters in this story. This is a story where guns and motorcycle gangs play a huge role, so unfortunately I was not really all that engaged in the book for a good portion of it. I had a hard time relating to or caring about the two main characters of this story, Rory and Ian. I felt like I shoul Guns and motorcycle gangs. I felt like I should have been more intrigued by them. Their histories should be fascinating Rory the daughter of isolationist survivalists who see danger and conspiracy all around them and Ian the product of the less-than-legally-minded motorcycle gang "family" juxtaposed with his job as a law-abiding firefighter.
There were all sorts of opportunities to really dig into these complex histories and personalities, but instead I felt like Katie Ruggle relaxed and relied on stereotypes. The motorcycle gang members were all just so bad that they weren't all that interesting. Rory really didn't spend too much time digging into her past, and for as whacked out as her parents seemed to be, she seemed to jump right into society with barely a bleep.
I am convinced that this is a book that will appeal to lots of people, but I didn't enjoy it nearly as much as I did the first book in the series. I didn't care for the main characters, even though there wasn't anything terribly wrong with them, so I didn't feel a huge drive to keep reading the story. I feel like there were some missed opportunities to make this a stronger story. I liked it well enough I am glad everyone got their HEA ending. But I don't think I'm going to continue on in this series at this time We'll see how it goes.
I might pick it up later someday. Three stars. Jul 02, CC rated it really liked it Shelves: audible , series , safe-for-me , friends-to-lovers. Gotta say I liked this one more than I thought I would after reading the reviews. Ian was awesome and I thought Rory was perfect for him. She also totally had his back. She is a little too weird for me to like her as much as I loved Lou from book 1 but for someone with her upbringing and what her parents almost did to her - she was remarkably well adjusted.
Another great edition to the series.

Who knew that a small mountain town like Simpson could be such a hotbed of criminal activity, murder and intrigue? I'm really loving this series, especially the heroines and wish I didn't have to wait so long for the next book.
The interactions between Ian and Rory left me in stitches but I like that Ms. Ruggle gave us characters Who knew that a small mountain town like Simpson could be such a hotbed of criminal activity, murder and intrigue? Ruggle gave us characters that were unexpected and endearing. Ian Walsh is a man with his loyalties split between his firefighting brethren and the motorcycle club that he grew up in, but the one thing that's not in question is his feelings for Rory Sorenson and his total dedication to her.
He's been named a person of interest in the murder case that has captivated the entire town, but he'll defend her to the death when his MC Brothers decide to attack her, a choice that pits him against his club. Rory grew up off the grid with paranoid survivalists for parents, an upbringing that has left her socially awkward and out of her element with everyday interactions, especially with the man she's had a crush on since she was a pre-teen, but one thing she isn't is helpless and that's a lesson anyone who wants to take advantage of her learns the hard way.
As the owner of a gun shop, she does business with the less than savory side of humanity and knows that she has to be tough to deal with her criminally minded customers, but it helps to have someone at her back. Rory and Ian are an unlikely pairing but are perfect for each other. With his looks and associations, one would expect Ian to be a cocky know-it-all, but he's really a patient and determined man who was quite adept at handling Rory.
He really deserves the moniker of 'Rory-whisperer' because dealing with her at times was like trying to domesticate a wild cat. Rory is fiercely independent and self-reliant but I liked seeing her take a chance and connect with new friends for the first time, as well as realize that there was a life outside her bunker within a community that respected her and would come to her aid when she needed help.
One thing I enjoy about this series is that the relationship drama is really low, which balances out all the other action going on. While the books in this series are all stand alone, there is an overarching mystery that runs through the series, so I would recommend reading in order for the best experience.

Ian Walsh is a firefighter, but also has ties to a motorcycle club. So he is a man that does not really fit perfectly in either group. He already has people watching him closely. Rory Sorenson runs her parents' old gun shop with a bit of a black market side business. She's basically a hermit, socially awkward, introverted, and a self proclaimed freak. She grew up with paranoid parents and their beliefs shaped her life.

She's recently made some enemies and they've been coming after her and her inventory. Ian and Rory have know each other for years and have had secret crushes. But I an is now determined to protect her and keep her safe. And he also wants to stake his claim. He's fierce, sexy, and strong. Rory is insecure and inept at relationships. She has no clue why someone as dynamic as Ian is interested in her.
But they have a friendship, rapport and sexual tension that keeps building. They find themselves immersed in a dangerous situations and angering their enemies. While they are dodging all types of threats, they are getting closer and closer. But will they both come out of it unscathed? Some of the characters from previous books are back : Callum and Lou, the police, the MC Guys, and the firehouse crew.
I really liked Ian's firefighter friends Soup and Steve. We also meet a quiet mountain man named George who will be the hero in the next book. This was romantic suspense with a lot of danger and action. The romance was a very slow build due to their friendship and her inexperience, but it worked for the story.
And when she felt the need to protect something or someone, she acted before thinking. This one had a different feel than the novella and first book because it focused more on the firehouse, gun shop, and MC versus the dive team or mountain rescue. But what I enjoy about this series is the sense of community and family with rescue workers and how they band together in times of trouble. And both Ian and Rory had all kinds of trouble to deal with. I am really hoping to see single Dad and Sheriff Rob, single dad and firefighter Steve, or outspoken goofball firefighter Soup get a book.
And we are still learning more about the dead body from book one in the mysterious, ongoing, unsolved story arc. ARC provided by publisher and author in exchange for an honest review.
Ian is not only an MC member, but also a firefighter. He owes his life to the MC, but his heart lies with being a firefighter. And of course, there is Rory. Ian has been in love with Rory since they were kids. And those lengths may just have to be tested…. This is life she lives. Overall, I really enjoyed Fan The Flames. I loved the characters and the story-line. The suspense once again pulling me in and keeping me on my toes.
As with the first book, this story is more suspense driven, than romance driven. But, I have to say, that I really, really enjoyed the slow building relationship between Ian and Rory. The tension between the two of them was intense. Fan The Flames was an exciting read from start to finish. I loved the action and excitement. There was danger and mystery. There was romance and some sexy good times. Overall, a really enjoyable story. And even though it wraps everything up, you are given a taste of what is to come in the next book and I for one can not wait to see where this series is going to go next!

It's primarily a romance with some action. I had a hard time buying Ian as both a firefighter and a member of a criminal motorcycle club. They were an odd fit. To Ruggle's credit, she doesn't gloss over the difficulties he has in fitting in with both groups and the grie Now, "Fan the Flames" wasn't quite as satisfying as book 1, "Hold Your Breath" but I did like it. To Ruggle's credit, she doesn't gloss over the difficulties he has in fitting in with both groups and the grief he gets from members of both groups.
Even with Ian's background, I just could never quite buy into or reconcile his membership in both groups. Related to that, Ian's family life was straight out of a soap opera as was Rory's. It's a wonder Rory wasn't a total fruitcake. And yet, she was a little too naive, a little too socially awkward, though there were certainly times i could relate to her awkwardness. Rory was both strong and vulnerable, smart and ignorant, while Ian was exceedingly patient and kind but took no crap from anyone.
They made a good team and worked together well dealing with the threats against each of them. The action was over the top at times but I liked Ian and Rory enough that I could disregard that. We also got character appearances from the earlier stories and that filled out the story nicely, giving us context, and with Lou around, some humor. In all, not the best story in the series, but a solid addition. I have a new girl crush in Rory.
I loved how she was a bit awkward, how people drove her nuts and guns were her refuge, how she slowly let people in and then went to them for advice on things that confounded her. But what I really loved was how both Rory and Ian and crushes on each other for years. I hated that both of them didn't think they were good enough for each other and ended up wasting a lot of time they could have spent together. As Rory was so prickly Ian had to be a bit pushy, but he w I have a new girl crush in Rory. As Rory was so prickly Ian had to be a bit pushy, but he wasn't pushy in a bad way, just made sure he was always around and there for her.
When things started to get physical Ian let Rory set the pace and made sure to let her know that she was in charge and not just once but every time, it made me like him so much more.
Family trip to Europe: best destinations
It was fun to see Rory realize the impact she had on the people that she interacted with. She thought she was forgettable, the weird gun girl. However when bad things started happening they all rallied around her. I think the best was the quiet snow plow driver, best take-down ever!
I loved how this one ended, loved that Rory is out of the shadows and that her and Ian finally are surrounded by people that care about them. Mar 19, Deni rated it it was amazing. Rory is not your usual innocent damsel in distress. While on the surface people see a gun shop owner who keeps to herself, being raised completely shut away from the world has left its scars. Her interaction with Ian is what I loved the best. Rory has no clue what to do when it comes to men and her awkward smart-alecky attitude was so refreshing. No matter how scared she was or how confused she would get in a new unfamiliar situation she never let it stop her from accomplishing what she needed to have done.
From an ARC standpoint I do have to say that there were a few inconsistencies and spelling errors but it in no way shape or form took away from the story. I will most def be buying more stories from this series in the future!!! May 23, Adria Musings and Reviews rated it liked it Shelves: read-and-reviewed.
All conclusions are my own responsibility and I was not compensated for this review. Overall reaction to the story? Describe the hero in five words: Dangerous. Did you like him? Sort of. I had a hard time getting a read on Ian in the beginning. Was he a good guy?
Was he a bad guy? Was he conflicted? A club that had some shady dealings and definitely committed criminal acts. Ian was even in on some of those acts in the past. So just where did he fall as a character? I think he was a bit of both, he was a hero at heart but at the same time he considered a group of dangerous, no-good criminals family. Describe the heroine in five words: Stubborn. Did you like her? Rory had a very isolated upbringing and in a complete spin, now owns a gun shop where she sells firearms legally, and illegally. What a difference right?
I actually liked this about her because her upbringing could have made her a boringly innocent heroine but while she did have an air of innocence, Rory was anything but boring. She was awkward one moment, then facing down a threatening biker the next. To me she was the bigger bad ass between her and Ian. A female arms dealer? Talk about having to face twice as many challenges. I mean, Ian and Rory had known each other for a long time and each secretly had feelings for the other for just that long.
