Series: Carlisle Deputies
Jordan Erichsohn suspects something is rotten about his boss, Judge Crawford. Unfortunately he has nowhere to turn and doubts anyone will believe his claims—least of all the handsome deputy, Pierre Ravelle, who has been assigned to protect the judge, as he’s been receiving the threatening letters. The judge has a long reach, and if he finds out Jordan’s turned on him, he might impede Jordan adopting his son, Jeremiah.
When Jordan can no longer stay silent, he gathers his courage and tells Pierre what he knows. To his surprise and relief, Pierre believes him, and Jordan finds an ally… and maybe more. Pierre vows to do what it takes to protect Jordan and Jeremiah and see justice done. He’s willing to fight for the man he’s growing to love and the family he’s starting to think of as his own. But Crawford is a powerful and dangerous enemy, and he’s not above ripping apart everything Jordan and Pierre are trying to build in order to save himself…
I like Andrew Grey’s work because with him I know I’m getting a straight forward romance with a touch of hot sex. Problems never amount to much of an obstacle and there is always a happy ending. Fire and Flint is no different. Although the story takes place within the Carlisle Deputies series it can be read alone. There are mentions of characters from other books but they do not feature heavily. The story focuses on Pierre and his budding relationship with Jordan who is in the process of adopting four year old Jeremiah. Jeremiah is a sweetheart. Possibly a bit too adult at times but I excused this by thinking he would’ve had to grow up quite fast being in care. Pierre meets Jordan when he is assigned to protect the Judge Jordan works for. Jordan knows something fishy is going on with the Judge but is reluctant to say anything with Jeremiah’s adoption so close to being finalised. This is a love at first sight story for Pierre. Jordan is the guy for him and when he meets Jeremiah his heart goes out to him as well. I loved seeing them get to know each other in a growing little family. The two aspects of the story, relationship/family and the investigation into the Judge worked well together. I liked seeing how as Pierre investigated a corrupt judge ruined people’s lives and families. And It’s Pierre’s aim to get justice for them whilst protecting his own budding family.
I found this to be a quick an easy read no huge surprises and a little suspense. Worth reading if you want to escape into happy without a holiday theme.
