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 after he received 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 liked this story when I read it but having Greg Tremblay read it to me was great. Fire and Flint is a stand-alone story and an off shoot of the Carlise cops series. I do like how Andrew Grey has carried on with t world building and set several stories in this area. The book mentions the club from Broncos Boys as well as including a few characters from the Carlise cops. It gives me a greater sense of the community. As with many Andre Grey books this is a gentle romance. Pierre is winning over not just Jordan but also his son Jeremiah. He also protects them when Judge Crawford tries to ruin Jeremiah’s adoption. I liked the pace of the story slow and sweet enough but with an element of how are they going to beat this self centred cruel judge and get justice.
Greg Tremblay builds on the story giving the characters vitality and emphasising their determination. He gives them such distinct voices and personalities it’s a pleasure to listen to. I recommend this easy listening audiobook.
