Men In Uniform: Up in Flames
by S.C. Wynne

SC Wynne Presents:


Avery Syracuse is a New York transplant with the Skeenville Fire Department. He’s a little rough around the edges, but loveable. Down on his luck in the romance department, he could use some help with the bills and is looking for a roommate when new transfer, Luke Turner arrives.

Luke is one of the best firemen Avery has ever seen, and it doesn’t make sense for Luke to be wasting his time in Skeenville. The two men have an instant connection, although Luke has never been into guys before. While Avery is very attracted to Luke, he knows there is something the guy is hiding, and he’s worried that if they get involved, this secret may come around and bite him in the ass one day.




Two sexy firemen yum. Avery is a big straight talking gruff New York Italian who has just broken up with his cheating cop boyfriend. Luke is new to the Station and seems to bring a lot of baggage with him. That doesn’t put Avery off his attraction to Luke. I like the way this gay for you story has both of them talking through their feelings and doubts before giving in to lust rather than after. There is great chemistry between them driving the story along.

They both have issues. Avery is scared to commit to a relationship again an keeps pushing Luke to tell him what’s bothering him. Luke can’t bring himself to talk about it though and it strains their relationship before it gets a chance to begin. It all gets sorted out in the end and they get their happy every after but I had just got invested in the story when it ended. All in all it’s still a good afternoon read with hot hunky firemen, can’t go wrong with that.

4 of 5 stars
