Review: Ultimate Sacrifice by KC Lynn

The Men of Fire Station two: A brotherhood bound by courage, honor, and sacrifice.

Hard work and dedication brought Austin Hawke up the ranks at his department, eventually earning him Lieutenant position. He was more than ready to lead his fellow brothers but one fatal call leads to tragedy and a danger they never saw coming.

Meanwhile, his personal life is just as destructive. All thanks to the gorgeous sports bar owner he shared an unforgettable night with only to have her slip out on him before the morning sun. Zoey thought she could escape him without a fight but what she fails to realize is Austin doesn’t give up when he wants something, and he wants Zoey.

Zoey Anderson had dreams of exploring the world, capturing its beauty behind a lens, but all that changed the moment her disabled sister was born. Due to their loveless home, Zoey dropped her dreams and took on the role of caring for her younger sister. A decision she could never regret. 

Taking her life by storm, Austin Hawke crashes through all the barriers she placed around her carefully guarded heart. When passion burns and devastation strikes, Zoey quickly learns that love doesn't come without sacrifice.

Review by Lisa Kane

Zoey is crazy about Austin Hawke. The hot firefighter fans her flame but she is so stretched to the limit between managing her bar and looking out for her sick sister. Their parents are total losers. Her dad left when Zoey was 15 and her mother's only priorities are booze and men. Chrissy is afflicted with a severe case of cerebral palsy and Zoey had to place her in a facility. She just can't afford around the clock live in help, so instead she busts her butt to scrap together every nickel she can to take care of Chrissy.

Zoey knows Austin deserves more, but she can only give him one night. One magical night that is all that the two of them have dreamed of with each other.

"I want you but I only have tonight."
"What if I want more than one night? What if I don't want to let you go after this is over?"

All Zoey can do is yearn for what she can't have. All Austin can do is hope that Zoey sees that she can have more than what she is settling for.

It's not just Zoey's reluctance to give them a chance that Austin is dealing with; it seems that there is a crazed arsonist in town and that person is getting more daring and dangerous with every fire. Could it be someone close to the firefighters themselves?

"Are the police any closer to catching the arsonist?"
"no." Frustration burns inside of me as I think just how far they are from catching the bastard. "These fires are unlike anything I've ever encountered, there's no telling what this asshole will do next."

Austin is determined to break down Zoey's barriers. He is so sweet with her sister, so loving. Whatever it takes, he's willing to do.

"You can run, Zoey girl, but I'll always catch you."
My heart prances in my chest. "Is that a promise?"
"Damn straight."

There are so many different emotions in this story. Steamy encounters, and heartbreaking moments of a girl trying so desperately to help her sister. We know that Austin is the real deal and is the man for Zoey. But will she let down her walls long enough to see that she can trust someone to be there for her?

With him, I am home.
