Cuando lei el primer libro, el personaje de Sam me llamo mucho la atencion, esperaba que la autora escribiera su historia, imaginense mi alegria cuando mirando en Goodreads descubri que el siguiente libro era sobre el. Aunque si es cierto que al leer la sinopsis, la historia no me llamo demasiado la atencion, aun asi quise leerlo porque tenia mucha curiosidad sobre el pasado de Sam y ademas, el li Caliente Como El Pecado es el segundo libro de la serie Bomberos Ardientes, de la autora Bella Andre.
Aunque si es cierto que al leer la sinopsis, la historia no me llamo demasiado la atencion, aun asi quise leerlo porque tenia mucha curiosidad sobre el pasado de Sam y ademas, el libro anterior me gusto tanto que pense que aunque no alcanzara a ser tan bueno como Calor Salvaje, la lectura valdria la pena. Muy bueno, totalmente recomendado! De Cabeza a leer el tercero.

Not wanting to wait another second to file a missing person report with the police, she reached for her phone, but before she could finish dialing , Sam reached out and took it from her. I just don't buy that a fire fighter would argue against contacting the police in favor of the DIY approach. That on top of the ridiculous trailer park trash turned vain TV star was too much for me.
Oct 31, Kathleen J rated it it was ok Shelves: When the drug dealer dies, his brother blames Dianna and kidnaps her estranged sister, April, who has come to the hospital to see her sister. Their breakup ten years ago came after a previous car accident in which Dianna miscarried his chi Too many WTFs for me Icy roads cause a two-car accident in Vail, Colorado, involving famous newscaster Dianna Kelley and a drug dealer. Their breakup ten years ago came after a previous car accident in which Dianna miscarried his child. Back then, emotional reactions made each feel the other was rejecting them but now Sam, who realizes he still cares for Dianna, insists on helping her locate her sister.
Dangerous hiking, rafting, mountain climbing, a fire, and fights with bad guys all follow, as does true love. Andre writes reasonably well but the characters are flat—he the brooding, never-got-over-her-but-is-afraid-of-getting-involved-with-her-again hero; she, the trailer park girl who worked hard to get to the top but who has never gotten over him. An example of the WTFWhen April manages to temporarily escape her captors she reaches a pay phone at a campground at a park station.
She says nothing to anyone staying there but calls her sister.
When she is unable to reach her, this is what is supposed to be going through her mind: Now April has been held prisoner overnight, her clothes are shredded, she has burns from being tied up, she fell down a hill in her escape so she is beat up. She is also the sister of a famous newscaster. Have you ever heard of a kidnap victim who wouldn't call the police because they thought they won't be believed? In pursuit of the kidnapper, Sam and Dianna must raft white water on a chilly, windy day. There is a damning of much of the river and they must jump into the freezing cold water to avoid a collision.
Sam manages to pull her up on the riverbank. When she comes to she stands up then he backs her up to a rock face, kisses and fondles her, pushes her pants to her ankles and performs oral sex on her. Soooo, Dianna is exhausted, badly chilled, badly beat up, barely conscious, in a desperate chase after the kidnapper, darkness is soon to be upon them, but they stop on a rocky bank to do this?
Later they get a tip that someone saw April on a trail and Sam is concerned about what to do and wants them to think out their best strategy. Might they be wasting their time on a false lead? Might it be a trick to kidnap or attack famous newscaster Dianna? If so, how could they avoid that? I made myself finish this novel but, frankly, it was a chore. I really, really dislike my protagonists acting stupidly and unrealistically just to get the plot to move in the direction the author wishes it to.
After ten years Sam is still grieving the loss of their child and Dianna leaving him. But he cannot stop himself from going to her to help if she needs him. The job you used to love. But there you were, glued to the bar stool when you should have been Overall rating: But there you were, glued to the bar stool when you should have been out fighting fires. He is the man she has loved since the moment they met. Questions need to be answered for both of them about what went wrong.
The man blames her for his death and decides to kill her sister in front of her and then kill her.
Sam steps in to help. He swears that he will help her get her sister back. More than I should. You fought for your career. Maybe this time you should fight for Sam. During the race to save her sister from a madman, Dianna and Sam discover that true love never dies.
The embers just need to be stoked! Sam is just the firefighter to do it. I just tried to convince myself that I had. No Would I recommend this book: This book does not disappoint, it has everything a reader needs in a good book. Characters that heat up the pages with heroic acts and steaming hot sex! Would I read other books by this author: Love this author and the way she tells a story.
Cannot wait to read the next book in the series Men of Fire. Hot as Sin Bella Andre Jan 17, Leah rated it really liked it Shelves: When I saw this book, I was immediately drawn in by the interesting title and the visually appealing cover. When I read that the book was about a firefighter, I just had to buy it, and I do not regret that decision one bit. From the beginning of the book, I was Sam MacKenzie's shoulder to cry on.
I was thoroughly irritated with Dianna When I saw this book, I was immediately drawn in by the interesting title and the visually appealing cover. I was thoroughly irritated with Dianna for a little while because she was putting all the blame on Sam's shoulders when she was the one who left him. And, all the while, I was not acknowledging that it takes two to make or break a relationship, and I could not see that Sam had to have done something to change their relationship also. Every single time that Dianna vaguely mentioned how badly Sam hurt her, I was overcome with the urge to beat the answer to the question, "What did Sam do to her?
Once she explained to him, though, why she left, I started to feel a little more sympathetic towards Dianna, but I was still expressly on "Team Sam. After a while, it stopped being a book about a firefighter for me. It became a suspenseful romance that changed the way I saw the book.
Sam's and Dianna's characters were dynamic and appealed to me on so many levels that it's so hard to count. I highly recommend this book for romance lovers, firefighter lovers, romantic suspense lovers, and everyone else because it's just that good. I'll have to admit I was disappointed in this sequel. It was nowhere near as good as the first book in the series.
The author, Bella Andre , did not show much skill in giving us insights into the motives for the secondary characters actions, and she did an all right but not great job drawing the protagonists. There is an element of the willing suspension of disbelief anytime one enters a fictional world.
The plot of this book goes over that line into unbelievable. There is an evil villian, we are o I'll have to admit I was disappointed in this sequel. There is an evil villian, we are only given a short glimpse of his motivation and thinking. There is an evil sidekick who appears and then is sent away without warning or having his character developed at all.
We have a city girl out in the wilderness with a hotshot wildfire fighter as she tries to locate her sister. It is apparent that Andre has not been out there, if she'd ever lifted the weight of an inflatable boat she'd know that they should have had the helicopter drop the protagonists on the other side of the river closer to their destination I'm sad to say that I will not recommend this book, nor will I read any more of the series.
Dec 02, Barb rated it it was amazing Shelves: Only total desperation could reunite Dianna Kelley with Sam MacKenzie, the irresistible bad boy she walked out on ten years ago. It's a gamble--tracking down her endangered sister while keeping Sam and their undeniable attraction at arm's length. Not easy when they're trekking into a remote corner of the Rockies, where she's got to trust her former lover with her life.
Despite Only total desperation could reunite Dianna Kelley with Sam MacKenzie, the irresistible bad boy she walked out on ten years ago. He'll help find her sister and get Dianna out of his system once and for all. But soon it's hard to tell whether the greatest threat is from the rushing rapids, the deadly enemy on their trail, or the passion that's sending them straight into the line of fire What an awesome story.
Getting to know Sam, Dianna, and April was pure visionary awesomeness. Although it took a bit longer to like them, eventually Bella drew me into their lives and their love. Her writing is pure greatness. Mar 06, Hbeebti rated it liked it Shelves: I liked this book. I didn't love it, but what can ya do.
Anyway this is about Sam a Hotshot firefighter and Dianna. I enjoyed the flashbacks in book. Brought more depth to the book.
I am a HUGE fan of military guys, fireman, policeman and cowboys In the 1st book ,you're not sure if Brett is a good guy or bad one so you change your opinions but don't really get to know him. And all done in true Rosalind James style: Thanks for telling us about the problem. Then you can start reading Kindle books on your smartphone, tablet, or computer - no Kindle device required.
I am not quite sure what it was that didn't make me love it. Maybe just the action for me felt a little flat. I did love the way that Sam and Dianna were together. Their love was put to the test 10 years ago and things went bad. There was a lot of misunderstanding and assumptions about each other. When they finally I liked this book. When they finally give into what they both want it is wonderful. They really had a lot of heat with each other thats for sure. It was interesting to hear what the baddie was thinking some of the time. He wasn't all there. I mean I understand grief and anger but he went way out there.
Then the moments with Dianna's sister April were good too. I really wanted to know what she thought through the whole thing. The ending just felt kinda like it went faster than I would have liked. Overall it was a good book. Not the best I have read but it was a good read. Mar 18, Awilk -never sleeps- rated it liked it Shelves: Hot as Sin was another enjoyable read in he series.
This time around, the story was based a lot more on the romance between the two main characters, Dianna and Sam. We met Sam in the previous book, Wild Heat, but this time we learnt the very sad back story of Dianna and him. It was very touching and tragic, and I must admit that I had tears in my eyes for some of it. It was made very clear from the beginning that these two were still in love with each other, and the sexual tension between them wa Hot as Sin was another enjoyable read in he series. It was made very clear from the beginning that these two were still in love with each other, and the sexual tension between them was off the scales.
The problem with this book was the villian. He was just so over the top. His need for revenge, and the lengths he would go to for it took away my reading pleasure.
I just couldn't buy into it. The romance was more of the story in this one, compared to Wild Heat, and that is never a problem for me. Overall I enjoyed this book, and will be reading the next, about the adorable Conner, Sam's younger brother, sooner rather than later.

Sam and Dianna had been involved 10 years before, but youth led to misunderstandings and Dianna left.
Both had unresolved issues, but neither stopped caring. When Dianna was hurt, Sam had to go to her. Forced to be together they worked out their past and fell in love again. Not that they ever stopped loving each other. Add in some suspense to keep things interesting and it was quite a good book! I wanted more at the end - they had lots of details to work ou Ah, what a nice second chance story! I wanted more at the end - they had lots of details to work out still, but I believed in their HEA anyway!
May 18, Caty rated it liked it Shelves: I don't know why, but this book didn't do it for me. The plot didn't keep me interested and even when I just finished the book I'm having a hard time remembering the names of the characters. After reading the Firefighters from station 5 series , I've been looking for more stories about firefighters, but sadly I haven't found a compelling enough book so far. This wasn't particulary good but it wasn't bad either.
May 25, Marcy rated it really liked it. Hot as Sin, for sure. This is a great series by Bella Andre to check out, especially if you love hot fire fighters, steamy romance and just the right amount of suspense. Sam and Dianna have a heartbreaking history which adds to the angst of their reunion. I loved their chemistry and really rooted for them to open up to each other.
Just enough suspense to keep me on the edge of my seat. I have really enjoyed this series so far and hope for more. Jul 02, Tammy Tracy rated it it was amazing. I love second chances and when Dianna and Sam McKenzie reunite its good. Sam is a hotshot in Tahoe Pines but when he hears his first and only love Dianna was in a terrible car accident he is on his way to CO before he even thinks about it.
He never knew why she left 10 yrs ago. Dianna is trying to find her younger sister and Sam is here to help her. Full of suspense, sexy and steamy read to the end. Mar 17, Serena rated it liked it. This book gets 3. It was good I just keep comparing it to the first in the series it was better in some ways.
It is a slower book the book one. Love that to me their seemed to be more story line and less sex sense.
