Blurb: When it comes to love, Kevin Foster can’t seem to win. Some consider him a hero, but dousing an arsonist’s attempt to burn Bronco’s to the ground puts Kevin on the vengeful criminal’s radar. Afterward, the arsonist fixates on Kevin, determined to burn away every part of Kevin’s life.
Coming to Kevin’s rescue more than once, and in more ways than one, is “MacDreamy Hotness”—firefighter Angus MacTavish. Not only is Angus smitten at first sight, he learns Kevin’s nickname for him, intriguing him further.
When Angus discovers Kevin is the arsonist’s target, he takes it upon himself to protect him at any cost. Soon Kevin works his way into a heart Angus thought he’d closed off for good. Things heat up between them, but the arsonist has no intention of letting Kevin finally find happiness. Hopefully Angus and Kevin can stop him before he reduces everything Kevin values to ash—including the love igniting between him and Angus.
Review: When a fire breaks out at Bronco’s, Kevin Foster meets Angus MacTavish, a hunky firefighter. They seem to hit it off pretty well and eventually, have a chance to go out on a date. Angus has a bit of a problem, though. He gets defensive and uses it as a tool to push people away, but Kevin stands up to Angus and puts him in his place.
Besides the danger of fires and a crazed arsonist, both Kevin and Angus have to deal with the issue of “who will leave who first?” Kevin has to decide what to do about his ex, who wants him back. Then there’s guilt over the loss of a friend, while Kevin is also trying to put his life back together.
Round and Round is the final book in the Bronco’s Boys series, and I found that I had a totally different impression of Kevin than I’d had about him throughout the series. I thought of Kevin as a playboy, but he really isn’t. Andrew Grey put Kevin in a whole different light for me. He’s smart, caring, loves to flirt and has a great sense of humor. When there’s trouble, he goes above and beyond without thinking of putting himself in danger. He’s loyal to his long-standing friends: Zach, Jeremy and Tristan. In the boyfriend department, things haven’t gone so well for Kevin—it seems he gets left behind a lot. He’s self-conscious and his self-esteem is a little low at times, and he envies his best friends for the love they have found.
Andrew Grey created a fitting end to this series with Kevin’s story. He built Round and Round with suspense, danger, loss and love, and with everlasting friendships and new beginnings. I hated to have the series end, but Mr. Grey is planning on a spinoff that takes us into Angus’s world of firefighters, so we still may get a chance to see the boys now and then. And, a special shout-out to L.C. Chase for all the easy-on-the-eyes covers!
