As Station Seventeen’s rookie, Luke Slater knows his fire and EMS training will be both rigorous and risky, but he never imagined having to partner up with the one woman he wants to keep at arm’s length most of all. Quinn Copeland is as wide-open as Luke is reserved. He has no interest in letting the sweet and sexy paramedic rock his hard-earned control. But the need for composure becomes the need to survive when they find themselves in the crosshairs of a brutal gang leader on their first shift together.
Paramedic Quinn Copeland’s station mates aren’t just her friends. They’re her family. She’d do anything to keep them safe—including reluctantly trusting her impossible-to-read, impossibly gorgeous new partner with the one thing she holds close. As the passion between Luke and Quinn goes from a slow burn to a sizzle, their steps grow more and more dangerous, both in the fire house and out. Can they outwit a cold-blooded killer and face the fears that could cost them everything? Or are they in too deep?
I was thrilled to be getting the next Station Seventeen book. So far, Kimberly Kincaid impressed me with her writing skills, her knowledge of the profession and with the way she writes romantic suspense. Yes, there were some liberties taken with protocol but, it was for the best. Sometimes you have to overlook something for the greater good. But, I wasn’t the least bit surprised that In Too Deep impressed me in the same way that Skin Deep and Deep Burn did.
I loved Luke and Quinn’s story. They had, not only a love of helping people, but an appreciation and commitment for the job that totally impressed me. Even when things went FUBAR, their first concern was helping the patient … dedication – and that showed throughout the story.
Luke and Quinn handled their situation in their own ways. Luke was a loner, he kept things close to the vest, his job was to protect and serve, not let anyone get to close and to make sure Quinn made it through this ordeal. Quinn was open, loving, had a bevy of friends and her first concern was protecting the family that she loves. She wasn’t handling having a killer stalk and threaten her and Luke and those close to them. But, Luke soothes her, calms her and she can’t fight the attraction that she feels for him. She also can’t believe that he chose her to finally open up to, show her the side of himself that he kept hidden and admit his feelings. When they do come together, it’s explosive and the love that they have been denying themselves shines through.
Luke and Quinn were surrounded by so much love. The Station Seventeen crew couldn’t be more supportive and concerned once they found out what was going on. Luke’s family was wonderful – I loved Momma Billie and Hayley. They were strong, independent woman who loved Luke fiercely and didn’t fold when trouble came knocking at their door. Who would have thought that it would be Hayley that saved the day?
Kimberly Kincaid wrote a beautiful romantic suspense. She showed us how wonderful things could be if you open up and trust the people around you to have your six. She didn’t let the action slow down and she made us feel the pain, suffering, concern and love that both Luke and Quinn were dealing with. It was wonderful how she made sure we understood their feeling and why they had them. Quinn was written as an unstoppable woman who was determined to overcome her fear. And, Ms. Kincaid did an amazing job of bringing Luke out of his shell and showing us the true man that he was. I was honored to read and review this story and am looking forward to more from everyone at Station Seventeen.
