Reckless by Kimberly Kincaid

Book Description

Someone’s Bound To Get Burned…

Zoe Westin may be a fire captain’s daughter, but feeding the people in her hometown of Fairview is her number one priority. Running a soup kitchen is also the perfect way to prove to her dad that helping people doesn’t always mean risking life and limb. But when she's saddled with a gorgeous firefighter doing community service after yet another daredevil stunt, the kitchen has never been so hot. 

Alex Donovan thrives on adrenaline, and stirring a pot of soup doesn’t exactly qualify. He’s not an expert at following the rules either, not even when they come from the stubborn, sexy daughter of the man who's not only his boss, but his mentor. Determined to show Zoe that not every risk ends in catastrophe, Alex challenges her both in the kitchen and out. One reckless step leads to another, but will falling for each other be a risk worth taking, or will it just get them burned?

Reckless is the first book in Kimberly Kincaid's new Rescue Squad series.  This is my first book by Kimberly Kincaid and it certainly won't be my last.  She was about to write a very sweet and sexy story about learning to trust your instincts and that it is life is all about taking risks.  Reckless is an opposite attracts story with a daredevil firefighter and a cautious chef.

Firefighter Alex Donovan is an adrenaline junkie.  That is part of the reason he became a firefighter (aside from wanting to help people).  He learned early in life that you have to live life to the fullest and he doesn't want to regret missing out on anything.  And while that philosophy might work in his personal life, it always seems to get him in trouble at work.  When a situation with another station house caption lands him in trouble, he has two choices: do four weeks full-time community service or lose his job. 

The last thing Zoe Westin needs is another "volunteer" that won't pull their weight at her soup kitchen.  She is already low on funding and doesn't have the time or man-power to babysit an adult.  She's also out to prove to her father (Alex's boss!!) that she made the right decision by leaving a high-end restaurant in D.C. to start her soup kitchen back home and to show that you don't have to put yourself at risk to help people.  When she realizes that none other than Alex Donovan is her new "volunteer" for the next for weeks, she knows that he is going be trouble in more ways then one.

The longer that Alex and Zoe work together, the more they learn from each other.  Zoe learns that it is okay to take risks in life and Alex learns that some rules are worth following.

I really enjoyed these characters and how much they grew as people.  I look forward to reading more from Ms. Kincaid and more of this series.
