Title: Lit Fuse
When Chase Fisk enrolled in the United States Army, it was mostly to escape a dead- end job working with his alcoholic father. The military provided him with a sense of belonging, and his brothers in arms became the family he never thought he’d have. He’s ready to embrace his promotion to Commanding Officer over a group of new explosive tech recruits—but he isn’t ready for her.
Vivian Brooks grew up in a military family and is unlike any woman Chase has ever met. The recently enlisted recruit is beautiful, tenacious, and as steady with her hands as any EOD technician he’s ever seen. She tempts him in every way possible, challenging him at all turns and taunting him with a body that haunts his waking moments and most of his sleeping ones. But as their forbidden romance could threaten their careers if it’s discovered, Vivian’s buried secrets threaten to destroy them both.

Holy Mother of WHAT???!!!!! Wow, just wow. I’m still trying to pick my mouth off the floor, so please excuse me if I start rambling. WOOOOOOOW!!!! Ok, Ok. I’ll at least try to write a review for this one..
What a way to start a series. I mean, usually in a prequel, we’re just learning about some characters and getting to know a little about what the series might be about. This? THIS!!! This has everything you’ll ever ask for in a novel wrapped up in to a perfectly packaged prequel. And to say that I’m ready for the rest of this series is a HUGE understatement.
Chase is a Corporal for the US Army. He’s also completely goo goo gah gah gorgeous, with the southern gentlemen flare. Can you say, heeeeellllo. While out with the boys, he meets a bombshell who catches more than just his eye. After finally convincing her to let her guard down a little, it looks like that one night stand is on. But when the next morning roles around, it turns out that its anything but a one night stand. And his job just became a lot more difficult.
Viv is the redheaded bombshell. She’s also in for the surprise of her life when she walks in to her training class and realizes that her trainer is her CO and her amazing one night stand. Oops. Dang it. Things just got real. But during the eleven week course, the chemistry between the two becomes more than either of them can handle.
This was a great prequel in terms of getting to know not only the main characters, but support characters as well. I was completely pulled in to the battle over being with each other and was obviously pulling for the HEA. And just when that HEA is happening…we’re totally blindsided by an event (and total freakin tease BTW) that was the cause of my mouth hanging open. Side note – the title of this is PERFECT!!!!!!!!! I’m already watching the calendar so that I can get my hands on the next one. Eeekkkkk!!!!!
