Taima, a.k.a. Tai, is the last person people come to for help. He’s the fuck up… the bad boy… the guy that only looks out for himself. Which couldn’t be further from the truth. He’s fought hard to become the man he is today. He’s a hero in the public’s eye. A firefighter that the young all the way to the old turn to for help at the lowest point in their lives. What people don’t know, though, is that he’s no hero. He’s the reason his sister is dead, and he’ll spend the rest of his life trying to right that wrong. Then one split second decision has him coming face to face with Mia Darling. The woman changes his life, making him reevaluate everything he thought he had figured out, and showing him the tenderness he never knew he needed. Just like always, though, his luck runs out. When the smoke settles, Mia’s gone, and Tai realizes there’s no way he can live the rest of his life without her. He’ll show her just how hard a bad boy will fight to get his woman back, and he’s not opposed to fighting dirty.

Review :

From its Title “Shock Advised” by Lani Lynn Vale seems to be the first book in a new series called “Kilgore Fire” but during reading the story I felt at times that there was some information missing for me, which leads to my assumption that characters from this series must have been mentioned in previous books. But as this is my first book by this author I can not be sure. T

he writing of this author is flawless and fluent so reading was quite enjoyable.
What follows next is the hard part – explaining why I really did not like where the plotline went – without spoilering it for others that plan on reading it. To be fair the blurb sounded really interesting that is why I choose to read the book, but the actual story starts off quite differently with subjects that are not only a trigger to me but also are used in such a casual way that I can totally not come up with any feelings for the characters afterwards. I was left with a nagging feeling throughout the whole book and an instant dislike to both characters.
So let me just say – when you have no problems with the reasons why Tai and Mia meet and what happens shortly – basically at their first “Thing” together (And I mean not the reasons for it but the way they act during it) – than you are probably good to read and enjoy the book.
So this is only my very personal feeling and there is a good possibility that a lot of other readers might enjoy this book.
