New Release ~ Consumed by J.R. Ward

Anne Ashburn is a woman consumed...

By her bitter family legacy, by her scorched career as a firefighter, by her obsession with department bad-boy Danny McGuire, and by a new case that pits her against a fiery killer.

Strong-willed Anne was fearless and loved the thrill of fighting fires, pushing herself to be the best. But when one risky decision at a warehouse fire changes her life forever, Anne must reinvent not only her job, but her whole self.

Shattered and demoralized, Anne finds her new career as an arson investigator a pale substitute for the adrenaline-fueled life she left behind. She doesn't believe she will ever feel that same all-consuming passion for her job again--until she encounters a string of suspicious fires setting her beloved city ablaze.

Danny McGuire is a premiere fireman, best in the county, but in the midst of a personal meltdown. Danny is taking risks like never before and seems to have a death wish until he teams up with Anne to find the fire starter. But Danny may be more than a distraction, and as Anne narrows in on her target, the arsonist begins to target her.

From the creator of the bestselling Black Dagger Brotherhood, get ready for a new band of brothers. And a firestorm.

I have to admit this is the first JR Ward book I've ever read.  And I'm not really sure how I feel about it.  I don't know if the writing style is 'normal' or if this is an anomaly...

What I liked...the premise of the story.  the action.  the unapologetic treatment of the characters situations...

What I didn't like...the overly descriptive style, the lack of dialogue, the way the ending felt forced...

I was pretty meh about the characters - didn't love them or hate them.  Nothing leaves me itching for the next book in the series, but I m curious about what might develop so I'll probably give book 2 a try.
