Taber Delane is lucky to be alive, but his career as a firefighter ended the day a beam snapped, resulting in a crushing spinal injury. Most of his friends are willing to give him space, everyone except paramedic, Deacon Hall.
Deacon hasn’t met a challenge he couldn’t tackle and he knows Taber needs someone in his corner who isn’t afraid to stand up to the big bad fireman. The longer he’s around Taber, the more the sexy vulnerability of the man comes through. Deacon finds he doesn’t just want to be Taber’s live-in caregiver, he wants a chance at the passionate man beneath the stubborn shell.
A shell that is cracking, no matter how Taber tries to hold it together. Deacon being in his home starts to open him up—and open his eyes to the man Deacon hides from the rest of the world. Without seeing it coming, Taber soon craves more. A lot more.
Now if only Deacon can get Taber to see that it isn’t so bad having him there to assist. Even if and maybe especially when Taber is naked, dripping wet, and angry as hell.
“You’re not giving me a sponge bath,” Taber snapped and glowered at Deacon as he wheeled himself into the locker bay. The sweat ran down his temples, his shirt soaked through with it. He took in his motionless legs and grimaced before shooting Deacon another irritated look.
Deacon sat with his feet on one of the peeling dark blue benches, his back reclined against a bank of gray lockers along the far wall in the physical therapy building. A book was balanced on his knees, and black-rimmed glasses perched on his nose. His shaggy auburn hair fell to curl around his ears in disarray.
Deacon peered at him with pale green eyes. “There go my dreams of rubbing you down and tweeting the pics.”

I always fall for caregiver-turned-lover type books. Not only does Driven by Fire have this, but it also had a grouchy fireman and a compassionate paramedic. What wasn’t to love?
Taber was injured on a fire call with Firehouse 6. By time he was pulled from the burning structure, a beam had fallen on him causing a life changing injury. Taber suffered paralysis and was now confined to a wheelchair. He was awaiting tests that would determine if he’d ever get out of the wheelchair. What would his fate be?
Tired of being in the chair, out of work as a fireman and avoiding handsy home care nurses, Deacon becomes his new caregiver. Deacon, the hot firehouse paramedic. Taber isn’t sure this is a great idea, more for the fact he doesn’t want someone telling all the guys from work his failures.
Deacon is so different from what Taber expected. He treats him the same as he did prior to the accident. That’s something Taber has missed from others post accident. Deacon is compassionate but gives Taber the space he needs to feel useful and competent. As they’re maneuvering around the new living arrangement, the two men discover they’re attraction to each other can no longer be ignored. Deacon is happy to let Taber take control, but when Taber manages to let go and give up to Deacon, there is no fire that burns hotter.
This story is a great choice if you want a standalone or want to start into a new series. The secondary characters are entertaining and either have their own book or the potential for it. More fireman, ummmm…. yes! I believe Aaron’s book will be next and I couldn’t be more thrilled! Draven St. James had some clever uses for powdered sugar in Driven by Fire, I can only imagine what Aaron could get up to with…..
