Burnished by Fire by Andrew Grey
Burnished by Fire, Andrew Grey, Dreamspinner Press
By Fire #3
Firefighters Lee Stanton and Dirk Krause need a vacation. Work seems to have other ideas: they spend the day before their holiday begins battling a fire that claims three lives. Thankfully, Lee and Dirk will have a whole week on the high seas to recover.
They’re having a wonderful time—until they spot Dirk’s miserable, closed-minded father on the ship. Between his father’s presence and his guilt over the lives he couldn’t save, Dirk feels sure his romantic cruise is going to tank. But then he saves another passenger’s life—and maybe he can salvage something else too.
Dirk and Lee are finally getting some down time. Their first vacation together is just what the two firefighters need after all the drama at the fire house. Unfortunately Dirk's homophobic father just happens to be on the cruise as well which adds tension and brings out Dirk's inner asshole.
Again I have to say that Lee is a saint, he not only brings Dirk out of his funk cause by a fire that didn't quite go as they would have hoped but he also helps Dirk deal with his father and the drama that that relationship brings.
This was a nice ending to Dirk and Lee's story and showed how much each character had grown over the three book arc, especially Dirk. The only thing that was missing was tying up the story line about which fire house would stay open, other than that this was a great trilogy if you are looking for a quick read about some scorching hot firemen!
