Consumed (Firefighters, #1) by J.R. Ward

From the #1 New York Times bestselling author of the popular Black Dagger Brotherhood series comes a brand-new novel about arson investigator, Ann Ashburn, who is consumed by her troubled past, her family's scorched legacy, and her current case: chasing a deadly killer.
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 . . .

What an intense read! Wow! Ms. Ward knows how to pull you into a story and showcase all the characters in this book and she will have you invested until the very end. 
Anne Ashburn is a female firefighter. She works in a world where it's usually dominated by men, but that doesn't stop her. She's also has a crush on her one-time hook and fellow firefighter, Danny McGuire. Danny is known as the rule breaker when it comes to his job. He is willing to risk everything when it comes to saving lives and also saving Anne. But on one fiery night on the job, it changed both of their lives forever!

Anne is recovering from an accident and starting a new life and new career as an arson investigator. And Danny is recovering from his injury and guilt. But they both come together and figure out who is behind the trouble in their city. And it's not easy when these two comfort their feelings for each other. 
Consumed is an thrilling story about the men and women who are courageous enough to fight the fire and save lives. The mystery and twists of this story had me on the edge. A fantastic read and looking forward to more.
