Title: Lost In The Fire
Author Name & Publisher: Draven St. James (Loose Id)
Publication Date & Length: September 22, 2015 – 56,000 Words


Aaron Evans embodies every complication Wren Tucker knows he doesn’t need. The tempting go-go dancer refuses to leave him alone and his attempts to get into Wren’s bunker pants don’t stop at the club, even the walls of the Firehouse aren’t safe. Wren’s control is only so strong, and his desire for Aaron is turning into a clawing need that’s digging through the many reasons keeping Aaron at bay.

Aaron is two cold showers away from hypothermia if the hot fireman of his dreams won’t give in to the lust Aaron sees blazing in Wren’s eyes. The only issue is, Wren is a forever man, and Aaron doesn’t have that in him to give, not with so many secrets locked behind the glitter and gold of his beautiful world.

As Wren begins to cave to Aaron’s delicious demands, he gets a deeper view of the tarnished landscape Aaron exists in. A murky pit of drug addiction that’s slowly dragging Aaron under, and Wren is going to have to fight like hell to save Aaron from it, to even have a chance at a new beginning with the man who has brought him out of the shadows.



Wren, the strong silent type is all alpha and broody when it comes to denying himself the one guy who has caught his attention. Having lost someone close to him before, Wren was a little gun shy. However, when Aaron is in trouble, Wren is going to stand by him no matter what. Their relationship is one built off of trust, kindness, love and steamy, yummy chemistry.

Then you have Aaron. He is floundering a bit in his life, but knows that he wants Wren. Despite numerous attempts he is a little flummoxed by Wrens dismissals.

At his worst, Aaron allows himself to believe in both his friend and himself.

This story was about both men finding their happy place, allowing those around them to help them and learning to love.

I felt that the supporting characters were just as important. They helped shape the story, threw in some humor and were just very genuine.



This book was about Aaron the go-go dancer and Wren the Firefighter.
To get through is job and his life Aaron used drugs a lot.  What I really liked about his character was his wiliness to get help for himself and realizing what he was doing was not right.  He has a crush on Wren but does not understand why Wren keeps his distance.  One thing leads to another and they eventually connect.  That is when Aaron realizes Wren was who he needs to help him.  Aaron definitely goes through a lot in this book and I was so happy to see him come through the other side in such a better place with himself.
Wren was so sweet and caring with Aaron.  Wren has suffered loss and physicals scars which makes him afraid to start anything with Aaron.  I really loved Wren’s character.  He is so strong for going through what he has and also putting himself out there to help Aaron.
There was a moment I was not a fan of Aaron after something he says to Wren that was so hurtful.. But he redeemed himself by the end by doing a complete one eighty with his attitude.
All together I really liked this book!
I would definitely recommend this book!


“One of these days, Wren Tucker…” Aaron turned to his side, pillowing his head with his bent arm. His eyes slid closed, and he murmured, “I’m going to get to you.”

You already do. Wren crouched beside the bed. The first time Wren had seen him, Aaron had been dancing. The light from the club had touched on every toned dip and groove of Aaron’s body as it swiveled on the raised stage, his tight ass shaking with the beat of the music. All of that had been amazing, but it had been Aaron’s face that had captivated him—the free expression, like he was in another world. His full lips mouthing the lyrics, his head thrown back, and the locks of his black hair waving around his flushed face.

In that moment of abandon, Aaron had met Wren’s gaze, a smile tugging at the corner of his sensual mouth. Aaron had continued the dance, but he hadn’t stopped focusing on Wren.
