Wildfire by Hannah Grace
My rating: 4/5
Publisher: Simon & Schuster 
Publication date: 3rd October 2023

When Russ and Aurora cross paths at a university party, a drinking game ends with them spending the night together. The next day, Aurora slips away before Russ learns her full name. 

This anonymity ends when they both turn up to their first day of work as camp counsellors. A job they had both chosen to escape Maple Hills for the summer. 

Given their history, there’s still an obvious tension between the two but the camp has a strict “no staff fraternizing” rule. Russ doesn’t want to risk heading home early but Aurora has never been one for rules.  

As things heat up, they'll have to resist or risk starting something they just can’t stop.   

As soon as I read Icebreaker, I instantly pre-ordered Wildfire. As it was the second in the Maple Hills series, I was excited for the crossover in characters.

Russ Callaghan is the goalie of the UCMH hockey team and meets Aurora Roberts. After the two have a one-night-stand at an end of year party, they are thrown together again when they realise that they are both volunteer counselors at a kids summer camp.

The majority of the story takes place throughout the course of the summer and focuses on their developing relationship. When I read Icebreaker, I said that the plot was thin but spice was fantastic. In Wildfire, I felt that the plot was better, with a little less (but still very good) spice. 

I really enjoyed the characters of Russ and Aurora, their familial issues and seeing Russ's confidence grow. I know everyone wants a Henry book but I feel like I want a JJ one because he is a fantastic friend!
