Redemption by Fire (By Fire Series) by Andrew Grey

I was quite surprise to find out that, even if this is a novella length story, it was well developed and I quite enjoyed the evolution of both main characters. Dirk is a good fireman but he is also a troubled man, with a difficult relationship with his father and a clear example of closet case. Dirk is so full of complexity that his whole life is in the closet, not only his sexuality: he has no friends, no close relative, no one. When he is injured on the job, he finds that in the worst way, all alone with no one coming to visit, if not his father and Lee, the new guy on the job. But even Lee is not welcomed, on the contrary, their first encounter is more a clash than a pleasant visit to a colleague.

Lee is able to see beyond Dirk’s fears, and his sullenness, and manages to crash all his barriers. Now Dirk is open to find happiness or being badly hurt.

Truth be told, even if Dirk has a very bad relationship with his father, and on the other hand, the father is a uber-conservative, stuck on fake “Christian” principles, I thought their relationship was not entirely lost. Dirk’s father is for sure a difficult man to deal with, but I think he loves his son, and maybe it will not be easy, but I have the feeling that, on the chance to really loose the son, he would reconsider his principles.
