Jordan Erichsohn suspects something is rotten about his boss, Judge Crawford. Unfortunately he has nowhere to turn and doubts anyone will believe his claims—least of all the handsome deputy, Pierre Ravelle, who has been assigned to protect the judge after he received threatening letters. The judge has a long reach, and if he finds out Jordan’s turned on him, he might impede Jordan adopting his son, Jeremiah.

When Jordan can no longer stay silent, he gathers his courage and tells Pierre what he knows. To his surprise and relief, Pierre believes him, and Jordan finds an ally… and maybe more. Pierre vows to do what it takes to protect Jordan and Jeremiah and see justice done. He’s willing to fight for the man he’s growing to love and the family he’s starting to think of as his own. But Crawford is a powerful and dangerous enemy, and he’s not above ripping apart everything Jordan and Pierre are trying to build in order to save himself….

Fire and Flint is the first book in the Carlisle Deputies series by Andrew Grey. I have enjoyed this author’s writing for some time and when I saw this novel narrated by Greg Tremblay, one of my favourite voice actors, I immediately one clicked. A hunky deputy sheriff, a sweet man in trouble and a gorgeous little boy provided all the ingredients for one of my favourite kind of romances. I was not disappointed. 

Jordan Erichsohn is a sweet hard working young man planning a future career in law and currently in the process of adopting an equally sweet little boy, Jeremiah. Law school has been put on the back burner, as Jordan is determined to make his son his priority, and he finds himself working as an assistant to the powerful, and connected, Judge Crawford. His boss has a reputation for arrogant behaviour, and absolute control, both in and outside of the courtroom. Crawford has made plenty of enemies on both sides of the law and it comes as no real surprise when he begins receiving threatening letters in the mail. Jordan may know more about the motive behind these letters than he is willing to let on, but he needs to keep his head down, and his thoughts to himself, if he is to stay under the Judge’s radar and not jeopardise the adoption process. Crawford is a vindictive man and is certainly not above interfering in that process if it suits his needs 

Deputy sheriff Pierre Ravelle is no friend of Judge Crawford. Being called upon to protect him, whilst trying to find the person behind the letters, is certainly not a job he’s looking forward to. That is until he meets the Judge’s decidedly appealing assistant Jordan. His attraction is immediate, but Pierre has a job to do and that doesn’t include getting distracted by the shy assistant. There’s something about Jordan that brings out Pierre’s protective instincts and when he meets his charming son staying distant and professional proves far harder than he’d imagined. When Jordan begins to act skittish Pierre senses he’s hiding something. Gaining his trust will be essential if he is to protect Jordan and Jeremiah whilst trying to solve the case. The real danger may actually be coming from the person he’s supposed to protect, and getting to the bottom of the case will take all Pierre’s skill and perseverance. 

I loved the MC’s, and the adorable Jeremiah. The chemistry between Jordan and Pierre went from sweet to sizzling over the course of their story. The danger they faced together, as they began to form an adorable family of three, added extra layers and made for a riveting listen. Andrew Grey’s story combined with Greg Tremblay’s flawless performance made this an audiobook I didn’t want to pause until it’s highly satisfying conclusion. Greg captured the essence of all the characters beautifully, creating a world I disappeared into, with characters I could clearly ‘see’ as I listened. I spent an entire day lost in Fire and Flint and have no doubt other listeners would similarly enjoy this story. 
A thoroughly engrossing listen that I have no hesitation in recommending.
