While Heat Exchange is well written, it seems that none of the book's characters have ever heard of establishing personal boundaries. Lydia loved working in her father's Boston pub, yet moved out of state after getting divorced from a fireman because she couldn't negotiate a mature working relationship with her retired fireman father.
Lydia returned home temporarily to help out at the pub when her sister who was having marital problems. When Lydia becomes attracted to her younger brother's best friend Aidan (fireman), they lie to everyone, fearing that Lydia's family and other firemen will not accept their relationship. Really? Are these people still in high school?
Aida gets grief from his rich & snotty family, but continues to go back for more. Lydia's brother-in-law (another fireman) still takes crap from his abusive parents, creating distance from his wife. While these brave firemen would risk their lives for strangers, they were such emotional babies, afraid of expressing feelings or demanding respect from family and co-workers.
This book may appeal to teens and young adults, but I wanted to slap them all silly and tell them to grow the hell up.
