Andreas Sullivan learns that promotion in the fire department comes with its downside when the chief assigns him to settling in their new man and reputed adrenaline junkie, Bobby Ford. However, Bobby proves himself a good addition to the team and makes no secret about his attraction to Andreas.
Early in his career, Andreas had a relationship with another fireman that went sour after he was injured in a call. Since then, he has avoided serious entanglement both on the job and off. But Bobby is persistent and Andreas finds himself falling hard and fast. Once burned, Andreas holds back until a close call makes him reevaluate things.
