I love a book with sexy firefighters....
After breaking up with her longtime boyfriend, Julia Woods is ready to start fresh in a new town, a new state. She doesn't want to get involved with another man, and especially not with an adrenalin junkie.
The instant attraction she feels when she meets Stephen McGettis frightens her. She's never experienced something so strong, yet she worries about starting a relationship with him. With his motorcycle racing, whitewater rafting, and skydiving, he's as much of an adrenalin junkie as her former lover.
Stephen loves Julia and doesn't want to lose her because of her concern over what she considers his dangerous pastimes. He has to prove to her he's not a daredevil, and that love is the greatest adventure of all.
Stephen is a sexy as hell, sweet gentlemen who gets one look at Julia and he's lost. I loved his character, he's a hero, he's a gentlemen with pulling chairs out and helping with clean up and he's smitten. Julia left California for a change and when she meets Stephen she can't say no to anything. I liked her character I just felt that yes her ex hurt her but the build up led you to believe it was like a devastating past for her but that part fell a littke flat for me. I did love how the author nailed the sex scenes, they are hot as hell and oh so sexy...wow. I enjoyed getting to know Dolly and Dusty and liked the small town feel and comfort, I just wish it was longer, to quick from start to finish I felt but enjoyed.
In town to visit her grandmother in the hospital, Rayna Holt never expected to run into her ex-husband, Marcus. Seeing him reminds her of all the pain and loss she'd experienced five years ago that led to their divorce.
Marcus is still angry and hurt over Rayna destroying their marriage. They're forced to spend time together while the construction company he works for repairs her grandmother's house due to a fire. Old desires smolder beneath the surface, but Marcus is leery of giving in to them. Rayna broke his heart when she left him. He can't live through that kind of pain again.
Both Rayna and Marcus have to let go of the past before they can forgive each other and fall in love again.
Lovin me some Marcus that's for sure. I wanted to know what happened to his heart, why his ex wife broke it and why he couldn't move on. I won't ruin the story by saying too much there's a lot to say...I'm just in awe of Marcus he's a hero in my book, Rayna regrets many things but most if all breaking Marcus's heart, being hurtful and leaving him so when she's back to her Nana hearts break then mend and sexy is out if this world hot...Marcus sure knows us way around Rayna, god he's sexy. Love Nana's hope and love for nth Rayna and Marcus and them bing happy. A lot going on, hot sex, fond memories, hurt, sadness and crushing grief but also love and forgiveness. A awe story...
Talia King has loved Dylan Westfield ever since the day she met him two years ago, but he treats her as nothing but a friend. Every attempt she's made to date him or spend more time with him has been shot down by Dylan.
Dylan loves Talia as much as she loves him, but his painful past won't let him surrender to that love. Fear of physically hurting her keeps him alone and aching for a life with her…a life he knows he cannot have.
A night of passion convinces Talia that she and Dylan are perfect together. Dylan admits his love to Talia, but tells her it doesn't matter since they can never be together.
Talia hatches a plan to convince Dylan that she knows he would never hurt her. It might backfire, but she believes it's worth the risk to be with the man she loves.
Talia and Dylan both have eyes for each other, Talia goes out on a limb and asks Dylan out but something is holding him back and he turns her down. I liked this story, the sex was hot as hell and a tad bit kinky and oh yeh hot as hell...lol...but just felt the end was a little bit of a let down with how Talia got Dylan to recognize he needs her. I did like the coming together of all their friends at the picnic and how the girls let loose. I love the calendar idea I wish it was a show and tell so I could see the hotness..lol sweet story.
I enjoyed each story and loved the characters and thought the author wrote a very sexy series of stories. 4 stars
