Sasha comes from a family of firefighters. However, when she loses a family member to a tragic fire, she knows that she’s not strong enough to love another firefighter and risk losing someone else.

Jack has always loved Sasha and loved being a firefighter. But when his best friend is lost to a fire, he doesn’t realize that he’ll lose Sasha too. Despite losing her, he knows that he’s supposed to be a firefighter.

Years later, when Sasha and Jack see each other again, their chemistry is still there. But after years of hiding and trying to survive, Sasha and Jack have to decide whether or not they have grown enough to try their love again. With someone around their small town setting fires, an old flame popping up and causing trouble, and old insecurities creeping up, they will have to fight to figure out if they can love each other again.

This left you feeling like they were going to try again for a relationship, but with unanswered questions looming over them and the town, it’s a wonder whether or not they will make it. I am looking forward to the next book and hope that questions left hanging will be answered.

Mary Jo☆☆☆☆
The reality of having a loved one work in a dangerous profession is something that some families know nothing about and others, all too much.

Having a spouse, brother, sister, mother, or father work as a law enforcement officer, a firefighter, or an EMT is both a source of pride and a silent fear. When the worst happens, it takes more than a day, a month, and sometimes years, for the person grieving to realize that the sacrifice of their loved one was made freely. The person running toward the danger is a hero both in life and in death.

Sasha's grief over the loss of her brother was compounded by the fact that a) she was dating his best friend – also a firefighter, and b) she saw the grief that her sister-in-law faced. Deciding that she couldn't be the person who waited for the call, she not only left Jack, she left town.

Jack knows why Sasha left. Jack's own demons haunt him day and night. The "could haves" tear him up inside and only the thought of Sasha gives him peace.

Jack and Sasha have many issues to overcome, yet they are determined to give love another try.
