How have I not read a Shannon Stacey book since February? Unacceptable! Her books are just so fun to read.
Lydia Kincaid is a bit prickly, but with good reason. She’s actually a very warm and loving person. That’s what makes her prickly since she has her heart invested in people who risk their lives every day. The problem is that most people around her don’t even see how much she bends over backward to be there for them all. They just see her as being pig-headed and stubborn.
I loved that Aidan hadn’t been waiting around mooning over Lydia for years. Although they knew each other for years they were on different paths. This time that Lydia goes home the stars happen to align and the fireworks happen. And once those fuses are lit there is no going back. Aidan and Lydia are combustible together. Plus, there is a level of comfort that comes off the page when the main characters are together.
There were quite a few smoking hot firemen we meet in this story and I can’t wait to read about all of them. But I also think Aidan will hold a special place in my heart. Despite his family he followed his heart to become a firefighter. He does the job because it’s who he is and his selflessness is charming, to say the least. If the chemistry is as good in the other books as it is here I’ll be beyond pleased.
