SYNOPSIS

Firefighter Jackson Donovan doesn’t look back–as a rule. So when his past comes roaring back to life in the form of not-so-damsel-in-distress Becks Benning, the last thing he wants to do is relive old times.

No matter how tempting she makes it seem…

Now thanks to his two interfering brothers, Becks is living with them while she looks for a new place and tries to pick up the pieces of her tattoo business that went up in flames. Which means a grown up, smokin’ hot Becks is in his house, sharing meals, and digging up old wounds. And despite his better judgement, the more time he spends with this smart, artistic, incredible woman the more he wants her in his bed–and his future.

Becks always had it bad for Jackson. Unfortunately for her, not much has changed–he’s still honorable, hard-working, sexy as sin–and closed off. But there’s more than one way to get to a man’s heart and if Jackson doesn’t want to recall old memories, she’ll just have to help him make new ones. Because now that she’s found Jackson again, she’s not letting him go.

REVIEW

I AM HERE FOR IT!

Seriously, hot firefighting brothers that had a rough beginning in childhood, you are speaking my language. I love reading about characters that have struggled, but succeeded despite the odds. It is really interesting to see the struggle to connect as an adult, because of the lasting impact of childhood adversity. I think Jaci Burton did a wonderful job, showing this struggle in a realistic way. I really enjoy the dark parts of characters, especially when they embrace them and grow. The compassion of the characters in this story is so special. Becks is a little spitfire with her own strengths and insecurities. Jackson is avoiding his past, and we all know that won’t make it go away. This is a journey of healing and finding love, and I adored every second of it! I cannot wait for Rafe and Kal’s stories.

Thanks to the First to Read program for the eARC in exchange for a honest review.
