Debuting 2018 - the new Steele Ridge: The Kingstons series.
Fire in one hand, ashes in the other
Studious tutor Emmy McKay fell in love with Cash Kingston over a biology textbook, never expecting the high school football hero to give her a second thought. But his feelings for her burned just as hot. All too soon, Emmy’s choices destroyed their youthful relationship, reducing it to a pile of ash. Years later, she has landed her dream job as an ER doctor in her hometown. Now it’s time to win back her dream man.
As a firefighter and tactical medic, Cash Kingston is no stranger to white-knuckle situations. But when he learns his beautiful—and brilliant—ex-girlfriend has returned to Steele Ridge, he feels as if he’s standing on the roof of a blazing building. With no escape route in sight. Emmy is the only woman who’s ever had the power to build him up one minute and burn him down the next.
But when someone targets Emmy and they begin to suspect the danger stems from their past relationship, it’s impossible for Cash to stay detached. Will the struggle to untangle a web of half-truths bring them closer together, or will it tear them apart for good?

It was just out of reach. Some parts had huge potential to scorch you but never got there. While the rekindling for Cash and Emerson is a great story it was not very hot or gripping for contemporary. Could have been. When Emerson came home and her ex stalked her...turned out to be hugely anticlimactic, Oliver just sorta fades into the background he could have taken the story to an entirely different level ~gripping!! Then the fire, the brick, the school hostages while they peaked your interest for a chapter just never went anywhere. It is a nice slow read without many grab ya scenes...so if you like steady and flat this is for you. If you want grab ya and pull ya in reading then try another. Would love Cash and Emerson to combust together in a truly scorching story!!
