Knitted together by our hurt and hope.
Santa Barbara firefighter Liam Knight is king of the one-night stand. Dylan, the gorgeous twink working in the craft store below his apartment, is supposed to be just that: a hookup. But Liam wants to protect Dylan from anyone taking advantage of him, and it fuels the spark growing between them.
Dylan Waters is poised to fall hard—and not just for hunky Liam from his knitting PTSD support group. He's juggling jobs, a college transfer, and panic attacks that his mother's alternative medicine won't fix. He can help others, but he's never managed to accept help himself.
They're both hiding from their pasts, but the closer they grow, the less room there is to run. When it all goes up in smoke, can they save each other—and the relationship that could make them both believe in love?
Afterburn is the first book in the After series, which explores mental health challenges with gentle humor and heart while hunky firefighters turn up the heat. It can be enjoyed on its own, and promises a happily-ever-after.
