Love is overrated and I have the third-degree relationship burns to prove it, courtesy of my ex. I’m done with romance.
Then I meet the world’s funniest, sexiest lady firefighter and all my “staying single” plans go up in smoke.
The problem? Faith’s even more gun shy when it comes to love than I am.
But I have a plan. First, I’ll prove to Faith that she can trust me with her heart.
Next, I’ll keep showing up until she believes it.
In just a few weeks, we’re both falling hard, and I’m positive I’ve found the woman I've been waiting for.
Then my past comes back to haunt me in a way I never imagined possible, putting my future at risk. But I'm not about to give up on forever with Faith, not without one hell of a fight.
Fantastic small town romance!
Lili Valente has been one of my must read authors for years. That, in combination with it being a small town romance, made Catching Fire a definite addition to my reading library. I first met Mick and Faith in book one of this series and was so excited to finally get their story. Ms. Valente definitely delivered another fantastic and entertaining romance.
Mick and Faith live in the small town of Bliss River and have known each other a long time. But after one unexpected kiss which they shared under the Mistletoe at the Fireman’s Ball, neither Mick nor Faith can get that moment out of their minds. Though they both have experiences in their past that they have a hard time overcoming, they ultimately agree to spend time together. But Mick and Faith both agree to keep things simple as neither of them is looking for any kind of a long-term relationship. But the more time they spend together, they both begin to open up to each other which leads Mick and Faith to the realization that the feelings they are sharing go deeper than they ever expected. As their feelings grow stronger, both Mick and Faith realize that the “keep it simple” relationship they initially agreed upon may, in fact, be so much more.
Mick and Faith shared such an intense chemistry and the sparks of love they shared set my kindle ablaze. Catching Fire is a fun and entertaining story of learning to open up and placing your trust in someone which will finally lead your hearts to a love that will last forever.
Although Catching Fire is the second book of this series, it can be read as a standalone. But I guarantee once you read it, you won’t be able to stop there. I love this series and I can’t wait for Maddie and Jamison’s book.
All the Feels
So hot! This is a sweet series, but this one seemed extra steamy to me. And it gave me so many feels. I loved dirty talking Mick, but I adored the strong, heroic Faith. There was plenty of drama, too. Just enough to be a page turner, but without giving you anxiety.
Teddy is always a great narrator, but something about this performance was even more incredible. Lili was amazing as always, but it’s her writing that makes this book so entertaining to read / listen to.
I’m moving to Bliss River, too!
This one is even better than the first!!!! Eeek! I hated to have to put it down to do responsible adult things!
I really truly love a resistant heroine and the hero who swoonily wins her over! I had a goofy smile on my face for this entire book. I started to tear up a couple times. I remarked out loud several times, and one time, I gasped and clutched my pearls and said, "Ohhhh noooo!" But oh yes. It was perfect. And surprising. And amazing. And I can't wait for the next one!
These are stand alone novels in the same world....sharing a world with the Bliss River books, as well! These characters are amazing, and I can picture their small, amazing town. All the friends are fantastic, and I love getting snippets of the HEAs from the previous books!!!
