From USA Today and WSJ Bestselling author Laramie Briscoe comes the next book in the Bradford Station Series!
The heat is on.
Situated on the Tennessee and North Carolina border, this town is nothing like you’ve ever experienced. Hot guys, the women they love, and a town worth saving. Bradford, TN is the epicenter of the next great romance dynasty.
Firefighters, family, and community…
I take my job very seriously. Both of them. I'm a Lieutenant at Bradford Station Company One, and I'm a single dad to a little girl who completely brightens my world.
It's not easy, holding it all together, but I do my best. Honestly, I wouldn't be doing as well as I am without my best friend's sister. Natalie treats my daughter like her own, and watches her for me without complaint.
Things are status quo until one day I see her in a different light. She quits being the babysitter, and becomes a woman. One I'll do anything for.
When her brother finds out all bets are off, and I have to answer for my indiscretions. He and I are sent out on a mission to find a lost child in the woods. We have to bury the hatchet and do our jobs, but when the worst happens, we have to make a decision that neither of us ever imagined.
Natalie and Cameron are literally so cute :3 This book is such a simple quick read such a heartwarming book, to Natalie caring for Trinity from when she was little to becoming her mom <3. Cameron has already been through a lot and for him to go through having to raise a daughter on his own I can't even imagine how alone he must've felt. Favorite scene hands down had to of been when Trinity called Natalie her mom for the first time. I'd love to see what their future has in store for them, maybe a sibling for Trinity 👀
Single dad firefighter
Book two in the Bradford Station series features Cameron, a single dad firefighter and Natalie, a family friend who is now nanny to Cam's little girl. Natalie is younger than Cameron, plus his best friend's little sister, so we've got a lot of tropes going on in one story.
This isn't a bad thing by any means. I love Natalie and her relationship with Trinity, who's been lacking a mother figure most of her life. Natalie fills that, while always being cognizant of the fact that she and Cam are just friends...although she's always dreamed of more.
Cameron finally sees her in the same light, but he's also shackled by loyalty to her brother, and he's never risking a relationship again. That, of course, changes, and they do embark on at least a physical connection at first. Naturally, someone comes along to pop that bubble and strife ensues.
I liked this storyline and the characters, especially Natalie. It was well written and kept me engaged and turning pages while I read it in one sitting. As a longtime reader of romance, nothing is going to "surprise" you about the plot, but it will definitely keep you entertained. I love these kinds of stories because while there's drama, it's not so angst-filled that it's a constant roller coaster ride. Both types have their place and my ereader is filled with them all. Combust was the right book at the right time for me. I'll be back for book three...and any other Laramie Briscoe book she's working on. She quickly became a must-read author for me.
Cameron is a single father and Lieutenant at Bradford Station Company One. His wife divorced him and gave up her parental rights when Trinity was three.
Natalie spent her time while in school on her softball skills wanting to play in the Olympics. She has watched Trinity since she was three and has loved her ever since.
This has insecurities, disappointment, family, drama and of course sizzling hot romance. Well written storyline with characters that will pull at your heartstrings. I loved this addition to the Bradford Station series.
