Stand-alone Hope Falls romance, complete with HEA--and plenty of heat and heart along the way!
That was all it took for Gabe Maguire to realize something was missing in his life. After beating cancer and returning to the cage to claim victory in the octagon, Gabe was ready to settle into his life in Hope Falls as a firefighter. The sexy MMA champion was grateful to be alive but still felt like he was just going through the motions until he laid eyes on her.
That was what Adriana Hale was determined to keep. As a young, single mother raising her twin girls and her late cousin’s son, Adriana was willing to sacrifice anything for her kids, including her heart.
That was what brought them together, but could it also be what would tear them apart. After realizing a connection that will change everything, will Adriana and Gabe find the happiness and love they both deserve or will fate have other plans for them?

Short but cute
This was a great book I only wish it had more backstory and was a tiny bit longer
Tear jerker that will make your heart and your soul happy.
Adriana is a woman who has been dealt nothing but tough breaks in her life time. She has only had herself to rely on while raising her kids and growing her business. Gabe has been knocked down a bit by life but he is fighting his way back so when life puts Adriana in his path he is in fighting shape to win her heart.
I loved this book so much! Adriana’s story really pulls at your heart strings. But she is such a strong capable woman that you are also rooting for her the entire book. Gabe is the only person who would understand Adriana’s need to hold back on leaning on someone else but he is also the perfect person to convince her that it’s ok to share the burden sometimes.
This book was a quick read for me, because I didn’t want to put it down. I loved all the Hope Fall’s books but this one has a special place in my heart. I just hope we get to keep checking in with these two in future books.
I don't know why I'm surprised that Melanie Shawn just keeps writing better and better books, but each book always outdoes the last. I'm not sure how that's possible! I loved Fire and Foreplay. The insta-love story is one, for me, that will never get old. Gabe fell hard and fast. Not just for Adriana, but her kids as well. I think that's the thing I loved the most about him. That he was head over heels for all of them. A little twist thrown in for good measure....and you've got yourself a sexy, funny, swoon-worthy, perfect stand alone book!
