An honorable man who’s lost his way . . . A career woman who hides behind her button-up suits . . . Unexpected romance is the specialty at the Fireside Grill as Stacey Lynn’s captivating series comes full circle.
Becoming an ER doctor had been David McGregor’s mission ever since he could remember. But after tragedy strikes at his hospital in Chicago, David runs away from the guilt—all the way back to Latham Hills, Michigan, where he takes a job tending bar at his childhood friend’s restaurant. That’s how he meets Camden Reed, and the way Camden refuses to give him the time of day should be a turnoff. Instead, he’s drawn to her tough, tightly wound exterior, and soon David realizes that he has a new mission: to see her tightly wound beneath him.
Camden’s fighting tooth and nail to resist the desire she feels for David. Growing up dirt-poor, raised by a single mother, she worked twice as hard to get where she is today, and she doesn’t have any patience for the kind of guy who’d give up a decent paycheck to sling drinks. But when the sexual tension finally combusts between the sheets, Camden discovers that people aren’t always what they seem. As David pushes her past her limits, Camden begins to loosen up—and to trust that, when she falls, there will be someone waiting to catch her.

Finding Their Way...
After experiencing trauma and near-poverty conditions as a child, Camden works relentlessly to achieve her goals. She claims she doesn't have time or energy for a relationship. Therefore, she repeatedly turns down David's offers for a date. Her friends believe she won't date David because he's a bartender, but that's far from the truth!
David experienced the loss of his dad as a young child. He felt helpless as he watched his dad die. So he decides to become a doctor in hopes that no one has to experience the pain of loss as he did. Only, that's life and everyone eventually dies. Upon seeing the pain of a father David has to tell that his wife passed away, David decides to run. David tends bar for Declan until he figures out his life. In the meantime, he pursues Camden.
The heat and passion between these two is undeniable! It's heartbreaking to watch Camden relive her past so that she may move on to possibly have a life with David. David is supportive, loving, and patient with Camden. I love how their story unfolds and how they "find" themselves. Stacey Lynn captured their spirit and love for each other through their actions. This is the 4th novel in the Fireside series and can be read as a stand alone. I recommend reading the series in order though. I read a gifted copy and all opinions stated are my own.
HIS TO SEDUCE
4 1/2 STARS!
An emotionally raw novel filled with a couple of wounded souls finding healing in each other's arms! It was bittersweet to read this book because even though it's one of my favorites in the series, it's also the last. Sad to let this great group of friends go!
David McGregor abandoned his life in Chicago to come to his friend's aid in Latham Hills, Michigan, but the fact that Aidan needed him was just happenstance to the fact that he needed to leave the turmoil of his life behind. He may have been a doctor once upon a time, but the trauma that happened one night led him to this place ... to the heartache that he feels ... and to just needing the easy life of bartending at his buddy's bar for a little while.
Camden Reed carries her own secrets from past heartache, and she doesn't do relationships ... but she can't deny she's drawn to the ever-flirting David even if he isn't the type of man she would ever go for. She needs stability, not a flitting through life bartender!
When passion ignites and secrets are revealed, will the fallout lead to forgiveness and a future no one expected?
Another incredible story in the Fireside Series. The long awaited story of David and Camden. I absolutely loved this book. This book is totally David and Cam.
On a spur of the moment wedding trip to Jamaica, David and Cam finally hook up. In the closet... in a hallway... David has been waiting for 5 months for Cam. Patiently. Now that he has her, he's got the weekend to prove to her that they're worth it. Cam's inner dialogue is hilarious at times, she's the one out of all the girls who's wrapped as tight as the bark on a birch tree. Cam doesn't deviate, takes no risks, she makes lists, insists on order and she doesn't hook up with men in closets.
David sets about to change that, pushing Cam out of her very tightly woven comfort zone and it's great to watch these two together. Cam tells herself it's only one night, but then she relents to him.
They both have secrets. David is a bartender at Fireside. The guys know his past and why he's there and it's alluded to in a couple earlier books. But outside of that he hasn't told anyone because he doesn't want to go there. Cam's secret in painful and only two people know, her best friend Suzanne and her mother.
These two spend a large part of the book working through their "sharing" of those stories and it's David who allows himself to be vulnerable first after having his hand forced, it sends Cam running for the hills. Literally. This book was great because it was good to hear the men weigh in on the situation. Especially Aiden who pulled no punches with David. The girls were a little peripheral in this one except Chelsea. David takes her home to meet his family, which he warns her is a little wild and it's there she sees what a real family is like and how it feels to be loved and accepted just the way she is. His mother was perfect and I loved his sister.
Cam makes the road back to her rough for David. Even after him telling her his story, she's still withholding from him. The sex is hotter than hell, because Stacey can write some smoking hot scenes and this book isn't short on those either. They're woven nicely into the book. Just bring a panty change.
I loved David in this story, Cam too. Despite wanting to knock her upside the head once or twice, she's a tad slow on the uptake. But this book as is the rest of this series, is stellar. Stacey Lynn can write a great story and it's a character read. These people have real lives and relevant issues and are dealt with as such. It's perfect from beginning to end.
I'm sad to see this series end. Thank you Stacey Lynn for a great ride through the lives of everyone in this series. It's a must read series.
