New York Times bestselling author Jaci Burton is back with a friends-to-lovers romance sure to melt hearts as one smokin'-hot fireman turns up the heat on love.
Relationships. Firefighter Rafe Donovan avoids them whenever possible. He loves dating women, but he makes sure they know up front that he's in it for fun, great sex and nothing more.
Fun. As an ER nurse and official caretaker of her disabled grandfather, Carmen Lewis doesn't have time for fun. But Rafe has been there for Carmen--and her grandfather--time and again, and he's clearly interested in her. She knows he's a player, but she's tempted by his charm and incredible body. And maybe a little fun isn't a bad thing, as long as she keeps her heart away from this fiery game she's enjoying with a very hot man.
Love. It doesn't take Rafe long to realize that until now he's only been playing at romance. With Carmen he feels searing passion and heart-tugging emotion for the first time. Now he has to convince Carmen that what they have together is the real deal.
The red-hot second installment of Burton's Brotherhood by Fire series (after Hot to the Touch) delivers an irresistible couple with vastly different ideas about love. Fort Lauderdale ER nurse Carmen Lewis refuses to date, claiming long hours at work, a grandfather who relies on her for care, and the still-smarting disastrous end to her first marriage, as excuses despite how frequently she fantasizes about her next-door neighbor Hottie McFireman, aka Rafe Donovan. Rafe has always taken a no-strings-attached approach to his past relationships, but there's something about Carmen that makes him want a happily ever after, and he's determined to convince Carmen to take a chance on him. Burton skillfully ratchets up the sexual tension as the pair grow closer, only to throw a believable obstacle in their path that could send their budding romance off the rails forever. Spicy love scenes and charming supporting characters especially Carmen's wisecracking bestie, Tess, and Rafe's brothers, fellow firefighters Jackson and Kal add sparkle. Burton will delight existing fans and win herself even more with this sweet, sexy romance.
Oh my gosh! Great book. I was shocked and pleased to read this book.
