Our marriage might be fake, but the heat between us is real.
Cassidy was always around. The girl next door.
But as we grew up, my time in the military made us grow apart.
She isn’t my little Ladybug anymore.
She’s a confident, curvy beauty. And I want her to climb my ladder.
Until her mom got sick and everything changed.
Her mother’s dying wish?
To see her baby walk down the aisle.
I never expected Cass to ask me.
Brady is hot. So hot I can barely be near him.
Always has been. And he has no idea I have loved him since I was four.
But our timing has never been right, however now, my mom has little time left.
My idea to get married is totally insane, but for some reason he goes along with it.
At night, our passion ignites, and by day, he saves lives while I pick out cakes and favors.
Everything is perfect.
Until it isn’t.
Our lie could end up burning everyone we love.
Debut author Chase Jackson invites you to meet the men of Firehouse 56. You're going to need a hose down after all this heat.
