For fans of Jaci Burton and Roxanne St. Claire comes a sizzling contemporary romance from New York Times and USA Today bestselling author Marie Harte:
• Enemies to lovers romance
• Sexy Seattle firefighters
• Forced proximity, workplace romance
• Irresistible attraction and scorching high heat
• Adorable dogs from the local animal rescue
Reporter Avery Dearborn hasn't had the best day. She was filmed fending off a lovesick dog before being rescued from falling flat on her face by none other than her arch nemesis. Seattle firefighter Brad Battle hasn't changed at all in the five years since she last saw him. He's still handsome, hot, and charming—to everyone but her.
Brad can't believe his bad luck to run into Avery, of all people. But to make matters worse, their shared chemistry on screen goes viral. Soon he's forced to work with her for a popular online live streaming segment. The spot will help the local animal charity and make the fire department look good, so who is he to disobey a direct order to cooperate?
Trust takes time, but as Avery and Brad come to realize they are different people than when they first met, anger turns to irresistible attraction, and hard feelings into hot sex. But letting the past stay in the past isn't as easy as it sounds. And if they're not careful, that attraction could ignite and they'll both get burned.
**Trigger warning: book has mention of the hero's tragic past, involving a friend's suicide.

Fantastic! This book is everything you could want, a sexy firefighter, a sassy journalist, loyal but somewhat crazy friends and dogs and cats. The story is interesting, exciting and full of heart. The diaglogue is clever, sharp and on point. The characters are vivid, dynamic and are so real that you would want to be a part of their world. I laughted out loud. I had streams of tears. My heart warmed.

It is so much fun to witness their sudden awareness and how they manage to move forward from arch nemesis to lovers.
