A guilt-driven firefighter, a widowed mother, neither is ready for love, but love has other plans.
Firefighter Lucas Bennett had the carefree life he’d always wanted until a deadly blaze took the life of his company mate and best friend. Blaming himself was easy but pulling himself from the tailspin of guilt proved to be much harder. The fog of sadness and guilt pushed him down a dangerous path until he nearly died fighting the beast. Forced to stop and reevaluate his life, he decided to make a change before it was too late.
A fire took almost everything from Sarah Robinson—her husband and her home—leaving her to raise their precious daughter alone. Everywhere she looked held memories of her husband, pouring salt on her ever-present wound. Unable to live any longer around the memories of her husband, she and her daughter moved to Oak Grove, far away from the grief of the past. All Sarah needed was the chance to start a new life for her and her daughter.
A car accident on a dark, rainy night put Lucas and Sarah on a collision course neither of them expected… with questions they’re not ready to answer. Can a single mother open her broken heart for a second chance at love? Will a broken firefighter risk his heart for what might be his only chance at forever? Are each of them willing to take one last risk to be together? His risk. Her reward. Together, they’ll mend each other's broken hearts.

Great series starter...Love is worth the risk
Lucas and Sarah are emotionally raw from the loss of loved ones. Sarah finds comfort in her memories and her precious daughter. These two meet by chance and are drawn to one another immediately, Sarah is blubbering mess and he's very interested, lol. As they ease into a relationship, they have the chemistry, their path is very interesting and a little curvy but Lucas tenacity is what keeps this cookie from crumbling. Sarah has got to decide for herself if this love is worth the risk or will she continue to run and hide from the gift of life.
PS. This is not a cliffhanger but I would really like to know what is going on with Lucas sister Rachel, it seems serious.
Another stone on the beach. Nothing special
Small Town Romance
Small town romance set in Oak Grove. Sarah, young widow with small daughter wants to start her life over after loosing her husband in a fire. Shortly after moving to Oak Grove she is involved in a car accident when Lucas, EMT/Firefighter rescues her. Lucas has his own demons after loosing his best friend in a house fire.

Great characters that are both fighting their own demons but come to terms with their pasts. I fell in love with both Sarah and Lucas, both very strong. Lucas willing to give up what he has to win over Sarah. Sarah's daughter, Lily is so cute too.
I highly recommend this story, looking forward to my next visit to Oak Grove.
