Saddled with a job she hates and a detestable boss she likes even less, Adeline Reynolds could use a break. It doesn’t look like she’ll get one today. Her service dog, Coco, is alerting her she’s about to have an epileptic seizure—and her frustrated blind date has left her to deal on her own. Enter firefighter Dean Christopherson, who escorts her to the nearby fire station, where she can suffer through her ordeal safe from injury and prying eyes.
Dean—known as “Crash” to his friends—didn’t expect to find The One in a diner during his lunch break, but he’s blindsided by the beautiful, brave Adeline. She brings out his every protective instinct—along with the carnal ones. As they get to know each other, Dean’s feelings for Adeline grow fast, as does his irritation with her boss, whose behavior is suspicious at best.
As much as he wants to protect Adeline from the world, Crash has to tread carefully. His overprotectiveness could push her away…and leave her vulnerable to a man whose obsession has reached the boiling point.

Turn your fan on high for this one!!!
Make sure you keep a fan close by for this one! This is book 7 in the Badge of Honor series and it features firefighter Dean Christopherson, Adeline Reynolds and her service dog Coco. I love a strong female lead. Even though Adeline had her medical issues she was no pushover. And Dean? Well, he definitely has a way with words. I mean he REALLY knows how to say what is EXACTLY on his mind. He is delicious with a mouth made for sin! In this book, unlike the others in the series, the story line was more about the relationship between Adeline and Dean. The threat to her was more of a background story that came to the forefront every now and then throughout the book. There was the right amount of suspense and it progressed steadily.
Susan Stoker always writes fantastic stories but it's the amazing characters that have me hooked. They're always so real and down-to-earth. It doesn't hurt that they're easy on the eyes , they're all heroes in one way or another and their leading ladies are equally amazing. I can't express how excited I am for the next book in this fantastic series!
Slow pace at beginning but heartwarming at the end
