Six years ago, Kate Cassidy broke Rafe Casella’s heart by abandoning him a few months before their wedding. Now she’s in town with the gut-wrenching news that she had his baby, in secret, and she wants Rafe back. She has to be kidding!
But Kate is deadly serious. She made the worst mistake of her life when she left Hidden Cove and she’s determined to fix it. She plans to reinstate herself in the fire department and raise her son in a loving family—one that includes his father.
A rollercoaster of emotion, devastating fires, a stalker targeting Kate and a sizzling attraction that never diminished, set the two of them on an irrevocable course to reunion. That is if they can all stay alive.
If you liked the face-paced events, breathtaking tenderness, uplifting messages of forgiveness, as well as on-the-edge-of-your-seat fire scenes, all characteristic of the Hidden Cove Fire Department Series, then you’ll love New York Times bestselling author Kathryn Shay’s ninth installment.

Take Me Back
I received a complimentary copy of this book and I am voluntarily reviewing it.
This was a wonderful story to round out this fantastic series. I hope there will be another series that can cross over here. I hate to see a conclusion to a series like this. It is like saying good-bye to friends.
The plot was beautifully written and completely drew me in. The scenes were well thought out and flowed very nicely. At first, I really didn't care for Kate Cassidy. She left Rafe Casella just a few months before their wedding six years ago. She has just found out that she was pregnant with his baby and left! Because the story is written in a dual POV format. I was given insight into the character's thought and motivations for leaving. I really needed that as I was not raised in foster care. I didn't go through her experiences. Later, she does marry a teacher. Upon his death, she realizes that life is not promised no matter what your profession. She comes back to Hidden Cove to get back together with Rafe. Unfortunately for her, Rafe is engaged to someone else. Now this was the part that I didn't care for. She blatantly told Rafe that she was going to win him back.
The funny thing with books; I feel that they should make me feel sometime. My emotions were all over the place with this one. I was won over by the character when her full explanation was revealed. I became her cheerleader. I just adored their son.
If you love a book about second chances with your first or a prior love, (especially if he is a firefighter) then you have to read this one. The best part, she was also a firefighter. That was a great experience in the book. Now there were just a few "sexy" scenes that were so basically eluded to and faded into black that it shouldn't offend anyone over the age of 18.
Take Me Back
ARC for honest review with no compensation
Take Me Back is book 9 in the Hidden Cove Firefighters series by Kathryn Shay and am loving this series!
Years ago Rafe and Kate were engaged but she up and left right with no warning a few months before the wedding. Now, 6 years later she decides to come back with a secret she has been hiding all these years and is determined to win him back. Only he wants nothing to do with her until the secret is revealed...
What happens next will keep you turning the pages to find out where they end up…Broken up for good or will they find their HEA?
I was hooked from the first sentence. Ms. Shay writes a good book with great character development. It was good to visit with my friends from Hidden Cove again.
