Abbi Haas likes them big, bad, and out of her bed the next morning. So when a smoking hot firefighter shuts down a possessive ex by pretending to be her boyfriend, she’s happy to play along—and stay for the no-strings-attached sex under the stars. But her knight with bulging biceps had better not think she’s some damsel in distress. She’ll handle her ex like she does everything: on her own.
Wildland firefighter Tyler McCall is supposed to be taking a break from danger. First step to having fun: pick up a sexy stranger by pretending he’s her man. Too bad his fake girlfriend is also his new coworker…and their little white lie has already spread. Tyler knows he should walk away before he gets burned. But he can’t stay out of trouble, and there’s no way he’s letting her go.
This story is one of love/hate relationship so to speak. We have Abbi who’s be taken advantage as a teen which has made her very hard to trust anyone. Tyler has lost his best friend in a raging fire so he chose to leave LA to come to Gold Mountain in order to supervise building of a firebreak and maybe find some peace of mind.
When I started reading this story I had a feeling it was going to be a hit with how they met, how Tyler come to Abbi’s rescue…but the more I read the more I got agitated with Abbi. I get that she has legit reason to be closed off and not letting anyone near and I get that what happened to her was a shitty thing – but that was no excuse how she reacted when Tyler told her why he came to Gold Mountain or when he saved her life in the forest. The biggest eye roll was when she went to the court to testify and was thinking he didn’t even contact her to see who she was – I mean HELLO you told him to get lost and forget that she even exists…but OK; if I look past this »problem« then this is a good book to read. The banter was funny (when Abbi didn’t try to push Tyler away), the side characters we good people who loved Abbi and at the end tried to help Tyler to win her back, the plot was not bad but was a little predictable.
I wasn’t all bad; just a few parts had me almost screaming out load 😛

ABOUT REBECCA BROOKS
Rebecca Brooks lives in New York City in an apartment filled with books. She received a PhD in English but decided it was more fun to write books than write about them. She has backpacked alone through India and Brazil, traveled by cargo boat down the Amazon River, climbed Mt. Kilimanjaro, explored ice caves in Peru, trekked to the source of the Ganges, and sunbathed in Burma, but she always likes coming home to a cold beer and her hot husband in the Bronx. Her books are about independent women who leave their old lives behind to try something new—and find the passion, excitement and purpose they didn’t know they’d been missing.
