Zach Thomas has dedicated his life to firefighting, having lost his parents in a fire. While his job and his friends have always been enough for him, he finds himself restless for something, or maybe someone, to round out his life. When he meets Brooke,
the attraction is instantaneous and it is definitely undeniable. Zach understands that Brooke has always been content to live in a constant state of motion and total independence, but he’s hopeful that he can convince her to consider a serious, long-term relationship with him.
Jill Shalvis never fails to deliver characters and settings that are believable and realistic; Zach and Brooke are no exception. They both have painful pasts that are reflected in
they have become. Both are insecure as to what
they have to offer in a lasting relationship so
they’ve simply avoided becoming involved. Now that
they’ve met each o
ther, it looks like
they may have to rethink
their plans for
the future. I highly recommend this book for all contemporary romance readers.
