Give me a hot firefighter that knows how to ignite and put out fires and I’m a happy camper.  Adam Collins is just that.  One sexy firefighter.  He has this crazy notion that because his dad and his grandfather were playboys and were not the marrying kind.  So because of that he’s stayed away from the one woman in town that makes his blood boil with want.  Josie Wells.  Pre-school teacher, sweet girl, the type of girl that wants a husband, a white picked fence, and kids.  All things he can’t give her, or so he thinks.

Josie is waiting for Mr. Right to come along, but it’s been so long since she’s been with a man that her friends make her go for a night of hot sexy with the town’s playboy, Adam.  Knowing his reputation it was just meant to be a scratching an itch kind of thing.  But after one HOT time against the back of his firetruck in the middle of Towns Square during the festival, and they both want more.

I think this was the one story that required the least amount of meddling from our designated matchmaker.  And it was kind of cute to see Trent from book 1 having a bit of a role in this story being that he’s Adam’s best friend and they work together.

I loved Adam because, well, he’s just the type of hero everyone wants to drool for.  But Josie was a great heroine.  Sweet on the inside but very naughty on the inside.  Being that it was a short story I think there was plenty she was left without exploring, I would’ve read a lot more of these two. 😉

About Cathryn Fox

I've been reading romance novels for as long as I can remember. I just never thought I'd be writing them. In fact, I graduated from university with a business degree and started working in the Finance Department of Environment Canada...shiver. A few years into my career, my hubby, who's a meteorologist, got posted up north, population 800. I quit my job and went with him. At first all the spare time was great, then I got bored so I started to read. Day and night. When I ran out of books to read I decided to try writing one. After all, how hard could it be. Ha!! Well, you guessed it. It was hard!

Many years later I discovered Romance Writers of America and have learned a great deal since joining my local chapter. My journey to publication hasn't been smooth sailing, but with the support and guidance from the wonderful writers at RWAC, it's been a lot easier. And a lot more fun!

Good review! I’m glad that Adam gets a chance at an HEA since he was so funny in the first book in this series.
