Chance O’Connell doesn’t do romance. After the firefighter has his heart broken, his idea of a relationship consists of one night with no attachments. Somehow, the dragon shifter finds himself drawn to Hope, the waitress at the local diner. Rather than make her one of his conquests, he sits in her section and pretends he doesn’t want her.
Hope Sinclair is done with abusive men and being a victim. A new town and a new job at a local diner are all she needs for a fresh start. That is until a sexy firefighter takes up near residence in her section. He wants to be friends, but she wants something more. With the holiday bachelor auction coming up, Hope sets her heart on winning a date with Chance.
One night threatens Chance’s vow to remain single, but by the time he finally admits they belong together, it might prove too late. Turns out Hope didn’t run far enough and her past may be the end of them both.
The heat level of this one was off the charts. Dragons and firefighters, you know it's gonna get hot! As the second installment, this did not disappoint. All the characters at the station are great. Ms. Twombly has the ability to write romance with such finesse. But what keeps you turning pages, the story just grabs you. For a PNR to still read with 'real life' going on, rather than overdoing fantasy. That is going to carry this series until each of these men and women find a HEA. I definitely intend to be here to each one. Chance and Hope had an attraction to each other for years. What happens when they act on it, slow, sweet, make you jealous kinda of love. Each with a past that still hurts deep, the future is what matters most. Enjoying the journey with them is well worth it. This is a must read!
