For a romance book, the characters don’t actually spend much of the book in a relationship – it doesn’t matter though – the feelings and chemistry between the two MCs speak for themselves. I spent most of the book rooting for them to get back together and enjoyed it so much more for the fact they don’t just rush straight back into things. The book acknowledges the past and its associated feelings, whilst somehow managing not to dwell too much.
I really enjoyed the firefighter aspects of the book – you could genuinely feel Mitch’s experiences and the camaraderie between the crew. The secondary characters were funny and interesting, helping to provide perspective on the MCs and how they’ve come to be where they are.
The HEA felt right and I’m really looking forward to the promised epilogue.
