Fire captain and bar owner Becker Thomas usually spends his nights alone, trying to escape painful memories from his past. When he meets a sexy, free-spirited brunette outside his bar, he knows he’s found the perfect way to forget for one night. But when he later discovers the woman he’s itching for another night with is his best friend’s sister, everything comes to a halt.
Just out of a toxic relationship, Megan Jansen is only in Hidden Oaks to visit her brother, photograph the firemen’s calendar, and then slip off to another adventure. The brooding man who gave her the best sex ever is an unexpected surprise. The problem is, he’s her brother’s friend and a fellow fireman, and Megan’s rule is no firemen. She knows she’s going to get burned …but keeping their hands off each other is easier said than done.
Megan Jansen fresh off a horrible relationship comes to Hidden Oaks to hang with her brother and do a photo shoot for the firemen’s calendar before going off to Portland for an apprenticeship as a tattoo artist.. Megan is a true free spirit. Not only is she a photographer, but she is also a talented artist, oh and she rides a motorcycle!
Becker Thomas owns a local bar and he is the fire captain at the local volunteer firehouse. Becker has some past issues that he still needs to get through, but for the time being he wants to get to know the hot girl that is taking off her bra in the alley behind his bar. When Megan and Becker meet they have a wonderful conversation, you can tell right away that the chemistry is so hot, that you know the alarm bells well be going off soon. They have a very hot one night together.
Of course, good things come at a price, right? Megan finds out that Becker is a fireman and Megan doesn’t DO firemen. Her reasoning for not dating firemen has to do with her dad. Then when Becker finds out that he slept with Travis’ sister (Travis is Megan’s brother), he’s a little shocked to say the least. Megan’s brother is overly protective of his sister. He notices some sparks and has told Becker ever so nicely “stay away from my sister”. But the heart wants what the heart wants, right?
I have read almost all of Ms. Blakely’s books. She is so refreshing. I love that this female heroine is not your typical whiny one. Yes, Megan has some issues, but nothing to the extreme that you would want to smack the crap out of her. She made Megan hot, artistic and independent. Megan knows what she wants and gets it, love that.
Although Becker was also brooding about his past, he learned to let Megan in (even though Megan was a tough nut to crack). Megan and Becker’s sexy times was scorching hot, 5 alarmers. Will these two make it together? You must read and find out.
Again, I will read anything that Lauren writes. She’s great at Contemporary Romance as well as Erotica (if you haven’t read her Seductive Nights Series, A MUST READ).
