After the death of her Mom who suffered from early onset Alzheimers and a series of traumatic events, Katherine (Kat) Robinson took a chance by moving to Marietta, Montana with her much loved ten year old son, Brady, who has Aspergers. This is the place Kat’s Mom had very happy memories of and where Kat was conceived. She doesn’t know who her father is, her Mom wouldn’t tell her anything except he was already married. She’s been working as part of the Crawford County Search and Rescue team for a year and is delighted that her old boss has gone but is wary of the new guy because she knows, if the timing had been different, it is a job she’d have gone for.
Flynn Bensen is moving to Marietta after his last wildfire rescue attempt failed to save an elderly women. He’s been having recurrent nightmares about it ever since and feels guilty though everyone else says his efforts were heroic. Now he’s taken the new job and takes in donuts on his first day with the team, bumping into one of them and nearly dropping the donuts in the process! What an introduction for Flynn and Kat. The attraction between them is instantaneous and highly volatile but he’s determined never to have a relationship with a co-worker and she’s focussed on looking after Brady. Will they be able to keep resisting? When Brady decides to confront his possible grandfather and do a disappearing act, life is going to get hectic for the two adults. Will she recognise Flynn as the hero she needs and loves or will her head rule her heart?
It is lovely to meet up with familiar characters in this series again! The story is well written, with plenty of action, drama and turmoil as well as emotional upheaval to keep the reader entertained throughout. The characters both need to learn to move forward despite their fears for the future and their journey to reach their HEA is a fantastic read and a great addition to the series. It also leaves more characters to find their own HEA in future novels and I’ll certainly be looking out for them being published, too!
Thanks to the authors, publisher and NetGalley, too for letting me read an ARC of this book in exchange for an honest review.
