Series: Where There’s Smoke #2

This is a fun, best friends/second chance romance.
Romances never seem to work out well for Tony Warren or his best friend, photographer Kayla Gladney – not even dating each other worked for them. After one more relationship ends in another friendship and Tony drinking a load of shots, he agrees that whilst the two of them are off touring so she can photograph past burn out sites they’ll take the opportunity to ask some of his ex-girlfriends just why their relationship ended. Will it prove he’s a terrible boyfriend or a total commitment-phobe? However, as the journey progresses, the heat between the two of them grows . . . .
This is a story of a journey, both a physical one around the burn sites and another to the past and developing awareness of its impact on present day attitudes and behaviours. It is a family drama, one which includes secrets, abuse, developing self-awareness and going for your dreams. Much is inspired by a book Kayla reads and it helps them both open up to each other and to love. However, a call about his Mum may change all that forever . . .
This is a great addition to the series and I thoroughly enjoyed reading it. The revelations are moving and explain such a lot – but I’m not going to tell you what they are, you need to read the book for yourself to discover them! I’ll definitely be looking out to read the third book in the series when it becomes available!
Thanks to Entangled and NetGalley for my copy of this book which I have voluntarily read and honestly reviewed.
After a night of too many drinks, smokejumper Tony Warren and his best friend, photographer Kayla Gladney, come to the realization that they’re both bad at love. They even tried dating each other, but that crashed and burned, too. Now he’s got the hangover from hell and the certain conclusion he’s just a shit boyfriend. But Kayla thinks he’s a straight-up commitment-phobe.
So they make a bet—they’re going to hunt down his exes and decide once and for all why he’s so unlucky in love. Terrible boyfriend or commitment-phobe. Why does either answer feel like he’s still losing?
But between roadside burgers and late night detours, they discover some fires never burn out—like the one slowly smoldering between them. And suddenly losing feels a whole lot like winning again.
