France's Cain is a woman on the run. After escaping an abusive relationship the only thing Frankie is concerned with is evading her abusive ex and staying alive. She doesn't stay in one city for too long so making friends isn't a concern for her.
Hardy Hanson, local fire chief, attracts women like moths to a flame. But, Hardy doesn't have room for the women around town who throw themselves at him- he focuses all of his attention on working and keeping his crew safe. That is until a fiery redhead burns down his defenses.
I don't think I've read a story as angsty and tender as Hardy and Frankie's in a long time. For a minute I thought this story was going to be predictable and I was preparing myself for the heartache that comes from reading a story that's cliché. I am more than thrilled to report that this is NOT a cliché. This is the kind of story you ready if you love romance but you want it mirrored to real life. These characters aren't ones that are made from sugar and spice and everything nice. These are character who are made from fire, sweat, and tears.
My only complaint is that the ending felt too short, if not a little rushed. I literally checked the percentage and cringed because there wasn't enough left for all that I wanted to happen (or at least for me to get as many details as the earlier chapters of the story).
Apparently this is a standalone within a series....guess I'll be reading the entire series now.
