Genre: Romance

Back cover blurb: Burning for you…

Some men are off limits. Close friends of your ex-husband, for instance. Or firefighters who work in the same building as you. Yet despite her best judgment, librarian Lauren Foster can’t help noticing fire captain Jake Davis whenever he jogs by…shirtless. They’ve always been friends, but all it takes is one not-so-chance meeting at a local bar and one not-quite-innocent walk home to ignite a fierce, uncontrollable desire between them.

Widower Jake Davis has tried to ignore the spark he feels whenever Lauren’s around, but once he sees her curves in a little black dress, there’s no turning back. No matter how often she says she’s all wrong for him, the sexy, outspoken divorcee is driving him wild in the best possible way. Maybe she’s just blowing off steam. Or maybe he can convince her to fan these flames into something deeper, hotter, and truer than they ever expected…

My review: What a nice change to read a hot romance about people my age! Lauren is 43 and divorced, looking to scratch an itch with the hunky 46-year-old widowed fire chief who works, often shirtless, next to her library. Oh yes, this was good. Nice touches of humour, and the steam level was high. My only beef is the guy on the cover doesn’t look old enough to be Jake. But I’ll definitely be reading more of this series.

My rating: 5/5
