There was a time when Eden’s entire world revolved around Owen Forbes. They were inseparable childhood sweethearts. They planned a life together. Then, without so much as a goodbye, Owen vanished. Now, after ten years, he’s returned to town as the hottest new firefighter on the force. Whatever secrets pulled them apart, Eden can’t fight the sparks reignited by the man who broke her heart.

Owen knows he did Eden wrong. If only he could tell her why. As body meets body, he’s whispering for a second chance—wanting her back so bad it hurts. It can also be dangerous. An arsonist is targeting the small town of Edmonds, and Eden with it. And it’s Owen himself who’s become engulfed in suspicion.

Eden knows that with a past as hot and mysterious as Owen’s, their future together could go up in flames. Because the one man she’s afraid to trust is the only man she desires—and the only one who can save her.

Incomplete story

Only the romance is wrapped up with a HEA. There is a leftover, escaped bad-guy cliffhanger to make you buy the next book. This is not a standalone. An author should be clear when a series must be read in full and in order. I felt throughout the story that I was missing a lot because I had not read the first two books in the series. I did not feel the connection between the h and her best friend.

This is the first book I have read by this author. I think I like her writing style. I was just unfamiliar, therefore unarmed. This book may have gotten an entirely different rating if I’d been informed my enjoyment would have been more by reading in order.

I received this book for free through Goodreads Giveaways. I’m kind of relieved I didn’t pay for it.
