Cassie Wolford has crushed on fireman Quinn Gallagher ever since he moved to Clearwater three years ago. There’s just one problem: he’s always made it clear dating is out of the question. But once a Wolford sets their sights on someone, that person doesn’t stand a chance! Cassie decides it’s time for Quinn to get a dose of his own medicine… and sets out to show him what he’s missing!
Quinn knows only too well what Cassie’s up to but he can’t give her what she wants. He isn’t good for anyone, much less someone as sweet as his angel. Fighting her off hurts like hell, but giving her false hope of a happy ever after would be damn cruel. That’s why he has to leave Clearwater.
Unfortunately, someone from his past has different ideas and when Cassie’s life is threatened this former CIA operative is staying put, prepared to crawl through hell and back to keep her safe. And it looks like he might just have to.
This story is centered around firefighter Quinn the best friend to Wolf and his younger brother Jace. They are a large family that Wolf took over raising when they died in their family home, in a fire no less. So, now the two brothers fight fires so others don’t live what they went through with their sisters.
The youngest sister is the female lead and a spitfire. This would be Cassie. She just turned twenty-one the day before the story opens. She and Quinn are best friends more so than the boys since one is married and one a fiancé.
Cassie and Quinn go running together movies, etc.… They met at her eighteenth birthday party and for Cassie, it was love at first sight. Quinn, he thought she was a beauty and spitfire and energy for days.
But when she arrives the day after her twenty-first and starts to question him about why he broke his promise of coming to her party he loses it. In front, of all the guys Mr. I-Could-Give-A-Shit meaning about her tells her. They are only friends never more so stop following him around drooling all over him because nothing romantic is ever happening.
As she left on her way out, she left her pass key to the station apologized to the men and left to go to a party at a bar with her friends where she decided she was leaving town. All because he didn’t like her sexy clothes.
By the end, I was totally into it, but it just stops. What the hell! Not good. No epilogue or anything. I give this: 4 stars. Provided by netgalley.com. Follow us at www.1rad-readerreviews.com.
