Following a near death experience, firefighter/paramedic Emma Hill's world is turned upside down. Haunted by a vision of the man who could very well be her soul mate, Emma is desperate to find that man, but fear stands in her way. With a maniacal ex-husband determined to get her back, Emma struggles to stay clear of him or risk living a life riddled by quiet desperation and abuse. Fighting with a dirty cop is dangerous enough, but when that dirty cop is her ex-husband the stakes are raised to disastrous levels. Craig Masterson, the firefighter who saved Emma's life, finds himself falling for her. When he learns who her ex-husband is, he realizes that this is a battle he may not win. Choosing to love her is a deadly game. If he can stay alive, their love may flourish, but only if he can defeat her ex. Heat level: low (for this book - the rest in the series are moderate to moderately-high), suspense, thriller level: moderate. Some swearing. 18+ Cliffhanger.
Five Boundless Stars
This one was going so good and right at a crucial moment, bam the book ends; I seriously yelled at my phone. The bad thing was, I was sitting at my desk at work. The good thing is they are used to me being a crazy nut job, so nobody said anything.
I really got into this story and was incredibly wrapped up in Emma and Craig. Emma has had such a truly hard life, and all she wants is to be loved and have a family of her own. Yet, the one guy that can bring her that, she almost loses because of her own foolishness. Craig couldn’t be any more perfect; he is sweet, caring, tall, muscled, and HELLO a firefighter. I’ve seen my local firefighters and boy howdy! Oh look I’ve fainted and need mouth to mouth, shall I swoon!
There is also a bigger revolving backstory going on with the corruption in Westwood Harbor, and it looks like 7 books have been written so far. Only Edge of the Heat is on audiobook. I am going to email the author and find out when or if anymore will be made into audiobooks. I hope so; I really loved it and am giving it 5 Boundless Stars.
