Fire captain Cameron McClain dropped into my life with as much subtlety as an unsolicited d*ck pic. I shouldn’t be attracted to him, but I am. He’s too old for me, too alpha for my tastes, and too bossy in the bedroom. Though, I have to admit he knows exactly how to use his . . . firehose.
I’m not interested in a forever kind of relationship, but he’s down for whatever I’m willing to give. Our arrangement is perfect. At least that’s how it begins. I never wanted the happily ever after, but he’s just so tempting.
The smart choice would be to end things before they combust, but for some reason I can’t push Cam away. The harder I try, the harder he—well, you get the picture.
I wish things were different. I want to be someone worthy of his devotion. But the secrets I hold close, they don’t just eat me up inside, they destroy anyone who gets too close.
So, I won’t fall in love. Simple, right?
Wrong. So freaking wrong. I don’t just fall. I crash and burn for this man. But that’s just the tip of the iceberg. Turns out I’m not the only one telling lies and keeping secrets, and his are enough to rip us apart forever.
** I was Given an ARC in exchange for my honest review. **
I found this one a bit harder to read and get into, Jills reasoning for a lot of different things regarding their relationship were stretching and just hard for me to wrap my head around.
She is a damaged person, but the guilt she has pushed upon herself to lead the distant lifestyle doesn’t seem as warranted from an outside view. Cam is a patient man, who is willing to work with what she wants because just being with Jill makes him happy, or so he thinks.
I wanted to love this book with everything, but I had such a hard time with Jill as a character, and her stubbornness and the long harbouring guilt that didn’t make sense to me and why she kept certain aspects of it such a secret from not only Cam, but her friends who are as close as sisters.
The title of the book is very true, because while I was getting upset with Jill and her lies and secrets, Cam comes out of the gate with a large secret that I understand but don’t all at the same time.
This is a sweet and different love story, if you life Hot firefighters, a few low level twists and are ok with bigger age gaps I do recommend this book to you.
