Torn between their responsibilities and their attraction for each other, their history ignites a spark that neither can deny.

Review:  In book 1 of this trilogy, we meet Jo who has grown up with Brian.  There’s always been a chemistry between the two families that sets the pages of this book on FIRE.  Both characters are strong individuals, and Brian is the HOT alpha male yet a gentleman who makes no qualms about it.  Jo isn’t a pushover either.  Both Jo and Brian have a “no BS” type of attitude and are finally at a place in their lives that they can finally admit to what they’re feeling. 

Will their pasts’ get the best of them?  Can Jo look past Brian’s ways?  Will Brian be able to solve the mystery surround Jo?

This would have been a 5* book for me if it weren’t for the similarities between the names used in this book and that of other, more widely known books, and the somewhat predictable nature of this book.  I did LOVE LOVE LOVE the communication and familiarity we see between the two main characters. All in all, great book, great storyline, and I can’t wait for book 2!
