Have you ever wanted to just step out of your comfort zone and do something wildly crazy? The heroine of this story, Mila, does just that after ending a disastrous relationship. She goes out to a costume party, spots a sexy hunk and throws caution to the wind to have one night of total unbridled passion! No names, no promises, no exchanging numbers; just hot sex! Her one night of rebellion though didn't quite go according to plan and a slight issue with a condom and yes you've guessed it, Mila is left with a permanent reminder! Fast forward about six years and Mila and her daughter Cherish are starting a new life and boy does it feel good.
Kyle is a firefighter with an unfortunately very persistent ex-girlfriend. Oh, he knows just what it's like to coast along and try to please someone else constantly but now he is just happy to get a little peace and enjoy his job and his good friends. What he hadn't expected was to look out his window one morning to see a very sexy new neighbour with an adorable little girl. Kyle is not one to let the grass grow under his feet and promptly introduces himself, but his new neighbour seems wary and well frankly a bit skittish. Oh boy, is Kyle in trouble though as he really wants to get to know Mila better but he's a patient man and determined to wear her down. Mila may have put up defences but a smoking hot fireman is about to burn them to the ground!
This was a nice easy read and flowed very well. Ms Rivers writes quite steamy romances and this was no exception with a couple who truly struggle to keep their hands off each other. If honest, I did guess part of the story but that did not spoil it for me as I felt I was in the know so to speak and wondered when the characters would catch up! I'm sure some readers might find it too sweet for their taste but not everyone enjoys the recent trend for dark romance and if you just want to become engulfed in a story with a happy ending then this book delivers in spades.
