That wasn’t going to be easy. His kiss was just the start of it. Cass swallowed a moan. ‘Keep that up and I’ll be screaming.’ The thought of being in his arms, all the things that he might do, made her want to scream right now. ‘No, you won’t.’ His body moved against hers, his arm around her waist crushing her tight so that she could feel every last bit of the friction. ‘You’re not going to have breath enough to scream.’ It’s just crisis bonding. That’s what Cass tells herself. It’s just stress and exhaustion from the floods and long nights. She’s not falling for the gorgeous paramedic she rescued near the river. She’s not thinking about what his skin would feel like under her hands as she patches him up with the first aid kit. She’s not listening to him showering in the next stall. She’s definitely not thinking about how when she’s around him and his young daughter Ellie she feels like she can finally let herself have the family and love she’d tried so hard to make, and lost. They both think anything they could have would only be temporary— intense and fast.

I give it - 4/5 My review - This was such a cute story. I read this when I was just curled up on the couch with a glass of wine on my kindle and loved it. I really enjoyed the characters and how fearless Cass and Jack where. They both have very important jobs that take up a lot of their time but, they always have spare time to spend together and with Jacks daughter Ellie. Who is adorable and loves fire engines.
Cass and Jack meet after a storm when he is going to deliver Cass's sisters baby. With the floods and the bridge breaking he stays the night but, sparks fly. With Cass hiding a secret and Jack scared to have a woman in Ellies life that might leave them, they are both worried about letting themselves be happy with each other.
Cass has lost a lot in her life and she's worried about telling Jack. Will she be able to get past what has happened to her and let her be happy? Or will something stop her?
A wonderful romance story full of bravery, heart and letting yourself move on and be happy.
