With passion so blazing hot, you don’t want to put this fire out…

When Rikki’s first love dies in the line of duty she vows to keep her heart guarded and never give it away again.

After moving to a new town for a fresh start, she is given the opportunity to show off her photography skills and shoot a sexy fireman calendar. Although taking the job might bring up painful memories, she knows this is her best chance at fulfilling her dreams of becoming a professional photographer.

While out with her new roommates, Rikki meets Simon and Carter and feels an instant spark of attraction… to both equally gorgeous and tempting men. This is the same intense feeling she had the first time she fell in love. But how can she feel that way about two men?

When she arrives at the firehouse to shoot the calendar, she is surprised to find that Simon and Carter are firefighters so she immediately pulls back on their growing flirtation. But Simon and Carter are men who know what they want, and they want Riki. As the chemistry between them ignites Rikki finds it hard to resist falling prey to her steamiest fantasies.

Now she has to choose between keeping her heart safe… or taking a chance on love… and possibly losing everything.




(Received ARC from Netgalley in exchange for our honest review.)

This was a quick read. You have Rikki who moved to a new town since she was laid off and wanted a new start in life since the death of her fiancé who was a firefighter. Rikki meets two gorgeous guys at a bar. She wanted a casual fling with the guys. She found them attractive and wanted to get rid of her “V” card.
Then she found out they were the lieutenants she was to work with for the firemen’s calendar and she didn’t want anything to do with firemen.

Simon, Carter, and Rikki have great chemistry together. The guys are very protective of her. There was a lot of doubting throughout the book from Rikki. At times in was a bit much and I wanted to straggled her. Then when Simon started doubting at the end I wanted to pull my hair out.

This is a HEA and getting there was exhausting. I loved the supporting cast- Cassie, Tony, and all the guys at the firehouse. Loved the story with the calendar and would love to see the pics of Dodge and especially Carter.
