Summary from Amazon.com:
Determined to be out from under her mother’s ruling and away from a no-good soon-to-be ex-boyfriend, Corey Nolan exercises her independence. With a place to call her own and a job that doesn’t pay well but makes her happy, her life is full and her young daughter is content. There is no room for distractions, until she meets a local firefighter—who stirs an immediate forbidden attraction. In need of control, she tries to ignore Jake Gilroy, but circumstances bring her closer to him when someone is hell-bent on destroying her.
Dutiful playboy Jake is known as the smoking hot fireman. The first time he sets eyes on Corey, he knows he wants her. But when threats and strange occurrences start to happen, he finds the need to protect her and give more than he’s ever given any other woman.
Being together becomes more than they bargained for when their desire for each other becomes a matter of life and death….
This is a page turner. I love a romance book with a good, strong story. This is yet another one! I can't believe my luck. I'm all for hot firefighters, there is just something about them that makes a girl swoon...
Corey is a girl with some emotional baggage and health issues, but that doesn't stop her from leading a productive life and wanting to be independent. She has her family, her friends and even her young daughter around to support her. She lands a job, moves into her own place and is doing well, even if her so-called boyfriend isn't always in the picture.
On her way to her first day of work, she notices those hunky firemen checking her out and she falls for one of them. Literally! She crashes on her bike right there in front of them. Embarrassed? You betcha! But what a way to make an impression. She quickly befriends them and much more than that with Jake.
Weird things start to happen on the first day of her job and get creepier from there. People in her life suddenly start dropping like flies. Is she the cause? Are people dying because of her and if so, who's next? Corey fears for her daughter, Molly's life. She would do anything to protect her little girl.
Jake is always there for Corey, even if he doesn't believe her at first about the strange things that keep happening. But it seems the person stalking the woman he loves is closer than anyone thinks.
This was a very good book! It kept me coming back wanting to finish it. I thought I had it all figured out until about halfway through and then realized, there has to be more to this. It's just too easy. And I was right! And oh, man! I did not expect the ending. I began to put two and two together just before Corey but did NOT want to believe it. And that's all I'm gonna say! Must read this book! Some typos and the like, but not enough to deter me from the overall flow of the story.
I give it 4 1/2 out of 5 skull and crossbones
