Blurb: Aaron Evans embodies every complication Wren Tucker knows he doesn’t need. The tempting go-go dancer refuses to leave him alone and his attempts to get into Wren’s bunker pants don’t stop at the club–even the walls of the Firehouse aren’t safe. Wren’s control is only so strong, and his desire for Aaron is turning into a clawing need that’s digging through the many reasons keeping Aaron at bay.
Aaron is two cold showers away from hypothermia if the hot fireman of his dreams won’t give in to the lust he sees blazing in Wren’s eyes. The only issue is, Wren is a forever man, and Aaron doesn’t have that in him to give, not with so many secrets locked behind the glitter and gold of his beautiful world.
As Wren begins to cave to Aaron’s delicious demands, he gets a deeper view of the tarnished landscape Aaron exists in. A murky pit of drug addiction that’s slowly dragging Aaron under, and Wren is going to have to fight like hell to save Aaron from it, to even have a chance at a new beginning with the man who brought him out of the shadows.
Review: I held out on reading this series, wasn’t going to do it, but pretty much every time I went on Facebook, someone was commenting about it or recommending it, so I gave in and got the first book. And then, later that night, I bought the second book…and then the third, so you get the picture. I love this series.
I was so happy to get Wren and Aaron’s story, and it definitely took a different turn than I was expecting. They were so sweet together, but I think you get a little bit of everything with this book. It’s not only sweet but sexy, angsty, happy and sad—it pretty much took me across the board. I thought there were some situations in the book that maybe weren’t the most realistic scenarios, but honestly, unless it’s crazy-over-the-top (and even sometimes then), it is a book, and I am usually using it to escape reality. So, as long as it flows with the story, I am alright with it, and in this case, until I saw other comments it didn’t really even cross my mind.
The only issue I really did have with any of the books in this series, including this one, is that I wish they were longer…not because the story isn’t complete but I just want more…so, not really an issue with the book. I’m greedy and love the series that much!
