Blurb: Firefighter Logan Halliwell doesn’t have much time for romance. A relentless work-life-balance and an expensive divorce have sucked the festive cheer from his days. All he wants is to be a good dad. A fun dad. Especially at Christmas.
He doesn’t know how lonely he is until he meets Remy Collins, a gorgeous fire dancer at a sultry summer festival.
Their instant connection blows his mind, but their fleeting encounter is over before Logan can catch his breath. One kiss and they’re strangers again. That wicked brush of lips nothing but a dream.
Long months pass. Then fate brings them together again at the summit of Firefly Hill, and absence has only strengthened the current thrumming between them. The heat. The precious chance of true happiness they both so desperately need.
Only fear stands in their way.
And Logan’s dangerous job.
It takes a tough lesson and a dose of winter magic to learn that loving each other means Christmas all year round.
Review: Logan Halliwell and Remy Collins meet by chance at a summer festival, but while a spark ignites between them, and their chemistry is, without a doubt, on fire—not that Garrett Leigh would ever offer her readers anything less—their romance doesn’t start there. Or, at least it doesn’t continue from there. An inconvenient interruption while Logan is on duty marshalling the fire show in which Remy is performing cuts short a blistering kiss that will go on to haunt their dreams and star in their fantasies for months after.
Until necessity and the whims of chance reunite them.
Remy is as down on his luck as he’s ever been and now that winter’s come, he needs a place to work—not to mention sleep. The answer to his needs comes in a rental ad for an outbuilding up on Firefly Hill, and a bit of bargaining gets him the place on better terms than he could’ve ever hoped for. And, as synchronicity would have it, the house just down the hill from the workshop happens to be where Logan lives, although Remy doesn’t know that when he accepts Uncle Marr’s offer. It doesn’t take long for them to reconnect, though, and no more than a look to realize that the spark from the summer, all that pent up want, is not only still there, but could easily turn into an inferno.
“Whatever happens, don’t try and rescue me.”
Rescuing people defines an integral part of Logan’s profession. He’s a firefighter. Saving folks comes with the job. Understanding that Remy doesn’t need or want to be rescued leaves Logan fighting one of his most basic instincts. He’s a protector, but his life is also wicked complicated. Coparenting his twin sons with his ex-wife takes no small amount of effort, not because he doesn’t love his sons dearly and want to do his best for them but because the unpredictability of his job, which is why he’s divorced, runs him ragged. Watching Logan try to be all things and everywhere at once so as not to let his boys down was more than a little heart-wrenching.
There’s a bit of hurt/comfort in this story that adds to its overall loveliness in the way both Logan and Remy are there for each other when the going gets tough. It’s their chemistry, though, and the way Remy fits so seamlessly into Logan’s life that makes them a family once they understand loving each other is worth any risk. If you need more fire puns, I can say these two men are utterly combustible together. Christmas on Firefly Hill is sweet, warm, and homey. It’s full of love and family, and, of course, it wouldn’t be a story about a firefighter without a bit of danger involved. I loved how it was handled and appreciated the little twist to it that Garrett Leigh surprised me with. This book deserves a big sloppy ::chef’s kiss::
