Get it at Amazonfrom our DIK review: Dabney: Honestly, the true love story in this is that between Cassie and her mom. I can not tell you how much this story moved me. Just thinking about it now makes my heart squeeze. Everything about that relationship is so lovely and powerful. And again, Cassie, her mom (and her dad) all made huge mistakes in the past, moves that pushed them apart and deeply hurt them. The way those relationships are portrayed and how those wounds are healed is utterly and beautifully believable. Kristen: I wondered if your mother heart would just explode over that, because my daughter one did. My mother is also a reader, so as soon as I finished this I pre-ordered it for her because I want to talk to her about it! So, for me, this is an A. I recommend it unabashedly for anyone who loves fiction, who believes humans have the capacity to change, and who could use some time in someone else’s life. It’ll be a strong contender for my top ten list for sure. Dabney: We haven’t talked about it much but I assure romance readers that the romance in this is a good one. Cassie and “the rookie” are a fab couple--they are believable as firefighters, friends, lovers, and co-workers. I don’t want to say too much about the path they forge but it’s a good one full of heat and humor. Which reminds me, this book is funny in all the best ways. This is an A for me too. Readers who love Kristan Higgins-esque fiction will love this as will, I bet, readers everywhere.
