Grady Malone is a hot, sexy firefighter with 8 pack abs and a heart of gold. He is every woman’s wet dream. Two years ago he lost his best buddy and has been fighting his demons and the nightmares that haunt him ever since.
Dylan is a sweet, feisty, hardworking, talented songwriter. She was betrayed by her ex-boyfriend and left him without looking back. She travels to Sunnyville to finish writing songs for the album she was contracted to do. Dylan needs a place to stay so her brother asks Grady to put her up for a couple of months. They are buddies and Grady is happy to do it. Grady works 24 hour shifts so they won’t be seeing much of each other, or will they?
Dylan and Grady both have different demons they fight on a daily basis, but when they are together, the attraction is electric. Is Grady willing to let go of his baggage to see where it leads, or are they destined to stay in the “Friend Zone” forever. His father once told him “fear everything and run, or face everything and rise.”
I loved this book. It pulls at your emotions as Dylan and Grady each fight their own set of fears and insecurities. I laughed at the interactions between the brothers, swooned as the dance began between Dylan and Grady, smiled as she comforted him when he opened up, and cried as Dylan fought through the guilt and loss while trying to come to terms with his emotions. This is such a well-rounded story that you can picture it unfolding in your mind page by page.
Fall in love with Grady and Dylan's story. I just did.
Grady despises his external scars, but he ignores those on the inside. Neither, of course, is healthy for him, and he largely is unaware that those wounds he can't see cause more pain than those he can. Despite his unwillingness to acknowledge his pain, he immediately senses the scars Dylan bears, even though they are not visible on the outside. He understands her agonies and battles because he can relate to them. He knows what it's like to feel physically flawed, and he knows what it's like to feel defective. He doesn't want Dylan to suffer those feelings, even as he believes he must suffer his own.
I know I'm making this book sound emotionally dense, but it isn't. Bromberg knows how to pace her story, giving you lighter moments and some fabulous sexy times. You get to see Grady with his brothers (you get more of Grant, along with wife Emerson, whom you met in Cuffed), and you get to see the humor in his verbal tussles with Dylan. Bromberg's message may be heavy, but she doesn't deliver it in a heavy-handed manner.
Rather, she condenses it down to this simple quote from Grady's father:
"Fear has two meanings, son. Forget everything and run. Or face everything and rise.
Rise, Bromberg exhorts. You must rise. This is a lesson Grady and Dylan have to learn.
We meet the second Malone brother, Grady, in this story. A firefighter, sexy, witty, with a big heart. I realize those are just words but wait until you really get to meet him and you'll see exactly what I mean! So much more than words. In fact, I absolutely adore the closeness of this whole Malone family; the banter, the unending support they give each other, the love.
And Dylan...I just loved her! A songwriter strapped to her famous, self absorbed ex by contract. And this, after she found him cheating in the worst way possible. She's beautiful, expressive, strong, and giving. She's definitely a match for our firefighter.
The synopsis will give you the overview of the story, but it's so much more. The book is so well written. The characters are alive with every word. And as I've come to expect with every book from this author, she drags me through every emotion. Uplifting highs to devastating lows and everything in between, I dare you not to feel them all! I wish I could give it a zillion stars.
