Dax's father Rowdy had befriended Ava when she was pregnant & alone. He had her move into his house as a "form of a foster" daughter to give her a hand up. She's now a respected teacher with a young daughter. She's looked down on Dax for his attitude but still is drawn to him. When tragedy struck, will it pull them together or push them apart? The chemistry is there but can it develop into more?
Shannyn Leah has done it again. The story pulled me in from the beginning & quickly tapped into my emotions. I cried! I actually sobbed through several chapters & used multiple tissues. I loved the idea that Olivia, Ava's daughter, has these rough, tough mechanics wrapped around her finger. It was a sweet side that generally isn't portrayed but tugs your heart. I can't wait to see what Ms. Leah comes up with next.
The advance copy I read of this book was my first by this author, and I’m thrilled to have found her! This book had a little of everything – romance, chemistry, humor, suspense, twists and turns, and gut-wrenching emotion. I fell head over heels for both of these main characters. They were amazingly realistic, well developed, complex and larger than life. Both strong and mature, yet vulnerable and uncertain. Both a little damaged and flawed, yet perfectly imperfect and so endearing. Dax is tough, protective, and just the right amount of cocky, and when he decides he wants Ava, he’s 100% in, and nothing will stand in his way. Ava is a wonderful mother and presents a calm, brave façade, but fear is always lurking and makes it difficult for her to trust and have faith.
This book is such a yo-yo of emotions, in the very best way. From the heartbreaking, devastating loss that had me saying, “No way! That did NOT just happen!!” to adorable Olivia, and loveable Sloan and Hawk, that had me laughing out loud, to twists and surprises that left my jaw hanging and my brain screaming “O. M. Gee!!” It ripped out my heart, then had me biting my nails, then left me with that full sense of contentment and a happy sigh at the end. It’s such a terrific story and I can’t wait to read more of the Bad Boys of Willow Valley! (*Gleefully rubs hands together in anticipation of Hawk’s story*)
One click this one now! You won’t be sorry. 😉
The author gives you a delightful story of romance with the dance that is old as time one step forward to steps back but as the song said nobody gets to far like that, this kind of dance can never last. Something or someone one will have to give or be broken before these two can work out what they rest of the world already knows. It is such a shame that so much has to be lost before these two face the facts that they should be together. When the tragedy strikes we the reader feel it all the way to our toes leaving us with big tears in our eyes wondering what the fall out will be. The author puts one heck of a twist on it but be prepared this will not be the first twist that will thow you for a loop. This is one author that knows how to grab your heart, rip it out and puts it back together again only to do it all over again.
What made this a 5 star read for me was the humor, teasing, heartbreak, love and the care they give to their family. All stand up and together fighting the wars as they come but with each new block they pull together making an unbeatable team. The way the book starts out with the teasing which gets a little out of hand really pulls the reader in making us smile and laugh as Rowdy walks in with his brand of humor that really gets us going. Olivia steals your heart acting so grow up but at the same time keeping her childhood innocents. She makes you smile and laugh at the things she does and said. How can you not love Charlie and all he means? He plays a big part right up to the end. The friends of Dax add so much to the read from one not thinking before he talks to the other trying to make him shut up. Bucky’s Bar is a delight from the trouble Dax gets in to the delightful things that happen there. The owner is just so full of his self you have to laugh.
There was only one character I didn’t care for and I am still unsure how he worked out who Olivia was from the youtube video. I would have liked to have known just what happen to him in detail from the trouble he caused. The author doesn’t go into detail on these issues and I felt more detail was needed. I also would have liked to have know more about Olivia and Kevin what he said to her and how she took finding things out. Beside that I totally was hook on this book and couldn’t put it down. I loved how the romance builds with each of them stepping around the issue to how head strong both were. When they do come together you can feel the fire come right off the pages. I liked how the author build the story around the firehouse, how it was hard to go back and just how each member was made to face the issues. It was a great story from start to finish and one I will read again. Lot of fun, heartbreak, learning and facing the past and the future makes this a win, win read for me. You can pre order this for just 99 cents. I can promise you it is well worth that and more.
