Again, I love, love, LOVE every other book in this series and think this author is awesome. This one just didn't work for me. I wish it did.
Light the Lamp is the story of Liam Kallen and Noelle Payne. Liam has recently been traded to the Storm and is still mourning the death of his wife, who was killed in a freak accident months before. He meets Noelle on the side of the road when she is having car trouble and convinces her to come with him while she figures out what to do next. Noelle is living in her car at the time, and minutes after she rides off with Liam, her car is involved in another incident and she loses everything except the clothes on her back. Because of the specter of his wife's death, Liam feels compelled to take care of her.
My problem with this book is that I felt neither of the main characters were very relatable. Noelle especially was annoying and difficult to like. She is depicted as free spirited and absent minded, and I just couldn't figure out what these two saw in each other.
Problem # 1 - any book where the H is pining for his dead wife for most of the book is a real killer for me. I cannot pretend to understand that kind of grief but I read romance to get away from reality for a bit.
Problem # 2 - the h running away from the H killed the book for me. He had bent over backwards for her and she knew his reasons. They'd only known each other for a week and she expected him to be fully in love with her and over his wife in such a short period. I am not contradicting myself btw, because one needs to be reasonable about the H dealing with his feelings and one week isn't enough. That said I didn't want to read about his pining for the majority of the book.
Other than that the h was flighty and a bit silly and I didn't really take to her much. I don't know where this author is going with her female leads but I wish she'd make them a bit more likeable.
