It's not a long story so there wasn't a huge amount of time for the relationship to build, then to have a huge falling out, and then patch things up so I was very pleased to see that Ms James spent a majority of the story on building the relationship between Blake and Willow and giving us readers a chance to get to know them and feel the passion between them. Oh and is there passion! Hot doesn't event touch it. I won't tell you what the fallout is but I will tell you that what happens after it is epic. Probably my favorite scene in the book.
The characters, as always with Ms James' books, were well developed, unique, and easy to love and the story flowed easily and grabbed from the first page. Great job Ms James!
This was a quick read, lasting only a couple hours. I thought this was a fun read. However, when comparing it to the Rough Riders books by Ms. James, the love story wasn't nearly as consuming and addictive, I think because it is told so quickly. This could be read as a standalone, but I think the story is richer if read in the context of knowing about the McKay cousins (who star in the Rough Riders books). In the Rough Riders books, the McKays all have roles and plots in the story line. In this book, since Blake is in a distant town, he only mentions the McKay cousins, but you don't actually meet them.
If you want some back story on Blake, I would advise reading Rough Riders book number 6, Branded as Trouble before reading Miss Firecracker. Unlike many reviewers, I believe the Rough Riders books can be read out of sequence, because that was what I did. I read one of the later books, fell in love with the McKay/West family and the Rough Riders series, and have since read most of the Rough Riders books. There is another West boy story, Mistress Christmas that occurs chronologically before Miss Firecracker. I read the West boy books out of sequence, and feel that it is fine to read Miss Firecracker without reading Mistress Christmas. Though, Mistress Christmas is so good, I think you'd enjoy reading that one. If you would like both stories in a paper format, check out the book Wild West Boys, it contains Mistress Christmas and Miss Firecracker. I've read most of the books about the McKay/West family, so if you're curious you can read more about them in my other reviews.
