Izzy is a photographer and to help a little girl she's one of the people who are putting together a calendar. Trent is one of the firefighters she has to photograph, which means they have to work together. Will this mean another chance for Trent to convince Izzy they're meant for each other or will his job remain an obstacle Izzy can't overcome?
Saved by the Firefighter is an emotional story about two people who clearly belong together. Izzy and Trent have both lost so much and they know what it's like to grieve. In their young lives they've been through a lot already and the question is if they can handle more. Izzy is sweet and talented, but she's also guarded. She has her walls firmly in place and it's difficult for Trent to break them down. He's a kindhearted man and when he's given someone his heart this person has it for life. I liked that about him. It's obvious from the start that Trent and Izzy have a physical as well as an emotional connection. It was interesting to read about this unusual couple and I couldn't wait to find out what would happen to them.
Rachel Brimble writes about the risks of dangerous professions in an honest and empathic way. I could understand Izzy's reluctance to give her heart to someone who's risking his life every day. I also felt sad for Trent, because it was obvious how much love he has to give and Izzy isn't sure if she should or can receive it. Their game of pushing and pulling is based on a solid thought-provoking reason. It made me think about truly living, fear, love and loss. Some decisions are hard to make, no matter what the outcome will be.
Saved by the Firefighter is sometimes sad, but it's also hopeful. I loved the idea of the calendar and was immediately interested because of Izzy's passion for her work. Rachel Brimble shows her readers that true love will always prevail and I loved the way she used this theme to write about two main characters who are struggling with this. Her writing is vivid and easy to read and I enjoyed the loving way she writes about Templeton Cove, it's a wonderful place to read about. I like this amazing series very much.
With plenty of angst, ups and downs, a sexy calendar and a celebrity visitor, SAVED BY THE FIREFIGHTER by Rachel Brimble is a romance worth reading. While I must admit that Izzy got on my nerves sometimes and I really felt sorry for Trent, SAVED BY THE FIREFIGHTER by Rachel Brimble shows the complexity of grief, and how letting love in can make for a brighter future.
*I voluntarily reviewed this book for the author
Photographer Izzy Cooper is basically living her life in a cloud as she tries to overcome the enormous grief she is suffering over losing her brother. She’s already pushed away family and friends, but the one guy who isn’t willing to give up on her is the one that she treats the worst. She knows it’s irrational to blame him, but she does it anyway.
Firefighter Trent Palmer wishes he could have saved his best friend and Izzy’s brother the day of the accident, but he was gone before they even arrived on the scene. He just wants to be there for Izzy and to have her want to have a relationship with him again.
Will working together on this calendar shoot be what will bring them back together?
I really enjoyed this book. It was a sweet romance, but it was more than that. It was trying to find you way back to the world after something that could destroy you. The way that you see what Izzy goes through this book. The anger, the loss, the way she found her way back at the end was all you can always ask for. Sometimes you wonder how you can love life again when you think everything was taken from you. You think how can you love someone you could lose in a blink of an eye. You see all these struggles and more. You see Trent try to be everything to Izzy, but it doesn't seem to be enough at times, but that's where Izzy grows in this book. You see step by step what happens the steps Izzy takes to find her way back to life. That is what all someone can do, find their way. I love seeing life how it moves on even when you don't want it to. How it effects everyone around you, just not you. The after affects don't always show what happens to everyone, but with this book it did. How everyone is trying to find their way. It shows so much depth throughout and how everyone's choices effect more than just that person.
I could give you a rundown of all the characters and how I loved them and how wonderful they are, but I am not going too. I'm going to tell you to read this book. See how you can find yourself back after tragedy and how love is the best way to heal your heart after it has been broken. The author did that with this book and I can only tell you I can't wait to read more from this author.
