WHY I READ IT
Because KC Lynn was writing about a hot firefighter! It’s really as simple as that.
WHAT I RATED IT
WHAT IT’S ABOUT
Cockloft: A firefighter term used as a structural space above ceiling and below rafters, often connecting adjacent occupancies and permitting fire to spread laterally, often unseen.
Gabriel Martinez is the most arrogant and infuriating man I’ve ever met. He has a knee-weakening smirk that makes me want to kiss—no—slap it off his rude, sexy face. Judging by his ego, you’d think the hose in his pants is as big as the one on his fire truck. Not that I know anything about that nor do I want to. Nope, not at all. He’s already been forgotten like last season’s Michael Kors.
CeCe Kensington is as pretentious and spoiled as they come. The ridiculous purses she shoulders around are as big as her attitude. And don’t get me started on her mile-long legs or full, glossy lips that are meant to be wrapped around a guy’s… If she only knew the dirty things I think about doing to that sassy mouth of hers, she’d be hightailing it back to her side of town.
When the beautiful boutique owner and sexy firefighter meet in the most unlikely situation, their two worlds collide, creating an explosion of misperceptions and combustible heat, trapping them in a fire they never saw coming.
Fun, flirty, and full of humor this book was the perfect summer read. KC Lynn knocked it out of the park when she took a small detour from her usual heavily emotional books to write one that touched both the heart and the funny bone.
This book grabbed my attention from the start and it was a struggle to make myself slow down (though I did read it all in one sitting!) because the storyline was just too good to miss! It was light and fun with just a little bit of that deeply emotional writing we’re use to from KC thrown in. While I love the direction she went with this book there were several spots were I felt like the subject was glossed over or could have just been explored more.
There was a large assortment of characters in this book and they fit together seamlessly. Complementing one another and just making for a really good character dynamic throughout the entire book. CeCe was perfection and Gabe was the perfect mix of broody and sweet.
All and all this book was a great read for fans of KC or readers new to her work.
