Series: Everyday Heroes #2
Songwriter Dylan McCoy has been burned.
By her boyfriend she found in her bed . . . with someone else.
By the contract she signed that obligates her to work with him until the songs for his new album are complete.
By her agent when she asked Dylan to keep their breakup on the down-low.
When she finds herself in Sunnyville, she refuses to let her new roommate burn her too. Still . . . a rebound has never looked so good.
That’s her first thought when she sees firefighter Grady Malone.
Sexy. Charismatic. Unapologetic. He’s a man who carries his own scars-the ones on his back, the survivor’s guilt on his soul, and the fear in his heart.
When an unexpected visitor puts their roommate status to the test, will their undeniable attraction burn out, or will they both take a chance and play with fire?
Well i had forgotten the gist of the series to be honest, couldn’t pinpiont what the first book was around, but hearing all the hints about cops, and Emerson being a sky diving instructor, and well i have figured it all out.
so what we have here in book 2 is a sweet story about Grady – brother #2 in the family who is a firefighter, fighting the demons of the loss of his partner 2 years ago during a fire. Definitely a tough situation for everyone and he blames himself because he wasn’t able to save Drew. mind you, Grady also had some dire injuries himself so it’s not like he could be blamed.
Then there’s Dylan, a songwriter from LA who has just had her heart broken by her boyfriend Jett – a guy who’s a major music star and sensation. Jett cheated on Dylan and for who knows how long. So the challenge that Dylan now faces is that her record label won’t let her out of their deal so she has to write the songs for Jett’s album as much as she doesn’t want to, and so she finds the opportunity to get out of LA to do it, and ends up moving into Grady’s house – out of the help of her brother who’s friends with Grady.
The story we have from there is one of two very damaged people, who of course find themselves attracted to one another but neither is in a place to even be half human to the other so it’s an uphill battle for sure. We don’t really know how long it’s going to take for each to realize that there’s something there between them, and then the next amount of time to act. What we do see though is the pushing of parents, friends, brothers, basically everyone else around them to get them to see what is in front of their face.
It’s honestly not until Jett appears out of no where to come and try to win Dylan back that progress is made and the story from there starts to pick up pace. We see how interesting the chemistry is between Grady and dylan, even with all their insecurities and ghosts. Their chemistry though is off the charts, it’s hot and steamy and written in true fashion of our author – you can’t quite get enough.
The journey continues, and there are so many ups and downs that you know it’s not going to be easy. Dylan of course has to go back to LA once her songs are all written and Grady has his life in Sunnyville so it’s going to be tough, and i don’t know what or who will have to come in their way again to make them realize that maybe it’s worth the fight. All the reason to read on i suppose. Enjoy!
