Story Overview:
If a tree falls in Bluewater Bay . . . could it be fate?

A year after his divorce, Shane Andrews isn’t interested in dating—not that he has time, between three kids and a demanding job as a grip. When a windstorm knocks a tree onto one of the Wolf’s Landing soundstages, Shane’s there to help with the mess . . . and so is firefighter Aaron Tucker.

A former smoke jumper, Aaron’s an adrenaline junkie and way too restless and reckless to be relationship material. As far as he’s concerned, monogamy is for penguins, and he’d rather be alone than tied down. Signing up to be a stepparent? No, thank you.

But after a scorching-hot night together, they’re hooked. Aaron is a taste of the excitement Shane’s been lacking, and Shane’s pushing buttons Aaron didn’t know he had. The more they’re together, the less Aaron craves wild nights with other men . . . but the more Shane wants to play the field like he never got to in his twenties.

This could be the love neither man knew he needed, but only if Shane gets his feet back on the ground before Aaron walks away.

My Review:
I really enjoyed this book, although I read it during a crazy week, so it took me four days to get through it. It just made me enjoy the story more because I truly got to immerse myself into the details of the story. 

I liked these guys just because they are both older, although they don't really want to accept the reality of that. Aaron has lived the life of a single, go-lucky, adrenaline junkie. Shane got a girl pregnant at the age of eighteen, so he's always had the responsibility. He's never had the chance to be the happy go lucky guy that Aaron has had. But now that his kids are older and he has his second divorce under his belt, he no longer wants serious relationships. Been there, done that, sucks at that. He's just at a point where he wants to have fun. Aaron is willing to do that with him especially since the sex is so incredibly hot. 

The book was interesting. Shane is a monogamous guy. That's just his default, no matter that he doesn't want a serious relationship. He has to fight against that almost this entire book. That isn't the type of relationship these two guys have. Aaron sure isn't going to accept to being tied down to a guy with three kids. He's not a person who would be okay stepping into a ready-made family. 

So both guys are automatically rebelling against the idea of a relationship, although they settle into that in reality pretty quickly. These guys are just really in sync. They work together and their chemistry is fantastic. They balance one another out really well. 

Overall, I thought this book was a great addition to this series. I love this series so much and love that I can jump in and out of the series depending on how much the book appeals to me. This story was a definite recommend from me.  

I received a complimentary copy of this book in return for an honest review.
