Otto: 

Seth Walker was my first love and I always swore he'd be my last. Even after he moved away our senior year in high school, we vowed to reunite after graduation. But when he suddenly broke things off without explanation and crushed my heart, it was my turn to run. 

After a decade in the navy, I've finally come home ready to move on with my life as Hobie's newest firefighter. Unfortunately, the minute I set eyes on the new sheriff in town, I know I'm screwed. Hobie's top cop is none other than Seth Walker. 

Turns out, he's come home too. And hell if he doesn't have a lot of explaining to do. 

Walker: 

I thought I was doing the right thing when I walked away from Otto Wilde 10 years ago without an explanation. I was wrong. I also thought I could come back home without having to face my past mistakes. I was wrong about that too. 

What I'm not wrong about: The fact that my heart catches fire every time I set eyes on the sexy man. The fact that I can't imagine my life without him. The fact that things are still just as complicated now as they were then. And the fact that I have a lot of work ahead of me if I expect to win him back. 

Just when things start heating up between us again, a serial arsonist strikes and suspicion falls close to home. I already lost Otto to a secret long ago but I'll be damned if I let another threaten to send our future up in smoke. 

Because Otto Wilde is mine, and I don't plan on ever letting him go again. 

Each novel in the Forever Wilde series can be heard on its own or as part of the series. Fair warning, there will be nekkid man parts touching, meddling patriarchs, sweet second-chance love themes, and a dearly departed donkey named Debbie Gibson.

My Review:
Overall: 4.75
Performance: 4.5
Story: 4.75

I think this is my favorite book that I've read from Lucy Lennox so far. This one was so good, but you know...a sheriff and a fireman...that's pretty much a sure-bet kind of combination, right?

Okay...so this story...all is not what it seems when the story begins. Seth and Otto have a history. It's a deep and serious history...but things blew up between them and they went their separate ways. BUT the emotions NEVER ended. 

The book is one big suspense novel about what the heck happened that split them apart and what exactly is going on now...because despite their deep levels of commitment between them, there are also a lot of things going unsaid. Reading as fast as possible to find out those things is what makes this story a great read. 

It's also a great read just because of these two guys. Despite all the chaos in their lives, they are utterly committed to one another and that is such a good thing, because these two are PERFECT with each other. I loved them both so, so much.

There's also a real suspense line happening in the background that was actually pretty good. It kept me guessing. 

I definitely recommend this whole series, but if you're only going to read one of these books, make it this one. You won't regret it.
