From The Inferno (Firemen Do It Better Book 3) by Leah Sharelle
Chase Brennan’s life came crashing down on the fateful night his daughter was brutally taken from him.
After following the wrong road for some time, the qualified firefighter, who had never given up that ‘the one’ was just around the corner and would one day find him, returned to the living.
What he didn’t know was how she would appear in his life and just how fast and hard he would fall.
Jamie Lawrence was the darling of the Australian tennis circuit.
For years, she did as she was told, smiled when she had to, and played to win so her parents and coach could live the lifestyle they wanted.
They didn’t care what she wanted or that she was unhappy playing the game she once loved. After a scary altercation that left her running for her life, Jamie hid her celebrity status and landed in a town where her happily ever after was waiting for her.
Would her well-meant game of secrecy, pretending to be someone she wasn’t, lose her the man who made her heart beat faster with just one touch?
Could their love survive the inferno and be ‘game, set, match’ in love?
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
Book 2 in this series left me a quivering pile of tears. I thought I was prepared for this one, knew from previous books that this author brings out strong emotions, and that I’d better keep the tissues handy. But when I was crying by the end of the first chapter, I couldn’t help but think “What have I gotten myself into?!?” But I kept going, knowing that no matter how emotional I got, it would be worth it in the end, because this author never fails to deliver a book that is both entertaining, and meaningful.
Chase lost his entire world in one night, from circumstances so tragic, so horrible, it left him a shell of his former self. But through it all, he kept up his hope that love, and a life filled with family, were in his future. One look at Jamie proved his waiting was worth it.
Jamie’s dream turned into a nightmare. Those that she should have been able to count on and trust, became devils in disguise. Her only choice was to run away, and try to scrape up a new life for herself. She stumbled onto everything she was missing, friends, family, and love.
This book, while still very emotional, also had plenty of good feelings to balance it out. There was an overall feeling of hope that left me a very happy reader. Jamie and Chase, together, are such a beautiful couple, absolutely perfect for each other, and their story left me with tears, and a huge smile! I couldn’t help but fall in love with them, and their story!
