Resisting a gorgeous firefighter bent on seduction could prove the ultimate challenge.
Firefighter Rob McConnell doesn’t believe in love at first sight, until he meets Sierra Lawson and his common sense goes up in flames. The woman sets his heart alight the instant he meets her, and he could swear the feeling is mutual. But Sierra has one rule that makes a relationship between them unworkable—she doesn’t date firefighters. Still, Rob thinks the spark between them deserves an opportunity to grow and he’ll use every seductive talent he has to convince Sierra to take a chance on love.
Sierra doesn’t believe in taking chances. Her late fiancé took them on the job as a cop and wound up dead. Knowing she can’t go through that kind of heartache again, Sierra vows never to date another man in a dangerous profession. But when hunky firefighter Rob bursts into her life, her list of rules looks set to burn up like dry kindling. The man is temptation personified. An affair seems inevitable.
Guarding her heart? Impossible.
We first meet Rob in Burning Up. I’m always sad when a story starts with a threesome and someone winds up left out in the end so I was happy to see Rob get his woman. In Burning Up Rob came across as fairly naive, but in Giving Off Sparks he is a changed man. He knows what he wants and goes straight after it. Once Rob sees Sierra that’s the end of it, he has to have her. After Sierra lost her fiance she is too scared to really let herself love again. She has a hard time fighting her attraction to Rob. She decides to let go and be with him, but only allows herself to be with him for short time. This was a short and sweet story-plenty of heat too though! I really enjoyed seeing Rob get a happy ending (in more ways than one!). I hope Sami plans on writing more in this series.
