Firefighter Morgan has worked hard to build a home for himself after a nomadic childhood. When Morgan is called to a fire, he finds the family out front, but their tenant still inside. He rescues Richard Smalley, who turns out to be an old friend he hasn’t seen in years and the one person he regretted leaving behind.
Richard has had a hard life. He served in the military, where he lost the use of his legs, and has been struggling to make his way since coming home. Now that he no longer has a place to live, Morgan takes him in, but when someone attempts to set fire to Morgan’s house, they both become suspicious and wonder what’s going on.
Years ago Morgan was gutted when he moved away, leaving Richard behind, so he’s happy to pick things up where they left off. But now that Richard seems to be the target of an arsonist, he may not be the safest person to be around.
Andrew Grey is wonderful for giving us both stories with a heart as well as characters who aren’t always “the norm”. I love his hurt/comfort books and Morgan and Richard’s story is full of all that and more.
I’m not a huge fan of second chance romances because I love that first meeting so much, but this was done really well.
Michael Pauley does a great job with the narration and is an easy voice to listen to as well as clearly understanding the use of pacing and emotion to help bring these guys to life for the listener.
Highly recommended for fans of the author, the narrator and fans of second chance/hurt/comfort romances – with fire fighters!
