Parker Hoffstraeder is gorgeous, cocky, and totally irrational. He also broke my heart when he left town eleven years, four months, and twenty-eight days ago.
Not that I’m counting.
I don’t mind admitting it: I was young. I got burned. I learned my lesson.
But the guy swaggers back into O’Leary like he owns the damn place and suddenly I’m expected to welcome him to my town — to my life — like nothing’s changed?
Yeah, that I mind.
It’s only a matter of time until he’s gone again. And there’s no way I’ll give him a chance to take another piece of me when he goes.
Jameson Burke is the most arrogant, infuriating human on the planet. He’s also taller, broader, and impossibly hotter than he was before I left town.
But, whatever. It’s fine. I can handle it.
Coming back to O’Leary was supposed to be like coming home. I hadn’t realized that there’s no statute of limitations on how long your first love and former best friend is allowed to hate your guts, or how much bad luck can befall a person in a short time.
But, I can handle that, too… or at least pretend to.
When Jamie and I are thrown together in a blizzard, though, everything changes in the space of one single, scorching night. Suddenly, I’m dreaming of a future I can’t have, and he’s stuck in a past he can’t let go. It feels like we’re playing with fire…
And this time I’m the one who’s gonna burn.

The angst, miscommunication, and passion! Oh my, The Fire indeed!
The fire, the passion, the angst, good lord! This was an intense, highly charged ride! These two have a complex past and continue to let the past dictate their present. The have basically been in love with each other since they were teens and through disastrous and frustrating miscommunication they fight their connection so much so they appear to hate each other! This was one of those books where I wanted to strangle the characters and tell them to just talk to each other! There is so much back and forth, angst and passion, love and hate in this book that could have been solved or avoided by just being honest but then I guess it wouldn’t be such a gripping, frustratingly steamy read!
I loved these two together then they were honest and I liked how they ended up fighting for each other. The community rallying around them at the end was also so wonderful to see. I really enjoyed this ride and really do just Love O’Leary!!
