This was an interesting read, kinda angsty and with much drama. The writing style was engaging and the return to young love premise is one that I enjoy. There were also many manly firefighters. Noice! It is set in a small town and there is just something about this that really appeals to me. I love that feeling of community it engenders and that there is the possibility of more books in the series as you get glimpses of other characters lives.
I enjoyed the read but got about two thirds the way through and it was like the author got a bit lost. The sex scenes were hot but peppered with very anatomically correct words that totally yoinked me out of the moment. Not sure I want to read something that sounds like it was written by my Year 11 science teacher. The plot meandered a little at this point and flowed less seamlessly than it had earlier in the book. Also, certain facets of one character meant I found it pretty difficult to suspend my disbelief, with regards his lack of experience. It gets back on track though and despite some of the problems I had, the book on the whole was a not a bad wee read. Certainly an author to keep an eye on! The cover is also VERY pretty and created by the tremendously clever Anne Cain. Definitely got my attention!
