Ever since Jack protected Samantha from a high school bully, the two have been friends. But she wants more from the sexy firefighter. Too bad Jack has always seen her as the shy sweet girl, who can’t stand up for herself.
She can’t resist his boyish smile when he stops by the bakery for coffee. Or stop herself from bringing baked goods to the fire station.
It’s time to prove she’s all grown up and can take care of herself.
And show him, she’s done being friends
This was an extremely sweet novel. Samantha and Jack make such a cute couple. Justin was a great antagonist and the friends were such a positive force, it was impossible to not love them.
I was also definitely not expecting a mystery or a (kind of) love triangle. Both made it a more meaty read than one normally finds in a sweet contemporary romance like this one.
