In the blink of an eye, Aubrey Steven’s life has been forever changed. Still reeling from the devastating blow, she vows to herself that she will not let anyone in. She will protect herself, even if that means missing out on her one chance at true love.
Noah Davis knows just how precious life is. His job as a firefighter shows him every day that you shouldn’t take life for granted. He thought he was living a full life until he met Aubrey. Now she’s consumed his entire life with one chance meeting.
When Aubrey is pushed to her breaking point, will she push Noah away or will she take comfort in him? Will Noah fight for her and their newfound love. Can he show her that love is worth taking a chance on? Or will they watch their love go up in smoke?
We have Aubrey who is dealing with the fact that her father is dying of cancer. Aubrey is the rock and support system of her family. She doesn't have time for relationships. One night while out with her best friend, Kennedy, she meets Noah who happens to be a firefighter. They hit it off but she won't let it go any further. They reconnect later on and decide to just be friends. Noah wants more but Aubrey can't commit which is understandable. After wards they decided they can't just be friends and give it a shot. This relationship moved way too fast for me. I have a very hard time with insta-love stories. Some people love them but I prefer the slow build and feeling that connection. In this book I couldn't feel that connection. The storyline with her father made the book for me. Those scenes were touching and did make me emotional. There is one scene in particular that you will need tissues. My heart broke. I also enjoyed the secondary characters Kennedy and Grayson. I'm hoping the next book will be about them! Overall, the writing was good, the story had a good flow. The plot kept me interesting. This author has a lot of potential and for a debut novel this wasn't bad at all!
I have loved books for as long as I can remember. And I have always wanted to be a published author. I am working on my first Contemporary Romance Novel. It will be the first standalone in a series of 4 books. I can't wait to share them with you! :)
