Masen Crisfield fell in love with Booth Jones when she was sixteen years old. Booth was the love of her life. The rock she needed to get her through the day. Then she rips his heart out while he’s deployed, leaving him wondering just what he’d done to warrant something so severe as a breakup that neither of them wanted.

Stubbornness is their middle name, and ten long years pass before either one of them try to breach the gap. Circumstances force Booth to come home, and within an hour of him being back in his hometown, there she is. Right back in the forefront of his mind where he knows she shouldn’t be.

The day he starts his first civilian job at Kilgore Fire Department, his worst fear of seeing Masen is realized. And not only does he see her, but he sees her with another man. A fellow firefighter that he has to trust with his life.

It soon becomes apparent that they are both still just as much in love with each other now as they were the moment they met. But there’s a problem. Booth’s married, and Masen’s in a committed relationship.

They fight the pull with everything they have, but they’re both about to learn the true meaning of flash point as the two of their lives crash together. Their love consuming everything in its path.

We first get introduced to Masen, she’s just endured a terrible lost one that has caused her to speak her mind to the man she loves. The words she shares with him are not kind ones and are words that put an end to their beautiful relationship.

Michael Jones aka “Booth” has just been spoken words he never thought he’d hear spoken. Hearing said words well away serving your country only cause a man to do one thing, Self Destruct! Booth is set on a path of self-destruction. The need to test his limits are extreme. As years pass and extreme measures in Booth’s career take a toll on him physically, he must return home. The one place where Mason still resides.

As the story progresses we learn so much more behind the terrible words that Mason spoke. We also learn some interesting facts that reveal that Booth himself was just a tad bit relieved to hear her speak them. One of my favorite OMG moments in the story had to be when Booth and Mason both revealed to one another that there had been no one else they had never been intimate with since they’d been apart. Mind you it has been over 8 years or so since they had last been together. That just had me so teary eyed and swooning. My not so favorite part was definitely Emily. Yes, I know it was not a real marriage but come on who sleeps naked in a mans bed huh! No sir that there was a NO! NO! I loved getting to see some Tai and Mia in the story but even better was Aaron “Fat Boy” I can’t wait for his story to come. This was definitely another great read and a must add to your TBR list. 


I’m a married mother of three. My kids are all under 5, so I can assure you that they are a handful. I’ve been with my paramedic husband now for ten years, and we’ve produced three offspring that are nothing like us. I live in the greatest state in the world, Texas.

Taima, a.k.a. Tai, is the last person people come to for help. He’s the fuck up…the bad boy…the guy that only looks out for himself.

Which couldn’t be further from the truth.

He’s fought hard to become the man he is today. He’s a hero in the public’s eye. A firefighter that the young all the way to the old turn to for help at the lowest point in their lives. What people don’t know, though, is that he’s no hero. He’s the reason his sister is dead, and he’ll spend the rest of his life trying to right that wrong. Then one split second decision has him coming face to face with Mia Darling. The woman changes his life, making him reevaluate everything he thought he had figured out, and showing him the tenderness he never knew he needed. Just like always, though, his luck runs out.

When the smoke settles, Mia’s gone, and Tai realizes there’s no way he can live the rest of his life without her. He’ll show her just how hard a bad boy will fight to get his woman back, and he’s not opposed to fighting dirty.
