As fire chief and head of emergency management, Avery Sparks has become the master at handling anything that borders on chaotic... except her love life. Years ago on graduation night she indulged in a little one night hook-up with her friend Jake Mitchell, then he left without looking back. Avery on the other hand stayed behind, and has created a good life for herself, one she has no plans of changing, she has everything she could possibly want in Chance, Nebraska... well except maybe love. But the minute Jake returns home for their high school reunion, the sparks between them start to fly, and mother nature isn't about to let these two off so easy this time!
Jake Mitchell loves what he does, being a leader in natural disaster recovery give him the opportunity to help people and gives him a sense of purpose like nothing else ever could. He likes that it allows him to travel, never really putting down roots anywhere, which totally feeds into his restless spirit. He doesn't really do relationships, or love, mainly because he gave his heart away a long time ago, then made the mistake of walking away. Now for the first time in his life he is going to have to face that mistake when he returns home for his high school reunion, and what he finds waiting there for him, has him wanting things he thought he would... to stay!
This read was unlike anything I have read, I have to say it was quite refreshing to step out of my comfort zone and read something a little different for a change. I thoroughly enjoyed my time with these two their disastrous little adventure proved to be very entertaining, and gave me a serious case of the feels!! This was my first book from this author and I have to say it left a pretty good first impression. I highly recommend you give this one a try it is sure to tap into your emotions and leave you with a happy heart!!
