Natasha Mills feels like she’s loved firefighter Sam Waters her entire life. Since she first met him during middle school, she’s harbored a secret crush on her best friend’s big brother. It’s just something she lives with every day—too bad he doesn’t notice her. To Sam, Tash is his little sister’s best friend and that’s it.
Disaster strikes the Waters family, leaving Sam’s sister and her husband dead, and their young children in the hands of Sam and Natasha. Suddenly, these two are navigating the loss of people they loved, while trying to figure out parenthood together. The grief is devastating, and raising twins is harder than either of them bargained for. But in working together, and leaning on each other, Sam and Tash learn that family comes in all different shapes and sizes.
The more time he spends with Natasha though, the more Sam realizes just how sweet and sexy she really is. He finds himself slowly but surely falling for her. But when the time comes for him to let her go—will he be able to walk away from the family he’s helped build?

Not my first read by the author, and I’ve read a lot and it’s been a 50/50 shot for me with her books. Lately the % in my favor went up, including this read. I had minor hang up’s on this but in the over-all I really enjoyed the read, story line and characters.
It’s a rather painful one. The hero and heroine have history, and when they both lose something they both love, it’s a uphill battle. Because not only do they have to figure out each other but 2 other humans. Thrown into a situation, but making the beat of it. Or trying to. The Hero is dream-worthy, smart, handsome, sweet, loyal and definitely a man who makes mistakes but learns. The heroine is a feisty, sweet and beautiful woman who has a lot happened in a short time and a lot thrown at her that she is unfamiliar with. I enjoyed watching these two come together as well as on their own. Tear jerker on this, very honest characters so blunt and just upfront. Great story line and read, looking forward to more in this series!!
