Some flames can’t be extinguished…
Jason Burkwell is all about the next adventure. Whether it’s an emergency call as lieutenant on Redwood Ridge’s fire department or a pretty woman between the sheets, he gets in and gets out. He has no interest in being trapped by anything or anyone. But when he’s manipulated into a charity auction for his station, something tells him he’s about to get hosed. Especially when the town matchmakers shove quiet, shy Ella Sinclair in his path. Constantly. Every encounter with the brown-eyed beauty makes him realize the simmering attraction and strange tug of emotion is beyond basic heat. Together, they’re combustible. If only he can figure out what she’s hiding…
Ella Sinclair’s been burned before, and she’s got the scars to prove it. Ever since her return to Redwood Ridge, she’s had more than a little crush on a certain gorgeous firefighter. Except Jason doesn’t know she exists. To trigger his memory would mean reliving the worst day of her life, and she’s worked hard to move past the pain. Venturing out of her safety zone is tough enough, never mind that hero worship leaves her with a horrible case of babbling-itis. Her heart’s becoming more engaged the longer they spend together, but his sudden interest can’t possibly last when he discovers she’s not the ideal image of perfection.

Both Jason and Ella found themselves being the target of the Town’s Battleaxes, consist of busybodies who ruled the town and have a love to matchmake. Ella was tasked to deliver a tuxedo to Jason as she is a member of committee that organise The Bachelor Auction. Jason found himself being forced to take care of a cat that he rescued and which he nothing about cat. Jason seek Ella’s help as she also owned a cat herself.
Ella is physically and emotionally scarred from a fire that has killed both her parent. She was a quiet lady and often people doesn’t know she was in the same room with them. Jason on the other hand, is good looking but abit of a loner. He lost his dad when he was 8 year old and doesn’t allow himself to get serious about anyone.
The characters are easy to relate to. Love how they balance each other and make me glued to the story. Overall, this story is an emotional read to me .
