Sean is a man with needs—needs that a lot of women were ready and willing to fulfill. Yet, the only woman that he wants to fulfill them dumped him for another man. A man who’s a member of his MC and is someone he has to see every single day and twice on Sundays.
He’s bitter and angry. He’s definitely not in the right frame of mind when it comes to dealing with women. Which is unfortunate for his new partner, Naomi, a fresh-out-of-school and totally green paramedic.
Naomi’s got enough problems on her plate. A brother who’s self-destructive and doesn’t care who he takes down with him. A man who she’s in love with but who doesn’t love her. A job that she hates because it is a constant reminder of what she can’t have.
Desperate to distance herself from her problems, she runs, taking the first job in her field that she finds willing to take on someone with so little experience.
The last thing she needs is a perpetually pissed off partner, especially when he sets her blood on fire.
But life doesn’t ask how much you can handle when it dishes out challenges. It just keeps piling them on until you’ve bested them or you’ve buckled under them.
Sean really doesn’t want to like his new partner, Naomi. He just wants to be left alone to live his life however he damn well pleases and without complications.
Naomi doesn’t care what he wants, she can’t be anything but herself. It isn’t long before she’s breaking down his walls and making him feel again. She’s trying to pull him closer and he’s pushing her away.
It’s not long before Sean sees the error of his ways.
It’s too bad, though, that by the time he realizes she’s the one, Naomi’s already gone.
My first read by this author and I liked it, it was a relaxed read and different to what I normally read with MC characters.
I think the synopsis tells of all the major part of this story though which is quite long..
There's MC involvements but not what I'm used to, Sean has a full time day job as a paramedic and unlike previous MC books I've read each character has jobs and the MC is more like a club but a big part of their life.
Both characters have been unlucky in love, Sean has always known his girlfriend had eyes for one of his friends and Naomi well she's been unlucky to by either being cheated on or they moved on.
The story starts with Naomi recovering from an accident after her cop brother was driving his patrol car drunk and run her over, injuries caused her to wear a colostomy bag.
This part of the plot was something I couldn't get my head around, it was an accident, no bad blood her brother was going through a tough time after a break up?
Naomi decided to take a fresh start, new job new place and ended up being partners with Sean.
A romance developed it was slow going, nothing much in the way of action had me turning the pages up to 75% were there was a bit of action with a guy with a grudge.
In summary it was a good romance read, not the sort of plot or MC type of read I was expecting, no angst or drama, jealous ex's or much to keep me flipping the pages eagerly, it was just good.
I Don't think the book title matched the plot but I loved the cover and overall the story.
