That was the only word Cam Greer, the son of a wealthy media mogul, had ever associated with women. When he met Amber Murphy his senior year in high school, he felt like, for once, this girl loved him for him. When she pursued her dreams and left Cam behind, Amber not only crushed Cam’s heart, she destroyed his future as well. He was left to start his life over, thinking the only woman that would ever truly love him was gone.
Cara Pratt has finally got her life on track. Ten years after watching her father literally walk out of her life, Cara has finally found happiness with a new stepfather and her high school boyfriend, Lance. Everything is going according to her plan, until a pregnancy test comes back positive. Once again, she finds herself watching the man she loves walk out of her life, taking her future along with him.
When Cam and Cara spot each other across the bar at Maggie’s Place four years later, neither of them are interested in starting a relationship. They’re both a little unsure and completely untrusting. They try to fight the intense immediate attraction, realizing right off, the seriousness of their chemistry, but as hard as they try, they can’t.
As fate pulls them together, will their mistrust push them apart? As the smoldering embers from their pasts come blazing to the surface, fears are uncovered that neither of them are ready to face.
This is Cam and Cara’s story and can be read as a standalone.
Whew! These characters get pulled through an emotional ringer and ended up bringing me along for the ride. I loved the characters and the story line was intense. I devoured this book in just a few hours because I couldn’t put it down. The steamy sex scenes don’t hurt either.
Can and Cara are perfect for each other. They, of course, have a hard time seeing this since they’ve closed themselves off due to past hurts. They get put through a lot throughout this book, some caused by themselves to each other and some caused by others. However, I absolutely loved both of the characters and easily found myself rooting for their relationship and being emotionally invested in the outcome. Cam is a sexy firefighter that is a total alpha male. He’s possessive, protective, sweet, and totally confused about his feelings. Cara is strong willed with a solid backbone and a hard worker. She’s loyal and protective of her friends while she struggles with her demons on a nightly basis. Both of theses characters have a great personalities and I found it very easy to get wrapped up in their story.
The story line was intense and emotional at times but totally worth it. The scenes transition smoothly between Cam and Cara’s POVs. This is another one of those books that had me thinking about it and the characters long after I’d finished the book. I seriously couldn’t get enough of theses two and I can’t wait for Lexi Y Matt’s story next. 5 out of 5 palm trees!
“You know, since we’re on the subject,” I began, raising my eyebrows at her, “do you maybe want to invite me in?”
She shook her head at me as she chuckled a bit. “Do you ever think of anything else besides sex?” She started walking to her door and I followed her.
“No, not really,” I said, shrugging my shoulders. “It doesn’t help that I’ve done nothing but think about you for the past two weeks.” She grinned timidly over her shoulder at me as she unlocked the door. Leaning forward I swiped the hair off of the back of her neck as I softly said the next part in her ear, “Your sexy body, the way you cried out my name, and the look on your face when you came all over me, is all I’ve been able to see.” Her face flushed with color. “You’ve got my balls cussin’, firecracker, and there is only one thing that is going to make them stop.”
Spinning her around swiftly, I pressed my mouth to hers, kissing her hard. She moaned into my mouth and I lost it. That sound shot straight to my dick, making it rise with complete attention. We needed to get inside before I took her right here on the front porch. Reaching behind her, I found the door knob and opened it. I picked her up, walked inside, and kicked the door shut behind us.
As badly as I wanted to make it to the bedroom, it wasn’t going to happen. She was pulling at my clothes, unbuttoning my shirt, and kicking her shoes off while she was still in my arms. Laying her down on the couch I climbed over her. Moving down my shirt, she continued her assault on the buttons—one by one, her fingers brushed against my skin, leaving a wake of warmth in their path.
Once she had it open, she pushed it over my shoulders and slid her hands over my chest as she made her way to my pants. Her touch was impulsive and desperate, like she craved me as much as I did her. I grabbed her wrists and pinned them above her head. Burying my face in her neck, I kissed and nibbled on her earlobe and she let out an inviting giggle. I continued down her throat and goose bumps broke out all over her skin.
Thrusting her hips upward, she tried to make contact but I denied her and pulled back. She whined a little and I couldn’t help but laugh—I loved making her squirm. And tonight, she was going to squirm until she begged me to fuck her.

Promise Me Always
Blake Bentley had a rough upbringing, never fully believing he was good enough for anything or anyone. After being left with a broken heart by his only girlfriend, Blake swore off relationships for good and turned to the only two things that made him feel sufficient – sex and firefighting.
Tessa Collins was brought up in the traditional ‘perfect’ family – loving parents, great sister, and amazing friends. After falling in love with Jared, her life was perfect – until he betrayed her. She has no idea that his betrayal could end up costing her more than just a shattered heart.
Blake and Tessa have been friends since high school. Never wanting to admit their attraction for each other, the two always remained close friends. Now, three years later, Blake and Tessa find themselves being pulled together by a force much greater than friendship.
