You already know what a big fan I am of Lindzee Armstrong. And this book is just another reason why I'll stay a fan and you should become one.
Love how she works reality into her situations and characters. Kate and Taylor come with issues past and present. I like this about characters. It makes them believeable and relatable. They come with hobbies, jobs, friends, families, and most importantly - emotional depth.
Armstrong knows how to write chemistry without crossing the blurry lines into steamy and smut. I appreciate being able to read Kate and Taylor's story without worrying about skipping "adult" scenes.
There's a couple of cameos by Brooke. Nice to see her in action again.
I would have liked a quick conversation between Taylor and Amy when he stands up to her with tough love. It would've made his shedding his hero complex stronger for me. A totally minor thing.
I'll look forward to the next installment in the series, be it novel or novella.
When Kate’s abusive husband dies in a house fire, she only feels relief. Eighteen months later, she’s ready to sweep up the fragments of her past and venture back into dating—but this time with the help of a professional matchmaking company. Surely Toujour can succeed where Kate has always failed and find her the perfect man. Taylor is a firefighter who’s tired of dousing infernos in his personal life. Exhausted from a string of dysfunctional relationships, he turns to Toujour at the prodding of a friend, hoping for an easier path to love. The last thing he expects is to be matched with Kate, the intriguing widow he met on the night her house burned. Past relationship fears and old habits threaten to tear them apart before they’ve even begun. Can the ashes of their pasts hold their happily ever after?
