Rescuing a cop from a burning precinct is in Max’s job description; falling in love was never part of the deal.
Max Harrison moved from the city to take up a role as assistant to the mayor, while also a volunteer firefighter. When he meets Finn Ryan in Ellery, he falls in lust that burns as hot as the fires being set in town.
Finn Ryan is a cop, and somehow he’s attracted trouble. Going back into a fire to rescue the town drunk is just the start. Now he has to rely on the man he’s falling for to make sure it doesn’t end with him dying.
Point of view:
3rd person. Alternating by chapter between Max & Finn’s perspectives.
Note: I read through this series during a time I was incredibly ill. Unfortunately my reviews are quite lacking. Please do not view this as an indicator that I didn’t enjoy the books or would hesitate to recommend them. I truly enjoyed the entire series and consistently appreciate Scott’s writing.
Scott managed to pack a lot into this novella. It was a great mix of fun, sexy, & suspense. While the ending was a little abrupt – it was an easy yet intriguing read. I loved Max & Finn individually and as a couple. I’m also definitely interested in the other men of Ellery Mountain and immediately started The Teacher and the Soldier.
