When Sasha is mugged in a back alley, volunteer EMT David comes to the rescue. She visits the fire station to thank him and it is instant passion between the two. However they both have some issues to get through before they can admit their love to each other and feel
secure in their relationship.
The base plot has good potential and both Sasha´s and David´s personal issues and history make them interesting. Sasha seems to have made peace with the harsh world she was brought up in. She is just what David needs to realize that he can also come to peace with his
past. I was looking forward to seeing the relationship between the two main characters grow, handling and overcoming the hurdles.
It is a fairly short story and so I was surprised by how long it took me to get through it. Even though both the main characters were likeable and the side characters even more so, the story never engaged me. I think the main reason for that was that the storyline was very
jumpy and strayed from the main plot. The deeper moments where one could have connected with the characters were hastily passed by. Also the point of view shifted a lot from main characters, to side characters and back. The book could also have benefited from one more round of editing (there were some switched names).
I am of course all for hot sex scenes in a romance book, but I also enjoy a heartwarming scene between the two people falling in love. It seemed like all those scenes disappeared in desperate and hurried sex. I never actually felt the characters go from in lust to in love and my only clue to this happening was them saying so to each other.
What I really liked in this book was the side characters, especially Pete and Danny. I would love to read more about them and hope that Ms Moore would like to share their stories too.
