When Beckett Sloan, a war veteran turned firefighter on the elite rescue squad in Hidden Cove Fire Department, falls for Lela Allen, the ex-wife of a PTSD sufferer, their relationship is doomed. Beck also has the malady and it caused the breakup of his marriage and the estrangement of his son. Lela is divorcing her army husband because of his inability to manage his own post-traumatic stress syndrome. And worse, PTSD has greatly affected their sons. Will fate keep these two apart or will their feelings triumph? With storylines for two other veterans, It Had to Be You combines realistic firefighting and war scenes with heart-wrenching emotion.

Just hearing the story made it so real for me. I could visualize very easily the firehouse, the fires, etc in the story.
All the books in this series are similar but have very different story lines. The lives of the firefighters are the focus and these stories just bring them to life. I've never thought about what these men and women do so vividly as I do now after reading this series.
I loved Beckett. He was so strong, caring, broken but determined to do the right thing no matter what.
He was broken, she was hurt, could they fix each other!
It Had To Be You is my favorite in this entire series. I loved Beckett! By hearing this story read out loud it seemed I could almost feel the pain Beckett and Lela felt because he wanted her and she just couldn't deal with another man with PSTD but love won out! I don't think our military or firefighter or cops get the support and praise that they so deserve for their service!
