Publisher's Summary

Don't believe in love at first sight? He'll make you believe.... Come back to Vermont and to this USA Today best-selling series!

Skye Copeland is on paid leave from her broadcasting job after accidentally drawing a pecker on the traffic map. Let that sink in. Like it's her fault the traffic pattern that day created a perfect schlong?

Skye isn't laughing. She needs this job. And that's the only reason she's agreed to chase down a story in her least favorite place - that hell on earth known as Vermont. A quick trip. In and out. Much like - never mind. 

Skye can sneak into the town that once tried to break her, get the story and get back into the good graces of her producer. Easy peasy. Except things go sideways even as she sets foot over the county line. 

Her step-sister is on the run from a violent drug dealer. And the cop on the case is none other than Benito Rossi, the man who broke her teenage heart. His dark brown eyes still tear her apart. And even as she steels herself to finally tell him off after 12 years, the old fireworks are still there.

Things are about to go boom.

✫✫ 4 Stars ✫✫

I love a second chance romance! This book was sweet and sexy. I really enjoyed the characters. It was fun and had some excitement too. I will admit that I didn't love that the drama all stemmed from two people who didn't actually talk to each other. Seriously It drives me crazy when characters don't discuss things like adults.

Narration was good too.

Another Amazing Book in the True North Series!!

Sarina Bowen never disappoints. This story had it all. Light suspense, slow burn, passion, steam, and even laughs. The story is realistic and the characters are relatable.
I loved the title and how it worked into the story. I loved Benito and felt giddy at the way he treated Skylar. He was calm yet eager for her and slowly worked his way back into her heart even though he never truly left.
This story was amazing and this entire series is one of my absolute favorites.
The narration was fantastic and kept me fully invested!
Definitely recommend!!

Fireworks Shines

I love this audiobook. It’s wonderful. Not only because the book itself is brilliant, but because both narrators do an amazing job. Zachary Webber and Susannah Jones are great as Benito and Skye. Listening to Fireworks is totally worth it.

The whole True North series is amazing. In Fireworks we finally find out who’s Benito’s soulmate. It’s really cool because while we see them in the present trying to figure themselves out, we get to find out what happened 12 years ago that broke them apart.

It’s everything we love about this series and Vermont, the Shipleys and Rossis, but with a bit of intensity with a police investigation, drug traffickers and obviously angst.

Just FYI, you don’t need to know anything about the series to enjoy this book, but as I always say, these books are all awesome so I recommend them all.

Writing and female narrator are terrible.

Even Zachary Weber could not help it plus it was mostly read by Susannah. She is awful in general and her male voice is unlistenable.

Didnt hate it..

ok, so the story was really good. Ben was a great character. I love when the heroines are flawed and there is growth. but Skye didn't do it for me. Maybe it was the narrator that turned me off, but everytime she did Skye, it grinded my nerves. I finished because the story was interesting. It is my least fav jn the series which is sad cuz I always wanted to know Ben's story

This was just okay for me

I looked forward to Benito's story, and the story idea itself was solid, but the h and the some details of the story were more frustrating than enjoyable. I'll start with the h, Sky was supposed to be smarter and more well educated than her weather and traffic job, but she never acted that way , it's one of the times we're told she's smart, but she doesn't act it. She is supposedly educated in journalism and investigative reporting, but her step sister's actions and esp. the note she leaves for Sky is never given a second worrisome thought by Sky. Sky is given exact instructions by her step sister in the note, which Sky can't seem to accomplish and constantly overlooks or doesn't mention obvious clues to Benito. An important part of the story is about a huge misunderstanding that is the catalyst for so many things, but the reveal was so underwhelming. I felt disappointed and somewhat bored. I will say it's the first time I have read an h, who doesn't have a lot of sexual experience and who is shy and has trouble saying some things. I enjoyed that for a change. Who wouldn't love Benito the way he was written. This may be the first time I have heard Susannah Jones, and honestly, she wasn't bad at all, I just didn't care for her voice, she made Sky sound vapid. I always enjoy Zachary Webber.

Another knock out from Sarina Bowen!

I love this series so much and couldn't wait to hear this book on audio! Zachary Webber & Susannah Jones do an amazing job bringing the characters to life! This will become a re-listed to audio for sure!

Story includes current issues facing nation.

This story was okay. I’m not sure I would read another book written by this author. I did not like the way the female’s part was read but, as always, Zachary Webber was superb in his part.

Awesome listen

The worst part about this book??... it ended!!! I’m convinced this author doesn’t know how to write anything but 5 ⭐️ reads. I loved Skye. I’m very picky about my heroines because they can be very annoying or weak and Skyr was neither of these. She was naive when it came to certain things but that’s what kept her real. I love this whole series. Do yourself a favor and read everything written by this author, you won’t be disappointed.

Great book

Really enjoyed this - even more so because I’ve had a book slump with rubbish after rubbish lately. I was relieved to see Sarina Bowen had just released another book and hoped (correctly) it would end the bad run of books. Felt like I got to know the characters and was invested in the story, and sad when it ended. Let’s hope I can find another good book as my next read...

I totally enjoyed this story. Benito and Skye's second chance at love was sweet and full of all the feels. Loved the narration. An all round 5 star read/listen.
