Publisher's Summary

In New York Times bestselling author Melody Anne’s blazing novel of desire and betrayal, a second chance at love is a hot - and dangerous - proposition.

There was a time when Eden’s entire world revolved around Owen Forbes. They were inseparable childhood sweethearts. They planned a life together. Then, without so much as a goodbye, Owen vanished. Now, after ten years, he’s returned to town as the hottest new firefighter on the force. Whatever secrets pulled them apart, Eden can’t fight the sparks reignited by the man who broke her heart.

Owen knows he did Eden wrong. If only he could tell her why. As body meets body, he’s whispering for a second chance - wanting her back so bad it hurts. It can also be dangerous. An arsonist is targeting the small town of Edmonds, and Eden with it. And it’s Owen himself who’s become engulfed in suspicion.

Eden knows that with a past as hot and mysterious as Owen’s, their future together could go up in flames. Because the one man she’s afraid to trust is the only man she desires - and the only one who can save her.

loved it! can't wait for Declan!

I love the book! I also love the whole series. I will warn you though, the first couple of chapters are a little rough as a heroin can never make up her mind and is so wishy-washy. Hang in there, the story does get better!

Narration was painful

The narrator’s voice was excruciating to listen to. I found her narrative skills subpar which took away from enjoining the book

If I hadn't read the author's name when I chose this KU read/listen book, I would never have believed it was written by Melody Anne. I have enjoyed many of her books and this is the first one that I almost didn't finish. I've read the first two books in this series, Kian and Arden, and adored the characters and their stories, as well as the backstories involving friends and relatives. These are technically standalones, but there are quite a few holes in the plot for those who haven't read them in order. As for the story, I cannot stand Owen and his pathetic, self-centered reason for leaving her at 17, without a word, never to come back until 10 years later. He tries to make it sound so altruistic when it involves drugs, gangs, murder...stupid! Oh, and once that mess was "cleared up" (overdose) he left for another few years to FIND HIMSELF!" I really should have quit because, from then on, I wanted Eden to find a man who deserved her, not this fool who didn't want people to think he was "defined only by my money!" Oh, yeah, did I mention he left her, never breaking up with her, and had no problem having sex with multiple women while he was gone? Oh, but they didn't mean anything except as a destressor?! Eden struggled the whole book with trusting him, as well she should. I'm sorry I listened to this audiobook because I'm left with such a terrible taste in my mouth.
Kristin Watson Heintz did a good job with the narration. I would have liked to hear a more distinct vocal change between male and female charcters.

Tugs at your heartstrings

Owen is a flawed man you can't help but fall for, he loves without shame and completely. Eden is a strong woman who has been betrayed by those she has lived the most.

Think I would have enjoyed more by reading

Overall, I liked the story. Heartache and true reasoning for the turmoil on both sides, strong supporting characters, strong storyline.

The narration truly made my overall rating lower than I would have liked. Eden is a somewhat naive, good-girl, who is a little emotionally stunted at times, so the voice of this narrator, I felt very much added to what could be conceived as immaturity or even whiny at times, when her character was trying to get stronger. Add to that, the singular narration that was unable to make Owen's character sound as strong and emotional as he is, just took a lot away from the story for me. I had to speed the narration up to complete the book and will likely try reading the next in the series because I'd REALLY like to know Declan's story!

Very good sequel

While it is not necessary to read these books in order, it does help. The author does a great job explaining what the reader needs to know regarding the previous main characters. This is a hot, romantic & suspenseful read. I’m looking forward to the next book to see if my suspicions regarding the ringleader is correct.
