Publisher's Summary

If you can’t stand the heat, don’t fall for a firefighter....

Fire Chief Lincoln Reed is known for his heroics in the fire department and in the bedroom. Life is a never-ending good time. Until she lands in the middle of the accident scene he’s working...and then his backyard. Too bad she’s immune to flirty first responders.

Flight trauma surgeon Mackenzie O’Neil is on a crash course with burnout. She’s got a scar on her face and a shake in her hands. A temporary job as a small-town family physician is just the prescription. She’ll learn to meditate. Sleep more. Take up gardening.

She definitely won’t take her shirtless, firefighting neighbor’s hot body for a test drive.

But Linc and his tattoos are very persuasive. What’s a harmless little adrenaline-fueled fling between neighbors? It’s all naked fun and games until the shadows from Mack’s past find their way into her present. Can Linc be her hero when she needs him the most or will their scars ruin everything?

One thing is certain: Someone is going to get burned.

Author’s Warning: This small-town happily-ever-after is smokin’ hot, sweetly hilarious, deliciously suspenseful, and a one-two punch to the feels. One-click for a disaster dog, precocious kids, a good ol’ fistfight, nosy neighbors, high-adrenaline first responder heroics, firefighter bromance, and kitchen sexytimes.

Protecting what’s mine

Oh my! I absolutely loved Linc and Macs story. It was sooooo worth the wait! The depth behind Linc, what everyone sees vs who he truly is. Mac picking herself up and becoming something/someone with her background. How she ties in with Luke and Aldo. Lucy Score is a masterminding Genius with all her little tie bits and Easter eggs that all come full circle.

Hot fire chief Linc.

This book has everything. Laughter, tears, an insane big sister, a delusional mother, sexy doctor and a hot fire chief. I couldn’t put this book down, the story is beautiful, the plot so well developed. This book is definitely a favorite of mine. Bravo, Ms. Lucy

Linc finally get's his HEA

Narrator Review: Natalie Duke does a good job bringing the characters to life. Book Review: Back to Benevolence we go! I have been waiting for Lincoln Reed to finally get his HEA, and did he ever! Linc (Chief Sexy Pants) and Mack (Dr. Mc Dreamy) meet at an accident scene. Fire Chief Linc is a ladies man. He will never settle down with one lady. Mackenzie is a flight trauma surgeon trying to slow down and not get burned out. She comes to Benevolence to just try to have a change of pace. Bring on the STEAM! When these two meet, there is no fire hose big enough to stop the flames from burning these two up! Oh how Mack tries to not fall under Linc’s sexy spell. These two neighbors and friends try hard to resist each other. But they cannot resist the pull and I loved reading how they fell in love with each other. Throw in crazy family, friends and neighbors and you have a great small town that helps get these two together. We met back up with Luke, Harper, Gloria and Aldo again and I loved hearing how their family grew! I cried, laughed, and cheered while I devoured this book. Lucy, you sure know how to write lovable alpha-men and strong kicka$$ women! You make it hard to read someone elses books! Pretend You’re Mine was my first ever Lucy book, I have read it more than 20 times! I know I will read Protecting What’s Mine just as many times! How can you keep getting better at creating whole worlds I want to live in with well written characters that I feel like I personally know? All I can say is… PLEASE KEEP THEM COMING!

Disappointed

I had high hopes for this book. It started off really strong. But, by chapter 13 when there was a barbecue and I got confused by SO many people, I really started to lose interest. I like Lucy Score, have read a book or two written by her, but just couldn’t finish this one. Also, not a fan of Natalie Duke, so there’s that. Can’t recommend a book I couldn’t finish and didn’t even listen to the entire epilogue before ending it. This book just wasn’t for me.

Well-woven story, a couple to cheer for (mostly)

I really enjoyed this story, and the narration was superb. It is a long romance, but the end is worth the wait. The only thing I didn't like about this book was a matter of personal tastes. I don't want to spoil anything, and I do LOVE this book boyfriend (Linc), but I don't find it hot in any way, shape, or form when a man tells a woman what she will and will not do with her life, whether she is his girlfriend or wife, and I found it especially eyebrow-raising that the woman (who has a military background) was completely OK with him telling her how it's going to be. He lost a lot of "hot-points" when that happened and I generally felt less strongly about the story after that point. Still, it was a lovely, fun story. I'm just personally not into women being "claimed," then bossed around and controlled by their partners. Seen it too much in real life, it's not sexy.

Great Story

The narrator did a good job. I really enjoyed this story and the H/h. This was my first book by this author and I'm looking forward to read/listen to more by her. I had no issues following along with this book even though I didn't read/listen to previous books in this series.

Excellent!

I’ve read this book but bought the audio version when it came out. The narrators were perfect and loved the way they performed the story. Of course I enjoyed listening to Doc Dreamy and Chief Sexy Pants/ Hotshots story.
