Adam Healey is a firefighter for the Guff's Lake Fire Department and is also Mr. January. When he's injured on the job, instead of taking it easy, he studies for his Lieutenant’s exam because he wants a promotion and make his father proud of him. Samantha Everett is a single mom with a young son, William. She's working hard to get her new baking business going when she meets Adam. She doesn't have the interest or time for romance but William is quite taken with his new friend, Adam, so Sam doesn't think she has a choice but to let Adam into their lives. Everything is going along smoothly until Sam's ex emails that he wants to visit William. This scares Sam since he hasn't had anything to do with William for years. I really liked this book. The smooth writing style made it easy to follow the plot. The characters were great too. Who doesn't love firefighters? Adam wasn't just a big, handsome man who was great with kids but he was also insecure about his father's feelings toward him. This made him a more human character. I admired Sam because of everything she had gone through with her ex and that she was starting a business while building a life for herself and her son. William is a cute little boy that I couldn't help but like. My heart went out to him because of his father's lack of interest. I love stories about firefighters though this one didn't have any on the scene action in it. It's a good romance with likeable characters and a good read.
Mr. January is not my first book by Ann Roth. I was again impressed with Ms Roth's story telling abilities. She has delivered a well written book with lovable characters, drama, humor and sizzle. Mr. January is an engaging story and held my attention from cover to cover. I enjoyed this book and look forward to reading more from Ann Roth in the future. Mr. January is book 1 of the Heroes Of Rogue Valley Calendar Guys Series, but can be read as a standalone. This is a complete book, not a cliff-hanger.
