Abbie Donegan isn't ready to move on. After a fast-moving fire kills her husband, she's left alone and with a baby on the way. She doesn't need another husband and dating a firefighter would be crazy, but her rough-around-the-edges SEAL has a way of getting under her skin... and into her bed. Her life. And her heart.

Part of a series but stands alone. Kade and Abbie get their HEA. I’ve been waiting for this story for a while; I’m so glad that Anne finally wrote a happy ending for Abbie and for Kade; I was hoping that they would end up together. Although this book is part of a series it also stands alone. However, if you want more background on Abbie’s story you might want to read Sweet Burn. Reading Sweet Burn is totally not necessary to enjoy this book but I wanted to let you know about it. Kade’s story kind of starts in Smoking Hot but, again, it’s not necessary to read that to enjoy this one. Abbie doesn’t want another relationship but pregnancy hormones are really ramping up her libido. She’s wants to do the “friends with benefits” thing with Kade. Kade doesn’t have any interest in a relationship either but he and Abbie had a thing back in high school. The sex was the best he’s ever had; so he’s willing to accommodate her request to be “friends.” This sounds like a simple romance trope but Anne Marsh has woven a compelling story about these two people who have faced difficulties that most people can’t even imagine. Their path to an HEA isn’t straight but following the twists and turns in their relationship kept me glued to my ereader – I couldn’t put it down. If you’ve read the other books in the Smoke Jumpers / When SEALs Come Home series you MUST read this one. If you haven’t read them it doesn’t matter this is a great story about a smoking hot SEAL and I loved it. I received an ARC of this book in exchange for an honest review but I also purchased a copy because I loved the book. Note: as with the other books in this series there is liberal use of the F word. I only mention this because some people are offended by the use of strong language and then leave negative reviews.
I LOVE this series and this book might be my favorite yet! Kade and Abbie: Abbie is pregnant and knows Kade from high school. He has returned from fighting in the desert with a bad knee but with a job to do: get Abbie to accept everyone's help. Abbie'e husband is dead and she just wants to be left alone. This story is so cute but sexy at the same time, plus includes Stan, a mutt that is now Kade's dog. From him doing yoga at her studio and taking her fishing against her wishes, this is another wonderful addition to the series, which(and I think is important)you don't have to read in a row to enjoy this story. Wonderful!
