Everyone knows that if you play with fire you’ll end up getting burned…
What happens when you attend a first responder’s bachelor auction with your best friends? Well, if your name is Madison Kelly like me, your friends end up bidding on a date for you with your high school crush.
That’s right. Even back when I was ‘Fatty Maddie’ to all my classmates, I had eyes for the quarterback of our football team. Not like I was the only one.
Mauro Bianco may fight fires for a living, but he still sets my heart ablaze. One look at the rugged, muscular man he’s turned into and I want to slide down his pole.
One date. That’s all I’m committed to. A few hours and I can tuck him back into that tattered old shoebox in my closet.
As always, the universe has other plans. I never would’ve predicted that in a matter of days he’d turn from my dream guy into my business partner — and that’s when things got interesting.
Oh. My. Fuck.
This book is freaking adorable! This is a second chance romance that seriously makes you think of every unrequited crush you had in High School.
Okay… so maybe that is the cringiest thing ever. At least for me. But that butterflies-wont-stop-cant-stop feeling? Yeah, that’s what this book gives and I loved it.
Not only was it super sweet and adorable but I loved how it actually took a bit of a serious turn. Not over the top but certainly enough that makes you want to grab the next book so you can see what happens.
Mauro and Madison are great together and I adore how they help each other deal with their past issues. Mauro with his ex cheating on him and Madison with her self esteem issues from high school. But it’s not the main focus. It’s just a lovely little side note that makes these characters feel like real people.
The level of relationships in this book whether platonic or romantic or familial was on point and I’m definitely going to be picking up the next book ASAP
Until next time,
