Flames almost killed this ex-firefighter. And the sparks he’s feeling now might burn what’s left of his heart.

Does he really not remember me?
Logan
I’m upright and functioning. Isn’t that enough? I shouldn’t even be alive. And I definitely don’t have time for the bubbly, gorgeous woman from my past who can do better than me. No matter how much I wish I could be the man she remembers.

Excerpt
“Seriously? I thought you’d be all over that.” The woman was one of the
most tenacious I knew. No way she’d just roll over and hide her head in the
sand. That wasn’t Sabrina.
“Yeah, I guess it’s taking me a minute to come to terms with the fact
that my whole life has been a lie.” She swiped suspiciously at her eyes. But
she couldn’t be crying—her voice sounded too flat and matter of fact. “I
thought you of all people would get that.”
“What’s that supposed to mean?”
“Oh come on. You’ve spent the better part of two years pushing everyone
you know and love away from you because you survived when most of your crew
didn’t. It doesn’t take a psychologist to see that you have a serious f*cking
case of survivor’s guilt.”
“F*ck you.” She didn’t know what the hell she was talking about.
“Already have.” Her smile looked more like a snarl. “Wouldn’t mind having
one last throw though.”
“You’re nuts.”
“Takes one to know one.”
I snorted a laugh. Christ, how could she be so cute while being all angry
and plastered?
“I’ve heard that angry sex is hot. Maybe we should try it.”
I about swallowed my tongue when she said that. While I was busy
sputtering, she leaned over and kissed me. Her hand cupped the side of my face
as her lips covered mine.
Contrary to her angry words, she was just as soft
and delicious as I remembered. She moaned deep in her throat, and I lost it. I
took control of the kiss, moving my lips over hers, relearning everything I
forgot I knew about her.
I pulled her onto me until she straddled me then pulled her face down to
mine so I could kiss her some more. While I was busy kissing her, our hands
roamed. I had my hands full of her amazing tits and was thinking about the best
way to get her bra off. Because I loved her breasts. They were gorgeous and
soft and just everything. I had to have more.
Sabrina must’ve thought the same since her hands raked down my back, her
nails scoring my skin under my shirt.
I stiffened.
That used to be something I loved, but not anymore. I couldn’t bear to
even look at that part of me in the mirror, let alone touch it. I sure as hell
didn’t want her to feel my f*cked-up skin.
A prickling sensation swept over my scalp and my body heated in a way
that had absolutely nothing to do with the alcohol or the gorgeous woman on my
lap. I pulled back and gulped to keep the champagne down.
Sabrina slumped into me with a moan. “Is the room spinning, or is that
just me? Or maybe it’s you.”
F*ck. I held her a little bit away from me, wary she was going to puke.
She blinked blearily back at me and smiled.
I sighed. “You’re wasted. We can’t do this.”
What had I been thinking? Everything about this was so f*cking wrong.
But I still really wanted to. My dick throbbed impatiently under her
round ass.
We hated each other. Or something. I couldn’t remember exactly. Something
else held claim to the majority of my blood flow.

My Review…

Burns Brothers

Oh I was so excited to see the next story in this series and even more so to find out it was Sabrina’s story, the “sister” of the Burns Brothers group.

I was so moved by Sabrina’s story when it was mentioned in the previous books in this series and now to read her whole story was perfect.

The past is coming back into Sabrina’s world.  Her history with Logan is short but it really meant something to her.  And then to have to go through what she did alone and with no word from Logan, you can understand the anger and frustration she has when he comes back into her world.

Logan, this scarred and flawed man has a serious case of survivors’ guilt that pushes all he loves away.  It takes seeing Sabrina again to move him to want more from his self-imposed, lonely existence.

The sparks still fly between Logan and Sabrina and it was heartwarming to read how their relationship blooms.

It was also fun to see past characters make appearances in this story! It was lovely to catch up to what everyone was doing! I cannot wait to read the next story in this series!
