A swoony, firefighter romance from USA Today Bestselling Author J.H. Croix!
✔️ Nerdy guy turned smokin’ hot firefighter.
✔️ A smart, sassy heroine.
✔️ The boy who brings them together.
✔️ Off-the-charts chemistry 
✔️ Small town gossip run wild.
Romance is on my never-again bucket list. I’m moving back to Alaska with plans to turn into a grand old cat lady. When I run into Wes, my hormones have a different opinion. Also, there is no cat on the horizon. Rather, a sweet rescue dog.
Wes was quiet and smart in high school. Now a hotshot firefighter, he comes complete with panty-melting powers. 
A few fantasies never hurt. Until our lives get waaaay more entangled than I ever expected.
Between firefighting and helping my mother with the local animal shelter, time is one thing I don’t have. When Tiffany crosses my path, she may be tempting, but I have less than zero time. Except, apparently, for kissing her. 
When life throws a serious curveball, Tiffany becomes someone I can’t forget. I just have to convince her we’re worth the risk.
Wes & Tiffany’s story is perfect for readers who love small town romance, sassy heroines, broody heroes, slow burn, emotional romance with a dash of angst, oozing with swoon, and protective heroes who’ll do anything for the woman they love. 
*A full-length, standalone romance.

    Well… Wes is definitely the total swoony package! He’s smart, kind, gorgeous and has a heart of gold. Tiffany is beautiful, selfless and really digs Wes even though she tries to fight her feelings. That’s the fun element to this story because she doesn’t stand a chance between Wes and Ross! I loved the fact that they both worked together to make a family for Ross who lost everything. It’s a beautiful heart-melting story. Their attraction and off the charts chemistry is just an added bonus! “I voluntarily received this arc book for an honest review”

    Wes and Tiffany get unexpected news that brings them together in the most unusual way. Neither was looking for love but it barreled through like a freight train. This was so well written and they characters were fantastic. I also enjoyed getting snippets from the other characters from previous books. This series is fantastic and I can't wait for the next book. Wes gets news his best friend from college died in a car accident and left his son Ross for Wes to raise. Tiffany was best friends with Sarah. They went to high school and college together and Sarah became a lawyer. Sarah died in a car accident along with her husband George and they left Tiffany and Wes to share guardianship of Ross. Tiffany has issues from her past that she has to overcome but Wes breaks through and they get their HEA ending.

    A charming small town book. Enjoyed Wes and Tiffany’s story. Wes was studious in high school, now he’s a hottie who is also helping his mother run the local animal shelter (aw). In high school, Tiffany was out of his league. She still is, but now she’s back in town and taking notice of Wes. Recommend. Received from Bad Boy Update.
