An intriguing contemporary romance with a handsome firefighter hero, a heroine from the other side of the tracks, wonderful secondary characters and a house fire. If all this isn't enough through in family intrigue and a town scion who can't keep it in his pants. All the makings of a wonderfully fast paced romance. Thanks to Netgalley for giving me this copy in exchange for an honest review.
This is the 2nd book in the Rosewood Series. I admit I have not read the first book and this is a new to me author but I found it wasn't really necessary as each of these books pretty much stand on their own. For me this was a light romance that tended to veer off plot and get involved in small subplots. This didn't bother me too much but I think sticking to the main story and beefing it up a bit more would have been a better way to go. Both the main characters were likeable and rather sweet. My favorite character was the Chamberlain Grandmother, she was a hoot and a bit of a match maker. My least favorite character was Logan the heroine's brother. The secondary plot dealt with him and it was not resolved. I figure the author will get around to writing his book and we will see how it all plays out. The problem with this ...a great deal of the story surrounded him and his situation ...then..well nothing. I felt the read was just sort of dangling.
Overall an interesting read with I will award 3.5 stars which means it was a bit better than just ok. I think beta readers might have helped streamline the story a bit more and keep it on track. If you are looking for a quick filler book while waiting for a new release to come out. This would be a book for you. Feeding the Fire will be released March 16, 2015.
