Title: Where There’s Smoke (2015 Daily Dose – Never Too Late)
Author Name & Publisher: Nico Jaye (Dreamspinner Press)
Publication Date & Length: June 1, 2015 – 58 pgs


If he can make room in his life and his heart, an isolated medieval history professor might find a real life knight in shining armor.

A terrible breakup in his early thirties left David shying away from relationships. For years he’s been content with his solitary life, finding fulfillment in his career, books, television show marathons, and his cat’s companionship. When David meets his neighbor Zach, he can’t tell if Zach is just being friendly or if the handsome fireman might actually be interested in him. The more time they spend together, though, the more David questions his resolution to remain single. If Zach can extinguish the flames left by David’s past, David might finally break away from his structured life and take a chance on love.

A story from the Dreamspinner Press 2015 Daily Dose package “Never Too Late.”

This was a quick, sweet read.  David, Mrs. Pettifer and Zach were a perfect trio.  I loved how Mrs. Pettifer was always jabbering on about one thing or another and how both David and Zach just let her do her own thing.

Zach and David begin on a great journey together.  They have great chemistry and you can’t do anything but root for them to make it.

I really enjoyed this and wished it had been longer so that I could have seen more of their story.

Nico Jaye is a fan of all things HEA and has dragged her romance collection along for her moves from San Francisco to Los Angeles to Chicago to New York and back. She thinks reading is awesome and loves that she can hang out night after night with crinoline-wearing debutantes, brawny firemen in suspenders, and werewolf shifters with Scottish brogues. An overall feline enthusiast, Nico secretly (or not so secretly?) adores Hello Kitty, cat GIFs, spontaneous traveling, pretending to be crafty, emoticons, hot menfolk, and parenthetical statements (not necessarily in that order).
