Fireman Jackson Kain and ER physician Dr. Nick Kirby would both like nothing better than to leave behind their high-pressure NY City lives for a just a few days in the peaceful wilds of Northern Ca. Two ordinary men exploring their growing relationship in glorious, undisturbed beauty of nature. Before this trip is over, both men will need all their specialized abilities and training to survive their romantic interlude turned WILD FIRE.
Recuperating from an work-related injury, NY City fireman Jackson Kain convinces new boyfriend Dr. Nicolas Kirby to spend a few days at a secluded California cabin in the woods far away from the hustle and bustle of their stressful worlds.
Nick is a cautious man with protective walls around him that persistent, persuasive Jackson is determined to breakdown, scale or tunnel under. These few days are Jackson’s best chance to convince Nick he is sincere and reliable in all things, including matters of the heart. Unfortunately, both men are going to get more opportunities to prove themselves than either bargained for.
What was supposed to be a relaxing break from the world to get to know one another better turns into a struggle for survival, that pits both men against nature and time.
This was a sweet story about two men Jackson and Nick who are already in a relationship but had not brought it to the next level yet. Jackson is a firefighter who is still recovering from a previous injury and Nick is a ER doctor. They decide to go on vacation together. Nick fights his feelings a lot in this book afraid to take it to that next level.
There was a lot of action in this Novella as well as the sweet when they worked together to get to safety. I have to admit I was on the edge of my seat while reading this hoping for the best for them.
All together I really loved this Novella!
I would definitely recommend this book!
This was a great book by a great author. I loved how Jackson and Nick were already in a relationship. There were certain parts that did seem a little off the wall but overall I really enjoyed it. The author was able to bring together two people one who had relationship issues and one who was a go getter. This whole series was definitely one of the best of the Storming Love Series.
