The whole world knew me… but I didn’t know myself. When I wasn’t performing–my life was sterile hotel rooms, lukewarm room service, and binge-watching cooking and home improvement shows on cable. I did what I was told to do and went where I was directed to go. I don’t know what made me get in my car and drive to Sunnyville that day. Was it fate? Destiny? I’m not sure. Maybe. Everything in my life changed that day, and I finally learned who I was meant to be.


I grew up in a small town. My life was planned–the job, the house, the girl. Even the dog. As a firefighter, I knew how fast things could change, and yet I wasn’t prepared for what began that Thursday. There was no Defensible Space–no buffer that protected me from the loss of everything I thought was my future. Instead of facing my fears, I packed it up and headed to Sunnyville. Some might have said I was running.


Funny–That’s exactly what I was doing when I ran into Penny Anderson while chasing my wayward dog.

At the time I didn’t know it, but she found me when I was lost.

My Review:

This one definitely had me interested from the start. Even had me wanting to go back and read Grady’s story from Bromberg’s original series. I liked the characters a lot as well. Both had great back stories and were very well flushed out through the story. I like that even when things were brought in as the dramatic problems to overcome, the characters were able to take a minute to think about it, and realize that they either overreacted or needed to put effort out to fix it. Without taking a long time or needing a big push from someone else to do it.

The story kept me involved and it was a quick read as my interest was held the whole time. The only complaints I had were that there were some things that I feel were left out and would have made for good scenes in the story. Like when Penny’s best friend came to visit, we only got a tiny bit of when he first arrived, and then no time spent with all of them as he stayed. There were a few other events like that as well. The steamy scenes were good, although also needed maybe just a bit more? Some of the way they talked during those scenes didn’t fit exactly for me as I read. But overall, this was a really good story, and I hope to read more by this author in the future!
