One horrendous encounter with bikies left Ash shattered. Arriving in Gully’s Fall in search of a new life, she didn’t count on falling for the hunky, motorbike-riding fireman who rescued her when her car broke down.
Scott’s drawn to the rubenesque beauty, his desire for her steadily growing to an erotic burn. Can he discover the cause of her wariness and convince her to give him a chance?
Angela Verdenius writes the best BBW (Big Beautiful Women) books I've read. And don't let her Australian dialect scare you, there's a dictionary to all Aussie impressions at the beginning, but with all her books that I've read, I only used it twice.
Her books are the once I re-read again and again, because the characters are so likeable, real, appealing, charismatic, genial, enjoyable... The stories are sweet, funny, and engaging, and you stay up until wee hours of the morning to finish the stories.
In this book readers are introduced to new small town with its winsome characters.
Ash happens to the town by accident, on her search to take a control of her life again, after a terrible experience she went through a year ago. She feels lost to herself, her independence gone, and she wonders if she is able to feel, be close to someone ever again.
Scott is the town 'catch', handsome, friendly, considerate firefighter. He falls for Ash and is willing to do anything to win her, to gain her trust, to let him love her and accept intimacy again.
Scott's patience, restraint, and protectiveness is commendable and sweet, and slowly he's winning Ash over, breaking down her walls.
The stories of the town folks, the mystery of pyromaniac in the small town, the romance, the group of friends ~ just so enjoyable, lovely story, five spoons and looking forward for more stories from this town!
And I want to mention, that all her BBW books are excellent, highly recommended!!
