Emma Hill had been off the dating scene for 7 years, thanks to her crazy ex-husband. But then she falls off of a building and has a vision of the man who will change all of that. Too bad it happened just before a man who seems to be perfect for her in every way (but can't be the man in the vision) comes and sweeps her off her feet.
Craig Masterson is only supposed to be in town investigating murder and corruption at the highest levels. Only after he falls for Emma does he find out she used to be married to the dirtiest cop on the force.
The story started with a bang, from chapter one I was hooked, could not put it down.
The characters were fun, hard working EMTs and firefighters. They had close friendships, were loyal and supporting for each other.
The professional world was written in a sense that seemed real and believable, enticing.
The 'vision' was a bit awkward to me at first, a bit immature. And how Emma clung to it, made major, stupid, socially unacceptable decisions based on it -- even though everything else pointed out to her being wrong -- I just didn't get it. The person Emma was portrait as did not match to her actions and thoughts.
While the professional and suspense side of the book was appealing and captivating, the romance side was immature and awkward, even in the dialog.
I personally dislike books that end in the cliffhanger, but if the next book is readily available, I might overlook that.
Edge of the Heat has enough promise of a good series to come, so I'll continue to the next book. Three spoons for book one!
