As a Firefighter, Kent Wakefield has been burned before, and not just by fire. So when Casey Bradford, his best friend’s off-limits, gorgeous little sister, asks him to be her fake boyfriend, he flat out refuses. He doesn’t do relationships, real or otherwise. But when his well-meaning, marriage-pushing mother corners him about his cousin’s wedding, he panics and tells her he has a date.
After being left at the altar, Casey is out of options. She needs a boyfriend ASAP or she can kiss her dreams good-bye. Who better than her brother’s emotionally unavailable best friend, Kent. She may have nursed a childhood crush, but this arrangement will be purely platonic…that is until he kisses her and suddenly it gets a lot harder to remember it’s all pretend.

Safety Level: Safe with exceptions. H and h have been in relationships with other people throughout their friendship.
Cliffhanger: No
Ending: HEA

This is a light and sweet friends-to-lovers story that I definitely enjoyed. I feel like I’m winning in the chance department because the two new-to-me authors that I took a chance on turned out pretty great. I’m really glad the publisher approved me for an ARC of this book. It’s my first book from Ms. Weiss, and I tell you now, this definitely won’t be the last.

I really like both main characters. The heroine was driven and career-oriented, but she was also soft and warm. The hero was a troubled firefighter who’s been through a tragic event where he lost someone and almost died himself. I like that their friendship saw both of them during their lowest times. I like the banter between the two protagonists. Another thing, I really enjoyed the secondary characters. I can’t wait to read more about the other firefighters, especially the heroine’s brothers.

Ms. Weiss has written a quick, easy, and enjoyable book that not only captures a reader’s attention through its entirety. It also introduced you to interesting characters that will surely pique your interest and will want any reader to watch out for more. I know, I myself will be waiting for the next books.
