TURN ON THE CHARM
Eternal good girl Casey Tanner moved to White Pine for a fresh start. Her mission: to finally have fun. And a fling with a reckless bad boy is the very first item on the to-do list she pretended not to make. After one long, lingering look at a sexy firefighter, Casey has found her man.
...AND TURN UP THE HEAT
Getting women into his bed has never been a problem for Abe Cameron. Letting one into his heart is an entirely different matter. But just one kiss, just one touch, just one smile from beautiful Casey has this lifelong bachelor flirting with the idea of forever. And Casey's refusal to settle down only makes Abe more determined than ever to win her heart. Now the one woman who can't be caught is the only one Abe can't live without...
Casey Tanner pulled up stakes and moved to White Pine on a whim and a prayer to try to mend her relationship with her sister, Audrey, as well as make a change in her well-structured life. She wanted to do something fun, something irresponsible, something she normally wouldn't do. And something she normally wouldn't do is have a friends with lots and lots of benefits. A fling. A fling with a wicked hot fireman. A fling with a wicked hot, known for his player ways fireman named Abe Cameron.
And Abe Cameron is on board with this fling relationship until he realizes he wants more with Casey. She's the only woman who's gotten under his skin and now he just needs to convince her that she wants more too—that she deserves more.
Excuse me for a minute, I need to set my house on fire so Abe can come put it out for me... I kid, I kid. But man, Abe is one hella sexy, hot fireman. He's smart, funny, responsible and ready to settle. Casey is a bit of a mess. Always forced into the responsible role due to circumstances, Casey never had an opportunity to sow her wild oats and now she wants to—with her to-do list with Abe.
These two together make me happy, sad, frustrated and happy again. Love them as couple—they're perfect for each other. Add in the crazy that's the Knots and Bolts crew and this series just keeps getting better and better!
~ Review by Missy
Oh, this series has completely stolen my heart. Every trip back to White Pine is better than the last, and I find myself falling in love with these characters and this town ever more.
Moving to White Pine was what Casey Tanner needed to shake the rigid, good girl life she'd been living. After owning up to her mistakes, she's now determined to let loose and have some fun. And fun with sexy firefighter, Abe Cameron is just the ticket.
Except confirmed bachelor Abe isn't what she's expecting. There's something about Casey—and Casey's kiss—that has him thinking about changing his ways, and about the idea of forever.
That's not what Casey's signed up for though, and now Abe is faced with the idea that the one may end up as the one that got away....
I basically smiled through this entire book. Even the most simple of sentences, feelings, moments felt like joy to me. And getting to know more about Casey, who's not been the most lovable character in previous books, was wonderful. She could easily have remained somewhat unlikeable but she was the furthest thing from—I sympathized with her, I empathized with her and damn it, I wanted to be her friend. She may feel like an outsider in her circle of new friends, but she's just so human, so real, that I was desperate to see her get her HEA.
And Abe. Holy smokes! Now, I love me some sexy firefighters and this guy might be one of my all-time faves. He was quiet, strong and made my heart pitter-patter. His gruff exterior, his imperfections made him a wonderful book boyfriend, and when he opened his arms up for Casey to curl into, I wanted to take her place. I think his arms might be my favorite place in one of my favorite fictional small towns.
My only complaint, and it's MINOR, is the more formal language during the dirty times. It may be silly, but I couldn't help a little giggle every time I read the word 'penis' (I mentally replaced it with 'cock', ‘cause that's how I roll), which just proves I'm totally immature. But also, totally in love with Kim Amos' words. Ugh, PLEASE tell me there's going to be more of this series. PLEASE!
