A guilt-driven firefighter, a widowed mother, neither is ready for love, but love has other plans.

Firefighter Lucas Bennett had the carefree life he’d always wanted until a deadly blaze took the life of his company mate and best friend. Blaming himself was easy but pulling himself from the tailspin of guilt proved to be much harder. The fog of sadness and guilt pushed him down a dangerous path until he nearly died fighting the beast. Forced to stop and reevaluate his life, he decided to make a change before it was too late.

A fire took almost everything from Sarah Robinson—her husband and her home—leaving her to raise their precious daughter alone. Everywhere she looked held memories of her husband, pouring salt on her ever-present wound. Unable to live any longer around the memories of her husband, she and her daughter moved to Oak Grove, far away from the grief of the past. All Sarah needed was the chance to start a new life for her and her daughter.

A car accident on a dark, rainy night put Lucas and Sarah on a collision course neither of them expected… with questions they’re not ready to answer. Can a single mother open her broken heart for a second chance at love? Will a broken firefighter risk his heart for what might be his only chance at forever? Are each of them willing to take one last risk to be together? His risk. Her reward. Together, they’ll mend each other’s broken hearts.

If you like small-town romance where the heroes are sexy and the women are strong, unlock One Last Risk to start your visit to Oak Grove, Pennsylvania and fall in love with Lucas and Sarah!


This book was received in exchange for an honest review

This is the story of Sarah Robinson, who after losing her husband in a fire, decides to take her four year old daughter Lily to get a fresh start.

In the café she meets sexy Lucas Bennett, they are instantly attracted to each other, but later that evening Sarah crashes her car in to a tree after being hit by a drunk driver. The EMS attend and Lucas who is the paramedic recognises her and instantly feels a need to care for her, taking her to the hospital and sitting with her in her hospital room.

Lucas Bennett is actually a fire fighter but after a fire that could have got himself and his collegues killed he is forced into suspension and to ride the ambulance for sixty days as well as to go a see the shrink.

This story was really great where we see how the instant attraction turns to  love and his love of Lily, but we also see that grief can also be helped by the people who love and support you.

I can’t wait to read the next instalment in the Oak Grove Series by Nancy Stopper
