Rick has been living with an older couple (Joe and Marie) in their attached apartment. It is a great situation for both parties, especially as Joe and Marie are getting older. Rick is single and enjoys helping the older couple with the more physical tasks around the house and property.
After a health scare with the elderly couple, the hospital contacts their only son, who is been estranged from them for decades. His daughter (Joe and Marie's only grandchild – who they knew nothing about) shows up to help them get their affairs in order and help them make decisions about where they will live, etc.
Rick is extremely skeptical of Jessica's motives for these people he cares about - like a second set of parents. Jessica is skeptical of Rick's motives, as well. However, As could be expected, Jessica and Rick are attracted to one another which complicates things even further.
Shannon Stacey is in her element. I have yet to read a book by her that I haven't loved.
Tatiana Sokolov is one of my favorite narrators. She could work on her Boston accent little bit.
Credit worthy? Absolutely
Notes: some descriptions of sex and strong language

Over the past year or so I’ve just about given up on all romances, because nothing ever happens, just pages and pages of nothing, so I’ve been reading murder mysteries, spy stories, stalker stories, serial killer stories, those kinds of books, books with some meat to them. But I thought I’d try this one since it was about firemen so there was bound be some excitement. And there was, plus a nice love story.
This was about a worthless father (as far as I’m concerned) who was embarrassed by his parents when he was a young that he left and didn’t come back for forty years and didn’t tell his parents, Joe and Marie, they had a granddaughter so they were stunned when Jessica showed up on their doorstep when she was 34. What an A-hole her father was. I didn’t like him at all.
And this was about the firefighter, Rick, who was as sweet and kind as he could be, and fell in love with Jess, who lived in San Diego, while Rick lived in Boston, in the upstairs apartment of Joe and Marie’s house.
It was a good story of the trials and tribulations of Rick and Jess. Of the attraction they fought, of fires and tragic accidents, of Marie and Joe’s love for a son that was gone from their lives for so long, of Rick and Jess trying to figure out how to have a relationship when they lived thousands of miles apart. It was good.
There was definitely a lot of desire, and explicit sex! There was swearing, they are firefighters after all, but the F-bomb was only used 4 times.
As to the narration: Marvelous! Ms. Sokolov/Tanya Eby is one of my favorite narrators. She never disappoints. Between her reading with such emotions and the wonderful men’s and women’s voices she does you really can’t go wrong.
