Publisher's Summary

Saddled with a job she hates and a detestable boss she likes even less, Adeline Reynolds could use a break. It doesn't look like she'll get one today. Her service dog, Coco, is alerting her she's about to have an epileptic seizure - and her frustrated blind date has left her to deal on her own. Enter firefighter Dean Christopherson, who escorts her to the nearby fire station, where she can suffer through her ordeal safe from injury and prying eyes.
Dean - known as "Crash" to his friends - didn't expect to find The One in a diner during his lunch break, but he's blindsided by the beautiful, brave Adeline. She brings out his every protective instinct - along with the carnal ones. As they get to know each other, Dean's feelings for Adeline grow fast, as does his irritation with her boss, whose behavior is suspicious at best.
As much as he wants to protect Adeline from the world, Crash has to tread carefully. His overprotectiveness could push her away...and leave her vulnerable to a man whose obsession has reached the boiling point.

Love Adeline

Was so glad to see that the latest Susan Stoker book was finally released on audio! I have all of her books on kindle version as well as audio. I like to read the book as soon as it's released, then check for the audio version weeks later. To save money and credits, I normally wait until the price drops to $1.99. Today I happened to have an extra credit burning a hole in my account, so I grabbed Adeline the second I learned that it was available.

Like most of her female heroine's, Adeline is not perfect and meets her male hero in an unexpected way. It is another great Stoker book with the perfect amount of alpha man sexiness (fire fighter!) And good plot to lose yourself in for a couple hours. Hide from the kids if you are on the last few chapters and don't want to be interrupted.

I highly recommend that you read the books in order to get the maximum enjoyment.

Narrator does a good job reading the book and keeps the listener engaged. I tend to listen to Stoker's audio versions while doing stuff around the house or on long car/plane trips.

I loved it!

Crash - aka Dean - is a man in the right place, at the right time. When Adeline who suffers from epilepsy is left in a tight spot when her blind date leaves her stranded minutes before dog, Cocoa, alerts her that a seizure is gonna hit.

From that moment on Adeline has a friend and a man that wants to know who she is, know all about her illness and a man that wants to take care of her. They have an instant connection that takes time to work itself out fully. As with any new dating prospect, Adeline is unsure at first. Though she is comfortable with Dean, she still worries.

His alpha male tendencies bother her at times but not enough to put her off. When things with her boss get to a place that is uncomfortable it's Dean and his friend and brother in arms, Chief who step in to help.

When the unthinkable happens Dean has to make a choice, one that puts him and Adeline on a different path in life. But, that's a good thing.

Happiness waits, if you know when and where to jump onto that train. Everything good in life is worth fighting for and Dean proves that with his actions, and his devotion to Adeline.
