Publisher's Summary

From New York Times and USA Today best-selling Texas romance author Jean Brashear, another story in her much - loved Texas Heroes series:
Stilettos and pencil skirts are more successful, ambitious Pen Gallagher's style than the jeans and boots of the ranch where she was raised. She's fought hard for her success and spared no time for love, certain that marriage and family are not her lot. Now everything she's worked for is jeopardized as scandal brews around her after she fell for a man who prized his own ambitions more. Forced to flee D.C. before her identity is revealed and she can never regain the life she battled to build, she reluctantly returns to Sweetgrass.
Former SEAL turned firefighter Bridger Calhoun, on the other hand, visits Sweetgrass every chance he gets. After a recent tragic fire in which he nearly sacrificed his own life, he is ordered to take time off - and Sweetgrass calls to him. After a lifetime spent rootless and fueled by adrenaline, Bridger wants a quiet life, a home and family of his own with a sweet, soft woman as eager for children as he is.
Then a long-legged, sharp-tongued lawyer crosses his path - and flames ignite. While he's waiting to find Ms. Right and she's waiting for the coast to clear…what's the harm in a little fun? It's only temporary, both agree - they have nothing in common except the heat that blazes high between them, and their goals could not be more opposed. Soon the fire will burn down to embers, and they'll go on with their lives. Easy-peasy, right?

Opposites Do Attract!

Pen Gallagher and Bridger Calhoun couldn’t be more opposite. Pen is a big city lawyer in pencil skirts and high priced stilettos whereas Bridger is a small town firefighter who dreams of a wife and family. Escaping from scandal Pen meets Bridger in Sweetgrass Springs where he is visiting after tragedy almost claims his life. Sparks fly when they meet and they decide that a little harmless fun can’t hurt, or can it? Pen and Bridger’s story is an enjoyable story with some great side stories thrown into the mix. Eric Dove once again entertains us with his exceptional narration.

Not Quite 5 Star

Could not give this book 5 stars. Because I feel to much of the other book's story lines, was used for filler in this book. And this story could very easily have stood by itself. If Ms. Brashear had used more dialog and action to show Pen solving the problem with ex lover's wife and her law firm. Also would have like to have had more of the story on Bridger's sister Molly and other sibling's. Still an ok book if you haven't read some of the other's.
