Burn. Explode. Catch fire. Go up in flames. Kindle. Detonate. Light. Awaken. Provoke. Fire. 


That is exactly what this book did to me.  From the very first few pages, Author Tessa Teeven lit the match….and from there things caught fire until they finally exploded.  


After nearly a year and a half of grieving the loss of her husband, twenty-seven year old Alexa Sullivan Tate is headed back to her hometown after a decade of being away. She has no idea her high school crush, Jace McAllister, the guy who stole her heart the same night that he broke it, is more than ready to pick up the pieces. 

Jace has spent the last ten years in the Army defusing bomb after bomb, trying to forget the girl who ignited all his passions. Little does he know that the spark still exists. 

Ten years ago they had smoldering chemistry, but the spark between them now might light a fuse that leads to an explosion even Jace can’t stop. Not that he wants to. If only Alexa can get past her guilt and trust her heart again. 

But how do you put it all on the line when you’ve already lost everything once before? 

*While this is a series, each book will be standalone.

I absolutely loved this book.  Alexa was quite the firecracker and I loved watching her transform from a depressed, sad woman into a hot, passionate female.  Jace was the ULTIMATE book boyfriend.  Perfect in every way.  Baseball player turned soldier head over heels for his high school sweetheart…doesn’t get any better than that!
