The Stokes and Escamilla families have
always been close. Their kids have grown up together and the
males of the household are all members of the same firehouse.
But is there more history here than the kids know? And what
will happen when thing finally blow up?
Lauren Stokes and Seth Escamilla have
been close friends for years. They tell each other about
their loves and their lives. But one thing that Seth has
never figured out is that Lauren has been in love with him for
years. But, what will happen when during a fateful family
get- together, Seth accidentally injures Lauren? Especially
when he takes her home to care for her, and sees her in a bit
of a different light. Now he is confused by his emotions.
But just as Lauren and Seth start to explore their feelings,
things with their parents go “super nova” and nothing will
ever be the same. Will their new and old relationships be the
fallout of their parent’s deeds?
Wow pull up the tissues for this one. I made the mistake
of reading Where there’s Smoke on my e-reader
while at work and then I had to explain why I was crying. I
don’t recommend this awkwardness to anyone, so make sure you
are reading it at home. I loved how the main characters both
were forced to “grow up” during this story. I was encouraged
that the author didn’t take the short route and gloss over the
hurt that these characters felt. I also hope there will be
more stories about the hot Firefighters in Seth’s house. I
found Where there’s Smoke was a very well
written story with not only hot love scenes but also hot
emotions. That is what compelled me to make Where
there’s Smoke a Joyfully Reviewed title for April.
