“Love is a responsibility. Love is a promise. Love is a life sentence.” – Grandpa Doug
Hotshot Evan Bishop was taught at a very early age that love was something to be taken seriously. The thirty-four-year-old alpha firefighter had only loved one woman his entire life, his childhood sweetheart who just told him she was engaged to another man. So when he locks eyes with a blue-eyed, blonde bombshell who has him falling fast at first sight, his instinct is to deny it, ignore it, and resist it.
Actress Shayne Fox was taught at a very early age that love was a luxury that she couldn’t afford. From growing up in foster care to working in Hollywood, the beautiful ingénue's only concern was survival not love. So when she locks eyes with a tall, dark, and sexy stranger who has her wanting something that she never allowed herself to feel, her instinct is to dismiss it, suppress, and avoid it.
He was used to being in control of all things at all times but would he be able to control his heart? She was used to life giving her lemons but would she recognize it when it gave her love?
Sometimes the path of least resistance is the one that is the hardest to take.
Amazing Contemporary Romance
Evan & Shayne's story was amazing! Melanie Shawn had me crying at the end of Chapter One, but laughing, sighing, and cheering the rest of the time. Evan had some of the best romantic lines, and Shayne was so amazing in her interactions with not only the other adult characters, but the kids too! Sad that we won't get more Hope Falls until next year, but I love this town and its community.
Two wounded hearts one great love story!!!

I loved these characters so much. Their authentic brokenness will capture you from the begging. Watching these two unintentionally break down each others walls and ultimately open themselves up to love and something bigger than themselves is a real pleasure. Not to mention Hope Falls is one of the most amazing small town series you will ever come across.
If you pick up this book don’t be fooled into thinking you will put it down agin until it is finished. The sexy times will make you blush but the sweet times will keep you turning the pages until you reach the last.
A must read!!!
I wasn’t sure what to think of this book after I started it, because at around 25%, there was little to no dialogue between the hero and heroine. But I ended up absolutely loving it.
Evan and Shayne were perfect for each other. They were both a bit guarded, and it worked perfect for them. I loved the little things Evan did for Shayne, and how much the secondary characters played a role in this story. A fantastic read, that has me wanting more of this series!!!
