When Evie McGraw shows up as beautiful and sexy as ever he can't help but worry that she'll become a distraction. Staying away isn't an option though. These two have history.

Set The NIght On Fire
Set The Night On Fire by Jennifer Bernard, is the first book in her Jupiter Point series and Ms. Bernard hits this story out of the park. Jupiter Point is a city in northern California where you can see the stars better than anywhere else. The people of Jupiter Point say “Remember to look up at the stars.”
The hero is Sean Marcus, former town bad boy who left Jupiter Point thirteen years prior after spending a night in jail. He returns as the leader of the Jupiter Point Hotshots wildfire crew. He is out to prove that he is no longer that troubled boy and can now be trusted. The heroine is Evie McGraw, the town sweetheart who has a secret. She has never talked about that night thirteen years, the night that changed her life. Sean is the only other person who knows what really happened that night.
The minute Sean sets eyes on Evie his plan to stay out of trouble goes up in smoke. Evie is all grown up and beautiful. Sean is the only person Evie can talk to about that night. She believes he is the one to help her turn her life around. Evie gave up everything to protect her parents but now she has to make a decision. Should she keep silent about what happened or put her heart on the line and let Sean help her heal from the past?
This was a fun and entertaining story with loveable characters that you want to support and cheer on hoping for that happy ending. The characters were well written, authentic and complex. The story line was riveting and kept my attention to the very end. I genuinely enjoyed reading this book and had trouble putting this book down. I highly recommend this book, and all others previously written by Jennifer Bernard to all readers and I cannot wait for the next story in this series.
Set the Night on Fire is the story of Sean Marcus & Evie McGraw. Sean was Evie's brother's friend. After his parents were killed in a plan crash, Sean went to live with the McGraw's until he disappeared. When Sean came back, he was a hero & in charge of creating a hotshot team in Jupiter Falls. he wants to prove to the town that he isn't a screwup.
Evie has opened a gallery in her hometown showcasing photographs. She dreamed of traveling the world taking pictures but gave that up to help take care of her mother after her diagnosis of Parkinson's. Sean saved her one night & is the only one that knows what happened. Sparks fly when Evine & Sean meet back up again. The chemistry between them is hot & intense. Will Sean gain the respect of the town? Will Evie keep her secret or realize it's time to stand her ground & let it out?
Jennifer Bernard has a talent for drawing the readers into the story & her characters lifes from the very beginning. By putting Sean in a life or death situation, she's ramped up the danger in the first chapter & has the reader emotionally vested in his survival. she then keeps you involved with every twist & turn on Evie & Sean's journeys. Evie is on a journey of self discovery. She needs to learn that what happened wasn't her fault & that it is time to live & love again. Sean's journey is to get past the shame of his childhood & open his eyes to the truth. He is worthy of love & the town has always supported him, not looked down on him.
The characters are well thought out & realistic. The narrative is descriptive & paints the scenery in your mind as you read. I could place myself in each scene & watch it all unfold. The sex scenes were loving & tasteful, even when Sean was still trying to say he wasn't in love. The tenderness he felt was written into every gesture & action. the supporting characters give depth & richness to the story & lead the way to a possibility of numerous books. I loved Josh & his interactions with Evie's cousin Suzanne. His quick wit & sarcastic humor gave a lightness to scenes that were dark with tension. I can't wait to read the story of Suzanne & him. I would recommend you settle down with this book when you have time to read it from cover to cover. I couldn't put it down.
I received an ARC from the author in exchange for an honest opinion.
