Synopsis (from Goodreads):
Grace is a fixer. She's good at it, too. In her acupuncture practice, she fixes the community of Darling Bay, and in her personal life, she's rescued her sister too many times to count. Her love life, though . . . Grace doesn't think she needs help, especially not from a man whose very nickname is unhealthy.

Tox Ellis is the hazmat expert at the Darling Bay Fire Department, and he knows about harmful substances. He knows what gases to keep apart to prevent explosions. Why, then, can't he seem to stay away from Grace, the woman who seems to think he needs fixing?

Is Darling Bay ready for the chemical reaction Grace and Tox generate whenever they're in the same place at the same time? And who will be standing by to put out the flames?
The Firefighters of Darling Bay series

My Review:
fire at Twilight is sweet and fun. The characters are genuine and have great depth for such a quick read. Tox is your typical sexy firefighter, however, he has a dark shadow looming over him. He seems to attract disaster despite his best efforts. Grace is a quirky woman who is genuinely good-hearted; she wants to help anyone who needs helping. Though, she quickly discovers that it’s borderline judgmental and drives away the people she holds closest to her.

The storyline is not your typical, he’s rich and she’s poor, or they’ve got these deep dark secrets that will destroy their relationship if they ever came to light. They both do carry troubled issues from their pasts however, they really only pertain to the character’s current development—why they are the way they are. The story moves through Grace and Tox’s individual and combined journeys to figuring out how to be better people. They don’t fix each other and they don’t “complete” each other. They’re figuring out how to just be, with and without each other, and I liked that. It was a refreshing and feel good story that I definitely recommend to anyone looking for a light romantic read.

My Rating:
