Synopsis:

Sexy firefighter Logan Bailey is an expert at putting the wet stuff on the hot stuff—on and off duty. But he just did the unthinkable, and it wasn’t trading in his tube socks. He slept with his nemesis. His mortal enemy. The crazy redhead he loves to hate. Cara Goulding.

And no matter how much he wants to lie to himself, he has to admit, it was mind-blowing.

Cara will not be tempted by the one night she spent with prince dickhead—even if her traitorous body remembers every earth-shattering moment. It was a mistake and she’s stronger than that. She’ll just keep avoiding him and pretend it didn’t happen.

But the feuding small town of Tilikum might not be big enough for the both of them. Avoiding each other isn’t working. And with every moment they’re forced to spend together, the sparks get hotter, the flames grow brighter, and the tension borders on unbearable.

Until they both reach their breaking point and their fiery relationship explodes.

Author’s note: a sexy firefighter and the sassy redhead who drives him crazy. All the banter, delicious tension, a heartwarming family, and Kindle-melting steam. Enemies to lovers is as hot as it gets and these two are FIRE.

The Bailey Brothers is meant to be read in order. Start with book one, Protecting You.


This book was so good! I loved it. Cara and Logan were fire! I loved how they were enemies until one night changed it all. The push and pull of their interactions was so much fun! They chemistry and passion was off the charts. I also adored the sweetness and soft moments between them. Sigh. So adorable.

I have to admit that this would probably be a 5 star instead of 4.5 star read for me had I not jumped into the series with this book. I loved everything about the romance, but wasn’t quite on board with the Bailey-Haven feud or hunt for a treasure. That’s probably because I don’t have the history from the first four books. So I apologize for that. Oh, and I should add that I couldn’t stand Logan’s brotastic nicknames, but maybe they would have felt more natural if I had read the first books.

I’m so happy I read Chasing Her Fire. I tried another book by this author that was good but not great for me, and I wanted to give her another try. I’m glad I did! I can’t wait to go back and read the rest of this series.

    1. Well, they probably technically aren’t standalones with the theme that runs through them, but I started here and it was fine.

    1. I would love to hear your thoughts on the series if you read it. That first book is more of a novella and is the start of the couple who is also part of the second book.

  1. I had this book on my TBR but not the previous books. I just went and added the series so I can start at the beginning. Definitely good to know going in. So glad you enjoyed it!
