FIREBALL by Nazarea Andrews is now live and just 99 cents for a few days only!
Dempsey Jones has been a nuisance my entire life, the straight-laced Boy Scout grown up to be a firefighter, of all things. He was the one helping kittens out of trees and old ladies cross the road while I was lighting cherry bombs with my best friend in abandoned buildings, and now that we’re all grown up—even if my Dad doesn’t agree—he’s still just as annoying.
Taite Ridley has been a constant my whole life, the curly haired mischievous daughter of the police chief, charming and devious and alluring. She was wild in ways I never dared to be and too big for our little town. But she’s here, a small town cop, and I can’t avoid her, even if I wanted to.
And I don’t want to.
It’s like mixing fire and gasoline and when these two collide, someone is gonna get burned…
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
FIREBALL is book one in the River Street Bar series and is actually my first read by author Nazarea Andrews! This is a contemporary standalone with a small town vibe.
Taite is the daughter of the town’s police chief and a cop herself. Dempsey is the son of the mayor and a firefighter/paramedic (swoon worthy in itself!). When the police department and the fire department go head-to-head in a competition to raise money for the town, Dempsey and Taite find there’s more at stake then who will be the victor!
These two have known each other their whole lives and have been on this crazy circle of friends to enemies to friends…with benefits! Ever heard the saying, “a thin line between love and hate?” Yeah, Taite and Dempsey are really riding that line! I loved the banter between them, it was funny, snarky, sassy but also sometimes sweet. They spent half the book snarling at each other and the other half trying to keep their hands off each other (wink, wink)!
Other than the competition the town’s in and a few scenes here and there, there’s not a whole lot of over the top drama. This story is mostly a fun, sweet (but not TOO sweet) romance…just two people trying to overcome their fears and learning to trust in LOVE! There’s also a ton of secondary characters which are all cool and add to the storyline but which made it a bit confusing at times.
Overall, I thoroughly enjoyed this book! Told from dual POVs with a happy ending. I received, read and voluntarily reviewed an ARC of this book.
Nazarea Andrews (N to almost everyone) is an avid reader and tends to write the stories she wants to read. Which means she writes everything from zombies and dystopia to contemporary love stories. When not writing, she can most often be found driving her kids to practice and burning dinner while she reads, or binging watching TV shows on Netflix. N loves chocolate, wine, and coffee almost as much as she loves books, but not quite as much as she loves her kids. She lives in south Georgia with her husband, daughters, spoiled cat and overgrown dog. She is the author of World Without End series, Neverland Found, Edge of the Falls, and The University of Branton Series. Stop by her twitter (@NazareaAndrews) and tell her what fantastic book she should read next.
