Sean is a man with needs—needs that a lot of women were ready and willing to fulfill. Yet, the only woman that he wants to fulfill them dumped him for another man. A man who’s a member of his MC and is someone he has to see every single day and twice on Sundays.

He’s bitter and angry. He’s definitely not in the right frame of mind when it comes to dealing with women. Which is unfortunate for his new partner, Naomi, a fresh-out-of-school and totally green paramedic.


Naomi’s got enough problems on her plate. A brother who’s self-destructive and doesn’t care who he takes down with him. A man who she’s in love with but who doesn’t love her. A job that she hates because it is a constant reminder of what she can’t have.

Desperate to distance herself from her problems, she runs, taking the first job in her field that she finds willing to take on someone with so little experience.

The last thing she needs is a perpetually pissed off partner, especially when he sets her blood on fire.

But life doesn’t ask how much you can handle when it dishes out challenges. It just keeps piling them on until you’ve bested them or you’ve buckled under them.


Sean really doesn’t want to like his new partner, Naomi. He just wants to be left alone to live his life however he damn well pleases and without complications.

Naomi doesn’t care what he wants, she can’t be anything but herself. It isn’t long before she’s breaking down his walls and making him feel again. She’s trying to pull him closer and he’s pushing her away.

It’s not long before Sean sees the error of his ways. It’s too bad, though, that by the time he realizes she’s the one, Naomi’s already gone.

Sean and Naomi … be still my heart. These two are the real deal. They are everyday people, living their everyday life and seeking out what everyone else is looking for. Normalcy, acceptance and love.

Sean cannot stand partnering up with new people. He doesn’t like change and he wants things to run the way that he sees fit. He doesn’t want to like that cute, curly haired blonde tid-bit of a woman, but damn it if she doesn’t worm her way into his heart. Before he knows it, he sees Naomi. He really sees her and he likes it. Naomi is no non-sense and a badass in the medic. She can pull her own weight and jumps at the chance to work. Sean is totally down with that. He knows that she is who he needs riding on the back of his bike.

When he finally has Naomi there, someone else is chomping at the bit to take her away. What is not known is that this woman is a fighter. She won’t back down, so if someone is after her, she is willing to fight. With everything that Naomi has been through, she will be damned if her happiness will be compromised.

This story has quite a few ups and downs and I will admit that my heart was torn to pieces at one point. So much emotion, change and turmoil, although I promise that you will get your HEA.  Another big win in the book world for Lani Lynn Vale. Add Sean and Naomi to your shelf today!

Holy COW this book set my emotions on a whirlwind of crazy madness. I laughed, wanted to throat punch someone, cried, and fell in love all in the same book. I honestly can say Lani Lynn Vale sure can write. I don’t know where she comes up with this stuff but I can never put her books down.

Naomi just has all the luck. If bad luck counts that is. She was run over by her brother, yep…her own brother and is in love with someone that is untouchable. To get away from all the madness she moves and starts over in a new state with a new job. Clean slate and all.

Sean has had a bought a bad luck as well. He falls in love with a quickness but it never works out for him in the long run which has left a bad taste in his mouth.

Naomi and Sean are paired up as paramedic partners and actually work well together once Naomi makes her point that she’s not putting up with Sean’s crap.

I thoroughly enjoyed this book, it had everything I love in a story. I haven’t read a Lani Lynn Vale book I didn’t love. Naomi had some flare to her and Sean was intense. Absolutely ahhhmazing!!!

Lani Lynn Vale is married to the love of her life that she met in high school. She fell in love with him because he was wearing baseball pants. Ten years later they have three perfectly crazy children and a cat named Demon who likes to wake her up at ungodly times in the night. They live in the greatest state in the world, Texas. She writes contemporary and romantic suspense, and has a love for all things romance. You can find Lani in front of her computer writing away in her fictional characters world...that is until her husband and kids demand sustenance in the form of food and drink.
