Contemporary Romance featuring a forty-four year old hairy chested firefighter hero and a thirty-one year old school teacher heroine whose one night stand on New Year's Eve becomes much more...

Seven years ago, the once overweight Jessica Mulligan made a pact with her best friend that ended up changing her life for the better. Now sixty pounds lighter, Jessica’s self-confidence has soared, but her longtime firefighter crush still won’t notice her.

What she doesn’t count on is catching the eye of his boss, the much older and handsome Captain Douglass Finley, who thinks she’s perfect in so many ways…

Three years ago, Doug Finley’s life took a turn for the worse when his wife admitted to an affair with their next door neighbor. Other than the possibility of a promotion to Deputy Fire Commissioner, the only thing he looks forward to is weekends with his eleven-year-old daughter. With his forty-fifth birthday around the corner, his love life is in the toilet. The ritzy New Year’s Eve bash he has been roped into feels like torture, until he spies a vision of beauty eating chocolate covered strawberries like she’s making love to them…and all he can think about is making love to her.

When Jessica admits she never had an orgasm, he’s determined to give her the ultimate New Year’s fantasy she’ll never forget.

But can he convince her they belong together for longer than one night?

In a Nutshell: A woman slims down to become hot for a former crush and ends up catching the eye of an attractive older man.

What I Liked: I love that the hero is not a pretty boy. While I love men of all ilk, I find a distinct lack of burly, hairy-chested, salt-of-the-Earth heroes, and Doug is just that. There is also an age difference between the hero and the heroine. While it's not a HUGE difference I like that this book portrays a real couple with a real possible situation. Jessica is all kinds of spicy and the crush she lots 60 pounds for is a tool. I love that Jessica finally discovers her self-worth with Doug.

What I Didn't Like: The obvious misunderstanding. A lot of contemporary romances fall back on the misunderstanding as a plot device and while the antagonist stews it along there is still that situation.

Overall Impression: Hot sexy fireman, and bombshell heroine. WIN WIN.
