July Dupree and Dean ‘PD’ Hargrove fell head over heels in love. When PD comes home to tell July the good news about joining the SWAT team as a tactical medic, everything changes.
July can’t fathom why PD would want to be a cop in this day and age. Wasn’t it enough that he already had a dangerous job with the fire department? Now he has to add another, even more dangerous, job to the equation? With so many cruel people in the world who make a sport out of hurting cops just because of the badge they wear, she has to make him understand. But when he refuses to listen to her reasoning, she feels she has no other choice but to issue an ultimatum: her or the SWAT team.
Dean doesn’t like ultimatums. He’s furious with July for putting him in the awful position of having to choose between a dream and her.
July never believes for a second that he’d choose the SWAT team over her, but she is wrong.
A year later, they’re both still in love with each other, but neither one is willing to budge regardless of their feelings.
July’s feelings for Dean haven’t changed, in fact her love for him has only grown. But seeing him living his life seemingly unaffected by the loss of what they had breaks her heart over and over each time she sees him.
Dean has a good poker face, though. He’s just going through the motions of his life until finally, the smoldering embers of his feelings erupt into a full-on blaze of emotion, burning through everything but his love for July. When the smoke clears, Dean wants to know if they can reignite the fire of their love or is he destined to live his life in a constant state of controlled burn?

(5 Stars)

Here is your PSA: This is part of a series, please read the previous stories before reading this.... in fact I think you should read all her books before you read this... as there is mention of things that happened in one of the other series... and lets just face it.. that's crazy to read in the middle of a series.

July has been in love with Dean from the moment she met him, and for 6 months they had a good thing going... but with holding herself back at times and not telling Dean everything, she freaks out every time he has a call out with SWAT.

Dean LOVES being with a first responder and he feels that SWAT is also part of his calling, but July hates it, and he isn't going leave his jobs. Catching the tail end of a conversation, July makes the tough choice of giving Dean what he needs, and its not her. A year later they are thrown back together, and both fight the attraction and love they feel for the other. Will they figure out a middle ground or just give up?

So right off the bat I wanted to cry and throat punch a heffer. These are things I found that only Lani Lynn Vale can bring out in me. July.... there is something about her character that makes me want to give her a big freaking hug. PD/Dean, I have a love hate with him... He jut proves that men are so clueless sometimes. Now this had a little something.... we will say different from the other books that Lani has written.... a bit more of the BDSM theme,  and I LOVED it!  In fact I want more from Lani that have the BDSM theme; I could totally see her rocking that! This book also proves that Lani is never predictable! 5 stars isn't enough for this, like 20 stars!
