Safety in his arms?
In this First Response in Florida story, vet Lucy is happy with her quiet, ordered life. Until a tropical storm threatens her Florida Keys animal sanctuary, and the arrival of gorgeous, yet guarded, emergency medic Jackson Durand brings disorder – and desire!
I received a copy of this book from Mills and Boon via NetGalley in return for an honest review.
A story focusing on Lucy, a vet who runs an animal shelter in the Florida Keys. She left her familial home to escape a controlling relationship and a family who don’t offer the support she needs to further her independence. Jackson is an EMT whose commitment issues stem from his childhood. The setting is the build-up of a tropical storm to a hurricane forcing the couple into close physical proximity.
The scenes in the medical setting are atmospheric, but the animal shelter needs a greater focus. Lucy and Jackson are complex characters. The setting ensures that the reader gets to understand them despite the brief time period.
There’s an undeniable attraction with a passionate outcome and the sought after emotional connection.
