Jane’s been battling scars both physical and mental—having lived through a devastating house fire years ago—so she’s hesitant when her brother’s best friend, Christian, offers to help quell her family’s residual fears of fire. Jane’s mind is the epitome of once burned, twice shy, but her heart has other plans.

Is interesting how people are always named something in the romances. And usually things like that can create lots of problems. So Christian is considered a playboy, but in reality he never really had a serious relationship because no woman has ever captured his mind.
But Jane is such a good person. She suffered so much in life, but still finds will to go on and try to protect her children. She lost her husband and had severe trauma after a fire destroyed her house, but after months of rehab now she’s more independent and really trying to find a new life.
I liked this relationship, it’s mature and it took a great deal of trust to Jane actually accept Christian in her live and even more to understand and deal with his work as a fire fighter after what happened in her past and how she lost the person she loved to a fire.
