Seven years is supposed to change the way you feel.   Sophie’s not supposed to still dream about the way Liam touched her or the way they moved together. When she heads back to Naugatuck Island, she assumes Liam doesn’t even live there any more. Whatever he once felt, it has to have grown cold by now. But Liam’s a firefighter. He knows better than anyone, never underestimate the power of a blaze. Those embers may appear cold, but nothing is ever as it seems.   Those embers? They're just waiting to burst into flames.

I love, love, love second chance romances.  I love when friends (or sibling's friends) turn into lovers.  This book had some of both-along with some other things I loved.

Liam and Sophie have been apart for seven years, ever since Sophie left to pursue a career in dance after high school.  She returns home-not knowing that Liam is still in their hometown.  However, once these two see each other again there's no doubt that the spark is still there between them.

I liked Sophie a lot. I felt I could connect to her on a very personal level.  She's stronger than she would ever think, stuck with a family trapped by their own demons and she still grows and is her own person.  I loved her relationship with her niece.  Her chemistry with Liam is off the charts hot.

Speaking of hot, Liam...well Liam is definitely a hot, alpha male.  I loved watching him with Sophie.  He took charge in such a delicious way.  He knew just how to handle her and I loved it.  I certainly wouldn't mind spending some time with him.

What I did have a hard time with was some of the supporting characters and their issues.  I feel like some were too involved in the story and somewhat took away from Liam and Sophie's journey.  Sohpie's mom in particular drove me up the wall much more than I anticipated or appreciated.

This wasn't my first Callie Harper book.  It won't be my last.  If you're looking for a quick, second chance romance I would recommend this book.
