Paige’s Review – Fire and Foreplay (Hope Falls #14) by Melanie Shawn

Hands down this is my favorite book in the series. I don’t think Gabe and Adriana could be any sweeter. ~ Paige, Guilty Pleasures 

Stand-alone Hope Falls romance, complete with HEA–and plenty of heat and heart along the way!

One look…
That was all it took for Gabe Maguire to realize something was missing in his life. After beating cancer and returning to the cage to claim victory in the octagon, Gabe was ready to settle into his life in Hope Falls as a firefighter. The sexy MMA champion was grateful to be alive but still felt like he was just going through the motions until he laid eyes on her.

One promise…
That was what Adriana Hale was determined to keep. As a young, single mother raising her twin girls and her late cousin’s son, Adriana was willing to sacrifice anything for her kids, including her heart.

One night…
That was what brought them together, but could it also be what would tear them apart. After realizing a connection that will change everything, will Adriana and Gabe find the happiness and love they both deserve or will fate have other plans for them?

**Intended for 18+

I enjoy this series and the characters in Hope Falls but Fire and Foreplay is my favorite in the series. I loved everything from the first page to the last. I read the book in one sitting. I couldn’t put it down!

Both Gabe and Adriana are dealing with life. Gabe has moved across county , overcoming the odds of cancer and restarting his career both as a MMA fighter and firefighter. Adriana is running her own business, raising twin 3 year old girls , a 9 year old son and dealing with loss of her cousin.
All it took was one look and Gabe knew he was a goner. I loved the instant attraction and chemistry that these two possessed. He was thoughtful and knew what Rina needed. He wanted to be her rock and her everything.

Not everything was easy for this pair but they were determined to make their relationship their own. Adriana knows she has 3 little people who depend on her and she definitely put their needs before her own.

The ending was perfect for this family however you won’t get through the last few chapters without crying. You might need a tissue or two but it was worth it.
