(From the publisher):
Brooke Nichols spent her entire childhood bouncing through states, school districts and more than a few of her parents' ill-conceived "adventures." Now, she's finally found some stability. Engaged to a gorgeous, gainfully employed businessman -- who always calls when he says he will -- Brooke is eager to settle down once and for all. No alarms, no surprises.
Certainly, she would never consider a relationship with someone like her fiancÚ's best friend, firefighter Jake McBride. With his frequent footloose jaunts and a career that involves leaping into dangerous situations, Jake is everything Brooke's fiancÚ is not: raw, spontaneous and passionate. But passion isn't everything... is it?
As Jake keeps pushing Brooke's boundaries, and her buttons, the girl who hates surprises might just end up surprising everyone, especially herself.
