About the Book

This handsome firefighter makes a living coming to the rescue, but Gin doesn't need a man to fight her battles.

After Raine s dad walked out, Ginevieve Lightly never lived in one place too long, a rambling lifestyle that defined her daughter s youth. When their car dies in Banister Falls, Wisconsin, Gin promises Raine they can stay until she finishes her senior year of high school. Gin will do anything to make sure her daughter has a bright future . . . a future that s compromised when Raine reveals she s pregnant.

Dan Moretti has only ever called Banister Falls home. After losing his best friend in a tragic accident, Dan devoted himself to responding to fires, rescuing the helpless, and guiding Cody Bennett, his best friend's son, through life. With Cody being the epitome of the good kid, it was an easy job. Until he says four little words: The baby is mine.

Knowing gossip of Raine's pregnancy will erupt sooner or later in the small town, Gin's reflex is to grab the suitcase and escape to a new city, a new life. But with each passing day, Gin's feet stay rooted in Banister Falls, and she falls a little more for this local firefighter who shows her not all men abandon women at the first sign of smoke.

As Gin and Dan do the best they can to guide the two teenagers through their early entry into adulthood, they discover together that romance can bloom in the rockiest of situations. And God can turn the pieces of a broken past into a beautiful new beginning. " (Goodreads)




My Review

I started this book wary that the story line could go so many different ways from reading the back. I started the first chapter and I really don't think I set it down from there. It's a pretty easy read but it packs a punch! The characters are very real and I really loved reading about all of them. There are two story lines flowing together, Gin and Dan and then Raine and Cody have their own story line. This is contemporary fiction but reads like a real life circumstance where two teenagers end up growing up faster than planned. I think the author did a pretty good job with the overall storyline. Cody is a devote Christian and gets judged pretty harshly for getting a girl pregnant. I think this part of the story line was brushed over a tad with how their peers reacted. I'd like to see what happens next, where do they go from here? The book ends rather quickly. I really enjoyed this book, and that is saying a lot since I'm rather picky when it comes to contemporary fiction.

5 stars.
