Firefighters Chancellor Shanahan and Tucker McBride have been together for years. They’ve been through the rough patches and come out the other side, although shift work, misunderstandings, and stubborn personalities can make things interesting. Chance knows that he and Tucker love each other, however, and neither of them have any interest in other people. So what happens when they meet another couple with a similar relationship? An unlikely friendship could take a possible turn.
Jake and Tor are a pair of cowboys who have weathered the storms of a decade together and have finally settled into their lives. They have a ranch, they have family, and they have each other. A rare vacation leads to a friendship, which leads to questions and a revival of long finished conversations. Is moving forward also a step back in time to issues they’ve already put to rest?
Well, this one was a surprise. I liked the Firefighters series and I loved Jake and Tor, but the four of them together? Despite my reservations, it was pretty good and engaging, and it is not even about the sex. There is some sex of course (not menage yet, just between the couples) but this book is more about the friendship and the strong bond that forms among the four men, something that slowly evolves into something bigger. The pace is great, things don’t seem rushed ( and that is awsome since the couples are well-established and have had their HEA).
The end was promising. I wouldn’t call it a cliffhanger, cause it didn’t feel like one, more like a promise of great things to come. So yeah, I’ll definately read the next one.
