Reluctant Rescue

About the book: Caylee Compton has determined she'll never commit to a man, especially a too-handsome, fun-sucker like volunteer firefighter, physician, and ex-military Captain Levi Turner. Levi determines to change her mind. 

In the beautiful and exciting location of Lake Powell, Caylee fights valiantly to stay strong, but Levi's patience, kindness, and kisses might conquer even her commitment phobia.

My review: This was another one of the Park City Firefighter Romances and I LOVED it! I actually read this one first, so it was kind of fun to see the glimpses of Levi and Caylee that you got in Rescued by Love turn into real people in this one. 

I liked Caylee. She is a strong young woman who is not looking for a relationship. She pretty much goes on one date with a guy and then he's gone. She has some serious trust issues from her family situation as a child and that makes it hard for her to commit to anyone. And Caylee knows Levi already because he's the brother of her brother's fiance. She wants nothing to do with him.

Then there's Levi. He's just gotten home from Afghanistan. When he meets Caylee, he's intrigued. But it's pretty obvious that she's not into him. Then they're constantly thrown together on a group trip to Lake Powell and he sees what a risk taker she is and know that he wants to spend the rest of his life protecting her from herself.

This is such a fun novella! I loved the setting, I could almost see the red rocks of Lake Powell and smell the water. I loved the story, and the characters. I really loved the way that Levi was willing to step back and allow Caylee the time to grow into whoever she was going to become.

This is a great novella to spend an afternoon reading! Such a great escape. I need to go read more of this series!

I was sent an e-copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.
