Falyn Fairchild can walk away from anything. Having already left her car, her education, and even her parents, the daughter of the next governor of Colorado is back in her hometown, broke and waiting tables for the Bucksaw Café. After every shift, Falyn adds to her shoebox of cash, hoping to one day save enough to buy her a plane ticket to the only place she can find forgiveness: Eakins, Illinois.
The moment Taylor Maddox is seated in Falyn’s section at the Bucksaw, she knows he’s trouble. Taylor is charming, breaks promises, and gorgeous even when covered in filth—making him everything Falyn believes a hotshot firefighter to be. Falyn isn’t interested in becoming another statistic, and for a Maddox boy, a disinterested girl is the ultimate challenge.
Once Falyn learns where Taylor calls home, everything changes. In the end, Maddox persistence is met with Falyn’s talent for leaving, and for the first time, Taylor may be the one to get burned.
Another enjoyable read by Jamie McGuire.
I loved finally getting to know the twins, Tyler and Taylor, or at least one of them. In the previous books they were mentioned, but we never really got any details on them. True to form, Taylor is definitely a Maddox boy.
There was some suspense and mystery, but when the surprise was revealed the story lost a little bit of interest for me. Fallon went from a strong independent woman to acting like a scared teenage girl. She was rather annoying in the second half of the story.
I can't wait for all of the Maddox secrets to be revealed. It seems like everyone is hiding something - and like Fallon said, for a family that is so close they have a lot of secrets!
