Skye Copeland is on paid leave from her broadcasting job after accidentally drawing a pecker on the traffic map.
Let that sink in. Like it’s her fault the traffic pattern created a perfect schlong?
Skye isn’t laughing. She needs this job. And that’s the only reason she’s willing to chase down a story in her least favorite place—that hell on earth known as Vermont.
A quick trip. In and out. Much like - never mind. She can sneak into the town that once tried to break her, get the story and slide back into the good graces of her producer. Easy peasy.
But things go sideways the moment she steps over the county line. Her stepsister is running from a violent drug dealer. And the cop on the case is none other than Benito Rossi, the man who broke Skye’s teenage heart.
His dark brown eyes still tear her apart. And even as she steels herself to finally tell him off after twelve years, the old fireworks are still there.
What can I say about Fireworks? It’s a beautiful second chance romance that will keep your hopes up for everyone.
Skye’s past wasn’t great and the one thing that gave her comfort and protection was the one thing that was ripped away from her. Benito. A lot of heartbreak and distrust cause these two to separate yet the truth won’t allow them to stay apart. It may take over a decade for these two to figure it all out but once they do, it’s worth it.
I thought the story was good and I’ve always enjoyed Bowen’s writing style. It’s filled with just the right amount of description and isn’t over the top. It’s flows well and it just easy to read and easy to get enthralled in.
I have one challenge for anyone that reads Fireworks. Prove to me that you didn’t fall in love with Benito. I’ll wait. For a very long time. I don’t even need to recap the things that he did to make me fall in love with him because you’ll experience it yourself. There’s that extra something special about him that will have you wrapped around his finger.
So overall, I enjoyed Fireworks and if you don’t read it, you are missing out on some pretty spectacular moments.
