Last Chance Fire and Rescue

What will it cost him to save her from the flames?

Veteran and therapist Natalie Atkinson is all about facing fears and surviving. After all, she's been there, done that, and she's ready for a new future in Last Chance County. Even if it includes helping the incoming Fire Chief confront his own issues to lead his fractured team.

Fire Chief Macon James has finally come home to do the job he's always longed for, and he doesn't need a therapist interfering with the running of his crew. More, she's put them in jeopardy by insisting she "train with them"-a liability that might just get them killed. The way he sees it, she's just another counsellor, interfering in ways that destroy lives.

When an explosion destroys her car it seems Natalie is a magnet for trouble. Is she the target of a stalker? Macon has no choice but to stick around and find out. But getting close to Natalie means discovering her secrets...and risking the chance she'll discover his.

But her so-called stalker isn't giving up. And when his worst fears ignite, with Natalie right in the middle, Macon will have to become the leader the team so desperately needs if they hope to save her life.

The second breathtaking book in the Last Chance County Fire and Rescue series!

My Perspective

Expired Hope is full of action and keeps you on your toes to the very end. Besing takes you on such a fun journey, and of course having a hunky fireman makes it even more exhilarating to read! But not only is it intense, it’s got great character growth in it. Macon and Natalie have some things in their past that they just need to deal with – not necessarily in person, moreso mentally. And Besing weaves it perfectly between the pages of the book.

If you love fast paced story lines, nail biting scenarios, twists and turns, romance, and firefighters – this is the book for you. You don’t necessarily need to read book one in the series in order to follow along, however I would recommend reading it anyways because it’s great! I highly recommend Expired Hope. I can’t wait to see what comes next both in this series, and from Besing as a writer!

I received a complimentary copy of this book. I was not required to write a favorable review. All thoughts and opinions are my own.

Rating: 4 out of 5.
