My rating:

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.

Things are about to go boom.

I received a complimentary copy of this book for review consideration.

In Review: My Thoughts

Sarina Bowen has done it again. Fireworks was amazing. Skye and Benito totally won my heart with their sweet and sexy second chance romance. The flip back and forth between the present and the past was a great way to get the full story when it came to Skye and Benito.

Ok, I just have to say Skye is probably one of my new favorite heroines. I thoroughly enjoyed her character and found her very relatable. I also giggled like a twelve year old whenever her traffic map penis was brought up. How mortifying for her, but hilarious for everyone who saw it. Both past and present Benito were amazing. I think I fell for him just a little bit, too.

Fireworks made me swoon. Hard. Skye and Benito were so obviously meant to be. They were easy to root for. It made me a little sad that they were separated all these years over a lie and manipulations, but I don’t want to get into that. It’s best for you to discover the full story on your own. It’s a good one. Not only is the romance good, but the suspense was a nice little addition. Whew, it had me on the edge of my seat more than once. I was here for all of it. But, you know, mostly the romance because that’s how I roll. Gotta get my bookish swoons and sexy times in.

I just love the True North series and Fireworks was a perfect addition. Not only did I enjoy the new storyline — and couple — but I loved seeing more from some favorites from earlier in the series. I don’t know how many more books Sarina has planned for this series, but I can promise you I will gobble them up as long as she writes them. It’s undoubtedly one of my favorites right now.

Favorite Quotes:

The heart is a fool, and love at first sight is a vicious bitch. She doesn’t care who she burns or how much destruction is left in her wake. She will eat you up and spit you out.

“With you, there’s no such thing as casual. The fire I feel for you won’t ever go out.”

About Sarina Bowen

Sarina Bowen writes steamy, angsty contemporary romance from Vermont's Green Mountains. (Her ancestors began logging and farming Vermont during the 18th century. These were rugged, outdoor types without benefit of a laptop or a good latte. It boggles the mind.)

Sarina enjoys skiing, skating and good food. She lives in Windsor County, Vermont, with her family, eight chickens and too much ski gear and hockey equipment.
