Brock Ferguson knew he might run into his ex-boyfriend, Vincent Geraldini, when he took his first job as a police officer in Carlisle. Vincent's attitude during a routine traffic stop reminds Brock why their relationship didn't last.
What Brock doesn't expect is finding two scared children in the trunk of a Corvette. He's also surprised to learn the kids' mother is Vincent's sister. But his immediate concern is the safety of the two children, Abey and Penny, and he offers to comfort and care for them when their mother is taken into custody.
Vincent is also shocked to learn what his sister has done. For the sake of the kids, he and Brock bury the hatchet-and soon find they have much more in common than they realized. With Abey and Penny's help, they grow closer, until the four of them start to feel like a family. But Vincent's sister and her boyfriend-an equal-opportunity jerk-could tear down everything they're trying to build.
I want to start out by saying I’ve read every book in Andrew Grey’s Carlisle Cops Series. I will say you can absolutely read them as standalones but I will also say that reading them in order will make the depth of these characters and the connection they have with each other much stronger.
In Fire and Hail we have MC’s Brock and Vinny. Brock is a cop for the police department. He works traffic right now and while on duty he encounters something many of us would never want to find. Two kids locked in the trunk of a car on a sweltering day. Two amazing and wonderful kids. Penny and Abey are so fabulous trust me! You’ll love them in an instant. They are also the kids of Brock’s ex’s sister.
Whenever kids are put into a story it adds a warmth to the story. Even though the reason Penny and Abey end up in Vinny and Brock’s life is horrific; I melted with the emotions they pull out of the two MC’s.
I absolutely LOVE this series and this newest addition is without a doubt a wonderful welcome. It’s so awesome to catch up with some characters from the series. I loved how Brock and Vinny’s “go to” friends were Donald and Carter. They are my most favorite couple in this series so it was a HUGE treat for me!
I hope there are more books in this series but if there isn’t then I’ll just be re-reading these for a long time!
