Firefighter Jason "Jase" Weller and EMT Scott Bronson are living the perfect life. They work together in jobs they love, they live together, and in their downtime, they still can’t get enough of each other. It’s been six amazing years. Then on Christmas Eve, Jase’s former lover Elsa shows up with a six-year-old girl in tow. The strung-out junkie claims Kerry is Jase’s daughter and it’s his turn to care for her, and then she walks out.
Shocked at both the fact that Elsa is now a junkie and that he has a daughter he never knew about, Jase nonetheless steps up to the plate as her father and Scott offers his full support. Having an instant family comes with plenty of challenges, and the two men work to deal with sweeping changes in their lives and to make things right for Kerry.
It’s not going to be easy, and their new circumstances test them and their relationship like nothing ever has. They’ll need all the love they have for each other, and the love they discover for their daughter, to keep from breaking apart.
The title for this book is truly a perfect fit. It starts with Jase and Scott. Two guys who have been in a relationship for six years. They owned a house, one was a fireman the other an EMT. They had the same shifts so they were always together. Then one Christmas Eve a woman, Elsa, arrives and announces to Jase that Karissa (the six year old girl by her side) was his.
Elsa omg I wanted to beat her to death. She was abusive to Karissa. She called her horrible names and physically assaulted her. I spent the first 15 minutes of this book actively hating her.
So now Scott and Jase’s lives are turned around. A life they knew, gone. Where most people have nine months to process and plan; they pretty much are thrown into the deep end. And it takes its toll.
One thing that never changed in this book; no matter how hard times got or emotional. Scott and Jase never stop loving each other. Neither runs. They face it all and they do it together. And even though their sweet talk gave me a tooth ache at times, I admired their love. I don’t know many people or couples who could handle it as well as they did.
This is a story about the strength of love. That sometimes it’s not working up to it. This story was about being injected with a big dose of it and riding the high.
My heart practically burst with love. Sweet and awesome read.
