What should’ve been an ordinary emergency call turned out to be something extraordinary.
Wanting to distance himself from his toxic parents, Trent Love moved to the quaint town of Blissville to begin a new life. What he finds is blazing chemistry with a hunky fireman who breathes new life into him.
Fearing they’re too different, Tucker attempts to extinguish the spark between them before it can ignite. How could a simple man like him compete with Trent’s life of wealth and privilege? Knowing you shouldn’t want something doesn’t make it go away, and Tucker’s desire for Trent continues to smolder.
Unwilling to accept their relationship is dead on arrival, Trent puts his resuscitation skills to good use. All he wants is a chance to prove he values Tucker’s wealth of character over meaningless material things. What do you get when you mix fire and oxygen: a five-alarm fire or a prescription for love?
Trent’s commitment to freeing himself from poisonous ties kindles a chain of events that have devastating consequences for both men. Is a relationship forged in fire strong enough to overcome these obstacles or is their love doomed to be just another bitter pill to swallow?
Prescription for love is a small-town, opposites-attract romance. It is the seventh book in the Road to Blissville series but reads like a standalone book. It contains sexually explicit material intended for adults 18 and older.
When Trent sees Tucker he knows he has been down this road before and unfortunately it was a dead end. But seeing Tucker again has given Trent renewed determination to try one more time for the gorgeous fireman to give him a chance. Yes, the two come from vastly different backgrounds and Trent’s wealth and job title of doctor definitely makes Tucker feel as though he will never really measure up or be considered suitable dating material. But Tucker let Trent get away once due to his insecurities and self-doubt and he has decided not to let that happen again. Now, the two men embark on a second try at love but the road may prove to be a bit rocky before it’s all said and done.
While Prescription for Love is the seventh novel in Aimee Nicole Walker’s Road to Blissville series, it is also said to be a standalone. However, know that the novel is built on the basis that Trent and Tucker have dated before and that Tucker essentially ran from the feelings he had for Trent due to his own insecurities over Trent’s wealth and status in the community. Due to the author’s ability to craft an interesting and cohesive story, I never felt as though I had missed out on their first date since it and its failure was mentioned right off the bat at the beginning of the novel which established this couple’s backstory quite nicely. The other immediate factor was the rich chemistry between Trent and Tucker that was apparent from the first time they meet over the pet adoption day that Tucker was volunteering at with his Grandmother. It was so obvious these two guys had unresolved lust issues and so the steamier side of their dating made sense right way.
This story flew off the page for me. It was warm, funny and romantic and the big reveal that nearly shattered poor Tucker was devastating to read. I was so glad when the author resolved that issue fairly quickly and realistically. Once again the groundwork that had been laid during the novel making these two guys not only obviously committed to each other but to being open with their communication led to the resolution at the end of the story and made it very plausible. I also enjoyed the team of firemen who were essentially like brothers to Tucker and how they quickly accepted Trent. Their wives and those quick side stories about them were also quite fun to read and the overall sense of community that surrounded our two main characters was really well done. I think the only detail that was a bit over the top for me was the lengths to which Trent’s parents went in order to control their son’s life. I understood the need for a ‘bad guy’ but their actions were really reprehensible and that aspect of the story felt a bit forced to me.
Despite that small annoyance, Prescription for Love was a solid romance that had really lovely characters and a beautiful story line that would be welcome by any who are looking for a good love story.
“There’s no way I can watch you squat in those shorts and not get a hard-on.” Trent had been nothing but honest with me, so I gave it right back to him. “We’ll work on our upper body today.”
Even with Trent looking deliciously sweaty, I was able to find my zone and work my shoulders, arms, back, and core abdominal muscles. Lifting weights was my version of yoga. I found my Zen and the endorphins pumping through my body would improve my mood and motivate me to keep moving throughout the day. Only when we returned to the locker room did I realize those mood-lifting hormones also amped up my libido.
“Did you want to shower here before we go to breakfast or wait until I drop you off at home?”
Trent looked over his shoulder at the shower room, which had both an open shower area and private stalls for those preferring privacy. We could so easily fit inside one of those stalls and—
“We better wait,” he said, wiping his body down to remove the sweat glistening on his skin. Damn, I wanted to lick him. A little bit of sweat didn’t turn me off at all, but he might think it was gross.
“Yeah, I want to lick you all over too,” Trent said, correctly reading the expression on my face. “And I will…someday.”
“Tease,” I groused.
