Veronica is a sophomore at the University of Texas. Austin is being stalked by a mysterious arsonist, who after burning down the campus library, strikes her dormitory next. She’s rescued by a hunky firefighter named Russell, and at the end of his shift, Russell takes her home and starts putting her life back together. But just when this starts looking like a run-of-the-mill damsel-in-distress romance, Russell proves to have some very interesting secrets, and a family that is not at all pleased at his interest in Veronica.
This is a story that reminded me a lot of Twilight, and you’ll have to decide for yourself if that’s a good thing or a bad thing. It’s well written for the most part, though it could have used the attention of a beta reader or two. The characters were interesting and engaging once things got going, and the author clearly put some thought into the backstory of Russell and his family. This is the first part in a series, and I hope the author continues it.
