The third sexy and emotional novel in debut Avon author Lia Riley’s Brightwater series set in the mountains of Northern California

Sometimes the worst mistakes turn out to be the best…

Smoke jumper Wilder Kane once reveled in the rush from putting out dangerous wildfires. But after a tragic accident, he’s cut himself off from the world, refusing to leave his isolated cabin. When a headstrong beauty bursts in, Wilder finds himself craving the fire she ignites in him, but letting anyone near his darkness would be a mistake.

After her Hollywood life went up in smoke, Quinn Higsby decided to leave Tinseltown behind and returned to Brightwater to care for her ailing father. Spending her days in a small bookstore, her peaceful existence is up-ended by a fascinating but damaged man. Quinn is determined to not to be scared off by Wilder, not once she’s experienced the heat of his passions.

But when an arsonist targets the community and Wilder is accused, he must confront the ghosts of his past. Will his desire for Quinn flameout or will he be able to tame the wildness inside and rekindle a hope for their future?

My Thoughts:
This is the third book in this awesome series, and I have to say that it was my favorite. As much as I liked Sawyer and Archer, Wilder just worked for me. He had more demons and issues and he just seemed more "real" to me. I absolutely adored Quinn, who wouldn't love a book nerd that wears awesome shirts with sayings on them? Wilder is the one that left Brightwater after doing something as a kid and getting into fights. He became a firefighter and parachuting is how he got hurt and sent back to Brighwater. Quinn worked as a "fixer" in Hollywood until her boss's wife caught him trying to seduce her. Now,she works in a bookstore. Wilder is a recluse and Quinn is just the girl to put him in his place. It was instant chemistry between these two. There was also a family secret that was shared and Granny starts to come around. This book was truly a great read. If you missed my review of First last kiss, the first book in the series you can read it here, and Right Wrong Guy here

Lia Riley writes offbeat New Adult and Contemporary Adult romance. After studying at the University of Montana-Missoula, she scoured the world armed only with a backpack, overconfidence and a terrible sense of direction. She counts shooting vodka with a Ukranian mechanic in Antarctica, sipping yerba mate with gauchos in Chile and swilling XXXX with stationhands in Outback Australia among her accomplishments.

A British literature fanatic at heart, Lia considers Mr. Darcy and Edward Rochester as her fictional boyfriends. Her very patient husband doesn't mind. Much. When not torturing heroes (because c'mon, who doesn't love a good tortured hero?), Lia herds unruly chickens, camps, beach combs, daydreams about future books, wades through a mile-high TBR pile and schemes yet another trip. Right now, Icelandic hot springs and Scottish castles sound mighty fine.
