When Gage Evans gets a look at his hot nurse, he's smitten immediately. Too bad he's given the nurse the impression he's some kind of daredevil. It couldn't be further from the truth. Gage is a college journalism instructor writing a series of guest columns that require him to jump into new experiences -- a fun bucket list, but one that does nothing to convince Ben he's not an adrenaline junkie.

Fresh off his latest heartbreak, nurse Ben Griggs is wary when one of his patients shows an interest in him -- especially when that patient showed up in the ER after a motorcycle accident. Ben's ex was a biker, a friend with benefits, and he dropped Ben cold when someone more interesting came along. Ben isn't the kind of guy who can hold the interest of an adrenaline junkie like Gage Evans for long. The last thing he wants is to lose his heart to the wrong man again.

The more Ben gets to know Gage, the harder he is to resist. He can only hold on for the ride and keep his guard up as much as he can. But Ben's lack of trust seriously gets in the way of building a relationship, and Gage will only be patient so long. Can he trust Gage enough to give his heart, or are they destined to have a fling that goes nowhere?

This is a m/m romance. It is Book 6 in the Ashe Sentinel Connections series, but it can be read as a standalone.

February 20 - Hearts on Fire Reviews

4.5 stars

Ben Griggs is weary of relationships thanks to a couple of heartbreak in his past. He sees himself as a filler for someone, not exciting enough to hold their attention for long and needs to protect his heart. His last relationship was a biker who dumped him when someone else came along.
     When teacher Gage Evans ends up in the hospital after dumping a motorcycle, the attraction between him and his nurse is obvious. Ben tells him he doesn't date bikers or adrenaline junkies. Gage is far from both but Ben won't let him explain. After a one night stand though, Ben begins to find Gage more and more irresistible.
     First of all, I loved both of these characters. They both have trust issues and things in their pasts that have made them vulnerable. Each has a female best friend. Alex and Chloe are the perfect supporting characters for the guys. I wish we got to see them all meet. I loved the sweet vulnerability of Ben. He has such a hard time believing someone could actually want him long term since it's not been his experience in the past. He just needed to open his eyes and heart and realize the men in his past weren't the ones for him. They were the fillers, not him.
     Gage had his own issues with his past and his own problems with feeling wanted. He'll do whatever he has to do to prove that he isn't what Ben thinks he is. He keeps his own fears hidden. He's patient yet persistent with Ben. He doesn't want to push too hard, but he doesn't want to lose what he feels could be the best thing either of them has had.
     This book was all about letting go of your fears and believing in love and trust. The writing was excellent and it flowed so easily. Overall it was a sweet story with some hot, sexy scenes in the mix. This was book six in the series, but can be read as a standalone. I didn't realize it at the time, but with how good this one was, it makes me want to read the others.
