She’s at a crossroads. Regan Sinclair swore nothing would ever bring her back to Sapphire Creek. But a failed marriage and unemployment are strong motivators. It’s time to brave the demons she left in her past. Alone. He thought she was through with him. Gavin McCabe rarely thinks of Regan, or the one incredible night they spent together. Not since she walked out of his life without a backwards glance. But when she walks back into his life, he sees the opportunity for answers. And maybe a second chance for love. Neither see love coming…and it’s coming in hot. An overwhelming attraction flares to life every time the two of them are near each other, but their heat is quickly overshadowed. Their tight knit community is facing an unknown threat and Regan seems to be in the middle of it. Can she leave the past in the past and find solid ground with Gavin before this unknown menace crushes their burgeoning relationship?
This debut novel from Carmen Cook offers a second chance love with drama, danger, and a hot romance. Regan is rebuilding the friendships from her past and reconnecting with her sisters. Gavin is juggling being a single dad with owning his own security business. They reconnect and sparks fly. What really shone through in Coming in Hot was the closeness of the group of friends. The group is there to support, love, and encourage each other. They are a great group of characters and I look forward to their stories being played out in upcoming books. Writing style flows smoothly and you’re hooked to see what is going to happen next. This is not a cliff hanger book though some of the secondary storyline/issues where not solved/explained so I’m hoping they will be in upcoming books. A very good book debut and looking forward to her next book.
