Genre: Christian Romantic Suspense

She battled every fire she ever faced.

He’s risking everything for the chance to belong. 

Veteran and therapist Natalie Atkinson watched her Army career explode in her face. All she ever wanted was to help people carry their burdens. Seeking a new future in Last Chance County doesn’t start so well when she’s the one being rescued from a client’s burning house. To make matters worse, now she’s stuck evaluating the truck and rescue squads for the fire department. When the chief overhears why she left her last job, she’s determined to prove to him and her boss that she’s still the right therapist to assess his crew. 

No matter if success takes everything she’s got. Fire Chief Macon James is the right man for the job. He doesn’t need a therapist interfering with the running of his crew or putting his position in jeopardy when a counselor is what tore his family apart. He’s got to get his firefighters to be a team, and he can do it without Natalie’s help. After an explosion destroys her car, it quickly becomes clear she might need him as much as everyone thinks he needs her. If these two stubborn hearts will surrender, they could have everything they want. 

Or it could all go down in flames.

Book Review

Expired Hope is the second book in the Last Chance Fire and Rescue series, but can be read just fine as a standalone. 

Right from the start, this book drew me into the action... and that action didn't let up throughout. Just when I would think the story was starting to wind down, a new and unexpected twist would keep me guessing again! And I enjoyed every single minute. A lot was going on, but it never felt too busy It was just enough to keep me interested in the action. 

While I enjoyed both the suspense and the romance in this story (both were done wonderfully), I think I most appreciated how it took on the subjects of PTSD and mental health. It did so in a way that felt genuine and seemed to normalize the need for counseling and the idea that it's okay to need help to deal with the tough stuff.

Overall, I thought this was a great read and one that fans of Christian romantic suspense are sure to want to check out.
