Taima, a.k.a. Tai, is the last person people come to for help. He’s the fuck up…the bad boy…the guy that only looks out for himself.

Which couldn’t be further from the truth.

He’s fought hard to become the man he is today.  He’s a hero in the public’s eye. A firefighter that the young all the way to the old turn to for help at the lowest point in their lives.

What people don’t know, though, is that he’s no hero. He’s the reason his sister is dead, and he’ll spend the rest of his life trying to right that wrong.

Then one split second decision has him coming face to face with Mia Darling.  The woman changes his life, making him reevaluate everything he thought he had figured out, and showing him the tenderness he never knew he needed.

Just like always, though, his luck runs out.

When the smoke settles, Mia’s gone, and Tai realizes there’s no way he can live the rest of his life without her. He’ll show her just how hard a bad boy will fight to get his woman back, and he’s not opposed to fighting dirty.

Without ever meeting him, Tai represents Mia’s last trace of hope for the thing she holds dearest, her son. When presented with a very particular request by a desperate Mia, Tai sees a chance to help (even coming up with other more viable options) and simultaneously enjoy the time with this woman that captivated him at the first sight. 
Mia was just as captivated, and when Tai starts to interact with his son, she has no chance to resist (and let’s face it, no one could, they were adorable together, so much so, I found myself sighing every time). 

“You look like you’re in love with him,” my mother said. I smiled dreamily.

 “I wouldn’t say it’s love…yet. But it’s something,” I admitted. “I could fall for him easily…very easily.”

But when an unmeasurable tragedy falls upon them, Mia can’t deal with her emotions and heartbreak and pushes everyone way from her, including Tai. And, even though he understands, it leaves him hurt and powerless to help her. But don’t worry, soon enough she realizes her mistake, accepts him and his help, and never lets go.
Mia is such a strong and fierce character. I can’t even begin to imagine the kind of pain she went through, and that will never completely go away, but she showed an incredible resilience that left me in awe. When she realized she didn’t need to deal with all on her own, that in leaning on to him, she was giving both of them what they wanted the most,  allowing love to grow and develop, strengthening and healing them. 
Teaser Shock Advised 1
Tai is without any doubt my favorite LLV hero. His support and care for Mia, in the most difficult moments were unwavering, even more considering he was battling demons of his own, especially regarding his past. He was such a sweet and loving character, and so open about is feelings, I felt he really wore his heart on his sleeve, surprisingly considering his troubled past.
I had done nothing but think about her for the last three months, and now here I was, falling head over fucking heels for her, and she may or may not even feel the same way.
But don’t let yourselves be fooled, he may be a sweetheart through and through, but he wasn’t any bit less of an Alpha, always possessive and protective of Mia against all others. 
Their strong feelings and chemistry translated in some incredibly steamy HOT sex scenes. And their magnetism transpired every time they interacted, giving us a lot of sensuality charged moments.

And he had his wish, because Mia really gave herself to him, as did he to her, body, heart and soul. 
We were introduced to some amazing new characters, that make me look forward to the next books, and we got to a chance to see some familiar faces, which are always joyful, and bring a smile to our faces.
This book was truly an emotional and beautiful journey. It had all the usual elements of suspense, humor, sadness, friendship and love, present in Lani Lynn Vale’s books but taken to a whole new level. All these are the reason for which it quickly became my FAVORITE book by the author, to date. Very rarely does a book affect me emotionally like this one did. Yes, it was heartbreaking, but was also so very much more than that. I cried and suffered with them, but also shared their joy, happiness and humor. It completely draws you, from the very first chapter, and I literally couldn’t put it down until I devoured it, in one sitting. That’s how good it was. 
Their love proved that two broken souls can indeed  heal and make each other whole. And the beautiful heartwarming epilogue was the perfect wrapping bow for this amazing story.
A absolutely adored it!

Flash Point Book cover (1)


Masen Crisfield fell in love with Booth Jones when she was sixteen years old. Booth was the love of her life. The rock she needed to get her through the day. Then she rips his heart out while he’s deployed, leaving him wondering just what he’d done to warrant something so severe as a breakup that neither of them wanted.

Stubbornness is their middle name, and ten long years pass before either one of them try to breach the gap.

Circumstances force Booth to come home, and within an hour of him being back in his hometown, there she is. Right back in the forefront of his mind where he knows she shouldn’t be.

The day he starts his first civilian job at Kilgore Fire Department, his worst fear of seeing Masen is realized. And not only does he see her, but he sees her with another man. A fellow firefighter that he has to trust with his life.

It soon becomes apparent that they are both still just as much in love with each other now as they were the moment they met. But there’s a problem. Booth’s married, and Masen’s in a committed relationship.

They fight the pull with everything they have, but they’re both about to learn the true meaning of flash point as the two of their lives crash together. Their love consuming everything in its path.
