Cedar Ridge, Colorado, is famous for crisp mountain air, clear blue skies, and pine-scented breezes. And it's the last place Lily Danville wants to be. But she needs a job, and there's an opening at the hottest resort in her hometown. What has her concerned is the other hot property in Cedar Ridge: Aidan Kincaid-firefighter, rescue worker, and heartbreaker. She never could resist that devastating smile . . .
The Kincaid brothers are as rough and rugged as the Rocky Mountains they call home. Aidan has always done things his own way, by his own rules. And never has he regretted anything more than letting Lily walk out of his life ten years ago. If anyone has ever been in need of rescuing, she has. What she needs more than anything are long hikes, slow dances, and sizzling kisses. But that can only happen if he can get her to give Cedar Ridge-and this bad boy-a second chance . . .

This was such a fun and funny read and I loved all the antics that the Kincaid brothers got themselves up to. Aiden – firefighter, SAR crew and resort helper – is the focus here and while there was so much to like about him, I found his object of interest and flame of the past, Lily, much harder to tolerate, for all the excuses she gives for holding herself back from Aiden. For this reason, I found it hard to stand behind Aiden/Lily together and this has definitely affected my overall rating of this book.

That being said though, I still think I want more of the hilarious Kincaid antics that actually kept me up all night.
