Content descriptions

Summary, etc.:
Carrie Hanwell is a female firefighter in Texas, and she's a total pro at handling other people's emergencies. But when her ailing mother asks her move to Boston, Cassie suddenly has an emergency of her own. She finds a job at a tough, old-school Boston firehouse, but firemen aren't exactly thrilled to have a "lady" on the crew--except for the infatuation-inspiring rookie. But she can't think about that, because love is girly, and it's not her thing. And her old captain had advised her never to date firefighters. Cassie can feel her resolve slipping, and it means risking it all--the only job she's ever loved, and the hero she's worked like hell to become.

    *Starred Review* Cassie Hanwell has never forgiven her mother, Diana, for leaving her and her father on Cassie's sixteenth birthday. So, a decade later, when Diana calls to tell Cassie that she's lost her vision in one eye and asks Cassie to move across the country to take care of her, Cassie is anything but eager. Now a firefighter in Austin, Cassie loves her job and her team until a run-in with the man who assaulted her on the night her mother left costs her both. Cassie reluctantly moves in with Diana and is forced to start over with a new fire department, one more sexist and backward-thinking than the one she came from. And then the worst thing in the world happens. Cassie, who has spent her adult life avoiding romantic attachments, falls head over heels for the handsome rookie at the station. The follow-up to Center's breakout hit, How to Walk Away (2018), in which Cassie had a brief cameo, has all the hallmarks that made readers fall in love with the previous book: an appealing (if guarded, in this case) heroine, a compelling love story, a tearjerking twist, and a thoroughly absorbing story. Another winner from Center. Copyright 2019 Booklist Reviews.
