COLORADO FIREMAN (4.5) by C.C. Coburn: Firefighter Adam O’Malley has kept his family and friends at a distance ever since his best friend died in an accident when they were teens. Then he rescues widow Carly Spencer’s little boy from a burning building and his life changes. With no place to go, Carly and her four children accept the O’Malleys offer of a place to live — in the apartment over the barn that Adam had been living in. He’s initially resistant to the attraction between them and the undeniable appeal of her children, but when Carly is charged with arson, Adam will stop at nothing to protect them all. Filled with charm, angst, wit and romance, Coburn’s latest hits all the high points for a romantic read.
