Title: Put Out
Series: Kilgore Fire Series #5
Genre: Romantic Suspense
Angie is a survivor. Anything you could throw at her, she could overcome.
After her father left her like a pile of unwanted trash, she began fighting. Fighting to build a life. Fighting to keep her child. Fighting to matter.
She thought she had it all figured out.
Then Bowen Race Tannenbaum walks into her life, turning it into a flurry of confusion, hope, and then ultimately despair. He tore down, brick-by-brick, her carefully constructed world, leaving her heart in tatters and longing for more. Such as a happily ever after, something that wasn’t ever going to happen for her. Not when she couldn’t give him what he wanted. He’d break her, and she couldn’t be put back together a second time.
Bowe wasn’t always so jaded, but when you keep drawing a losing hand, it tends to affect a man. He didn’t mean to lash out so carelessly. But he was so over being told no. He was done being lied to. He was through with being cheated on.
This time, his heart was getting what it wanted. If Angie wasn’t able to see what he was offering, what was right here in front of her, well then, he’d just have to damn well show her.
The new installment of the Kilgore Fire Dept series is another 4 alarm fire for me. Although I did not like Angie, the lead female character in this book as much as some in the past, I still found this book a hit. Of course Angie has grown up with a father who rejected his first attempt at a family in favor of an upgraded model so I guess she has some right to her attitude, but still, I just didn't connect with her like the other females in the series.
Now Bowe, the lead male character, him I liked right from the beginning! He's a nice guy that just seems to take a kick in the teeth from the women he lets in his life all the time. And now he has his sights on Angie. The only problem is...Angie has an ex who's as nuts as the day is long and now Bowe has walked right into that guys delusions.
As I said, I liked this book and give it 4 stars. I just didn't feel Angie was real likable. Also, when you read this book, be sure to read the Dedication. It was heartbreaking for me to read and understand a little bit about what the author has experienced in her life. And it made me wonder if some of the parts of this book were actual excerpts of her life experiences.
