This story about Dean and Adeline, hit close to home for me purely because my son suffers with epilepsy and the few seizures he’s had definitely make life difficult. To contemplate Adeline having more than one seizure a day made my heart bled for her😢 Thankfully Dean showed her that there are still kind and compassionate people out there and that he still saw her for who she was, not what disability she had❣️
I’m looking forward to Chief’s story next as I think it’s going to break my heart even more 💔
Adeline meets Dean when her online date abandons her in a restaurant when she tell him she's about to have an epileptic seizure. There begins their romance. Dean wants to move forward to see where things go between them, wheras Adeline is more cautious due to experiences from people treating her weirdly due to her epilepsy. As their relationship progresses advances by her "creepy" boss are brought to our attention. Adeline is too nice and naive to see the attention for what it is and a work trip 5 hours away from Dean ends in disastrous consequences.
This is maybe one of out of the vast amount of Susan Stoker books I've read that I was a bit underwhelmed by. Whilst I still enjoyed it and it was a good read, I have read better from her. Dean was extremely full on to the point where even I was like "woah" this is intense and not in a good way. Susan's other lead males have all packed a punch but in a hot way. Adeline struck me as very "yes Dean, no Dean, three bags full Dean." the push and pull of their dynamics didn't really come across to this book as well it has in others for me.
Dean "Crash" was absolutely what I would describe as the "dream guy". He was thoughtful, caring, loyal, a little bossy at times, protective, handsome and let's not forget a Texas Hero, being that he is a San Antonio Firefighter and Paramedic! Moving on to Adeline, I love that Susan Stoker doesn't write "perfect" or "classically beautiful" female lead characters. They may be carrying a few extra pounds or not necessarily love everything about their body, or in a few of the books they have had some sort of handicap or barrier. Adeline was brave and independent even though she was epileptic and had to rely on her service dog to alert her to when she was going to have a seizure. She didn't let it hold her back even though at times she wanted to be like everyone else. I really got into the story from the first page and loved Dean and Adeline's instant connection. Where the plot was going was a little predictable but it didn't take anything away from the story as far as I'm concerned and Susan Stoker writes these Romantic Suspense's so fluidly that every single book in this series has gotten 5 stars from me so far!! ✴✴✴✴✴
Chief's book is up next and I cannot wait to get stuck in!!!
Adeline has epileptic seizures, is been a life long illness. When Dean sees she's in trouble he takes her into the into the fire station with her dog, so she can lay down to have her attack in the safety of the building surrounded by people with the knowledge needed to assist her. This is another beautifully written book with lots of background stories that bring these two people together and help them deal with what life has in store for them and Coco.
What a fantastic storyline. The world is far from perfect and it takes all sorts to make the world so how wonderful is it that an author picks up on our wonderful flaws and celebrates them in her own unique way Whoo hoo to that girl Adeline is doing a job she hates and a horrid boss and living a life she likes even less,Her service dog, Coco, is alerting her she’s about to have an epileptic seizure—and her frustrated blind date has left her to deal on her own. Enter firefighter Dean Christopherson, who escorts her to the nearby fire station, where she can suffer through her ordeal safe from injury and prying eyes. Dean is drawn to this wonderful woman in a way he can't explain he falls hard and fast but may risk losing her if he comes onto strong. Wonderful story with intrigue and subterfuge thrown in. who can resist a sexy fire fighter
