ABOUT THIS BOOK
After facing the same health scare that took her mother, adult film star Vera Eastman sets out on a road trip to finish her mom’s bucket list. First stop, the hometown she escaped the moment she graduated. Her defiant arrival puts her face-to-face with her first love—her first everything—Jack Reeves.
Jack’s still the guy who can steal her heart with a smile, but he hasn’t forgiven her for leaving, and avoiding him proves difficult. Not only is he her grandma’s neighbor, but Grandma pays Jack to mow the lawn shirtless, and his firefighter job has him frequently rescuing Vera, as her ability to find trouble—was it her fault the ladder on the water tower broke?—becomes as formidable a matchmaker as her grandma.
Small-town-itis must be contagious. That’s the only explanation for Grandma’s stupid cat being in love with Jack’s damn dog, for Vera’s sudden urge to move home, and for her falling for Jack all over again. Eating chocolate body paint out of the jar can’t even help her with this mess.
I wasn't sure what to expect when I picked up FIRE TRUCKS, GARTER BELTS, & MY PERFECT EX by Heather Novak but I am so glad I did because inside the cover of this book is a wonderful story about friendship, family (the ones that you choose as well as the ones that you're born with), and finding exactly where you're supposed to be.
Vera left her hometown in a haze of anger and rebellion all those years ago and she has made a name and a business for herself, alongside her two closest friends, in the adult entertainment industry. She is making a difference as well as a fortune and she hasn't really looked back since. But when a health scare makes her stop and think, Vera decides to tick off a few things off her mother's bucket list which she carries with her, and that means going back home for a little while. Vera hoped to dash in and out and avoid everyone from her past as much as possible but we all know that small towns never work like that. Within hours Vera has annoyed one half of the community by merely existing while the other half have welcomed her home with open arms, including her Grandmother whom Vera believed was dead (I know! You will just have to read it for yourself). And then there is Jack, the one man who truly held her heart and made her blood hum. But could there be anything between them when she is destined to leave him behind again?
Hilarious, heartwarming, and heartbreaking at times, FIRE TRUCKS, GARTER BELTS, & MY PERFECT EX by Heather Novak takes a generally taboo occupation and turns it on its head which works very well and there is never a dull moment in this story from start to finish. The characters are all well-developed and I enjoyed them all but I definitely have such a soft spot for Grandma Bea and her crew! Vera is strong, sassy, and really likeable and I admired her so much as the story developed and I got to know her more and more.
Now be warned that this book is STEAMY with capital letters and is not for the faint-hearted and is sure to get you hot under the collar when you turn the page. But it is also warm and sweet in so many ways too which makes the sizzle all the better.
With plenty of drama, misunderstandings, funny escapades, and moments of true friendship, FIRE TRUCKS, GARTER BELTS, & MY PERFECT EX by Heather Novak is sure to tick all of the boxes for romance fans who like it hot and I look forward to reading more from this talented author.
