Bestselling author Diane Kelly brings the heat to her popular Paw Enforcement series when sparks fly between a teacher and a firefighter in Love Unleashed.
Between wrangling her rambunctious kindergarten class and trying to catch an elusive Dalmatian pup who’s been hanging around the playground, teacher Jessica Bellingham can hardly seem to catch her breath. And when hot, hunky fireman Louie DeLuca arrives to teach the children about fire safety, she just might need mouth-to-mouth resuscitation. Who’d have thought a yellow slicker could be so sexy?
Things heat up quickly, igniting a passion the two would gladly allow to consume them. But will their romance become a four-alarm blaze, or will a dark secret from Jesse’s past threaten to cool things off for good? And what will become of the playful puppy who seems to stay just out of reach?
Love Unleashed is a short, cutesy romance between a firefighter and a teacher. While I found the story a bit cheesy overall, it is sweet and enjoyable.
The plot is predictable for sure, but this isn’t a romantic suspense book, so predictability isn’t really a problem. Jessica, an adorable kindergarten teacher, swoons hard for the hottie fireman, Louie. Louie falls hard for Jessica too and switches shifts so he can put on a fire safety demo at the school where Jessica teaches. Romance ensues. Both of them have a sad past and not sharing that past is what creates the tension of the story. Overall, not my favorite trope because it always seems immature. Throw in the Dalmatian puppy wandering around the playground, and you have the trifecta of cute animal, hot guy, and sweet girl!
An adorable dog, a sweet, caring kindergarten teacher, and a smoking hot firefighter combine to give you a sweet, fast contemporary romance in Love Unleashed!
