Reluctant Rescue by Cami Checketts

From Goodreads

Caylee Compton has determined she'll never commit to a man, especially a too-handsome, fun-sucker like volunteer firefighter, physician, and ex-military Captain Levi Turner. Levi determines to change her mind. In the beautiful and exciting location of Lake Powell, Caylee fights valiantly to stay strong, but Levi's patience, kindness, and kisses might conquer even her commitment phobia.

My Take:

This is my first book in the Park City Firefighter romances. Once again, Cami delivers a fun, quick read that is pleasantly different from so many romances out there. I don't know if it's the locations she visits or what, but I love her writing.

Caylee is a fun loving, in your face kind of girl. However, she has her dark secrets too. The kind that make you ache for her. Levi is a great match for her. He wears his pain on the outside, with his fun side hidden deep. I loved that they needed to bring each other's hidden side out in order for both of them to heal and be ready for the love waiting for them.

I give Reluctant Rescue a 4.5 and a Clean rating.

1-5 scale and what it means:
1: I couldn’t even finish it / just plain bad
2: I hope I didn’t pay for this / disappointing
3: I didn’t hate it, but it was still missing something / forgettable but inoffensive
3.5: On the line between good and ok / like, not love
4: Solid mind candy / worth reading
4.5: So very close to perfection! / must read
5: I could not put it down and I’m still thinking about it! / a true treasure

Movie Ratings in relation to my review:
Clean--Hallmark movies, some kissing, no nudity, no sex on or off "screen"
PG--Some innuendo but nothing kids don't hear every day, sex is all closed door
PG-13--some language (swear words not related to sex), more talk about sex, heavy petting, removal of clothing on screen, but sex is closed door.

 R--swearing (can be related to sex), feels like the whole story is about the sex and not the relationship or some other plot
