Publisher's Summary

As a member of the New York Fire Department, single father Tim Davis is about as tough as they come. But underneath the muscles and tattoos, he still nurses a bruised heart handed to him courtesy of his first love. While on vacation with his son in New Orleans, Tim runs into the very woman that taught him about love before pulling it all away.

Holly Reynolds is rebuilding her life as an orthopedic doctor, far away from her home in New York City and her controlling father, the man responsible for tearing her and Tim apart. While she knows the hurt she caused Tim could never be forgiven, she can't help the overwhelming feelings she still has for her first and deepest love.

Truths are revealed as lies are exposed.

Two people come back together again to explore the fragile emotional bonds that still keep them tethered, even as their passion ignites hotter than any fire Tim has ever had to put out before.

First Love Rekindled

Sawyer Bennett just dropped another tasty little morsel on us -- Off Duty was off the charts hot and sexy, with a cute little kid to boot. Tim and Holly find out that sometimes you can go back. These two pick up the passion and the romance like they were never apart. This novella was pleasant listen showing how true love and heal old wounds.

Another good job by Charlotte North and Matthew Holland as narrators. They this a quick and easy listen.

Since this is a short novella, I would pay the reduced price and not use a credit. The reduced price would be money well spent.

A second chance for romance

This novella had a lot of heart. Who doesn't think back to their first love and wonder, " What If?" This entire series was so enjoyable. The writing was just great and I loved the narrators. I definitely recommend this whole series

Loved it

I loved this book couldn't put it down. Tim Davis and his son Sam went on vacation to New Orleans to visit Denise, Tim's sister. When Sam had an accident, Tim took him to the hospital where he sees his ex-girlfriend who had broken his heart when they were in high school.

Not for me

Did not get past first chapter. There were too many undertones of racism for my taste. According to some of the other reviews it only gets worse. I did adore the rest of the series just not his book

Not my fave.

This one may have been my least favorite out of the whole series. Something about this relationship came off “fetishy” and it was weird. I agree with a lot of the other reviewers, for this to be the only book of the series to feature a people of color, it was poorly executed in both the writing and performance.

Poor Narrator Choice

I’m upset that Tim (a black character) is being narrated by a white man. This was such a poor choice in narrators. This was a chance for higher inclusiveness and is was missed

Ummm, No! Just No!

Basically, I’m sorry for the shitty-racist way I treated you so all’s forgiven? Let’s have dinner some time. H is like sure, forgiven. What? Hell to the no!

After everything that happened, even though it was 10 years ago, I don’t believe Tim would just forgive and forget.

Enjoyable, quick and sexy

A second chance novella following Firefighter and single dad Tim Davis as fate brings him face to face with his childhood sweetheart orthopaedic doctor Holly Reynolds, when Tim's son Sam fractures his wrist. Tim is visiting his sister in New Orleans where Holly now works in the ER, this means that their reunion is short lived as Tim needs to return to New York. New York, a place that Holly left behind when her hero of a father let her down badly with his bigotry. Maybe now it's time to return home, building bridges with her parents isn't a priority, but things have changed a lot in 10 years for her parents, it would appear however that Holly and Tim's feeling for each other are stronger than ever. A quick, sexy read that I thoroughly enjoyed.
