About Burn So Good:

Ella Life isn’t fair. I know that lesson well. I said goodbye to Caleb ten years ago. The boy I once loved is man now—a rugged, s*xy as h*ll man. As a hotshot firefighter, he’s all about saving others. Life ripped us apart, stealing more than I could’ve imagined. Time didn’t heal all of my wounds, and time never let me forget what we once had. Once again, he comes to my rescue. This time, I’m running from a different set of demons. Maybe this time we have a second chance.   Caleb Fire burns hot and bright. It can destroy everything. Just like it destroyed what I had with Ella. What comes out of the ashes is stronger than ever. Ella meant everything to me once upon a time. We were young and foolish when tragedy tore us apart. She went running, and I was too torn up to chase after her and make it right. They say time heals all wounds. Some things never die, and the fire between us burns hotter than ever. I’ll do anything to keep her safe, to make her mine.

EXCERPT
Ella

We stood there in the fading light of dusk. A cool breeze gusted across the parking lot, fluttering the leaves on the trees along the lake’s shores. A few leaves blew loose, little flecks of yellow in the gloaming.
Time felt as if it was collapsing into itself. I felt as if my past was barreling towards me and flying behind me at the same time. Because, you see, everything with Caleb felt so familiar. Being home felt so familiar. The distinct screech of an eagle cut through the quiet, rising above the distant hum of voices filtering out from Wildlands.
The sound snapped the moment. My belly fluttered and liquid heat slid through my veins. I looked over at Caleb. With his familiar dark brown gaze on me, it felt as if he could see right through me. Without a word, he turned and I followed along at his side, our footsteps crunching on the gravel.
We stopped beside a black truck. As soon as I saw it, I recognized it more clearly from the day I’d seen it. Sometimes I wondered if I felt so safe with him because, by chance or fate or coincidence, he happened to have rescued me twice in my life. Yet, I sensed there was more to it than that. Trust didn’t come easily to me, not anymore.

Caleb
I told myself I wasn’t going to kiss Ella. I told myself there was something else going on with her, and I needed to know. I told myself we needed to untangle the messy emotions left over from the accident. I told myself a lot of things.
Yet, my body trumped my mind. With Ella’s body flush against mine as she rose up on her tiptoes and slid her hand into my hair, my brain simply stopped functioning. The moment her lips met mine, that was it. I couldn’t resist the sweet heat of her lips, the glide of her tongue against mine.
I didn’t know what first love was like for everyone, but I knew what it was like for me. Innocence didn’t quite capture it. When it came to Ella and me, there had been an elemental rawness to it, a purity. Everything was light and heavy at once. There were so many firsts that could never be repeated. So much meaning was carved into how I felt about her. There was that and then how things blew apart. Reality had crashed into us, leaving us behind in emotional disarray.

  1. If your man is pushing you away and acting distant

    Or if the guy you’re after isn’t giving you the time of day...

    Then it’s time to pull out all the stops.

    Because 99% of the time, there is only 1 thing you can say to a standoffish guy that will grab him by the heartstrings-

    And get his blood pumping at just the thought of you.

    Insert subject line here and link it to: <=========> Your ex won’t be able to resist?

    Once you say this to him, or even send this simple phrase in a text message...

    It will flip his world upside down and you will suddenly find him chasing you-

    And even begging to be with you.

    Here’s what I’m talking about: <=========> Is your man hiding something? He may need your help?

    Thanks again.
