Valerie Peters is done with bad boys and ready to start living for herself. She's determined to settle for nothing less than a romantic, sweeps-you-off-your-feet, nice-guy. So when a sexy firefighter with the hottest reputation in town saves her from near-drowning, there's no doubt he's everything she shouldn't want.
Donovan's looks and image have kept his nights entertaining and his ring finger empty. One-night stands serve as a short-term distraction to the flashbacks of his past he increasingly struggles to ignore. But a chance encounter with his best friend's sister makes him realize that one night is no longer enough.
Together, they discover that bad can actually be the best and forever is worth everything.
