Flash Point by Lani Lynn Vale
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
Booth and Masen were made for each other. That's the only way to explain the chemistry, the draw and the love between these two.
She fell in love with him when she was just shy of 17 years old, once he enlisted things stayed the same until one fateful day when everything came crashing down on Masen at once and she did the unthinkable.
She broke up with Booth over the phone and not in a calm manner. Unbeknownst to her, she ripped Booth's heart out right before a mission.
I wanted to hate Masen at this point, I truly did, but her state of mind at the time of Booth's call made it easier to swallow.
Thinking their relationship can be fixed she waits for his arrival at the airport only to come face to face with his brother who was always good her her now looks at her with disgust and tells her he volunteered to stay,
"You broke him, baby girl," he said. "Now you get to watch while he tries every trick in the book not to leave the place alive."
Talk about breaking your heart? That right there did it for me.
Ten years later Booth is home and about to start working with both the SWAT and Kilgore Fire Department when he comes face to face with Masen.
Regardless of the years and pain between them she rushes into his arms and it seems like nothing ever changed.
Until a voice behind her saying hey hubby sends her running away.
Booth isn't ready to deal with Masen so he doesn't tell her the truth about his "wife" instead letting her think the worst.
They both fight to move on and to avoid each other but there's a pull that cannot be denied. No one will ever fill that space in the others heart, without their other half they can never truly be happy.
Now it's up to Booth and Masen to see if they can overcome the past and move forward together or go their separate ways.
I loved Booth's story, I really don't think there's anything Lani Lynn Vale could write that I wouldn't adore. The characters have a way of digging themselves into your heart quickly and a story line that hooks you in the first chapters and refuses to let you walk away until the very end.
