She'll give everything to protect her family.

He always knew she was the one. 

Veterinary tech Pepper Miller lives a quiet life in Last Chance County. She's watching her niece until her sister shows up…if she ever does. When Victory's father demands he take over her care, Pepper knows something has gone wrong. With a new drug in town, and her sister embroiled in a dangerous bargain, it's up to Pepper to protect the people she loves. 

Even if it costs every secret she's ever kept. 

Fire Department liaison Allen Frees lives with the injuries he sustained as a police officer in a raid gone wrong. He's put his life back together but getting the truck crew and engine squad to succeed might be his toughest assignment yet. When Victory is nearly kidnapped at a community event, Allen steps in to help Pepper keep her niece safe. The one thing he couldn't fix was the love he lost, but he isn't going to let Pepper walk away this time. 

No matter what walls he has to break down. 

Last Chance County returns in this blazing new series from Sunrise Publishing.

My thoughts: I enjoyed this story and the wide array of characters! Lisa Phillips does a wonderful job of bringing them to life, with their different strengths and weaknesses. I felt for Pepper, with trying to do the best for her sister and niece, while also trying to survive the harsh criticism of the town. I felt like Allen should have been more forthcoming with the events surrounding their breakup, though I can see how that might not have been on his mind at the time.
This is a wonderful, high suspense read that is hard to put down! It's well written and very driven. I look forward to reading the other books in the series!
I received this book from Just Read. This is my honest review.
