Burning Up (The Prescotts #6) by Tara Wyatt

A Review by Wendy

3.5 Finding Yourself Stars

Spoiler Free-A Quick Review

It is rewarding to read about two people who need to figure out what is important and find themselves in the process. Tara Wyatt decided to create two people who were dealing with self-doubt and guilt, who were letting these factors guide them in how they saw themselves, and then gave them the chance to work through their obstacles together and find love.

Noah Prescot and Felicity Hawthorne have the perfect meeting with him being the rugged fireman rescuing her from an old elevator at the high school where she teaches.
The chemistry is off the wall from the start and both cannot stop thinking about each other long after that first connection.

Then there is another chance meeting between them at a charity auction and the two of them have the opportunity to spend more time together. This continues and soon both are sharing their personal stories of their lives and how neither is dating.

Now each person has their own demons, Felicity feels like she may not be enough for someone to believe in her. She was married to her first and he ended up cheating on her. During these last eighteen months, she has had the time to think about what her relationship was, and how one-sided it was to her ex's benefit. She felt like she lost herself and now is coming around to being who she really is.

Noah is the responsible son. He looks out for everyone and carries a heavy load, the heaviest being his guilt over his father's death. He decided long ago to fill up his time and life by being there for others and his brothers, and mom.

This story touches on the condition of looking inward and figuring out what is important. It also has smoking (see how I did that) hot times, too.

It is part of a connecting series but I never felt lost while reading it.
