Emma Jordan has returned home after her father’s death to run the animal sanctuary that had been his legacy. But strange things start happening, and it seems that someone is out to shut her down, someone who doesn’t mind putting lives in jeopardy to see it through. When Hidden Falls’ sexiest fireman starts to ask questions, Emma needs to make sure his charm doesn’t distract her from keeping her dreams alive.
Ben McQuaid has an obligation as a local fireman to protect the community, even from a well-meaning wildlife veterinarian who’s in way over her head. But, it’s becoming hard to keep his loyalty to the town and his desire for the pretty vet separate. As Ben and Emma become caught in a dangerous game of cat and mouse, their feelings for each other are growing.
Will they let duty drive them apart or will they dare to fall?
Daring to Fall is my first read from T.J Kline and I can honestly say that it will not be my last. Her writing was captivating and romantic, and these characters are not ones I'll be forgetting about any time soon. Their story wasn't overly involved in just their relationship but that's what I found so amazing. Ben and Emma had a lot more going on then just what was between them, which kept this book engaging so it didn't bother me at all that their relationship didn't seem to be the main focus.
The author also throws a little suspense into the mix and has you guessing what's going to happen by the end. I really liked that the mystery was more of a backstory that kept me involved in the story, but didn't get in the way of everything else going on.
A lot of the focus was on Emma trying to keep her fathers animal sanctuary afloat and it was great to see the strength she had in order to do that. But don't worry, there is still a lot of Emma and Ben involved in the book so all romance lovers will be very happy with that. Bottom line, this is definitely a recommend from me.
