Official Blurb:

Betsy Madison just got broken up with and is looking to make a fresh declaration of her own independence. Studly firefighter Jamie Banner is looking for a change of pace in Milltown. When they meet, fireworks are guaranteed.
The Fourth of July is my absolutely least favorite thing. An entire day dedicated to thundering explosions and crazy-making lights that drive my clients wild (well, wilder than they already are, given that they’re cats and dogs)? Thanks, but no.
The only thing I like less than the Fourth is my ex, and good riddance to him. I gave him seven years of my life, and in the end he gave me an eyeful of his cheating ass in my bed with some brunette. Said he wasn’t ready for long term, that he needed something explosive. I hope the fact that I had a moving van and team at the house within the hour, moving his shit the hell out of there, was explosive enough for him.
So sure, while I’m not exactly thrilled about this year’s fireworks show — the one that puts my town of Milltown, Colorado, on the map — I’m ready for something new. Something fresh. Something . . . well, something explosive. In a good way.
This year, I’m celebrating the Fourth by making a fresh declaration of independence to bring me back to life after seven years of gathering dust on the arm of a guy who didn’t deserve me — or, hell, even want me.
It’s time to focus on me.
When firefighter Jamie Banner walks into my life, I know exactly what I’d like to do with him. And it’s not exactly ladylike . . .

My Thoughts:

This was a very fast-paced lust story. There wasn’t an awful lot to the 49 pages as it was mainly physical attraction and sex scenes.
We do get to know a little about Betsy and Jamie. What they do, why they are in Milltown and Betsy’s recent heartache but that is about it. We don’t get to know what makes them tick or really what the attraction between the two is other than physical. It’s hard to get invested in characters when we aren’t given anything to work on. I know these books are only short but some author’s manage to build a whole story in such a short space. I felt like this addition was literally just written for Betsy and Jamie to get in bed and have sex!
The epilogue left me a little whiplashed with how fast everything happened. I’m sorry, but I just didn’t feel much for this story, and it wasn’t one of my favourites.
