Derek aka Phoenix is a New York City fire fighter and has dedicated his life to saving people. When he loses two of his men in the line of duty, he doesn’t know if he’ll be able to see the light again.
However, when an angel in the form of a woman named Fia appears before him, his world as he knows it is turned upside down.
Fia has been working hard to make money so she can finish her last semester of school. A fire in her building sets her back to square one, but the fireman who saves her turns out to be more than she ever expected.
Once he gets his arms around her, there’s no letting go. Because when you’ve got your forever in your arms, nothing else matters.
Warning: This is hot and fast insta-love that ignites the pages. It’s burning heat that combusts into an inferno of lava. Okay, that’s all the fire words I could come up with. Now insert a pun about a big hose. It’s quick, dirty, and ridiculously over the top.
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
Loved this! 5 Stars!!!!!
“Holding His Forever,” by Alexa Riley is a standalone novella of around eighty-four pages. This is the insta-love story of Derek and Fia…
The day this was released, I downloaded it, so eager I was to read it. I have recently become an Alexa Riley fan. I admit to only having read seven of her novellas but that just means I have a lot more to enjoy! Yay!!
So this story is about sexy firefighter Derek Phoenix and the woman he falls instantly in love with, Fia. Derek has been going through some emotional trauma after having lost a couple of good friends in the line of duty. He’s been only “surviving” each day until he lays his eyes on an “angel.” Fia.
Fia is a waitress currently trying to earn enough money to finish school. After a fire in her apartment, she is set back and worried. She has to start over saving for school. I liked Fia and my heart was heavy for her; she has led a tough life with no real place to call “home.” Until… she finds herself in the arms of her savior…Derek.
I admit I’m a sucker for these short, sexy, inta-love stories. In addition, this one has some lite suspense. Alexa writes our desires and fantasies and that’s why we love them. Derek and Fia together was heart-warming, sweet, and oh so sexy in that “Alexa Riley,” way.
Oh…Let me add how much I love the book cover! It was perfect!
