He’d walk through fire for the doctor who once broke his heart

Six months after having his heart broken, Australian firefighter Flynn Boomer is ready to live again. As part of a firefighter exchange program, he finds himself in New York. The last person he expects to see on his first day with Ladder Co. 42 is the man whom Flynn came out for: Dr. David Ennis—who left him without a word after their first public kiss.

Flynn makes David feel more alive, more real than he’s ever felt before. But can David deal with the rest of the world knowing? Determined to deny Flynn’s existence, David fights his own feelings. But no matter how terrified he is at the thought of his secret being discovered, he can’t stay away from the Australian.

Flynn can no more deny David than he can deny breath, but the thought of living a lie with him tears him apart. Love is powerful, but will it be enough?

My View:

Can’t Stay Away is the reconnection story between an Aussie firefighter and an American doctor. While entertaining and hot in places, there was a little too much sex compared to character development for the length of the story.

There was definite chemistry between Flynn and David, but because their relationship was established before the beginning of the book, we don’t see what these two see in each other. Their time together outside the bedroom is skipped over so all we know is that they are compatible sexually. I would have liked to see more of them as a couple before the epilogue happened.

However, it was a pleasant way to spend some time if you just want some fluff.
