In the small town of Indigo Falls, two broken souls find salvation in each other’s arms in the most unexpected way.
Ocean Gallagher, a reclusive and ruggedly handsome E.M.T, has everything a man could want: wealth, good looks, and a tranquil existence. Yet, he hides a dark secret that tortures him daily—the memory of failing to save the one person who meant everything to him.
Amaya Sinclair, a vivacious and carefree spirit, is the co-owner of a whimsical gift shop and is determined to leave behind her past as a provocative cam girl.
But when Ocean and Amaya collide, an electric chemistry ignites, drawing them together with an intensity they can’t deny.
Together, Ocean and Amaya must summon the courage to confront their deepest fears and insecurities, daring to embrace love’s intoxicating allure. But will the scars that trample their souls keep them imprisoned in a world devoid of true happiness?
Growing up and living in Sweetwater Valley is both a blessing and curse. Everyone is in your business, but there’s a community here that I’ve been part of my entire life. I have a few good friends and I know what to expect. The kids I teach keep me on my toes and that’s enough for me.
Knowing everyone around isn’t great for my love life, but I really can’t complain. I’m content with what I have until a small kitchen fire has the new firefighter in town coming to my rescue. While Wesley puts out the fire, he’s stoking flames in me I didn’t know existed.
Wesley is determined to make sure I know how he feels and never doubt him or his intentions. He’s not just my savior or hero, he’s the perfect man for me.
Being the new guy in town is always a little daunting, but moving to a small town where everyone seems to already know each other makes it even worse. I’m lucky that there’s a brotherhood I’m accepted into the moment I slip on my gear at the firehouse. It makes me think that Sweetwater Valley is exactly the place I’ve been looking for.
When I respond to a call with my crew and meet Hailey, I know I’m right where I’m supposed to be. She’s the woman I’ve been looking for. It’s no surprise I couldn’t find her in the city.
Hailey is all sweet smiles and cozy moments and I’m going to show her that fate brought us together. She calls me a hero, her savior, but she’s the one who saved me by giving me a home.
I’m running out of money and time, and the mob are knocking on my door.
When my dad died, he didn’t leave me an inheritance. Instead, I inherited his debts to dangerous people, and I’ve been paying them for years. Their patience for my slow payments is growing thin, and when I lose my job I’m scared of what they’ll ask for now I’m out of money.
Except the man who turns up to collect isn’t what I expect.
He’s kind, sweet, and doesn’t seem like he should belong to the mob at all.
Is there more to Jesse than meets the eye? Can I trust him to save me, or will he disappoint me like everyone else?
Cinnamon Roll Hero (sin-a-mon roll he-ro): ( n ) a hero who is too sweet for this world…but will fight to the death for the people they care about
Nick: My job has always had its challenges. When you come into a failing business and tell the owner all the changes they should make, tensions always run high. But Faith may take the cake on the most difficult—which is fitting since I’m helping her struggling bakery. She’s hard-headed, stubborn, and a sharp pain in my side. Despite how obnoxious she may be, she somehow has taken up permanent residence in my mind. I find myself doing things I normally wouldn’t just to try get on her good side. I wonder what it would be like to kiss her hard enough to make her drop the attitude—or if that’s even possible.
Faith: Nick Winters is infuriating. I don’t care how good looking he is; I won’t have a stranger come in and try to change the bakery where my grandma built her legacy. Between running a business and taking care of my five-year-old daughter, I don’t have time for all of this. But since my investors deemed it necessary for this man’s help, I guess I have to play ball. Unfortunately, I really, really hate sports.
