Sparks Will Fly by Daniel Banner
Blue Reed is the Captain of Engine 2 on the Park City Fire Department, the leader of a crew proudly known as Blue's Bachelors. But when a black-haired beauty crosses his path during a competition adventure race, he wonders if his bachelor days are numbered.
Lucy Avila, recent college grad and former university mascot, isn't looking for love when she travels to Utah with her friends to compete in Questival. She just wants the grand prize of a trip to Cusco, Peru to meet the grandmother she's never seen, before her little Abuelita's time is up. But standing between her and the grand prize is a Spartan-like leader of a team of firemen. Lucy likes the guy, but isn't crazy about her chances against his team.
No sooner do Lucy and Blue hit it off than they realize he was the star quarterback for her university's biggest rival. To make matters worse, their families have long histories and prominent positions with their respective universities.
From a Skylodge on the side of a Peruvian mountain to the skybox of a football stadium, their love blossoms as they put aside rivalries. But one bad decision by Lucy pulls in hundreds of frenzied fans and causes damage to Blue's family that may be irreparable. The only thing that is for sure... Sparks Will Fly.
I love stories about firefighters and always have so when I found this series about Park City Firefighters I had to try it out. It was well written and very unique. Blue and Lucy meet in a competition where they were both trying to win a trip to Peru. After a steamy kiss was shared in the competition...Blue's team won but because of certain circumstances Lucy was able to join in on the winning trip. You are so happy for her because she gets to visit her family but more excited to see this relationship develop. This book was unique in the way that a BIG part of the book is about college rivalry... some people take college rivalries very serious! :) Torn apart by a daring and crazy situation Blue and Lucy learn to follow their hearts and to trust each other. This was a fun book and I look forward to reading more in this series.
