The Firefighter's Perfect Plan by Sonya Weiss - Book Review & Giveaway

Amazon USA Amazon UK Goodreads

Review by Suze

Josie has done something terrible, she's told her mother she's dating a firefighter. Josie's had a crush on Lincoln for a long time and the lie slipped out by accident. Josie and Lincoln have never dated and it isn't very likely they will, given the distant way he's treating her lately. When her parents are back in town and start talking about their daughter's relationship, Josie has to do something to save her reputation and Lincoln is the only one who can help her. Will their warm friendship of the past be enough for him to defrost enough to make her lie believable?

Lincoln doesn't want to fall in love, because a broken heart hurts. He wants to protect himself and isn't looking for a relationship, he doesn't ever want one. However, when he's around Josie his heart keeps sending him different messages. He's thinking about refusing to do her a favor initially, but when he needs something from her in return he reluctantly agrees to fake date her. Whenever they're trying to break up, something or someone prevents it from happening and their fake relationship is going on a lot longer than expected and starts to feel more real every day. Will Lincoln's plans to protect himself against heartbreak meet with disaster and what would happen if he does open his heart instead?

The Firefighter's Perfect Plan is a sweet romantic story. Lincoln is scared to give himself to someone on an emotional level. Josie is wonderful, but he's afraid to risk it. By pretending to be her boyfriend he keeps feeling closer to her and she slowly breaks down part of his walls. Josie is disarming and cheerful and she's easy to like. Lincoln and Josie know each other well and she isn't afraid to speak her mind. I loved that honesty and their dialogue was one of the most fun parts of the story for me. It's clear they belong with each other and finding out if they'd find their happily ever after kept me glued to the pages.

Sonya Weiss has a great easy flowing writing style. I was immediately fascinated by her story because of her vivid descriptions of her main characters. I love how she thoroughly explores their good sides and their flaws, which makes them real and interesting. The Firefighter's Perfect Plan is a story about a complex relationship and it has plenty of fascinating layers, which is something I really liked. It's a story filled with chemistry, true love, friendship, meddling and happiness. I highly recommend this amazing feelgood story.


If you love sweet small town romance you should definitely read The Firefighter's Perfect Plan. It's the second book in the Fire and Sparks series, but can easily be read as a standalone.
