It’s been a year since the floods had decimated Cedar Rapids, an urban city in Eastern Iowa. For Noah Martin, a firefighter and rescue worker during the floods, nothing has been the same. After losing his heart to a petite woman he’d tried to rescue, he’d been devastated when the flood waters had took her from him. He’s haunted by her memory and what could’ve been if he’d only been a little stronger, held onto her a little longer.
Unbeknownst to Noah, Alessandra “George” Georgiadis had survived the floods but the memory of her promise to him, has haunted her. She’d promised him their time together would only be a moment out of time. Even though, she longed to see the sexy firefighter once more, she’d told herself it was best this way. After all they hadn’t even exchanged more than their first names; how deep could their bond possible go?
But what will happen to her best intentions when Noah and she cross paths in the most unexpected of places? Will the love and desire they found for only a brief moment rekindle, or will Alessandra hide behind her disability?
With her stomach full, George rolled herself back into the warehouse where Georgiadis Fireworks and Demolition was located. Since she had been a small child, GFD had been her home away from home. She felt at ease working in her family’s business. They never took a second glance at the fact she was disabled. Instead, they only saw the quality of her work and had come to rely on her skills for their more difficult customers. That by itself was more than enough for her. Her work had replaced her desire for a family of her own and a husband.
It might’ve been different if you’d only gotten that hunky firefighter’s last name, Alessandra. You wanted him until you begged for him.
Oh shut up, she told her inner voice. It’s neither here nor there. I’ve got my job and it’s enough.
As she rounded the corner, the first thing she saw was her cousin Genio giving two men hell. Even though she loved him, he was a fanatic about having quiet while he worked and was one of the reasons he normally worked later in the day, to avoid all the hustle in the warehouse.
Knowing she was again going to have to rescue some unfortunate from her cousin’s hot Greek temper, she rolled closer. She came to a stop as the taller of the two men turned and she caught a glimpse of his rugged profile and shoulder length sandy brown hair pulled back at the nape of his neck. Noah..! Her body trembled while she was taken back nearly a year ago and their last encounter.
