His to Seduce by Stacey Lynn
Publication Date: March 21, 2017
Genre: Contemporary Romance
An honorable man who’s lost his way . . . A career woman who hides behind her button-up suits . . . Unexpected romance is the specialty at the Fireside Grill as Stacey Lynn’s captivating series comes full circle.
Becoming an ER doctor had been David McGregor’s mission ever since he could remember. But after tragedy strikes at his hospital in Chicago, David runs away from the guilt—all the way back to Latham Hills, Michigan, where he takes a job tending bar at his childhood friend’s restaurant. That’s how he meets Camden Reed, and the way Camden refuses to give him the time of day should be a turnoff. Instead, he’s drawn to her tough, tightly wound exterior, and soon David realizes that he has a new mission: to see her tightly wound beneath him.
Camden’s fighting tooth and nail to resist the desire she feels for David. Growing up dirt-poor, raised by a single mother, she worked twice as hard to get where she is today, and she doesn’t have any patience for the kind of guy who’d give up a decent paycheck to sling drinks. But when the sexual tension finally combusts between the sheets, Camden discovers that people aren’t always what they seem. As David pushes her past her limits, Camden begins to loosen up—and to trust that, when she falls, there will be someone waiting to catch her.

My Review – 4 Stars
I jumped into this series with book 3, His to Cherish, and fell in love with the characters of Fireside. From that point, I knew I needed to read the other couples’ journeys to happily ever after and had to get my hands on David’s story. I absolutely loved him! He was a genuinely sweet and caring man, a passionate and attentive lover, and perfectly patient with Camden. While he was battling his own demons and uncertainty surrounding his future, David spent nearly every moment trying to pull Camden out of her structured way of existing. He was the perfect guy to help her overcome her own demons and embrace the freedom and love she could have with him.
I loved David and Camden’s passionate affair in Jamaica. It was so damn hot and fun. It was wonderful seeing Camden let loose and push back her fears if only for a few days, which was just enough for those cracks in her shield to start forming. David was prepared to take full advantage of those spaces to ease into her life, and man did he ever! I loved watching her fall, and the ending was fabulous!
Stacey knows how to bring the heat and passion as well as the emotional elements to her stories. This book wasn’t as emotionally taxing as her others, but I think that was because their pain wasn’t as much in-your-face as the previous books. I also think it was a little because I didn’t completely connect with Camden. I understood her history and subsequent need for her lists and obsessive behavior to battle back her fears and need for control. However, I felt like her reasoning to hide what happened to her was a bit contrived. I also didn’t like the double standard she created when forcing David to reveal everything to her without doing the same.
In the end, I liked Camden. She just needed to let the past go. I’m glad she had Chelsea to talk some sense into her. I also think she could have used a new therapist. I would have liked to see more from this couple after all was revealed, and I’m going to miss the other couples and what lies in their future. Even though I know this is the end of the Fireside series, I’m hoping that Stacey Lynn might give us glimpses of these characters in some way. Maybe a holiday novella or newsletter short?
