Nice Enough by Barbra Campbell



I’d been running county-wide disaster preparedness meetings for over a decade and fighting fires far longer than that. The routine of talking everyone through disaster protocol had become stale, until Annie walked in. At least 20 years younger than me, she was vibrant, smart, and a thorn in my side. Unfortunately, she was also my newest obsession.


Fresh out of college, I landed my first real job. Ready to share my knowledge on helping criminal youths find a new path, I took a position as a counselor in a cute little town that was doing its best to catch up with current trends in criminal justice reform.

My first case: a juvenile arsonist.

My first complication: the burly fire chief everyone considered an expert because he’d been their only expert for far too long.

Campbell does a great job of weaving current conversations and interactions with references to previous events that gives the listener a satisfying story line without feeling rushed or lacking. It's a difficult balance in short stories and she does it well. Miles & Annie have great chemistry; personally, emotionally, and sexually. On fire! (sorry, couldn't help myself) There's only one sex scene, but it is definitely smoking. The steam level building up to and after definitely satisfies those looking for a sexy romance.
