NEW RELEASE – Life Changer (Chicago First Responders #2) by BJ Harvey

Title: Life Changer
Series: Chicago First Responders #2
Author: BJ Harvey
Genre: Single Dad Rom/Com, Firefighter Romance
Release Date: February 25, 2021
When a firefighter and the chef he’s been crushing on cross paths, sparks fly.
***
Divorced single mom Dee has never much believed in fate until now, but something about the charming and adorably awkward flirt, Rhodes, has her intrigued and wanting to know more.
Widowed dad Rhodes has no idea who he’s about to meet on the blind date his son set up but can’t stop thinking about the food vlogger he’s been crushing on like a hormonal teenager.
Add in nice-guy ex husbands, meddling co-workers, and food made to make even the strongest man melt, Dee and Rhodes soon discover that while their loved ones may have brought them together, somewhere along the way, fate turned into the real hero of their story.
Can these two singletons trust the hard and fast connection they’ve found, or will the pressure to live up to expectations stop them from being the life changers they both want and need.
***
USA Today Bestselling Author BJ Harvey brings you Life Changer- Book 2 in a new spin-off to the Cook Brothers rom com series, featuring Chicago first responders fighting the good fight and finding love at the same time. Set in the same world as the Bliss, Game, and Cook Brothers series before it, this title can be read as a complete standalone.


I’m about to knock when the door swings open and a man looking strikingly similar to Harvey appears.

“Hey, you must be Rhodes. I’m Flynn,” he says, holding out his hand.

I shake it and smile, relieved he’s not making this weirder than it has to be. It makes sense he’d be here since Dee said he had a standing date with Harvey on Sundays. “Yep. That’s me.”

Silence stretches between us. We both stand there, looking at each other.

“Oh, shit, sorry. Do you wanna come in? Dee’s in the bedroom finishing getting ready.”

I laugh and rub the back of my neck, stepping inside behind my date’s ex-husband. “It’s okay. We both know this is kind of awkward, right?”

Flynn snorts. “Honestly, yeah, it’s the first time I’ve had to deal with meeting the guy dating Dee, but that’s to be expected when we share a house, right?”

I open my mouth to reply but freeze at his revelation. Thank f*ck I cover quickly. “Right. I guess that makes sense with Harvey and all.”

Flynn’s gaze narrows slightly before widening. “Oh fuck. You didn’t know, did you?” He scrubs his mouth. “Damn. I dumped her in it. Look, sorry, but it is just a living arrangement. It works for us, it works for Harvey, and I’ve got a girlfriend that I’m kinda crazy about. So please don’t feel threatened or go all alpha dog on me,” he says, his lips twitching.

How can I hate this guy now? “Thanks for explaining it. I’m surprised, but I’m sure Dee meant to tell me.”

“To be fair, Harvs and I should’ve left by now. You’ve kinda been blindsided, but it was completely unintentional.”

“You know, you’re making it hard for me not to like you?” I say, making him laugh.

“Good. Because you’re the first guy Dee has gone out on a date with in two years, so I’m glad you’re not a dick either.”

Footsteps grab my attention, and when I look up I meet Dee’s slow-growing smile as she walks down the staircase toward us, her eyes going from soft and warm to wide and worried when her gaze shifts to a grinning Flynn leaning against the wall. “Oh f*ck.”

“That’s what I said,’ Flynn says.



BLP REVIEW – TRACY

I have to say that LIFE CHANGER is so far one of my favourite books of 2021…

Although this is only the second book by BJ Harvey that I’ve read I am so taken with her storytelling and her character building that I’ll be a definite fan going forward.

I adored this story. Great main characters, a little older with families and some baggage but perfect for each other..

Rhodes was a great leading man. His loyalty, commitment, humour and patience as well as his ability to think on his feet rounded out his character well.

Dee was fab. Her home life was a little different to say the least but it worked for those involved and that was the main thing. She had a likability and realism that I liked. I loved her understanding when it comes to Rhode’s wife Lily and how, even though she was gone, she was still a part of their lives.

The kids Harvey and Jake and Dee’s ex/best friend along with Rhodes friends, family and his work family were all great supporting characters.

I’m going back to read Marco’s book and I am excited for more in the Chicago First Responders series!!
