Synopsis:

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.

His to Seduce by Stacey Lynn is the fourth book in the Fireside series and the first book in this series that I read.  I will admit from the start that coming in at the end of the series, I have some insight into the lives of the other characters from the previous books.  I love series about friends and/or family, so we start hitting my “love to read” buttons.  While I know where the characters are at the end of the series, I don’t believe it ruins this story and it doesn’t dampen my desire to read their journey.  In fact, I will be reading the other books to know how the story complete story.

His to Seduce is the story of Camden Reed and David McGregor.  Anyone who reads the series from the beginning probably knows a little more about how this couple arrives at the start of His to Seduce than I do but I caught up quickly.  They are good romance characters for me.  They both have damaged pasts and hurdles to overcome to trust in a new relationship. 


Camden Reed is a woman who is super organized.  She plans, lists, and plans some more before moving forward.  She needs the structure to protect herself against the unexpected.  The thing is regardless of how much you plan for the unexpected surprises will happen. 

David McGregor is a man who changes his career direction after a family tragedy.  He feels like a failure and runs from his position as an emergency room doctor because he can’t handle losing anyone else.  He struggles because of his inability to save all his patients.    

I am very impressed with Stacey Lynn’s writing and storytelling skills.  The story is written in a way that the pace is decent and steady and continually spurs the reader to want more.  The two main characters are developed cleverly while the chemistry between these two jumps off the pages. 

David and Camden have the qualities that I like in my romance novels.  It is captivating learning what makes these two characters tick.  David is a good man with a lot of patience.  Camden is a lovely woman with a little stubborn streak.  She has the determination to succeed and fights the odds.  I admit that Camden does come close to pushing some of my buttons and very close to making me want to give her a little “snap out of it” slap a few times.

My criticisms are tiny and ones that I often have in these push/pull stories.  The push goes on a little too long.  For me, it would work better if Camden is slightly more forthcoming even if she doesn’t tell all her secrets immediately.  There are times that she doesn’t feel honest for me if she could give a crumb or two I could get on her side completely.  Also, and this is just my personal preference, I would like a little more for the ending.  It feels like everything wraps up too quickly and, therefore, a little epilogue would work here, especially since it is the wrap-up to a series.  

His to Seduce is a splendid read.  It is my first Stacey Lynn book, and it won’t be my last.  I am adding the other books in the series to my “read next” list and putting Stacey on my “watch what she writes next” list.  I thoroughly enjoy her writing and look forward to more.
