For long-time Durango Fire Department EMT, Ava ‘Blue’ Navarro, her teammates at Station 3 represent a family more loyal than her own.
However, when patients start dying on her watch, she draws the attention of local law enforcement. In particular the smooth-talking detective she’s successfully evaded for years, fearing he might stir up her quiet existence.
Detective Tony Ramirez considers himself a likable guy, which is why the perpetual cold shoulder from the athletic blonde first responder is confusing.
Now he finds himself in charge of a murder investigation that threatens to shake his world both personally and professionally. A situation that won’t earn him any brownie points.
When medical examiner, Calder Stonewall, is called in to assist, it only seems to throw more suspicion Blue’s way, and Tony has to pull out all the stops to prove her innocence while securing her heart.

“I really hate this,” she says when I lift my head.
“I must be losing my touch, then,” I joke, and she slaps my chest.
“Not that, you idiot. I hate being weak.”
“Now who’s being an idiot?” I lightly shake her. “If you sprained your ankle, would you think it weak to see a doctor? Do you think the people you tend to on a daily basis are weak?” When she reluctantly shakes her head, I push my point home. “So how’s this any different? We’re just talking about another part of you that needs some healing. Shit, if you think that makes you weak, you’re calling every cop in Durango a pussy. Wait ‘til I tell the guys.”
“You wouldn’t,” she snaps, her eyes spitting fire.
“If you keep spouting that nonsense, I might.”
Blue’s job as an EMT is more than a career it is a calling. She is a woman with a big heart and a painful past who is close to the people she works with but has no interest in love or a relationship. She may be attracted to Tony, but she is determined that colleagues is all they will ever be.
Tony is a Detective who had made it clear to Blue that he would like a relationship with her, but she has rebuffed all his attempts. When he is tasked with investigating the suspicious deaths of some of her patients Tony knows that she is innocent but proving it may be the biggest challenge of all.
I really enjoyed watching the relationship between Blue and Tony unfold. The support that he gave her when she needed it the most showed the strength of his feelings for her and allowed her to open up about her past.
