In Pushing The Line by Kimberly Kincaid, Harper McGee has been living her adult life as a free spirit, going wherever the wind takes her. But the death of her dear grandmother brings her back to Brentsville, New York. After she learns that she has inherited her grandmother’s candy shop, Luscious, Harper knows that she cannot keep it. She would not be able to keep it going and it would probably bring it to ruin, and she cannot dot that to her grandmother’s beloved candy shop. So she decides to sell it as soon as possible.
Only the next day as Harper is walking into the shop before it’s time to open, she finds that there is a fire in the kitchen. She tries to put it out herself, but nothing seems able to do it, not the water or the fire extinguisher. The next step is to call the fire department for help. But when they arrive they want her to evacuate immediately, and she realizes that her grandmother’s candy molds are too close to the fire and begins to struggle against the firefighter. So in a moment of distraction she evades him and runs to collect the molds. Even if she won’t keep the shop, she cannot let her grandmother’s special and hand-down molds be destroyed.
Aaron Fisher knows what it’s like to have your family keep expectations that you cannot fulfill, but he also knows that you have to fight to be true to yourself. That’s why regardless of what his family wanted he became a firefighter. But that doesn’t mean that he is not loyal to his friends or family. So when his friend and fellow firefighter is hurt on call and cannot complete a side job for his constructing company, Aaron is only too happy to jump in and help.
What Aaron didn’t expect was that the job was to repair Luscious and the stubborn woman who would not listen to reason and evaded him in order to save some molds is contracting it. But that doesn’t mean that he is not happy to see her again. She intrigues him and he wants to get to know her. The only downside is that she is pushing for the repairs in order to sell the shop and leave town.
Aaron and Harper have a lot of chemistry and attraction going on there, but neither wants to take it to the next level when they both know that she will soon be leaving town. But the chemistry can only be denied for so long, and the candy they are making in his kitchen is not the only thing that is going to get hot. Only Aaron will have to show Harper that love can be forever and that they can make things work if she will only give them a chance.
