It’s no secret that I am one of Laramie’s biggest fans and let me tell you that this new series is going to make me an even bigger fan.

The characters are beautifully written, and in true Laramie fashion you fall in love instantly not just with the main characters but the whole supporting crew as well.

Danny and Hayden are so perfect for each other, and you feel it from the first time you meet them.

If you haven’t read anything by this author before, this is a great start.

Another five star read

This is the first book in a new series and it was absolutely freaking amazing! I loved Hayden she was such a good character, I loved her laid back but take no BS attitude and Danny was such a sweetheart. The story itself was well written and such a beautiful read. I’m excited to see what’s next in the series.

This isn’t your typical firefighter story. Sure, we have danger and camaraderie and the joking expected among the crew, but this is a lot more also. Danny and his family give us a close look at narrow minds and closed hearts, while Hayden and hers give us the worry of a single dad who did his best. And that best may need to let up a little when Hayden and Danny find each other!

I loved the fact that Danny didn’t shy away from Hayden, but he also didn’t forget that he needed the approval of more

Danny is a rookie firefighter who is determined to show the Chief and the people in town that he is worthy of the job. He has often felt like an outsider as others didn’t feel her father was worthy of her mother and that included her family. When he stopped to help a woman change a tire he was drawn to her in a way he had never felt before but finding out later that she was his Chief’s daughter made her off-limits.

After finishing college Hayden has returned to her hometown and is trying to deter

Ooh, a new series of characters to fall in love with. Hayden and Danny light up the pages. The men of Bradford Station are going to be a force and of course all of the strong sassy women that love them. Hayden the Chief's youngest daughter is a spitfire and goes after what she wants. Danny feels he isn't enough because he comes from the other side of the tracks but love doesn't discriminate and Danny and Hayden fell in love on first meeting. Their story ended with a smile on my face and a need f ...more

The beginning of another awesome series by Laramie Briscoe! You will get sucked in right away and won’t want to put it down. If you have never read anything by her, this is a great place to start!

This is the start of a new series taking place in Tennessee and we get to know the firefighters in this small town. The first up is the rookie who is Danny.

Danny comes from a hispanic family that owns and runs a lawn service in town. His mom is related to the mayor but she was disowned when she married the guy from the other side of town, Danny's dad. Danny helped out a few days a week and also works withe fire department full time.

Hayden is back home after college when she meets Danny. Her fat

OMG I'm the happiest person in the whole wide world because I discovered LARAMIE BRISCOE!
ROOKIE was my very first book of this author and definitely won't be my last!
This wonderful book is the love story of Hayden and Danny.
Well Danny is a firefighter (a really hot and irresistible firefighter) at Bradford Station and when a beauty young woman has a problem with her car of course he's there to help... and that's the real problem: the first time Danny sees Hayden? There's an instant attraction!

*3.5-4 Star Rating*

This is my first Laramie Briscoe book, so I wasn't sure what to expect in terms of writing style and character building. Each author has their own way of crafting a story, but I assumed a few things knowing that this was going to be about firefighters. I wanted that brotherly camaraderie where you know there's going to be lots of laughs, but at the end of the day, they would lay down their lives for each other.

I felt like the stars were aligned for this story. It was set in a

What an awesome start to a new series from Laramie Briscoe. This new series takes place in Bradford Station and focuses on the guys of the fire dept in the small forest town. Who doesnt love a hot firefighter romance?!
Hayden is the Fire Chief's "little girl" and comes with the unwritten (but widely known) rule of off-limits to all her dad's firefighters. Well Danny, the Rookie of Bradford Station Number 1 doesnt know who the woman is that he helps on the side of the mountain road one day. Why n

I have previously enjoyed books from Laramie Briscoe and have been eager to dive into Rookie since hearing about it years ago. It’s a story I went into expecting to find another series I would devour, yet Rookie did not work for me.

For me, Rookie was far too quick and underdeveloped. There were many elements in this one that had the potential to be highly addictive, to cover many aspects, yet none were taken as far as I had hoped. Things were touched upon and handled easily, and I kept waiting f

I absolutely adored this read, Danny and Hayden were perfect together. In this book Danny is a hardworking Firefighter while also helping his father’s landscaping business a few days a week. He grew up in a small town where his family was constantly judged and condemned because his father was an immigrant so he suffers with his own self confidence. It broke my heart how heavy other’s judgement weighed on him and held him back when it came to trusting his gut and being confident in his hard work. ...more

Danny and Hayden are ‘not allowed’ to be together because of Hayden’s father who also happens to be Danny’s chief too. I say ‘not allowed’ like that is going to stop them. Their secretive time together just makes this book so much more fun to read.

Danny is a good guy and a great firefighter. His character and his journey was inspirational – he’s trying to be the best person he can be and not compromise his values along the way either.

Hayden wants to find herself and no longer allow her insecurit

This is the first in a new series and is Danny and Hayden’s story. Danny is a rookie firefighter who works hard to prove himself in the station, and Hayden is returning to her hometown after college when she has a flat tire, and Danny comes to her aid. Hayden is the fire chief’s youngest daughter, and he is firm in his rules that his daughters are off limits. These two have some challenges to overcome, but they compliment each other perfectly. This is a beautifully written well-paced slow burn s ...more

Another amazing read by Laramie Briscoe! I can already tell this new series is going to be awesome!!

Danny and Holden are perfect for one another! They understand each other like no one else ever has. The only problem is he is the new rookie firefighter and her dad is the fire chief, but nothing can stop true love. This romance was so sweet. No unnecessary drama, just two people who met and got to know one another. Ugh, their romance was so hot and sweet!!

The writing was outstanding, like always.

Briscoe has mastered the “Hot cop, Hot firefighter, Hot paramedic” trope. The Bradford station is a new group of Firefighters to learn about and fall in love with.
Briscoe not only writes in the minute, but also manages to capture the characters’ backstory, in order to build depth.

This story is a realistic, slow burn and really builds. Danny and Hayden come to life through the story? They could literally be any one of us.

This is Danny and Hayden’s story. Danny is a Rookie firefighter and Hayden’s dad is the chief. Yep… Danny is conflicted as his interest grows for Hayden but he has an allegiance to the department he doesn’t want to mess up.

I couldn’t help but fall in love with Danny and his family. They kept this story filled with heart touching details and upped my desire to know more.

Hayden, her sister, and dad showed the challenges a family faces after being abandoned. As someone who had similar feelings, I

Hayden and Danny are cute couple. Hayden is the youngest daughter of the fire chief, however she isn’t a pushover and will let you know when you have crossed her boundaries. Danny is a hardworking son of an immigrant father and a hometown girl on the better side of the tracks. This is an insta-lust story, both characters are very genuine so you don’t really mind it as much. I liked the close family that both of them share. Lots of love, good banter and they genuinely like each other.

I have been a long time reader of Ms. Briscoe's - all the way back to the first Heaven Hill book but where I enjoyed this first book of this new series, I had mixed feelings about it by the end of the book.

In this first book of this new series, we meet Danny and Hayden - two people that have spent their whole life living in the same town but since they are from different areas, have never met.
