あらすじ・解説

She’s the one girl he can’t have. 

With his dimpled grin and devilish charm, firefighter Gavin Bailey is hot as a five-alarm fire and twice as dangerous. The youngest of five brothers, he’s the daredevil of the family. Until the unexpected strikes and he finds himself sidelined. 

Skylar Stanley’s life didn’t just fall apart. It exploded. Spectacularly. Dropped by her publisher and her agent, and dumped by her boyfriend, she suddenly has no place to live and a career circling the drain. She comes home to the quirky, feuding small town she hasn’t lived in since kindergarten to pick up the pieces. And hopefully find her mojo. 

Gavin would happily help Skylar get her groove back - in and out of the bedroom - except for one big problem. Her dad is Gavin’s boss, mentor, and the closest thing he’s ever had to a father. 

As much as Gavin loves racing headlong into danger, Skylar is a risk of a different kind. One that he’s determined to avoid. 

But the line between friends and lovers gets awfully blurry, and Gavin just might find the one thing that truly scares him.  

Losing her. 

Author’s note: The wild child of the Bailey clan meets his match in a shy writer who’s braver than she thinks. A sexy, feel-good story with pranks and shenanigans, Bailey-style brotherly love, a rescue kitten, plus delightfully dirty fantasies come true and a happily-ever-after that will make your heart burst with sunshine and rainbows. 

The Bailey Brothers series is meant to be heard in order. Start with book one, Protecting You.

Excellent story of Gavin and Sky

Stephen Dexter and Savannah Peachwood do a great job of bringing the characters of Gavin and Sky to life. Stephen captures the fun side of Gavin while Savannah represents the shy nature of Sky but also her building confidence throughout the book. They put emotions into the characters and didn't miss a beat throughout the entire narrative.

This story has everything you've come to expect from the Baileys and company - More clues to the Eliza mystery, pranks, new Logan bro-isms, Gram wisdom, love, friendship, and our favorite characters. Also, the three brothers spoiling and loving Princess Squeaker - Swoon!

We get a more in-depth look at the youngest, fearless Bailey - what drives him and what he's thinking. It also introduces the very intriguing Skylar with her anxious, shy nature. Friends-to-lovers, it was great to watch Sky come out of her shell and become braver while hanging out with Gavin.

"Now? I wasn’t afraid. He’d pushed me out of my comfort zone in so many ways. He hadn’t set out to show me I was brave, but he had. Because that was the thing, when I was with him, I did feel brave. It was like he sucked all the fear out of the room and made it disappear."

I didn't want to put this book down until I got the very last page. Another stellar book by Claire Kingsley - and that epilogue!

Greatness

This is such a great friends to lovers story. We have our imaginative writer and our daredevil baby brother finding their way together. Throw in some suspense from our running background mystery and the hilarity of townies and pranks, it’s a perfect listen.

Both narrators were perfect for these characters. They did great jobs conveying the little things that made these characters unique. The accents and tones were on point. Everything from the print edition was magnified here.

Something About Hearing the Words Spoken

This book in the Bailey Brothers series was a wee bit emotional because of Gavin's thoughts on his parents. But hearing it was quite emotional, Gavin is precious. So much like the otter, his grandmother compares him to, sweet, playful and devoted. There is no way you will not enjoy this production of this book. Both narrators did a fantastic job and brought the characters to life. You need this series in your life.

The Adventures of Gav and Sky!

This book is amazing!!

I honestly didn’t think this story could get any bette, but then you add Stephen Dexter and Savannah Peachwood into the mix and OMG they just knocked it out of the park!!

Claire never fails to deliver and amazing hero that I just want to gobble right up! Gavin is the perfect level of crazy! He’s wild and untamed in the best ways and Claire does the absolute best job at describing him I can just picture that cheeky smile convincing me to do something insane like jump off a bridge into freezing cold Water!

Skylar reminds me so much of me it scares me! I love her so dang much! She is just too adorable for life, all of her fears and insecurities felt so real, but what really drew me in was her though spirals it’s exactly the way my brain thinks in anxious or uncomfortable situations and Claire just nailed it!

Savannah and Stephen did wonders with this performance I was so absorbed in the story I forgot that I had already read the book once and was on the edge of my seat through the more intense scenes spicy and otherwise. Don’t even get me started on Stephen’s growly voice!

Rush to Listen!

I was really worried about Gavin and Stephen wouldn't get the youth of his voice but I don't know why I was so worried because he killed it! Savannah was wonderful as Skyler and you could really feel her awkwardness of Skyler off the page. Claire and team always pick the perfect narrators to bring her books to life!

Get Ready to feel all the Cookies!!!
The 4th installment in the Bailey Brothers series did NOT disappoint. As the youngest Bailey Brother Gavin aka otter had no fear then he gets "hit" by the Chief's daughter blowing into town. Skylar trying to find her place when her life imploded leaving her to wonder how she would move forward. She didn't make friends easily she was shy and always in her head and it also didn't help that her dumb of a ex cheated on her and left her with out any care.

Skyler or sparrow spends a lot of time with Gavin and they become fast friends and maybe more. It may take something to happen for Gavin to realize his true feelings for Skyler but trust in the story that it all ends up in a HEA.

You also find out more about what's going on with the discovery of Bailey/Haven Feud and the secret letters and a treasure?

Lets also talk Cara and #CaraKarma I think this is possibly my favorite character written for a female, you know she's got some turmoil and issues but she's always a bada$$ and helping others. She's "adopts" Skyler like she did for Fiona.

All I have to say is it better be Cara next....do you hear me Claire!!!!!

I left a note

Fantastic narration! The narrators bring the story to life wonderfully. This series just keeps getting better with every book. Every time I think I have a favorite. Gavin and Skylar have one of the best meet cutes ever.

Skylar comes back to the town that she hasn’t lived in since she was in kindergarten. She runs to her dad’s for a change of scenery. She’s went through a break up in more than one way. She’s experiencing writer’s block. Maybe Tilikum is the perfect escape.

After meeting Skylar, Gavin has to be off work on medical leave. Gavin isn’t used to a sedentary life. Deciding to be Skylar’s first Tilikum friend turns out to be the best decision he’s ever made. She’s great to hang out with, and it has benefits for her too. Can they just be friends?

Skylar’s mom shows up needing a place to stay too. Interesting is definitely a word to describe that situation. The family pranks in this one are on point. I’m not sure it can be beat. You get a bonus romance besides the main characters.
Everyone needs a Cara in their life. She’s one of my favorite characters ever, male or female. Fingers crossed that she becomes a heroine. I can’t leave a review without mentioning the epilogue. Oh my goodness! My mind is going in so many different directions on what happens next.

Otter & Sparrow

Every time I think I have found the Bailey Brother that I love the most, along comes the next one to steal my heart! 💟

Gavin was everything that I hoped he would be and more. He works hard, plays hard, and loves with his whole being. My heart broke for him with his feelings of not being wanted.

Skylar and her social awkwardness was endearing. Sky, and her morbidly random facts, really need to sit down with June from the Bootleg Springs series. The conversations they could have!!!

I loved the closeness that Gavin and Cara have and was honestly surprised by it. I cannot wait for Cara's story. And the secondary "second-chance" romance that played out between another couple was sweet and revealed so much about the Bailey parents.

Thank you, Claire, for such a beautiful love story about two people who are meant to be together. And I adored the kitten "mommy"!

Can't wait for Logan's story.

Stephen Dexter and Savannah Peachwood were perfectly cast to voice Gavin and Skylar. They each brought depth and nuance to the characters and their narration brought their hopes and fears to life. Stephen's narration reflected the boyish playfulness of Gavin and the tone of his voice was heartbreaking when Gavin was speaking to Gram about how he had no memories of his parents.

Five well-deserved stars! 🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟

HIGHLY RECOMMEND

Skylar has just been dumped by her boyfriend. Who also happened to be her literary agent. Double dumped. And he asked her to leave so his new girlfriend can move in. He has been cheating for over a year with another writer. A married one. Who do I call? Where will I go? So even though he isn't normally my first choice I called my dad, the Fire Chief of Tillicum.

Gavin was a firefighter along with his twin brothers, Logan and Levi. He and Levi are digging a fire line for a huge wild fire that is too close to town when he charges in to save another firefighter who was going over a cliff. Gavin was an adrenalin junky and joker. He was serious about nothing except firefighting and then everyone paid close attention since he had an uncanny sense for where a fire was heading. And this fire was turning and he needed to find safety. So he jumped back off the cliff to deploy a fire shelter.

Unbelievable, he just survived rescuing a fellow firefighter from a forest fire just to be hit by a car! But, when he sees the gorgeous woman who hit him he smiles. And continues to smile until he finds out she's the fire chief's daughter. Off limits to a player like him.

Skylar is dismayed! She arrives in town and hits a man stepping off the curb. Not just any man. A gorgeous man. And one of her dad's firefighters.

Skylar is afraid of everything and Gavin is afraid of nothing. Skylar is quiet and Gavin is totally not. Total opposites attract.

Of course I loved this book! He's a Bailey!!! I love this town with it's feud and all the quirky squirrels. I love how Gavin is a daredevil, but saves a kitten. I love Skylar and how she spaces out with story plots and the Gavin Effect.

You know you found a great author when you get invested in the town and all the characters. They are your family. And the Baileys are the family I definitely want to be a part of !!! ❤

Audiobook - Stephen Dexter and Savanah Peachwood are PERFECT in bringing Gavin and Skylar to life!!! What awesome narrators. They have Gavin and Skylar's personalities down pat. I read this book before listening to the audio and having them read to me made me even closer to the characters. Is it wrong that I want to check out other books narrated by Stephen Dexter just to hear his voice?

absolutely amazing story

5+*
Gavin (otter) is the risk taker of the baileys a firefighter dedicated to his job.
Skylar has decided her dad's place is the best place to go after the break up with her boyfriend.
Two opposites that are drawn together.
This book was amazing I've loved Gavin's personality since the start of the series and his book didn't disappoint.
I loved the antics of him be prepared to laugh out loud and not been able to put the book down.
