MEET THE CALLAWAYS! This NYT Bestselling Series features love, mystery and adventure and has already sold over 1 million copies! Join the fun. This is where it all begins!

The second oldest of the Callaway clan, Aiden Callaway veered from the family tradition of urban firefighting and became a smokejumper, never questioning his choice until the job took the life of his friend, Kyle, and left Aiden with injuries and fractured memories. Everyone blames Aiden for what happened, but he doesn't remember, nor is he sure he wants to remember. The truth may clear Aiden of blame but destroy Kyle's reputation and hurt the people he left behind.

Aiden seeks help from an unlikely ally ...

Sara had always been untouchable, sweet, innocent, his sister's best friend, and the girl next door. But one reckless night in their youth took their relationship to a new level. Sara has never forgiven or forgotten the way Aiden brought it crashing down, but she's no longer that girl with the crazy crush. She's a woman in search of her own truth.

The sparks between Aiden and Sara have been smoldering for a very long time. Sara is afraid to take another chance on a man who broke her heart, and Aiden knows better than anyone how dangerous an intense fire can be.

As teenagers they weren't ready for each other. Are they ready now?

The sample worked fine for me. I already bought and read the book. I loved it! I'm so excited that Barbara Freethy is writing a new series. The Callways are an intriguing family and  Aiden and Sara are an awesome couple. If you love romance, connected books and lots of emotion, you'll love this book!

Fantastic story! Once I started reading, I couldn't put this book down. So excited that Barbara is writing a new series. I already love the Callaways!

Before I started reading On a Night Like this by Barbara Freethy I assumed that it would be a standard love story. I could not have been more wrong. Book 1 in the Callaways series tells the love story of Aiden and Sara. It also follows the two characters as they search for answers within their own personal lives. Aiden is searching for the answers surrounding circumstances of the death of a close friend and Sara is trying to figure out her relationship with her last living relative. Her father. Their quest for answers causes Aiden and Sara to confront their feelings for each other. But are their feelings for each other strong enough to conquer the answers they find? Or will it tear them apart? On a Night Like This is a contemporary love story with suspense thrown in. I found this book to be an entertaining and emotionally charged read.

4.5 stars! I love Barbara Freethy's books, she is an excellent story teller and keeps you engaged from beginning to end.  I am so excited for a new series. I loved the Callaway family! Sara and Aiden were fun and interesting, as individuals and as a couple. I am excited to read about the rest of the Callaway family.  Freethy did a great job of giving enough of a glimpse of each family member but still focusing on Aiden and Sara. Loved it!

Great story that has lots of twists and turns. Love that Barbara is doing another connected family book series. Absolutely loved the Angel's Bay books and am looking forward to more stories about the Callaway clan.

Not very impressed. Good story. Too redundant. How many times do we need to be told how smart Sara is or how handsome Aiden is. We get it . Just get on with the story. Hopefully will get better as the series goes along. Plan on reading the second book since the story is a good.
