Prick of the Needle by Juliet Rose is the story of two people scared to love once again, but fate has other plans for them. Wren Meyers is a firefighter with demons in her closet. A former inmate and an ex-heroin addict, Wren struggles with her addiction every day while working as the leader of her team. Things take an unexpected twist for her when the fire season turns deadly and volunteers from nearby areas come to help them out. One of them is Elijah, the leader of the Navajo Nation crew. Stoic, silent, and diabetic, Elijah is a single father who seems to want to stay away from Wren. But as the fire rages around them and Elijah and Wren are stuck, they need to learn to rely on each other to make it out alive. Can they let their past go and embrace the present? Or will they hold back and lose their chance at love?
I became familiar with Juliet Rose's writing in We Don’t Matter and loved it. I had high expectations of this novel, and I was pleasantly surprised to find the narrative style to be even better and the execution of the story to be outstanding. Wren is relatable and real. Her reactions are realistic and sympathetic. While Wren is more expressive with her emotions and her desires, Elijah is a mystery for readers to understand. He is the strong and silent type, but he opens up and makes readers fall in love with him. Juliet Rose’s narrative style is so simple yet so powerful. I love how Prick of the Needle builds up slowly and steadily, and once it reaches its peak, there is no going back. I read this story in a single sitting, and I loved it.
