INSIDE BURNING BUILDINGS, Captain Caleb Holt lives by the firefighter's adage: NEVER LEAVE YOUR PARTNER. Yet at home, in the cooling embers of his marriage, he lives by his own rules.

Growing up, his wife Catherine always dreamed of marrying a loving, brave firefighter . . . just like her father. Now, after seven years of marriage, she wonders when she stopped being "good enough." Countless arguments and anger have them wanting to move on to something with more sparks.

As they prepare for divorce, Caleb's father challenges him to commit to a 40-day experiment: "The Love Dare." Wondering if it's even worth the effort, Caleb reluctantly agrees, not realizing how it will change his world forever.

Surprised by what he discovers about the meaning of love, Caleb begins to see his wife and marriage as worth fighting for. But is it too late? His job is to rescue others. Now Captain Holt must face his toughest job ever . . . rescuing his wife's heart.

Which would you think is the more important aspect of a man's life: 1) he is a firefighter who saves lives on a regular basis, or 2) his marriage? If you answered 2), you will love this book. And in case you don't want to experience any unnecessary excitement or suspense, the overall message is: don't try to maintain any individuality, achievement, or outside interests in marriage. Not only does heaven disapprove, but it results in a lot of pointless sniping about nothing, and books like this. But the good news is that apparently marriage is easy to maintain by anyone who is not a petulant child: it's just a matter of a damp rag here, a bag of Chick-Fil-A there. Somewhat less interesting than the movie version, as it lacks the raw charisma of Kirk Cameron.
