FLIRTING WITH FIRE A HOT IN CHICAGO NOVEL KATE MEADER
“Sexy and sassy…I loved this book!” #1 New York Times bestselling author Jude Deveraux
I think I just found a new must buy series. Flirting with Fire is book one in Kate Meader's series Hot in Chicago. She released a novella, Rekindle the Flame, in the anthology in Baby it's Cold Outside a prequel to the series and I loved that story. When I first finished the book I marked on Goodreads four stars, but after a few days the story has set with me and I am still thinking about it and with that I think I need to give it the extra star because it's really stuck with me. It's going to be one of those books that I will still be think about it months from now. On a personal note I have a soft spot for Fireman Romance, I grew up the daughter of a fireman and they always resonate with me. Luke is a hot headed but he his fiercely loyal to his family and his fire house; once scorned by his now ex-wife he is now jaded about love. Kinsey is career driven and it has already cost her one relationship one month before the wedding she gets dumped after moving halfway across the U.S. for him.
A man this smoking should set off alarms…
PR guru Kinsey Taylor is done with men—especially ones who refuse to respect her talents just because she’s a woman. Given the assignment of rehabilitating the reputation of Chicago’s Engine Company 6, she isn’t going to let anybody tell her how to do her job, including firefighting Luke Almeida. Even if he does make her hormones rage like a blazing building.
Before it’s too late to douse the flames…
Luke figures he knows how to run his firehouse just fine, and that doesn’t include having to prance around half-naked for the Men on Fire calendar scheme cooked up by some ice princess publicist in a tight skirt and man-killer heels. But if he’s going to be driven mad by this media circus, he’s determined to have his revenge by making Kinsey crazy, too—for him.
And when fire meets ice, one thing is certain…there’s going to be plenty of steam.
I love the chemistry and the comradery in the book and the sneak peek into future books about the other siblings. Luke is hot, my favorite kinda man, not afraid to back down and loyal almost to a fault. Kinsey is doubtful of her own ability to keep an man, thinking all men say they want a strong woman until they live with one for a while then change their minds and want a soft biddable woman, much of what her former fiance did to her. Luke soon realizes where his life is going and what he needs to do to get back on a path that is best for him, now he just has to convince Kinsey that she is pivotal to his happiness. The next book is Playing with Fire and I can't wait!!
