Kate Meader’s blazing Hot in Chicago firefighter series has “everything you want in a romance” (RT Book Reviews, Top Pick)! The flames of desire burn out of control in this sexy third novel when ex-lovers unexpectedly reunite for a sizzling affair that will have the director yelling, “Quiet on the set!”
Actor Molly Cade, America’s fallen sweetheart, finally has her shot at a Hollywood comeback with a dramatic new role as a tough-as-nails firefighter that promises to propel her back to the big time and restore her self-respect.
Wyatt Fox, resident daredevil at Engine Co. 6, needs a low-key job to keep him busy while he recovers from his latest rescue stunt. Consulting on a local movie shoot should add just enough spark to his day. Especially when in struts Molly Cade: the woman who worked his heart over good, and then left him in the Windy City dust.
Their story is straight out of a script: irrepressible, spunky heroine meets taciturn, smoldering hero. But these two refuse to be typecast, and when the embers of an old love are stoked, someone is bound to get burned…
I have been waiting for this book from the moment I finished Playing with Fire (one of my favorite reads from last year) and Kate Meader didn’t disappoint. I expected a fabulous contemporary romance packed with heat and chemistry, and she definitely delivered. I’ve been intrigued by the eldest Dempsey sibling since the first Hot in Chicago book, and now that I’ve read Wyatt’s story, he just might be my favorite tall, dark, brooding firefighter I’ve ever read.
Years ago, before Wyatt joined the CFD and Molly became a famous actress, they were just two strangers who met at a bar – and had a week filled with mind-blowing sex. They never got each others’ names and never saw each other again… until Wyatt is hired to help out with Molly’s production of her new movie, and these two are thrown together once again. Time has definitely not put a damper on the wicked hot chemistry and lust they have – if anything, their chemistry burns even hotter this time around. But with Molly living the celebrity lifestyle with zero privacy and Wyatt living the quiet life with a secret he doesn’t want out in the open, can an actual relationship ever work out between them?
I loved how well Molly and Wyatt meshed, despite being total opposites. Molly is an outgoing, sassy sweetheart, though the past year for her has put her through the wringer and made her develop trust issues. Wyatt is protective, loyal, and is the only one of his siblings that likes to stick to himself. But he finds himself reaching out more when he’s with Molly, and I loved that she brought that out in him. These two are absolutely meant to be together – they make the sweetest (and HOTTEST) couple!
If you love your romances with sexy men in uniform, look no further than the Hot in Chicago series. These firefighters (and a mayor) will seriously melt your panties off – Kate Meader knows how to write her dirty talk and alpha heroes. And the tight-knit family relationship of the Dempseys is sure to warm your heart. I highly recommend this series if you like well written, steamy contemporary romances!
