Playing with Fire (Hot in Chicago Book 2) by Kate Meaders continues with this smokin’ hot firefighter story.
Alex Dempsey, the only female firefighter at Engine Co. 6 is the proud sister of those roudy Dempsey brothers who have gained attention in the media recently and work there too.
One of the many reasons why I love Alex is that she is a bold, strong woman who knows what she wants. But just can’t seem to find it, at least when it comes to men.
For years, Alexandra has had a flirtatious and hightly kinetic attraction with Eli Cooper, the mayor of Chicago. There’s just one problem. Alex is a firefighter and Eli has been a staunch advocate for a male only profession. Not to mention that her brothers would never accept her relationship with Eli, or would they?
Eli Cooper is conflicted, he absolutely lusts after Alex but will his feelings about her being a firefighter get in the way? Will he change his mind when he finds himself needing to be rescued?
Convinced he’s up to something Alex is hesitant to pursue and act on her feelings. When a secret from Eli’s past resurfaces will she be able to accept it or will it push them apart for good?
The attraction between these two is super intense. I love how this story, like the others, keeps moving forward with all of the Dempsey family. Not to mention that Alexandra is a fabulous heroine and her sexy brothers have a few interesting stories to read as well! I love how she’s confident with who she is in every way! It adds for a lot of excitement in the way she responds to situations. Everyone should have an Alex in their lives 🙂

In Case You Missed It:
Originally from Ireland, Kate cut her romance reader teeth on Maeve Binchy and Jilly Cooper novels, with some Mills & Boon thrown in for variety. Give her tales about brooding mill owners, oversexed equestrians, and men who can rock an apron or a fire hose, and she’s there. Now based in Chicago, she writes sexy contemporary romance with alpha heroes and strong heroines who can match their men quip for quip.
