The Temperature Is Rising…
Firefighter Cole Everett's life revolves around the firehouse. Committed to saving lives--and to the guys who always have his back in the most dangerous moments on the job--Cole's focus is a coveted spot on the Fairview Rescue Squad. When his captain asks him to mentor a rookie firefighter, he jumps at the chance, hoping it will help to prove his skill. But the new "guy" is none other than Savannah Nelson, a female firefighter as stubbornly determined as Cole is, and a whole lot curvier in all the right places . . .
Savannah won't let anyone extinguish her dream of fulfilling her family legacy and becoming a top notch firefighter--and she's happily surprised when strong-willed, sexy Cole is willing to give her the chance she deserves. Concentrating on the job isn't always easy when the heat between them flares higher every day, but Savannah won't give up--not even when one of Station Eight's veterans seems bent on trashing her reputation. To stop a string of possible arsons, Savannah and Cole will need to eliminate every distraction--but can they let their love go up in flames?
4 out of 5 stars
I love a good firefighter romance so it was fun to see the spin on the typical and have both the male MC and female MC being firefighters. This was a "slow burn" type of romance, so they don't go jumping into bed together right away. There are a couple love sex scenes but this book focused more on story building than making you sweat.
Savannah's attitude really wore on me after a while. I love a female character that isn't a doormat but she just tried too hard to be "tough". She REALLY played out the sexism card too. There was a character in the book who makes it known that he doesn't care for her being part of the crew but she had the attitude even before then. She is also an extremely impulsive person and doesn't think before acting or speaking most of the time.
Cole is pretty much the opposite. He prides himself on keeping his cool and planning things out. He stays calm and collected, which unfortunately comes across to Savannah as emotionless. He's very dedicated to his firehouse family and is serious about getting Savannah ready for the job.
This book was the second in the series but it can be read as a standalone. I did not read the first one in the series but I didn't feel as if I was missing any super important information. The characters from the first book appear in this one as well. I will probably go back and read the first one since I really enjoyed this one.
