Author: Kate Meader
Series: Hot in Chicago
Publication Date: September 29th, 2015

Synopsis: As the only female firefighter at Engine Co. 6, Alexandra Dempsey gets it from all sides: the male coworkers who think she can’t do the job, the wives and girlfriends who see her as a threat to their firefighter men, and her overprotective foster brothers who want to shelter their baby sister at all costs. So when she single-handedly saves the life of Eli Cooper, Chicago’s devastatingly handsome mayor, she assumes the respect she’s longed for will finally come her way. But it seems Mr. Mayor has other ideas…

Eli Cooper’s mayoral ratings are plummeting, his chances at reelection dead in the water. When a sexy, curvaceous firefighter gives him the kiss of life, she does more than bring him back to the land of the living—she also breathes vitality into his campaign. Riding the wave of their feel-good story might prop up Eli’s flagging political fortunes, but the sizzling attraction between them can go nowhere; he’s her boss, and there are rules that must be obeyed. But you know what they say about rules: they’re made to be broken.

Review: I absolutely LOVED this book. Alex and Eli were HOT. We first meet them in Flirting with Fire and you could tell in that book that they had chemistry and I squeed when I found out that this was going to be their book and Meader did NOT disappoint me. For the most part I loved Alex, she is badass and amazing. I was slightly disappointed towards the end of the book in her reasoning for distancing herself from Eli, it just seemed a little silly to me, at least the of the two reasons that she chose to distance herself from him. However, Meader gave me a great book and I am looking forward to the next one in the series and I am going to see about finding the two novellas. I just love this series so much.

Stars: ★★★★
Recommendation: YES!!!
I received an ARC of this book from Pocket Books on Netgalley. This in no way affected my review.

      Definitely! This is the second book in this series, I really like it way better than I liked her first series. There is also a novella out that takes place before this one, I haven’t read it yet, and she’s got another novella coming out that takes place before the first book. I think it comes out this month. Sorry it took me a few days to reply, thanks for commenting!
