Rick Gullotti lives the good life. He fights fires, dates beautiful women—though none long enough so they cast wistful glances at jewelry stores—and has great friends. And thanks to helping out the elderly couple who own his building, his rent is low. But when concerns about their health lead him to contact their only son, his life starts getting away from him.

Jessica Broussard has no interest in leaving sunny San Diego or her cushy corner office for Boston, but her father—who happens to be her boss—dispatches her to deal with the grandparents she's never met. She's unprepared for the frigid winter, loving relatives who aren't the monsters she's been led to believe, and the hot, scruffy firefighter who lives upstairs.

At first, Jessica is determined to get back to her comfortable life as quickly as possible. All she has to do is talk her grandparents into selling their monstrosity of a house and moving to a retirement community. But she underestimates Rick's dedication—and his considerable charm. Nobody's taking advantage of his friends on his watch, even if that makes the tempting southern California girl with the long legs his adversary. Unfortunately for them both, the only thing more urgent than the matter at hand is their sizzling chemistry, and it's quickly becoming too strong to resist.

Oh guys, Shannon Stacey’s newest series – Boston Fire – is so smokin’, you’ll love this one!!!

Rick and Jessica may be my favorite couple of hers, and that’s saying a lot! I love that her characters are older, that they’ve lived life and just haven’t settled down yet. (And Rick and Jessica have been so busy with careers that it’s totally understandable!)

I love the story of Jessica reconciling with her long-lost grandparents. And I love how Rick is like family to them, and how he’s just looking out for them the whole time. And the chemistry with these two? It’s AWESOME!! Their love story is absolutely full of FEELS!!! (And some steamy chemistry – but mostly? FEELS!!)

(And it doesn’t help that she sneaks hockey in here – because we all know I love hockey!!)

Shannon Stacey has the perfect fit of romance, humor and good old fun! I love reading her books, the characters always feel like I know them – and this is no exception!

If you’re a fan of Shannon Stacey? I can’t recommend her new Boston Fire series enough!!


I'm a homeschooling hockey mom from southern Colorado! I spend my free time blogging and reading (when I'm not at the ice arena or hiking in the Rockies!) and I have a crazy addiction to water bottles!
