When Jamie Rutherford takes a temporary assignment as lieutenant of Boston Fire's Engine 59, she doesn't anticipate any problems. She's been in the fire service for a long time and, even though she's fairly new to Boston, she knows how to make any firehouse her home. What she's not prepared for is her reaction to firefighter Scott Kincaid.Scott is looking for a wife. It's been a fun ride as a single guy, but he's tired of being the third wheel, and nearly losing his brother-in-law finally made him realize just how much he wants a family of his own. When the new guy at the firehouse turns out to be a capable, confident and very attractive woman, his plan is completely derailed.Hooking up with a fellow firefighter has never been part of Jamie's plan, but she's tempted by Scott—even though getting involved with him could tarnish the reputation she's worked so hard for. And Scott can't stop thinking about Jamie, despite the fact that she's his superior and not sticking around. Chemistry can crush the best-laid plans, though, and while Jamie and Scott might not be each other's future…there's no resisting the right now.
Oh Shannon Stacey, you’ve done it again.
I am so madly in love with the men of Shannon Stacey’s Boston Fire!! (I truly hope she has MANY more stories planned for this series!!) Add in a female lead who is not only kick ass, but comes from my home state of Nebraska? I’m sold!!
Scotty Kincaid is the story I’ve been waiting for. I’ve loved his family, but I knew his story would be a good one. And I wasn’t let down!! Falling for the temporary LT? Come on, you know that’s bound to be a great story line!!! And Shannon Stacey did not disappoint.
Scott is on a “break” from his playboy ways, and the guys tease him at every chance. Jamie is the temporary LT filling in after Danny’s accident. And the tension/chemistry between these two? It’s fantastic!! And while they both fight it a little? You know it’s going to be amazing.
One thing that Shannon Stacey does well is pull you into the story fully. She has amazing secondary characters and you truly feel like you’re part of the family. If you’re a fan of contemporary romance? You need to be invested in her stories!
