I felt the heat!

I am loving this book, it's 3 stories written by different author's with a reoccurring theme. FIREMEN!
The authors out did themselves with this book, the stories are incredible.
Story number one is by Lorie O'Clare and it's about Mary Hamilton who has been secretly in love with Nate Armstrong for as long as she can remember. They come together after a tragedy and Nate finally realizes that he has found a piece of his heart.
I really enjoyed this story, it had mystery, action and a sexy loving man. If you like HEA then this is a great story for you.
Story number two is by P.J. Mellor and it's about Summer Wadsworth. Yikes, what a name! But, it really is perfect for this character. She is so much fun to read. She's full of life and she had me laughing out loud quite often. Her knight in shinning firemen gear is Thorne Paxton, he use to be a player and then he met Summer and things just spiraled to HEA.
Story number 3 is by Lydia Parks. Harding working Hannah Howard is a career girl and working hard in the mayor's office. Lee Evans slides into town as new fire chief and has made some requests for the budget but that's not all he's requesting! I swear I felt the butterflies in my tummy along with Hannah!
Each and every story was enjoyable and the hero's delicious! If your looking for the perfect Hot Beach Read then this is it! It's fun and full of action to keep you interested!

There is nothing like HOT FIREMEN!!!
Three very different stories with one thing in common FIREMEN!! What's not to love about that? Every story was unique. Nice quick reads. Like most anthologies, you are left wanting more. While the stories won't make you spontaneously combust, keep a cool drink handy to help with the heat. Fight Fire with Fire - Jorie O'Clare - 4 Stars Mary Hamilton as always loved Nate Armstrong. Growing up together and living on the same street, wasn't enough for a happily ever after though. One tragedy later, things have changed. Years apart has not cooled the want for Mary. She still loves Nate and is determined not to let things just pass her by anymore. Nate's world has been crushed. Nothing will ever be the same. From this heartbreak there is a new light and it is Mary. The pesky neighbor girl is all grown up and a breath of fresh air. This is a nice story of two people that have always been meant for each other. The nemesis in the story seems like an afterthought, but since his part is so tiny in the story, it can be forgiven. Great little story with a happy ending. Heat Wave - P.J. Mellor - 3 Stars While a fun story to read, this story had something missing for me. Summer Wadsworth is a divorcee moving on with her life. Times are hard for her and after a house fire; times are going to be a bit rougher and hotter. Thorne Paxton is new in town and just met the most ridiculous woman. Could she be the one for him? The humor of their circumstances was refreshing. Nothing seems to go right for these two. I also enjoyed the supporting cast. It made me want to have neighbors as great as those lovely ladies. The story seemed forced and ended abruptly. It was a sweet read but had very little depth to it. Smoldering Lust - Lydia Parks - 4.5 Stars Saving the best for last. Hannah Hayward has been attracted to Lee Evans since her junior year in high school. One smoldering kiss her senior year and 14 years later Lee is back in town and sexier than ever. Lee has always had Hannah up upon a pedestal. The prize he never could claim. He came back home to have closure. Seeing Hannah has renewed his old feelings for her and they are sexier than ever. This is an easy going story of two people who know what they want and are about to get it. The only disappointment I have with this story is that it ended. I wanted more of them.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.

A good anthology
"Fight Fire with Fire" by Lorie O'Clare. Since they were childhood friends, Mary Hamilton secretly has loved Nate Armstrong, but he has never shown any signs that he wants more than being her buddy. However, when a mutual friend dies in a suspicious fire, they turn to each other for solace and more. -------------Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.

"Heat Wave" by P.J. Mellor. Firefighter Thorne Paxton saves the life of Summer Wadsworth when her house burns down. She finds him hotter than the inferno that destroyed her house, but ever time they seem ready to heat the sheets, duty calls.-----------
"Smoldering Lust" by Lydia Parks. Hannah Hayward works in the mayor's office managing the budget. However, the new Fire Chief Lee Evans wants more than the bottom line from her. She wants to go over the numbers on the sheets with the return of the town's bad boy after he was over a decade away.-------
Although the novella format limits character development, these firefighters and the women who enflame them with desire and lust will blaze readers with their escapade and sexcapades.-------
