Overview

Katie Dane knows better than to mix business and pleasure, but her new bartender, Ryan Blake, is simply irresistible . . . and besides, she doesn't plan on working there much longer. That's if things go according to plan. But they never do, do they?

Ryan, the sexy heartbreaker of Station One, is determined to rejoin the force. Tending bar in the meantime seems like the perfect idea, especially when it means he can spend his nights working next to his sultry new boss . . . if only the bar didn't keep catching fire.

Throw in a grizzled career criminal, a luscious-bodied barfly, a Bachelor Fireman bachelorette party, a flash-fire romance, and a million-dollar money pot, and suddenly playing with fire never seemed so much like falling in love.

I very much enjoyed this book. I did have one or two issues with it that I overlooked because of the characters I liked so much. I didn't care for the starting fires part and thought it could have been handled differently. Most of the time I liked Katie Dane and all time I liked Ryan Blake. I also liked the other fire fighters in the story and can't wait for them to get their own books. The growth in this book worked well too. It's a feel good read.

Hot For Fireman is quite a humorous and lively romance that had me bursting out in laughter from the beginning. I mean, Jennifer Bernard definitely creates a story that is witty and charming and so loveable even if you want to shake the characters into some sense. There are some scenes that occur in this story that are quite bizzare at times, but very humorous. I had a blast of giggles and sexy fun with this book. I just couldn’t put it down because it really won me over. We have the silly bantering between Ryan and Katie, and do they love to argue. Some interesting ideas for saving the bar…that never turn out as planned. We see more delicious happenings from the Bachelor Firemen team and boy did they rock the house. I fell for Ryan’s story hard, probably because you fall for his charm in the first book, and you see how he is taken down a notch in this one, and the way he ends up falling in love and it turns out to be with a woman you wouldn’t see him with, but by the end they were just perfect for each other. They got each other in the most unique and strange ways, and I enjoyed seeing how well these two fought for each other in the end, which is when it matters most. This is a romance that is witty, strange at times and fun and silly. It had a different take than I was expecting, and it was so unpredictable that I just craved every moment of it.

Too many plot spoilers here. They ruined the book. No reason to buy it now that they revealed every detail of the story. Bn, please do something to these ppl that do this.

The author of this book needs a dictionary. A fireman stokes boilers, a Firefighter, fights fires. This review is written by a proud wife of a career Firefighter. My advice would be to skip this so called series. Thank you to ALL the firefighters, police officers, and first responders. The one star is required to enter my post, and does not reflect my opinion.

This is the second book in the Bachelor Firemen of San Gabriel by Jennifer Bernard. This story takes place approximately a year and a half since The Fireman Who Loved Me. In this book, we are re-introduced to Ryan, the young stud who was originally the intended date for Melissa in the first book. He has been on a leave of absence after a mishap that almost left a woman dead when she hid out in the plug-buggy and Ryan responded to a call alone, when he shouldn't have. A woman with a mental illness shot at him and injured the woman hiding in the plug-buggy. Instead of being fired, Captain Brody had put Ryan on leave of absence. He returns to San Gabriel after some time soul searching. His first stop is the Hair of the Dog bar, just down the block from the firehouse. There he meets, Katie Dane who is filling in for her father, who recently had a heart attack. Her family chose her to run the bar, since she was only in graduate school and not already working another job. Plus she is her father's favorite, so he is who he wants tending his bar. But Katie knows nothing about running a business, and the bills are piling up. When her first big idea to draw in a crowd turns out to be a bust, and Ryan showing up to help out, she hires him to tend bar. After a small fire scare that Katie tells her family about, they all seem disappointed that the bar doesn't actually burn down. After that, Katie starts figuring out a way for the bar to burn down so her family can collect the insurance money. Unfortunately, Katie has no idea that Ryan was a fireman and he keeps saving the bar.  We don't get to see much of the guys from the firehouse, except during a little strip tease some of them do for a bachelorette party. Then we get to see (or at least imagine) quite a bit of them. *wink* Captain Brody and Melissa, from book 1, show up in several scenes and it is nice to be able to check up on them and see how they are doing. The themes of forgiveness was once more in this book. Forgiving others, yourself and acceptance of the past. I enjoyed this book and gave it 3 stars on Goodreads, because I would have liked to have seen a bit less of a cliched ending.

A real love story! Reviewed by: Ashleigh Book provided by: Edelweiss Review originally posted at Romancing the Book Review: Ryan Blake is making a comeback, and damn if he isn’t still the hottest thing next to an inferno there is. If only Ryan could make the last 18 months disappear then his life wouldn’t have gotten so far off track. Walking into the Hair of the Dog was just by chance but on that hot summer day, Ryan is about to get knocked on his butt by fate. Running into Katie at “the Dog” really made him stand up and pay attention for the first time in a long time. Will keeping his past a secret make her leave him in the end or will his past be the thing that brings these two together in the end? When trouble lurks around Katie, Ryan may just be the only one that can save her from herself. Katie Dane, never wanted to be in the Hair of the Dog, let alone running it. But when her father needed to leave to heal after a heart attack she couldn’t say no. That was weeks ago and she has been miserable since day one. With bills piling up and Ryan Blake lurking around every corner of her mind she just wants to run away. If something isn’t done soon, the Dog will go under and it will all be her fault. Maybe creating a little fire between the sheets with Ryan will give her some ideas about other fires that could solve her problems as well. But when Ryan gets trapped inside because of her, just how far is Katie willing to go to save the man she didn’t want but fell for instead? Being a second novel in the Bachelor’s series, I wasn’t sure what to expect with such a great opener (The Fireman Who Loved Me also reviewed on RtB), but Jennifer Bernard did it again. Not only did this book keep me riveted from the beginning with suspense and hot firemen to the rescue, but the love story behind it all was so real that I didn’t want it to end. Jennifer Bernard is an author to watch out for, she is on the rise and I can’t wait to see what else she comes up with in the future!
