Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
Repressed L.A. news producer Melissa McGuire and steely-nerved captain Harry Brody of the country’s only all-bachelor fire squad are flung together by chances both cute and contrived in Bernard’s contemporary debut. When Melissa’s meddling grandmother determines to find Melissa a husband, she schemes up a way to win her workaholic, love-burned granddaughter one of the hunky firefighters in a charity bachelor auction. Cerebral Melissa is initially horrified by the idea of a numbskull manly man flexing his muscles at her. Then she starts spending time with Harry, who’s both sexy and deep. The pace is swift and the plot keeps twisting thanks to a spoiled news anchor, family tribulations, emotional baggage, and five-alarm fire drama. Despite a few weak premises that insist on propelling the story, this is a solid, sexy, and funny start to a planned series. Agent: Alexandra Machinist, Janklow & Nesbit Associates. (May)

    The Fireman Who Loved Me is Jennifer Bernard debut Novel. It is

    The Fireman Who Loved Me is Jennifer Bernard debut Novel. It is a fun firefighter romance.
    Melissa’s Grandmother Nellie wants her granddaughter to meet a nice man and settle down. So for Melissa’s birthday she wins her a date with a sexy fireman from a charity auction. There is a little misunderstanding with the auction that brings Brody and Melissa together.


    I fell in love with Grams since Melissa and Brody’s first date. Which did not go to well since they fought most of the time, but ended up pretty steamy at her doorstep. Grams had me laughing so hard at times.


    Brody and Melissa both do not want to be in a relationship but it seems that they can’t keep their hands of each other. Just when their relationship starts off it is interfered by misunderstandings from their past. I could not turn my e-reader fast enough to see how they will get their happily after.


    There was some yummy sexual tension. The bickering between Brody and Melissa usually leaves them in a heated moment. And lets just say they really need to stay away from doors during these moments.


    If you are looking for a fun plot, HOT smexing, LOL moments with a opposite attract couple that are meant to be together then this book is it.

    Hot firemen, cute romance

    I really enjoyed this cute but spicy romance. Melissa is a news producer who thinks her ideal man is going to be someone in the arts or a cultural profession. Harry is a FD Captain who thinks Melissa is a refreshing change from his ex-wife who chewed him up and spit him out. They meet when Melissa's grandmother buys a bachelor fireman at a charity auction, an auction where Melissa meets Harry and blows him off. Through a mix up in communication Melissa and Harry end up on the date instead of the purchased bachelor. There is a strong attraction between the two of them but Melissa is not sure what she really wants. Harry has to patiently prove that he is the guy for Melissa.
    I liked the fact that Melissa gives Harry a hard time about going out with him, even though he is hunky, nice, and interested. The relationship starts out as a friendship and progresses realistically. Once they get together, wow, it is pretty amazing. There are some complications- snarky ambitious co-workers, trust issues, misunderstandings, but they communicate after a near tragedy and the relationship gets worked out. There are two other storylines going through the book, one involving Melissa's father who has a history of alcohol abuse and one about a young foster child in an abusive situation. The foster child storyline is not as integrated into the book as I would have preferred, but the storyline about Melissa's dad is well done and believable.
    I had not read this author before and I see that there are additional books planned about the Bachelor Fireman. I think it will be a successful series.

    Posted on Romancing the Books blog/ Reviewed by Ashleigh/ Review

    Posted on Romancing the Books blog/ Reviewed by Ashleigh/ Review Copy from Personal Collection/ This is crazy! Bidding on a man just based on his looks and not on anything important. This train of thought for Melissa McGuire was just the tip of the ice berg when she is tricked by her grandmother to go to a bachelor’s auction to find a new man. These aren’t the type of men that get under Melissa’s skin, even if they all are built and handsome and heroic and…and…and…not her type at all! Running from the auction seemed like a good idea at the time, until she has to be rescued by someone who makes her blood boil and heart skip a beat. Not knowing his name is a good thing, until he shows up at her door the next day. Melissa is about the get a crash course on what makes her melt, and it happens to be a man with gray eyes and a depth that she didn’t expect at all.

    Captain Harry Brody didn’t sign up to do the bachelor auction, but knew that it was good for a charity so having his men in there was the next best thing. Being at the auditorium that night was only a fluke. Just being a good captain is what he kept telling himself. But one look at the dark haired beauty with the glasses and Brody is hooked. Knowing who she is only the first step. Knocking her socks off forever is the end goal. Will Brody’s past crashing into his present ruin his chances with Melissa or will he be able to put out this fire before it becomes an inferno?

    What a great starter to an awesome series! The story of Brody and Melissa was not only suspenseful but full of humor and great sex as well. Jennifer Bernard has come out of the publishing gate at a sprinting pace and with books like this there doesn’t seem to be an end in sight for her. I can’t wait to see what else she comes up with when it comes to these sexy fireman and the women that love them!

    Fun Read

    The beginning seemed very familiar to me (grandmother drags granddaughter to a bachelor auciton to bid on someone for her, granddaughter is not thrilled), but this then had a nice twise. It's a good, cute story and very well written. I look forward to her next book very soon.

    Surprised at the hi ratings. The first half was fun, but it went down pretty quick when the ex-wife showed up, then the hero was nothing but a wimp and then the story just got too silly. delete.
