Overview

He's a fire chief who curses out the mayor at every turn. She's the mayor who needs him in a crisis.

He's a line firefighter attracted to the mayor's daughter. She's a woman who wants nothing to do with a man like him.

Chief Chase Talbot has butted heads with Mayor Vanessa Jordan since she was elected to office two years ago. And since he's the head of the fire department, she's his boss. Still, he takes no grief from her. But after a fire involving her parents, Vanessa turns to Chase for help. When the situation calms down, both are unable to get their relationship back to what it was. Throw in troubled teens, estrangement from family, a possible arson and you get a complex, gripping plotline and an emotional and scintillating love story.

Interweaved with Chase and Vanessa's lives is Joe Santori, the young, brash and immature firefighter of book one. Now Joe is a wiser, more settled lieutenant running his own crew. When Holly Michaels, a fourth grade teacher, and the mayor's daughter, moves into the condo next to his, she intrigues him. But Holly doesn't want to get involved: Joe is worldly, gorgeous and way out of her league. The problem is, he doesn't think so. These young people go on a rollercoaster ride of emotional highs and lows, but even after they give into their passion, the old Joe resurfaces and Holly's having none of it.

It comes as a shock to both couples that contrary to what each thought, they don't have all they need!

Cameo appearances of readers' favorite firefighters from Hidden Cove, as well as Shay's trademark tense and nail-biting rescue scenes, sizzling sexual encounters, and emotions exploding on every page, this book will pull you in and not let go until the characters find their way back to each other.

If you haven't read the first four books of The Rockford Fire Department, be sure to grab FEEL THE HEAT, RISKING IT ALL, CODE OF HONOR and NEVER FAR AWAY, all intense firefighter romance books.

*** NEW YORK TIMES bestselling author Kathryn Shay spent five years riding fire trucks with a large city fire department, eating in their firehouses and interviewing hundreds of America's Bravest.

I love this story by Kathryn Shay! It is full of suspense, drama, alpha heroes and strong and independent heroines. Joe Santori is a lieutenant at Truck 8 and meets Holly Michaels at a fire that involved her grandparents and their home. Whereas she is thankful that they had someone like Joe to get them safely out of the fire Holly is leery of men like him so she tries to keep him as only her friend and neighbor, but soon finds herself unable to deny the attraction that is growing between them. Chase Talbot is a chief with the fire department raising his granddaughters alone since his son passed away and their mother is no longer in their lives. He works daily with the mayor Vanessa Jordan and after months of fighting like cats and dogs they've developed an attraction to each other that is highly inappropriate which they are having difficulty ignoring. I was given an ARC from the author/publisher. All conclusions are mine and mine alone.

This is the 5th book in this series and I have not read all of them but had no problem with following the story. We also get to stories in one here, which is awesome! We have the more mature couple that comes with plenty of baggage and the young love not sure what they are really looking for or if they're ready to settle down. Both stories are relatable and intertwined. A great story of trust, forgiveness, second chances and knowing there are no promises for tomorrow. Ms. Shay does an amazing job with her main characters, as well as the interactions and dialogue with the other characters in her stories. Definitely recommend and need to go back and read the books I've missed in this series! I received a complimentary ebook and am voluntarily leaving my honest review.

This was actually pretty sweet deal. You get two romances in one book. Chase and Vanessa, the Fire Chief and Mayor; then Joe and Holly, the Fire Lt. and the Mayor's daughter. There are so many storylines going on in this book, it should really be confusing. The book is so well written and Kathryn Shay has communicated with such clarity that it is easy to follow each path, even when they intersect. I liked Chase and the granddaughters, who happened to live with him. I really didn't like Vanessa at the beginning and was surprised when she grew on me. Joe and Holly took turns with me liking and disliking each of them. At times, he wasn't the most adult or likeable person, and Holly had a number of moments of being wishy washy. There was romance, sexiness, action, suspense, mystery, intrigue, and secrets. A lot crushed into this book to make it enjoyable. I didn't put it down until I was done, so I ended up reading into the wee hours of the morning with no regrets. I voluntarily read and reviewed the Advanced Reader Copy of this book.

ALL I NEED by Kathryn Shay. Rockford # 5 Chief Chase after another fire, tired and needed solitude, gets called from the mayor Vanessa. She’s out of town, thank goodness but why calling, they mix like oil and water. Her 10% cut affecting his department as well as others in town didn’t set well. Joe his shift has ended when a pink.damsel in distress comes worried about grandparents. Didn’t want her in an accident so he drives her to hospital, he’d get a ribbing, from crew. Her name is Holly estranged from her mother, the mayor. We have a combustible situations of people drawn together, that makes another great story. Her books and the details that go into them, is always great. You are there observing them, and sometimes having to chuckle Like the banters that go on between the Chief and Mayor. Delightful, great plot, characters, great series. Given ARC for my voluntary review and my honest opinion.

This is the fifth book of this series, and even though I had not read all the stories in the series, it was easy to follow the plot. The main story belongs to Vanessa Jordan, Rockford’s mayor, and Chase Talbot, Fire Chief of the town. He is also the guardian of his two granddaughters after the death of his son. Chase and Vanessa seem to be constant adversaries because of the mayor’s cuts and way of running the town, though as time goes on, the attraction intensifies. Their lives are complicated, and the suspense and other situations in the story , make the storyline very engaging. There is also a sub-plot with a younger couple. That one belongs to Holly Jordan, the mayor’s daughter and elementary school teacher, and Fire LT Joe Santori. Not only are the characters and the plot complex, but the Ms Shay shows us that life is not black and white and that humans are imperfect individuals who make mistakes. It’s how those mistakes are handled and what we learn from them, that really matters. Another story by this talented author you will enjoy. I voluntarily read this copy. The opinions expressed are solely my own.

I enjoyed the storyline and setting. Two couples overcome much to eventually be together. The Fire Chief has issues with the new Mayor. He stands up for his crews, she has the townspeople and taxes on her mind. Can they come to terms? He's a southern gentleman and when a tragedy happens will he let this upbringing overcome his professional differences? Vanessa made a big mistake and has paid dearly. Is there a way to overcome the consequences? I enjoyed the older characters finding love. Still, for those who prefer a younger couple, the author has provided that as well. The Mayor's estranged daughter is helped by one of the chief's best men, leading to an attraction. Still, they are younger and have serious trust issues from previous relationships. Joe and Holly tend to give up on each other too quickly for me, however, they do find a way back to each other. On the path to that relationship, old wounds are healed and families reunited. Always a good read. Again the storyline was engaging, however, with the POV of all four characters and traveling from the past to the present it tended to be a little choppy for my taste.
