Bachelor Firemen of San Gabriel . . .

But there's even more Sabina isn't telling him. Before dedicating herself to battling blazes, Sabina led a very different life, one that made her famous. The last thing she wants is to have her secret exposed. The papers, bloggers, and TV gossips will have a field day with that—expecially when they sense the obvious sexual heat between Sabina and Chief Roman, who's torn between firing her . . . and falling in love with her!

Jennifer Bernard knows how to deliver sexy, romantic, emotional stories, and Sex and the Single Fireman, the third installment of the Bachelor Firemen of San Gabriel series is all that and more! One of the things I most love about this author is how well she tells a story. They're easy to read, yet compelling, and pull you in right from the start. Her characters are people we come to care about because even though they're amazing, they're also human. They the kinds of people you live next door to, and they're like the odd cousin that everyone wonders about. They're the people you meet in the grocery story and the friends you wish you had... they're people who draw you in and make you love them, every single time. Sabina is the "Bachelor" fireman in this book and Chief Rick Roman is a man who's trying to build a life for he and his son after losing his wife in the 9/11 attacks. That right there got my attention because we've all heard the tales of the real men and women who gave their all that day, and stories like this - stories of the ones left behind - never cease to touch me deeply. Whether it's only mentioned briefly or the center of the story; whether it happened yesterday or eleven and a half years ago, it gets to me. Every single time. Watching Sabina and Roman's relationship grow from lust to love was heartwarming - and burn up the pages sexy. Start to finish, through the good and the bad, I couldn't get enough of them and that thirteen year old Roman-in-training, Luke. My thanks to Avon Books for providing me with a copy of this story in exchange for an honest review.

Reviewed for Read Your Writes Book Reviews Sex and the Single Fireman is the third book in the Bachelor Fireman series. I didn't read the first two books in the series and had no problem reading this book. I did, however, read the novella and was immediately sold on Jennifer as a writer. Most of the characters in the book are likeable, if not loveable. Sex and the Single Fireman did not disappoint. Sabina Jones and Rick Roman first meet under unusual circumstances. Another chance meeting leads them to contemplate a one night stand. Well, the one night stand doesn't actually take place, which is a good thing, since it turns out that Rick is Sabina's new boss. Rick Roman uproots his life in New York for his thirteen-year-old son, Luke. They move from New York to San Gabriel, CA so Luke can play baseball year around. Rick is a good guy with a past no one wants to have. Like many others, he lost the love his life, his wife, Maureen on 9/11. She was also a firefighter and died when the towers collapsed. Sabina Jones is a strong, independent woman who loves fighting fires. She's also trying to hide from her past. But sometimes, no matter how hard you try, the past comes back and bites you in the butt, when you least expect it. In Sabina's case, her mother wants to put her back in the spotlight. Neither Rick nor Sabina are looking for love, but that's one of the best parts about a romance book. You gotta love watching the characters fight against something you already know is a losing battle. And boy, when that battle is lost, the aftermath turns out to be nothing but hot. Sex and the Single Fireman is a really good story with multiple storylines going on. You will get drawn into a story that's tragic and touching at the same time. This is a story of love and forgiveness. FYI - The San Gabriel Fire Station 1 curse is STILL alive and well. Source: Edelweiss

This is the third book in the Bachelor Firemen of San Gabriel series by Jennifer Bernard. This story follows one of the two women firefighters on the force, Sabina Jones or Two as the firemen call her. This story starts during Thanksgiving, with Sabina going to Reno, as is her usual Thanksgiving tradition. On the way there, she encounters Rick "Rock" Roman. First by trading insults in their cars, as he is trying to speak on the phone, and she is busy blaring rock music. And next when they end up seated together at dinner. They nearly have a one night stand, but Sabina comes to her senses at the last minute and walks away. Next they meet when he is introduced as Battalion Chief, Section Commander in charge of Training Section and Sabina is in line up. The sparks being to fly as they each fight their attraction to each other. Battalion Chief Roman is very tough and by the book. He moved to California to support his son, Luke by letting him play year round baseball. There are also some tough memories for him in New York, as his wife and fellow firefighter was killed on 9/11 in the tower collapse. At first the guys at San Gabriel firehouse dislike Roman. Even when Chief Brody stops by to give Roman a talk, Roman blows him off. If it weren't for the interactions with Luke, I probably would have really dislike Roman to begin with. It doesn't help that that Chief Renteria is constantly on Roman about making sure that there is no media about the Bachelor Curse. Needless to say, when Sabina's secret gets out, the media circus begins and leaves Roman fighting a losing battle.  Sabina had some major issues and secrets in this book. We find out that she is actually a former child star of a very popular tv series and has done everything in her power to stay hidden from the press. It helps (and hurts) that her and her movie star mother have been estranged for the past 13 years. But all that ends, when her mother shows up at the firehouse pitching a reunion show. There were many, many issues for these two to over come on their way to a happily ever after. The theme of forgiveness and acceptance continues to play a large part in the series. This book focused much more on the San Gabriel Bachelor Curse than the previous book. There were some cameo appearances from Captain Brody and Melissa and Ryan and Katie, but the crew of the firehouse were front and center in this book. I really enjoy the guys and can't wait to find out which one's story is next.  I gave this book 4 stars on Goodreads. The author took would could have been a very big cliche with the "former child star", and kept it about real life issues. Like parent/child communication and expectations.

Sex and the single fireman was an exceptionally well written story with multiple plot elements and very likeable characters.  I thoroughly enjoyed reading this book. Roman married is widowed after losing his wife, NY firefighter Maureen, in the 9/11 tragedy.  He is left to be the father of their 13 year old son Luke.  He dedicates his life to Luke and decides to honor Luke's wish to live ""where he can play baseball all year"" by moving to San Gabriel, CA. Sabina is fleeing San Gabriel and another lonely Thanksgiving, and encounters Roman on the highway.  He asks her to turn her music down and in an act of defiance she turns it up.    They irk each other and end up with traffic fines.  They bump into each other at a restaurant and the chemistry is more than they can handle.  They decide on a one night stand but Sabina changes her mind and leaves a note ""sorry"" under his door. She returns to work to learn that Roman  is her new boss.  The fireworks began and through the mix of bar room brawls, movie star mothers, sizzling sex you fall in love with these characters and wait with baited breath as they fight dangerous fires and rescue runaway teens.  The author tackles the grief, pain, loss, and isolation faced by those touched by the 9/11 tragedy.  She does equal justice to the complex relationship between mothers and daughters.  She writes about how the character's pasts and draws a line between past events and present actions.  The story expands to the epiphany that only through releasing past hurts and forgiving offenses are the characters able to move forward.  She is able to do this while weaving a tale that keeps the reader uplifted and unfolds for the reader as if you were the character.  Indeed it did cause me to reflect on my own life or close family/friends that allow the past to get in the way of living in the present and moving forward to the future. The book entertained, enlightened, and educated me.  I would definitely recommend reading this book. Reviewed by Michelle for Cocktails and Books.
