Playing with fire - Kate Meader

As the only female firefighter at Engine Co. 6, Alexandra Dempsey gets it from all sides: the male Mr. Mayor has other ideas... coworkers who think she can't do the job, the wives and girlfriends who see her as a threat to their firefighter men, and her overprotective foster brothers who want to shelter their baby sister at all costs. So when she single-handedly saves the life of Eli Cooper, Chicago's devastatingly handsome mayor, she assumes the respect she's longed for will finally come her way. But it seems

Eli Cooper's mayoral ratings are plummeting, his chances at reelection dead in the water. When a sexy, curvaceous firefighter gives him the kiss of life, she does more than bring him back to the land of the living--she also breathes vitality into his campaign. Riding the wave of their feel-good story might prop up Eli's flagging political fortunes, but the sizzling attraction between them can go nowhere; he's her boss, and there are rules that must be obeyed. But you know what they say about rules: they're made to be broken... 

My thoughts:
Oh this was a hot one! And I really felt the chemistry between these two, it sizzled off the pages.

Alexandra is a firefighter, she has lots of foster brothers, and she is a serial dater. She does want to find the one, but men suck. She also has a mouth on her and says what she thinks. When she meets Eli, sparks fly. She mouths off and riles him up.

Eli is the mayor if Chicago, and he does have a thing for her. But mostly he likes to argue with her and their arguing is the best. It really shows the chemistry. I was all just get down and dirty at once!

There will be some drama, that is obvious from, well you will see. But hey I also know it will blow over soon and they will live happily ever after. Until then it was fun to see them fall in love, when they both believed this would blow over.

I read it in one sitting.

    1. No, just knowing all the issues Chicago has it made me laugh thinking of the mayor as a romance hero character ;-)
