Playing with Fire

Hot in Chicago, #2

Eli is such a muscle head. I tried so hard but I really didn’t like him. His views and attitude toward women...this story might as well be taken in the 50's. Alex is a great firefighter who loves her job and is being overshadowed by Eli. I don't know what his problem is besides the obvious but he was gunning for her. Saying things like "She needs to be taken care of" and "She needs somebody to keep her in line" made me want to punch him. He may be the mayor but he has no control over what Alex does or says.

I felt bad for Alex, all she's trying to do is her job and Eli blocks her every time. His view that women don't make great fire excuse me what? Alex is just as good as anyone on her team and she has heart. He really needed a wakeup call. Just because you can't control what someone does doesn't mean you try to block them at every turn and silence them. If I was Alex, mayor or not, Eli would have gotten a kick that would make sure the family line ended with him.

From popular romance author Kate Meader comes the second novel in Hot in Chicago, a brand-new, sizzling series that follows a group of firefighting foster siblings and their blazing hot love interests!

As the only female firefighter at Engine Co. 6, Alexandra Dempsey gets it from all sides: the male 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 Mr. Mayor has other ideas…

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…
