Kate MeaderÔÇÖs blazing Hot in Chicago firefighter series has ÔÇ£everything you want in a romanceÔÇØ (RT Book Reviews, Top Pick)! The flames of desire burn out of control in this sexy third novel when ex-lovers unexpectedly reunite for a sizzling affair that will have the director yelling, ÔÇ£Quiet on the set!ÔÇØ
Actor Molly Cade, AmericaÔÇÖs fallen sweetheart, finally has her shot at a Hollywood comeback with a dramatic new role as a tough-as-nails firefighter that promises to propel her back to the big time and restore her self-respect.
Wyatt Fox, resident daredevil at Engine Co. 6, needs a low-key job to keep him busy while he recovers from his latest rescue stunt. Consulting on a local movie shoot should add just enough spark to his day. Especially when in struts Molly Cade: the woman who worked his heart over good, and then left him in the Windy City dust.
Their story is straight out of a script: irrepressible, spunky heroine meets taciturn, smoldering hero. But these two refuse to be typecast, and when the embers of an old love are stoked, someone is bound to get burnedÔÇª
The Hot in Chicago series is simply one of my favorite. With each one, itÔÇÖs reconfirmed that Kate Meader writes authentic characters, sexy love connections, and family bonds that go beyond blood. In this case we get to know the brooding Wyatt and his role in the Dempsey clan. Also, we meet Molly Cade (aka. Hollywood) who comes storming back into Wyatt’s life at full speed.
This book opens with a bang – a fun and incredibly sexy situation that sets the tone & the connection between Molly and Wyatt. Flash forward five years later, Molly is intent on finding ot more about AlexÔÇÖs brush with the law, the inspiration for her latest film, and with the drama ridden Dempsey clan. Her motives for this are pretty clear but she never bargained for a run in with Wyatt. Molly comes with baggage Hollywood style; a conniving ex, paparazzi and stalkers. This is completely at odds with WyattÔÇÖs reserved and private nature, but lordy these two have a steamy connection. They type thisÔÇÖ enough to build towards something more.
One of the key things I love about KateÔÇÖs writing, and this story line, is the Dempsey family bond and their dynamics. They are all so very protective of each other but with that sometimes comes the expectation of full disclosure and Wyatts a bit on the secretive side. This plays out when Wyatt introduces a young girl named Roni to the family. I wonÔÇÖt go into her connection with the family but her entrance into their lives touches each of them very distinctly.
But itÔÇÖs Wyatt and his beard that make this a fun, sexy and exciting read. His charm is both in your face and subtle and his alpha tendencies, well , that are just HOT. HeÔÇÖs truly met the perfect match in Molly. They are both stubborn which causes no end of drama. But these two know how to bridge the gap.
With each book I find myself wanting more and more to be in the ÔÇ£circleÔÇØ, to disappear into the pages where Engine Co . 6 employs the Dempsey clan. Sparking The Fire is yet another 5 Star addition to this series and recommendation.
~Review by Cyndi
Praise for Sparking the Fire, Book 3:
ÔÇ£Can a firefighter and a movie star really make it work? Meader (Rekindle the Flame, 2015) immerses you in WyattÔÇÖs tight-knit family of foster siblings that sheÔÇÖs built throughout the Hot in Chicago series, and readers will feel like part of the family in no time. Her descriptions of Chicago will leave fans wanting to travel to the Windy City and fall in love with their own firefighters.ÔÇØ
