Kate Meader’s blazing Hot in Chicago firefighter series has “everything you want in a romance” (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, “Quiet on the set!”
Actor Molly Cade, America’s 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 burned…
Erin: Ohhhhh, man, I am so so sad to see this fabulous series come to an end! Kate Meader’s Hot in Chicago series has become a favorite of mine, and Sparking the Fire is the perfect send-off. All of the books in the series have been so much fun. Full of family and love and drama and such fantastic and witty banter that they’re all going to remain on my re-read list for a long time to come. Especially Melting Point, because hello? Gage and Brady. *sigh* I love them so much. But I digress and now onto Wyatt Fox and Molly Cade’s entertaining book!
If you’ve read the other books in the series—and omg if you haven’t fix that IMMEDIATELY—then like me, you’ve been waiting for what seems like forever for Wyatt’s story. Of all the brothers, he’s been the most enigmatic and I’ve been dying to get to know him better. He most assuredly did NOT disappoint. Stoic and quiet, broody and fierce this guy pushed every single one of my buttons. Rabidly protective of his family of adopted brothers and sisters, he along with older brother Luke have been the head of the family since the death of their adoptive father, Sean Dempsey. He’s also been harboring a secret, keeping it from his tight knit family. After an injury while on duty has him sidelined from firefighting, he gets assigned as a consultant on a film. One which happens to be produced by none other than Molly Cade. Molly Cade whom he had a torrid week long affair with five years ago. Molly Cade who is a world famous actress now, and whom Wyatt hasn’t been able to forget.
These two. I have to admit it took me a bit to warm up to Molly. Of all the women in the series, she’s my least favorite, but that doesn’t mean she’s not a perfect match for gruff and growly Wyatt. Because she is. The chemistry between these two sizzles from the very first page and when they encounter one another for the first time in five years, nothing much has changed. Well, they both have because life hasn’t been a bed of roses for either of them since they parted ways, but that connection flares to life from the get go. Kate Meader’s signature sarcasm and humor is well displayed between these two, and when they flirt? Or have sexy time? Oh boy, have a cold drink of water handy to cool off because, whoa.
“Every time, Mol,” he murmured, and she heard the awe in it. “Every time.”
As ever, he took it slow, and she studied his face, loving how expressive he became while he was lodged so deep she felt him all the way to her heart. In these charged moments of ecstasy, Wyatt Fox’s truth shone bright. Unadorned, uncompromising, honest-to-God passion.
She grabbed his ass and dug her nails into his steely flesh, needing to see the emotion it produced. His eyes locked on hers. Terrifying. Relentless. And more: a sweet possession mixed with unexpected affection.
“That’s right, baby. Scratch me up. Make your mark. I wanna look at my body later and know who I belong to.”
Sweet mother, that’s hot, yes??
What seriously made this book is the family as a whole. All the siblings make an appearance in this book it was so great to see them all … and get introduced to a new member! Their family dynamic is something damn special. I loved seeing the softer side to Molly, one that only Wyatt and his family seem to be able to bring out. This definitely earned her points in my book. She’s flirty and funny with Gage, down to earth with Alex and Kinsey, and then with Wyatt, you can see her let her walls down and be the girl that captured Wyatt’s attention all those years ago.
Sparking the Fire, like all the preceding books, is full of sexy fun, sweet moments, family drama, lots of humor and love, and is captivating from beginning to end. Do yourselves a favor people, and make sure to read all the books in this series. It’s one you definitely don’t want to miss!
