Book Review - Hot Response (Boston Fire) by Shannon Stacey

ABOUT THE BOOK


The men of Boston Fire are back and hotter than ever! Don’t miss this brand-new novel from New York Times bestselling author Shannon Stacey. 

Gavin Boudreau lives for the job, but he also believes in “work hard, play harder.” As the youngest guy in Ladder 37, he figures he’s got plenty of time before settling down becomes a priority. Soft, pretty women who aren’t looking for promises are exactly his type, and he’s comfortable with that. Working with a gorgeous EMT isn’t going to change who he is. 

The last thing Cait Tasker needs in her personal life is a firefighter whose challenges on-scene have been a thorn in her side from minute one. Her plate’s too full for a man anyway. Back in her childhood home to help her family cope with an unexpected tragedy, she’s got enough to handle without throwing a hot, testosterone-laden fireman into the mix. 

As long days on the job lead to long nights together, Gavin and Cait will discover how far temptation can take them—and what happens when the one you thought was all wrong for you turns out to be the person you can’t live without.

REVIEW

I love Shannon Stacey's Chicago Fire series and was surprised how much I loved this story that is completely outside of the Kincade family.  The Boston firefighter setting that she has created makes for a great backdrop to each of these love stories in the series and for fans of the series to this point don't worry because the Kincade family is still there and the family bar is still a central part of the story.  Gavin and Cait have the feel of a normal couple that I could easily relate to.  The attraction is there from the beginning but the romance is slow and builds at the perfect pace.  Anyone who loves books with real characters and real stories will love this book.


OVERALL RATING - 5 STARS!
MATURITY RATING - 18+ a little steamy

Shannon Stacey, a New York Times and USA Today bestselling author, lives with her husband and two sons in New England, where her two favorite activities are writing stories of happily-ever-after and riding her four-wheeler.

She prefers writing to laundry, however, and considers herself lucky she got to be an author when she grew up.
