Synopsis

When Jamie Rutherford takes a temporary assignment as lieutenant of Boston Fire's Engine 59, she doesn't anticipate any problems. She's been in the fire service for a long time and, even though she's fairly new to Boston, she knows how to make any firehouse her home. What she's not prepared for is her reaction to firefighter Scott Kincaid.

Scott is looking for a wife. It's been a fun ride as a single guy, but he's tired of being the third wheel, and nearly losing his brother-in-law finally made him realize just how much he wants a family of his own. When the new guy at the firehouse turns out to be a capable, confident and very attractive woman, his plan is completely derailed.

Hooking up with a fellow firefighter has never been part of Jamie's plan, but she's tempted by Scott—even though getting involved with him could tarnish the reputation she's worked so hard for. And Scott can't stop thinking about Jamie, despite the fact that she's his superior and not sticking around. Chemistry can crush the best-laid plans, though, and while Jamie and Scott might not be each other's future…there's no resisting the right now.

    Fantastic

    My favorite of the series! Scott Kincaid has been a great character throughout all three books and he takes center stage in this one. Seeing all his buddies and sister happy and in love has Scott questioning his player lifestyle. Deciding it's time to make some changes he's decided to take a break from dating hoping to find the one woman who can touch his heart. That is until the LT's temporary replacement shows up. A female in the firehouse is a huge change. A female in the firehouse that rings all his bells - impossible. Jamie Rutherford knows how hard it is to step into a new house and get the respect of the other firefighters. This job is no different from the others. Well maybe the attraction she feels toward Scott Kincaid is different but she can't - no won't - let it interfere with her job! Staying here isn't an option and who knows where she'll end up next. Starting something that could ruin her reputation would just be crazy, right??? I loved this book and would definitely recommend it and the entire series to everyone.

    Where there is smoke

    This is the 3rd book in the Boston Fire series. This book can be read as a standalone novel. For reader enjoyment and understanding, I recommend reading this series in order. The later books can be a spoiler for earlier stories, if you read them out of order. Jamie comes to a new house as a temporary supervisor. She cannot help but fall for Scott right away. He is everything she has ever looked for in a man. Just one small problem. She is his supervisor, and it is not allowed. Scott is in a place where he is ready to settle down. He is already looking and not finding anyone who fits what he wants for his future wife. Then he meets the most amazing woman, and she is just out of his reach. This is an amazing series and this book is right on! I love the characters and the return of some of my favorites! I was totally in love with the banter, the heat, and the pace. This is a great read. ***This ARC copy was given by Netgalley and its publisher in exchange for an honest review.

    Sexy and entertaining firefighter romance!

    I really enjoyed this story, and I have to say that it's my favourite of the series (to date, because I'm hoping to see more of the men of this firehouse!). It's really easy to get wrapped up in the family dynamics - the Kincaid's each have their own personality quirks but at heart they are a loving family and it shows in their interactions with each other. Scott, as the younger brother (he's 27, though it doesn't stop his older sisters from reminding him where he fits in the family), values his sisters' opinions (whether he agrees with them or not) and discovers that it's not so easy to hide the attraction he feels towards Jamie from them, or his best friend Aidan. But he's keeping mum about it, as he respects Jamie's position at the firehouse and her desire to keep their relationship away from work. He just comes across as a really nice, friendly, dependable guy (definitely hero material!). He's got lots of friends, a good job, and a supportive family. Jamie's situation is a little more challenging. She's away from home, and her best friend lives across the city, so she doesn't have too many friends where she is. As a fire captain she's had her share of issues being a female in a male dominated job, and she's learned to deal with anything that arises quickly and efficiently. I really enjoyed seeing her interactions with the crew and how she was able to do her job and maintain that position of respect. And I liked that she didn't outright reject having a short term affair with Scott (on the condition that it could not be allowed to interfere with their work). She's comfortable with her sexuality and her desires and knows that there's no reason that she can't have a personal life to go with the professional one. Together, the two of them definitely have chemistry and there are some steamy love scenes that connect the two of them both physically and emotionally. And therein lies the problem of course - the development of an emotional connection that goes beyond friendship into relationship territory. Only, neither of them wants to admit what's really happening between them. The conflict is two-fold. On the one hand, it's their working relationship (boss and subordinate) that is at issue, with both of them knowing that there will be repercussions if the truth comes out. Fortunately, this isn't dwelt on relentlessly - it's just a fact that they are both aware of, and they do a really good job (at least until later in the story) of keeping their feelings from interfering with their professional relationship. So while on the surface the 'forbidden' workplace romance is a source of potential problems, it's their long term goals that cause the more damaging conflict. Jamie is not the kind of wife that Scott is looking for. No matter how much he'd like to deny it, he knows that he already risks his life in his career every day - and he is not looking for a wife who risks her life equally. Having lost his mother at a young age, he wants a woman who will be there for their kids should something happen to him, and not vice versa. This kind of conflict is more serious, because at its heart it will require a change of thinking, and compromises that not everyone would be willing to commit to. I felt for Scott and for Jamie in this situation, where their careers just might be a wall that's too big to climb over. When Jamie's time at the fire hall is up and Danny is ready to return to work , they have to deal with the heart of that problem or it will ruin any chance they have of being together. Well, since this is a romance with a happy ever after ending, we know that all will end well as it should - but it's the path to that end that makes this such a delightful and entertaining story. Sure, there's some angst, but overall it's not the kind that will leave you sobbing - more the 'heavy sigh' and then the big smile when it all gets worked out in the end. As expected, the scenes between the crew, the action of the calls they go on and the moments spent relaxing and getting ready for Aidan and Lydia's wedding (yay!) are well written and combined with the sexy romance give you an overall story that really hit the mark for me. 5 stars.

    Loved it!

    I love this series. The author has created a romance set in a Boston firehouse that feels real. In this novel, Jamie is brought in as a temporary relief lieutenant. She meets all the guys, but feels a pull towards Scott. As she is his supervisor, she can't act on the attraction.....but Scott feels is too and he doesn't feel such constraints against pursuing Jamie. What follows is an engaging romance that accurately captures some of the realism of emergency services. For those who question some of the antics, they are actually toned down considerably in the book. If you are looking for a fun romance that will keep you hooked, you have found it in this novel.
