Review: Melting Point by Kate Meader

Title: Melting Point

Author: Kate Meader

Synopsis:

Things are heating up at Engine Co. 6 in this original e-novella from Kate Meader’s sizzling Hot in Chicago series! Superhot playboy firefighter Gage Simpson has one particular man on his mind: Brady Smith, a recalcitrant, moody chef who makes Gage melt from the inside out. Features a sexy sneak preview of Playing with Fire!

Firefighter Gage Simpson has it all: the job of his dreams, the family of his heart, and no shortage of hot guys lining up to share his bed. “Fun and easy” is his motto—and it’s kept him sunny through a painful upbringing and steered him away from trouble. But when trouble comes knocking in the form of a sexy, scarred, tattooed chef with a harrowing past and zero communication skills, Gage can’t help but be drawn to the flame.

Brady Smith isn’t fun. And easy isn’t in his vocabulary. When cocky Gage swaggers into his restaurant kitchen, the former Marine-turned-five-star-chef is blindsided by the firefighter’s beauty. Then confused that this golden guy with the sparkling blue eyes and the body of a god might be interested in him. As desire flares and temperatures rise, Gage and Brady will have to figure out if the heat between them is just a temporary flash—or the beginning of something real.

***MY REVIEW***

4 out of 5 stars

Gage Simpson was one of the highlights for me in the first book in this series and I am super happy that he got his own story even if it is just a novella. This short and steamy novella was really steamy and intense and I loved every single word of this novella. My heart broke for both Gage and Brady at the beginning of their story because of what Gage had to deal with growing up with a crazy, homophobic mother and what Brady had to survived during his time in the Marines, but it made the happiness and peace they found and fought for together all the more gratifying.

Overall, I loved this nice and quick novella. It was a great addition to the Hot in Chicago and has succeeded in not only satisfying my need for a book about Gage but has also increased my excitement for what's to come for the remaining Dempseys.
