Review: Flirting with Fire by Kate Meader

Title: Flirting with Fire

Author: Kate Meader


The first installment in Hot in Chicago, a brand-new, sizzling series from Kate Meader that follows a group of firefighting foster siblings and their blazing hot love interests!

Savvy PR guru Kinsey Taylor has always defined herself by her career, not her gender. That is, until she moved from San Francisco to Chicago to be with her fiancĂ© who thought she wasn’t taking her “job” of supporting him in his high-powered career seriously enough—and promptly dumped her for a more supportive and “feminine” nurse. Now, as the new assistant press secretary to Chicago’s dynamic mayor, she’s determined to keep her eye on the prize: no time to feel inferior because she’s a strong, kick-ass woman, and certainly no time for men.

But that all changes when she meets Luke Almeida, a firefighter as searingly sexy as he is quick-tempered. He’s also the second oldest of the Firefightin’ Dempseys, a family of foster siblings who have committed their lives to the service—if Luke’s antics don’t get him fired first. When Luke goes one step too far and gets into a bar brawl with the Chicago Police Department, Kinsey marches into Luke’s firehouse and lays down the law on orders from the mayor. But at Engine Co. 6, Luke Almeida is the law. And he’s not about to let Kinsey make the rules.


5 out of 5 stars

Flirting with Fire is a book that has been on my radar since before it was released, but for some reason I kept putting off buying it. Now thanks to a great sale, I finally bought it and read it and it really was an awesome, sizzling romance. I thoroughly enjoyed reading about Luke and Kinsey and the rest of the Dempseys.

Luke and Kinsey were both extremely well-developed characters that I couldn't help but root for. Luke was my favorite kind of hero. Hot and loyal. And Kinsey was such a kick-ass character in her own right. The way she dealt with Luke and other situations that were thrown her way had me applauding her awesomeness many times.

However, as much as I loved Luke and Kinsey the best part of this book truly were Luke's foster siblings and the love and loyalty that they felt for each other even though they weren't blood related. All the scenes in which they were joking around or looking out for each other really did it for me and I might have shed some sappy, happy tears.

This book had all the fixings of a satisfying romance: relatable characters, an exciting plot, and a sizzling romance. I loved this book so much and am looking forward to seeing what Kate Meader has in store for these characters next.
