From New York Times bestselling author SHANNON STACEY
Meet the tough, dedicated men of BOSTON FIRE—and the women who turn their lives upside down
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.

The enjoyable latest installment of Stacey's contemporary Boston Fire series (after Fully Ignited) combines blazing passion and a certain sweetness. Hunky firefighter Gavin Boudreau can't figure out why EMT Cait Tasker seems to dislike him; he admires her feisty attitude and unshakable competence. Cait's just as interested in Gavin, but she thinks he sees her as undateable because he refers to her as "ma'am." Once they connect while preparing to deliver a baby in an apartment hallway their explosive chemistry forces them both to put aside their limiting beliefs about each other and give in to delicious lust. Things progress well until Gavin invites Cait to move in with him; Cait's twice-widowed mother and her teenage half-brother seem to be unable to function without her living with them. Stacey soon has her appealing hero and heroine stewing in their own private pain and searching for the path to happiness. This is a sweet treat that will keep series fans very happy. \n
