Sex and the Single Fireman: Sexy Surprises Will Have You Chasing Fire Trucks


A Bachelor Firemen Novel
By Jennifer Bernard
Avon/Harpercollins (January 29, 2013)
E-book, Mass Market paperback 389 pages

The toughest captain on the East Coast, single father Rick Roman has come thousands of miles to San Gabriel to put an end to the "Bachelor Firemen" media hype. But when a stunning woman he nearly hooked up with in Reno turns out to be a firefighter from his new station, Roman realizes it's going to be tough keeping the tabloids at bay.

But there's even more Sabina isn't telling him. Before dedicating her life to battling blazes, Sabina led a very different life, one that made her famous. The last thing she wants is to have her secret exposed. The papers, bloggers, and TV gossips will have a field day with that—especially when they sense the obvious sexual heat between Sabina and Chief Roman, who's torn between firing her...and falling in love with her!

This is a fun romance novel with sort of a Chick Lit feel.  There's the usual hot, passionate tearing off of clothing, and hot vanilla action. While the love story is exciting and the intimacy tantalizing (not everyone has to be into handcuffs), what really makes the difference in this story is the sincerity of Rick, the confusion both characters find themselves grappling with and the fierce passion the characters exhibit outside the bedroom.

As is so often the case, poor communication and internal conflicts conspire to keep our love interests separate. Add to that policies disallowing a relationship and you get a romance novel. But, it doesn't become an employment law handbook (thank goodness). That conflict only serves to heighten the unfairness of Sabina's situation and her and Rick's issues too.

I also liked how Jennifer discussed the issues facing women breaking into male-dominated jobs. Having worked as a phone tech in the late 1970s I remember being told how women's changing role in society was the source of all evil in society.

The characters are different and have unusual quirks that pull them out of central casting. I especially found Sabina's friend Vader someone I could see hanging around at the gym. But there are several twists and turns that while hinted at I didn't anticipate.

Much fun, and as hot as the fires the San Gabriel Bachelor Fire Fighters put out.

Part of a series about a fire in San Gabriel in Southern California.  These hot hunks have been the source of a lot of media attention.  Now it's one of the two female fire fighters getting all the attention.
