As the only female firefighter at Engine Co. 6, Alexandra Dempsey gets it from all sides: the male coworkers who think she can’t do the job, the wives and girlfriends who see her as a threat to their firefighter men, and her overprotective foster brothers who want to shelter their baby sister at all costs. So when she single-handedly saves the life of Eli Cooper, Chicago’s devastatingly handsome mayor, she assumes the respect she’s longed for will finally come her way. But it seems Mr. Mayor has other ideas…
Eli Cooper’s mayoral ratings are plummeting, his chances at reelection dead in the water. When a sexy, curvaceous firefighter gives him the kiss of life, she does more than bring him back to the land of the living—she also breathes vitality into his campaign. Riding the wave of their feel-good story might prop up Eli’s flagging political fortunes, but the sizzling attraction between them can go nowhere; he’s her boss, and there are rules that must be obeyed. But you know what they say about rules: they’re made to be broken…
I read the first book in this series a couple months ago, and really wanted to read this book but it got put on the back burner for a while and i finally gave in a brought it, and it didn't disappoint it had everything a strong female character, a strong male character and family friendship and a beautiful dog. 

Character wise i loved Alex in the first book, and i loved her even more in this book, she was feisty and fiery (no pun intended) she definitely had some character development as well and she grew in her self and her confidence, so i loved her as a lead character and as a background character in the first book.

Eli p****d me off at times he got on my last nerve, you cannot be that misogynistic and still try to get the girl who you have insulted countless times. But again like Alex he grows throughout the book, and in the end you do end up liking him. All of the other characters in this book brought something to it, from Eli's dog to his Ex Wife and all of Alex's brothers, i cannot wait to carry on with this series 

This was a story i have read a lot of recently but not the same setting, a firefighter and a female one at that was an odd experience to read from but i actually enjoyed it. It was a fun quick read for me and i enjoyed it a lot, the characters and setting were what made this book for me and i have fallen in love with firefighters and Chicago. 

Until Next Time
Happy Reading
