*I received an ARC of this book free from NetGalley on behalf of Kensington Books in exchange for an honest review*
Hot Shots consists of three short ‘sexy firefighter’ stories: Fired Up, Sizzle, and Five-Alarm Masquerade.
Fired Up is definitely a fitting title. Hannah sits in her tower like Rapunzel watching for signs of fire and Cole is the hotshot who helps put them out.
It all starts with a voice he cannot resist; one Cole wants to hear in private. And when Hannah answers his calls on the private line they share night after night of hot phone sex. She enjoyed her evening calls, but never had she intended on meeting him in person. But when her line goes down with a lightning strike he rushes to check on her. It doesn’t take long for their passionate conversations to become a reality even greater than either could have imagined.
My Favorite Moment: A bet paid. Well played, Cole! Well played!
Fired Up gets 4 Fiery Stars!
Sizzle is a story about Maysen, a magazine owner/photographer, coming to town to do a photo shoot of the sexy volunteer firefighters of Lanville. But after she meets Clay, the fire chief, photographs and interviews isn’t the only things she wants.
Clay doesn’t want to risk his heart again, but Maysen caught his eye the moment she sauntered into town. However, the moment he found out she was the woman who wanted to interview and photograph not only all of his volunteer firefighters, but him too, he decided to put distance between them. He wasn’t risking falling for a woman who only planned on being in town for a short time. If only he could convince his body of his head’s decision.
They can’t fight the fact that they both want to devour each other, but will they fight the feelings for more they both begin to have?
My Favorite Laughable Moments: Nothing like an embarrassing moment for Clay. “What, you think because I’m a grandmother I don’t think about sex?”
My Favorite Quote: “She couldn’t breathe, but she didn’t care. She’d take ecstasy over oxygen any day.”
Sizzle gets 5 Fiery Stars!
Fire-Alarm Masquerade seemed more of a quick fix seduction than a captivating short story.
It starts with Abby’s house in flames and in her overly emotional state literally falls into the arms of a firefighter. Gavin is used to fighting fires, not consoling victims, but with her there wasn’t any place he would have rather been.
Not being able to shake Abby from his mind, Gavin sends her a gift and an invitation. A delivery she assumes is for her friend Sierra, and yet she decides to go in her friends place. With the mask no one will know who she is anyway. And yet when her sexy masked man who she’s chosen to spend the evening with says her name, not Sierra’s, she panics…and runs.
A determined Gavin won’t let Abby forget about what happened between them, nor will he let her forget the magnetism the share. He’s determined to have her not only in his bed, but also his life. And it doesn’t take much convincing for Abby to fall right where he wants her.
My Favorite Character: Sierra! There is nothing like an outspoken bestie to add laughter into a story. I loved her reaction to Abby’s confession!
“Well, that’s disappointing, but it sounds like you’ve got me beat in the naughty department.” She plucked at her cotton T-shirt. “‘Cause I sure-as-shit wouldn’t do something like that.”
Five-Alarm Masquerade gets 3 Fiery Stars!
Overall, I give this 4 stars!
