Description

Rick Gullotti lives the good life. He fights fires, dates beautiful women—though none long enough so they cast wistful glances at jewelry stores—and has great friends. And thanks to helping out the elderly couple who own his building, his rent is low. But when concerns about their health lead him to contact their only son, his life starts getting away from him.

Jessica Broussard has no interest in leaving sunny San Diego or her cushy corner office for Boston, but her father—who happens to be her boss—dispatches her to deal with the grandparents she's never met. She's unprepared for the frigid winter, loving relatives who aren't the monsters she's been led to believe, and the hot, scruffy firefighter who lives upstairs.

At first, Jessica is determined to get back to her comfortable life as quickly as possible. All she has to do is talk her grandparents into selling their monstrosity of a house and moving to a retirement community. But she underestimates Rick's dedication—and his considerable charm. Nobody's taking advantage of his friends on his watch, even if that makes the tempting southern California girl with the long legs his adversary. Unfortunately for them both, the only thing more urgent than the matter at hand is their sizzling chemistry, and it's quickly becoming too strong to resist.

        October 19, 2015
        Stacey’s second Boston Fire contemporary (after Heat Exchange) builds a satisfying romance atop a cast of strong, realistic characters. Firefighter Rick Gullotti rents an apartment from retirees Joe and Marie Broussard and thinks of them as his own family. When Jessica Broussard, the granddaughter they never knew they had, shows up on their doorstep, Rick gets extremely protective. Despite the long-standing rift between Jessica’s father and his parents, he’s still their next of kin. A doctor leaves a voice mail saying that Joe is ill; Jessica overhears it and impulsively heads to Boston. At first she’s intent on convincing her grandparents to sell their home. She definitely isn’t expecting to go up against a sexy firefighter who doesn’t trust her motives. As the chemistry crackles between Rick and Jessica, she must decide whether to agree with her straitlaced father’s judgmental view of the parents he abandoned, or embrace her grandparents and the man who takes her breath away. Stacey’s engaging novel is pure comfort food: readers know just what to expect, and it’s deeply satisfying.
