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…

One-Sentence Summary: Sassy firefighter meets sleek and well-coifed mayor
Review: This book is everything you would come from a Kate Meader book – lots of fiery hot scenes and some great dialogue. Alex and Eli’s story is definitely a case of ‘opposites attract’. Much to Alex’s dismay, the sassy firefighter finds herself attracted to a guy who represents everything she doesn’t like. Luckily for Eli though they save each other’s lives and embark upon a high stakes fake relationship to win those pesky voters around. Add in a cute dog and a handful of Dempsey brothers in super Alpha mode and you’ve got the perfect romance package.
The only thing I would want more of his Alex in kickass firefighting mode.
