When Stars Collide (Chicago Stars, #9)When Stars Collide by Susan Elizabeth Phillips
My rating: 2 of 5 stars

At the 80% mark this book became painful.
This is an example of TOO MUCH... too much drama, too much subplots, too much nonsense...

Up in Smoke by Kate Meader

 


 


UP IN SMOKE

Kate Meader

Release Date: February 22

 

Lives are on the line at Engine 6 … and so are hearts.

 

Newly-minted firefighter Abby Sullivan is exactly where she wants to be: Chicago Fire Department’s Engine 6, the station where her mom blazed a trail as one of the first female firefighters in the city. The first to fall in the line of duty, too. All Abby wants is to succeed, but that’s a tough proposition when people only see a feel-good story, a token woman failing at a man’s job, or the princess in need of protection. And the man tasked with watching her six? 

 

Lieutenant Roman Rossi, the one person she can’t let close. 

 

Having the daughter of his boss and nemesis under his wing shouldn’t be a problem for Roman—he’s a professional and can treat her like any other firefighter rookie. Except she happens to be the gorgeous woman he once shared a slice of cherry pie with, followed by the hottest, sweetest, most pulse-pounding kiss of his life. He didn’t know her name but he had planned to find out.

 

Now Roman knows exactly who Abby is: a threat to his self-control more dangerous than a five-alarm blaze. Lust has no place in the firehouse, and a distraction like Abby with her electric blue eyes, waves of flame-red hair, and freckles Roman wants to map with his tongue, is one he can ill afford. 

 

Because one wrong move … and it could all go up in smoke.

 

Up in Smoke is the first in the brand new Hot in Chicago Rookies series about firefighters navigating the trials of new jobs and sizzling romances as they find their place in the world and the love of a lifetime.

Four Stars
Kate Meader knows how to hit all the spots for me! I just loved this love story so much! Abby Sullivan and Roman Rossi were so likeable and I loved seeing the Dempsey's back! They are one of my favorite book families. 
Abby is a rookie, a female firefighter. She carries alot of family history with her. Her mom was one of the first female fire fighters and passed away when she was 6.  Her father is the fire chief commissioner and is not happy that she is following in the family foot steps. To top that off, her LT. is Roman, the same guy she met at the diner and they hit it off, with the promise of a follow up phone call. Things are complicated...
I have to say that I really enjoyed this book and can't wait for the next one in the series. The storyline was interesting, sweet and satisfying

Currently Reading: The Heiress Hunt by Joanna Shupe

 


Four Stars
I started reading this book awhile ago and had to stop.  Life interfered. I finally had a chance to revisit it and really enjoyed it. I really liked Maddie Webster and Harrison Archer. I loved their friendship and thought it was a great background to their relationship. I have to say that Harrison really made of mess of his intentions and his high handedness was not always great.  I couldn´t understand why Maddie wouldn´t just accept her feelings for him since they had so much shared history.  The part where she asks him for a separation was so raw and emotional it made the story a four star for me.  The secondary characters are so fun and I can´t wait to read their stories.  Granted I am a huge Joanna Shupe fan, so I am more than happy to read her writing.  The audio book was narrated by Justine Eyre and I enjoyed her telling of the story.

So sweet and beautiful.
This was a mixture of shared thoughts and permission to be a real human searching with love.
I loved Drew since I read "Little girl Lost" and I just loved this vulnerable and caring audiobook.

Tailspin by Sandra Brown

TailspinTailspin by Sandra Brown
My rating: 2 of 5 stars

I really like Sandra Brown but this book was not one of my favorites.
The storyline seemed very drawn out. The romance felt flat and the narration didn't work for me...:(
But still a Sandra Brown fan!
