Blog Tour – Up In Smoke by 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.

Review – Up in Smoke by Kate Meader

60150575

Up in Smoke; Hot in Chicago Rookies #1 
(An interconnected standalone within a series)

Publication Date: February 22, 2022

Genre/Tropes: Hero Contemporary Romance

Author: Kate Meader

Review Rating: 5 Gold Stars

Review/Synopsis:

Review:

Insta-attraction, slow burn, hot chemistry romance. This is the first book I’ve read by Kate Meader and I definitely want to dive right back in to another one as soon as possible.

I loved reading about Chicago, a city near and dear to my heart, plus the whole book was page-turning from the adorable pie stealing meet-cute all the way the couples HEA.

Roman Rossi and Abby Sullivan meet on one incredible night in a corner diner. They share a piece of cherry pie and one amazing kiss, ending the night by exchanging numbers. While they might have planned to meet again, destiny had something else in mind as Abby began a new job and Roman is her commanding officer at Engine 6.

Dating Lieutenant Rossi is well out of the limitations Abby has on her dating life. She refuses to jeopardize her career by dating her superior and she also has always refused to fall in love with a firefighter. She saw what it did to her parents and she will never fall down that hole. While she may have enjoyed the time she spent with Roman on their initial meeting, she knows it can never be more, even though every time she’s near him her hormones go haywire. It’s just not worth it.

Just when Roman thought he met someone it turns out the woman he meets is off limits in every sense of the word. Abby is his candidate, she’s also the daughter of the fire commissioner. The man who could ruin his career if he really wanted to. It doesn’t lesson what he feels for the beautiful redhead, but he is a professional and he will not let his hormones dictate how he runs his life.

This book brings a lot of tension, tons of chemistry with great writing and lots of plot. I’m excited to jump back into this world and read more by Kate Meader.

Synopsis:

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

Running an engine crew in the Chicago Fire Department is my dream job, and between that, my awesome kid, and my nosey sister, I lead a pretty great life. Bruised and burned by my marriage, I don’t have time for dating or drama, but I always have time for pie. And when I share a slice of cherry with a sweet redhead, followed by the hottest, dirtiest, most pulse-pounding kiss of my life, I start to rethink the possibilities.

Until that same woman walks into my firehouse and upends my well-ordered world.

Abby Sullivan is now a rookie firefighter on my crew and a threat to my self-control more dangerous than a five-alarm blaze. My job is to watch her six when all I want is to watch her fall into my bed. Lust has no place in the firehouse, and a distraction like Abby with her electric blue eyes, waves of flame-red hair, and freckles I want to map with my tongue, is one I 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.
