Review- SPARKING THE FIRE by Kate Meader

Pocket Books
September 27, 2016
ISBN 9781476785936

Praise for Sparking the Fire, Book 3:
“The tale of hot firefighters and the women—and one man—who love them has come to an end. Meader ends this series with role playing, fierce family loyalty and multiple orgasms. The male protagonist goes through a transformation that showcases his vulnerability, insecurities, possessiveness and protectiveness. The many instances of a family sticking together through it all are more than enough to tug on the heart strings, but the steamy sex and sentimental pillow talk make this book a must-read.”
RT Book Reviews Four Star Review, Scorcher

“Can a firefighter and a movie star really make it work? Meader (Rekindle the Flame, 2015) immerses you in Wyatt’s tight-knit family of foster siblings that she’s built throughout the Hot in Chicago series, and readers will feel like part of the family in no time. Her descriptions of Chicago will leave fans wanting to travel to the Windy City and fall in love with their own firefighters.”

About Sparking the Fire, Book 3:
Heating up reading lists this Fall will be Kate Meader’s highly anticipated Sparking the Fire, the “sexy and sassy” (#1 New York Times bestselling author Jude Deveraux) steamy third novel in the Hot in Chicago series, where former lovers unexpectedly reunite for a sizzling affair that will have the director yelling, “Quiet on the set!”

Wyatt Fox, resident daredevil at Engine Company 6, needs a low key job to keep him busy while he recovers from his latest rescue stunt. Consulting on a local movie shoot should add just enough spark to his day. But then in struts Molly Cade: the woman who worked his heart over good, and then left him in the Windy City dust.

Actor Molly Cade, America’s fallen sweetheart, finally has her shot at a Hollywood comeback with a dramatic new role as a tough-as-nails firefighter that promises to propel her back into the big time. And she’s not going to let anything stand in her way—even a certain brooding, blue-eyed firefighter she’s never quite been able to forget…Their story is straight out of a script: irrepressible, spunky heroine meets taciturn, smoldering hero. But these two refuse to be typecast, and when the embers of an old love are stoked, someone is bound to get burned…

So, even though I didn't love this as much as Playing with Fire, I was still entertained for the most part. Wyatt is the strong silent, broody type; one of my favorites. And Molly is the good girl next door and was Americas sweetheart before she went ahead and dethroned herself. Now she's ready to get back in the game and get back into Americas good graces. By doing so, she wants to consult with Engine 6 for her firefighter movie she's making in Chicago. 

Who better to help consult but Wyatt! 

The way the two met was H-O-T. I could tell you all about it in great detail but I want you to be able to experience the sexiness yourself. Of course, I believe the book could just combust into a huge ball of fire with the way the two looked and acted around each other. Anyways, Wyatt and Molly must work together. Even though years and years have passed since the two spent intimate times together, they pick up where they left off. 

What kind of book would it be though without the yummy drama and secondary characters. Both of which I absolutely loved! Firefighters. Hollywood. Hot men. Did I mention "hot" firefighters? Great characters. You don't want to miss out on the 'Hot In Chicago' books. If you're a reader who loves romance, sexy men, and strong heroines, these books will not let you down! Kate Meader knows how to make you feel all warm and fuzzy inside.

About the Author:
Kate Meader was raised on romance. An Irish girl, she started with Catherine Cookson and Jilly Cooper novels, and spiced it up with some Mills & Boon. Now based in Chicago, she writes romances of her own, where sexy contemporary alpha heroes and strong heroines match each other quip for quip. When not immersed in tales of brooding mill owners, oversexed equestrians, and men who can rock an apron or a fire hose, Kate lives on the web at
