Kate Meador's Playing with Fire ♡♥Review♥♡

From popular romance author Kate Meader comes the second novel in Hot in Chicago, a brand-new, sizzling series that follows a group of firefighting foster siblings and their blazing hot love interests!

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…

Playing With Fire was a great book with a bit of snark. Talk about two people least expected to be together and yet perfect for each other. Alex was awesome. I loved she was a tough as nails firefighter who worked hard to show women could do this job. I also Liked that Eli though he made suckish decisions didn't do it with evil or thoughtless intent. Both have hard jobs one had to show they could do it the other had to show they were the right one for the job. The sexual tension rolling off these two was a huge presence. I enjoyed the mystery in the book so it wasn't just about getting Alex and Eli together, though that was a huge job.

Though this is book 2 in the Hot in Chicago series Playing with Fire is a standalone and can be enjoyed as such. I do believe though reading Flirting with Fire book 1 would enhance the enjoyment of this book as well as give more incite into some of the character's history. I recommend this book to anyone wanting a good romance with a bit of mystery.
