Melissa McGuire couldn’t believe that her grandmother made her go to an auction of hot single fireman and actually won one of them for her. Melissa didn’t want to go on the date but as she looked into Harry’s eyes she couldn’t say no. Melissa knew there could be nothing between them as they were too different, then passion took over for Melissa but would that be enough for them to survive?
Fire Captain Harry Brody didn’t like attention which was why he avoided the auction except when he had to do Ryan the favor. Harry couldn’t believe his luck with Melissa, there was passion and she was not one to throw a fit. He will find though that passion is not all he likes about Melissa as she makes him feel alive, but there will be plenty of complications to rip them apart.
So now looking at the novel you wonder why someone would pick this book. With The Fireman Who Loved Me I let the cover pull me in, so this time I did judge a book by its cover. Jennifer Bernard has wit, some laughs, and lots of passion bring to this first book of the Bachelor Fireman series. Aside from the fiery characters, no pun intended, there are some extraordinary side characters who I can definitely see being part of the continuing series like Ryan another firefighter.
The two main characters were completely wrong for each other but in every way it counted perfect for each other. I liked the constant battle that was going on between Melissa and Harry it was funny but challenging. Melissa was a great character as she grew within the book, she grew a backbone when everything was crumbling beneath her feet. Harry was a man who saved people but he finally found a way to save his own life.
Now the matchmaking grandmother Nelly was fantastic. I love the gumption she had and of course the secret she carried. I wasn’t thrilled what happened at the end but it was heartwarming nevertheless. Now as Nelly was good Ella the news report whom I loathed was definitely the villain. She turned out okay in the end, well really it was just strange with what happened but made sense. There was also Rebecca who I wasn’t thrilled with but once again things worked out. In the end most of the characters find happiness leaving a happy ending. I will definitely be revisiting this fireman series.
