Hot for the Fireman by Gina L. Maxwell - Book Review & Giveaway


 Book review

Amazon USA Amazon UK Goodreads B&N | Kobo | iBooks

Erik suffers from PSTD. He's a war veteran who now works as a firefighter, but in order to be able to safely do his job again he needs therapy. Shortly before his first session he meets the woman of his dreams and has a hot night with her. To his surprise the woman, Olivia, is his new therapist. Erik thought he'd never see her again and even though she won't be able to treat him as a patient Erik isn't giving up on her. He wants to go on a date with her and will do everything it takes to make her like him enough to agree.

Olivia is still recovering from something heartbreaking that happened in her past. She isn't ready to date yet, but a one-night stand is a good beginning. When Erik walks into her office she's determined to turn him down, but he's persistent and eventually he manages to make her promise to go on three dates with him. Will this be enough for Erik to win her heart and does Olivia dare to let anyone come close again?

Hot for the Fireman is a funny and sexy story with quite a bit of depth. Erik has awful traumas he needs to get help for and it broke my heart to see him suffer. He's a kindhearted and loyal man. His tenacity and boldness is endearingly irritating and the way he pursues Olivia often made me laugh. Erik is perfect for Olivia, he makes her smile, he's giving her plenty of compliments and he tries to make her as happy as possible, which is incredibly sweet. Olivia has a playful side, but grieving has made her more serious. She's caring, protective and a bit stiff at first, but Erik slowly melts her heart and I liked how she comes out of her shell because of him. Olivia and Erik are perfect for each other, but Olivia needs time to get used to the idea of being with someone again. Erik deals with this in an adorable way. They have plenty of chemistry and they can't stop touching each other, but the emotional issues are making things difficult for them. I read their story in one sitting because I couldn't wait to find out if they'd both find some happiness in their future after everything they went through in the past.

Gina L. Maxwell writes in a raw and honest way, which is something I loved about Hot for the Fireman. Her main characters are fabulous and I enjoyed the vivid way she describes their personalities. She makes her story come to life really well. Even though both Erik and Olivia are both emotionally damaged, the story remains fairly lighthearted because of the way Erik talks to Olivia. It might seem crude, but the irony that's behind it makes it cute instead. Hot for the Fireman is a scorching hot story with plenty of passion and love and a wonderful healthy sense of humor.

Advice

If you like reading funny and sexy romantic stories about gorgeous men in uniform you will love Hot for the Fireman.
