    Loved it!

    LOVED! This! Book! I'm so sad to see this series end but I must say Ms. Meader saved the best for last. Wyatt Fox is a sexy former marine working for the Chicago FD. As a member of the misfit Dempsey clan what else would he do?? He's a man of few words but with looks like that who needs words? While recovering from a recent injury he finds himself as a consultant on the movie set of Molly Cade. A woman he never thought he'd see again after their one night filled with passion. That one night wasn't enough for him so maybe the heavens have put her back in his life for a reason. Will Molly agree? For someone who really doesn't enjoy the limelight could he survive in her world? Could she give up the lights of Hollywood?? You definitely want to read this one and find out. Put this one on the must read list! I highly recommend it.

    Sparking the Fire

    I have enjoyed reading this series from Kate. This story is another good read for us. Kate does a good job of developing her characters to get you falling into the story. I will say that this book is a mature read for those under 18. Wyatt is in a family of fosters to save them and they lose Sean,their father and their brother Logan. They are firefighters. Wyatt meets Molly, an actress, producer to make a movie of the family. Her ex, Ryan, tried to ruin her work. Major Spoiler. Toni is 15 and has beat Cancer but never met her true father Logan. Major Spoiler. Please make sure you have lots of tissues beside you. This was a story you can't put down. But on the other hand you have to just walk away for awhile. I liked this story line that started with a different beginning. I hope you will take time to read this book. You won't be sorry if you do. Enjoy this read! I have this book for an honest review for NetGalley.

    AWESOME BOOK, AWESOME SERIES

    SPARKING THE FIRE by Kate Meader is a warm, witty romance and is the fifth book in the sizzling HOT IN CHICAGO series. Sadly, this is the final book in the series and focuses on the last of the Dempsey firefighting family to find his happily ever after. Wyatt Fox is a 6'3" tall, dark and badass ex-Marine firefighter who's doing light duty while he's nursing a shoulder injury from his latest rescue. He's assigned as a consultant to a movie being filmed about his firefighting foster sister, Alex, and, lo and behold, the star is none other than the hottest hookup he's ever had, actress Molly Cade. He's never forgotten the wild and wanton week he spent with her five years before. Molly is desperate for this movie to succeed. Her Hollywood sweetheart image has suffered from negative publicity, both from her failed marriage and leaked nude pictures. Imagine her surprise when she discovers her story consultant is none other than the man she spent five glorious nights with when she was a fledgling actress and that he's part of the Dempsey clan featured in her film. This follows their renewed connection and all their trials and tribulations in developing a deeper relationship. Though I hadn't read any of the previous books in the series, I was able to follow this one without any trouble. The main characters are very different from each other, and as I read through the whole series (I purchased all the other series' books the minute I finished this one), I noted that each person stays true to his or her own distinct flaws and strengths. You can even recognize a character just from how they talk (similar to the unique characters in Kristen Ashley's awesome ROCK CHICKS series). Pros: 1. The plot and subplots are realistic and are interwoven skillfully. 2. Every scene is important to the overall storyline, not just filler to increase page count. 3. Characters are all unique and stay true to their strengths and flaws throughout the series. Cons: None that I can tell. Overall: SPARKING THE FIRE is a delightful second chance romance starring an alpha firefighting male and a strong actress female, and their story is the perfect ending to the HOT IN CHICAGO series. If you like men-in-uniforms romances, this series should be one of your top choices to devour at the beach. So bon appetit and happy reading!

    The series goes out with a bang!

    The last story in the Hot in Chicago series gives us the enigmatic and stoic Wyatt, and his one week stand Molly, who is back in his life once again. Their anonymous fling at a hotel five years earlier, just as Wyatt was getting his feet back on the ground after his latest military tour was just what they needed at that time, but they’ve never forgotten each other. Wyatt went on home to join his foster siblings (the Dempseys) and the Chicago Fire Department, while Molly went on to fame and fortune (and a disastrous marriage, now ended). When Molly shows up in Wyatt’s life again as her acting career takes her to Chicago, this time they aren’t going to leave things unsaid. The prologue of the story gives the reader a taste of the sexual combustibility of Wyatt and Molly as we see a glimpse of what brought them together, and then flash forward into the heart of the story, five years later. It’s no wonder they haven’t ever forgotten each other in the ensuing time. Seeing each other again sparks all those feelings, only this time, they won’t be so easily dismissed. Though Molly and Wyatt both try to tell themselves that falling into an affair now is a mistake, they can’t help themselves from taking a forbidden taste…and then another…and then another. I loved seeing the two of them together again, the sexual tension ratcheted up with each encounter and falling head over heels in love despite their best efforts to remain emotionally unattached. Wyatt’s got important reasons for wanting to keep his relationship with Molly, and her involvement with the Dempseys in general, low key. Yet it doesn’t stop him from enjoying having her around his family, who fall for her and her feisty, friendly self just like him. There are some emotional scenes in the story as some family dynamics come into play, as well as lots of laughs especially with Gage, Wyatt’s younger brother, whose irrepressible charm has him stealing several scenes. Molly’s bubbly character is a perfect foil for Wyatt’s stoic façade and it made the whole story just a delight to read. When the film shoot is finished and it’s time for Molly to move on, Wyatt and Molly have to make some key decisions about their future. I loved every bit of this story and series, and will be on the lookout for whatever Kate Meader has up her sleeve next.

    I'm gonna miss this family!

    Another fun, drama filled story of the Dempsey family of Engine Co. 6! This is a great family and I've enjoyed their stories so much. Always a sexy hot read, with lots of family depth and humor thrown in! Scandalized Hollywood actress Molly Cade needs her latest film to go off without a hitch to earn back some respect for her tainted career! She wants every aspect of her action flick to be precise, so she is working with the best firehouse around to make it happen. Sexy loner Wyatt Fox needs something to keep him busy while he recovers from his latest hot-headed recovery stunt at the firehouse, so his Lieutenant sets him up to be the expert consultant on the movie set of an upcoming movie. He's trying to get out of it until he realizes it's a Cade Productions film. Molly Cade and he once burned up the sheets in a week long anonymous fling, so he can't pass up the chance to see her again!
