They enter fiery structures with selfless courage—the very definition of the word “hero.” Women understand their allure… A soot-covered face, sweat dripping from hard, chiseled muscles, the sharp snap of suspenders — yes, only a fireman can make suspenders sexy! Delilah Devlin’s burning-hot book includes thrilling stories teeming with gorgeous firemen from some of today’s hottest romance writers. In “Saving Charlotte,” Sabrina York’s firefighting Dom rescues a woman tied to a red-hot bed; from Cathryn Fox comes “Temperature Rising” where a fire chief fulfills some very steamy fantasies; Elle James’s “Chasing Fire” sees a daring smoke-jumper parachuting into the hot zone of a forest fire then setting his girlfriend ablaze with erotic heat; and Magic Mike ain’t got nothin’ on Delilah’s own fireman-turned-exotic-dancer-for-a-night “Johnny Blaze.”
With a list of award-winning authors that includes Ily Goyanes, Shoshanna Evers, Adele Dubois, and Rachel Firasek, Delilah delivers tales of these courageous men sliding down their big poles to steal readers’ hearts! Smokin’ Hot Firemen imagines the romantic possibilities of being held against that massively muscled chest by a man whose mission is to protect and serve . .
My review for this book will be a bit different as this an anthology of many stories and while it is hard to write a review and not give anything away when it is a good size story, when they are as short as these are – it is extremely hard to NOT give away the story… So, I just write about what I read….
The collective voices of all the authors in this anthology are awesome. These women were given a mission, to write about firemen and boy did they deliver. There are sixteen short stories in all. Although some are a few pages long and others a little longer, one thing through all those pages have is some serious smoking hot freaking firemen and some smoking hot sex scenes. These authors didn’t back down from the challenge and for that I thank them. They freely gave their characters emotion, passion, desire, and lust. But they also put their characters through fear and doubt. They made their stories real; they gave life to each one you read.
With writing a very short story like these authors did, it is hard to first deliver a story that a reader will believe because of the length of the story. Then it is hard because you have to give the reader everything they so desire within those few pages. So, first kudos to all the authors in this anthology, you ladies did an amazing job. Secondly, readers, please beware that if you love a long, drawn out courting, romance, then sex kinda story… Well, just sit back, relax and let go for a little while, while you read these tales. Enjoy them for what they are – quickies that sometimes we only fantasize about.
These wonderful authors tapped into what is assumingly one fantasize all us women share – being with a freaking hot fireman, in any way, shape or form. They delivered us stories about married couples whose emotions are real because they are scared for their loves one as they might not come back from that call. Some deliver us stories of our hero’s being rescued by that special someone and not even knowing they were the one in need of being rescued but most of all what they deliver us is some stuff to light a fire in the bedroom and make our own fantasizes come true.
Some characters will delight you, some will make you laugh, others you may want to slap for being bullheaded and some you might just simply fall in love with. The stories are for you to simply read and enjoy. Not to judge if the story is to short or if the sex is not timed right within the story, just read and enjoy… Give the authors many props for dishing us dirty, naughty stories in such a short read. Much love to each and every one of the authors in this collection – you all rock! And your stories…. Well, let’s just say you might need to hose down the book as they may self ignite. Happy Reading Smutty Readers!
