Review:Fully Ignited by Shannon Stacey

When Jamie Rutherford takes a temporary assignment as lieutenant of Boston Fire’s Engine 59, she doesn’t anticipate any problems. She’s been in the fire service for a long time and, even though she’s fairly new to Boston, she knows how to make any firehouse her home. What she’s not prepared for is her reaction to firefighter Scott Kincaid.

Scott is looking for a wife. It’s been a fun ride as a single guy, but he’s tired of being the third wheel, and nearly losing his brother-in-law finally made him realize just how much he wants a family of his own. When the new guy at the firehouse turns out to be a capable, confident and very attractive woman, his plan is completely derailed.

Hooking up with a fellow firefighter has never been part of Jamie’s plan, but she’s tempted by Scott—even though getting involved with him could tarnish the reputation she’s worked so hard for. And Scott can’t stop thinking about Jamie, despite the fact that she’s his superior and not sticking around. Chemistry can crush the best-laid plans, though, and while Jamie and Scott might not be each other’s future…there’s no resisting the right now.

What I thought about Fully Ignited

Shannon Stacey does a great job of turning the familiar forbidden love trope on its head with Fully Ignited. Scott Kincaid incredibly attracted to his female boss and the feeling is mutual.  Both have a lot at stake -- Jamie's worked hard to get to her position, but she can't resist the attraction she feels for Scott.  Scott tries to resist too, and all he needs is the green light from Jamie and they are heating up the sheets.

Of course, they have to keep it secret from their co-workers, or at least try to. I love the brotherhood of the firefighters and how they looked out for each other both during work and outside of work. Fully Ignited left me feeling good, and that's what I'm used to from Shannon Stacey.

This book really clicked for me, and I'm looking forward to more and different titles from this author.
