Review: Hot for Fireman by Jennifer Bernard

Hot for Fireman (The Bachelor Firemen of San Gabriel #2)
by Jennifer Bernard


Ryan Blake got suspended from the San Gabriel firefighters a year and a half ago for a daredevil act that nearly killed someone. Now he’s back in San Gabriel, fighting to return to the force. He takes a job at a local dive, the Hair of the Dog, while he studies for the test that will get him his job back.

But the real test comes in the form of Katie Dane, bar manager. Katie got stuck running the family bar when her father had a heart attack. The place is losing money like crazy and the insurance is about to lapse. Her desperate solution? Burn the place down, collect a million dollars. The only problem--little does she know, her new bartender is actually a firefighter.

Can a professional fireman and a wannabe firebug ever manage to get along? More importantly, can they stay away from each other and/or keep from ruining each other’s careers? Not likely. This is San Gabriel, after all.
I was looking forward to Ryan’s story in Hot For Fireman and was disappointed. I fell in love with The Fireman Who Loved Me, the characters and Jennifer Bernard writing but I could not get into this book.

It started off okay with Katie and Ryan having some bickering moments but I did not feel any chemistry between them. The characters seemed flat.

The sex scenes were a bit rushed and I did have to read them again because I felt I missed a part. The sexual tension was not there like in her 1st book.

Hot For Fireman was missing some LOL moments. Even the secondary characters (old men in the bar) were flat. The scene I thought was okay is when the firemen did a strip dance on the bar for charity at a bachorlette party.

I will continue to read this series because I did enjoyed her writing in the first book. This can be a stand alone book so you do not have to read it if reading the series.


  1. Hey, Thanks for the review--I have been wanting to read this series--it is waiting for me in my TBR pile. Do you still think I should read it or should I just read the first one and pass on this one??? Oh and Hey your sexy men are getting better then mine -- I don't know how I feel about you having better ones then me!!! LOL ;)

    1. Hi sweetie. This is only my thoughts about the book you still might like it. I loved her first book. You might like it. Maybe read other reviews before first and see if interested. So this way it is not just based on mine.


Hello Lovelies. Thank you for stopping by. I love to hear from you.
