Holy hotness! The male and females of Hook and Ladder 69 will make you want more and on several occasions will leave you needing extra pair of panties!

Each chapter is written from one of the 18 authors and totally will keep you interest. What a great way to raise money for charity than some very hot fireman and sexy firewoman. I hope these authors will continue the stories in a stand alone, I know I would love to have some more of these hot men on my kindle!!!

18 Hot Chapter's of Firefighters!

In Hooked & Ladder 69 you get to meet a new firefighter in each chapter. Even though each chapter is written by a different author, the book has a good flow. You would think it was written by one author. I think its FANTASTIC that ALL the proceeds are going to the Burned Children Recovery Foundation.

You'll need a bucket of water or a hose to cool you off after you read Hooked & Ladder 69. Grab a copy and meet the hot/sexy men and women of Station 69.

Inferno had me hooked from the first page. I can't wait to read more of the other authors. I was given just an arc of Madison Streets chapter. I will extend my review when it releases. But it's a for sure must read.

What a fun way to do something for charity! 18 writers basically write a chapter a piece and it is AWESOME! Who doesn’t love a fireman and in this book, which you just fly thru, not only do we get the fireman we get the firewoman. What makes it work and work well is who gets the fireman, the nurse who just broke up with the cheating hot doctor, the rescue worker, the firewoman who loved desperately, the nerd who’s taking care of her mother, the butchers who handle their meat, the cop and don’t f ...more

I was extremely excited to read this book! Such an amazing group of talented authors!!

This book is an anthology about a firehouse. Stories of the men and women of this firehouse! The characters these authors wrote about were so interesting to me. I couldn't seem to put this book down. Their words grabbed me as a reader! I couldn't wait to find the ending to each of their stories. I felt for these characters and was so glad I was reading their stories!!

Hot firefighter stories for a great cause, The Burned Children Recovery Foundation.

One fire station...Station No. 69 (yes, really), and the firefighters who work there make up the characters for these short stories. Each story is a chapter about a different character by a different author. The chapters are a mixture of romantic, sweet, sexy, funny, and dramatic. Warning...many of them will leave you wanting more! Let's hope we get more.

I was so excited to get to read this book early! I love stories about men and women in uniform. This was the first time I read anything from most of these authors, but all of their stories were great.

I loved how each author wrote a chapter of the book and that each chapter told the story of a different firefighter's quest for love.

The book was a fun, quick sexy read! You've got to try it and all for a wonderful cause!

There was so much to love about this book! 18 authors for one and firefighters for two!! I especially love Felicia Tatums story " Raccoons and Cookies" The title was relatable and upbeat making me interested even before reading anything else! Felicia had such a unique angle bringing a breath of fresh air to this tale of the men and women firefighters at station 69! This was certainly a must read!

This is a smoking hot collection of 18 short stories of the firefighters of Station 69. There are second chance romances, cliffhangers, forbidden love and everything in between. I really liked how each chapter is a separate story and I enjoyed the diversity of the characters. This is a fun anthology that you don't want to miss & it's for a great cause!

Nadia Debowska-Stephens (Obsessed by Books)
This is a collaboration of 18 authors who have each taken a chapter and written a short story about one sexy firehouse! The crew are all drop dead gorgeous, each with a story to tell. Each individual chapter is a self contained story that provides a snap shot into the life of a firefighter or paramedic. Some of the stories are sweet, saucy, downright kinky whilst others are more emotional and filled with laughter. From saving kittens to handling their meat the stories are richly diverse and ever ...more

I had the pleasure of reading a few stories from this incredible collection!

REKINDLED by L.B. Dunbar gave us the totally hot and smoldering connection of Ash and Adara, A firefighter and the one who got away! What happened in the years spent apart is a delicious treat, and how they meet up again is most entertaining! I love L.B. Dunbar's style, and readers of all kinds will love it too!

Oh my Lord can you say SCORCHING? This was seriously one of the hottest anthologies I have read in a while. There is something for everyone in here; sweet, hot and steamy, a little drama and angst, even some laughter. All of that wrapped up in what has to be the hottest fire station ever! From the moment I began reading to the very last page I was in love. I can't even tell you which story was my favorite either because each one is so great.

18 Amazing Authors have come together to make this amazing read. Each author has their own little story but there is always an underlying connection to all the others which I loved. I was so shocked at how well this was written. Not that they are not amazing writers but that they could get all their different writing styles to mesh as one. This just proves that these ladies are not afraid to step out of their comfort zones. This book is filled with strong Alpha males that you can’t help but swoo ...more

A clever collection of 18 authors each taking on a chapter involving one, or more, members of Firehouse 69 in St. Louis. Some of the chapters worked together to create a mini two chapter book while others played on the character's role in another chapter. We have a great mix of hot quick one night stands, second chance romances and a m/m relationship. Some were along the dirty encounter and some were sweet without anything steamier than a deep moan inducing kiss. Better than an anthology these a ...more

This book is a wonderful read!! It takes you on a roller coaster ride from deep feels to mystery and all the naughtiness you could ask for in between. Definitely something for everyone to love. With each chapter you are immersed into the lives of the men and women of Station 69; all separate yet interconnected. I want more!!

Five Alarm Fire - a sweet story about Erin and Matt. Erin works in the butcher department for a grocery store. Matt is a firefighter. They meet up every Thursday when the firefighters come to the grocery store for their dinner. There is some mild flirtation that goes on between the two of them. It is really cute. After seven months, they decide to move forward and see about maybe dating each other. Will a five alarm fire stop them from making good on their decision?

I really enjoyed the concept behind this book. I love that I not only get to read chapters by some of my favorite authors, but I get to sample new to me authors and their writing styles. It always amazes me how the Indie community comes together to support worthy causes by donating proceeds from projects like Hook and Ladder 69. I love the idea of a firehouse book benefitting a burn center for children. Kudos to the authors for putting this collection together.
