For the Strength of the pack is the Wolf, and the strength of the wolf is the pack.

Well i'm not beating around the bush, Wolf/Erik is amazingly hot. I mean panty melting, weak at the knees hot!! Add in the turnout gear and he's just heavenly.

When Olivia/Livvie and Wolf first bump into each other sparks fly. The straight laced conservative Livvie had just had another horrific date and is feeling a little down on herself. Then when the gorgeous 'Paul Bunyan' sized man offers her o

Leaning a shoulder against the doorway, thumbs hooked in his front pockets and one ankle crossed over the other, Olivia’s worst nightmare and favorite fantasy leveled her with his penetrating stare and wicked grin. “What’s up, Doc?”

I feel like this book needs to come with a warning label. It's a damn fire hazard is what it your ovaries. Luckily Lieutenant Erik Grady comes equipped with a big fire hose to take care of combustions. *waggles brows*

But seriously,
No rating, because I knew better.

Well, really....who isn't hot for a fireman? I mean, look at this cover!

This was pretty good if you are in the mood for some light fun. It's a cheesy brazen type book. I actually love those, (see favorite cheesy Brazen book shelf). My problem, which is tragic, is that I've read too many of them and they all read the same to me now. I've read several by this author, and I've liked them all, it's just time for me to realize I need more in order to stay engaged in a
Not a bad read.

It was a pretty cute read, easy and hot, even fun at times.
It's pretty forgettable though. I liked the characters and the plot was pretty good, it just didn't have that je-ne-sais-quoi that makes a great book great.

Still worth reading, especially when you have no idea what else to read.

A series about current firefighters and former military heroes, who wouldn't want to read that!!

Lieutenant Erik Grady, after a recent fire that re-awakes his PTSD from his military days is making his current job difficult....Erik has always felt responsible for the death of the men in his team when he was in active duty and firefighting had usually made it easier to focus on the now but the panic attacks and nightmares are leaving him with nothing but pain and feeling out of control.

Wow….Hot and Hilarious!

This is my second book read by this author and I can’t wait to read more from Ms. Gina L. Maxwell. She has a unique style. Just unmistakeable. For me at least. This book was just hilarious as hell and super HOT.

Yeah….she writes super hot.

This book was also my second book with the military or former military, read..
and I have no words to describe the feelings. It’s amazing. But we all know that the war is in no way amazing. Too much hurt and suffering. T

Meine Gedanken zum Buch:
Ohne viel Erwartung bin ich in das Buch gestartet und gleich zu Beginn ging es gleich mal ziemlich heiß her. Der aufgrund eines Traumatas beurlaubte Ex-Soldat Erik / Wolf, trifft in einem angesagten Club eine umwerfende Frau, die es ihm sofort antut. Er möchte sie, zwar nur für eine Nacht, aber in dieser soll sie ihm gehören.

Zum Glück ist Olivia nur wegen eines One Nigth Stands in den Club gekommen. Um mit einem unbekannten Sex zu h

Hot for the Fireman is my third book by Gina Maxwell, I read two of her Fighting for Love books years ago and now I am wondering why I stopped reading her as I really enjoyed this and I hope there will be more in this series in the future.

I loved Erik/Wolf he is a proper alpha male, he lives for his team at BFD and ex Rangers squad. When he set his sights on Olivia he will do anything to make her his.

Olivia has started dating again but all her dates are dates from hell one weekend she meets a st

I was in the mood for a little firefighter action and I saw this book by Gina L. Maxwell on Netgalley and snatched it right up. It’s been awhile since I’ve read one of her books and I had to ask myself, “Why did I wait so long?” This is a solid man-in-uniform romance with a couple so likeable that the book is infinitely readable.

I must admit I have an affinity for this heroes like Erik “Wolf” Grady. He is mature and crusty. He is jaded bu

Hot For The Fireman was a smoking hot, burst into flames hot, set your kindle on fire hot read so of course I enjoyed the hell out of it.

It was also freaking hilarious and had me laughing out loud quite a bit. I loved the ribbing between the guys and the banter between Erik and Livvie.

The hero Erik is damaged, stubborn and so swoonworthy *dreamy sigh* while the heroine is feisty, stubborn and strong. Despite finding there stubbornness somewhat frustrating to the point where I want
Stop judging me.

I know I said I needed a break from contemporary romance but I figured this one (last one, I swear) would at least be a bit of mindless entertainment I had no expectations for and could enjoy it for that reason. And, mostly, it was. But Maxwell also made this kind of smart.

Yes, hot firemen, yes alphamales, yes sexytimes, but it also touches on PTSD and anxiety. The heroine is a therapist, the hero needs therapying (shut up) but -- thank all the heavenly cherubs -- they don't do

Once I saw Gina Maxwell was coming out with a new series about hottie Fireman I couldn't wait to read!! Wolf is on leave until he's cleared to come back to active duty. He suffers from PTSD and needs to be cleared by the therapist. Enter Olivia who he meets the day before his session. They hit it off really well not knowing what will be in store for them the next day. So once they get everything out in the open they decide to pursue a relationship. This book had everything I expect from Maxwell. ...more
Hart's Reader Group
This book was funny, fun, and hit all the right spots. The hero was sexy, and a REAL hero--fighting for his country AND saving lives as a firefighter. The heroine is also a hero--she helps those suffering from PTSD to acclimate back into civilian life.

They two together are flammable.

If I had one complaint it would be that Ms. Maxwell tends to run off at the mouth, making some of her paragraphs into long, gasping, drawn-out sentences. One big, long sentence over a single, sometimes confusing para

My oh my, Gina Maxwell writes some steamy scenes. <<
Erik and Olivia meet one night at a liquor store and end up having a one night stand. Imagine their shared surprise when they learn she is the one who has been assigned to help treat him for his PTSD. Erik knows one night wasn't enough and manages to talk her into going on three dates with him so he can convince her they should be together.

There were some laugh out loud funny spots, as well as some that broke my heart. I wanted to wrap E
It’s a one-night stand that should have had both parties going away satisfied. But coincidence (or the unlikeliest chance) has dictated that Erik and Olivia are going to meet again as therapist and patient as Erik works out his PTSD issues before getting cleared for active duty in the fire station. Early on, Gina L. Maxwell establishes that we’re looking at a firehouse of skirt-chasers and players—only the extent to which they tom-cat around varies—and it becomes clear that we’re going to see fi ...more

Ah! This book needs to come with a warning label: enough heat to singe! Firemen and military men are two of my favorite characters to read about and getting a twofer? Sign me up.

Is it overdoing it to use words like hot, sizzling and blistering to describe a book about a fireman and really passionate interludes? Maybe, but I got nothing else. HOT FOR THE FIREMAN is also very lighthearted and entertaining and the author deals with the issue of PTSD with the gravity it deserves.

Review: It's been awhile since I've read a romance that gave me all sorts of tingly feels but this one certainly did it!

I loved the set up of Erik and Olivia meeting each other and not knowing that they were going to have to work together in "real life". Erik's persistence at getting her to go out with him was nicely mirrored in the latter half with Oliv

4 Hot Crowns

Hot for the Fireman details the romance of Erik and Olivia, two broken souls who are trying to heal and start anew. There is still the heat readers love from Gina. L. Maxwell, but this one has a little more heart.

Both of these characters are reeling internally from tragedies in their past, both significant losses. Each has managed to semi-move-on in their own way. However, together, they figure out how to heal. Their love and dedication to each other and perseverance

If you were thinking that the title and cover of this book would give you a preview of the story inside, you are correct! This is a steamy romance, starring Erik 'Wolf' Grady. But what you don't know until you dive in is that he's not your typical fireman. Having been in the military prior to his current career, (and with some of his firefighting buddies also having been on the front lines with him), he's struggling now with some pretty serious PTSD. It's resulted in him being temporarily off du ...more

I enjoyed this book!

Been a while since I read romance invloving firefighters, though I don't really feel the fireman vibe from the Hero. I feel like he's still wound up with his army background and honestly that's a bit dsappointment for me because I picked up this book expecting story with fire fighting stunt in it.

But I still liked it mostly because it's filled with romance and the drama is pretty kicking. Look forward to read Dozer's story!

Ich finde das Cover sehr ansprechend. Das Paar darauf passt genau zu den Beschreibungen von Erik und Olivia, den beiden Protagonisten im Buch.
Den Titel hätte man auch nicht besser wählen können, denn er ist erstens eine Anspielung auf die Liebe und zweitens ein Hinweis auf Eriks Beruf.

In dem Roman von Gina L. Maxwell geht es um Olivia, eine Psychologin deren Fachgebiet die Posttraumatische Belastungsstörung ist, und Erik, ehemaliger Soldat und nun Feuerwehrmann in Boston.

Erik und Olivia begegnen sich in einem Club und schon sprühen die Funken. Erik fühlt gleich, dass sie etwas ganz Besonderes ist. Was genau er da gefühlt hat, weiß ich nicht, denn sie war nämlich eine 0815-New-Adult-Protagonistin.

*I received a digital ARC of this book in exchange for an honest review.*

I'm a sucker for romances that feature firemen so I was really looking forward to reading this one and it didn't disappoint. In fact, it was even better than I had hoped. If you're looking for a steamy, adult contemporary romance, then look no further because "Hot for the Fireman" is just as its title implies...HOT!

Erik suffers from PSTD. He's a war veteran who now works as a firefighter, but in order to be able to safely do his job again he needs therapy. Shortly before his first session he meets the woman of his dreams and has a hot night with her. To his surprise the woman, Olivia, is his new therapist. Erik thought he'd never see her again and even though she won't be able to treat him as a patient Erik isn't giving up on her. He wants to go on a date with her and will do everything it takes to make he ...more

Who hasn't had a fantasy about a hot night with a hot fireman? Come on, don't lie, you've dreamt about sliding down a fireman's pole, haven't you?

Erik "Wolf"Grady and Olivia Jones' story is super sweet, really cute, kinda sexy.

I am not going to lie, it is not the kind of story that we haven't all read hundreds of times already, but it is still one I enjoyed.

4.5 Stars! I truly enjoyed this story! Gina is a fairly new to me author. This is only the 2nd book I've read of hers, but I loved it, and I will definitely be reading more.

Erik "Wolf" Grady used to be an Army Ranger, and now he's a fireman. He's used to high stress situations, but a recent fire call served as a startling reminder, and started a downward spiral of PTSD and flashback issues for him, stemming from his time overseas. His boss has ordered him to see a shrink to deal with it before

Sexy, sweet and smoking hot fireman, yes please.

This book was exactly what I expected it to be. It was funny, it was sweet, it was on the light side even when our hero Erik has some issues he needs to work through, and it was HOT. Erik is the type of man many of us dream about. A hard worker, well mannered, someone who fought for our country, and is the size of a mack truck or Paul Bunyan. He has been given a choice; get help or get out. An incident at work has brought forth some pretty signific
