I’m a single father. Ex-Military and now a Firefighter.
That means I’m trained to find danger in every situation.
So how did I not see Bailey coming? She’s the spark that starts an inferno. She’s the fuel for the passion in my heart. She’s been nothing more than a friend since we were kids, but fuck me, she’s all grown up now.
It’s her that I go to for comic relief after a

I absolutely loved this story! A hot, single dad, and his best friend's little sister, well, I thought it'd follow the usual trope pattern. But Captain Hotness completely won me over! The dual POV, the story telling, and the personalities of the characters were convincing and felt so real, as if they were friends of mine. I loved Jeremy, he was simply a good man with a supportive family who hadn't figured out how to move on. Bailey, in the meantime, has grown up and become a mature young woman w ...more

I had never read anything by this author and I think he has potential. It was a read ok.
The book ends around 21% of the file and the rest are other books which I had no interest to read at the moment.

Another short story plus others :(

Well either I'm not seeing the reviews correctly or others aren't saying that this book is a short story collection.
The story of Jeremy and Bailey aka Captain Hottness would have been given 3/3.5 stars. It was a good story with good characters, romance , sexy times, emotions and hea with epilogue. It also ended at about 21%. Maybe it's the new trend to put multiple books together but I have never liked short stories and I don't like going into reading a book th

Emotionally engaging erotic romance. Lots of emotional angst and apprehension about the future. Erotic sex scenes that when written from the man's perspective are different from what I have read before. I enjoyed that the characters have families and friends and that the story includes those parts of their lives. ...more

Captain Hotness is right!

Weston Parker’s latest novel is a spectacular display of heart-wrenching feels, frustrating madness, humor around every turn, coupled with a sweet ovary busting single dad still in mourning, to a copious amount of inferno blazing sexiness that even this Captain of the Firehouse could not quell the blazes too!

Oh, I liked this one, no, Wait, I did not just like this novel, I.LOVED. IT - now the kind of love have for this yummy, emotional beast of a tale... Hmm, well let

Ahhh...this book had me by the heartstrings. This is the story of Bailey, who has been in love with her brother's best friend, Jeremy, forever. However, Jeremy found his soulmate in Laila, who died two years ago. This book had some funny parts (the slutty blind dates set up by his mother, brownies made by the ex), and sexy times, but mostly, it was about the strong connections we have with our family, friends, and loved ones and what happens when those connections are broken. How can we take a r ...more

I don't know if I have the right words to explain how much I loved this book. Could Jeremy get any hotter? Former military, firefighter, single father. I mean really, how's a woman supposed to resist any of that, let alone all of it in one dynamite package. Bailey's just so sweet and wonderful and perfect for him. How's a man supposed to resist the woman who's loved him forever but will still make him work for it? This pair was so amazing together. Bailey's love gave Jeremy and Austin a safe pla ...more

Couldn’t put it down!

Every book keeps getting better and better. This has everything. All the good feels mixed in with the sad. The hotness level is off the hook and your kindle may smolder . I thought this was going to have a lot of similar aspects to other stories that are out about best friends sisters/ virgins but it’s so much better!
The story is amazing and my heart went out to Jeremy.. ( perfect book boyfriend material by the way!) I plan on re-reading this bit of goodness because it’s jus

The Book Junkie Reads . . .
Sexy, hot, single dad and a firefighter . . . Captain Hotness was just putting things mildly.

Single dad, Jeremy was mourning his wife's loss. But he coped in ways that may turn a lot of women off. But hey he was hot, sexy, and satisfying. So why not look over his propensity to sleep with everyone that's willing. I almost felt that Bailey was getting the short end of the stick here.

This was an emotional read with ups and downs.

I couldn't put this book down. I felt for Jeremy and his loss of his wife. He didn't want to let her go even after two years. But oh man when he sees Bailey for the first time in ten years he doesn't even recognize her. Bailey has loved Jeremy for so long but she is scared of not being good enough for him. I loved how they came together and how fast their connection became strong. Loved how Austin took to Bailey so fast. He is such a cute kid. I really enjoyed this story. ...more

Jeremy...

Jeremy lost his wife and the love of his life two years ago, but found it impossible to move on.
Bailey was the innocent baby sister of his best friend and she had been crushing on him for years.
When he saw her "all grown up," sparks flew!
Fun, exciting story, with a few good twists!
I thoroughly enjoyed it!

4 hot flaming stars. It is the story of love, loss, second chances, healing, laughter, and learning that your heart can mend, and find room to love again. Totally enjoyed how the characters come alive. Enjoyed the storyline immensely. You can never go wrong dealing with a sexy alpha fireman🔥❤️‼️

There were 5 stories in this book, so I slugged through to the end. Here goes:
Dr Feel Good...4 stars
Risky business and Toxic....1 star....The other books 3 stars..
The dominant themes for the h characters are that they must love and be very proficient at eating bananas without gagging and must love back door actions. I wish the author would spend more time developing the stories...The author either dismisses or conveniently under plays important aspects of the H character's emot

Jeremy lost his wife 2 years ago and hasn’t been ready to move on. His mother insists on setting him up on the most horrible blind dates to get him back into the dating pool, but no one has caught his attention so far. As his mother is always reminding him, he’s not just got himself to think about. He also has to find someone who would be a good potential step-mom to his young son, or there’s no point in pursuing a relationship.

Bailey moved back to her home town and is starting out on her own. S

Predictable but still worth a read

Jeremy is a widow who can’t seem to readjust to life after the death of his wife. He has a little boy that he needs to live for, a sister that keeps him from drowning in the dark and (for better or worse) a meddling mother that’s convinced all he needs is another woman to love.
Bailey has loved Jeremy since she was young. He’s her older brothers best friend and about as perfect as a man can be...at least to her. Add in that he’s an amazing father, ridiculously h

Hey there. I'm Weston.

I'm a former firefighter/EMS guy who's picked up the proverbial pen and started writing bad boy romance stories. I co-write with my sister, Ali Parker, but live in Texas with my wife, my two little boys, a dog, and a turtle.

Yep. A turtle. You read that right. Don’t be jealous.
