SPARKING THE FIRE by Kate Meader is a warm, witty romance and is the fifth book in the sizzling HOT IN CHICAGO series. Sadly, this is the final book in the series and focuses on the last of the Dempsey firefighting family to find his happily ever after.

Wyatt Fox is a 6'3" tall, dark and badass ex-Marine firefighter who's doing light duty while he's nursing a shoulder injury from his latest rescue. He's assigned as a consultant to a movie being filmed about his firefighting foster sister, Alex, and, lo and behold, the star is none other than the hottest hookup he's ever had, actress Molly Cade. He's never forgotten the wild and wanton week he spent with her five years before. Molly is desperate for this movie to succeed. Her Hollywood sweetheart image has suffered from negative publicity, both from her failed marriage and leaked nude pictures. Imagine her surprise when she discovers her story consultant is none other than the man she spent five glorious nights with when she was a fledgling actress and that he's part of the Dempsey clan featured in her film. This follows their renewed connection and all their trials and tribulations in developing a deeper relationship.

Though I hadn't read any of the previous books in the series, I was able to follow this one without any trouble. The main characters are very different from each other, and as I read through the whole series (I purchased all the other series' books the minute I finished this one), I noted that each person stays true to his or her own distinct flaws and strengths. You can even recognize a character just from how they talk (similar to the unique characters in Kristen Ashley's awesome ROCK CHICKS series).

Pros:
1. The plot and subplots are realistic and are interwoven skillfully.
2. Every scene is important to the overall storyline, not just filler to increase page count.
3. Characters are all unique and stay true to their strengths and flaws throughout the series.

Cons:
None that I can tell.

Overall:
SPARKING THE FIRE is a delightful second chance romance starring an alpha firefighting male and a strong actress female, and their story is the perfect ending to the HOT IN CHICAGO series. If you like men-in-uniforms romances, this series should be one of your top choices to devour at the beach. So bon appetit and happy reading!
