Shannon Stacey s firefighters are always fantastic entertainment but I think Hot Response has so far knocked this series out of the park as a firefighter and an EMT get off on the wrong foot due to a small series of unintended misunderstandings Gavin Boudreau and Cait Tasker didn t seem like the kind of characters who would have worked out based on the blurb but the story that Stacey tells turned out to be uite a different one I never uite even got the idea that Gavin was only up for a good time and that he tuned out to be an absolute prize all about family thoughtful and considerate surprised me pleasantly as much as how into the relationship with Cait when that finally took off That their relationship was hampered by a large issue in Cait s life was going to be a conflict that I saw coming from afar though I was glad to see that resolved relatively uickly though a little abruptly What stood out however was the progression of their relationship none of it felt forced nor boring as I was engrossed in the day to day routines of them working as first responders and how their jobs intersected from time them working as first responders and how their jobs intersected from time time The episodes with their own families did made me cringe at times as were the very relatable struggles that both faced particularly Cait s though I could understand Gavin s own position on Cait s reluctance to move on In any case Hot Response made a perfect weekend read for me there was a comfortable mix of angst action and banter and I loved reading about the interactions between the whole fire crew My only tiny complaint is the rather abrupt resolution and end to the book though it s not something I should be nitpicking about because there s clearly of this beloved crew to come ARC by the publisher via Netgalley 35 starsIf ou re a fan of Shannon Stacey s Kowalski Family series ou ll definitely enjoy this book It s character driven romance about a cocky firefighter and an tough no nonsense EMS I enjoyed thid book a lot mainly because I m a sucker for she s not really my type trope Gavin and Cait s chemistry was awesome and I like how the book was basically just about dealing with normal relationship stuff like should we or shouldn t we move in together or meeting the parents and coworkers etc It s all very normal and refreshing ARC via NetGalley ARC received for reviewGavin and Cait pronounced Kate got off on the wrong foot since he called her ma am I don t get that maybe since I live in the south and it s good manners to call every lady ma am Any way she didn t like it but once they cleared up that misunderstandinghot hot hot But then ou throw in her emotional drama and issues with letting family go and ou get heart break Luckily it didn t last too long Great to heart break Luckily it didn t last too long Great to all the crew of Ladder 37 and Engine 59 again Shannon Stacey s Boston Fire series takes an in depth look at the lives and loves of those who work for the fictional fire department Ladder 37 I ve read and thoroughly enjoyed the previous books in this series and like how the author has balanced the seriousness
