“Stacey’s gift for writing easily relatable characters will hook readers and leave them eagerly waiting for the next installment.” —Publishers Weekly on Heat Exchange
From New York Times bestselling author SHANNON STACEY
Meet the tough, dedicated men of BOSTON FIRE—and the women who turn their lives upside down
Lydia Kincaid’s shipping back to Boston, but she’s not happy about it. She left to get away from the firefighting community—her father was a firefighter, her brother’s a firefighter and, more importantly, her ex is a firefighter. But family is number one and her father needs her help running the pub he bought when he retired. Soon, Lydia finds it hard to resist the familiar comfort and routine, and even harder to resist her brother’s handsome friend Aidan.
Aidan Hunt is a firefighter because of the Kincaid family. He’s had the hots for Lydia for years, but if ever a woman was off-limits to him it’s her. Aside from being his mentor’s daughter, she’s his best friend’s sister. The ex-wife of a fellow firefighter. But his plan to play it cool until she leaves town again fails, and soon he and Lydia have crossed a line they can’t un-cross.
As Aidan and Lydia’s flirtation turns into something more serious, Lydia knows she should be planning her escape. Being a firefighter’s wife was the hardest thing she’s ever done and she doesn’t know if she has the strength to do it again. Aidan can’t imagine walking away from Boston Fire—even for Lydia. The job and the brotherhood are his life; but if he wants Lydia in it, he’ll have to decide who’s first in his heart.

Feel the heat
Lydia Kincaid has known Aidan Hunt for many years. He is her little brother's best friend. He is four years her junior and that makes her feel old and responsible. She is afraid to start anything with him, since there are consequences. More for Aidan, than for herself.
Lydia came back to Boston to cover the Pub for her sister. She is working out what to do with her marriage and needed some help. The brotherhood of firefighters makes it difficult for Lydia and her sister. They support the men that hurt them because that is what they do. Who supports the women?
Their father was also a firefighter. Now he is a bar owner who seems to make his daughters mad. They need their father and all they get is a stone wall of brotherhood. What about when they need his support?
Lydia plans all along to go back to Concord, NH where she lives now. She hates her job but is happy to be independent of the things that made her miserable in Boston. Who knew she would fall in love with another firefighter?
Aidan has been wanting Lydia for so long. Now he actually has a chance at a future with her. It only costs his friendship with his best friend. Doesn't matter, she is worth it. I love the banter, and the sexy times are HOT!

A Sizzling Read
What a sizzling start for a new series, a book that I could not put down. Shows the true brotherhood of the fireman and strong family bonds of the Kincaid family. Loved the banter between the fireman of Engine Company 59. The chemistry between Aiden and Lydia was sizzling, I enjoyed how they tried to keep it a secret among family and coworkers. I enjoyed the added romance of Lydia's sister Ashley.
Looking forward to reading more from Engine Company 59. I received this book from Netgalley for an honest review.
Do these women own a backbone?
It's a preemptive review, I know, but not even 100 pages in and I'm beyond frustrated with these weak female characters and myself for buying this book. Here's hoping for a little willpower both for these women and for me to think before I buy.
