Publisher's Summary

Sequel to Redemption by Fire
Lee Staunton and Dirk Krause have been seeing each other for a couple of months when they get the bad news: The firehouse they work at will be closed unless they can come up with the money to complete some maintenance and repairs.
The union wants to stand and fight. There's just one problem: The only suggestion for how to raise the money is Lee's. And Dirk hates it.
Unfortunately, everyone else thinks Lee's "Chicken and Beefcake" dinner - which they'll attend in just their hats, boots, and fire pants - is a great idea, and Lee goes ahead with the organizing. But interference from the borough council and low ticket sales threaten to rain on Lee's parade.
If Dirk can't put aside his pride and stubborn nature for one night, it could cost both him and Lee their jobs - never mind their relationship.

The series continues - great narration

Dirk and Lee are now an out couple at work and though awkward, they are definitely getting more comfortable in that area. This book is more about saving the firehouse than anything else. The biggest personal issue is handling their first major disagreement.
Dirk is against Lee’s idea and the two sort-of have a face-off about it.
They still have lots of lovely physical enjoyment and it is interesting to see them work through their first “couples” fight. It was also really nice to see the boys in the firehouse rally together and show support for both Lee and the team. When Dirk does finally see the light, he ends up helping Lee and being super sweet about it.
Dirk is still battling with his father but we can start to see there might be light at the end of the tunnel for the their relationship.
I really liked this book (and the series) and I give it 4 stars.

Audio book:
Nothing more to say here – Peter did another great job, I even liked his female characters.

I really liked it and give it 4 stars.

Overall both audio and book: 4 stars

Great follow up


I absolutely loved this addition to the story. We got to see more growth from Dirk as he learns to support and be there for Lee. Lee shows that he's strong willed and not willing to let Dirk steam roll him.

The way all the men pull together to try to save their station was awesome. It was really special to watch it all come together while seeing out men grow stronger and learn more about each other as they did so.

The narrator did a fabulous job with the story and made it entertaining to listen to.

I can't wait for the next part of the story!

I received a free copy of this book to read for Inked Rainbow Reads in exchange for an honest review.
