REVIEW: One Fine Fireman by Jennifer Bernard

A smoking-hot prequel to Jennifer Bernard's fabulous Bachelor Firemen series. If you love the novels of Rachel Gibson and Bella Andre, then this is for you!

Kirk, a.k.a. Thor, one of San Gabriel's infamous Bachelor Firemen, certainly lives up to his nickname. He's tall and handsome, with a chiseled body worthy of any Viking god. But he'd give it all up for one glance from her.

Sweet, shy Maribel has no idea that Kirk's been pining for her. There's nothing he'd like better than to sweep her off her feet and show her just how exquisite their love could be. But Kirk has a secret, and he won't let anyone get close, least of all the sexiest woman he's ever met.

Can a feisty little dog and an even feistier little boy help these star-crossed lovers find the passion they both so richly deserve?


One Fine Fireman is a sweet and surprisingly hot book. Kirk, aka Thor, is a member of San Gabriel Fire Station 1. The station is supposedly cursed in the romance department, meaning the handsome firefighters aren’t supposed to find love. Kirk and Maribel have been attracted to each other for six years. Kirk is too shy to say more than five words to her. Maribel has been in a long distance relationship for the whole time and is also engaged. Thus making Maribel off limits in his mind.
One day Maribel’s nine-year-old son, Pete, finds a puppy and follows it to an abandoned warehouse. The same warehouse where Kirk just happens to be working on his motorcycle. Kirk ends up taking Pete back home, where he is actually able to get more than five words out. Maribel is allergic to animals and agrees that Pete can take care of the dog as long as Kirk helps him and the dog stays away from the house.
Over time Pete and Kirk form a pretty strong bond. This relationship leads Maribel to FINALLY question her relationship with her fiance’, Duncan. Duncan is self-absorbed, lives on the East Coast and doesn’t really seem to be very fond of Pete. He hardly finds times to visit Maribel on the West Coast and NEVER wants to spend time with Pete.
Through Pete’s relationship with Kirk, Kirk and Maribel grow closer. After a while Kirk confesses his secret, which makes Maribel care for him even more. After it’s discovered that Maribel is no longer engaged, the two start their romance. When tragedy strikes, Maribel realizes just how important she and Pete are to Kirk.
One Fine Fireman is a really good start to this series. We get introduced to future characters. My only complaint is that I wish there was an Epilogue so I could found out what happens with Kirk, Maribel and Pete a year or so down the line.
