Review ~ REKINDLE THE FLAME by Kate Meader

Rekindle the Flame (Hot in Chicago, #0.5)
by: Kate Meader
Series: Hot in Chicago
Genre: Contemporary Romance
Release Date: November 30, 2015
Source: Publisher ~ Simon and Schuster: Pocket Books

Cuddle up by the fire with the irresistible prequel to Kate Meader’s smokin’ Hot in Chicago series—originally published in the sizzling holiday anthology Baby, It’s Cold Outside—a superhot e-novella that will warm you from your head to your heart and all the way to your toes!

Chicago firefighter Beck Rivera always knew his destiny would be defined by two things: his dream to follow in the footsteps of his legendary foster father Sean Dempsey and his teenage passion for heiress Darcy Cochrane, the one girl who could both stoke and cool his fire. Loving her meant setting her free and breaking her heart—and his. But when a chance reunion at his family’s bar, sparked by a drunk Santa, places her in his path again, destiny can no longer be denied.

The last thing heiress-turned-tattoo-artist Darcy Cochrane needs is the rollercoaster of emotion stirred up by her first love: sexy, gorgeous man-on-fire Beck Rivera. But he always had such talented hands. And more talented lips. And...maybe one time can’t hurt. Then she’ll send him packing like he did to her all those years ago. But Darcy and Beck soon discover that nothing ignites holiday flames like rekindling a lost love...

Rekindle the Flame reminds me of why I love Kate Meader.  She brings heat and humor, with those darn it, “I knew I shouldn't drink and read moments.” I can only wonder if she's this funny in person.

Rekindle the Flame is a second chance love story at its finest.  As teenagers, Darcy Cochrane and Beck Rivera had a loved filled couple of months.  But the two were from different worlds, she is the daughter of one of the richest men in Chicago and he is the foster son of a legendary Chicago firefighter.  Beck was consistently reminded that he wasn’t good enough for her.  So, he broke things off in order for Darcy to have the life he felt she deserved.  Now, seven years later, the two are going to have a second chance.  

This is a novella that starts off the Hot in Chicago series and was originally part of the Baby, It’s Cold Outside anthology.  I had no idea how hot Beck and Darcy were going to be. Beck is caring and passionate and says things that just makes a girl swoon.  “You always have my attention.  When you’re in the room, you’re my sun.” Darcy also shows her caring and passionate side.  

Rekindle the Flame is best summed up with a quote from the book itself, “Girl walked into a bar, hooked up her destiny.”  This is definitely a perfect story to cuddle up with on a cold night.  But don't drink and eat while reading.  Grandma Cochrane likes to sneak up on you.
