Things are heating up at Engine Co. 6 in this original e-novella from Kate Meader's sizzling Hot in Chicago series! Superhot playboy firefighter Gage Simpson has one particular man on his mind: Brady Smith, a recalcitrant, moody chef who makes Gage melt from the inside out. Features a sexy sneak preview of Playing with Fire!

Firefighter Gage Simpson has it all: the job of his dreams, the family of his heart, and no shortage of hot guys lining up to share his bed. "Fun and easy" is his motto—and it's kept him sunny through a painful upbringing and steered him away from trouble. But when trouble comes knocking in the form of a sexy, scarred, tattooed chef with a harrowing past and zero communication skills, Gage can't help but be drawn to the flame.

Brady Smith isn't fun. And easy isn't in his vocabulary. When cocky Gage swaggers into his restaurant kitchen, the former Marine-turned-five-star-chef is blindsided by the firefighter's beauty. Then confused that this golden guy with the sparkling blue eyes and the body of a god might be interested in him. As desire flares and temperatures rise, Gage and Brady will have to figure out if the heat between them is just a temporary flash—or the beginning of something real.

Groan!! This book should come with a warning label!!

Chef Brady Smith has it bad for firefighter Gage Simpson. Not usually one to succumb to the good looking playboy type, Brady is nonetheless in lust with literally THE most gorgeous man he's ever met. And Gage is just as rocked by Brady, except that Brady's unchecked PTSD has them as a non-entity, and hoping against hope that he'd be enough to break through Brady's shell. When a bike accident has Brady needing help, Gage steps up and the two find it impossible to stay away from the other. But Brady's going to have to make some big moves for Gage to take another chance on him, especially since he can't seem to stop hurting the man he's fallen in love with.

MELTING POINT is a short novella and book 1.5 in the Hot in Chicago Series. I typically like a woman to be involved with my guy-on-guy lovin' and usually steer clear of the straight-up queer, but damn I'm glad I picked up this book! I loved book 1 in the series, Flirting with Fire, and couldn't wait for more by the talented Ms. Meader. And she didn't disappoint with this sweet and sinful treat.

MELTING POINT deals with the aftermath of Gage and Brady's all too-brief relationship and the chess moves they make to repair it. They both want more, but Gage won't put his heart out there again while Brady is trying to gain the courage to go for it. Gage's self-deprecating view of himself was both hilarious and a little sad; he's not just this vapid, gorgeous, sex-focused princess firefighter. The two of them are so great together, the chemistry absolutely through the roof! And WHEEWWW, grab the fan, because these men bring the HEAT, ladies! This is one smokin' story that combines erotic MM humpin' and humor with one hell of a storyline.

Bottom Line: A sizzling guy-on-guy book that'll make you drool!
