From the Wicked Heat Blurb:
First off, I loved being back in Ella Frank's Chicagoverse. It really feels like coming home when this universe was one of the series that started my love for MM Romance. We've met Ryan a few times in past books. He makes an appearance in the Prime Time Series as Alexander's PA and again in the Intentions Duet as Gabe's BFF and roommate. I was super happy when it was announced we would be getting his story.
Another thing that made me happy was getting to see more of Firehouse 73. That's Kieran from the Dare to Try series old stomping grounds. Ryan's love interest, Mr. Jameson Clarke, is a new firefighter who just accepted a permanent position there. The guys at Firehouse 73 are a fun bunch and I look forward to reading more scenes with them in the future.
I adored Ryan. He is friendly, open, and easy to like. Jameson, however is not. In fact he is the complete opposite. He's gruff, keeps to himself, and makes it as hard as possible for people like him. He tries the same thing with Ryan, but it seems the powers that be have a different idea because Ryan and Jameson just kept getting thrown together as if by fate. Every new scenario where they ran into each other I just kept thinking OMG again!? Stop fighting it and kiss already!! When it does finally happen, they didn't leave me, or each other, disappointed.
There's no cliffhanger ending in Wicked Heat (THANK GOD!!). However, the book does end at a turning point for the relationship between the MCs. Jameson can't seem to escape his past and he has a long way to go before the two of them can come together for their HEA.
