Book Description

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?

4.0 out of 5 stars Bachelor Firemen of San Gabriel book 0.5 December 3, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition
So before I start this review I guess I'd better make a confession - the main reason I wanted to read this book was the cover. I mean come on - the picture is of a half naked, extremely hot fireman and he's holding a puppy! - what's not to love about that? My love of a sexy cover has got me in trouble quite a few times in the past though when the contents of the book don't manage to live up to my expectations so I'm very happy to say that isn't the case with this one. Even the book title fits perfectly because I can tell you right now that Kirk is One Fine Fireman! This was my introduction to Jennifer Bernard's writing and I can tell you now I'm already hooked on this series, in fact I'm planning on starting the next book, The Fireman who Loved me, as soon as I finish writing this review.

Fireman Kirk (known as Thor to his colleagues thanks to his Viking like good looks) has had a crush on waitress Maribel for years. His crush is well known about by the other firemen, in fact his attraction to her is the only reason they visit the coffee shop where she works, but they tease him mercilessly because he has never had the courage to act on his attraction towards her. Maribel has always found herself drawn to Kirk but shyness and the small matter of her engagement to another man has stopped her from ever doing anything about it. It wasn't until Kirk's absence from the shop for the last few months that she realised just how much she looked forward to his visits though. Kirk had his reasons for staying away from the coffee shop, and even now he is preparing to move across the country and knows there is no chance of anything happening between him and Maribel but thanks to a young boy, an abandoned dog and an arson attack the pair find themselves spending more time together than ever before.

One Fine Fireman was a pleasant read that left me with a warm fuzzy feeling and showed a promising start to a series of books featuring other sexy firefighters that I look forward to reading over the next few months. With its likable characters, sentimental storyline, and nice balance of action and romance, Jennifer Bernard gives readers a feel-good story that ends with a satisfying conclusion.

Maribel has thought of herself as engaged for years, but the man constantly on her mind is firefighter Kirk, aka Thor. Even though he says very little to her it's the highlight of her day and she misses him when he's gone. After he finally makes his move on her, with the help of her young son, it's almost too late to get her to admit the truth of her feelings before he's forced to leave town to save his life. Maribel is a kind-hearted character, a bit flighty at times and not as smart as her young son when it comes to her fiancée. I was left frustrated by her through the first half of the book because of her indecision in dumping her uncaring and superficial fiancée, especially after Kirk's loving declaration. In the next instant though I admired her unquestionable support of Kirk and his deeply scarred body. She made him feel strong again after his disease made him feel weak. She helped him feel like a hero again.

After a battle against cancer that has left his body scarred and his mind tired, all the sexy Kirk wants to do is finally be brave enough to tell Maribel how he's felt about her for ages. After befriending her son and a stray dog wiser than most humans he finally gets the chance. His heartfelt declaration made me swoon and made me like him even more.

3.0 out of 5 stars 3.5 Stars I Liked It November 15, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition
One Fine Fireman

As a prequel to the Bachelor Fireman series, this is an interesting little read. It is a tiny bit longer and more complicated than your normal prequel. Luckily, there are two other books out in this series so you can go right from this novella to the full-length novels.

This story is about Kirk "Thor" and the crush he has had on Maribel for what seems like forever. The only problem is that Maribel is shy AND engaged. Fortunately, her engagement is to an absolute idiot.
Maribel has also been crushin' on Kirk but since she has had bad luck with men and is ENGAGED she has not done anything about it...but she sure wants to.

Kirk has had skin cancer and is preparing to move to Alaska for his health and well being and the one thing he is going to miss is Maribel a budding artist with a son. But soon events involving Maribel's son, a stray dog and an arson fire will conspire to unite these two ships that keep passing in the night.

The characters are fairly well drawn, the action is there, but for some reason the sexual innuendo seems forced and the actually sex scenes while lovely are not totally smoking.

A worthy read but not an absolute must to keep up with the series. I fine short diversion for a couple of hours on a boring day.

5.0 out of 5 stars FIVE-ALARM FIRE! November 13, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition
Kirk nicknamed "Thor" (for his resemblance to the God), returns to the San Gabriel Fire Department after a bout with skin cancer. His plans are to finish up his duties and relocate to another area where the sun isn't so hot and dangerous for his skin.

Maribel works as a waitress at the Lazy Daisy, an establishment frequented by the scorchingly HOT Bachelor Fireman. Maribel is shy and has secretly had a crush on Kirk for years, not knowing that he had the same feelings toward her. With some help from her son and an abandoned dog the two of them find there is enough heat between them to cause a five-alarm fire. Many obstacles stand in their way, namely Kirk's plans to move, Maribel's engagement, will they overcome all obstacles to find real love?

One Fine Fireman is the prequel to Jennifer Bernard's Bachelor Fireman series. She packs a lot into the short format! It has wonderful chemistry, lots of steam and is full of action! I had the pleasure of reading this first and have since bought the other two books in the series and proceeded to finish them both off in just two days! Let's just say if you plan to read these keep a large glass of ice water handy!
