From Publishers Weekly
This firefighter anthology starts off with a fizzle: Rachel Firasek&'s Smoking Stilettos, featuring a pair of stunningly immature characters and almost no sexual chemistry. Fortunately, it flares to life with some kinky heat in Sabrina York&'s Saving Charlotte, setting the pattern of ups and downs with some seriously hot stories (such as Lynn Townsend&'s Big Trucks) and some that aren&'t much more than smoke and bluster (such as Adele Dubois&'s Hook Me Up). Likewise, the firemen vary: there&'s the sweet hero coming home to make hardcore love to his worried girlfriend in Shoshanna Evers&'s Falling Ashes and then there&'s the jerk willing to take advantage of a terrified woman in Cynthia D&'Alba&'s Something&'s Burning. Despite the variation in tone and quality, any woman who has ever had a fireman fantasy can probably find one or two stories to enjoy. (Oct.)
"Hot firemen, need we say more?"
"Super sexy stories with some mega hot men."

Night Owl Reviews, Top Pick
"Eroticism (from the Greek meaning "desire") is generally understood to refer to a state of sexual arousal or anticipation of such - an insistent sexual impulse, desire, or pattern of thoughts, as well as a philosophical contemplation concerning the aesthetics of sexual desire, sensuality and romantic love. As French novelist Honore de Balzac pointed out, eroticism is dependent not just upon an individual's sexual morality, but the culture and time that individual resides in as well. In our time it means Smokin' Hot Firemen: Erotic Romance Stories for Women, an anthology of seventeen romance stories designed to appeal to the female imagination. Compiled and edited by Delilah Deviln (who has herself published more than sixty erotic stories) Smokin' Hot Firemen: Erotic Romance Stories for Women is very highly recommended for mature women who appreciate a deftly written and imaginatively erotic short story."
Midwest Book Review
"At times you are able to get a real sense of the atmosphere, from the firemen’s stations to the crumbling buildings they heroically venture into. The male characters are often well described, making it easy for you to form mental images of them, and help fuel your personal fantasies too."
"Delilah Devlin has collected and selected some very hot stories. Sabrina York writes about a fireman who saves a woman who has been tied to the bed; there is a stripping dancing fireman, a parachute jumper and a forest fire fighter just to name a few themes here. These stories are not just erotic; they are 'smokin’ hot'."
Reviews by Amos Lassen
"This collection is a fun read that can be dipped in and out of as the mood takes but one that definitely puts an emphasis on the more romantic side of sex rather than the physical."
For Book's Sake
"Firefighters are among the most popular characters, and why wouldn’t they be? After all, they heroically risk their lives while running to our rescue in the most dire of circumstances."
"There is something uniquely attractive and arousing about firefighters, and whatever your particular taste or temptation may be, I’m sure you’ll find a story to satisfy it in Smokin’ Hot Firemen."
