Format: Paperback
The Hot Line by Cathryn Fox is broken down into three parts. Each one is centered on a sexy firefighter.

Part One: Sara and Mitch

Sara is in Chicago for her best friend's wedding when she meets bad boy Mitch Adams. The sexual awareness between them is instantaneous. His pal Nick (the groom-to-be) warned him to stay away from her; she's not one for casual flings and his fiancé doesn't want to see her best friend get hurt. Meanwhile, Sara's friend gives her a card with a number to call for a "fully equipped" firefighter to come and take care of your "fire." She calls the hotline and he comes to the house. She tells herself to remember to keep her emotions out of it, keep it purely physical, just for research for an article for the Chicago-based magazine she wants to work for. Mitch realizes she's special because, unlike all the other women he's been with, she cares about giving him a fantasy too. She cares about his pleasure, not just her own. Both are afraid the other just wants a fling, so they hide the deeper feelings that are developing. Never mind protecting Sara's heart - how can Mitch keep from losing his own?

Sara and Mitch's story is scorchingly erotic, some of the hottest sex I've read. Cathryn Fox really knows how to make her characters come alive. Just as I was bracing myself for some prolonged angst, the characters delivered a pleasant surprise with intelligence, honesty and quick thinking. I loved it.

Part Two: Jenna and Dean

Jenna designs lingerie, and Cassie (the bride-to-be) has asked her to put together a show for her friends before the wedding. She's been lusting over Dean's perfect body since the first time she saw him, but can't imagine he'd be attracted to someone like her.

Are you burning up? In need of some hunky firefighter, who carries a hose and knows his way around fires, to douse your flames? Then call 555-HEAT and help will be on its way.

At least thats what these heroines found in each of their stories. Three seriously sexually frustrated women, who happen to be in Chicago for their friend's wedding, find themselves attracted (thats putting it mildly) to the firefighter groomsmen. These men, aside from their firefighting duties, work to answer a *HOT LINE*. A woman calls, and a man is dispatched to take care of her needs asap. Whether she needs: ample research for a sexy story, to break out of her shell and bring out her inner exhibitionist (with more than one man), or she is in serious need of pampering and tender loving care, they've got a man for the job. And they guarantee to leave you satisfied.

This book was OK. Its geared towards those who are looking for short erotic reads. And if you can get past the fact that these men are, in essence, prostituting themselves then you might find this book extremely titillating. Basically it prescribes to the hot sex = love notion. Not much plot here, in fact there is not much talking at all. More like a ton of moaning and grunting/growling. Just lots and LOTS of sex. And if it wasn't actually stated that the hero's are fire fighters, the readers would have no idea. Because they don't fight fires! At least not those that burn down buildings.

As an aside, readers should be warned that the second story contains menage a trios (which is NOT disclosed on the back cover blurb -hate when publishers do that!). The characters are all interesting (that is, when they are actually talking) enough in their own way. And the plot moves along nicely.

I picked up this book on a whim and it was good but sometimes the language between the two lovers was so cheesy! I kept saying to myself 'A man would NEVER say that!'

Could anything be hotter than a hunky fireman head over heels in love? Yep. How about THREE hunky firemen head over heels in love?? Cathryn Fox delivers the goods in her novel The Hot Line, releasing March 4, 2008. This collection of sensual romances revolving around a firehouse in Chicago is just the thing to usher in the warmer months this spring!

This particular firehouse has a special number for women looking for a night of unforgettable passion with a fireman ready and willing to fulfill their fondest fantasies. But three firemen in particular stoke the blaze a lot hotter when they turn up the heat on the women of their dreams!


Working for a small town paper back in Trenton, Iowa is hardly the stuff a reporter's dreams are made of. When Sara Jack is given the exclusive number for The Hot Line, she knows she has stumbled into a career-making story that will guarantee her a job at a big Chicago newspaper. It's all about the story - that's the only reason she is calling The Hot Line. Yeah, right...

Mitch Adams is a no-strings attached playboy, good for a fling but not into relationships. That's the warning Sara's friend Cassie gives her concerning the sexy firefighter. Suddenly, nothing sounds better than an out of town fling with none other than Mitch himself, and The Hot Line is her ticket to a night of pleasure she is sure Mitch can deliver on. But flings have a way of becoming so much more when you least expect it...

Although I loved all of the men in The Hot Line, I think that Mitch Adams is my favorite. Maybe it is the whole misunderstood bad boy who has just never found the right woman thing he has going on, but he totally got to me.
