One Fine Fireman by Jennifer Bernard

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?


One fine Fireman is the adorable prequel novella to the Bachelor Firemen series, we are introduced to the bachelor curse on the San Gabriel station 1 firehouse and the men who work there.

Kirk a sexy firefighter from station house 1 can't seem to speak more than a couple words to Maribel when the firefighters come into the cafe she works at, he is just tongue tied. Kirk wants to tell Maribel he has been crushing on her, he want to ask her out on a date however Maribel is engaged and Kirk isn't going to be poaching another mans girl.

Maribel thinks that Kirk is the hottest of the firemen from station 1 that comes in. She watches for him to come in everyday, remembers how he takes his coffee and what kind of muffins they take back to the fire station. She has been engaged for 6 years now and they have never set a date, will she finally take the leap and marry her long time fiance or will she finally let Kirk know she finds him attractive.

Kirk and Maribel must make a move soon as time is running out.

Hot firemen, single mom, cute little boys, puppies and a celebrity photographer all mix to make this a sexy, funny and touching story. The story line is established by setting the stage that the characters have been in place and doing the same things and that things have been that way for a while. Actions must happen before a dead line is the form the catalyst takes to inspire action in both Kirk and Maribel's case. The plot is well played and the characters seem to stay true to themselves. I found the novella delightful and a fun, quick read. It certainly sets up the characters and the fire station for the novels that come after and gets you ready for more. With a few steamy scenes it a spicy read but not anything erotic.
I give One Fine Fireman 4 out of 5 flowers.
