This Story Is Sexy

Publisher's Summary

As the only female firefighter at Engine Co. 6, Alexandra Dempsey gets it from all sides: the male coworkers who think she can't do the job, the wives and girlfriends who see her as a threat to their firefighter men, and her overprotective foster brothers who want to shelter their baby sister at all costs. So when she single-handedly saves the life of Eli Cooper, Chicago's devastatingly handsome mayor, she assumes that the respect she's longed for will finally come her way. But it seems that Mr. Mayor has other ideas....

Eli Cooper's mayoral ratings are plummeting, his chances at reelection dead in the water. When a sexy, curvaceous firefighter gives him the kiss of life, she does more than bring him back to the land of the living; she also breathes vitality into his campaign. Riding the wave of their feel-good story might prop up Eli's flagging political fortunes, but the sizzling attraction between them can go nowhere; he's her boss, and there are rules that must be obeyed. But you know what they say about rules: They're made to be broken.

Very frustrating listen

One of my pet hates is when the author tells us repeatedly that a character has certain traits but then makes their actions constantly contradict what the reader is being told. For example in this book we re told that the female lead is kickass, strong, sassy and well loved and supported by her family. Unfortunately she acts uncertain, folds easily when a man tells her to change her behaviour and is attracted to a man who gets turned on by imagining hitting her because he doesn’t like her choices.
The whole book was just frustrating and annoying - there is nothing sexy about a woman being treated like a child by a man, its just insulting and disrespectful.

Not Like Book 1

In book 1, the main female character was smart and assertive. Unfortunately in the 2nd book, firefighter Alex (sister of Luke) was weak and easily manipulated by the good looking mayor. Since Alex was loved and admired by her foster brothers and adopted father, it made absolutely no sense that she would have zero self-respect or confidence in herself. Boring!

Bad narrator.

I couldn’t get through the first chapter. One of those narrators that’s monotone most of the time and leaves the end of every sentence hanging.

couldn't finish :/

I couldn't finish this one. The story is okay but the narrator struggles with the task before her and her emphasis is awkward.

Story good. Narration not so much

The story is good but the narration wasn't what I have come to expect. I believe I would have rated it higher with better narration. Those of us who listen to a lot of books understand the importance of the narrator.
