“Waiting On” Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine that spotlights eagerly anticipated upcoming releases.
This week’s spotlight is on:
MELTING POINT (Hot in Chicago #1.5)
by Kate Meader
Release Date: August 31, 2015
Things are heating up at Engine Co. 6 in this original e-novella from Kate Meader’s sizzling Hot in Chicago series! Superhot playboy firefighter Gage Simpson has one particular man on his mind: Brady Smith, a recalcitrant, moody chef who makes Gage melt from the inside out. Features a sexy sneak preview of Playing with Fire!
Firefighter Gage Simpson has it all: the job of his dreams, the family of his heart, and no shortage of hot guys lining up to share his bed. “Fun and easy” is his motto—and it’s kept him sunny through a painful upbringing and steered him away from trouble. But when trouble comes knocking in the form of a sexy, scarred, tattooed chef with a harrowing past and zero communication skills, Gage can’t help but be drawn to the flame.
Brady Smith isn’t fun. And easy isn’t in his vocabulary. When cocky Gage swaggers into his restaurant kitchen, the former Marine-turned-five-star-chef is blindsided by the firefighter’s beauty. Then confused that this golden guy with the sparkling blue eyes and the body of a god might be interested in him. As desire flares and temperatures rise, Gage and Brady will have to figure out if the heat between them is just a temporary flash—or the beginning of something real.
Why am I waiting?
It’s Gage’s book. And Brady’s. If you’ve read book 1 in the series, you would have felt the heat and tension between these two secondary characters that just begged for their own story. And lo and behold, and to the granted wishes of fans such as moi, Kate Meader is releasing a novella just for the two them. I think this is her first M/M romance. I’m so excited.
I recently finished reading Him by Elle Kennedy and Sarina Bowen and that was my first M/M book, well aside from some manga stories I read back in college, and I really loved it. I’m curious as to how Kate Meader would write hers.
What are you “waiting on” this Wednesday?
