The first installment in Hot in Chicago, a brand-new, sizzling series that follows a group of firefighting foster siblings and their blazing hot love interests!

Savvy PR guru Kinsey Taylor has always defined herself by her career, not her gender. That is, until she moved from San Francisco to Chicago to be with her fiancé who thought she wasn’t taking her “job” of supporting him in his high-powered career seriously enough—and promptly dumped her for a more supportive and “feminine” nurse. Now, as the new assistant press secretary to Chicago’s dynamic mayor, she’s determined to keep her eye on the prize: no time to feel inferior because she’s a strong, kick-ass woman, and certainly no time for men.

But that all changes when she meets Luke Almeida, a firefighter as searingly sexy as he is quick-tempered. He’s also the second oldest of the Firefightin’ Dempseys, a family of foster siblings who have committed their lives to the service—if Luke’s antics don’t get him fired first. When Luke goes one step too far and gets into a bar brawl with the Chicago Police Department, Kinsey marches into Luke’s firehouse and lays down the law on orders from the mayor. But at Engine Co. 6, Luke Almeida is the law. And he’s not about to let Kinsey make the rules.

Top Ten Books on my Spring TBR List…

 

 

Flirting with fireFLIRTING WITH FIRE by Kate Meader

I received my ARC last week and I’m so excited to read this one. It’s book 1 in Kate Meader’s new series.

 

 

dark triumphDARK TRIUMPH by Robin LaFevers

I loved Book 1 so I can’t wait to read the second book featuring Sybella. And Beast.

 

 

 

 of silk and steamOF SILK AND STEAM by Bec McMaster

I admit that I have had the eARC of this since late last year and I really, really wanted to read it since it’s finally Leo’s story. Unfortunately, real life can get in the way of reading sometimes. I hope this spring would change that a bit.

 

 

silver bastardSILVER BASTARD by Joanna Wylde

It’s a brand-new series from Joanna Wylde but it features a character we’ve already been introduced to in the previous book. Oh, Puck! I can’t wait to finish his story (since I already started reading my e-ARC).

Tessa Bailey’s New Adult series kicks off with Chase Me. Woohoo!

top ten of 2014

Top Ten of 2014: A Week of Looking Back is a year-end meme hosted by Jamie @ Two Chicks On Books, Rachel @ Fiktshun, Mindy @ Magical Urban Fantasy Reads, and Nancy @ Tales of a Ravenous Reader

It’s Day 5, the last day of this awesome week talking about the best of the best, and I’m counting down the Top Ten Books I’m Looking Forward to in 2015. I’ve actually done this list earlier this month as part of a weekly meme and you can check out my list HERE. But I’m tweaking that list a bit for this post and included even the books I’ve already received the eARCs of.

There are so many good books to look forward to in 2015. It’s going to be another amazing year for reading!

 

the winner's crime

 

The Winner’s Crime by Marie Rutkoksi

I have the eARC of this one and I can’t wait to find out about the next chapter in Arin’s and Kestrel’s lives.

 

 

 

vision in silver

 

Vision in Silver by Anne Bishop

I really liked Written in Red, though it took a while before I got into the story. But by Murder of Crows, I was in love with all these characters that I can’t wait to find out what happens to them next. And, Simon and Meg, of course.

 

 

of silk and steam

 

Of Silk and Steam by Bec McMaster

I also have an eARC of this one and I’ve been waiting for Leo’s story since the second book, I think, so I cannot wait to read this one. Plus, hello there enemies-to-lovers trope.

 

 

 

once upon a rose

 

Once Upon A Rose by Laura Florand

I need me some new Laura Florand every year (or twice a year, or thrice a year!). If she writes it, I’ll read it. It’s as simple as that.

 

 

 

Flirting with fire

 

Flirting With Fire by Kate Meader

I’ve been without a full-length Kate Meader read for far too long. I can’t wait for this first book of a brand new series. I’ve read the novella that serves as a prologue to this series and I really loved it.

 

 

 

shards of hope

 

Shards of Hope by Nalini Singh

Oh my, we’re now on Book #14 of her Psy-Changeling series and it’s poised to be the ending of this particular story arc. I can’t wait to read it! It’s Aden and it’s a Psy-Psy pairing, or more specifically, an Arrow-Arrow pairing. I really can’t wait!

 

 

once upon a marquess

 

Once Upon A Marquess by Courtney Milan

A brand new series from one of my favorite HR authors. I am excited about this one. I know she’ll give her readers unconventional and yet achingly beautiful stories and lovely characters again.

 

 

i'll meet you there

 

I’ll Meet You There by Heather Demetrios

I’m so excited to read a Heather Demetrios book. I’ve heard great things about this one and her other book. I hope I’ll love it.

 

 

 

crushed

 

Crushed by Lauren Layne

I so want to read Michael’s story already. He’s been breaking my heart since Isn’t She Lovely and even more so in Broken. I want him to get his own HEA.

 

 

 

chase me

 

Chase Me by Tessa Bailey

I need more Tessa Bailey stories in my life. Seriously. The premise of this book sounds so hilarious and sexy, I can’t wait to read it.

 

 

 

 

Honorable Mentions:

Anticipation by Sarah Mayberry
Rock Hard by Nalini Singh
Lady Midnight by Cassandra Clare
P.S. I Still Love You by Jenny Han
The Friend Zone by Kristen Callihan
Trade Me by Courtney Milan

 

There you go, the top 10 (++) books I’m looking forward to in 2015. Do we have the same books to look forward to? How excited (or impatient like me) are you to read these books? What would you have in your list?
