    I make no secret that I have a bit of a soft spot for a firefighter Who can resist a rescuer of fellow beings and fluffy kitties? If a romantic sexy and emotional romance is what you're after The Firefighter's Appeal is that and does indeed contain a firefighter with plenty of appealElizabeth Otto has brought us a story encompassing love loss grief and acceptance Both Garrett and Lily are strong and determined with pasts that have shaped them into individuals who have in common than they realise They have realistic insecurities and vulnerabilities and you can't not feel for them “I promise you’ll know with every touch every kiss how much I don’t take this moment with you for granted” Garrett was a sweetheart I adored his honest nature Yet I have to confess throughout the first 60% I felt something was missing and no matter how hard I tried I couldn't put my finger on what it was The chemistry between Lily and Garrett was evident from the opening chapter and brought heat wit and some fight the storyline flowed nicely although I did feel that some moments were drawn out a little and the secondary characters added important content plus an additional emotional angle But it still niggled away as I continued reading and then it happened the missing something appeared and I spent the latter part of the book a little desperate That's what was missing because I know that Elizabeth Otto can write a story that makes your heart ache and your throat hurt because you might just blub That was what I needed I needed the feels And when I got them the overall story really was kicked up a notchOverall The Firefighter's Appeal was an enjoyable read that wasn't heavy despite having emotional content and detail that does tug on the heartstrings Well worth reading Reviewed for Read Your Writes Book Reviews Copy received courtesy of the author for an honest unbiased opinion

    45 Appealing StarsThis was such a great read I loved both Lily and Garrett and couldn't wait to find out if the pain from their pasts could be healed enough to let them have a future together I loved the writing style the depth of the characters and the emotion packed storyline – all things which seem to be consistent in Elizabeth Otto’s booksSo we have Garrett otherwise known as Mr September a nickname he’s earned from his spot on the fire department’s charity calendar He’s not really a player but he’s so emotionally closed off that spending than a few nights with the same woman just isn't in his game plan Keep it short and sweet no promises and upfront about the arrangement and you never have to worry about getting close to someone who you might lose one day Of course being part owner of a bar also gives him enough women to choose from although lately he really just hasn't been interested Garrett was such a contradiction – he couldn't deny his attraction to Lily was something but you could tell how scared he was to pursue anything permanent with her And despite his reservations he couldn't seem to stay awayand I Ioved watching the sparks fly between these two and Garrett's shameless pursuit of LilyThen we have Lily She has one rule – never get involved with a firefighter With the pain from losing her sister having her fiancé walk out on her and dealing with a father who can’t even seem to start the grieving process Lily has had a hard time dealing with things And then she finds out the hottie behind the bar who she had a make out session with is also Mr September the firefighter and really could things just get any worse? Of course the attraction between her and Garrett is off the charts and has her rethinking things – at least in terms of a short term fling When Lily is hired by Garrett’s uncle to come up with plans for a remodel of their bar Lily and Garrett are forced to spend time togetherand you just know that it’s going to be next to impossible to ignore that attraction I just loved Lily With all she had been through she was strong in so many ways even though she was so emotionally scarred Her business persona was wonderful and I loved the fact that she was such a force to be reckoned with in the typically male dominated world of general contracting My heart ached for her as she struggled with her relationship with her father but was lightened by her ability to give so much of herself to othersThis book was also full of a wonderful cast of supporting characters Lily’s best friend Macy was a hoot and it would be sweet for her to get her own book – hint hint Lily’s dad ultimately made me smile Garret’s uncle and all of his friends at the fire department added such depth to the book and even the woman at the junk fair with the skeleton keys added so much to the storyThis book had everything I love – great characters a wonderful story that had me feeling the emotions with the characters some hot and steamy times and a hero and heroine who were easy to like and root for as they found their way to each other Another great read by Elizabeth OttoI was given a copy of this book from the author for an honest review

    Holy Smokethis is a really good bookElizabeth Otto’s A Firefighter’s Appeal is a heartwarming love story and I really enjoyed it I liked the characters the story arc and the resolution The book is about Garrett Mateo and Lily Ashen He’s a charming gorgeous seemingly carefree firefighter determined never to commit and she’s a strong willed fire survivor wanting to have some fun The problem? She blames firemen for her sister’s death Uh oh They are both afraid of getting too close but they can’t help doing just that Add in that he needs her to design an expansion onto his bar so he can help take care of his uncle’s family and she needs his business and ultimately the closure he can provide and these two can’t stay away from each otherThe story is intense There is a lot of sadness because of what they have both gone through and you get both POVs I loved the supporting characters; they add such depth to the story There is one very moving scene at the end that is really powerful I laughed spiders and I cried when they each realize who is on the other side of the wall when Garrett’s worst fear is almost realized It was also very moving watching Lily come to terms with her sister’s death and move on from some things that have happened in her past I liked Lily Occasionally I was frustrated because I wanted her to stop dwelling on the past Thank goodness she came to her senses I would have liked a little heat between the sheets and maybe one scene of just enjoyable carefree times between Garrett and Lily because it was such a heartfelt book and I wanted them to have some funThis book is really well written I’ve mentioned before how much I enjoy Elizabeth’s writing style and how she immerses you in the world she knows She’s an EMT in real life and her husband is a firefighter Her inside knowledge is invaluable to this story She knows the thought process fears and actions of a firefighter and feelings of victims of a tragedy and passes those on to the reader Be it cowboys and ranching or firefighters and emergency situations Otto knows how to draw you in She puts a lot of loose threads out there and once again pulls everything together beautifully at the end You can’t help but be charmed by Garrett and want Lily to get the happiness and unconditional love she deserves Let’s hope one of the wonderful side characters Mikey? Macy? gets a book of his or her own because I’d love to burn through another book like this pun intended Moisture Meter 3 Story 4 stars

    This is the emotionally romantic story of Garrett and Lily Lily lost her sister in a devastating house fire a year earlier and is still coming to terms with this loss She meets Garrett and is instantly attracted to him only to discover that he is a fireman and she has sworn off ever dating one after her personal experience The uestion is whether she can let go of the past and look to a new future with GarrettI loved this story Both main characters were very appealing to me Lily is a bright talented woman working for her father's construction company She is trying hard to put the loss of her sister behind her Meeting Garrett shatters her perception of firemen and forces her to look deeper into her feelings about what happened Garrett is portrayed as an attractive strong confident man who also is dealing with fire related trauma from his past and his current career He's sworn to not get emotionally involved with a woman knowing the heartache that loss can cause Yet something about Lily attracts him beyond just her looks scaring him at the same time as it entices him into a relationship with her The alternating points of view give insight into both Lily's and Garrett's thoughts and emotions as their relationship progresses The sexual tension between them is obvious from their first meeting and leads to some steamy love scenes The secondary characters are key to the plot development and to the enjoyment of the story adding tension humor and heart tugging moments There were some scenes that I found uite stressful to read This is a testament to the writing of the author that she is able to immerse the reader into the firefighting experience It's obvious that the book has been well researched and that her own personal experience adds to the realistic situations portrayed Combining a well written story with suspense tension humour sex and romance this book will satisfy readers of contemporary romance on all levels 5 stars

    This was a good read once you got into it I did have a hard time because I am familiar with the fire service though working in EMS and because of her feelings towards firefighters do to her lack of understanding it was hard for me to get into without getting annoyed Once Lilly began to understand the workings and consider that she might have feelings and that it was OK it started to pick up only to have Garrett ignore his feelings because he didn't want anyone to go through what his mom went through when his father died in the line of duty to also come to the realization that no matter what you do things can happen and you can not prevent it from happening just by pushing someone away The ending was awesome and I am hoping for of these two

    I enjoyed this read so much Their attraction is immediate and powerful but they both have reasons not to pursue it but fighting it might be too much for either of them This is a great story that is well written with wonderful characters that pull you in If you like really Hot firefighters this one is for you I highly recommend it
