THE FIREMAN WHO LOVED ME

RRAH's THOUGHTS AND PONDERINGS:
Concerned about her granddaughter’s love life, Nellie decides to take matters into her own hands by buying a fireman at a bachelor auction for Melissa. But when there is a switch in bachelors, it proves to be even better than Nellie hoped for.
Though the blurb for the book may come off a bit cheesy, THE FIREMAN WHO LOVED ME is a good book. The characters don’t make you (regularly) yell at their foolishness, but hope for the best for them. The chemistry between Melissa and Brody, I thought, was fantastic. I liked the idea of the bachelor fire station, especially since the author doesn’t beat readers over the head with it. Melissa isn’t out to snag one of them, and it serves as more of a background joke. Bernard blends humor and sweetness in her series debut, leaving readers curious as how the rest of the Bachelor Fire Station will fall.
