Rekindle the Flame
Rekindle the Flame (Hot in Chicago #0.5)
by Kate Meader

Cuddle up by the fire with the irresistible prequel to Kate Meader’s smokin’ Hot in Chicago series—originally published in the sizzling holiday anthology Baby, It’s Cold Outside—a superhot e-novella that will warm you from your head to your heart and all the way to your toes!

Chicago firefighter Beck Rivera always knew his destiny would be defined by two things: his dream to follow in the footsteps of his legendary foster father Sean Dempsey and his teenage passion for heiress Darcy Cochrane, the one girl who could both stoke and cool his fire. Loving her meant setting her free and breaking her heart—and his. But when a chance reunion at his family’s bar, sparked by a drunk Santa, places her in his path again, destiny can no longer be denied.

The last thing heiress-turned-tattoo-artist Darcy Cochrane needs is the rollercoaster of emotion stirred up by her first love: sexy, gorgeous man-on-fire Beck Rivera. But he always had such talented hands. And more talented lips. And...maybe one time can’t hurt. Then she’ll send him packing like he did to her all those years ago. But Darcy and Beck soon discover that nothing ignites holiday flames like rekindling a lost love...

5 out of 5 stars

I loved this! Fantastic story about reconnecting. Entertaining and sexy! 

Beck and Darcy are really great, interesting characters. These two have a serious history and I loved all the details about their past. I enjoyed how the past played into the present and how much they've grown and changed. Them coming together was wonderful. So passionate! There were so many sweet, playful, entertaining moments between the Beck and Darcy as well as some extremely hot ones. They have massive chemistry and a ton of pent up of lust and tension from the past. Once they connect, sparks definitely fly!

There were a lot of fun parts in this that has me grinning. Darcy's friend Mel was great and I loved her grandmother. She was an unfiltered, inappropriate, commenting trip! A truly fascinating character. I loved getting to see all the Dempsey siblings too. Gage always makes me smile. Loved seeing all the connections from the first two books. I read the book one and two before this pre-novella so I was excited to know all of Beck and Darcy’s history and how they came together as a couple. 

There was also nice amount of tension and emotion as well as a bit of drama mixed in making it a well rounded story with excellent writing. Awesome build too! The end was so sweet and romantic, Beck is a heck of a sexy firefighter. What a wonderful happily ever after! I love getting more of the Hot In Chicago series!
