When chef Roman Geary meets heart-throb firefighter Jacob Niemczyk, he’s willing to give love a chance. But this new-found romance may burn out before it even gets started as Roman struggles to accept Jacob’s high-risk career. Philippa Grey-Gerou stirs up a sizzling love story in her contemporary romance High Heat, book 2 of the Some Like It Hot Collection.
With a flourishing catering business and an acclaimed restaurant to his name, chef Roman Geary had finally made it. Until his dreams go up in smoke, literally, when a fire devastates his kitchen. He finds a temporary home at the catering hall of the local fire company, putting him in close quarters with the attractive firefighter Jacob Niemczyk, who proves himself as adept in the kitchen as he is at fighting fires.
While Roman is skilled in the kitchen, he finds romance a bit trickier, but the two find their way into each other’s arms despite missteps and inconvenient interruptions. Their relationship looks to be off to a smoking start until a massive fire makes Roman question how willing he is to risk his heart to a man who constantly risks his life.
They say that if you can’t stand the heat, you should stay out of the kitchen. But when food is your life and your heart is on the line, sometimes it’s the safest place to be.
High Heat is a “men in uniform” story about hunky fireman Jacob who quickly falls for restaurateur Roman, whose restaurant and catering business has burned. Roman ends up renting the large commercial style kitchen and space at Jacob’s fire house to maintain his busy catering business. Sparks fly between the two men, despite Roman’s initial undeserved snippiness with Jacob.
I particularly like Jacob’s character – he’s unafraid to grab hold of the happiness and promise of a future together with Roman, despite that they’ve known each other for a short time. Roman is more reticent, and a much less bold character. The story is well paced, but there’s maybe a few too many prolonged cooking scenes for this length novella.
Overall this story is a sweet story of two men who find each other due to unlikely circumstances, and take a leap of faith together toward their own happily ever after. High Heat is a nice read for any time you want a quick, easy story of two good men who get their happily ever after.
