When a firefighter and the chef he’s been crushing on cross paths, sparks fly.
 
***
Divorced single mom Dee has never much believed in fate until now, but something about the charming and adorably awkward flirt, Rhodes, has her intrigued and wanting to know more.
Widowed dad Rhodes has no idea who he’s about to meet on the blind date his son set up but can’t stop thinking about the food vlogger he’s been crushing on like a hormonal teenager.
Add in nice-guy ex husbands, meddling co-workers, and food made to make even the strongest man melt, Dee and Rhodes soon discover that while their loved ones may have bought them together, somewhere along the way, fate turned into the real hero of their story.
Can these two singletons trust the hard and fast connection they’ve found, or will the pressure to live up to expectations stop them from being the life changers they both want and need.

“Dad, no pressure, but you know the third date is important, right?” Jake says, moving beside me.

I give him the side-eye. “You been watching those YouTube dating videos again?”

“Look, he’s got some good advice,” Marco says. “It worked for me, didn’t it?”

I snort and turn back to my son. “It’s not my first rodeo, kid.”

“Well, in fairness to Jake, it’s not like you’ve had to date for a while,” Gio says from where he’s running behind me.

Luca bursts ahead and turns to face us, running backward as he does. “I’m an expert at modern dating. Ask me anything—I’ll help you out, brother.”

“When did you last have a girlfriend?” I ask, earning a middle finger from him.

“Not all of us are as lucky as Marco, who goes to a damn house showing and ends up meeting the love of his life. Sheesh. That shit only happens in books, I swear.”

“Or movies,” Jake adds.

Luca nods. “Exactly.”

“And you would know this how?” Gio asks, not even breaking a sweat as we hit the one-mile marker.

“Reading romance novels. They’re surprisingly enlightening.” Luca says this like it’s completely normal. For others it is. For Luca Rossi—fuck no.

“Is that right?” Marco muses. “Let me guess. You’ve been stealing Mama’s bodice rippers? The ones with that long-haired, shirtless guy on the front?”

I turn my head. “Wait, are you talking about Fabio? My mom used to have those too.”

“Are we seriously running five miles talking about fucking romance books? Or are we gonna find out the goods from Rhodes about his love life?” Gio says, sounding far too interested in whether I’m getting laid or not.

Thank heavens for Jake tagging along. “Hello? Son here. Don’t wanna know deets about what Dad is or is not getting up to. As long as he’s happy—that’s all I need to know.”

Marco snorts. “Dude, you wanted your dad to meet someone.”

“Yeah. Doesn’t mean I need to hear the locker-room talk. Jeez,”

#NewRelease ~ “Show Stopper” Series: Chicago First Responders #1, by Author: BJ Harvey, Genre: Feel Good Rom/Com; Firefighter Romance, Release Date: August 31, 2020, Available Now ~ @bjharveyauthor @EJBooKPromos (See below for my Review)

Title: Show Stopper

Series: Chicago First Responders #1
Author: BJ Harvey
Genre: Feel Good Rom/Com; Firefighter Romance
Release Date: August 31, 2020


The first time they meet it’s by chance. The second is surely a coincidence. The third…it’s either destiny or he’s a stalker.
Renee Hamilton has a thing against men in uniform. In her experience, they play hard, lie harder. Marco Rossi has a thing for feisty brunette women with a backbone and a smart mouth, especially one in particular who’s playing hard to get.
She’s fiercely independent and wants better for herself.
He loves helping people so much it’s literally his job.
Worst case scenario, they crash and burn.
Lucky for Renee, Marco has a hose, he knows how to use it, and he happens to love putting out all kinds of fires; real or otherwise.

Monday
Marco – Hey. How’s your day going? Fallen into the arms of any men lately?
Renee – Good afternoon, Lieutenant. I’ve had no showings today. I’m in the office proofing marketing materials and doing boring admin stuff. Unless I trip over my own feet and my fifty-five-year-old broker John catches me, I don’t think I’ll be needing your rescue services today.
Marco – I wouldn’t rule it out. So, what heels are you wearing?
Renee – Should I take that question as you admitting to a foot fetish?
Marco – Isn’t it a little early in our relationship to be asking about sexual preferences? 
Renee – Isn’t it a little presumptuous to be using labels?
Marco – Touché.
Renee – Don’t think I didn’t notice you didn’t answer my question, Lieutenant. 
Wednesday
Marco – My sister just told me you’re a closet Brewers fan. Please tell me she’s screwing with me, otherwise it might be the first thing in your con column.
Renee – Brewers . . . they’re a football team, right?
Marco – On my way to a call-out now, but don’t think I’m going to let this one go.
Renee – No, definitely not a Brewers fan. Cubs for life, through and through. I fly the W proudly. Be safe, Lieutenant.
Marco – Always, princess.
Renee – Princess. . . I like it.
Marco – Just say the word and I’ll bow down at your feet willingly.
Thursday 
Renee – Lieutenant Rossi, I’ve heard you are a good guy. Do you have further testimonials to support this claim?
Marco – You sure know how to make a long shift go faster. And no, I don’t have a collection of references to hand out to future dates.
Renee – That is a shame. Word-of-mouth is key in my line of work.
Marco – Surely my meddling sister’s confirmation that I’m not a douchebag is proof enough?
Renee – LOL. Skye might just see you as a charity case that needs a woman’s touch.
Marco – I’m trying so hard not to go near that one. I will say that I’m not afraid to put in the work to get a woman’s touch on my own.
Renee – I’ll put that in your pro column then.

 

Marco – I hope you’ve got a lot of room on that side of the list. You’re going to need it.

My 📝Review📝:
5 Stars!
This was my first book from this author, and I loved everything about it!
This book was amazing in many ways AND I’m thrilled I found a new author to read. Show Stopper is a spin-off of one of B.J.’s series.’ She has many books that are interconnected stand-alone and I am definitely going to be checking them out. One of my favorite aspects of any novel are secondary characters. If written well, they can make the book greater. If not, then focus is only on the main H/h and as a result the book can become a bit monotonous. That is not the case with this book. There are many secondary characters who, have a story to tell, a background you want to learn about. Truthfully, with this book, one of the secondary characters I want to see get a happily-ever-after is Scotty. There are quite a few characters so I hope the author will give us his book.

Now on to Show Stopper.. At first, I didn’t get the title. What does it have to do with a real estate agent and a firefighter? When that bit was revealed to me, I swooned. This hero was amazing. I also loved that he was older, in his late 30’s. Marco was at a place in his life where meaningless hookups got old. He wanted something more. He wanted a woman to wake up with and come home to every night. But Marco didn’t want a Suzy-homemaker. No, he wanted a sassy, independent woman who knew her own worth and made sure he knew it too. The moment Marco met Renee; he knew she could be the one he’s been searching for. Renee was a great character and I loved her take no nonsense persona. She was strong-willed and a go-getter. But she was also kind, caring, loving and deep inside, a woman afraid of having her heart broken again. The relationship between Marco and Renee started off slowly, as it should. Their chemistry was scorching from the very moment they met, however they did not jump into each other’s arms immediately.

I’m not going into details so you can enjoy this book on your own and I’ve no doubt you will. This book has humor, light angst, if any, a great group of supporting characters and a swoon-worthy hero. Of course there is an antagonist as well which adds a hint of suspense. All of these elements add up to a truly enjoyable read. I definitely recommend this book; a great start to B.J. Harvey’s new series.

This is my honest and unbiased review and I thank you for taking the tie to read it. 🙂
