Synopsis (Goodreads):
When Jamie Rutherford takes a temporary assignment as lieutenant of Boston Fire’s Engine 59, she doesn’t anticipate any problems. She’s been in the fire service for a long time and, even though she’s fairly new to Boston, she knows how to make any firehouse her home. What she’s not prepared for is her reaction to firefighter Scott Kincaid.

Scott is looking for a wife. It’s been a fun ride as a single guy, but he’s tired of being the third wheel, and nearly losing his brother-in-law finally made him realize just how much he wants a family of his own. When the new guy at the firehouse turns out to be a capable, confident and very attractive woman, his plan is completely derailed.

Hooking up with a fellow firefighter has never been part of Jamie’s plan, but she’s tempted by Scott—even though getting involved with him could tarnish the reputation she’s worked so hard for. And Scott can’t stop thinking about Jamie, despite the fact that she’s his superior and not sticking around. Chemistry can crush the best-laid plans, though, and while Jamie and Scott might not be each other’s future…there’s no resisting the right now.
Thoughts on Fully Ignited: Okay. I wasn't thrilled with how book 2 ended (it felt very abrupt to me), but I was VERY pleased with this one. VERY. All caps. That's how you can tell I'm serious.

On the surface, getting involved with a co-worker (even worse, someone working under you) did NOT look like a good idea. Even with Jamie's assignment being temporary, it could have caused some major backlash for her. But Scott's smoldering appeal got through all her defenses and the two of them ended up getting a little physical. Heh. I'm joking. They got a lot physical. On many different occasions.

Scott's been the free-dating stud in previous books, so he had a tough time convincing his firehouse brothers he was trying on celibacy for a while. For the record, the celibacy didn't last all that long that's to Jamie and all that smokin' attraction. (yes, I can continue to squeeze fire-related word play into my reviews whenever you blink too long. Thanks for asking.)

They get happily naked, they have to deal with fallout, etc, etc. For the record, I LOVE the camaraderie between the firefighters and how they have each others' backs when the chips are down. I liked seeing familiar faces and catching up with couples we've see before. (I'm a sucker for that, to be honest.)

All in all, a solid ending to the series with all the closure my little heart desired.
