Title: Under Control (Boston Fire #5)
Author: Shannon Stacey
Star: 5 Stars
After Reading Boston Fire 4 with its mystery I thought why not try Under Control. I do not like Romance stories they are all predictable and sappy.
This story starts off with a chance meeting with a control freak who has her life planned out from the second she wakes to the second she falls asleep. The man Derek is a fire fighter who life is always up in the air with kids and an ex wife.
Shannon Stacey is able to bring to life these two characters that struggles with their differences from life style to life choices. Every character has a purpose and a reason for being in the story. The characters feel real and the struggles will have readers feeling the characters pain.
The story slows down with sex scenes but several have very humors moments.
What I disliked was how the story seem to come to an end a little to abrupt.
Thank you to Netgalley and the publisher Carina Press for the Advance Copy of Shannon Stacey Under Control.
When faced with the opportunity to change shifts while staying in the same house, veteran firefighter Derek Gilman jumps at the chance. His new schedule means not working Saturdays, which means more time to spend with his two kids. His divorce may have been amicable, but being a firefighter and a single dad is a lot to juggle. And when fate brings a gorgeous, wealthy woman into his life, he’s pretty sure he can’t handle more than he already is.
Olivia McGovern loves plans. She planned to start her own business and planned its growth. It’s earning her seven figures now, but her personal life simply doesn’t exist. Getting trapped in a broken elevator figures in exactly nowhere, and freaking out in front of a sexy firefighter definitely isn’t on the agenda. Especially not one with two kids and an ex.
What would have been a random incident with an attractive stranger becomes something more when a charity event brings them back together. They’re from different sides of the tracks, literally—with friends, family and careers to consider. But as Derek and Olivia are discovering, chemistry doesn’t allow for plans, and love doesn’t bother with logistics.
