Review: To Protect and Serve by Staci Stallings

To save others’ lives, they will risk their own…

Houston firefighter, Jeff Taylor is a fireman’s fireman. He’s not afraid of anything, and no situation is too dangerous to keep him on the sideline if lives are at stake.

Lisa Matheson runs a semi-successful ad agency that’s on the brink of falling apart. Her employees are incompetent, and her schedule has become exhausting. When she takes on a client with a brilliant idea for a big conference, she thinks that maybe, finally this is her lucky break. However, the fire station wasn’t what she had in mind for finding conference speakers. When she falls for a handsome but shy firefighter, it’s possible that life might just be going her way for a change. The only problem is she can’t control Jeff and the death wish he seems to have…

I’ve been looking for an excuse to read this series by Staci for some time – ever since I picked this book up for free a couple years ago. But those of you who frequent this blog know… I read a lot. But almost all of what I read, I read because I’m reviewing it which doesn’t leave a ton of time for “just because” books. So when Staci asked for reviewers for book 3, I jumped at it.

From page 1, Stacy sucked me in. Drawing me into the world of Lisa’s marketing and Jeff’s firefighting. Jeff and his firefighting buddies are exactly what you’d expect from a group of firefighters. Hunky and protective. And always willing to go the extra mile for their friends.

Lisa and Jeff have to work their way toward each other. Lisa needs to learn to let go of her perfectionism and Jeff needs to realize he doesn’t control life or death, no matter his skill as a firefighter.

The technology – especially with Eve – did throw me a bit in this series until I realized they came out several years ago. Once I realized that, it was all good ;).
