This is the first book that I have read from the author and let me say that I am HOOKED!!These characters are amazing and funny. These two characters are really relatable and perfect for each other. Being able to read the story through a females viewpoint of being a firefighter was something that I had not experienced or seen before when looking for romance novels. I cannot wait to read the next book in the series and see who will be the main character next. This author writes amazing books, if you love a good romance novel you should read this!

Quick sports firefighter reluctant romance read. Lived up to the steamy title description 🔥

4.75 rounded up.

Fairly quick romance read. Definitely has those steamy scenes that make you yearn for more.

There’s 3 POVs in this novel, the FMC, the MMC, and the Chaplain (love his quick chapters and his internal monologue). This novel is set in ‘95 so there is limited technology compared to contemporary romances and I thought the author did a fantastic job with it (it’s like watching Buffy from the beginning all over again and both loving the reminiscence and cringing at it).

Loosely based on the ’95 Cleveland Brown football season. I loved the football references and the background, showing that the author not only did her homework but really understands the game. It’s still easy to read too which isn’t always the case. I really enjoyed reading Trevor’s mentality about his job, his relationship with Leslie, and the difficulties of standing behind a strong woman and supporting her without smothering her.

The ease of reading and understanding also goes for the firefighting aspect. I loved the fact that Leslie is a spitfire and is fighting for her right to be a firefighter in the mid-90s. We see some softer sides of her, such as her dancing background and learning how to open herself to a relationship with Trevor, but overall she is a kick-a$$ woman taking names with no regrets.

At 150 ebook pages, this novel reads fast but leaves you feeling completely satisfied. I will certainly be searching out the other books in this series!

Cw: hazing, violence against women, 90s nostalgia.

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

This was my first read from this author and I’m definitely excited to read more. From page one I knew I’d sink right into this story and I was right. I found that I simply couldn’t put it down once I got started. There’s plenty of steam and romance but the overall storyline is great to. The characters are complex and relatable making it so easy to picture their world around you. Leslie is a character that you can’t help but root for and connect with. The chemistry between her and Trevor jumped off the pages. The author makes sure you feel this story for a long time. Four big stars and highly recommended!

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

This is only for those over 18 due to the adult nature of its content.

Leslie McClunis is a firefighter and a ballerina which make a perfect combination for discipline, stamina, flexibility and determination, not to mention that she is as strong in mind as well as body. Trevor Hampton is a star defensive end and has the build to back it up, at well over six feet tall and built almost as wide, he has the team in his heart and a determination not to lose at anything.

Leslie is being her usual grouchy self at a class she has to take to help her to act more “feminine” or at least that is what her chief has suggested it for, it’s not like she wants to be that, she prefers to be treated as one of the guys and have the same rules as they do. However, her firehouse have other ideas, but when a man sits next to her and is just the tall, dark and handsome she is looking for, she is more than just distracted and she decides there and then to propose they go next door for a drink.

Trevor is taken aback by the fiery redhead who has just propositioned him and normally he would just politely say no, but something intrigued him and when they go for that drink, she is extremely forward and has him wanting her as much as she apparently wants him. After a night of passion, Trevor wakes up on this pint sized wildcats bed, only to find that she is at work, but after what just happened, he is determined to make it more than a one night stand.

Leslie is more than happy just to hit and run, so when Trevor tracks her down and insists that she goes out with him again, she is both annoyed and flustered, this is definitely not how things are supposed to work, but he is having none of it. Will Trevor be able to convince Leslie that making this more than just a one night fling is the right thing to do, or will she kick him to the kerb faster than he can say firefighter? This is a steamy romance with a whole heap of action on the side which will hook you in as the story plays out and keep you there until the end.

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

This I the first book that I have read by this author and also the first book in the Metro-Gen after hours series. This is a short steamy romance that has humor suspense and drama. I loved the Characters and their quirks.

Leslie McClunis is a firefighter that loves cuss like a guy and kick her one-night stands to the curb in the morning like a guy. She isn’t looking for Mr. Forever just Mr. Right now. She doesn’t have time for a relationship

Trevor Hampton is football’s biggest, baddess defensive end. So, he isn’t used to being shown the door. After Leslie shows him the door, he realizes he wants her for more than one night? He vows to do anything to get his firefighting wildcat.

Can Trevor break down Leslie’s walls? Can he convince her that she can be herself while with him? Can they over come the obstacles in the way?

You will really need to read this story in order to find out….

This was a good romance and a short read that was steamy, full of spice and fun. I had not read any of this author’s work before, so I really wasn’t sure what to expect when going in to the book. Trevor and Leslie had a steamy, spicy and fun chemistry about them. I loved how their two worlds collide a female firefighter and an NFL football player coming together after a one night steamy stand. I liked the many different perspectives through out the book. I loved how much Trevor cared and loved Leslie enough to go and help her when she didn’t want the help being an independent women. I look forward to reading more of this author’s work and seeing if we hear anymore of Trevor and Leslie than the future references at the beginning of the book.

Before reading this book I had not read any of this author’s work but I was intrigued by the blurb and thought it looked like just the type of book I’d like. Thankfully I had made a good choice as I really enjoyed this book and if this is a typical example of the author’s work then I’m sure this will be a fantastic series.
Firefighter Leslie McClunis is a little ball of fire all on her own but despite this is the butt of cruel jokes and actions by her fellow colleagues at the fire station. Trevor Hampton is an NFL star who wants Leslie McClunis and isn’t used to women not falling at his feet and doing anything he wants.
I really enjoyed reading Leslie and Trevor’s story. When Leslie isn’t fighting fires, she’s creating fires all of her own, in the bedroom with Trevor (or any other room for that matter). This book is HOT and not just from the fires.
I loved how Trevor fought to get his woman and then fought to get her to allow him to fight for justice for her. He may be a big tough NFL player but he’s really a sweet guy who wants the world for his woman and isn’t scared to fight to get it.
I really enjoyed this book and look forward to reading more of this series.

Wildcat: A Steamy Firefighter Romance by Carina Alyce

4 out of 5 Stars

This fast moving, steamy romance is the story of Leslie McClunis, a retired ballerina turned firefighter. Leslie is not welcomed at her firehouse due to outdated thinking. Leslie is fighting for her place in the department as she is battling fires and, unfortunately, her own teammates.

Trevor Hampton was looking for a little stress-relief when he attended a painting class. Instead, Trevor met a fiery Leslie. Trevor couldn’t get over Leslie’s tenacity. It was something that he rarely saw, even on the field as a NFL defensive end. The attraction was so strong that he tracked Leslie down after what was supposed to be a one night stand. He couldn’t get her out of his mind. She was a distraction he didn’t need. What he didn’t know was that she was the best thing for him.

As Leslie and Trevor’s relationship heats up, so does Leslie’s fight at the firehouse. After an incident at a fire, there are shenanigans at the firehouse that leave injuries on all involved. Trevor tries to convince Leslie to let him use his fame to help her, but she says no. Trevor finds a way to help without putting a bigger target on Leslie’s back.

The story is fantastic. It moves fast and you better be ready to keep up.

The author balances romance and steamy, erotic passion perfectly. The storyline felt both realistic and unbelievable, though several of the unbelievable events were factually based. The author found a way to develop the characters without being predictable. I can’t wait to read additional books from the series.
