All Fired Up by Morticia Knight

Shawn can’t decide whether he wants to punch or kiss Trent. Kissing wins.

The party never ends in Las Vegas, but neither does the danger. Shawn is the new foot patrol officer on the Strip and he’s ready to take on the town and keep the peace. Once he spots Trent, who is a hunky firefighter at Station 32, Shawn wonders whether he can take him on too.

Trent is dedicated to his job, built tough and is a no-nonsense man of few words. At a local blood drive, Trent eyes a handsome new officer but doesn’t dare get too close. After his boyfriend’s life was snatched away in the line of fire, he couldn’t bear the agony of such a loss again.

Trent’s over-protective instincts kick in during an emergency call and he embarrasses and angers Shawn in front of their fellow officers. Too late, he realizes he’s falling for the sexy man. But has he already destroyed any chance they might have at something more?

Once they spend time together away from the stresses of their jobs, they find they’re not just compatible – they’re combustible. However, right as their relationship deepens, the threat of terror escalates on the Strip. The underground vigilante group, the Citizens Against Immorality, have raised the stakes. Will Shawn and Trent be their next targets?

Shawn is new to the Vegas strip beat. While he is excited to be with a partner who gets him, he is also not quite sure about his new crush, Trent.

Trent is a firefighter who loves his job and can't help but have a protective streak a mile wide inside of him. He isn't expecting to find someone he's interested in, but when he sees Shawn, he can't help but be attracted.

When Shawn finds himself in some tricky spots, despite being qualified and capable of getting out of them, Trent comes riding in and rescues him. With Shawn questioning whether or not his coworkers can take him seriously while he’s constantly battling being rescued, he will have to decide whether or not he should pursue a relationship with Trent, or let his crush go.

Trent is struggling with how to be in a relationship. He knows that Shawn is more than capable of handling himself, but when he sees Shawn in trouble, Trent can't help but jump to his rescue. And with the fires around Vegas heating up, Trent has to figure out who is setting them and why.

This story is a slow burn relationship that has aspects of poor communication, strange expectations, and protective streaks in both alpha males. However, they work. They complement each other and have a chemistry between them that is relatable and real. I really enjoyed watching them figure out how to make a relationship work. I can't wait to see what happens next.

I couldn’t resist the lure of a romance between a cop and a firefighter. Shawn is a beat cop and sees all sorts of crazy things working the Vegas strip. The action from Shawn and Trent’s dangerous jobs combine with their romance and relationship drama to make a good story.

Trent is overprotective of Shawn which doesn’t go over well when they both attend the same emergency and Trent oversteps his bounds and causes problems. While overprotectiveness doesn’t work in public, in private, Trent fusses over Shawn in a way that is sweet and bossy at the same time.

All Fired Up is a story where the couple goes from attracted and hot for each other to deep feelings in a flash. It didn’t bother me. This isn’t a story that takes time to develop the characters and plot. It is fast moving and for me it was a quick and entertaining read on a cold rainy Saturday.

M/M Erotic Romance author Morticia Knight enjoys hot stories of men loving men forever after. They can be men in uniform, doms and subs, rock stars or bikers – but they're all searching for the one (or two!) who was meant only for them.

When not indulging in her passion for books, she loves the outdoors, film and music. Once upon a time she was the singer in an indie rock band that toured the West Coast and charted on U.S. college radio. She is currently working on more installments of Sin City Uniforms, The Hampton Road Club, as well as the follow-up to Bryan and Aubrey's story from Rockin' the Alternative and Dylan and Zero from Biking Bad.
