The first book in this series is entitled ‘Flirting With Fire’. It was released in 2015 by the Pocket Books and features the main characters as Luke Almeida, Alexandra Dempsey, Gage Simpson, Brady Smith, Kinsey Taylor, Eli Cooper, etc. At the start of the novel, Kinsey Taylor is introduced as a PR guru, who likes to define herself by her work and not by her gender. Kinsey went through a bitter experience when she moved to Chicago from San Francisco to join her fiancee. Kinsey’s finance thought that she was not serious enough about supporting him in the high powered career and eventually dumped her to be with a more supportive nurse. Now, she is determined to keep her focus on her work as the assistant press secretary of the dynamic mayor of Chicago. Kinsey Taylor thinks that she does not have time to go through the inferior feeling. She keeps herself strong and motivated, and doesn’t show any interest in indulging in another relationship. But, when she comes across Luke Almeida, everything begins to change. Kinsey finds him very sexy. Luke is an important member of the foster siblings from the Dempsey family. This family has committed itself in the service of humanity. When Luke indulges in a bar fight with the police department of Chicago, Kinsey arrives at his house on the mayor’s orders and informs about the charges laid on him. But, Luke considers himself as the laws in the area and is in no mood to let her form the rules.

The next installment of the series is called ‘Playing With Fire’. Released in the year 2015, this book features the several characters from the previous book. Author Meador has set the story in Chicago, Illinois. At the beginning of the book’s story, Alexandra Dempsey is depicted as the only female in the firefighting team of the Dempseys. She faces a hard time from most people around her. Her male co-workers think that she is incapable of doing the job, while their girlfriends and wives think of her as a threat. Alexandra’s brothers seem overprotective of her, which she does not seem to like. Alexandra goes on to save the life of the town’s mayor, Eli Cooper, single-handedly, and with this she gets the respect that she had always wanted. Eli Cooper sees this as an opportunity to revive his diminishing chances of becoming mayor once again. He asks Alexandra to join him in his campaign. Soon, the two begin to feel the sizzling attraction towards one another. But, Alexandra Dempsey knows that Eli Cooper is her boss and there are certain rules which must be followed at all costs.
