7 Exciting Firefighter Romance Books

Firemen Love Story

Firefighters are superheroes, and I saw them as bigger than life. The only time you see a firefighter crying is when one of their coworkers dies. Romance books with firefighters show us the emergency scenario where the firefighter tries to save people from fire and how their love life suffers when they are in an accident.

The story’s heroine feels inner pressure and fear because the hero always takes challenges in death. So, it’s a pure romance where the heroine takes risks and supports the fireman/hero. I have some books recommendation. Stay with me if you want to know about them.

7 Firefighter Romance Books

Love interrupts the professional life, or profession interrupts the love life. There are many professions where you can feel big or little pressure to maintain your relationship. Among them, doctor, military, and firefighter are the toughest professions where you must face many difficulties and challenges to keep your romance or relationship alive. We love this profession and take them as the most respectful. So, to give respect and learn more, I read many firefighter romance books. I’ll talk about them. Let’s talk!

Firefighter Romance Books

1. Hero (Morgan Brothers)

Hero is the first book in the Morgan Brothers series. The story follows a firefighter, Colby, who is in the hospital because he has gotten hurt in a fire accident. The heroine, Lydia, is his physical therapist. So they meet in the hospital, which is instant love, but they have banter. We don’t see a ton of the firefighter aspect in here. There is a little bit of her dealing with the fact that he is going out into danger every time he leaves because her last relationship did not end well.

So they struggle with that a little bit. But it is an excellent book and a good start to the series. The entire series has multiple romance tropes like gay, lesbian, friends-to-lovers, smut, etc. The plot, writing style, and character development are fantastic, but there is a lack of chemistry. The steam level is medium, and I loved the heroine for her strong attitude. Read the book if you like firefighter romance with love at first sight.

2. Best Laid Plans (Lucky in Love)

Best Laid Plans is slow-burn friend-to-lover erotica. Our hero, Gabe, is a firefighter who is very much a playboy willing to help others. When he meets Arden, he is more than willing to help her. They are good friends, and she needs experience being more flirty. So it ends up being a lessons and instruction book where Gabe teaches her things, and things get physical.

Arden shows up at the firehouse, and their fun firemen romance starts. The narrators perfectly describe all the scenarios and inner feelings. So I enjoyed the audiobook. If you want to read a good girl bad boy love story, I recommend checking this out.

But she keeps making things happen in her house to call the fire department.

The fire department has to come over to her house a couple of times, and it’s funny. Their interactions, how they slowly warmed up to each other again, and their relationship was cute.

So, it was a cute romance that was unfinished in high school, and get a second chance to finish it nicely.

4. The Two-Date Rule (Smokejumper)

The Two-Date Rule is another romantic comedy. The story follows two main characters, Willa and Grady. Willa is at a bar, and there’s Grady in a firefighter uniform, and she thinks he is a stripper. He is late for work and forgot something at the bar. Grady is a legit firefighter, and he is super intrigued by her and asks her out. So they hit it off well quickly. But she has a two-date rule where she won’t go on more than two dates with the guy because she doesn’t want to get invested.

So they are super into each other and keep making excuses as to why they need to hang out without it being a date, which was cute. Grady is a smoke jumper. So he goes out on planes and jumps from planes to fight forest fires. He’s gone for several days at a time without a way to contact her necessarily. So that is an obstacle in their relationship, but it works out for them.

As a career-driven woman, Willa tries to focus on the future, but she can not hold her for falling in love with a firefighter. We see quite a bit of the smoke jumper aspect here, which I enjoy. The author makes the story dynamic through the character’s profession and shows the emotions of long-distance love.

So things were awkward at first, but they have a lot of chemistry. Garrett asks her out, and they keep it from her dad at first, but he also has daughters. So he has to be away for days at a time when he’s on his shift. Lauren’s very respectful of that and understands that he wants to spend time with his kids because he’s divorced.

But she accidentally mistakes him for a stripper gram and completely embarrasses herself. He is cool with it and laughs it off. After the inspection offered to fix some things around the place so that they could pass the inspection because they were not going to pass. They spend more time together because of that. His sisters will not leave him alone about dating.

So to stop them, he tells them that he’s dating Lexi. Now he has to get Lexi to come with him to show his sisters that he’s in a happy relationship. They have a fake dating weekend as well. The story was creative and fun, but the plot was a little bit confusing for me. I also expected the deep chemistry between them. Overall, you can enjoy it.

Winnie has gotten out of the shower, and she doesn’t have clothes on. So it was quite an awkward encounter, but he had his daughters with him. So it was funny. She develops a sweet relationship with his kids, and I loved the book so much for the age-gap, single-dad neighbor romance.
