The Wedding Dilemma (Mile High Firefighters) Book 1 by Mariah Ankenman

The Wedding Dilemma (Mile High Firefighters) Book 1 by Mariah Ankenman


My life has always been pretty predictable. Run into burning buildings, save those in distress, be a hero. Shoot the shit with my fireman buddies, come home, and do it all again tomorrow. Little did I know that a random SOS call from a woman stuck in a plaster cast with nothing underneath (I swear I only caught a flash of skin) would throw me for a complete loop. 

Until I see the flighty artist again. At my mom’s engagement party. To her dad.

Suddenly the unpredictable woman I couldn’t stop thinking about is my soon-to-be-stepsister. Yeah, the same one I mortified when I accidentally saw her a tiny bit naked. This should make family gatherings way more interesting.

Except when your mom’s as loaded as mine is, you can never fully let your guard down when a guy comes sniffing around. So I can’t help but be suspicious, even though his daughter’s the perfect blend of beautiful and wild. As we spend more time together, prepping for our parents’ wedding, we both agree that maybe there’s nothing wrong with having a little bit of fun in the meantime. But if she knew I was investigating her dad on the side, she would never forgive me…

My Review…….

You can always rely on Mariah Ankenman to make you both chuckle and swoon.

What’s better than one fireman? Three firemen coming to Tamsen’s rescue….. 

Tamsen is a free spirit, an artist with an up coming art show. The last thing she needs is to be stuck in one of her show pieces….. 

But the upside of being rescued, she gets to drool over three fine specimens of manhood! Hey, she’s an artist, she can appreciate the human form. But the form that captures her eye and her breath is the gorgeous Firefighter Parker…..

Parker is firefighter, him and his mates do the saving thing down to a fine art. They work well together and have a really close bond. 

But he’s not thinking at all clearly when faced with a cutie in plaster, he’s blown away by the feelings she causing him, but he’s at work, and he really shouldn’t mix work with fun. 

He hope he catches up with her in the future, he’d love to get to know her better. 

The two are thinking about having a little fun, when the unthinkable happens, they meet at their parents engagement party! 

Parker’s mother and Tamsen’s father have fallen for one another after a six month whirlwind romance. 

And now they have to organise a wedding shower for their prospective parents! So maybe romance won’t be on the cards! It’s wrong! Isn’t it?! They will be siblings, albeit half…..

But those sparks keep flying between Parker and Tamsen and when they decide on a little light no strings fun, both are blown away by their feelings. 

But Parker has a hidden agenda 

He needs to be sure his mother isn’t being taken for a financial ride. 

So whilst pursuing and having fun with Tamsen, he’s checking out her father! Let’s hope she doesn’t find out…..

I didn’t really think of them as a forbidden couple, both were old enough not to be living at home, and there was no blood ties. 

I love the way this author gets inside the characters head, I really like hearing their thoughts. The wit is sharp and funny. The comebacks are quick and the passion is oh so naughty! 

Parker is your all American hero, Tamsen is your quirky arty type. 

And I devoured the whole book in an afternoon. 

First in a new series and I’m hoping Parker’s buddies get stories.
