"Hearts on Fire"
Tagline: Kristen's heart fluttered as she spoke to the handsome fireman, but she knew he'd never call...
In a Nutshell: Kristen is checking the groceries of three firemen. The two in the front try to set her up with the third one. They get called away on an emergency and the third guy asks if he can call her. When she gets off work, she finds him waiting for her. They go out to dinner.
Observations: How could you not like this story. It has, not one fire fighter, but three! Yum.
I really loved how the three men joked with one another. The banter showed the hero's personality--humble, tolerant of his friends, and a good cook to boot.
Note the clever way Young introduced the characters' names--via dialogue and her name tag. No one had to introduce themselves.
There was a nice black moment when she gets off work, but it doesn't last long of course. And also notice how Kristen walked out with a couple of coworkers. Demonstrating personal safety is a plus.
I have nothing negative to point out. This one's a keeper.
