As one of the city’s few women firefighters, Lindsay Pfeiffer battles much more than towering walls of flame. She struggles on a daily basis to be accepted by her mail peers and treated equally. The task is further complicated by her long denied attraction to Matthew Callahan, a fellow crew member who also happens to be best buddies with her “not much of a” boyfriend and the firefighter she’s up against for a coveted promotion.
When Lindsay decides the time has come to purge Matt from her system once and for all by finally sleeping with her boyfriend, it’s Matt she accidentally finds herself in bed with — and their one night of passion changes everything.
