Gwen thought that opening up a muffin shop next to a firehouse was going to be a dream come true. Especially next to the hot fireman of Colwood, Montana who like to walk around half-naked. Boy, was she wrong. Because every time she walks outside, she ends up fighting with Zane, the frustratingly handsome firefighter who always gets her heart pumping, her palms sweating, and her pulse racing. 

Zane, the Kodiak bear shifter, can’t stop fighting with the girl next door. But his inner bear has other plans for his curvy neighbor and he doesn’t seem to care what Zane has to say about it. 

When the two enemies are forced together for a night will they be at each other’s throats, or be at each other’s clothes?

Title:  Colwood Firehouse: Zane
Series:  The Shifters of Colwood Firehouse #1
Author:  Kim Fox
Published:  November 12, 2017
My Rating:  4.5 stars

Colwood Firehouse: Zane is an intriguing, funny and sexy introduction to the new series The Shifters of Colwood Firehouse.  It’s also a huge reminder to me that I need to spend some time in early 2018 getting caught up on Kim Fox’s series since this story does have connections and I don’t want to miss seeing those things that connect by being so far behind – even if life does happen.

For some reason Gwen and Zane just rub each other the wrong way… or at least that’s how Gwen sees it.  Of all the handsome, hot as sim men working at the firehouse next door Zane is the only one who gets on her nerves, teases her without ending and is simply a jerk to her.  She often gets back at him for soaking her newspaper by taking offerings of the delicious muffins her shop creates for everyone at the fire station… except Zane.  She always seems to forget his.

I liked Zane and Gwen together, their bantering and really mock feud is entertaining especially as we are privy to Gwen’s inner most thoughts – and there’s nothing PG rated about them.  By the strike of luck or jealousy, Gwen and Zane up on one amazing arranged date and each begin to see the other a little differently.  But the reality of Zane’s world is about to come crashing in on their date and bring new dangers to everyone in the area.

I enjoyed my time in Colwood Firehouse: Zane and I’m looking forward to following the rest of this series.  But first, for my own sake, I need to do some catching up to get all the back story mentions.  So, yes, I do follow my own recommendations and go back to the beginnings when I realize that series connect.  There’s just more fun for me when I know the entire story, and that often includes what went on before.

I’d recommend this story to any Paranormal Romance or Shifter Romance  reader who enjoys lively bantering, sexy  heroes and interesting secondary characters.

I read this title through my Kindle Unlimited subscription.
