Lee Stanton and Dirk Krause have been seeing each other for a couple of months when they get the bad news: the firehouse they work at will be closed unless they can come up with the money to complete some maintenance and repairs. The union wants to stand and fight. There’s just one problem: the only suggestion for how to raise the money is Lee’s. And Dirk hates it.

Unfortunately, everyone else thinks Lee’s “Chicken and Beefcake” dinner—which they’ll attend in just their hats, boots, and fire pants—is a great idea, and Lee goes ahead with the organizing. But interference from the borough council and low ticket sales threaten to rain on Lee’s parade. If Dirk can’t put aside his pride and stubborn nature for one night, it could cost both him and Lee their jobs—never mind their relationship.

I absolutely loved this addition to the story. We got to see more growth from Dirk as he learns to support and be there for Lee. Lee shows that he’s strong willed and not willing to let Dirk steam roll him.

The way all the men pull together to try to save their station was awesome. It was really special to watch it all come together while seeing out men grow stronger and learn more about each other as they did so.
The narrator did a fabulous job with the story and made it entertaining to listen to.
I can’t wait for the next part of the story!
