Rick was captain of Boston Fire Ladder # 37. Rick’s guys worked well with the guys from Engine # 51. They all worked as a team. There was a lady whom had called emergency fir department four times in six months. Rick had to figure out a way to gently discourage her from calling and using the fire department to try to get a date It wasted time and and money, also one day she may actually manage to burn her house down. The Broussards - Joe and Marie and started out as landlords for Rick but now were like family .Jessica was the Broussards unknown granddaughter her father David had been motified from the hospital when Joe had gotten hurt and ended up in the hospital.. David had told Jessica to take care of the problem and did not even call the hospital back. David had made his parents out to be someone Jessica wouldn’t want to know. Jessica worked for her dad and decided to go down to where her grandparents were since the Doctor would give her no information as she was not on the emergency call form. Jessica had never met her grandparents because of what her father had told her. Davis had told his daughter that his parents were crass, alcoholic, and had bad tempers when Jessica had been eleven. Jessica is immediately attracted to Rick but she lives and works on the West coast while he is on the East coast. I didn’t love or hate this story. First the ending was a little quick. The romance between Rick and Jessica was a little slow to take off. This story just didn't click for me but others may enjoy it more as it is a sweet story and has a good plot.
