FIREBALL by Nazarea Andrews
A Standalone Contemporary Romance
(River Street Bar series, #1)
Dempsey Jones has been a nuisance my entire life. The straight-laced Boy Scout grew up to be a firefighter, of all things. He was the one helping kittens out of trees and old ladies cross the road while I was lighting cherry bombs with my best friend in abandoned buildings, and now that weâre all grown upâeven if my Dad doesnât agreeâheâs still just as annoying.
Taite Ridley has been a constant my whole life, the curly-haired mischievous daughter of the police chief, charming and devious and alluring. She was wild in ways I never dared to be and too big for our little town. But sheâs here, a small town cop, and I canât avoid her, even if I wanted to.
And I donât want to.
Itâs like mixing fire and gasoline and when these two collide, someone is gonna get burnedâ¦

âIâm fine,â I call, waving, wincing when the move tugs at the gouges the demon kitten left behind.
Dempseyâs lips twitch and I glare at him.
âDoes the Chief know?â I ask.
He inclines his head and says, âItâs protocol to inform the department if thereâs an officer down.â
I curse and huff, âIâm going to shoot Miguel with his own service weapon.â
Dempsey lifts an eyebrow.
âFine, you win,â I sigh, âCheck me out. Might as well get it over with. The Chief will make me when he gets here anyway.â
Iâm a little surprised he isnât already here, except I know he was checking out a call about vandalism over at the River Bridge. It means Daddyâs only twenty minutes away or less by now. Iâm pretty sure Dempsey will be done with me by the time he gets here and Iâll look less like a drowned rat in the light of his flashing blues.
God willing, anyway.
Dempsey follows me up the three steps and into Mrs. Rudolphâs den. Itâs cozy, floral, and hot enough that Iâm absurdly grateful for the lack of coat.
âWould you like some coffee?â she asks, directing the question firmly at Dempsey. I want to bitchâIâm the one wet and bleedingâbut I know better. I snarl under my breath and Dempsey wisely chooses to shake his head.
âIf you could just point me to your bathroom?â he says, the usual charming inflection in his tone that grates against my skin.
And because sheâs a traitor, Mrs. Rudolph smiles, this girlish thing that looks weird on a face thatâs pushing eighty, and points him down the hall toward a fucking pink bathroom. I had to rescue her damn cockatoo from that monstrosity when I was a rookie, and Iâve never gotten over the hideousness.
Miguel says I have issues. I maintain that they are well earned.
âCoffee sounds fantastic,â I say, digging my heels in.
Dempseyâs hand clamps down on my arm and he hauls me along behind him like Iâm some kind of errant child. Iâm a cop. Being manhandled like this is not a good look for me. It makes me want to hiss and scratch at him until he lets me go.
It makes a completely differentâidioticâside of me want to purr and arch under his touch.
He pushes me against the pink counter until I take the not so subtle hint and hoist myself up.
âYou gonna be good or a pain in the ass about this?â he asks, opening up his first aid kit.
I flash him a cheeky smirk. âYou wouldnât know what to do with me if I wasnât a pain in the ass,â I answer as he snaps on a pair of rubber gloves.
