I decided to join a few memes for a Friday blog post (I love checking out Katherine’s posts each week!). I’m participating in the Book Blogger Hop (answering a given question each week), Book Beginnings on Fridays, and the Friday 56 (sharing the first line, and something from either page 56, or 56% of the book I’m currently reading).

The Book Blogger Hop Question of the Week
Do you re-arrange and move books around on the shelves or move books off of your bookshelves to another area after a certain amount of time or do you just leave them the way they are?
So here’s the thing. I’m a librarian. Nearly all of my books are arranged alphabetically by author’s last name. I have a main bookshelf with the majority of my books arranged that way, regardless of if I’ve read them yet. I have another book shelf that is for my mass market paperbacks (nearly all romances) that are also arranged alphabetically by author’s last night. The only time I move them around is when I want to read them, or when I need to make room for new books. It’s makes everything so easy to find that way. 🙂
Book Beginnings on Fridays and the Friday 56
The Night Belongs to Fireman by Jennifer Bernard
Daring . . . Sexy . . . Irresistible . . .
They’re the Bachelor Firemen of San Gabriel
When fireman Fred Breen rescues a bachelorette party after a construction crane collapses onto their limo, the media labels him the “Bachelor Hero.” But all Fred can think about is the petite brunette with the sexy mane of dark curls who bolted away from him faster than a wildfire after he carried her to safety. And when he discovers she’s none other than Rachel Kessler, the daughter of a tech billionaire, the girl whose kidnapping riveted the nation, he intends to learn every intimate detail about this intriguing woman who sets his pulse on fire.
Rachel can’t deny the lean-muscled firefighter is smokin’ hot. But after having one too many drinks at the bar where she first meets him, Rachel knows she’s made a fool of herself. Yet when he rescues her from the limo, she feels safe for the first time since she was held for ransom as a child. Then her overprotective father insists Fred be her bodyguard—and his close presence kindles a burning desire that only he can extinguish.
No woman could help by notice the two men who strode into the City Lights Grill just after midnight. Not with that amount of pure, knockout maleness walking through the door.
Setup: Fred, a fireman, rescued Rachel, and her friends from a limo after a crane fell on top of it. Fred wanted to see her again, and learned that she is a dog therapist. He has borrowed the firehouse dog, Stan, as a reason to go visit Rachel.
“You ready for some therapy, boy?” Fred asked Stan. “You must have something wrong with you. That time you swallowed the gel pack still giving you nightmares?”
Stan merely cocked an ear at him.
“Seriously, do you have to look so well-adjusted?” Fred grumbled. “You’re going to blow my cover.”
I’m really liking this book so far. This is the first book I’ve read by Bernard, but so far it’s hitting all the right spots for me. Fred seems pretty fantastic, and I like the humor.
