Hello sassy people! Today’s post is about Big Hose by Jasinda Wilder! Thank you, Jasinda Wilder and Social Butterfly PR for providing this copy in exchange for an honest review!

Escaping Christmas by Marie Landry

Big Hose

by Jasinda Wilder


Putting out fires is more than just a job, it’s my passion in life. There’s no time for anything else but the job…until I meet her. And now I’m on fire for her, only there’s no hose big enough to extinguish these flames.
She’s too hot to handle, and I’m about to get burned.
* * *
Saving lives is what I do. As a career paramedic married to the job, I’ve never thought much about my love life—or my lack of one, if I’m being honest—until it’s his life I’m worried about saving. Now I’ve got a scorching hot firefighter burning up my life and setting my body on fire. No matter how hot he is or how hot things are between us, however, there’s one rule in my life which I refuse to break: Never date a fireman.
* * *
Will we find each other in the flames of this romance, or will we simply add another scar to the collection?

My Rate: ⭐⭐⭐ 3/5 

This book had a LOT of potential. The themes were on point for me, a firefighter and a paramedic, a lot of steam, but at the same time a lot of cuteness and care, plus the reality about the job (not exactly how the job works, I had some doubts about the level of realism there, but about how demanding and tiering the job is), the scenes where one takes care of the other were my absolute favorite (besides some steamy scenes, because my God, they were on point), but overall, it had everything to be an amazing book and get 5 stars from me. However… there were a lot of cringy dialogues that just didn’t work for me, partly because I believe/hope that this is not the way most friends talk (I talk about sex with my friends all the time, but I don’t use phrases like “I know for a fact you love gobbling cock. You can’t get enough. In fact, when you go too long without a cock in your mouth, you get cranky. Which means you need cock. In your mouth, in your hands, in your tight little hoo-ha.” to my best friends.) It was just too much.

Equality rate: ⭐⭐⭐ 3/5 

Also, the amount of sexist phrasing, the amount of comparison to porn stars, and mentions of how her breasts were almost ripping her shirt, it was too much, I felt like I was inside the head of a horny teenager, with honestly not much respect for women. The book makes up for it at a lot of points, it had a lot of positive sides, like:

Books that relay trauma respectfully

Female as the dominant in intimate scenes

Female who initiates intimate scenes

Healthy sexuality (toys, kink, free sexuality)


Powerful and strong female main characters

Women in male-dominated jobs/fields

These were all very positive sides, but I just couldn’t let go of the language and the cringy conversations.

Adjectives and general thoughts: This book had everything to be amazing if it wasn’t for the (sometimes) sexist language and cringy conversations. I loved the themes and the steam and a lot of scenes, but the cringiness was too much at times, for me. 

Recommend this? Yes, if you are not bothered by the language, the book is great.

Bye sassy people! 


  • I know that some comments I make about decent guys on my posts are the bare minimum a guy should do, so no, they don’t deserve to be treated like gods for doing the minimum, but at the same time, I’ve read a lot of sexist books and I appreciate authors who make characters that can serve as role models and examples of how a decent guy acts and what a loving and respectful relationship looks like. I believe we should always encourage these authors and bring attention to the ones that still write sexist characters and stories. 
  • I make a lot of comments about sexism and healthy role models in books, but a lot of times these characteristics don’t make the book a bad book and definitely don’t make the author a bad author. Please never shame these authors and these books for these comments, I simply feel that we need to have awareness of the less than ideal situations some books bring us, and not use the romanticized problem as examples of what a relationship should be. Most of these authors are still amazing, and the content they write doesn’t reflect directly with their personal views and opinions. Always make sure to respect and be kind to everyone, even while criticizing their content.

One of my goals in analysing my readings was to talk about important topics, like feminist and consent, because literature, art and culture influence us, and I believe we should always encorage authors who talk about this topics.
