Fan The Flames Releases August 18th!!
Brad Silverman is a former Navy Seal turned marine rescue firefighter, who is also suffering from the loss of his best friend and Scarlett's husband.Todd. When Todd decided to re-enlist he asked Brad to be the one to care for his wife and daughter if anything happened to him while he was serving overseas, Brad of course agreed, with the hope that it would never come to that. So, after Todd passes Brad assumes his duty to care for Scarlett and her young daughter, by offering them a place to live in St. Louis. Scarlett and Brad have history, they have known each other since high school, and once shared a passionate kiss under the bleachers at school. Brad has admired Scarlett from afar for years and long since thought Scarlett was the one that got away, and the girl he was meant to spend his life with. When she moves into his house he is happy to have her in his life again, and thankful for the friendship she offers, but that nagging feeling of her being the one is still hanging in the back of his mind, and he continues to wonder if she feels the same way, and if a life with her is possible. Can he be the one who help her pick up the pieces and move on, or is this just a high school crush that he never got over?
This was my first experience with this author's work, and I must admit that I absolutely loved it, and would love to see this developed into a series. The story line was highly addictive, and did a excellent job at maintaining my attention the whole way through. The characters were very well developed, believable and had amazing chemistry, which help to create some very sizzling scenes! They had me blushing and smiling the whole way through!!
Highly recommend you read this heartwarming story, it is a story of love, loss, and redemption, and will renew your faith in the possibilities of happy endings.
