Flames of Love by Melissa Foster - Book Tour, Book Review, Giveaway




As one of New York’s Finest, firefighter Cash Ryder is always prepared. When a woman’s car skids off the side of a mountain during a snowstorm, he’s there to rescue her. Cash is totally focused on the woman’s well-being, but within minutes of getting her to safety, he realizes that he’s nowhere near prepared for the heat that rolls off of sensual, smart-mouthed, and stubborn Siena Remington.

As a model, Siena Remington has dated some of the wealthiest, most handsome men in the industry, and she’s made peace with the idea that most men are just looking for eye candy and they wouldn’t know how to romance a woman to save their lives. When she’s rescued by a tall, handsome stranger, she thinks that maybe, just maybe, she’s found her own real-life romantic fairy tale—until he opens his mouth and everything that comes out is gruff, ornery, and aggravatingly sexy.

Thrown together during an annual firehouse calendar photo shoot, the passion between Cash and Siena sizzles, and neither one knows how to control the flames. After an evening of verbal sparring followed by a sinfully sensual night, their darkest secrets are revealed—and so is Cash’s warm, romantic heart. But Siena’s secret might be too much for big, strong, always-prepared Cash to handle—and Siena is forced to choose between a man who’s everything she’s ever dreamed of and an opportunity of a lifetime.

Being the only girl among the Remingtons, and being a hot model, I wonder who will Sienna fall in love with…

She watched her brothers fell in love, and even though she is surrounded by men and desired by many, she wanted something the same as her brothers have right now with their partners – she wanted love, and romance. She wanted to be swept off her feet, she wanted roses, dinners, and holding hands. But finding true love can be a very hard task. Until a snow storm landed her on a firefighter’s lap – Cash Ryder.

He was gruff, a little bit rude, but sexy as hell. I can just imagine those handsome firefighters I saw on Pinterest that had me drooling and swooning for hours. He is the type of man who is always prepared for whatever circumstances. When a woman’s car skids off the side of the mountain during a snowstorm, he was able to rescue her. What he wasn’t prepared for was to come face to face to the beautiful, smart-mouth Sienna Remington. And he didn’t even know her until he saw that Johnny Walker ad!

The sexual tension was already off the edge, one big shove and I know these two would just ignite my Kindle. And I was so right – it was the annual firehouse calendar shoot that pushed these two together until they can no longer deny the attraction. It turns out that their verbal banter was a mere foreplay to a very steamy, sexy, and sensual night.

But these two has secrets they are yet to share. Cash had been harboring guilt feelings over the life he could have saved but failed to do so. He had been punishing himself to a fault. As for Sienna, an opportunity came in, but with strings attached. Is she willing to sacrifice what they have for an opportunity of a lifetime? Morals are questioned – up to what extent can she do with regards to her career?

He might be a little rough around the edges, but Cash knows romance and how to make a girl fall for him with all those sweet ideas he has for a date. He can be annoying when he goes all-alpha on Sienna but he can really, really be lovable when he turns soft. What I love about him – is that he tries to keep his mind open about things. He tries not to be jealous, he tries to work things out, he tries, and tries… I was just wondering if he was willing to try to forgive himself as well. Because it pains me to see him risk his life one fire after the other after the incident. It was a big blessing Sienna came into his life.

As for Sienna – I have seen sides of her I didn’t expect, and yes, I was a bit disappointed at first. Perhaps because I thought she was better than that. She wasn’t raised not to stand up against things that she was uncomfortable with. She allowed herself to be pushed, to do things she doesn’t normally do – and to compromise what she had with Cash. It took some girl intervention before she can finally see the light, and realize that nothing is more important than Cash. She finally has what her brothers have – TRUE LOVE, and she wasn’t going to let it go easily. So she makes one grand gesture that made me smile, and loved her more.

Flames of Love is a story about love, forgiveness and compromise. You have to forgive yourself first before you can ask forgiveness or start healing. And compromise is important in a relationship - it makes a win-win situation for everyone. I love the two characters, and everything that surrounds them. It was good to see old characters I have came to love in the previous books, and once again Melissa Foster didn’t disappoint me. No matter how many times I have read her novel, she has still something new and fresh to offer. Just like this book that kept me up until I finally got the HEA I was hoping for. Can’t wait for the next one in the series!
