Flames of Love Review!

Flames of Love
(Love in Bloom Book 12: The Remingtons Book 3)
Melissa Foster
3 stars!!!

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. 

My Thoughts…

“Don’t toy with me. If I make love to you, my heart’s in it, not just my body.”

The beginning of this story is hilarious. The first time Siena and Cash meet sucks you right in. You have no choice but to go on. Their meeting was full of sparks. The romantic and the dislike kind of sparks. Both Cash and Siena are moody and intense. I loved the way they interacted through the whole book. It was much different than the first two.

Cash Ryder

He was amazing. He was torturing himself over something that he couldn’t control and it was heartbreaking to see him go through that. He was an alpha male to the max. But he was also a huge softy for Siena which made him even better in my eyes. Of the three men in this series so far I think he is second, because I just love Dex, But I mean how could he not be when described as looking like Chris Hemsworth? He was a really understanding guy. I mean if I was Cash I would have dropped Siena already. I mean I get that he loves her but, grrr, she would have been gone.

Cash was really sweet to Vetta too. Made me heart all melty hahaha. Cash was a moody, hot, fireman who already had a ton of scars. He challenges Siena and makes her see things she is too stubborn to see. His character was real and didn’t mess around with anyone’s feelings.

“I’ve been around a very long time, and from where I sit, I see a couple willing to fight for each other.”

Siena Remington

Ok this is where I have to rant a little bit. I really didn’t like her through 50 percent of this book. Ellie wasn’t my favorite but Siena is even worse for me. I mean I get being career driven and everything but you clearly don’t love someone as much as you think if you are putting them through what she did. The kicker is she knew and felt bad about it the whole time. I hated how long it took her to see everything. I mean the freaking last chapter. If I didn’t have that to get through I would have really liked Siena.

Anyway, Siena is beautiful, stubborn, moody, model that is looking for more in her life. She can have the pick of wealthy, famous men, but they don’t treat her the way she deserves. I liked that for the most part she knew what she wanted. She wasn’t someone who was entitled and spoiled. She wanted to model because she loved it. Not because she was vain. She was a strong character…for the most part.

“Dude, that’s what they do. They make you crazy; then they make you love them. Then they make you crazy again, but by then you are in too deep to do anything but love them more.”

All in all I really liked this book. The journey that Siena and Cash went through was entertaining and sweet. The writing was great as usual and the story was smooth, engaging, and the flow was really good. There really isn’t that much I can complain about. If you haven’t read The Braden’s series yet you get to meet them in this book. I haven’t read them but after seeing the glimpse in this book I am definitely going to go pick it up.

To go with The Remington Book Tour Melissa Foster has two of her books for free!
