Brandon Gilbert has spent years in hiding, but he’s finally accomplished his dream of working as a public school teacher. When offered the chance to help bullied children, there was no way he could say no. Not to mention that meeting Dr. Tash Weber, the psychiatrist who helps them, a sad yet sexy older man, ignited a spark inside Brandon he’d never had before.

Though five years have passed since the death of his lover, Dr. Sebastian "Tash" Weber has no interest in relationships or love. But young, enigmatic Brandon awakens his heart and his desire. Despite Tash’s best efforts to push him away, Brandon unlocks the passion for life Tash thought he’d lost forever.

Falling in love wasn’t part of the plan for either Brandon or Tash, but neither family disapproval nor self-doubts can stop them from embracing the fire that burns between them. And when Brandon returns home to fight for a future he never imagined possible, he and Tash discover that the one thing worth fighting for has been with them all along.

My Review
Embrace The Fire is book 3 in the Hell And Back series by the very talented Felice Stevens
It states that this book can be read as a standalone and yeah it definitely can...
The series features three brothers and each brother has a book
I haven't read books 1 & 2 but the way this book is written I understood the story fine without having to read the previous books...
But... The three brothers lost touch when they were younger and its in this book they finally all meet again
I think it would of been better if I had read books 1&2 first, then I would of felt more.. happy/emotional/feelings at the reunion
But with me only reading this book I didn't feel the... relief/true emotions of the brothers finally meeting again after so many years apart worrying about each other
I definitely think if I had read the previous books I would of had a more emotional connection to the brothers and then their reunion would of been more important to me
I am sorry to say I just didn't get that bang of feels I should have at the reunion scene
Other than what ive already said i really enjoyed the book
I really liked Tash and Brandon and loved reading their relationship grow into something beautiful
Most of the characters have gone through some tough stuff in the past and its was lovely to read how finding love kind of made them whole again
Embrace The Fire is a pretty emotional book and I did enjoy reading it... But I will definitely have to go back and read books 1&2, I will appreciate this book more having read those
Embrace The Fire is a good book but I definitely recommend you read books 1&2 first to experience the characters to the fullest
About Felice
I have always been a romantic at heart. I believe that while life is tough, there is always a happy ending around the corner, My characters have to work for it, however. Like life in NYC, nothing comes easy and that includes love, but getting there is oh so fun and oh so sexy.

I live in New York City with my husband and two children. My day begins with a lot of caffeine and ends with a glass (or two of red wine). I practice law but daydream of a time when I can sit by a beach somewhere and write beautiful stories of men falling in love. Although there are bound to be a few bumps along the way, a Happily Ever After is always guaranteed.
