Blog Tour: Melissa Foster's "Flames of Love (Love in Bloom # 3)."

The Hopeless Romantics Book Blog are pleased to be a part of the Blog Tour for Melissa Foster's "Flames of Love (Love in Bloom # 3)."

Amazon UK:


FLAMES OF LOVE is the newest addition to the LOVE IN BLOOM series by New York Times & USA Today bestselling and award-winning author Melissa Foster. This 5-book steamy contemporary romance series features alpha male heroes and sexy, empowered women. They're flawed, funny, passionate, and very relatable to readers who enjoy new adult romance, contemporary romance, and women's fiction.

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.

Blog Tour Review: Jo Rushton

"Flames of Love" is another romantic story from the "Love in Bloom" series and follows hot, moody fireman "Cash" and the beautiful but equally as moody "Siena Remington".

Hunky Cash was described as looking like Chris Hemsworth so he got my attention straight away! He'd got the mean and moody look down to perfection walking around like he had the weight of the world on his shoulders, but looking as good as he did, he got away with it. Oh my, Cash could put out my fire any day! LOL. 

"Careful..You're playing with fire, and I'm a master at controlling the flames." 

Siena was a perfect match for Cash. She was confident, fiesty and refused to let anyone treat her badly and get away with it. This woman had girl power written all over her!

When the couple first met they clashed in an epic way. They really didn't appear to get along at all but despite this the heat that was running between them was intense. Cash and Siena secretly fancied the pants off each other but who would crack first and give in to their desires?

"You have to be certain you want me, because If I kiss you, I'm not going to stop." 

I was so relieved when Cash and Siena gave in to their attraction to one another. The author didn't keep me waiting long, which I was pleased about. I thought that Cash and Siena were perfect together. I loved how they changed and softened, their hard edges were peeling away leaving a beautiful relationship. This couple truly bought out the best in each other, with love blossoming and turning Cash into a romantic and sweet man. Who would have thought that the moody fireman could be so loving and gentle!! And when it got down to the sex scenes, this pair sizzled. That electrical current was not going to go away any time soon. 

"You're like a fire. I want to study you, understand you, and learn what makes you lose control."

So everything was going great between Cash and Siena until she was forced to make a decision about her career which could potentially ruin everything between them. Siena had to choose between Cash or her career!!!

I truly expected things to go wrong for the couple at this point in the story. Siena was a career minded girl and had worked hard to get to the top of her profession. Would she really turn down the opportunity of her life for love? My heart went out to Cash, I was very impressed with how understanding and patient he was with Siena and her modeling career. Cash was turning out to be the perfect guy. If Sienna decided she didn't want the hunky fireman, I would have him!

I found "Flames of Love" to be a heartwarming and passionate story that I enjoyed reading. I loved that I got to catch up with the other "Remingtons" from the previous books but don't worry If you haven't read any of the other books from the series because this story can be read as a stand alone. "Flames of Love" is perfect if you are looking for a sexy little book and you have a thing for hot firemen and as such I rated it 4 Flaming Hot Hearts!!!
