Flames of Love (Love in Bloom: The Remingtons #3) by Melissa Foster

Flames of Love
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.

Overall Rating:  4.5 Rockin’ ★★★★☆

Cash is always prepared or so he thinks until on a snowy night he rescues a woman that he is totally unprepared for. Siena is a top model and the pin up dream of a lot of Cash’s fellow fire fighters. Instant attraction sizzles through them both and lots of denial.

“Hey, you all right in there?” A man’s deep voice broke through her worry. “Yes! Help me. Please!” Oh, thank God. “Hurry. Please hurry.” Siena gasped a breath before realizing that any sane person would be covered up in this weather. Her heartbeat picked up as she stared at the mask that covered everything but a swatch of skin around serious dark eyes. Sexy dark eyes, filled with serious concern. Jesus, what am I thinking? “Please help me.”

Siena is looking for someone like her brothers. Someone that will romance her like her brothers had their significant others.  Will Cash be that someone that will treat her as a woman and not eye candy?

Is it too much to want a guy who pays attention to more than my looks?  Who picks up on the little things? Unsaid things?

Siena and Cash come together in an unconventional way, a fireman holiday calendar shoot! Siena and her friend Willow are there as the female part of the calendar.  Cash and Siena are shocked at the presence of the other and the heat is blazing when they are paired. 

Siena lifted her eyes just in time to see Cash walk through the door.  Holy crap.  No way he’s modeling.  
Siena couldn’t concentrate.  How could she when his pants hung just low enough to reveal the curve of his abs where they sank below his hips and dipped toward the center in a sexy V as they traveled south?

Siena finds out that Cash is more than the hot exterior that the world sees and she wonders if he can be the one that can see who she really is! Cash also sees that Siena is not just the photos that everyone sees but a special woman that can save him.

Hero –Cash Ryder: 5 stars
Heroine –Siena Remington: 4 stars
Steam: 4.5 stars

Cliffhanger: No

Would I recommend this book: Yes! If a hot fire fighter and a top model can find true love, then we all have a chance for that HAWT relationship.  This author makes it all believable.

Would I read other books by this author: Yes! This is one of my favorite authors.  I cannot wait to see where she will take me next when she tells Rush Remington’s story.
