If you dig into the deepest parts of your soul, what would you find? Happiness, pain, love, regret, peace, sorrow? Now imagine experiencing all those feelings at once and then nothing at all. These were the average days in the life of Lennox. An unhealthy and unstable mind is further challenged when fate intervenes. One tragic moment will test her wavering strength and leave a permanent scar on her conscience. Follow her journey of rediscovery, falling in love, and searching for her own fairy-tale ending.

ARC received for an honest review

When I first signed up for this blog tour, I thought "Oooh sexy hot firemen!"  But I have to say, this is not what A Firefighter's Flame is about, and I was pleasantly surprised by the journey I was taken on.

This is the story of Lennox, a sexy firefighter's wife, and we follow her from her teenage years to married with children status.  The thing I liked about her the most is her imperfections.  She suffers from bipolar disorder (and from the perspective of someone who has suffered depression for many years, I could totally relate to her in her depressed phases).  Her marriage is not perfect, she struggles with the day to day.

Her husband Dean has always been her one.  Or has he?  I both loved and loathed him at times, but mostly loved him.

There is a bit of a love triangle that isn't really a love triangle (does that make sense) with Lennox, Dean and his friend Brayden, but I don't want to tell you much about that as I don't want to spoil things for you. 

Lennox did frustrate me for a good deal of the book with the flip-flopping between her feelings for Brayden and the love for her husband. I wanted to shake her at times and tell her to snap out of it, and make up her mind (though in theory having two hotties after you isn't a bad thing, is it? lol)

A Firefighter's Flame is a bit of everything.  While it is predominantly a book about Lennox and her fights to find herself and grow as a human being, it deals with mental illness, love and loss, lust and temptation, hope and faith, betrayal and regret.

It is written in 3 different times in Lennox's life (teen/college years, present, and the very near past), and this took me a little while to get into, but it was a great way to get into Lennox's mind set at those times of her life.  

A Firefighter's Flame is a book with a great deal of heart and a great deal of heartbreak.  There was also a twist in the tail of this story that had me thinking "ooooh wonder where this is going" but then it ended and we didn't get to find out the road it took   :(

If you are not after a run of the mill fireman book, A Firefighter's Flame is the way to go for it.

Prologue
There was a time in my life when the light within me shined so brightly. At some point I lost it. I lost me. Life used to course through my veins like an out of control wildfire, unstoppable and infectious. Time was supposed to heal, but all it did was slowly strip me down to an empty vessel void of passion, desire, and drive. I wanted to scream, Be the one to save me, but my soul was drained, my heart was shattered, and time had siphoned the life out of me.
