The author manages to take well used tropes and give them a fresh spin, with plenty of love, romance and entertainment for the reader to enjoy.I loved Scarlett and Brad together, a widow returning home to St. Louis after spending ten years as a military wife and mother, coming home was not a part of her plans until the loss of her SEAL husband, To [...]

    2. 4 Navy SEAL loving stars to Fan the Flames. I'm a sucker for a Navy SEAL guy, I know it and accept it. Brad's an ex-SEAL and that basically sold me to even consider this book. I have to say it didn't let me down and I'm glad I read it. The writing is good, the story is sweet and kind of a second chance one, and the characters are great. Brad Silverman, you sir, can have your wicked way with me any day of the year. Brad is cunning, loyal, dedicated, physically imposing, and tender beyond belief. [...]

    3. If you read the blurb of the book and don't think you will shed one or two tears, you're wrong. But not for the reasons you might think. The story has been done a million times before . girl loses boy to war ~ best friend comes in to help and wham, they fall in love. THAT, basically put, is the basis of our story. And because it's been done a million times before, it's hard to fell moved by the story of Brad and Scarlett.except that war is realevery day, people lose their lives overseas for one [...]

    4. This review was originally posted on Cocktails and BooksAs soon as I read the blurb for Fan the Flames I knew I should expect it to be an emotional read. What I didn't expect was the way I was able to connect with the characters. This new to me author completely blew me away.I mean, the story opens with Scarlett's husband's funeral. How much more emotional can you get? Well, apparently a lot more. As with all active military in combat, Todd entrusted his best friend, a former SEAL himself, with [...]

    5. This was an OK read for me. Nothing really wrong with it but this storyline has been repeated a lot lately and there wasn't anything that really made this one stand out. Scarlett and her young daughter Colleen return to St. Louis two years after losing her husband in a SEAL mission gone wrong. Her husband's best friend Brad has arranged a place for them to live while she gets herself back on her feet. It's the least he can do after promising Todd he would look after them if anything where to hap [...]

    6. Brad sometimes has to reign his girl in and make her see sense, "he literally groaned. “Scarlett, I’m standing here in nothing but a towel. Please, I’m going to go get dressed now.” He's a very considerate man, "he cupped her chin. Brought his lips to hers and gave her a kiss. “Not this time or I might take you against the wall. While I’d like that, you’re sore.” I liked this book, Brad was every girl's dream guy.

    7. I knew this was going to be a tearful story and I was right. Scarlett looses her husband while he is on a mission. Brad, who had known her and was her husbands best friend is trying to pick up the pieces and do what he promised he would do. Although I liked the characters and their history I had a hard time seeing them as a couple for the simple fact I didn't feel as if I was on the ride with them. I just felt the author mentioned things instead of taking us on the journey of Brad and Scarlett f [...]

    8. While this is the 3rd book in the series, I don't feel like I missed anything from not reading the previous books. This is a heartwarming love story.

Received a review copy through the publisher in exchange for an honest review; full post content can be found at:mnonmklreviews/20This was a sweet addition to Michele Dunaway's MAN OF THE MONTH series.Most of the build-up for Scarlett and Brad's relationship bordered on heavy-friendship.

The story line had me from the beginning when we learn that Scarlet's husband has passed away while on a mission. The first chapter is about the military funeral told from her husband's best friend's perspective. From there the story jumps a little and we learn that Scarlet and her daught [...]
