Since my divorce five years ago, these are the two labels I’ve identified with. Now, I’m
ready for more. Ready to give dating a shot, even with an eight-year-old daughter and twenty-four-hour shifts needing my attention.
When Sydney has a snow-day and we have an epic malfunction in the kitchen, we decide to head to the breakfast joint we’ve frequented for years.
Except today something is different.
Our normal waitress, Emma, isn’t all baggy clothes and ducking her head to keep me from seeing her face. Today? Today I feel like I see her for the first time, and damned if our gazes don’t ignite a heat I’ve only felt while on the job.

**My Review**

Welcome to my stop on the release blitz for the latest by Laramie Briscoe, Inflame. This first book in her new Midnight Cove series is about single dad Ash and a young woman Emma, whom he knew of in high school but they didn’t really run in the same social circle. Frequenting the diner where Emma works, Ash sees Emma often, but one day, something about her looks different and seems different, prompting him to leave his number on the table. When she finally gets up the nerve to contact, all of her high-school crush dreams have the possibility of coming true. 

Inflame was a fantastic book! This is a quick read that is full of romance but also includes some difficult situations pertaining to Ash’s job as a firefighter. At times, I felt that their relationship got too serious too fast, but on the other hand, the chemistry between them, as well as, between Emma and Ash’s six-year-old daughter Syd was so palpable that it just seemed right. 

Laramie Briscoe includes some very steamy scenes in this book, with one of the hottest ones being Ash all by himself thinking about Emma. It was so incredibly hot there just aren’t words! In addition to the steamy sexiness of this novel, however, are great themes regarding parenting, love, taking chances, moving forward, and working through trying times. 

I have always been a fan of Briscoe’s storylines and characters and Inflame certainly did not disappoint! I cannot wait to see what comes next in this series!
