OVERALL CARD RATING:
ABOUT THE BOOK: At the Grand Falls Fire Department, brotherhood is the key to everything. It's the glue that holds firefighters together through thick and thin. When Garrett O'Neal realizes the brotherhood he shares with his mentor and best friend could be something that fulfills the erotic fantasy he has of sharing his wife, Carrie, it begins a journey that none of them will escape without being plunged into the depths of flaming passion. A hot and intense tryst becomes so much more than just a bedtime fantasy. As the three begin to navigate the boundaries of love and desire, the fires of passion and their passion to fight fire threatens to tear the three of them apart forever.
THE REVIEW: Let me begin by saying, Ms. Moore delivers a four-alarm fire straight out of the chute with Brotherhood of Fire. From the opening pages of the book, you are connected to the couple on an emotional level. You get a front row seat into the life of Garrett O’Neal and his wife, Carrie. Garrett immediately resonated with me due to his all encompassing love and passion for Carrie. Their relationship is a solid marriage with enough trust that they can share their wildest fantasies without fear of judgment or rejection from the other. Ms. Moore allowed the characters to approach the subject of a ménage that felt real, and allows the reader a glimpse inside their minds. I felt their internal struggle in bringing the fantasy from the bedroom to actually making it a reality.
I found it surprisingly easy to understand Carrie’s position on bringing a lover into their lives, and her uncertainty of what bringing the fantasy to life could mean to her marriage. Cue Garrett’s best friend, and firefighter mentor, John, and Ms. Moore had my heart on a hook. John tugged on my heartstrings, and had me cheering for him from the sidelines. With the most to lose in this love triangle, John’s fears and needs were palpable.
Not only do the trios' limbs and bed sheets become entangled, so do the emotions and lives of this incredible ménage. Ms. Moore takes the reader on a journey of heart-felt, gut-churning emotion. All the players come across as believable, tangible people.
Ms. Moore crosses her T’s and dots her I’s in this romantic ménage that won’t leave you wanting. The reader experiences a realistic view of the emotions of the characters, and the choices they make along the way, while discovering that love isn’t always packaged in pairs…sometimes it comes in multiples. I look forward to Ms. Moore’s future installments of this series.
