Maxwell Knight was dangerously good-looking, seductively charming, and definitely trouble.

He was everything Jeanella Mefferd did NOT need now.
Fresh out of college, life was predictable and comfortable for Jeanella. She had the strength 

of her friends, the security of her job, and she was dating a reliable man; it was all smooth

sailing. That was until one night, when she met someone who made her feel things she’d

never felt before—dangerous, heart pounding, breathless heat.
Never imagining she would see him again, Jeanella has no idea what to do when fate steps in

and thrusts Maxwell Knight into her life, just as things were beginning to change around her. 

When she lands her dream job and travels to New York for Fashion Week, can she focus on 

her career instead of on Maxwell?

Will she ignore all the danger signs and jump straight into his arms; or would she miss out on

the chance of finding something great?

           When he probed with more questions about what I looked for in query letters, I told him I liked romance novels and I basically looked for potential book boyfriends.
        “Book boyfriends?” He chuckled out loud. As I watched, his chest moved to the rhythm of his laugh. “Really?” He took his last bite and chugged his coffee.
        “Yes…really.” I had already finished my plate since I was too nervous to talk.
        “Is that like for people who can’t get one in real life?” He was totally amused by this notion.
        “No…silly,” I giggled. “Readers read books to help them escape from the daily routine of life. Many of these romance books have a swoon-worthy, gorgeous guy with really nice abs and a six pack, who can deliver wild, hot sex.” Just the thought alone made me turn red and I froze when he gave me a heated look. Then, his eyes concentrated on my lips, shifted to my breasts, then back up to my eyes when I said ‘wild, hot sex.’ I just described him and what he could potentially do.
Gravitating toward me, his eyes locked lustfully on mine. His lips were just inches away as they parted to speak and I didn’t know how he got so close to me. “I would like to be your book boyfriend,” he said with the hottest sound that could sing out of his lustrous, lick-able mouth. The puff of his breath on my lips sizzled way down to my sex. He reached out to my face, his thumb sensually sliding, feather light to touch my bottom lip with one long, slow stroke. As I watched his tongue glide over his bottom lip at the same time, I quivered beyond control.
        Completely dumbfounded, I sat there staring at him and in my mind, I had already taken off my clothes for him. Blinking because that was all I could do, I wanted to say yes, but my pride and my head knew better and stopped me.
Suddenly, he broke his gaze and it felt like he had just dumped ice water over my head. “Is that what a book boyfriend would say and do?” he chuckled as he picked up our plates and took them to the kitchen.
What just happened? I was almost certain my face was deep red, because I felt it down to my toes.

Flame by Brooke Cumberland Review- Feb 10

Sarah's Review

**5 star review**

I was lucky enough to read this story as it was written and I loved every single part of it!! 

After not actually getting around to reading the first two books I was worried that I wouldn't understand what was going on, or who everyone was, but I was wrong, it was written so perfectly that it can be read as a standalone with no confusion at all! 

It's hot, steamy, angsty, heart wrenching and all consuming. 
Carissa has an attitude that I love in a lead female character, her 'couldn't care less' perspective on things was refreshing and really made her likeable. She has a shitty childhood to put behind her and a string of one night stands under her belt, which is her preference, she doesn't want to settle down. Ever. That is until Drew walks into her life with his sweet talk, hot looks, alpha male attitude and irresistible British accent! He wants to make Carissa his, and he isn't one to give up, luckily! 

Their relationship progresses, with ups and down that make you aww in one chapter, and want to scream in the next! I recommend this book, and highly recommend that your phone or kindle is secured in bubble wrap when you hit certain parts, yes you will want to hunt Brooke down and shake her for putting you through the bloody mill, I know I did!
