Publisher's Summary

"A burning building doesn't scare me at all compared to the thought of losing you."
Firefighter Cole Taylor is the man everyone looks up to at Firehouse 9 in downtown Spokane. He's been at the department for 10 years and has no fear when it comes to dangerous situations.
Megan Taylor, Cole's wife, is a stay-at-home mother of their two boys. She was everything Cole ever wanted in a woman and the perfect wife any man could ask for, until one day when she decides to leave Cole.
Cole has fought hundreds of fires in his lifetime, but he had never tasted fear until he came to fighting a fire in his own home. Amongst the Flames is a Christian firefighter romance that tackles real-life situations and problems that exist in Christian marriages today. It brings with it passion, love, and spiritual depth that will leave you feeling inspired. This contemporary Christian romance novel is one book that you'll want to hear over and over again.

I got this book via audiobook boom. Meghan was not my favorite character and her sister was even less in my eyes.Her sister divorced her husband then got Meghan to leave Cole all so she would have someone to babysit her kids. I hate it when family members get in the middle of a marriage. Meghan's father set the example for Meghan's sister to follow. I am glad that he saw and was able to tell Cole about his interference even though he did not apologize he did admit he should not have.nThe HEA occurred because both of them decided that they should allow God to be the center of their marriage. The lesson for all married couples is just that. Marriage takes three. God must be the center in order for it to be successful.

Good Christian Story about Fighting for Marriage.

What made the experience of listening to Amongst the Flames: A Contemporary Christian Romance the most enjoyable?

The narrator has a perfect voice for the main character. Also this is an uplifting story about overcoming obstacles in your life, particularly your marriage, through the Lord. It is written in a no frills, plain spoken style with a dramatic narrative. It is particularly good for the Christian fiction genre.

What did you like best about this story?

It was a realistic portrayal of some of the common problems in marriage (minus the male fantasy about his father-in-law dying so conveniently). It portrays the male mindset fairly well (according to my husband who listened to it with me while redoing the bathroom floor). It is a hopeful story that contains good advice.

Have you listened to any of Chris Abell’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

No, but he gave a wonderful performance. He brought both the fire fighters and Megan and Amanda to life. He switched between the characters flawlessly. Good sound quality. Nice job.

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

There are several moving scenes in this book. When Megan leaves with the children, when he storms out of his father-in-law's house, the reconciliation talk he has with his father-in-law, when Cole finds out his wife was bar hopping, when Cole takes a turn with bedtime chores for the first time, and when Cole finds his wife's diary are all emotional scenes.

My husband's favorite scenes were when Cole realized that he really only sought God in times of crisis (the dusty bible scene) and when Cole realizes how much his wife is putting into raising their children.

Any additional comments?

I received this book for free from the author, narrator or publisher in exchange for an honest review. This is a great book.
