Publisher's Summary

Brandon Gilbert has spent years in hiding, but he's finally accomplished his dream of working as a public school teacher. When offered the chance to help bullied children, there was no way he could say no. Not to mention that meeting Dr. Tash Weber, the psychiatrist who helps them, a sad yet sexy older man, ignited a spark inside Brandon he'd never had before.
Though five years have passed since the death of his lover, Dr. Sebastian "Tash" Weber has no interest in relationships or love. But young, enigmatic Brandon awakens his heart and his desire. Despite Tash's best efforts to push him away, Brandon unlocks the passion for life Tash thought he'd lost forever.
Falling in love wasn't part of the plan for either Brandon or Tash, but neither family disapproval nor self-doubts can stop them from embracing the fire that burns between them. And when Brandon returns home to fight for a future he never imagined possible, he and Tash discover that the one thing worth fighting for has been with them all along.

Embrace the Fire

Embrace the Fire is Book 3 in Felice Stevens' Through Hell and Back series. I highly recommend you read this series in the appropriate order, and not as a standalone.

I really liked Brandon and Tash in this story. Unlike the previous book, Brandon doesn't hold grudges against his brothers and understands they had reasons for disappearing from his life. Though he was young, he was mature beyond his years and worked hard to have the life he wanted. His total acceptance and love for Ash and Luke was just what I needed after the angst and drama between Luke and Ash in Book 2. Really, Brandon is caring, compassionate, empathetic, loving, nurturing, strong and an old soul. Though his actions throughout the book showed his character, his interaction, love, understanding and support of his mother showed just what kind of man he is. I thought Tash was an interesting character from his introduction in Book 2, honestly, at the time I thought Jordan should be with him instead, but the characters knew better! Tash had a lot of self-angst and drama to work through before he could accept his love for Brandon but he gets there.

Though this is a sad, angsty series, the story is not overwhelming. I didn't listen to the audio of the first book, but I can say that for the second book and this one, that there was plenty of sadness, a few tears but it was not too much or over the top for someone who doesn't like a lot of angst. This is not an easy series by any means, but it's so worth the sadness and heartbreak to see the happiness that these three men find.

The narrator of this story is Kale Williams and he does a fantastic job! I love that this series has the same narrator on all three books. The narrator has good diction, a good pace, and gives the characters individual voices. The narrator brought this story and the characters to life. His voice had the appropriate emotions for the story and really just allowed me to focus on the story and not him.

I thought this book did a great job of wrapping up the entire series, and showing the HEA's for all the characters in the book. This is one of the author's series that I've found myself reading over and over again, and I'll do the same with the audio!

Absolutely breathtaking end to a series

It's no secret that I have so much love for this series. Book one was in my top reads of last year list. This series was so full of love and family. It also shows that family isnt only those related by blood. It goes way deeper. Seeing these 3 men who were adopted and all lost each other throughout the years come together and show that there is such a strength that can come from love, is one of the most incredible things. In a world filled with so much hate and evil, Felicie has shown us what ready unconditional love truly is and makes you desire more of it in your life.

The narration for the audio version is powerful and shows depth of emotions covered in this beautifully told story. The voice was soothing and easy to listen to. I love when I hit narrator gold! He truly brought beauty to another Felice Stevens masterpiece.
