  • Fire and Foreplay

    I absolutely loved this book. It’s a wonderful read and portrays the characters as real as they can get. The humanity and warmth of people who just go for it is awesome.

  • A Difficult and Loving Journey to Travel

    I loved reading Fire and Foreplay by the amazing duo Melanie Shawn, the fourteenth book in their Hope Fall series. We met MMA fighter Gabe Maguire in the last book. After winning the rescheduled match postponed by his cancer diagnosis he returns to Hope Falls to join the fire department, working with his cousin, the chief. Adriana Hale, a single mom of twin four-year old girls, promises her dying cousin to try to find the father of the nine-year old son she had after a one-night stand. While watching a MMA fight together, Adriana realizes that Gabe could be the missing father. Taking a chance, she travels to Hope Falls to meet Gabe and get to know him, before dropping her bombshell. The minute he saw Adriana, Gabe falls for her, hook, line and sinker. She makes him feel alive again, which hadn’t happened since his cancer diagnosis. Could she be his soul mate? These two need to discover if they can handle the obstacles this entire scenario places in their way and if they actually are able to share the journey to the future. Through their amazing and vivid writing Melanie Shawn did an outstanding job tackling this love at first sight story. I genuinely enjoyed reading Fire and Foreplay and was pleased with the way Melanie Shawn found a way for Gabe and Adriana to find their way to a happy forever. Although this book is part of a series, it can also be read as a stand-alone. I highly recommend this book and am looking forward to reading the next story in the Hope Falls series. I voluntarily reviewed a complimentary copy of this book.

  • Great Contemporary Romance

    Fire And Foreplay is a contemporary romance by Melanie Shawn. Ms. Shawn has once again delivered a well-written book. The characters are outstanding, as is the dialog. Adriana promised to look for the father and took her cousin's son to raise after her cousin died. Gabe is a fighter that had to take time away from the ring for cancer treatment. Adriana and Gabe's tale is loaded with drama, humor, sizzle and a surprise for Gabe. I enjoyed reading Fire And Foreplay and look forward to my next book by Melanie Shawn. Fire And Foreplay is book 14 of the Hope Falls Series but can be read as a standalone. This is a complete book, not a cliff-hanger.

  • Great Addition to the series

    I voluntarily reviewed an Advance Reader Copy of this book. I have read this entire series and some I have loved more than others. This was a really wonderful story and I really enjoyed it. No one dies in the actual book but the story does revolve around cancer as Gabe, has beaten his cancer diagnosis but is now sterile from it and Adriana, his female lead, lost a sister to a form of it. So those sensitive to Cancer, I just wanted to warn you. Adriana lost her sister to cancer and she is really struggling with it. She is a mom to two twin girls and she also is a new mom to her 9 year old nephew. No one knows whose Father Jonah is but when Adriana sees Gabe at a prize fight she thinks he looks familiar and when she find a photo with him she thinks he might be Jonahs dad. That is what brings her to Hope Falls and to Gabe. Gabe for his part really likes her and they sorta date while she visits town. I kinda wanted her to get over herself and tell Gabe why she was there. But beyond my impatience with that I beyond LOVED this story.

    Thanks for your feedback!

  • great story

    Absolutely loved this book. Such a good read and a tear jerker. Gabe was the perfect character for this story. So loving and been through so much himself. Adriana also having been through so much was his perfect much. Gabe is an MMA fighter that had just made his comeback after having survived cancer. Adriana is a single mother of twin toddlers as well as a mother to his cousins son Jonah because of her cousin passing away from cancer shortly before. Adriana is trying to fulfill her cousins dying wish to find Jonah’s father. Did Adriana go to Hope Falls to find Gabe or could running into Gabe just be an happy accident? Why do you read this great story of love and heartache and fresh starts. You won’t be disappointed.

    Thanks for your feedback!
