Review: From the Inferno by Leah Sharelle

 

Published July 2019

Blurb: Chase Brennan’s life came crashing down on the fateful night his daughter was brutally taken from him.

After following the wrong road for some time, the qualified firefighter, who had never given up that ‘the one’ was just around the corner and would one day find him, returned to the living.

What he didn’t know was how she would appear in his life and just how fast and hard he would fall.

Jamie Lawrence was the darling of the Australian tennis circuit.

For years, she did as she was told, smiled when she had to, and played to win so her parents and coach could live the lifestyle they wanted.

They didn’t care what she wanted or that she was unhappy playing the game she once loved. After a scary altercation that left her running for her life, Jamie hid her celebrity status and landed in a town where her happily ever after was waiting for her.

Would her well-meant game of secrecy, pretending to be someone she wasn’t, lose her the man who made her heart beat faster with just one touch?

Could their love survive the inferno and be ‘game, set, match’ in love?

I received an ARC for an honest review. I’m a huge fan of this author. I’m loving this series. Leah Sharelle has an amazing way of letting you feel everything the characters are feeling, which makes for a great read for me. I do want to recommend reading the Wounded Souls series.

From the Inferno is the 3rd in the Firemen Do It Better series. Has 22 chapters and an epilogue and is about Chase and Jamie. I do recommend reading in order as you’ll see some of the previous characters, which I absolutely loved.

Both of their stories are heartbreaking. From the very start it just pulls you in.

Chase, wow, it hits you right off the bat. He suffers a devastating loss, and you can definitely feel the emotions. He lost his daughter and his daughter’s mom. He wasn’t in love with her as they had been apart for many years, but he still loved her as she was his friend.

First chapter was a doozy, but a great start to a story.

I love that even with his loss, he is still looking for love.

Jamie’s story hits you in the feels too. She’s used for money and she’s being abused and no one seems to care. She runs after getting away.

Chase and Jamie meet when she goes into Lake’s bakery to apply for a job.

Definite instaconnection. He hesitates because he knows she’s hiding something and he’s not sure he wants to deal with that again. She hesitates because she’s scared.

I do love that they get to know each other. I love that they tell each other their stories.

This story, everything is descriptive. Very beautifully written.

The story line is great. Steam doesn’t start until past the halfway point, but I didn’t miss it. The way she sets the story up, definitely keeps you interested. Still lots of steam, with a little spanking thrown in.

Little drama with the fires and who is starting them.

I love when characters crossover. Shiloh, favorite character of all time.

Great story. I absolutely loved it. Perfect addition to the storyline. Chase was amazing. They were both all in from the beginning, cause even if they were both hesitant at first? It only lasted a day. They were so perfect for each other.

No pushing away, no ow/om drama, no cheating, no separations, just love. One of my favorites by far.

Epilogue is a few months out. They are just getting married and having a baby girl. I always wish for a further out epilogue, but I know with this author, we’ll see more of these characters in the next book.

I love seeing Jason and definitely can’t wait for his story. Impatiently waiting.

No way that I can give this less than 5 stars. Perfect read.
