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.
NB This is a re-release and has been extensively re-edited and revised with almost 10k words of additional content added.
Embrace the Fire is book three in the Through Hell and Back series and while they could technically be read as standalones, there’s an ongoing storyline, so please do yourself a favor and read the series in order. You won’t regret it.
I loved Brandon, he was such a sweet guy, very mature for his age. I loved Tash, too, but I really wanted to slap him a few times when he wouldn’t get over the age gap issue. Enough is enough, you know? Especially, when the younger man seems a whole lot more mature about the whole thing than the 39-year-old! Still, I loved them together, they complemented each other perfectly and were sweet and hot, with a great chemistry. I just couldn’t get enough of them.
I loved Ash from the first book and he remains my favorite character, right along with Esther. I adored Drew here, too and even liked Jordan a whole lot more. The one I wanted to strangle was Luke, though. Grrr!!!
I loved that Felice gave us that ending, those epilogues alone were everything and I loved that Ash, Luke and Brandon got some closure at the end.
The book was emotional and engaging, the writing was stellar, the characters were amazing and I’m truly sorry there won’t be any more books in this series. It’s been a lovely journey! Very recommendable!

I live in New York City with my husband and two children. My day begins with a lot of caffeine and ends with a glass (or two of red wine). I practice law but daydream of a time when I can sit by a beach somewhere and write beautiful stories of men falling in love. Although there are bound to be a few bumps along the way, a Happily Ever After is always guaranteed.
