Single father Gabriel Baystock is rich and powerful, educated and handsome – and helpless when it comes to ensuring his son Michael recovers fully from a childhood cancer. He’ll do anything, even hire award-winning child therapist Shai Bonaventura.
Shai is drawn to brooding, sexy Gabriel, and while she falls in love with the little boy she’s hired to help, she loses her heart to his father. Their powerful chemistry is off the charts hot, and Shai thinks he might be the one to help heal her own demons, even if it means crossing professional boundaries.
But when old secrets from Shai’s past are revealed, it’s not clear if their fragile relationship can survive the harsh reality of the real world…or whether they have the courage to fight for what they really need?
A Handful of Fire is a full-length stand-alone romance (about 80K words) with an HEA. It’s a contemporary love story with a high heat level and gorgeous, poetic prose.
A Handful of Fire is Wonderful story with a emotional subject matter. It is about Shai who specialises in therapy to help children dealing with serious illness. Through treating Michael a super intelligent but an unhappy boy trying to cope with a life threatening illness, and the treatment side effects. Through treating Michael she meets and falls for his father Gabriel.
Gabriel is a widower and he isn’t coping well with his son’s illness. Full of anguish he loses himself in work and vain women.
This is a romance that take time to build, and even then not everything perfect. I love this book has substance and it’s not insta love or sex. The sex is hot, but Gabriel can still be a jerk, even if he is a hot jerk. We get HEA it takes work to get there, and is all the better for it. I enjoyed it and read it in one seating, it’s not long but has plenty to get your teeth into.
I received a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.
