A taboo relationship…steamy passion…and secrets that can ruin everything.
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.
4TLOR Review ~ by Lou
This was a really great book which I thoroughly enjoyed. This is the first book I have read by Alexis Alvarez and this book was a brilliant introduction!
In this story, award winning child therapist, Shai is hired by Gabriel to help with his son Michael, following his recovery and treatment for a form of childhood cancer. Gabriel is very skeptical of Shai’s ability to actually help Michael, and right from their first interaction with one another we can tell Shai is going to have some challenges ahead of her.
There was a lot of content in this story, and I felt it was a book you really needed to concentrate whilst reading to really absorb all of the information being presented to the reader. Not a book for skimmers out there, but perhaps take the time to really take note of this story. You wont be disappointed!
I really enjoyed the relationship develop with both Shai and Gabriel – there is a huge amount of chemistry and heat here! But I also loved Shai’s relationship with Michael, and of course between Gabriel and Michael themselves too.
It was clever, original and beautifully written. It is a touching tale of love and overcoming things after the cruelty of life occurs. There is definitely something in this story for everyone out there, and as a parent myself there were some parts I found to be particularly poignant.
