I am a woman. If you cut me, do I not bleed? If you offer me chocolate, do I not take it? If you offer me romance, do I not read it?! Of course I do, I am woman. Let me introduce you to my newest weakness. Romance novels by author Kristen James. I met Kristen via an interview I recently did on her (Interview) and decided to try her book. Boy is the woman, and reader, in me happy I did! Embers of Hope, Flickers of Passion is a well written love story, reminiscent of the movie Backdraft, in the fact that the main character, Jason, is a firefighter and his best friend, Mike, is killed in a fire.

The central characters of the story are Savanna, her best friend Cassie, Cassie's husband Mike and Mike's best friend Jason. The story starts off with Savanna moving herself, and her infant daughter Aubrey, or Bobby Boo as she is affectionately called, to Texas to help her best friend, Cassie, recover from the very recent death of her husband Mike. Mike is a firefighter who is killed in the line of duty. Mike's best friend, Jason, is held accountable by himself and Cassie, even though he was not involved in the accident. Savanna quickly realizes that Jason is the firefighter who saved her life a few years before.

Being the mother hen that she is, Savanna soon decides that she not only needs to repair Cassie but also Jason, thus throwing herself in the middle of the two since Cassie blames him. The reader soon realizes that Savanna needs some saving herself as the last 2 or so years of her life with her ex-husband Eric have been horrible. After hearing parts of Savanna's story, and an intense internal feeling of need, Jason also feels the need to help Savanna.

I got this book because I recently read another one written by the same author and I enjoyed it so much. But this book is so poorly written, I am now submitting my first ever review of an ebook. There were so many spelling and grammer errors, several times I had to stop in the middle of a sentence to sort out what she actually meant. The story line jumped around so much, I found myself exclaiming out loud: "What??!!" Unfortunately this book reads like a first draft. I'll try another by this author because I know she can do better. But this one... I'm only going to finish because I'm now invested in the lead characters.

Gag me. With a spoon.

The writing level in this book is someone taking college courses, writing a novella for a class assignment. Poor sentence structure, mixed up words, bad grammar, and so on. It needs a solid once-over from an editor/proofreader (the author's blurb claims she is one, but if so.....) to clean up the mess. I was mentally rewriting the book while I was reading it.

The premise was good - a woman moves to Texas from Oregon, meets a guy, marries him, has a baby with him, then comes home because her best friend's husband died. The woman has secrets about her time in Texas, things she didn't tell either her best friend, Cassie, or her mother, Margaret.

To the book's detriment, therein lies much of the conflict in the story - Savannah reconciling her secrets within herself, and sharing them with her friend and her mother. In what could have been an interesting twist, turns out that the guy Cassie sends to pick Savannah up at the truck rental place when she hits town is Cassie's dead husband's best friend, and is also the firefighter who rescued Savannah from an apartment fire two years ago. Unfortunately, Cassie is angry at Jason for killing her husband (not that he actually did), and the chemistry between Savannah and Jason is tepid, at best. The enmity between Cassie and Jason is the remaining conflict in the story. There's a small B arc with the ex-husband suing for custody, but it's not even really interesting. That B arc did have the most glaring mistake in the book, so wrong that it stuck in my mind. A woman CANNOT keep a man from seeing his children just because he is not paying child support. CANNOT. In the eyes of the law, paying child support and spending time with your children are two completely disparate things.

Although I agree with some of the other reviews regarding the sentence and grammar structure, I was impressed with the story line and became instantly involved. I honestly couldn't put it down until I had to but then come right back eager to find out what was going to happen next. I would recommend this book to anyone!!

The storyline started off ok but the writing was rather stilted and didn't flow well. As the book progressed this became rather irritating as the characters' conversations weren't natural. The speed of the relationship development between Savanna and Jason just wasn't believable and the love scenes were poorly written. I struggled to finish this book.

This title came up as an Amazon suggestion. I don't often read romantic fiction with Fire Fighters (I love them) and at $1.99 and so many great reviews, how could I go wrong? Well this is not the first book I have encountered with poor editing, but this was one of the worst. The story is not compelling enough to put up with all of the errors in this text. I won't be reading stories by this author again.
