Xander has wanted Sabine for years and as her brother’s best friend he was able to forgo the introductions and head straight into showing her how she is supposed to be treated now that she was an adult and big brother wasn’t there to prevent his moves. He is determined to show her not all men are like her ex fiancé and that commitment could be a beautiful thing, if she would only give it a chance.
As with every book in this series it is on the hot side of passion. The week they share will leave you melting and reaching for cool water, so it isn’t a good plan to read this in public. He is going to take her to heights she never knew existed and show her what she has been missing out on with other men, leaving the readers jealous that we can’t book a week in The Beaudelaire ourselves.
If you are looking for a short story that is full of steamy passion, second chances and dreams come true then you have found it with Rekindling the Flame.
Still in her twenties, Sabine Beaudelaire isn’t ready to settle down and have a family yet, so her fiancé of several years has broken off their engagement. When Sabine travels to her hometown to visit a favorite uncle who’s been in a car accident, she meets “Hot IT Guy” and decides she deserves a fun fling, and he’s just the guy to fit the bill. What she doesn’t realize is Hot IT Guy is actually Xander Fishbourne, an old friend of her brother who was always interested in Sabine but never allowed to pursue her thanks to her brothers’ protectiveness.
Now that Xander and Sabine are old enough to make their own decisions, their week together becomes hot and full of passion. Xander, having divorced a few years ago, is ready to see where the relationship can go, even if it means doing the long distance thing once Sabine returns home. But Sabine is reluctant, and she ends up leaving without a word to Xander. A change in circumstances leads Sabine to need Xander more than ever. But she’ll have to fight to get him back after the way she ended things.
Rekindling the Flame is part of the Den of Sin series, which is a series of books written by four different authors where the characters overlap. Each standalone story revolves around a New Orleans hotel, aptly nicknamed the Den of Sin for its secret activities. This particular story was set at the hotel and some Den of Sin activities were taking place, but the characters never got a chance to participate. Instead, they made their own heat together.
The novella featured a strong female lead who had to learn that independence and love were not mutually exclusive. Sabine knew she had more to accomplish in her professional life before she was ready to start a family, but just because her ex wasn’t willing to wait for her didn’t mean no one would be interested in taking things at her pace.
Xander, on the other hand, had shied away from relationships since his divorce, but he knew a good thing when he saw it. He was determined to grab his second chance with Sabine and hold onto it with both hands.
Overall, this was an enjoyable, sexy little read. *There could have been a little more development to Sabine’s feelings for Xander, but the story was believable and fun. I’d recommend it, and I’d be interested to read other stories in this series as well as more by this author.
*Update: Nothing pleases me more than an author who listens to her readers and is willing to take constructive criticism into consideration. After posting the above review based on the ARC of Rekindling the Flame, L.V. Lewis contacted me and thanked me for my opinion, and she also mentioned she was planning to make some revisions to the story based on my comments. I am happy to say I have read the revisions and they have changed my rating of the final product to five stars. Where I once felt Sabine’s feelings for Xander to be lacking, the story now shows a realistic progression and more believable relationship. I’m thrilled to be able to call this a five-star read now, and I look forward to reading more by this author.

I love a good yarn about second chances at love, especially when it's sexy, and that's what we get with Rekindling the Flame. Our main characters are about to discover something they both thought they would not have... Set in steamy New Orleans, we know we're in for a great ride with this sexy, sassy story of Sabine and Xander and how a chance encounter leads to so much more.
Sabine longs to get over losing the man she thinks is the love of her life; Xander is a man from her past who has loved her from afar. And when Sabine understands she's lost her chance with one man, she inadvertently embarks on a one-night stand with the hotel IT guy--the best friend of her brother. What should only be a one-night stand becomes a week of passion at the hotel Sabine's family owns. And two people who thought they could not have what they want, understand they can have it all. L
Loved how we were able to get both sides of the story, learning how Xander's divorce has led him to give up on love, and how Sabine thinks independence and love cannot be possible together.
Two thumbs up from me!
