Sabine Beaudelaire returns to her hometown of New Orleans to the bedside of her favorite uncle, Sebastian Beaudelaire, who’s been in a horrific accident and lies comatose at a local hospital. Estranged for six months from her fiancé of eight years, she still hopes for reconciliation. Enter a gorgeous man she affectionately dubs “Hot IT Guy”, whose sex appeal—and open season at her family’s secret sex lair—fills her head with thoughts of propositioning a man for the first time.
When it becomes apparent she’s lost the love of her life to a more accommodating woman poised to give him everything he desires, Sabine’s hopes are shattered. With career benchmarks looming, Sabine is fulfilled by her work but lacking a love to call her own, a situation which Hot IT Guy, aka Xander “Fish” Fishbourne is eager to remedy.
Is it by coincidence or by design that Xander, her protective older brother’s high school friend who once admired her from afar, becomes her guest at the Den of Sin? Who cares? Her dormant libido needs a serious kickstart since she and her fiancé called it quits. But will this weekend of sexual freedom rekindle an old flame, or will it further complicate her already complicated life?
Rekindling the Flame is a second chance romance bringing an alpha hero back together with a woman he wanted before any other, and a heroine whose dominating older brothers shielded her from every man's advances. Now, they're together again at the Beaudelaire Big Easy Luau, a Den of Sin event where long held fantasies are made to be acted upon.
My Thoughts - Story
This was a great short read about second chances. After reading another book by this author in the Den of Sin series, I was pleasantly surprised of the depth of emotions. Ms. Lewis does a great job of taking an emotional story and compressing it into a short story.
I found myself remembering all the characters from the prior book I read and loved how they all continually make cameo appearances.
If you are looking for a book to escape the hum-drum of life for a few hours, these are definitely books that will deliver.
Think about this….
So, a relationship dies when you can’t give your other half what they want, but…
It happens with a random stranger, who isn’t really a stranger at all.
