Rating: You Want to Read
One week before All Hallows Eve, the Jacobson sisters cast a circle and ask the Goddesses to bless them each with a man who will love them forever. Shy and often doubtful, Carly wants to find love but wonders how she'll do that when she can't even talk to a good-looking man, much less look him in the eyes.
The morning after performing the spell, the mysterious owner of the floral shop where Carly works shows up and attempts to sweep her off her feet. Not understanding her out-of-control attraction to him and scared the Goddesses have made a huge mistake, she runs out of the shop and away from Max.
With the help of her sisters, Carly performs a truth ceremony. Will she trust what she views in the fire, or lose the one man the Goddesses have chosen for her?
After three sisters cast a circle and beseech the Goddesses of the elements to bless them with their true love, Carly Jacobson gets more than she bargained for in Max, the enigmatic owner of the flower shop.
Truth of Fire is a quick hot read. Almost a little too fast. The story picks up just before the sisters begin chanting, and then moves swiftly into the next day in which Max meets Carly and then advances on her immediately, only taking time to send his other employee home. I felt rushed throughout the book romantically and never really grasped Max's point of view, leaving me with the feeling I was reading erotica with a potential happy ever after as opposed to erotic romance. I'm wondering if this was intentional on the author's part as Carly was the most reluctant sister. In any case,this is one you definitely want to read.
