All the couples ride the rollercoaster of love, pain and self gratification only to realize, that maybe their lives weren't so bad after all.

Oh boy, this book had me sucked in so deep I felt like I was there watching everything unfold and still had my jaw dropped at the end. I figure this is a new author so I must say I can't wait until the next one. It has to be and I will buy that too.

I can't even pick the right words to describe how much this book drew me in! The 80/20 rule applies to this story. I appreciate that this was a novel, well written, and interesting. These characters were believable- I fell in love with Lyndsay on the first page. Just over 900 pages of pure good reading. I finished this in one day believe it or not, I just couldn't wait to see what was gonna happen next! The ending was a bit of a cliff hanger so I am going to assume that there is a sequel out there somewhere. If not, please-please-please give it to your new fan! Hat's off to the author- job well done!

I really enjoyed this book. Please say there will be part two to this book. There's a lot of unfinished business with the two main couples.

When I first got this on my nook and saw over 900 pages I thought it would take forever to read, but it is a good quick read. I really liked this book but the ending was very abrupt. But I would recommed it to friends.

I read this and it took me back to my college days. I had an Eric too and still do. It was good and now my husband is reading it. I happened to meet him at college and yes after 11 years we are still together. I enjoyed the story and I need to know what's going to happen next. There has to be a part 2. I am even breaking out Dru Hill to help me down this trip back down memory lane.

"Fannin' Old Flamez" tells the story of former school mates that reunite at a birthday party. Eric and Lyndsay were college sweethearts with a promising future until Eric cheated. Austen, another school mate, picked up the pieces of her shattered heart. Now so many years later, seeing each other at the party may make them realize that the past isn't really so far off. Troy , a former professional football player and the birthday boy, has dipped in and out of Shay's life for years, and Shay has allowed it. Turning forty has made Troy realize it's time to settle down. But is Shay on the same page or is Troy too late? Ripe with potential and promise as the situations and characters are drama waiting to happen, the author does not deliver. Neither bad nor good, "Fannin' the Flamez" is just okay. This novel could have been explosive but lacks any real excitement, frills or thrills despite the drama, lies and betrayals. I never really connected with any of the characters. Add to that there is no real concrete timeframe. Things were happening but readers didn't have an understanding of when, which could have added strength to the story. There are also quirks with the editing, though not enough to cause a major distraction. "Fannin' the Flamez" is an average read. But with an industry oversaturated with books and authors, average will quickly be forgotten. I wouldn't count Tracy L. Cooper out as it was not a bad book, but I recommend she focus more on the development of her plot and characters with emphasis on showing rather than telling (and only what's relevant), which will result in a stronger and more interesting story.
