I received a complimentary copy of this book from the author for an honest review. This is the first book in the Combustible contemporary romance series. I loved it! Mila Day is a wonderful character. I like her but she has a nasty habit of not seeing herself as others see her and constantly belittles herself. Whether this is because of her relationship with her ex-boyfriend, I am not sure. However, after breaking up with him, she decides to live on the wild side for one night and has a one night stand with "The Phantom of the Opera" at a costume party. That one night changes her life forever. Moving to a new town with her daughter six years later, she meets her charming new neighbour, Kyle Blake. Kyle Blake is also a wonderful character. I liked him a lot. He is kind, considerate and loving. It also doesn't hurt that he's a fireman. Who doesn't love a man in uniform? When he meets his new neighbour and her daughter, he is immediately drawn to them. When Mila's past threatens to tear her family apart, Kyle will do everything he can to keep them together. Having previously read paranormal romances written by this author, I was eager to read this contemporary romance. I started to read this book and quickly became hooked. The story is told through the eyes of both Mila and Kyle, which allowed me to see what they were both thinking and feeling. I found myself on a roller coaster of emotion from beginning to end. I am a sucker for contemporary romances with sexy firemen, so meeting Kyle's friends and colleagues was a thrill too. I also fell in love with Mila's daughter, Cherish. She is so cute and lovable. This story felt a little predictable as it followed the traditional romantic theme, but there's a lot of heat between the main protagonists which made up for it. The characters themselves felt lifelike and likable. I love flawed characters like Mila, as they come alive on the page. However, I think Kyle could have had a few more flaws as he felt a little too perfect to me. But, then again, what do I know? Other readers may think he is better without them. I'll leave you to make up your own mind. I reached the end of the book (which doesn't end in a cliffhanger) and was left with a happy, satisfied feeling. I am now looking forward to reading the next book in the series, Falling Star, as soon as possible. Brandy L. Rivers has written an entertaining contemporary romance series. I love her fast paced writing style, and the flow is wonderful. Her characters are lifelike and likable. With her ability to write in both the paranormal and contemporary romance genres, she is one of my go to authors when I'm in the mood for a sexy read. Due to explicit scenes of a sexual nature, as well as use of bad language, I do not recommend this book to readers under the age of 18. However, I do recommend this book if you love hot erotic contemporary romances full of sexy firemen and determined women. - Lynn Worton

I received this book from the author in exchange for an hones review. Mila Day is a person that always has a plan. She know what she wants and no one will change her mind. So when the guy that she's been dating in college wants her to give up dreams and be the stay at home wife. She walks away. She is brokenhearted when he doesn't try and win her back.So her best friend talks her into coming to party in the state state over. So she goes and plans to have a one night stand with no names no nothing.And that is exactly what Mila get plus something else. Six years after that night she has the one thing that she thought that she night never have. Now Mila is a single mom and teaching high school. Plus she just moved to another stated and started this job. Then she meets her new neighbor, Kyle, and gets a deja vu moment. Kyle Blake is a fireman that just got out of a bad relationship and not looking for another until he hears his new neighbors. But once he meets them he know he's hooked on the mother and her daughter. Kyle also gets this strange feeling that he's meet the Mila before but he's not quite sure how or why. Once he realize the truth will he be able to accept everything and forgive? Like I have already said before Brandy is one of my favorite authors. Every book that I read of her's I can't put down. So hats off to you Brandy. I recommend this author and book to others.

Heart on Fire by Brandy L Rivers I love Brandy more with each book I read.  Mila was hurt and looking to have one wild uninhibited night of fun to get over it before she moved on. Her heart was trashed and she swore off love.  Six years later her sexy neighbor seems to be the one to put her heart back together. Will he accept her daughter as part of the package or will he break her heart again.  I love this concept is sweet and refreshing. Depth in the characters makes this a real page turner. I couldn’t put it down. I was gifted this book in exchange for an honest review.

After being in a relationship with Paul for years Mila sees his true colors and calls it quits. With a little encouragement from her best friend Barb she decides to put Paul and their failed relationship behind her and have fun at a Halloween frat party. There she runs into a handsome man dressed as The Phantom of the Opera and he literally sweeps her off her feet. That one night has stuck with Mila for years to come. She got a precious gift that night, her beautiful daughter Cherish. Her only regret is ot getting his name or anything else so that she could let him know. She moves away from home for a fresh start and once again gets more than she bargained for. Kyle is entranced by his new neighbor from the moment he sees her and her little girl planting flowers in the garden. He hasn’t felt that instant attraction since long ago on Halloween night when a sexy Devil captivated him. The relationship is slow going at first since Mila has trust issues and Kyle has a crazy ex who just won’t quit. This book will captivate you and leave you breathless.

What a beautiful love story. The chemistry between these two was amazing, it was like they were magnets drawn to one another. I really did not like her ex he was a "douche" and his ex was an egotistical snob, let's just say I didn't like either one. I found this story heart warming because they had met, connected,and went their separate ways then nearly 6 years later meet again and the chemistry was still there and they still couldn't fight it. I got a little teary eyed a few times during some of the more dramatic moments and that's when i know it's a really good book, when i feel all the emotions right along with the book characters.

"A breath of fresh air into the concept of fate and destiny" Destiny and fate are terms easily thrown at readers to describe the connection that two characters may have. Oftentimes, the connections formed between characters come across more rushed than fated. I – for one – am many times a little skeptical about characters falling in love in a matter of a few dozen pages. I go along with the stories because as a reader I know that that is what is the norm in many novels. But Brandy L Rivers has breathed a breath of fresh air into the concept of fate and destiny – even true love with her standalone novel Heart on Fire. One moment can change your life – that’s what Mila learns after a night no strings attached fun with a man at a party. Six years later, Mila and her beautiful daughter move to a new town to start a new chapter in their lives. Never did she realize that everything she’s been looking for would find her. After being burned by past relationships, Kyle Blake is happy alone. When he hears his new neighbors, he can’t help but introduce himself. He finds himself drawn to the beautiful woman and little girl next door. As their pasts come to surface Mila and Kyle are faced with many questions. Will they be able to handle truths of their pasts? Mila and Kyle are written so realistically that the reader can easily find that they are slipping into the story themselves. At times you just want to shout the answers to questions at them, but know that they need to figure things out for themselves. Rivers has delivered a beautiful love story that shows how one choice can change your life, but a series of right choices can direct you to exactly where destiny and fate want you to be. She gives her characters such a deep and meaningful journey to fulfillment that for once, the belief in fate and destiny is not a stretch.
