4 star The story has laughs, betrayal, second chance at love, and heartbreak. This is Ava and Gavin’s story. Ava and Gavin were together years ago but after an incident she ran. 5 years later she meets back up with Gavin and he is better than ever. After deciding she will try and have a relationship with him she learns he is already attached to another woman. Gavin has some explaining to do about the other woman and what she means to him. Will Ava listen or will she just run again? I didn’t find the chemistry strong with these two as I thought it was going to be but it’s didn’t hurt the story any. I would have loved if the story was longer and you go to know the characters a little better. I felt I was able to connect with the characters and the story was a good read. I recommend this book and will continue with the series.
5 Stars This book was given to me for my honest review. “She slowly walked over to him and reached up on her tiptoes to place a sweet kiss on his lips. This would probably be the only time tonight that she would have to admire this beautiful man, so she was going to take her time” Ava Ava-scared, secure, pretty and outspoken Gavin-hunky firefighter enough said What would you do if your saw your past love again? Would you be happy or scared? Would you do anything for that past love to be your current love again? Well this is not this story. This is the journey of past loves that weren’t really past loves to begin with. This journey of Ava and Gavin’s is a unique one to say the least. She leaves and never looks back which is heartbreaking in itself but is leaving the right answer? And what happens to Gavin does he become the man that Ava always thought and knew he could be? Can he fight to be the one man that she always believed him to be? Can a chance meeting between these two be chance at all? Can the stars align themselves and have these two become one again? Or do these two just go on without knowing what could have been? This is their journey. To the author you did one amazing job with bringing the past and present of these two characters. Without any doubt this is the book for the ages of past and present. To the readers please take this journey of the never forgotten with me as I did them and entrance yourselves in one amazing read that will grab at your heartstrings from page 1 and not let go till the very end. Do these two find that their love has been so strong to withstand the test of time? Pick up this book to find out. Happy Reading
This was a fun but emotion packed read. I love the story from beginning to end. Very surprising twist and turns with this book. This book is going to have you laughing, crying and ready to fight! The story is well written and very well told. Keep you on the edge of your seat! Biting my nail for the next book! Ava is strong, determined and know what she wants. She refuse to let things hold her back. Gavin is the hunk of all hunks, model, firefighter and the guy with all the good intentions. They are on a roller coaster ride for a romance that leaves you wondering what is really going to come of it all.

He's not sure why she left but he will get her back because his heart never left hers. Just when Gavin thinks he has everything in life including Ava that he could ever want, a nasty little secret pops up. What will happen to these two hearts? From me... Gavin can certainly come put out my fire because he is HOT! This book had a little bit of everything. Great job, crazy best friend, drama and some really nice sex. I really did enjoy this book and I will give it a good 4 stars. The characters were great and I thoroughly enjoyed them. Gavin and Ava are fantastic together and what happens to them five years previously is just something that can be discussed and possibly worked through but no Ava freaked and fled. Gavin is a guys guy but still has a very soft spot for Ava. Take this journey on self discovery and love. Read this book.
Ava Kingston left her family's home five years ago and never looked back. After one night with her boyfriend Gavin Sawyer that could have changed her life forever. Now she is living in Chicago working towards a promotion for her dream job at Loop Magazine. Just when Ava is content in her life of family and amazing friends someone from her past comes back to shake things up. Gavin Sawyer is a Chicago firefighter who is a heart throb in the Hunks in Uniform calendar. Gavin only tried out for the calendar for Ava...knowing if he got in she would see and remember. He loved her and she ran. Now he will stop at nothing to get her back and find out why. Hearts on Fire is a romantic and intense story of two lovers finding their way back. There are not really any huge plot points. It is an everyday love story with ups and downs to get through to test their love. It seemed almost too light and fluffy. I don't really know how to explain it. There should have been more in my opinion. It felt like the few plot points were thrown in to make it longer. There could have been more character development. The reason Ava ran were, in my opinion, ridiculous. That reason for running could have been explained more and added some depth to Ava. Overall it was a sweet and romantic read it just seemed a bit rushed. *Reviewer for Paranormal Romance and Authors That Rock!
