Publisher's Summary

FLAME is a companion novel in the Spark series, but can be read as a stand-alone.

**An erotic romance-Mature audiences only 17+**

Carissa Wright doesn't do relationships.

Raised with a junkie mother and an alcoholic father, building relationships were far off her list. Rather, one night-stands were her usual.

Carissa has one constant in her life - her best friend Velaney. Completely opposite of each other, yet they balance each other out.

Although Carissa admits to only wanting sex and nothing more, will she allow the one guy who wants to break down her walls or will she run out of fear for finally letting her guard down?

She is unfamiliar with these feelings and wants nothing more than to walk away without a shattered heart. Will she be able to find the courage in order to turn her flame into a long lasting relationship?

With walls built up and emotions turned off, can she learn to put her heart on the line?

Or will each guy just be another flame?

Drew Finlay is a foreign exchange student from London. Studying abroad, he remains focused on school and football. It isn't until he meets Carissa that his consistent routine is interrupted. Knowing very well he'll be heading home in just a matter of months, Drew doesn't pressure Carissa into giving him more than she can give. However, once he falls for her... he isn't giving up.

Control, passion, and desperation.

He'll take her anyway he can have her...

    At first Carissa comes off as a very loose woman wanting nothing but the pleasure she can get from a man through the art of (let’s call it) love making. You get one shot and one shot only so do not disappoint the lady. For most of us ladies once twice a week would be enough but for Carissa once to twice a day is never enough. She will go from one man to the next not counting the hours between nor the men she uses to get the pleasure she craves. Then you learn her background and still think this should not have made you the way you are. As you go along through the book you come to understand her more. Even though I don’t agree with her in many areas I was able to come to understand her and her ways. It is all about control, being notice and getting attention as so many young teens do today. When I came to understand this I was able to relate to her very well.

    Ms. Langola does a wonderful job of narration given a powerful emotional listen giving the whole audio a realistic feel. If I didn’t know better I would have thought she really was in the act of making love. Her performance was very emotional at times. Through her voice you can feel each pain, tear, confusion, joy, sorrow and so much more. This story needs a powerful narrator and Ms. Langola has no trouble delivering, her performance is outstanding making the listener see and feel each emotion. Her female voices were just as great as her male, you always know who is talking and what each are feeling. She really bring this audio alive leaving your imagination running wild as it takes over playing out each scene. There are no background noises, no volume change or any repeat of words. The audio is clear, clean and crisp giving you the feelings of true pleasure Carissa feel at every touch and the pain from her past. This is by far the best deliverance Ms. Langola has done so far. She delivers a very powerful audio that I truly got lost in. There are scenes here that will just about bring you to tears with this narrator she really pulls on your emotional strings.

    The author gives you a wonderful plot, at first I didn’t care to much for it but as she lays it out you are pulled in with mixed emotions and then with powerful ones. There are many surprises some good, some not so good. One thing for sure your heart will break as the chips fall and come back to life as they are put back together again. Not much can be said or it will take away from the plot but you are in for some major tail spins to heart break, confusion and last of all a love that will last. The plot is based on the wild world of sexual pleasure and what you can get out of it without giving of yourself. It has a few twists and turns but ends on learning to love yourself and finding the one someone who will be your world. There are some very touching scenes as she relives her past and comes to face it so she can have a future but will it be to late when he takes off to go back home? So many things can happen you won’t believe how this plays out. I was almost in tears when the chips fall. Oh the heartbreak Carissa felt, I have to say I was right there beside her wanting to grab her and hold her tight. What it all comes down to is a slow start that start off like most of your erotic stories but takes a twist that will hold you spellbound.

    This is good book, not great not bad but good.


    What did you like best about this story?

    I loved Drew, and i just loved the British bro.


    Have you listened to any of Lia Langola’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    No this was my 1st listen of Lia's and I loved her!


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    A little of both, towards the end. I will keep you guessing.

    "Wow, great story!"

    I loved this story! It is a sexy, hot romance! I will warn you, bring tissues! It made me laugh and cry.

    Carissa had a bad life growing up. With her mom being a junkie and her dad a drunk, then her first boyfriend dumps her in front of the whole school, Carissa swore she would never get close to anyone again. Now Carissa works in a bar and has sex with anyone and everyone once or twice. Carissa states upfront, she is only interested in sex then leave.

    One day Carissa meets Drew. As much as Carissa fights it, she is falling for Drew. Drew is different from any man she has ever met. Drew is also from London complete with the accent. Carissa decides she can keep him around until he graduates and goes back to London. When the times comes, how will she ever be able to let him go?

    The author, Brooke Cumberland did a great job writing this book. The plot is good, the excitement is there and even loads of emotions. The narrator did a great job delivering this story to us too! With multiple voices and accents (loved the Brit accent), The narrator made this story easy on the ears. Listening to this book was like listening to a movie! Kudos to you both!
