Publisher's Summary

Gabe Sterling and Danny “Murder” Murdoch carry heavy baggage from the past and have no real reason to be drawn to each other. When they find themselves in an odd sort of friendship, both men are interested in more, but neither thought love was going to be part of the deal. 

With a younger nurse who has an affinity for lace and an older mechanic with a tough reputation, Hearts Aflame is a steamy, friends-to-lovers, opposites attract, gay romance. 

This is the third book in the Forged in the City series.

Sweet, opposites attract, friends to lovers romance!

This is the final book in the Forged in the city series and I'm not ready for it to end yet. This series is absolutely brilliant!
Gabe and Danny were absolutely adorable and I loved their friendship.
The author's writing as always was fluid and easy to read. The entire world building for this series is fantastic. Bob Brill did an amazing audio delivery as usual.

If you like a sweet friends to lovers, opposites attract romance, low on the angst and with all the feels this is for you.

Last of this Series

This is book 3 of Forged in the City but really it is book 6 if you count the Silver in the City trio as well.

This was my favourite pairing by far. I adored Gabe and his outlook on life and his nervous chatter. Danny is the strong quiet type and the two together were just fabulous. I want a relationship like this one. This was a great listen.

I absolutely adored Hearts Aflame

Hearts Aflame by A.D. Ellis, and narrated by Bob Brill was an amazing story about two men who came from troubled backgrounds. Much like all of A.D. Ellis's books, the story was well written, the world was well developed and the characters had so much depth that it was unbelievable!! I thoroughly enjoyed this book.

As for the narration, I'm quite picky about what books I listen to. The narrator has to keep my interest as much as the author does otherwise I give up on it quickly. Bob Brill is one of those Narrators that I've fallen in love with while listening to the Forged in the City series.

I highly recommend this series, author and narrator.

Fantastic Story & Narration🎧 Steamy & Heartfelt!

I have been loving this awesome series, it is enjoyable, entertaining and contains a whole lot of heart. A.D. Ellis is a gifted author, I enjoy her writing style and creative mind, the characters and their stories are realistic, easy to relate to and connect with. Each book in the series features a different couple, from when they first meet and get to know each other to their growing relationship and love. This is Gabe Sterling and Danny “Murder” Murdoch’s story. Danny is a mechanic Whitfield’s Motorcycles and Gabe a nurse who winds up renting the apartment above the shop. Danny is quiet and keeps to himself, Gabe is the complete opposite, he is a motor mouth and just keeps going. The two hit it off right from the start and it does not take Danny long to figure out how to quiet Gabe, LOL. I loved these two together, both have some issues and history but l liked how it is handled and how excepting they were of each other, also liked Gabe’s connection to the Silvers. This book is beautifully plotted, the story flows nicely and there is never a dull moment. There is drama, a touch of angst, a nice twist with the Silvers, plenty of heartfelt and emotional moment and some hot romance. It was great to see some of the characters from the first two books too. A.D. Ellis, thank you for another fantastic novel!

🎧📚🎧 And for the wonderful narration, Bob Brill is a talented narrator and voice artist. He does an awesome job portraying the characters, bringing them to life, giving each their own voice and personality. I love how he takes a character and makes it his own, playing the role with perfection and sounding just as I picture them to sound. He is an entertaining storyteller and a pleasure to listen to. Thank you for another fabulous listen🎧

Enchanting and Emotional Love Story

The only thing wrong with this book is that it is the last book in this amazing series. As for the book, I absolutely loved it. Take one constant talker add a quiet introvert and you get a couple meant for each other. Gabe is the first person to really get to know Danny. The others just thought he was a loner. Both men have had troubled pasts. It is so refreshing and endearing to watch their instant chemistry grow into love. They not only find each other, they find a family that they never expected. There will be plenty of laugh out loud moments, especially with cats. I also love that we get to revisit with wonderful friends from previous stories.

Bob Brill does an amazing job of portraying the emotions and personalities of these characters. His voice brings them to life as he paints a vivid image of them with his voice. The characters have distinctive voices as you would want them to have.

I highly recommend this Audible book. A. D. Ellis has given us a wonderful book family to love and cherish.it's hard to see friends leave but I will revisit them as I listen to these books again.

emotional listen

The last book in the series does not disappoint, and is just as heartwarming as the other 2, but more emotional for me. Healing love overcomes past baggage for both men.I loved seeing the trust and love help bond the two. I enjoyed the pop ups of past characters. I love loved Danny and Gabe's talk to dad. Powerful. I enjoyed listening to all three books and seeing them chose their families and love. I voluntarily listened to a free copy of this and am giving an honest review. The narrator did an exceptional job.

as good as the ebook

The story is always 4-5 stars, because if I wouldn't like the story as ebook, I wouldn't listen to the audiobook. I can't listen to an audiobook without knowing the book, that's not possible for me.

The performance from the narrator is also very important for me. I can't listen to a lot, because my English as a non-native-speaker isn't so perfect to follow a whole story over hours, when the narrator speaks too fast or too sloppy. Normally I have to SEE the person, who is talking to me in English. It took me a little bit, to come into the narrator, but at the end, it worked. I only have to take a few breaks between. I'm just not yet finish with the book, I’m over the half, but I listen enough to give a review.

PLEASE READ MY RATING SYSTEM!!!

To my ratings:

5* - very very good
it's like an A+

4* - very good and will be often re-listening
it's like an A

3* - it's more then a one-time-listening.
it's like a B

Gabe and Danny find family & live

I couldn't wait to finish this last installment in the Forged in the city (3) series. The flow of the story is natural and before you know it you are a couple of hours into it.
Gabe, a nurse and half brother of two of the Silver men, and Danny, a mechanic in the shop below his apartment, hit it off. Gabe gets Danny out of his shell. They find friendship and later love with eachother and find a family, the both craved,of there own making in the process.
I recommend this book to anyone who likes mm books with a HEA and no angst.
The narrator is as good as in the previous books

A really great end to this series!

I really enjoyed this book so much! I loved Gabe to pieces, for being so young and having grown up very lonely he’s loving and caring and I love that he is unapologetically himself, from his love of lace to his nursing career. And his positive and brilliant attitude is what worms its way with Danny, first coaxing him into a friendship and then lighting up the normally broody and silent biker, so much so that his friends hardly recognize him with how much he smiles!
Another tale of found family and unconditional love with a wonderful crew of friends whose bond idìs thicker than blood!

I loved this audiobook!

Wowie, smoking hot with a little kink!

Hearts Aflame is the third and final book in this series and boy is it hot. Lace panties may have something to do with that! 😊 While I enjoyed Bob Brill's narration of the first two books, I think he did a fantastic job with this one. I could finally tell a lot of difference in the character voices he used and felt like he performed this book rather than just narrating it. I would definitely listen to more by him if he does any more MM romance books.

Gabe is a nurse and nothing at all like motorcycle mechanic, Danny Murdoch, but right when they first meet, they pretty much click. Well, at least Gabe is super curious about Danny and wants to get to know him better. Danny is very reserved and isn't used to participating in conversations with more than one or two words or grunts. Gabe can't seem to stop talking around him and kissing Gabe seems to be the best way for Danny to shut him up. Danny quickly becomes completely enchanted with Gabe and vice versa.

I loved how these two guys interacted with each other. I especially loved how Gabe was able to bring Danny out of his shell; he become a much happier person. It is sort of an insta-love story but I don't mind those. In the beginning they talk about becoming friends-with-benefits but it doesn't take long for them to know that they have something much more than that.

Both Danny and Gabe have things in their past that make them insecure about their self-worth but together they are able to put that behind them and realize that they have something that can really last. Parts of this story made me tear up – a couple of side characters have health challenges – but parts of it are also really funny. It's hilarious to hear a couple of senior citizen ladies talking about sex and sex toys. (I can say that since I am a senior citizen myself. 😊)

If you've read, or listened to, the Silver in the City series you should really enjoy this book as the "porn" brothers finally get what's coming to them. I'm sorry to see this series end but I know A.D. Ellis will have something new coming for us soon.

A complimentary copy of this audiobook was provided to me but my review was voluntary and not influenced by the author and/or narrator.

Lace and a charming story

Story: A charming story with a dash of angst and kink to spice it up. The key strength of this story and series in general are the fascinating characters. Coupled with a very well executed found family concept, it makes for a very enjoyable read!

Narration: I really like this narrator's voice!

I love this!

Omgoodness I love this series and this book was my favorite. I hope there are more books coming. A nurse that has a thing for lace panties and a motorcycle mechanic that figures out that he also has a thing for Lacy panties. Not much drama. HEA. I love the characters and all their relationships. The narration was great. I actually listened to this twice in a row. So I definitely recommend this book/series.
