Publisher's summary

Ahmalee makes candles. She never thought she'd spark a flame with Cain - a complete stranger.

A story of compassion that turns into passion.

Ahmalee Hayes’ world is interrupted when a homeless man loiters around her shop - Ivy and Eden Candle Company. Just when the business owner thinks she’s run him away, he shows up at her door - not at the shop again - and this time, he’s at her house! Can she see through the flames to lend a helping hand to a complete stranger or is the interaction too risky for the small-town candle maker? When I Needed You is book one of a two-part story. It ends in a cliff-hanger.

I Really Enjoyed This Listen

A great story about a woman with a big heart and a man who wouldn't give up. Book two is a "must listen to" also.

Surprise Ending

I was so excited to listen to this story. I have read both parts but having the audio version enhances the story for me. I love a good love story and Tina Martin does not disappoint. I hope that part two will come to audible soon.

Good Story

Interesting story the ending left me wanting more. The narrator was pretty good she spoke a little fast at times. Overall I enjoyed it.

Ahmalee is Sumthin Else

#ReveiwTyM: I have yet to read Flicker but read the first 2 in the series so here we go. I'd first like to say that Ahmalee is a special human. One whose heart is so pure that doing the things she did just came naturally. Had Cain Wesley been a creep, this could've gone a completely left. Thank goodness he wasn't because Ahmalee's guard was ALL THE WAY DOWN.

Cain is a 'homeless man' looking for food. After the initial shock, Ahmalee opens her life to him; feeding him & giving him a place to stay as he gets back on his feet. Accepting the help, Cain becomes a comfortable presence; helping out around the house, becoming a friend & someone to come home to. Only this is, this relationship was built on honesty with a huge secret hovering in the background. I mean... the feelings were honest and genuine @ least. Besides, the secret is not that he has a whole 'nother family and not really a deal breaker but (in my opinion) its the deceit thats the issue. The confession took ENTIRELY TOO LONG. He had SO MANY opportunities but I digress. Ahmalee's goodness also makes her naive. So much internal dialog in this book that I found myself like, "c'mon girl. Ask out loud!" Or "just tell her!" Anyway, if a book can evoke some type of emotion, the author has pulled you in and that's always good in my mind.

This was an interesting story. Reminding you that we are all different and our daily actions can change the loves of others as well as ourselves. Flicker remains on my list but it's not my next book. It'll be good to catchup when it's time. Until then...

PS. This book ends on a cliffhanger .

Wait a damn minute!!!

I was on edge because I didn’t want to see a love story of a woman falling for a homeless man. But let me tell you this story flipped my thinking and just the compassion a person can have someone to be better and help them through a struggle was beautiful. I’m pissed that at the end, this story leaves me on a cliffhanger and I’m NERVOUS BUT EXCITED FOR PART 2! Narration was really nice and this is my first time hearing this narrator.
