 Brandon Gilbert has spent years in hiding, but finally he’s accomplished his dream of working as a public school teacher. When offered the chance to help bullied children, there was no way he could say no. Not to mention that meeting Dr. Tash Weber, the psychiatrist who helps them, a sad yet sexy older man, ignited a spark inside Brandon he’d never had before.

Though five years have passed since the death of his lover, Dr. Sebastian “Tash” Weber has no interest in relationships or love. But young, enigmatic Brandon awakens his heart and his desire. Despite Tash’s best efforts to push him away, Brandon unlocks the passion for life Tash thought he’d lost forever.

Falling in love wasn’t part of the plan for either Brandon or Tash, but neither family disapproval nor self-doubts can stop them from embracing the fire that burns between them. And when Brandon returns home to fight for a future he never imagined possible, he and Tash discover that the one thing worth fighting for has been with them all along.

Embrace the Fire is the third book in Through Hell and Back series by author Felice Stevens. I really loved this book so much.  Brandon is a character I could really love and connect with.  He is a school teacher, gay, and very reclusive.  He fears his past and so he cannot make a future until he over comes that fear.  He is a great teacher. He loves the kids, when he is asked to work and help bullied children he cannot say no.  But he fear saying yes. I like that his love for the kids over comes that fear.  Otherwise he couldn’t meet Tash. Tash he might be a man who usually flees from love, but Randy brings out the protector and lover inside him. He has two cats that love him. But when Tash learns the truth about Randy, can he forgive the lie, and help Randy overcome his past?  I liked Tash’s strength. He is a solid character with many levels of feeling.  I really adored how he loves Randy, both in and out of bed.  Tash is the man you want on your side when you are in trouble. He is a true friend who will always be on your side.
Overall this is a great read. Lots of emotional ups and downs. Lots of hot man love too to keep you turning the pages.  Well thought out story that makes me want to go back and read the previous books.  Oh, yes this to me is a standalone having not read the previous books I had no trouble following this story and loving it.
