I have to be honest and say that I didn't know what to expect from Alexis Alvarez, A Handful of Fire is a emotional story that is perfectly written and blew me away. This story goes deep emotionally and physically... because heartbreak was felt during my read.
Gabriel Baystock is rich and powerful, he sure does exude that the first time you meet him. His looks will blind a person to his personality that is arrogant, cold and distrusting, those qualities will be overlooked by his eyes, his smile and his flirtatious ways.
Gabriel is a single father who knows heartbreak all too well. His son Michael maybe a handful but he has his reasons and you will soon find out that Gabriel also has his reasons to keep his distance from falling in love and allowing others into their lives.
Shai Bonaventura is a award winning therapist, that is hired to help Micheal deal with his anger and emotions and she instantly falls in love with this young man. It's falling in love with his father that will be crossing professional boundaries. Shai has a past and those demons keep taunting her with her line of work, will she be able to put aside her past to help the Baystock family or will her demons be to much for Gabriel and Shai to handle?
A Pocketful of Fire is more than just a story, there is a lesson between the lines- a lesson of love and losing it, letting go of the past to be able to reach for the future you want and open your eyes to what's in front of you and don't let making new memories and love past you by. Alexis Alvarez leaves us with a story that will have your emotions all over the place, loving and hating characters and this story not only touches your heart it is filled with passion and abundance of heat that will have your skin crawling. That passion is not only in the connection it is a slow tease in the making from the moment Gabriel and Shai meet. This is a 5 Star Must Read. I recommend tissues near by, it pulls at the heart with a very realistic and strong subject matter.
