    Eli Bishop is a firefighter in Hope Falls. Back when he and Makenzie Sutton (Kenzie) graduated high school they were planning on leaving and eloping. Something happened and Eli joined the marines without talking to Kenzie. Kenzie was heartbroken and has still not gotten over it. It's 12 years later and Kenzie is back in Hope Mills filming a documentary on Gabe who is a fighter that had to quit for a few years while he battled cancer.

Kenzie was heartbroken and has still not gotten over it. It's 12 years later and Kenzie is back in Hope Mills filming a documentary on Gabe who is a fighter that had to quit for a few years while he battled cancer. Kenzie did not know that Eli was living in Hope Mills and is caught off guard when she walks into the gym where Gabe is going to practice and sees Eli. Eli thinks Kenzie is still married (she is divorced) and doesn't have a chance with her. Eli's cousin Deanna is trying to throw them together. This is another wonderful love story in Hope Mills. Eli is such a good man and is always trying to help people. He is still so in love with Kenzie, but hasn't wanted to tell her why he left as he doesn't want her hurt because of another person that she loves. Kenzie has never found anyone she loves like Eli, even her ex-husband. I loved Eli and Kenzie's story from high school until present day. There is one person that I did not like in the book, and you will know who it is when you read the book. I strongly encourage you to read the book. I voluntarily read an Advanced Reader's Copy of this book.

I’ll let others summarize the rest of the story. I will go tell you that it’s a story about second chances. These two were very much in love and somehow, have been unable to forget that love, even though it was a painful separation. Circumstances are to blame for Eli’s disappearance, but because he didn’t want to hurt Kenzie, he’s kept the reasons a secret. But true love and second chances do prevail. These two will have a bumpy road but in the end their HEA will be sweeter. A touching heartbreaking and heartwarming story with a well developed plot and complex characters. I was gifted this copy. The opinions expressed are solely my own.

This is the thirteenth book in the Hope Falls series, but it can be read as a standalone and you would not feel lost at all. Eli Bishop and Mackenzie Sutton were next door neighbors as kids and shared a secret romance back during their teen years that they fully expected to end in marriage and spending the rest of their lives together. He had a dream of being a firefighter and she the dream of being a filmmaker, but little did they know that while their chosen professions might be what their futures held, their dream of being together might not be so easy. Many years later, Eli is living in Hope Falls working as a firefighter after finishing a stint in the Corps. While he still misses Mackenzie, and knows that she was "the one" for him, he has tried to move on with his life the best he can. Mackenzie is no more over Eli than he is over her, and when she returns to Hope Falls to film the documentary she is working on with fighter Gabe, who is just returning after beating cancer, she is stunned to learn that her former flame is back living in their hometown. The chemistry is still palpable between the former flames even as they both try to fight their attraction and the pain of their pasts. In the end, Eli and Mackenzie are given a second chance at romance, but will they be able to come clean with each other and deal with the hurt and secrets that have been keeping them apart for so many years? I love the writing of Melanie Shawn and how effortlessly these books always flow. The characters are always strong, the story line engaging and you always want to see how they get to their happily ever after! I loved this second chance story because things were not as they seemed when Eli made the choice to walk away from Kenzie. He would have done anything to stay, but in the end his choice all those years ago really showed the man he truly is. I'd highly recommend this book!

    It’s always so wonderful to return to Hope Falls, Melanie Shawn’s creation of a town filled with warm caring citizens, extended families, and of course the proverbial alpha males and sassy females, ready to dose us with some heartfelt romance, heated passion and unconditional love.

The firefighter and the documentary filmmaker; dreams big and hearts filled with young love and a future they had planned breaks apart as circumstances pull them apart and sends them on a different course of life. Eli Bishop, and Mackenzie Sutton, years apart have created their careers as a firefighter and filmmaker respectively, and with Mackenzie coming to Hope Falls to make a documentary, fate seems to dangle a second chance with the promise of a white picket fence, two kids and a dog…. yet with so many unanswered questions burning between them, will the chemistry and passion be enough to give them a second lease of life? As always, visiting Hope Falls is a pleasure, as you re-visit the founding characters and briefly glimpse how their HEA has turned out, and with the sister duo of Melanie and Shawna adding “Fire And Love” between Eli and Mackenzie, how can the story not be charming and heart warming. As always reading Melanie Shawn is just loads of fun, followed by tingling sensations, heart palpitations and intense satisfaction of reading a good romance that warms the heart and brings immense pleasure. Received an ARC from the author for an honest review.

Six months ago he ran into his childhood sweetheart in Vegas & hasn't been able to get her out of his mind. On the day they were to elope, he'd left town & enlisted in the military. From her attitude, even though she'd apparently moved on & got married, she still hadn't forgiven him. Why couldn't he get her out of his mind? Mackenzie Sutton is filming a documentary following an MMA fighter through training to a big fight. The fighter, Gabe, is Hope Falls fire chief's cousin & Gabe is going to train in Hope Falls. Mackenzie is excited about the opportunity to see Gabe get the acknowledgements he deserves but also to spend time with her best friend, Deanna again. She just isn't aware the Eli lives in Hope Falls too. The writing duo of Melanie Shawn has done it again. Eli & Mackenzie are a great couple. All of the characters are well developed & three dimensional. The readers are engaged from the very beginning by Eli & the idea of a broken engagement. The interactions between Eli & Mackenzie keep you involved due to the chemistry & the fight to resist it. The town of Hope Falls has so many wonderful characters & it's great to catch up on them. This is one series I don't think I'll ever tire of.

There was one scene for me that stood out. It was when Eli found out Mackenzie was no longer married. Eli had to leave because of a fire emergency, but the favor he asked her made me swoon. Right then and there, you can tell Eli was going to fight for her. There are still some secrets from the past. What happens when the truth comes find out? Will Eli and Mackenzie get their happily ever after? "Fire and Love" was a quick read for me. It made me swoon and was a beautiful story! Wonderful job by the sister duo of Melanie and Shawna! Looking forward to the next book in this series!

    Returning to Hope Falls sort of feels like coming home, so many memories there with people you have grown to care about. And it was nice to run into couple characters from the original cast, I swear I had this smug smile on my face while reading about the book club 'I knew them way before...'. Hah.

And it was nice to run into couple characters from the original cast, I swear I had this smug smile on my face while reading about the book club 'I knew them way before...'. Hah. Eli Bishop and Mackenzie Sutton have that special bond of a teenage first love. But the love they experienced at the young age wasn't puppy love, it was one of those rare occasions where the young feelings take a deep root, where the intentions are sincere and the desire to build a future together is real. But life happens and they are torn apart without a word of explanation or a goodbye. Eli, the kind and considerate firefighter, who is always willing and able to extend a helping hand, who cares and take care of people around him, is genuinely a nice guy. He has that boy next door vibes, he adores his mom and has a great relationship with his parents. He would do anything to protect his family and is not afraid to stand up for bullies. His feelings for Mackenzie are bottomless, passionate, and true. He knows what he lost a long ago when he walked away from her and is now willing to do the hard things, to have the difficult conversations, to be vulnerable and open to get her back, if only she would give him a chance for that. Mackenzie Sutton had her heart broken by Eli when he walked away without a word of explanation. She has done her best to built her life, to fulfill her dreams and goals, yet the yearning for more, the longing for Eli, and missing what they had has always been at the back of her mind. Mackenzie knows her feelings for Eli will always be there and can be ignited to a blazing inferno by one touch. To enjoy the physical connection and flame between them is one thing, to be open and talk about the past, the hurt and pain Eli cost her and the reasons for it is too dangerous for her peace of mind. The dance between Eli and Mackenzie and their flaming feelings is a beautiful, emotional, and adorable thing to witness. The palpable heartache, the tangible passion, the earnest feelings, adoration, and admiration they have for each other string all the feels of the reader, causing smiles and sighs throughout the tale. Fire and Love is a charming tale of first love, the kind of love that last a lifetime and no distance or disruption can dim its force or its fierceness. It is a story about a delicate second chance with love, a delightful new chance with the alluring fire burning in Eli and Kenzie for each other. It is a wonderful, smoothly flowing romance story that hits all the feels as it unfolds. ~ Four Spoons with a teaspoon on the side

They were planning their future together, but suddenly Eli leaves Kenzie the day before the biggest decision of their lives. He pulls the rug out from underneath her, literally.

Can these two move past their rocky history to get their HEA? Can Kenzie forgive Eli for how things ended so abruptly? Even more, can Eli give Kenzie the truth she deserves to hear? This book took some turns that I really wasn't expecting along the way. I thought I had things totally figured out, and boy was I wrong! The emotion captured me and just didn't let go until the end. I LOVED this book and definitely recommend it!

    I always love Melanie Shawn’s books. She just has a way of pulling you in and not losing your interest until the very end. Eli and Mackenzie’s love story had so much tragedy in it from the time they were younger. They fell in love at a very young age but Eli was from the wrong side of the tracks. They kept their relationship a secret but somehow Mackenzie dad found out and he drove Eli away.

    Mackenzie and Eli’s story is so heartwarming it will make you feel warm and fuzzy all over. I’m so happy that Melanie and Shawna are back in Hope Falls. This is such an amazing series and I love that we get to a small glimpse into how the characters from past books are doing! Eli is a standup guy who has always done the right thing his whole life even if it cost him the most precious thing he ever had. Mackenzie feels like she has life on lock, she has her dream job, a life in the big city, and Mackenzie and Eli’s story is so heartwarming it will make you feel warm and fuzzy all over.

Eli and Mackenzie heat up the page from the first time their eyes lock. I loved watching them rediscover the relationship that was taken away from them when they were younger. These two have to overcome a few hurdles to find their happy ending but when they do it’s so sweet you will be wishing there were more than a few pages left.

It was a fun, sweet, romantic read and I can't wait until the next book in this series.

Fantastic read by the fantastic Melanie Shawn!

    I can't say it enough, this series just keeps getting better and better and the "Melanie Shawn" duo amazes with every book they come out with! I waited a long time for this series to continue and after the last book, Lucky Kiss, I wasn't sure that any book could compete...however this book didn't dissappoint, AT ALL! I think my favorite thing about this series, besides the heart-melting romances, is that I get to enjoy past character reappearances through the series and we get to continue on in I can't say it enough, this series just keeps getting better and better and the "Melanie Shawn" duo amazes with every book they come out with!

I think my favorite thing about this series, besides the heart-melting romances, is that I get to enjoy past character reappearances through the series and we get to continue on in their stories as well. I love the entire Hope Falls world and all of the characters that live there. This love story was another heat-inducing, raging knockout of a read! I definitely didn't want it to end, like all of the books, they go by way too fast. The characters in this story were fun to get to know. I loved the struggle of past love being slammed together in the future and having to work through their struggles. The story was so well written and real. And the chemistry, you may need to fan yourself with this one! Melanie Shawn has an ability to keep readers engaged in the stories. They make you want to live with these people and be friends with them, I know I do! All of Melanie's books always have the perfect blend of romance, sex and plot. This can be ready as a standalone novel, even though reading just this book will not be enough, you will have to read the entire series!

    You have to love the quaint town of Hope Falls. Melanie Shawn spins a book that captivates their readers. You fall in love with the characters and cheer them on to their HEA. While it is part of a series, it's totally acceptable to read this as a stand alone. Kenzie and Eli get a second chance to get their love right. The writing is flawless and flowing. It's the kind of book where you wish you could jump into the pages and be friends with the characters. Dual point of view. No cliffhanger. You have to love the quaint town of Hope Falls.

    Loved, loved, loved this book!!! Kenzie tried to deny there was still a spark between her and Eli, but couldn't resist. I felt bad that they had been through such a tough past, and they both seemed to be fighting demons. Deanna had me cracking up throughout the story, and one of the fire calls may have given me a little anxiety. There was one certain character I would've loved to seen put in their place. Maybe disowned and outed. The perfect addition to the Hope Falls series, and one I would def Loved, loved, loved this book!!!

    This was a great read. It made me feel like no matter how many cards are stacked against you love finds a way. When it comes to Eli and Kenzie they are drawn to each other like bees on honey and when they come within touching distance sparks fly and we all get burned because that's how hot these two are. The story flows nicely and we just melt when it comes to Eli and his protective ways. No matter how much of a grudge Kenzie has she cannot deny the love and passion beneath the surface.

    Fire and Love by Melanie Shawn is a wonderful book! I was excited to finally read Eli's story. I loved the book, & really enjoyed reading it! It is a touching story about Eli, & his first love, Kenzie. They had been torn apart, by family interfering, & misunderstandings. Eli & Kenzie see each other in Vegas, after years apart. Both walk away from each other. 6 months later, their both in Hope Falls. Eli lives, & works there, & Kenzie is in town for a month, to do a documentary.

To their surprise, neither one knew, the other one would be there. But his cousin & friends did. Can Eli & Kenzie deny being in love with other, & that they belong together? ❤ Can't wait to read Gabe's story!! A MUST READ!!

    As always, Melanie Shawn delivers with this latest instalment in the Hope Falls series. The chemistry between Eli, the firefighter/paramedic/martial arts fighter and Kenzie, the documentary film maker, flies off the pages. They've got a love that stood fast, and comes back with a vengeance after years of separation, misconceptions, and forces that tried to keep them apart. When they are forced to face their past and finally get things out in the open, things really heat up. Loved this story.
