Original review:

Jack Gellar and Molly Coleman have been best friends since they were little but when Jack lost his family, he gravitated towards a different kind of clique and left Molly behind. Jack became famous in his little hometown for being a notorious womanizer and he sets his sights on Molly, his childhood friend. Molly doesn’t want to be another one-night stand for Jack, so she rejects him and he leaves for college. What little there was left of their

Denise's Review

Can you go home again or did DJ Shadow get it wrong?

Molly hasn’t seen Jack in five years, and wasn’t quite prepared for his return. She remembers him as a cocky, womanizing playboy from school who nearly conned her into sacrificing her virginity. While she can’t say she’s thrilled to see him again, she likewise can’t deny the magnetic pull between them.

You know the story....'the last thing the heroine needed in her life was...'

Well, when Jack Gellar comes back to town after five years, Molly Coleman tries to tell herself he's the last thing SHE wants to see because their last experience together ended in her hurt feelings; however, her heart doesn't agree and old, sweet feelings are rekindled.

If the love of your life, who broke your heart, walked back into your life at one of the worst times in your life, would you welcome him back into your arms? This story follows such a line, with a few added plot twist, that make you wonder if the characters will have their happily ever after, or lose the one that could make them happy. The characters are realiztic, they're stubborn, and yet want to protect their loved one, laugh a little, play a little and work at overcoming what life throws the ...more

Down in Flames is a sweet, sensual love story that will warm your heart. Molly and Jack are well-rounded characters that you'll be rooting for to the end. I could almost hear the cicadas as I read this book! The author creates a setting you can slip into and enjoy!
