This is the first book I’ve read by L S Pullen and I absolutely loved it! The romance, the way their lives were intertwined, how the push and pull brought them back to one another. Fantastic. Five stars.
Can’t wait to read more by this author!

This was soooo good. I’m a sucker for a good love triangle. It doesn’t get better than twin brothers falling for the same girl.

I absolutely loved this book. It’s the second in this series, and it’s about Henry and Meghan. We first see them in Burning Embers, and their story is just amazing. Right from the start, you are hooked. And you fall in love with these characters. I was laughing, and at points it had me tearing up. You can tell the chemistry between Meghan and Henry. And while they fight their attraction, so they do end up hurting those they love, they finally give in. From page to page, you don’t want to put thi ...more

Just like the first book in the series, Midnight Embers had me emotionally invested from the first chapter. Henry was my favorite character in the story. My heart truly went out to him and everything Meghan and Clara put him through. The death through me for a loop. I knew it was coming, but not the way I expected. Meghan really started to piss me off halfway through the book. The back and forth between Henry and Ethan just made things more messy. The situation was already crazy to begin with. H ...more

I was really looking forward to reading Henry and Meghan's story. It was teased in Burning Embers and I really enjoyed seeing their story progress.
This tale takes place alongside Burning Embers, and I love seeing how the stories and characters inter twine, but you don't need to have read the first book to enjoy this one.
Henry and Meghan have been in each others lives since their teens and have kept their feeling about each other hidden well, but they soon realise that perhaps there is somethin

Meg is still reeling from her break up with Ethan...and then it happened... with Henry, Ethan's twin and her best friend's ex... how could this happen ? it's twisted and forbidden... why does it feel so right ?

I adored the first book of this series and anxiously anticipated the sequel. It was well worth the wait!
Henry and Meg's chemistry is off the charts, and while Reuben from Hearts of War is my ultimate favorite of Pullen's heroes, Henry might be 2nd place over Olly now!
It's not necessary to read the first book to enjoy this one, but you should just because it's so good. I always enjoy catching up with the characters in the Hearts series as well.

Can't wait for Forever Embers!

Henry and Megan wow

So if you are wanting swooning, dates and romantic moments this is not the book. If you want a page turning, twisted, angst, taboo this is for you. I wish Henry and Meg could have had more happy moments after they finally were able to be together. I actually loved Henry. He knew what he wanted and was actually ok with losing people so he could have it. I wish Meg would have had more back bone. All in all this book did have a happy ending. But from 1st page to almost end it was

The way Meg acted with Ethan (the twin she was involved with in the first place) I wasn't sure if this was going to be a love triangle or not. I also had a bit of trouble getting the straight of the story as I hadn't read the first book. I kept going as the story was interesting and I liked the writing style. In the end, I was happy I finished. I liked Meg (even though she cried- a lot) and Henry was a nice BBF. Their chemistry was fire and I enjoyed how they let everything go to get their HEA.

4.5✨ but rounded up as deserves it!! I was lucky enough to receive a digital ARC copy of Midnight Embers some weeks ago and only started reading Sunday eve. It’s now Tuesday morning and I’ve finished. I couldn’t put this book down. The balance of romance and angst is undeniably perfect. A great romance novel, my only issue was I wasn’t in a hot country laying on a beach reading it 🤣 it’s the perfect beach/holiday read with spice, lust and love!

Midnight Embers by LS Pullen. This is book 2 in the Embers series and can be read as a standalone although the characters from each story are interconnected. Meghan and Henry share more than just heated chemistry, there is no denying the feelings shared. But theirs is not an easy romance, it’s not only forbidden but slightly twisted as well. Not a lot of damaging drama, just enough to make things interesting. I enjoyed the author’s attention to detail, dual POV storytelling, charismatic setting, ...more

A good romance with characters that you can fall in love with.
The story flows well and there’s a few points where I was left tearing up or felt frustrated by the characters actions. A book that gives me those kinds of feels is certainly a good one!!

This was so good. It was great to get to know Meghan and Henry better. I liked them both because they were such a great characters. I liked that she was there for her friend and wanted to help her as much as she could. They have know each other some time because he is her ex-boyfriends twin brother. They tried to fight against their feelings because they didn't want to hurt anyone. Can't wait to read Ethan's book.

An ARC was provided in exhange for an honest review.

This is a whirlwind of a book! The love triangle between Henry, Ethan and Meg will keep you rooting for all three of them and I found their ending very satisfying. It’s also always nice to see the much loved characters from the author’s previous novels. L.S. Pullen has written another hot, steamy and compelling romance.

This book was highly anticipated by me. After reading Burning Embers, and then learning that a sequel was in the works, I couldn't wait to read what L.S. Pullen had in store for us. I wasn't disappointed. Meghan and Henry's story was amazing, & so touching. They had such a sweet relationship, even after everything that they had been through. I loved how L.S. Pullen weaved in the fact that Meghan was still dealing with the breakup with Henry's twin, Ethan, and how that played into the story. I wa ...more

Good story

Things I liked: the length of book, the h and H, the story.
I really did like that there was angst and confusion between the h and H due to the past relationships. I just feel like we never find out why the h was dumped in the 1st place. The kid thrown in the mix at the end was a bit rushed and we didn't get to see much interaction between the couple and the kid. I enjoy this authors stories and characters, but I really wish she'd do a great epilogue. I will probably read the next one.

This is the 2nd book I've read written by L.S. Pullen; I can’t wait to read more of her books.

This is the 2nd book in the Embers Series; it is a stand-alone book. The story is about Meghan & Henry; they are friends, he’s her best friend’s ex and her ex’s twin brother. I loved the chemistry between them.

I received a free copy of this book via booksprout and I’m voluntarily leaving a review.

We first meet Henry and Meghan in Burning Embers and now in Midnight Embers we get their story and oh what a story! They tried to do the right thing because they didn't want to hurt anyone but when you have chemistry like theirs you can only fight for so long. You definitely need to read this book and I'm looking forward to the next book in this AMAZING Series!

Come on Meg...

While I absolutely love this particular author's writing style and all of the European touches (think vocabulary), I found myself repeatedly very annoyed with our female lead. She was exhausting at times. Overall though this was a great book and I will definitely be continuing the series.

I was so excited to read this book as we got a little hint in the first book of this series Burning Embers. What a love triangle! It is her best friends ex and her ex boyfriends TWIN brother! It was such a good story and I loved all the characters. There is lots of angst and push and pull. it definitely keeps you on your toes and turning the pages! Another excellent addition to the series and i need the next book!!!
