Stealing Fire by Susan Sloate ~ Review ~

I hosted a blog tour for Stealing Fire by Susan Sloate a few months ago. The more I read about Stealing Fire during the tour the more I just had to read this book. It just sounded like a really awesome story and let me tell you I really was not disappointed at all. I really enjoyed this book. I found myself not being able to set it down. I just could not wait to see what was going to happen next or how in the world this wonderful couple was ever going to find their way together. 

Amanda Harary is trying to get a break in the musical business, however it's just not happening for her. So she is currently working at a hotel. She gets to met and talk to lots of interesting people and she is great at fixing any problem that may arise for their clients. When she meets Beau Kellogg, her life changes. She feels like she has met a real celebrity because she listened to the songs he wrote when she was a child. They were some of her very favorite. 

I love how these two make a connection over the phone without meeting for quite a while. I love that Beau gives Amanda confidence and I love that Amanda gives Beau the peace and tranquility that he needs to be creative again. 

There were so many things I truly enjoyed about this story. Their may be an age difference between these two but as I always say age is just a number. Does it really matter when you have found the love of your life? These two have a LOT of things that get in their way of being together. My heart broke for each of them many times through out the story. At one point I found myself with tears in my eyes saying to myself "please tell me this is not how this wonderful story is going to play out". It wasn't, the ending was not quite what I was expecting but I hope that it is leading where I think it was. 

This is the first book I have had the pleasure of reading by Susan Sloate, however I did host several tours for her books. They all sound great and I would love to read more of her work. I found her voice to be one that I truly enjoyed reading. So I know I will be stalking blog tours to host Susan again when ever she has another tour and I'll be looking forward to reading what ever she has out. 

I was given the opportunity to read this book so that I may share my thoughts with you. As always it has been my great pleasure to share my thoughts with you on Stealing Fire.
