Présentation de l'éditeur

He wanted a boyfriend. What he got was a hero.

Fire and Rain, Book 1

When an accident burns down Jesse’s apartment, he’s left broke and homeless, with a giant dog and a college schedule he can’t afford to maintain. And no family who’s willing to take him in.

Lucky for him, a sexy fireman offers him a place to stay. The drawback? The fireman’s big Latino family lives next door, and they don’t know their son is gay.

Tomas’s parents made their way in America with hard work and by accepting help when it was offered, so he won’t let Jesse drop out of school just so he can afford a place to live. Besides, Jesse’s the perfect roommate—funny, sweet and breathtakingly cute. He climbs into Tomas’s bed and tugs at his heart. Until Jesse starts pushing for more.

Their passion enflames their bodies but threatens to crush Tomas’s family. Tomas is willing to fight for Jesse, but after losing everything, Jesse isn’t sure he can bear to risk his one remaining possession—his heart.

Warning: Contains an angry older brother, judgmental best friends, a slobbering bull mastiff, and enough red-hot gay loving to make a porn star blush.

HASH(0x96509bb8) étoiles sur 5 A bit unexpected but an enjoyable romance 25 août 2013
Par Nic - Publié sur
Format: Format Kindle Achat vérifié
This wasn't the book I was expecting - I was hoping for more action and more heroics of the physical kind - instead it was a journey with heroics of a more emotional kind.

I quite liked the combination of Jesse and Tomas - in the beginning it wasn't all fireworks but there was something special about each of them and they somehow worked together. I didn't quite understand their immediate attraction and why Tomas would put himself out there to bring Jesse into his home, so near his family, particularly his brother with his homophobic attitude.

Tomas was a puzzle. I struggled to understand the way he thought about sex and what he deemed was acceptable behaviour. I loved that he was respectful of Jesse and didn't want his actions to demean him, but his ideas seemed a bit odd. Plus he seemed to resolve, what were seemingly deep rooted ideas, pretty quickly. Once they started having sex it was pretty passionate!

Other than those minor points, it was an enjoyable story and provided an interesting take on how one man accepts his sexuality with the love of another. I also loved seeing Jesse blossom under Tomas care, become part of the family and bond with his dog. After rejection by his family and losing his home and all his possessions, he definitely deserved his happy ending!

HASH(0x96509e04) étoiles sur 5 Emotionally Intense & Richly Rewarding! 18 août 2013
Par J. Faltys - Publié sur
Format: Format Kindle
Daisy Harris has once again put readers through the emotional wringer with her latest release, From the Ashes, that brings together two completely opposite men struggling to deal with who they are amongst familial and societal pressure. Surrounding this intriguing main couple comes a colorful cast of secondary characters with baggage of their own whose stories I look forward to being told. Take all these facets and you end up with a super steamy story that moves at a sensual pace and resolves in an immensely satisfying way while leaving the door open to return to these appealing yet flawed characters in the future.

Jesse is a young man forced to make it on his own after his father throws him out after discovering him with his boyfriend. He's new to living the gay lifestyle and longs to experience everything it offers but still maintains a sense of naïveté and lots of blushing. He's barely making ends meet when a fire destroys his newfound freedom and he's left with only the clothes on his back and an unwanted dog who's as lost as he is. Luckily the protective instincts of firefighter Tomas kick in and what starts out as a short-term fix ends up becoming something longer-lasting and more profound. Jesse is immediately drawn to the strong, caring, and sexy Tomas and can't believe he wants to help him for nothing in return. He enjoys being taken care of and looks forward to the day he can call Tomas his boyfriend and do all the naughty things he's always dreamed about. I enjoyed Jesse's exuberance and agree with the description of him being puppy-like in being desperate to please others. He's comfortable in his own skin but respects the boundaries Tomas needs at first in order to accept his own sexuality. Coming from the stoic family that he does leads to his being hesitant in public displays of affection. He's also cautious in giving his heart to Tomas as he feels like he owes him for so much and doesn't want to confuse affection for appreciation. There are times though that his youthfulness becomes grating as he tends to pout and run when the going gets tough. He expects Tomas to always change to fit his needs but doesn't reciprocate as he handles their relationship as a child does early on as opposed to an adult. It's not until late in the story that I finally feel that they're on an even level which results in an immensely satisfying HEA.

Tomas has long known that he was gay though that part of his life is hidden as his family is very old-fashioned and couldn't cope with it, particularly his brother Diego who lays down certain rules in Tomas's sexual dealings with other men that have led to shame and guilt of himself and his partners. This has led to numerous alleyway encounters that have deepened the guilt and shame and almost destroys the relationship he and Jesse have just started. He's immediately drawn to Jesse's kind heart and desperately wants to protect him from hurt. He enjoys being his hero and taking the lead in their sexual encounters. Away from the prying eyes of family and coworkers he freely shows affection towards Jesse, particularly jealousy. It's not until he's threatened with the loss of Jesse's love that he stands up and admits wholeheartedly who he is and who he wants. From start to finish Tomas was a character I truly liked and cared for. I could understand his dilemma in not wanting to disappoint his family and how truly confused his brother made him and applaud how loudly he ultimately stood up for his relationship. I was left with a very heartwarming feeling seeing Tomas's family subtly accept Jesse and finally give him a place to call home.

Along with the internal struggles of the main couple we also met a few secondary characters with issues of their own. Jessie's friend Michael has especially been put through the wringer and it has left him bitter and held him back from finding a real relationship. Tomas's friend Rick considers himself a ladies man and never holds back in using sexual slurs. I think he protests too much though and believe that the fiery meeting between him and Michael will lead to something more in the future and I leave it in the capable hands of Ms. Harris to lead these bitter men towards a HEA. From start to finish I found myself fully immersed in the emotional issues of Tomas and Jesse and rooted for their HEA. Their sexual interludes were super HOT and varied but didn't distract from their character's development or the overall emotional impact of the story. Ms. Harris has become one of the authors I can count on for a richly rewarding m/m read and look forward to the next installment of this series.

HASH(0x96865060) étoiles sur 5 Very sweet but with realistic characters! 14 août 2013

I've read about 15 new releases in books in the last two weeks and this was only one out of all of them that really blew me away. The book description is quite accurate and the only thing I would add is the fact that Jesse and Tomas' relationship is wonderful because they just 'got' each other from day one. It was great to read about such a solid relationship between two very different people. Whatever challenges come up, and there were a lot of them, they face them together and put their relationship first. Their little apartment fixed up in a garage sounded very homey and comfortable. :) All the other characters were well-developed and the story was balanced nicely. Absolutely the best book I have read in a while! If you like this book you might like the manga, "Little Butterfly", Little Butterfly: Omnibus Edition (Yaoi) *coff* 'Little Butterfly' is expensive but you can google it and read it online too *coff* You'll want to buy it here then anyway.

Another good book like this one is He Completes Me (Home Series)...

HASH(0x96865204) étoiles sur 5 Didn't hate it, but I didn't love it either. 18 octobre 2013
Par Christina Marie - Publié sur

I didn't dislike From the Ashes, but I didn't have overwhelming feelings of love for it either. I don't have strong feelings about the book in either direction, and the characters didn't leave much of a lasting impression on me. I did find reading it enjoyable, but I promptly forgot most of what I read a day later.

Just some thoughts:

1. Closeted characters are kind of like Daisy's theme. It's her thing. But it's never the same experience, and I think she does it well.

2. So, as expected, themes of denial and general closetedness run rampant.

3. Jesse and Thomas fall in lust, and then love, rather speedily. Ok, really speedily. This usually has the unfortunate result of demolishing any chance of me becoming invested in the relationship.

4. Hotness abounds. It's not filled with smexin. BUT when it happens you'll know, because it's SO spicy.

HASH(0x968655c4) étoiles sur 5 Interesting Read 13 août 2013
Par LAS Reviewer - Publié sur

Sometimes when you lose everything, you find what you've always wanted. Jesse has just lost everything he owned in an apartment fire. He'd saved up and moved out of his parents' disapproving home finally but after only a short time, he's back to zero. Except this time without anywhere to go and a dog he's unexpectedly claimed. Thankfully, hunky firefighter Tomas offers his home to Jesse. With nowhere to go, Jesse accepts and the two immediately click. While they are exploring sex together in new ways for both of them, their relationship isn't quite as smooth sailing. Tomas is in the closet and Jesse is out and proud. The two struggle to find a middle ground.

From the Ashes is a nice story with a gentle romance. The two main characters, Tomas and Jesse, are friendly but have a definite attraction. Thus they get sexual pretty quickly, but with Jesse a virgin and Tomas having some sexual hangups, they ease into sex in a really nice progression. It fits with their relationship in general. However, Jesse is out and proud and insists on not hiding either who he is or who he loves. He can't understand Tomas' desire to be in the closet with his family, but eventually comes to recognize how Tomas' family operates. Both men must give a little to get a lot in return and their road has some easy bumps that doesn't upset the balance too much.

The characterization is nice and gives both men room to mature and expand. They're not perfect and definitely make mistakes, together and individually, over the course of the story. I had some issues with the way Jesse and Tomas would act, but appreciated that they could actually talk things over instead of assuming and running off, with one exception. I found some of the scenes overly melodramatic, such as the scenes with Jesse's parents. This scene and others, usually those involving the coffee house friend Michael, seem to add very little to the characters or the story. I think the author is setting up the secondary characters to have their own books but I never connected to them so felt these scenes were superfluous.

Harris' writing is engaging and easy to read. It has a melodic quality that fits with the characters and their romance. This isn't a hot and heavy read, but more so gentle and quiet as the two men slowly find their way to understanding and love. They certainly fall in love fast but that doesn't mean all problems are solved. It's nice to see that although they love each other too quickly, they still have to learn about each other and make mistakes to actually grow. I enjoyed reading From the Ashes and can recommend it for those readers who like a gentler, sweeter romance.
