    1. FLAME has a brand new cover!! Universal Link---> myBook/flameB&N---> bit/MrynxbBook 3 in the SPARK series. Can be read as a stand alone. This is Carissa's story.Note: This is an erotic romance.Carissa Wright doesn’t do relationships. Raised with a junkie mother and alcoholic father, building relationships were far off her list. Rather, one night-stands were her usual. Carissa has one constant in her life—her best friend Velaney. Completely opposite of each other, yet they balance e [...]

    2. ❞ANOTHER FREEBIE ❦ ANOTHER WINNER❞**YAY**I started this freebie with absolutely no expectations and never would have thought that I would enjoy it that much. FLAME is the third book in the Spark Series but can be read as a standalone. It's about CARISSA. Your typical damaged heroineRISSA doesn't do emotions. CARISSA only does sex. Well, until she meets DREW. The gorgeous and delicious exchange student from London. There's something about him she can't resist.The main reason I liked this bo [...]

    3. I have been in a MAJOR book slump. So picking up Flame to read I knew would be tough. I almost waited to read it because I am a huge Brooke Cumberland fan and I didn't want to be persuaded that this would go down in flames like my other 7 books. And lets just say writinig those reviews were hard because I can't lie and say they rocked. So as it was Flame had a tough job to pull me to the good side. DID IT? That's the question??Mother of all great books-HELL YES it did. It took me out of my book [...]

    4. I have to rate Flame 5 hot, sizzling, get your tissue ready stars. Out of all 3 books Flame will have you in tears by the time you finish. Happy tears and sad tears. There might even be a part where you want to scream at the top of your lungs "What the hell is she thinking?" I know I sure did. I wanted to get on Facebook and email Brooke asking her why? why? did you do that? But I didn't. I kept reading. You need to keep reading.That being said, as much as I wanted to know Carissa's story. I was [...]

    5. This is a must read! We met Carissa in the Spark and Burn books she was Laney's spunky no attachment to men other than sex kinda gal. Flame is all about Carissa (with a small taste of Laney). Flame was a great follow up to the other two books, I loved Carissa in those books, but was able to really understand and fall in love with her as a whole character in Flame. I don't want to give away any spoilers. Carissa meets Drew at the bar she works at, he was supposed to be a one and done kinda thing, [...]

    6. Flame is the third book in the Spark series and is now my favorite!!!Carissa had to deal with a troubled childhood growing up, Parents who could careless about her and a boyfriend who broke her heart! After graduation her and her best friend Velaney moved away and said they would never return. She built walls so no one could ever hurt her again! Her motto"Get in. Get off. Get out."Then Drew came into her life doing everything he could to break down the walls she built. Drew is a sexy British man [...]

    7. DNF @ 35%Why DNF?.Carissa is the equivalent of the standard NA book cliche character that is the 'male-whore'. Even going as far to recite the lines; 'I don't do relationships.' & 'They know what they're signing up for.'The first 23% involved: Carissa shagging lots of different men as soon as they laid eyes on each other. Messing around with her prude bestie. Explaining (a lot!) to the reader how she's slutty and likes it. Memories of her drunk/drug taking parents who made her the way she is [...]

    8. Another great book by Brooke! I loved Carissa in the 1st two books of this series and I'm so glad she got her own story told. Carissa's personal battle with not feeling good enough to be loved was heartbreaking. I was in tears several times throughout the book. Drew came into Carissa's life & opened her eyes and heart to trust and love. I loved seeing their relationship grow & how Drew didn't give up on Carissa even when she pushed him away. So glad Velaney & Eric were in the book. L [...]

    9. I read the first two books in the series and I LOVED both of them so I was super excited to see that Carissa had a story. Carissa’s life was never great from her parents being well lets put it they were not great parents they were not parents at all. She pretty much used sex to hide behind all of her problems and insecurities in her life. Until Drew enters her life. He wants her from the beginning and will do anything for her. I can’t even explain how I felt after reading this book I was sup [...]

    10. Spicy, scorching hot and at the same time very emotionally charged story that will take your breath away and have you glued to it.Flame will leave you speechless because it is simply so addictive.Clarissa and Drew´s characters are amazingly developed. Especially Clarissa´s. It was amazing to watch her change since Drew came into her life and to see how his presence in her life influenced her growth as a person.Once again Brooke has proved that she is a talented storyteller. That she can work m [...]

    11. I was lucky enough to be a Beta reader for FlameG!!!! Can you say FREAKING AMAZING!!! Brooke Cumberland never fails to amaze me. She pulls you in and keeps you there until the very end. She has became one of my favorite authors ever. Flame is the story of Carissa and Drew. Holy smoking HELL this book is HOT!!! The sex and chemistry between Carissa and Drew off the freaking charts. Flame will tear you up. Oh my, my poor heart broke so bad at one point I had to tell Brooke "FIX IT"I don't want to [...]

    12. I thought Brooke Cumberland's first two books in this series were awesome but, Flame O.M.G. Words practically escape me Flame is positively sizzling. This book ties up the Spark Series perfectly. To see Carissa and Drew's relationship develop in this book was great. They conquered obstacle after obstacle and came out stronger. Brooke Cumberland captivated me from the very first page to the very last.

    13. I had the opportunity to read an ARC of Flame, and I have to admit, Brooke really did an amazing job with Carissa. She perfected one of the most broken characters I have ever read.And lets not forget Drew. HOLYHELL.DROOOOOL!

    14. I was sent an arc of this book for an honest review for my blog :) So here goesOkay so this is The 3rd Spark book from Brooke so I advise you read the first two first even if this book is about a different person. This is Carrisa's story. And boy do I love this girl.You meet Carrisa is the first books and Laney's best friend and room mate. You can see she's kinda wild just from the bits and pieces you see. BUT this book show's you just how bad. She was brought up with the worse parents you can i [...]

    15. The Spark series continues to be hot and Flame is much hotter!  I always liked Carissa in the Spark series and I am so glad that she got her own novel.  She always looked out for her friend Velaney and was like the voice of reason for Velaney.  However, when it comes to her own heart, she has all these walls guarding it.Carissa never has trouble finding a man.  She goes out somewhere, finds herself a man!  Or they find her!  Even at her workplace she finds them. She would be with these m [...]

    16. This book sucked me in and completely captivated me within the very first chapter! I honestly was a little worried as to where it was going to go at first, as the lead character Carissa was so all over the map with men. I honestly kept thinking every time she would find a new one "ok this must be the one that tames her", however Brooke has done an excellent job at keeping you guessing and never knowing when exactly Mr. Right is going to enter the scene.The book follows Carissa who is a young wom [...]

    17. First let me say I read / listened to this book in audio format via audible.I always go for the audio books first as the narrators tend to breath life into the stories, thus giving them a heart beat! Audio books also allow me to be hands free to do other things such as drive, chores, even work. I loved this story! It is a sexy, hot romance! I will warn you, bring tissues! It made me laugh and cry. Carissa had a bad life growing up. With her mom being a junkie and her dad a drunk, then her first [...]

    18. I was a Beta reader in exchange for an honest review.First of all let me say, WOW!! Epic twist, that will leave your heart broken and shattered on the floor like broken glass!! I absolutely loved Carissa and her smart mouth in Spark and Burn, but in Flame you get to see behind Carissa's walls and see why she is the way she is and what makes her tick. She is damaged, and afraid of getting hurt, so how do you avoid getting hurt? Don't open your heart up to anyone to make yourself vulnerable. Keep [...]

    19. **5 star review**I was lucky enough to read this story as it was written and I loved every single part of it!! After not actually getting around to reading the first two books I was worried that I wouldn't understand what was going on, or who everyone was, but I was wrong, it was written so perfectly that it can be read as a standalone with no confusion at all! It's hot, steamy, angsty, heart wrenching and all consuming. Carissa has an attitude that I love in a lead female character, her 'couldn [...]

    20. Flame is the third book in the Spark series. You do not have to have read those books to read this book. Carissa's story is one of pain, headache, hatred of family, and opening ones self up to the possibility of something more. The story of Carissa and Drew will take you on a hot, wild, passionate, exciting, steamy, heart rendering ride. You will laugh, cry, even sob while reading this book. Carissa has built up barriers around herself for protection. She lets no one in so that she cannot get hu [...]

    21. I read Spark and Burn a while ago and got hooked on these girls and their stories to get a more in-depth picture of the wild and naughty Carissa and find out why and how she came to be the sex addict with (seemingly) no conscienceI was happy to finally get Flame.It is filled with the usual sweet romance and crazy antics as the first twobut deals with the more serious topic of sexual addiction and the aftermath of living with abusive drug and alcohol dependent parents. Learning to find peace with [...]

    22. This story was awesome!!!!!! I love the odd story with a play girl lead. Carissa had horrible parents and a shit child hood. Typical drama, but oh so different because this girl has a lot of sex with random men. I was so shocked at how quickly and easily she picked people up. So many of the incidents were funny too, you gotta feel sorry for the poor guys that were left hanging. I enjoyed this type of story line from a female perspective. Once the British hottie Drew comes into the mix you can se [...]

    23. I wasn't even going to read this book because I really didn't like Carissa's character in Spark or Burn. But, I was curious about the little bits of Drew that were in the first two books, so, I decided to read it. I was not disappointed. It's very good and so much different than Spark and Burn. Carissa is a hot mess but in this book you find out more and why she is so messed up. And Drew is just a "doll"! LOL He gets her to open up even when she is fighting him all the way. Loved the ending but [...]

    24. When I started reading, I didn't know that it was the third book in a series, but I really enjoyed as a standalone novel.Although Carissa is really messed up and don't want to open herself to anyone, she does it for Drew, a gorgeous, intelligent, courageous man, who helps her heal all her regrets and anger. There were moments that I wanted to slap some sense out of her [mmmhhh I found this more often than I thought], but finally he allows herself to feel, to live. Plot: 4 stars. Characters: 3.5 [...]

    25. 5 Stars||Meg's Review: This book was great! It left me on an emotional high and I love it when a book can give you that after effect. Not the book hangover where you are dwelling, but the one where you are high from the events in the book. A definite 5 star read.This book had just enough passion to match its storyline. It wasn't a book where they were naked 90% of the time and you got SOME story. It was a perfect balance. I felt all the sciences in the book were necessary as well. There weren't [...]

    26. ***Please note: While this is a standalone, I highly recommend reading 'Spark' and 'Burn' prior to reading this novel. Carissa first makes an appearance in Spark as Velaney's best friend.***For as long as Carissa can remember it's been Velaney and Carissa against the world. Both from backgrounds that have left them broken and unable to love anyone other than one another, they do the only thing they can, they leave and vow never to return.Carissa's mother is a drug addict and her father is an alc [...]

    27. As I am often determined to finish a series as soon as I start it, it was not a stretch to determine my next read after Burn. I was curious about the character Carissa. She seemed like a great secondary character in Velaney's stories but I didn't get to know much about her or her past throughout the course of the first two books. I knew she had a troubled background much like Velaney's but I wasn't sure how deep that went.Carissa is a self described whore. She sleeps around whenever the mood str [...]

    28. ***Arc was provided by author in exchange for an honest review***I'm a big Brooke Cumberland fan. Her Riverside Trilogy is a fantastic series with the right amount of angst, steam, and suspense. When I saw that she had a new series out, I wanted to dive right in and read them all, but time got away from me, and with a never ending TBR pile, I didn't get to book one or two like I had wanted to. When I saw that book three was a companion novel to the Spark series and could be read alone, I jumped [...]

    29. 4.5 stars!I completely fell in love with the first two books in this series and I was really excited when I found out the author was giving a secondary character from the first two books her own book! I was really excited when I got my ARC of this book because I had been desperate to read it and I also beta read the first few chapters! I have too be honest though and say that it took me a few chapters to really get into this book! It just started quite slow and it took a while for the main chara [...]

    30. "This was never supposed to turn into something. He was just supposed to be a flame, a one-night stand, a drunken mistake. But he wasn't. And if I'm being honest with myself, he never was."Okay I am in LOVE with this book. Just want to state that now before I get more into this review!!Lets meet Carissa: She doesn't do relationships, she had a druggie mom and an alcoholic father. She left home after graduation high school and didn't look back. She used sex like it was her drug of choice. Until s [...]
