They say there’s a fine line between love and hate.
Ours was a mile wide.
To put it bluntly, my life sucked.
When I finally got up the courage to divorce
my jerk of a husband, never in a million years did I imagine his prick of an
attorney would gain him full custody of my daughter.
My scant two weekend visits per month killed
And my ex made it as difficult as possible on
me every single time.
So imagine my shock when said attorney’s name
appeared at the top of the list at the in-patient substance abuse clinic where
I worked as a counselor.
My list.
The first thing that occurred was I completely
lost my Zen.
Then my blood boiled.
Then his chart flew across the room and
slammed into the wall.
How could this possibly be happening?
Karma couldn’t be this cruel.
How in the world could I be an empathetic
abuse counselor to the cocky Pearson West who destroyed my life?
I would rather become an addict myself, or
better yet, strangle him first.

From Smoke to Flames
A.M. Hargrove

A.M. HARGROVE is a phenomenal author. The way she writes a story, is absolutely mind boggling. The way she weaves certain aspects into a story, will throw you for a loop. The way the she let's her characters tell their own stories , in their own words, makes it that much more relateable and understanding. This Dual POV had my heart laid wide open, wanting and needing more. She choose words that had me grappling for more, more words, more emotions, more understanding, just more of everything. She hit every emotion in my body with ; From Smoke To Flames. She choose topics, that are real life issues most families see day to day. Topics that will drag you to the bottom of a bottle, just so you can drown. I applaud you A.M.Hargrove, for facing the reality of what most of us deal with. I know it most definitely was not an easy road to go down, fiction or nonfiction.
*Before I continue with my review, I just want to let you know I don't intend to spoil this book and give many details, because as a human being and someone that has dealt with the same issues, I feel that it is in the best interest to see for yourself what this plot is all about, without me spoiling it.

Both of these characters deal with issues that are unthinkable, but are brought together for a reason. While one fights demons of their actions, the other is trying to keep their head above water while dealing with life, after divorce Both try to find grounding in this thing called life with courage, strength, and understanding. From Smoke To Flames is a heavy book, with heavy issues. This is one book that will not be leaving my mind for a while.

As I previously mentioned, From Smoke To Flames is a book with that deals with heavy issues. With that being said, can both Rose and Pearson beat the odds and battle their own demons, or will they go up in smoke?

* I 100% recommend this book.

*Reviewed for Reviews From the Heart
