Sometimes a single flame can ignite a love that lasts a lifetime.
Milo Phillips knows the meaning of pain. Suffering through the most intense physical agony of his life, he’s confined to a hospital bed to bear it alone. More than once, he wishes he’d died in the explosion that melted and mangled his skin. Darkness consumes him, snuffing all the joy in his life and leaving an empty hole in its place.
But one day, a flicker of light sneaks into his hospital room, driving away some of the hopelessness. For the first time in months, pain isn’t all he feels.
The flicker’s name is Sara Foster, his new nurse. Milo just hopes that Sara can see past his scars. Because underneath, his heart has begun beating again just for her.
I received an ARC of this book in exchange for an honest review
My Rating: 5 Stars
Devney Perry has the unique talent of writing books that I love more and more as her series continue. I’ll finish one of her books, rate it five stars, and call it my new favorite, only for her to top herself with the next book of hers that I read. I LOVED her last release, Letters to Molly, and somehow love her latest even more.
The majority of Sara and Milo’s story takes place in a hospital, something I absolutely loved. It was such a unique way to tell a love story and I fell right into it. The two of them together were full of chemistry and passion, and their tale was beyond cute.
The Candle Palace was a quick, light read for the most part, but it definitely still hit me in the feels Devney Perry style, and the major conflict of the book had my heart pounding. It was incredible to see my favorite characters from The Jamison Valley Series as they were some of the first of Perry’s characters that I fell in love with.
Overall, I can’t say enough great things about Devney Perry’s books. Every single one I read of hers is an emotional adventure that I somehow love more than her last release. I’m so excited to see how she toys with my emotions next!
