Among Ash & Ember by Dani René is an intense, emotional, heartbreaking love story about two brothers and the girl that they BOTH love. Told in multiple POV’s, contrary to what it sounds like this story is NOT a love triangle. I went in thinking that it was going to be something along those lines, let me be the first to admit I have never been gladder to be wrong. Among Ashes and Embers was so much MORE than I ever could have expected.
“Pain will fray you. It will rip you to shreds. And love is the only thing that can put you back together.”
At 16 years old, in the blink of an eye, a fire took everything from Katerina Nielsen. After her parent’s death, Kat is placed in the system until she ages out, two years later.
Now, lost, alone, and drowning in debt left to her by her parents, Kat knows she has to do what she has to do to keep a roof over her head and make ends meet. Kat has become a “companion” for wealthy men. Not quite going as far as some of the other girls she bunks with, she is more of arm candy for her clients. Kat is determined to only participate in this lifestyle for 12 months, long enough to save enough money so that she can pursue her dream to go to college.
Ashton Addington notices Kat from across the room of the hotel bar. He knows exactly what a girl like her is doing there so he approaches her and makes an offer that he knows she won’t be able to refuse. Sure enough, Kat follows him back to his hotel room.
But something is different. For Ash, it’s usually one night of bliss and then it’s over. So why is it that every time he thinks of never seeing this girl again he can barely rein in his anger? There is just something about Kat. Ash is determined to find a way to keep her in his life. But now he just has to convince his brother to go along with his plan.
Ember Addington knows his brother is taken with this girl. Ash went against Ember’s wish just to be with her… But once Ember meets Kat for himself, he can understand EXACTLY why this beautiful intriguing girl has such hold on his brother.
So the brothers make her an offer. An offer that could change her entire life for the BETTER if she agrees. But Kat is so scarred from the life she’s been forced to lead that she’s hesitant to blindly trust these mysterious brothers… and she has every right to be.
Ash and Ember are keeping a secret from Kat, a secret that could wreck everything. But what’s worse… Ember is concealing something from his brother as well.
“Sometimes secrets are the only thing holding us together and keeping us from falling apart.”
What happens when those secrets are revealed?
Will Kat be able to forgive Ash and Ember?
What is Ember hiding from Ash?
What happens when the past collides with the present?
“But it can also be those secrets that tear your life apart. They could so easily be the same lies you think will keep you safe. But in the end, they’re the ones that will destroy you.”
You’ll have to read Among Ash & Ember to find out!
“How can two broken souls go through so much, yet find themselves again?”
Gahhh what a beautiful story! The writing was flawless and poetic, the characters were amazing, and the secrets kept you right on the edge of your seat trying to figure out exactly WHAT they were all hiding. I laughed, I smiled, I swooned, I yelled, I cried, seriously I literally messaged Dani as soon as I finished just to yell at her for making me cry! But I would do it all over again. This is one of those stories that stays with you, and I know that it will stay with me for a while. Truly a BEAUTIFUL story.
Katerina, gahhh I LOVE Kat. She’s feisty, sassy, and even after the horrible hand of life she’s been dealt she still holds an air of innocence. She’s been through more than anyone her age should but yet still holds on to the hope of accomplishing her dreams, and is willing to do whatever it takes to make them realities.
“I’ve fallen. I’ve walked right into the inferno. And there’s no escape for me now.”
Ash, is like a whirlwind. Because of all the secret burdens that were left to him he appears to be such an angry person but being around Kat gives him a sense of contentment that his life has been lacking and he’d go through hell and back for this brother.
“He’s bad and good all wrapped up in a perfect package, and I wonder if it unravels, what I’ll find inside.”
Ember, ahh Ember, my love. The peacemaker, the matchmaker. Being an Empath Ember feels everything so much more then anyone else does. Ember is the soft to his brothers hard. I have the biggest crush on Ember and my heart is literally BREAKING, Dani René!
I loved watching the bond between the three of them as well as the bond between Kat and each brother. The love between each was SO different but still SO strong.
That ending… even though I just KNEW that there was something more going on… I just still wasn’t ready for THAT. Gahhh I’m not going to post spoilers but just be prepared!
Another thing, if you guys follow me you know I’m all about the sexy times lol, so I just wanted to mention, the first sex scene happens at about 84% in… BUT there IS a whole lot of heat and some steamy scenes early on but they just don’t go for the whole enchilada.
I’ve read ALMOST everything Dani René has released and this one, this one was a lot different than what she normally writes. The emotion, and the turmoil… I just can’t even explain it but trust me when I tell you, she pulled it off! Dani, she is such a brilliant and talented writer. She’s also one of the nicest authors I have ever met, well met as in stalked online lol, but still, you get the point! I absolutely devoured Among Ash & Ember and I can not wait to see what she comes up with next!
I HIGHLY recommend Among Ash & Ember
