Flame was a very hot and sexy sequel in the Fierce series as Autumn and Hunter continue exploring their relationship.  It had a slight yo-yo effect as Autumn and Hunter struggled with their desires, but they manage to work through it together. Things aren't always smooth, but each time they make up, it is scorching hot!

Autumn is still naive, and finds it difficult to fully trust Hunter at first, especially when it comes to sex. Hunter holds back too, as he deals with his emotions and his past. But they both have secrets and when they both share them, it definitely makes them stronger.

I liked how there were still some fight scenes in this book too. I know Autumn is not a fan of it, but i could see that it was part of Hunter's life and what he liked to do. Having his brother around for support was great too and they find something that they are both happy to do. 

This was a fitting end to Autumn and Hunter's story. There are new challenges at every turn, but they are able to find support from some of the family and friends that they have. They both grow as adults and learn to lay everything on the table. I liked the new direction that their lives are heading in and it will inevitably make them a stronger couple. Bravo Miss Wild for weaving such an incredible series!

  1. I'm happy that the characters' somewhat rocky relationship didn't diminish this book's steam factor. If anything, from the tone of your review, I gather that their yo-yo chemistry actually made this book even hotter. And, their HEA sounds like it was perfect for them. Wonderful review!

  2. Yay! I'm glad this ending made you happy, Naomi. And that the characters grew so much. You know I'm a fan of great character growth. :) Yep, gonna have to pick up this series, girl. *sigh* You're always adding to my TBR!! ;)

    This sounds like a steamy, sexy read but the yo-yo affect has me doubting. Idk if I can handle that. As of lately a book has to keep me enthralled the entire time and I feel that this might not. It's just me, I'm having issues lol. If I weren't going through a funk I'd totally enjoy this book. Great review hun :)
