Where there’s smoke, there’s Fyre!

World building: 🌎🌏🌍🌎🌏
Character development: 👨🏻👱🏻♀🧔🏻👩🏻👱🏼♂
The heroine: Charlotte Ash – she has severe PTSD after being held in a toy box for 7 days by a serial rapist and killer. She has been doing art therapy at a local college and is infatuated with her professor.
The Hero(es): Gideon Fyre – he is a psychopath and knows it but also considers himself a healer. He has advanced degrees in both psychology and art. He has been obsessed with Charlotte since first seeing her file.
The Story: In the last book, we saw Fyre’s obsession with Charlotte grow to the point where he can’t control himself anymore. He has done some crazy things including kidnapping. He also may be working with the FBI in some strange way, though that wasn’t fully explained in Playing With Fyre.
This book is every bit as taboo and steamy as the first one and Frye is quite the dark horse. He keeps referring to something that happened in the past which he calls “Red Friday”. The term gives me images of the GOT red wedding, which was pretty horrific.
Frye is hard to pin down, he is every bit an anti-hero in this one. At some points he is so bad that he seems irredeemable but at other times his motivations seem almost altruistic. So this is definitely a crazy love story, and I do mean crazy! It also has a heck of a Cliffhanger!
I voluntarily read & reviewed an advanced copy of this book. All thoughts & opinions are my own.
