Audiobook Review: Fire (Underground Encounters, #2). ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

Fire by Lisa Carlisle

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Opposites attract in this fiery paranormal romance.

Maya Winters, a firefighter, heads out on Halloween to dance at her favorite club. A man with haunting eyes watches her from the back of the club. He’s just her type – dark and brooding. She feels their connection, but thinks it’s merely physical attraction.

Who was she? Why did she have that light?

Despite being the new owner, Tristan Stone avoids people in the underground goth club due to his curse. But when he spots a woman dancing alone surrounded by an unusual glow, he must discover who she is and what gives her the radiating power.

While they work together to understand their connection, passion ignites, leading to danger.

And the heat could send their world up in flames.

Fire is a stand-alone romance in the Underground Encounters series, set in a club that attracts supernatural creatures.

Step into Vamps, a thrilling new world of steamy paranormal romance featuring shifters, vampires, witches, and gargoyles.


Darkness and Light!

The Hero: Tristan – He is the new owner of Vamps nightclub. This book takes place a year after the previous book and the fire at Vamps. Tristan comes from Salem, Mass and his ancestors are witches and he believes he is cursed, so he stays away from humans despite the fact that he owns the club. He spends most of his time in his lab below the club.

The heroine: Maya – she is the best friend to Nike from Smolder and is also a firefighter who used to spend her free time at the underground nightclub, Vamps. She used to go there with Nike, but stopped when Nike left town and she decides to go back to the club at Halloween a year later.

The Story: Tristan decides to come up from his lab on Halloween to check out the club. He has trouble spending much time in the club because darkness surrounds most people and it drains him to no end. When suddenly he sees a beautiful woman who is surrounded by light. He sees pain in her, and where others’ pain usually drains him, he feels compassion for hers.

This book was told in dual points of view via dual narration, unlike the first two books. I like dual narration so much more than solo narration, so I was happy for the change. It was narrated by Amber Lee Connors and Kieran Flitton. Kieran has a soft but masculine voice which is very pleasant and Amber has a youthful feminine voice that is easy to listen to.

This book is more fleshed out than the previous two books, it didn’t seem to go by so fast and the story was original and interesting. The romance wasn’t as rushed as the last book, it was on a more normal pace with both characters holding things back at the beginning and not completely understanding their connection. The only thing I didn’t like about this one was the amount of time Tristan and Mia spent feeling sorry for themselves.
