Title: Fire in You (Wait for You #6)
Author: Jennifer L. Armentrout
Pub. Date: November, 28, 2016
Jillian Lima’s whole world was destroyed in a span of a few hours. The same night her childhood love, Brock ‘the Beast’ Mitchell, broke her heart, her life was irrevocably altered by the hand of a stranger with a gun. It takes six years to slowly glue together the shattered pieces of her life, but Jillian is finally ready to stop existing in a past full of pain and regret. She takes a job at her father’s martial arts Academy and she’s going out on her first date since a failed relationship that was more yuck than yum. Jillian is determined to start living.
She just never expected Brock to be a part of her life again. But he’s firmly back in her life before she knows it, and not only is he older, he’s impossibly more handsome, more teasing and more everything. And when he sees Jillian, he’s no longer capable of thinking of her as the little girl who was his shadow growing up or the daughter of the man who gave him a second chance at life. He sees the woman who’d always been there for him, the one person who believed in him no matter what.
Brock knows she’s the one he should’ve made his, and what begins as a tentative friendship quickly turns to red-hot chemistry that sparks a flame that burns brighter than lust. Falling for Brock again risks more than her heart, because when the past sorrow-filled and guilt-ridden past resurfaces, and a web of lies threatens to rip them apart, the fallout could lay waste to everything they’ve fought to build together, and destroy the dreams of those they care most about.
This will be a spoiler free review.
It’s a little bittersweet that this is the last book in the Wait for You Series, and Jen didn’t disappoint. While it wasn’t my favorite book out of the series, that title belongs to Stay with Me, I did enjoy it.
I bought this book within days of it being released and I’m not really sure why it took me so long to pick it up. I do remember picking it up a few times, but I have to be in a mood for Contemporary and/or New Adult Romances. Though, oddly enough, I didn’t pick this book up because I was in either of those moods. I was on a Jennifer Armentrout binge, so I pretty much read everything on my shelf of hers that I hadn’t read yet. I have one left.
This book was pretty much exactly what you expect from a Jennifer L. Armentrout New Adult – especially in this series. Once you pick it up, you suddenly find yourself at the end of the book, having inhaled it in one sitting. I love that her books are like comfort foods to me. I pick it up knowing that I’m going to enjoy it.
Jillian and Brock are sweet together and neither of them are perfect. They have to learn how to be around each other again. Reforming their connection takes a little time and it’s got some ups and downs, but you know it’s going to work out in the end. (If you’ve read any of the other books in this series, that’s not a spoiler.
If you’re looking for a contemporary New Adult Romance, then you definitely want to check this series out. You can read them in order, but they are all stand-alone novels, but past characters show up – the books are all set in the same universe. So, read them in order, or out of order – hell, start with my favorite Stay with Me – you do you!
Which of these books is your favorite? Least favorite? Let me know!
