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.

I've been a Jennifer L. Armentrout (J. Lynn) fan since the moment I popped open an ARC of her first ever title, Half Blood. I fell head over heels for her style of writing, her imaginative characters, and the immense drama she brought to life in each and every unique world she created. When the first in her Wait for You series arrived, I was instantly sold! I immediately fell for Cam and Avery and adored their story to pieces. Now in book 6 of the series, Fire in You finally gives readers the tale of Brock and Jillian, two characters we've been lucky to meet in previous titles, but have always wondered about.

"I loved you when I was eight. I loved you when I was twelve. I loved you when I was twenty, and I... I love you now."

What can I say about Brock and Jillian? Hmmm....Well I loved them! I'd have to be crazy not to fall for the duo. Jillian, almost immediately, resonated with me. I could identify with her insecurities in addition to her strong will power. She had a powerful and traumatic past, but I absolutely adored her independence, reliability, and overall willingness to also be on board to help her family and others. Brock, in addition, wasn't the kind of character I had initially assumed he'd be. He was hard to like at first, but as Fire in You progressed, I started to see him as one of the best male leads in the Wait for You series.

Overall, Fire in You was an excellent addition to Jennifer's Wait for You series. Highly recommended for contemporary, romance, and new adult readers, you'll certainly fall just as hard for this likable duo.
