Burn For Burn
After the catastrophic events at the Homecoming Dance at the end of Burn for Burn, Lillia, Kat and Mary come face to face with the consequences of their actions – Reeve in the hospital. While Lillia and Kat begin to have reservations about moving forward with their revenge, Mary becomes convinced Reeve needs to get what is coming to him, no matter what. And as they agreed, each revenge plot needs to be completed. Lillia will make Reeve fall in love with her and then break his heart, just like he broke Mary’s. But spending so much time with Reeve, pretending to fall for him, Lillia finds she her fake feelings start feeling very real. And as devoted as the girls are to seeing this through, their friendship starts to sag under the weight of their secrets. Is revenge really worth all of this?
I was a bit apprehensive to start this book. Not that I didn’t enjoy Burn For Burn, I certainly did. However, I wasn’t blown away by it. Yet, something still made me want to read Fire With Fire. The same has happened once more. Not blown away by this book, but intrigued enough to continue with the series. The twist in this book, didn’t come until the very end. I have to admit, it pulled me in and shocked me at the same time. I didn’t see it coming.
Fire With Fire follows the events after Burn For Burn ended. Reeve is in hospital, with a broken leg, following the dance. Lilia, Kat and Mary are feeling slightly guilty over what happened. However, Mary in particularly really doesn’t want their feelings to get in the way of their plan for revenge. Reeve is still the intended victim, but they need to find a new way to mess with him. Mary decides to use Reeve’s feelings for Lilia against him. She wants to break his heart like he broke hers.
I thought Fire With Fire was interesting enough, but it felt way too long. It’s over 500 pages, and it doesn’t have a massive amount of content to justify its length. Halfway through the book, I was beginning to lose interest in it. Luckily I kept reading, because it did eventually reel me back in.
The paranormal edge in this series is slightly confusing me. I just have to read the next book in the series, to see what on earth is going on. Fire With Fire ends with a massive cliff-hanger, which definitely makes me want to read the next instalment. I just hope the next book isn’t as long as this one. If condensed down, I think it would be an incredibly engaging read.
