Chasing Fire, Book #2
By Ann Marie Walker and Amy Roger
The second in the “seriously sexy and sinfully steamy”* Chasing Fire series, about a pain too deep to forgive and a passion too hot to forget…
Alessandra Sinclair knows that Hudson Chase is the last man she should want. The boy from the wrong side of the tracks has grown into a man who would do anything to get ahead, even if it means breaking Allie’s heart. But whenever she’s near him, the attraction between them is undeniable. And now that they’re working together, keeping her distance from Hudson is almost as impossible as keeping her feelings in check…
Hudson already lost Allie once and he refuses to lose her again. He’s determined to use their new business partnership to rekindle the spark he knows is still there. Only the closer he gets to winning her over, the clearer it becomes there are still secrets that could tear them apart for good…
I enjoyed this story until the end. The end disappointed me in that when the reader is on a high and enjoying the flow of the story, it just ends with no closure for the reader. Up until the end the story was exciting and the suspense was building. I wanted more but instead went to the last page expecting an answer and all I was left with was a sense of letdown. I realize there will be another book to answer the questions but I can’t see how this one can stand alone with the reader frustrated by the ending.
Alessandra and Hudson find out they will be working together and the chemistry and attraction to each other makes it impossible to keep their feelings under control. Hudson wants Allie back but their secrets and mistrust always come back to foil their happiness. The sex is hot and steamy and the story is fast moving.
When Allie fails to trust Hudson enough with a secret that could entail real danger to her life; Hudson may lose her forever.
At this point the story ends. I do hope that the next story will have a better ending for the reader.
