Fire in You (Wait for You #6) by J. Lynn

From the # 1 New York Times and International bestselling author, Jennifer L. Armentrout writing as J.Lynn, comes a richly moving story about heartbreak and guilt, second chances and hope. Full of familiar, fan-favorite characters and no two people more deserving of a happy ending, Fire In You will burn bright beyond the last page…

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.

The Wait for You series has been near and dear to my heart since book 1 released in 2013. I've been both anticipating and dreading this final installment--excited for Brock and Jillian's story, but also not wanting this series to come to a close. That said, Jennifer L. Armentrout did this series justice with a beautiful finale.

Brock and Jillian were intriguing to me. They've known each other for a good long while. She's loved him while he's treated her like a little sister. I was looking forward to seeing how their dynamic flipped from THAT to something romantic, and I was very much pleased with the reality within Fire in You. We got to see exactly that--Brock's interest turned toward winning Jillian over for himself--but we also got so much more. Their story is so deep and intricate, and I LOVED that about this story.

And on that note, Fire in You was so well written. It was emotional and intense and I literally could not put this book down. I kid you not, I read the whole thing in one sitting. My need to know both the details of what had happened between Brock and Jillian in the past and how things would work out for them for the future was too strong for me to doing anything BUT read straight through.

The romance was the perfect mixture of sweetness and deliciously sexy moments. Brock and Jillian are one of those couples that clicks so well, and reading them together was lovely. And I really enjoyed seeing them work through their issues. They had a lot of baggage to deal with, both individually and together, but they talked it through, which I liked.

My only minor gripe is that I felt like sometimes there was so much focus on Brock and Jillian's past that their present kind of got glossed over. This wasn't for the entire book, it was only for part of it, but it was still a small something I noticed. That said, as a whole, I loved this book.

Overall, Fire in You is an emotional, intense, and romantic finale to the Wait for You series. It can definitely hold up well as a standalone, but we also got happy glimpses of the characters from the past books and it was terrific. But most importantly, Brock and Jillian's story was beautiful and I loved it. I definitely recommend picking this one up if you're a fan of contemporary romance--whether you've read the previous books or not (though those books are FANTASTIC, so you should really read them all if you haven't already)!

4 stars - Emotional, intense, and romantic--a contemporary romance I definitely recommend!

Once again Jennifer L Armentrout has me staying up late to read. It’s a common occurrence when I read her books. Start and finish. Why? It’s the experience of reading one of her books.

Her books always include incredible characters, real stories, great writing and that something more. Always that something more. And I walk away trying to decide what's this magic that only Jen seems to be able to use to craft a story of complete perfection.

Characters. I love this series and all the varied characters that feel so real that I expect to find them at the local IHOP eating pancakes on Sunday mornings. The whole cast is around in this one and I loved getting all the updates on them after a long period of time has passed. But the characters that held my heart in this one were Brock and Jillian.

Jillian is quirky and a book lover. She’s been through a life changing trauma and it’s time to get her life back. Clearly she hasn’t been herself since most of her books are living at her parents house! Say what? She brings them home. It’s okay, no worries. But I love her insecurities and her self talk. It’s real and I loved it. I was so happy for her as she started making choices to get back to her life. It made me happy. Except for Grady. That didn’t make me happy. At one point, I yelled at her and texted Jess. WTH are you thinking, women!? But, alas, I shouldn’t have worried because Brock was BRILLIANT. Brilliant I say!

Brock is a gem. He did something that he just can’t take back. He truly wishes he could. But he will have his friendship back with Jillian. I adored all the little things we discovered about him. What he’s been doing. What’s been important to him. I loved him. Yes, I was not happy about a fiancee. What is that?? But that too is okay. And actually, I was so happy about how everything worked out. Brock brings her pumpkin lattes and other treats. He doesn’t give up on her. And at one point, he wouldn’t leave. I wanted to hug him! Well played Brock. Well played.

As you can tell, I loved their story. These two have been friends ever since they met when she was 8 and he was fourteen. No one knew the other better but then that changed in a horrible fashion. And Brock wants it back. Jillian doesn’t. It’s real. None of the circumstances that make their story are contrived. I could see it. I did see it as it unfolded on the pages of this book. And that’s the art of this author. Her stories live on the pages and hold me captive until the very last word.

I love the characters. I love the story. I love the writing. And I really love that something more, the JLA magic. I try to define it but it seems impossible to put into words. All I know is that her books don’t feel forced. They feel real. The story develops genuinely. The couple gets time to be a couple. The details are resolved, it’s complete. And I always know these characters are real. They’re my friends because I’ve gotten to know them. It’s a perfect pattern that works so well to create a sleepless night.

You’ll want this one. You’ll be happy in the pages of this book. You’ll love these characters. You’ll cheer for them. You’ll sigh when the last page is done. And you’ll be sad that this book is the last in this series. But the good news is that it’s not the last JLA book. Many more of those to come, thank goodness.
