Overall Rating:   4.25 Rockin’ ★★★★☆

Flame is the second novel in the Fierce series by Clarissa Wild. This book is an intense story of two souls finding love amongst some of the worst living conditions.  Their love carries them through the trials and tribulations of young adults emerging in a poverty stricken environment.  Even though sometimes their love is put to the test by family and friends; they stand strong together because their love is burning as an eternal flame.

“He’s like a conductor, delicately orchestrating his moves, creating a symphony of pleasure and bliss.  He knows exactly what to do to make me delirious.  I am really his.  Completely, utterly his.

Autumn aka "Leafy" is skittish, insecure, and sassy when riled. Leafy is smart and determined to succeed at the university.  She has promised to never leave Hunter; never to run away. She knows he is keeping a secret from her; once she finds out, will she change her feelings for him? Her dad didn't want them together. He wanted her to have a better future. Would she leave Hunter because of his secrets?

“She’s my little lamb and I’m the wolf, and I like knowing that she’s still a little hesitant.  Unsure.  Afraid.  Its empowering to know that even if she is, she still trusts me enough to let me in and love me for it.

Hunter is a dominating alpha that is searching for his spot in the world.  Even with his learning deficiency, he is determined to protect and provide for Leafy.  His secret could rip them apart.  The only thing that matters to him is Leafy.  He needs her to breathe. 

The look in his eyes is greedy, thirsty, animalistic, and I can’t help but fall totally in love with this man I call mine. 

They are polar opposites that have fallen hard in love for each other.  Can they overcome their differences?  Are they truly right for each other?  Read the book and find out for yourself. You won't be disappointed. ~flo
