About FIRE IN YOU (Standalone Contemporary Romance Releasing November 28, 2016):
From the # 1 New York Times and International bestselling author 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 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.

As a longtime fan of Jennifer Armentrout, of both her pen names, I am always the first to jump on a new release. Fire in You was no different, it was a compelling romantic tale that had amazing characters, beautiful writing, and a story full of emotions.
Jillian's life changed in one night, not only did she get her heart broken, but an even larger physical trauma occurred, one that pulled her away from her family and her life. She's taken years to get back into some sort of groove, and is looking to start fresh by taking a job at the family business, but Jillian doesn't expect her ex friend, the man who broke her heart to be waiting at the office for her; and she doesn't know what to do about it.
Brock realizes the mistakes of the past, he knows the damage he's wrought between himself and Jillian, and he knows that it haunts him. He also feels guilt for being part of the reason that Jillian backed off from her family, and in an effort to undo that damage, he wants to fix things, he wants to be friends again. I really liked Brock, you could feel his guilt, his pain at what he did, and you can tell he truly wants this second chance, but that he also believes he doesn't deserve it.
The passion between Jillian and Brock has survived all this time and whether they want to admit it or not, their chemistry sizzles. They've got a lot of history, a lot to work through, and secrets they've hidden, there's a web of deceit that could mean more than the end to their second chance at love.
What I love about the books in this series are the flawed characters, there is always some thing to work through, some hidden pain, some trauma, some dragon that needs to be slayed, but the characters aren't sitting back and doing nothing, they don't dwell and they don't whine; though its obvious that they also haven't forgotten what happened. Armentrout has a way of pulling me into the story, a way of making me see both sides with clarity the characters themselves can't see when they are deep in it. Jillian and Brock are no different, in that I was compelled to know more, to know all of the details, to analyze it all and pray for the best because the remaining feelings between these two, their friendship turned love, their explosive chemistry couldn't be denied.
