When sweet revenge turns sour… Book two of a trilogy from New York Times bestselling author Jenny Han and Siobhan Vivian.

Lillia, Kat, and Mary had the perfect plan. Work together in secret to take down the people who wronged them. But things didn’t exactly go the way they’d hoped at the Homecoming Dance.

Not even close.

For now, it looks like they got away with it. All they...more

Updates below!

After reading the last page of Burn for Burn, I thought. Wait. That's it?! and frantically flipped the pages to make sure I hadn't missed anything:

Needless to say, thankfully, there's a sequel. Looking forward to it!

Update 3/21/2014
WOW. So, Fire with Fire finally came out and provided some closure...until it didn't. The plot twist about Mary was mind-blowing, and the end left me terrified to see what Jenny and Siobhan have planned for these infuriatingly rash characters in the next...more

Wow, I'm still panting a little bit after that ending. But I'll get to that later.

So Fire with Fire picks up not long after the big Homecoming Dance disaster. The girls got away with what they did but their plan went wrong because Reeve is now injured. And then of course, there's Mary, who knows that there's something wrong with her and that she had something to do with what happened at the dance, but is trying her best to deny it and hides it from the other girls. But Mary is also still hopele...more

Thank you Simon and Schuster Australia for sending me this copy. No compensation was given or taken to alter this review.

Burn For Burn was fun. Fire With Fire was another story. Much more complex with depth and more of a realistic backbone, the sequel to Burn For Burn surprised me entirely. If you were not the greatest fan of Burn For Burn, I believe that this one is still worth trying because it was a huge improvement. Sweet revenge turns sour...

Burn for Burn was a book which I really adored last year; it was a fun contemporary with a different twist. I don’t know what I was expecting going into Fire with Fire, but it wasn’t this. Jenny Han and Siobhan Vivian literally came out all guns blazing with this book. It was a story of three different girls coming together, but in particular the stories of Lillia and Kat really struck a chord with me.

I instantly connected with Kat and Lillia’s character in Burn for Burn, so I couldn’t wait to s...more

Why is it the books you always want now are so far away?

Oh. My. God.

What on earth did I just read?

First of all, I'd have to say that I'm not a fan of contemporary books and don't read much of that genre. But this book right here just swept me off my feet! Yes, it's just that good.

Spoilers Ahead

I'm sure we all want a taste of revenge, especially to those who once hurt us the most. And that's exactly what Lilia, Kat and Mary are after, sweet revenge. After their little avenge-gone-wrong at homecoming, the girls decided to rest the matter. But what of R...more

God, that cliffhanger.

I went into this remembering close to nothing of Burn for Burn. But that's not a problem, because this book does a great job of reminding you of what happened previously.

I really liked the characters because none of them are really similar; they're each their own person. So even though it's narrated from three people, you never do get confused. The side characters are great too, especially Alex.

The ending leaves you with a ton of questions. Like, what whaaaat? Things add up...more

Burn for Burn was a book i always use to overlook in the bookstore but i finally got a copy. I read it in two days and was in love with this book. Now book 2 is coming out i am so happy. This may seem crazy if you read the first book but i want Mary with Reeve i just can tell he has a sweet spot even if he is a big jerk.

I dove into Fire with Fire the very day I got it. I loved Burn for Burn and I was anxious to see what would happen next, although I wasn’t sure exactly what direction the series was heading. Fire with Fire far exceed my expectations. It was impossible to put down, full of twists and turns, and even better than Burn for Burn!

By the end of Burn for Burn, I pretty much hated every character except for Lindy. I was certainly sympathetic to them all in one way for another, but it didn’t stop me from...more

When I first picked up the first book in this series, I thought it would be a fun contemporary trilogy. Well, I was so very wrong. This book was fast paced and super intense. The stuff that happened was really high stakes and just wow... I spent like 3 hours reading last night and ended up staying awake til 3am...

I think a lot of the intensity came from Mary and all that supernatural stuff related to her. In the first book I didn't really get it but now I think I'm beginning to, sorta. I'm reall...more

May contain spoilers if you have not read Burn for Burn

If you've been following our blog for a while, then you should already know how OBSESSED I was with Burn for Burn last year. I literally devoured it in ONE day. Anyways, I squealed when I got this book for review, because Burn for Burn ended in such a major cliffhanger! Fire with Fire starts off exactly where Burn for Burn left off. I kind of had to skim through my copy of Burn for Burn to refresh my memory because I kind of forgot a lot of...more

Holy crap! 4.5 stars, Worthy successor to the first book... when I saw the thickness and read the premise I was a bit dubious... I loved 'Burn for Burn" and was hoping this would captivate me as much. 'Fire with Fire' certainly delivered :) It picks up almost right from when the first book left off and we see the aftermath of what the girls did. Rennie's Mean Girl attitude gets kicked up a few notches but in a way I felt sorry for her in t...more

Second in the Burn for Burn trilogy

Fire with Fire picks up exactly where Burn for Burn left off. Lillia, Kat, and Mary are back. They have a new plan. This time Lillia will have Reeve fall in love with her. He’s been chasing her for years so what better way to finally screw him and Reenie up. Reenie is worse than before and she’s ready to rule to the school and take Lillia down. Mary has it worse than everyone because something just isn’t qu

My Twitter followers are aware that this book gave me many feels, but in the interest of preserving what little dignity I have left, I shall try to make this review as serious and professional as possible... Okay, that was an outright lie. Who did you think you were talking to?

My feelings for Burn for Burn were nowhere near as intense as the emotional breakdown that Fire with Fire caused. The last time I liveblogged like that, I believe, was when I was reading Unbreakable by Elizabeth Norris, a...more

Fire with Fire picks up where Burn for Burn left off. Immediately Kat, Mary and Lillia have to deal with the consequences of revenge plot they put together to ruin Reeve at the Homecoming Dance.

But, they're not finished just yet.

After Mary confronts Reeve on Halloween night the girls finally realise he definitely needs to get what's coming to him. After realising his true weakness the girls have it all planned out, they needs to crush Reeve.

Holy shit. This. Book. Was. A. Mind. F*ck. And the third book needs to come out. Like yesterday.

So many things make sense now. I won't spoil anything, but the ending clarified something that really bugged me which was how the entire book I was trying to rationalize how I could love a character like Reeve after what he did to Mary. That scene in the maze, when it happened, I wanted to kick him in his manly parts in a way that was conducive to him not being able to procreate. Ever. But if the wic...more

Can I just say that Jenny Han and Siobhan Vivian are an incredible dual who have written this kick a$$ series that makes me wish the year away so I can get the next book. This series first started out with Burn for Burn and what a book that is. I mean it took me two days to read it because it is a big book and I was reading so slowly because I did not want to miss anything. So when I found Fire with Fire was coming out soon I went on a book stalking frenzy until I found Around The World ARC Tour...more
Jessica (Jess Hearts Books)
Fire with Fire felt like quite a different read compared to Burn for Burn. It was less focused on revenge and instead focuses more on the aftermath of Burn for Burns ending and the relationship between Lillia, Kat, and Mary as they go from being accomplices to true friends who care about each other. There’s also the introduction of a romance which I really enjoyed. Although I loved both Burn for Burn and Fire with Fire equally they felt like very different books to me and I loved them for entire...more

You've been warned.

Holy crap. If I thought I was dying to get my hands on this book after reading the first one it is nothing compared to how I feel about the need to get my hands on the last book. I really enjoyed last year's Burn for Burn and squeed when I saw the sequel, Fire With Fire pop up on Edelweiss. Like the first book in the series, F...more

This had a quick, easy to gobble-up plot that burned away fast like the fire that Mary's uncontrollable telekinesis conjures up when she gets angry.

It is NOT the kind of book I would have read by my own volition. Three high-school girls from different social groups and economic classes come together to secretly take revenge on other mean kids.

At first I was turned away by how awful one of the revenge acts had been, but i was drawn further in by the easy reading, the strength of voice for the thr...more

This was even better than the first book. Totally.

Well, maybe because of the cliffhanger it ended at book one, but it had me hooked from the start to finish.

In this book, as Reeve tries to recuperate from his injuries and Lillia tries to handle how Rennie has been acting towards her. Mary found out that she isn't normal, and it sparks tension as the secret is being thrown into the mix.

Reeve has lost his soccer scholarship, and they're responsible. But Mary isn't satisfied. Not fully yet.
