Slowly, like a whisper almost blown away in the wind, two words streaked across her mind: 'Kiss me.'

Kira may have survived the eclipse, but her troubles are far from over. She's headed to Sonnyville with one goal in mind: to learn more about her parents. But with Luke and Tristan competing for her heart and Diana gunning for her head, time is running out on the search for

I bought this book last night before going to bed. I woke up this morning and started reading, and could not stop! So, my husband is coming home to a messy house and no clean laundry today... Ms. Davis' books should come with a maid service.
Anyhoo, this story gets better and better. If you are looking for an engrossing series with a strong heroine and a couple of hot gentlemen vying for her attention, do yourself a big favor and pick up Ignite and Simmer.

This is book two in the ‘midnight fire’ series, and kicks off a few months after the end of book one – Ignite. **Warning: unavoidable spoilers for book 1 – Ignite**
Kira has recovered from her coma, and has had time to graduate from school. Now she’s going off to a conduit town to get in some training over the summer, to learn how to control her power, and to learn how best to use it when fighting vampires. Her best friend Luke who is als

I recently read the first book in this series, Ignite, and while I had been disappointed with the unedited quality of it, I was interested in following the story through with Simmer.

I was pleasantly surprised by the change in quality between the two books. While the grammar and spelling weren't flawless in Simmer, the mistakes didn't distract me from the story.

I like the direction this series is going. While some parts were predictable and very typical of the genre, (view spoiler)

Once again Kaitlyn Davis gives us a top notch story, SIMMER is book two in the Midnight Fire series. The story takes Kira to Sonnyville where she goes to look for answers to what happened to her mother. While she is looking for answers and has her sights on destroying Diana, Luke and Tristan are there to help her. And of course, the love triangle continues.
I really like were this series is going. I like how the characters are growing and the storyline continues with easy flow and fast-pace acti

Simmer is the second book in the thrilling Midnight Fire Series.

I'm so excited that Kaitlyn asked me to do follow up review with Simmer. I really enjoyed reading Ignite and was really looking forward to following Kira into the next part of her story.

You want action? Check.
You want a steamy kiss or two? Check.
You want vampires? Check.
You want some hot guy competition? Check.

In the second installment of the Midnight Fire series Kira is off to Sonnyville, the Protector colony in Florida. The council wants to see what she is made of and if, like the history books say, they have anything to fear from her existence.

Simmer is definitely a step up from Ignite in which the editing errors were numerous and they actually detracte

I enjoyed this spin on the teenage vampire story. There were times when I had to remind myself not to compare it to other vampire stories, but it had enough of a unique twist that I could.

SIMMER, by Kaitlyn Davis is the second installment of the Midnight Fire series that follows Kira on her journey to learn more about herself, her family and the things that go bump in the night. This installment is even more action packed and amps up the romance/steaminess as well!

First off, I would like to start by saying that from first novel to second novel was a huge difference. The quality and the writing improved greatly, so I must say I was impressed with Davis.

Simmer starts with Kira packing for “conduit boot camp” as she calls it, a few months after Ignite ends. Luke and Kira are going to Sonnyville for a couple months. Of course, Tristan can’t go. I mean, it is a whole town of vampire killers. So instead Tristan is going to hunt down Diana. Right away I am saddened by Kira and Tristan’s goodbye. I just don’t want them to be apart. When you get a couple you really like, you want them to be together. And besides, at this point, I’m not entirely sure I

I had to finish reading Kaitlyn Davis book Simmer. This is the second book in her trilogy of Kira. The first one, Ignite, I finished last night. Kaitlyn Davis introduced us to Kira and her back story there. We met Luke and Tristen too. But best was that we were let on to the secret world of conduits and the vampires they rally against. Kaitlyn set up a different set of rules that vampires live by. They can live in sunshine and do not eat the blood of animals. But they also have to be wary of the ...more

This is a mini review, as I did review of all 4 at once, so just giving my thoughts on them, in depth review is on book one.

I loved this book even more than the first one Ignite, I loved watching Kira mature and grow into her powers.

The relationships between her, Luke and Tristin are still going, won’t say much there.

Over all, a great continuation of the series. Love the cover on this one, more unique to the story, and looks cool. Much better than all the others.

5 out of 5 stars.

The book Simmer was a really good story. I like how her powers grew stronger. She learned to controlled them when she had killed Diana. It was awesome to see Diana beg for her life when Kira was killing her. She was real nasty bitchy vampire. I say she deserved to die. I did enjoy every moment of it. I know your Midnight Fire Series are way different from Stephanie Meyer's Twilight Saga series. The only thing that reminded me of Twilight was when Kira falls for a vampire name Tristan.

Excellent read! Just when Kira begins to find inner acceptance and confidence with her newly discovered abilities and past, her world shifts again. Going to Sonneyville to meet the Council of conduits and find her place among her kind over the summer is supposed to bring answers, but instead it seems to raise more questions. When her presence threatens the safety of the Sonneyville conduits, she decides to take control of the situation and seek out those threatening her as well as seek out the t ...more

Simmer picks up a few months after Ignite , and we get the Protector Conduit community! Kira flies down to Sonnyville with Luke to learn how to control her power and to learn more about her parents. But she doesn't know how the community will take her half-breed status, even though they're Protectors—the segment of the Conduits who vied for her life when the other segment, the Punishers, wanted to kill her, and still mig

This is no Twilight copycat. I enjoyed this book more than Ignite (book 1). The only reasons for this is that it started fast and stayed exciting pretty much throughout the whole book. Also the writing and editing where better. In this story Kira has one thing and one thing only on her mind. Where is her mother and could she really still be alive? Kira is summoned by the council to Sonnyville, the conduit community that her mother is from. Luke her best friend is also from there and accompanies ...more
Kira continues her relationship with Tristan, while realizing that her friendship of Luke is slightly fractured when his feelings for her are revealed. Feeling like she is having losing her best friend, Kira focuses on her training and begins to realize her gift as a conduit is unparalled and that Luke seems to be her anchor. Kira finds herself embroiled in a vampire attack and following a lead in finding her mother, who others believe is dead.

Exciting series. Kira is a bit unpredictable and oft

And we’re getting even deeper. After everyone barely escapes in the last book with their lives, it’s time to meet half of Kira’s “people”. All the while trying to find her mom, dealing with crazy vampers, deal with new powers, and not to mention those to HAWT pieces of male lol! I absolutely loved this next installment! It’s fast paced, it’s a little heart wrenching, it’s full of action and suspense and it’s just gets better!

Ah - this book really does simmer. While there is quite a bit of action regarding the vamps and the Protectors, the love triangle is really what got me.

My biggest hesitation about this book is that the heroine, Kira, doesn't overcome many (enough?) obstacles IMHO. She is just so powerful that she blows everyone else out of the...fireplace. She is literally unrivaled by anyone. Kira is pretty interesting in that she really takes everything to heart. Her "black sheep-ness" has really seeped in to

“Simmer” picks up right where “Ignite” leaves off. Kira and Luke travels to Sonneyville where she will train and learn the ways of the Conduits. It isn’t long before she realizes there’s more in Sonneyville than training. She meets someone; it’s an unexpected surprise that leaves her hurt in more ways than one. Tristian is still trying to find Diana and when trouble comes to Kira in Sonneyville it’s up to her to help protect the conduits and their family members that are in danger because of her ...more

This second book has not been bad but slow.

While I was reading, my subconscious was telling me”something is wrong here” I’ve heard her quite a few times and I don’t know why it took me a while to finally recognize my discomfort.
First of all, as I said before in my short review of “Ignite” the story is nothing new…which I can understand since many minds can think alike hence, the similarity on the story give or take different situations but very similar plot.

I personally believe the first book in this series smoothly transitioned into this one, without a lot of confusion like most series. I also feel like there's was the same amount of thrilling mystery, and suspense it just moved a little slower in this novel, but there was a lot more information that was added into this story Vs.The last one so its suspected.

This book was way better than the first one I have to say.

The story developed better and the character emotions were not so dull. The plot progressed well and there was no inconsistencies or situations that made the characters seem stupid.

Kira! She is no longer afraid of her power and her character progressed a little. I love that she is a kick-ass girl that takes charge of her own emotions and is not afraid to get her hands dirty.

The protagonist is a Mary Sue--super-powerful, with a huge destiny and two perfect boys in love with her. She's never in any real danger because her powers are so strong, and she can instantly heal people, even large numbers of people, so no one around her is in danger, either.

I thought things were going to go to a very dark place and I would have relished seeing that happen, but I feel the opportunity was squandered at the end and nothing really worked out.

All I can say is Wow!. This book was so much fun to read. There were times when I laughed out loud until I was in tears for laughing so hard. The mental image of the tall dark Tristan with a t-shirt of a puppy in a Darth Vader costume was too much. I laughed until I cried. It happened again with the mental picture of tall lanky and somewhat goofy Luke stripping in a thong to pay for food made me lose it again. I love that the main characters have evolved so much.
