Spencer and I have been enemies for as long as I can remember. Though it wasn't hard to fall into lust with him. And things seemed to be headed to love before unspeakable things happened to me...

Spencer was supposed to be my rock. My angel. He turned out to be none of those things. What he did hurt more then the tragedy. I don't think I will ever be able to forgive him...

2 Stars...not sure. It would've been a 4 star book had there not been so much drama, unbelievable drama, at that. It just ended up being far fetched and a bit ridiculous.

Also, I'm positive that no matter how hot Spencer was in real life, I would never take him back. The circumstances surrounding what he did WHEN he did...ugh, just no. There's no excuse in general, but for him to do that when he did, NO! The drama with the father was so unnecessary. All of the drama was just over-kill.

I must confess, I thought this book was going to be a total fucking mess before I read it and I’d have to take a week to recover. I read this review online and it sounded like Spencer was going to do the unforgivable thing - cheat. Yep, I said it.
There are hard fucking lines and this was one of them. I just don’t see how you can trust someone like that. There’s no excuse. It’s a done deal. Do not pass begin, do not collect $200. Take no prisoners and all that.
The only exception I ever made was S

Liked it...until the hero fucked up in such a big way, I skimmed to the end. No way the heroine should have taken him back! fucking way!!

This book pissed me off and put me in a shitty mood. Now I need to find something light-hearted and fun to read to try and get rid of the bad taste it left behind...

Much like other books I have read by Amanda Heath, 'Fire in her eyes' is not your typical YA book, the writing is almost darker and deals with some difficult issues. This book has a mix of young love, pain, heartache, true friendship, lasting love and most of all over the top DRAMA.

There are some minor mistakes throughout the book, which to some I know will find distracting, but overall I was able to overlook. The book does fit ALOT in for such a short read and it almost seems rushed in parts,

I've been stewing over this review for a day or two, trying to think how to go about it. I received the book from the author in exchange for an honest review. Thank you. The book started off slow. Picked up pace about 20 pages into it and it was admittedly a fast read. (Only 140ish pages, I think) The story was entertaining but there were a lot of problems with it for me.
1) The dialogue is what I imagine to be a cross between Jersey Shore and Hillbilly Handfishin'.
2) Spencer's inexcusable disc

Shelves: abuse, witless
So far: immature and unimaginative - from writing and text/dialogue to the characters' state of mind and behavior. I can't find any likeable feature. And I really, really had enough with the guys and their dimples. They seem to overpopulate the fictional world.
Maybe the series will get better.
The 1st book I read by Amanda Heath was "This Beautiful Thing",which I liked. I had big hopes that things will improve no matter what series or story she'll come up with next. This one doesn't work with m

I must warn you that there is a scene of violence and rape, although the rape wasn't written in detail, Ms. Heath wrote it with care.

Harley Maxton and Spencer Grady have been enemies since they were 5 years old and living next door to each other hasn’t been easy either. Throughout their childhood they have made each other’s lives a living hell by pulling pranks on each other. Everyone in town knows that Harley and Spencer belong together, it is just too bad they can’t be in the

A great read, I really enjoyed it!

This was very well written, not only was it truly captivating but it was constantly evolving from the start to the end.

Harley Maxton and Spencer Grady have this huge love/hate relationship but you can see the sparks flying between the two and that they shouldn't fight the attraction that is obviously there.

I liked how Spencer loved her even through the horrifc event that Harley went through he found a way to keep fighting for her.

Writing: -1 star
Plot... 2 stars. Unexpected things happened but... they were also unbelievable. Or maybe it was the crappy writing that made it unbelievable.
You can't even imagine how many times I just wanted to stop reading this book but I wanted to see what else would happen. Would aliens come to earth and help clear everything up and would all the humans just be like "Yo, dude, thanks for the help wanna go out for pizza? How about that game yesterday, it was crazy, eh?"

Easily the worst "romance" book I've ever read. The writing was terrible, the plot was unrealistic and the characters were unlikeable. Honestly in what world does a H who cheats on the h right after she's been raped deserve any type of HEA. Steaming hot garbage.

Well this book had me interested in the beginning. But I lost my interest.

I don't understand how many won't things happened.

Rape, Cheating, Murder, ew.

It was just so dumb. I think what kept on ticking me off was Mason. Harley thought he was hot. The author said in the hospital that he was pretty big in Spencer's POV and then contradicts herself when he's said to be a gang leader who Spencer then calls small. Then later on he's a drug lord, then a mob boss, then Harley's brother.

Man. I can't believe what I've just read. I am at a fault between This Beautiful Thing and Fire in Her Eyes! I have to say that I'm probably loving Spencer more. I received this book as an ARC and I'll make it as simple as possible!

There was so much passion, emotion, and power in this book that moved me. Harley reminded me of myself. She was real, had FIRE and didn't take any crap. It was sad what happened to her and I could feel her pain. I know it had to be hard for her to cope with it!

Tragedy, Love, Surprise ... this book has all three! Remember when you were in school and there was that boy who always picked on you? Your mom probably said "It just means he likes you." Well this is how the story of Harley and Spencer starts. It is written from both of their perspectives, which I love. You no longer have to wonder what the other one is thinking, you get to read both sides of the story. And now a bit about the story ...

Spencer & Harley

So the love-hate thing in the beginning was a rather obvious result for the both of them.
Then the book does a complete 180 and the drama has no end.

*She gets raped
*Spencer cheats on her the day she is released from hospital
*She finds out and the great love ends.

*He tries to win her back
*He does.

*Her father comes looking for her(who is dating his mother)
*She then in turn finds out that he is not her real father
*He killed her mother and real father
*Mason(the guy that belongs to

Shelves: year-2012 was a good book but had too many things going on simultaneously...plots which were not even needed were there...n wat to say abt Spencer...he might be the hero but I can't stand ppl who cheat n that too when Harley was the most vulnerable n needed can u justify such act by saying that u were not in ur right mind n blah blah...

Well what to say. I enjoyed up to a point then the Jackass Spencer did something that I would never forgive and what was up with the twist the author gave Harley's dad???? I hope the 2nd book is about Lucy and Mason!!!

OMG where to start...this story really fucked with my head.
well I'm still giving it 3 ★ because the story had so much potential and in the beginning I really like the protagonists. Besides, everyone who finishes a story has my respect, since I personally suck at making it past chapter 3 everytime I try to write myself^^

I thought this might just be one of those cute stories where former enemies find their love which would have totally worked for me...I love this kind of stories and no matter how

I liked the beginning with the intense love hate and the cracking of tension between Harley and Spencer.
I think where I was a little disappointed was how he instantly was okay in love and that was it. I thought there should have been more resistance on Spencer's side. The big boom threw me off and made me question what I was reading. Mix that with the friends situation and Spencer, it was just a lot going on.
The connection between them is intense and the intense scenes of action were written re
