Well played Tessa Teevan, normally the first book of a series gets the crowning glory, but wow 'Incinerate' swept me off my feet. This story has it all and I'm not shy to confess that I fell in love with Knox and Charlie's roller coaster ride love story. This is a novel not to be missed. Here are my gushy, 'I'm in love with Knox' book thoughts ...

You want to know what I love? Reading a second book in a series that is better than the first. It’s a wonderful feeling to love the first book in a series, then get to the second and love it even more! That’s exactly whats happened to me with Tessa’s Explosive series. Ignite was a fantastic debut novel. If you haven’t read Jace and Lexi’s story, I highly recommend it. But Incinerate... damn! I more than loved it! Knox and Charlie’s story is amazing! One to go

Because of his past experience with his ex girlfriend and the injury he sustained in the war, Knox wasn't the easiest person to get along with. But Charlie had a strong, feisty personality which

You know when you read a debut book by an author and really like it, you are waiting with bated breath to see how good the second book will be. I was not disappointed with this second book by Ms Teevan. I seriously liked Ignite but I seriously LOVED Incinerate….

He’s sweet, he’s an ass, he’s warm, he’s cold. He flirts, he scowls, he drives me absolutely crazy, but dammit if my heart doesn’t melt when he smiles.

This is the story a guy named Knox who joins the military mostly because he caught the so called "love of his life" screwing his brother. So he enlisted and left for 10 years but is forced to come home when he is injured in battle.
This guy is definitely not my idea of an alpha hero at first. He is still hung up on his ex Megan. For example he says this about her "Thank God she hasn’t shown up at the house. She’s still so damn beautiful and it hurt to look at her when

Well, in this case, the second time was even better than the first! This was a re-read for the release of the re-edited version with two added bonus scenes coming out on July 21st.

I’m upping my rating from 4 to 5 stars because it was just that good. I remember loving both Knox and Charlie the first time around but this time, these two on their own and as a team just robbed me of my heart and soul. LOVED THEM!!

Knox is seriously all alpha and sex-on-a-stick and Charlie is sexy, sass

Incinerate by Tessa Teevan is the second book of the Explosive series. If you haven’t read her first debut book, Ignite, I suggest no scratch that I urge you to go One-Click Ignite on Amazon. You do not want to miss out reading Jace McAllister and his first love, Lexi. Plus, you also don’t want to miss out on the hilarious term of “BC.” You are probably wondering what does “BC” stands

Knox, whom enlisted after discovering his high school sweetheart was cheating on him with his brother. Charlie, is a guys girl. Knox has returned home after being injured on the field and Charlie is the volunteer who was assigned to help him.

Lately, I've been sticking mainly to M/M reads because M/F reads just haven't wowed me.

Incinerate was my first book by Tessa Teevan and now I'm more than intrigued by her other books.

I'm curious to read about Jace and Lexi who were the first couple in the explosive series. They are a huge part of this one but you don't get all the details and I'm very interested to know them all.

Incinerate is about Knox and Charlie. The first one is an injured soldier and the other one is a volunteer to help wounded soldiers.

The synopsis for this book pretty much covers all you need to know. I don’t want to say much about the plot because I think going into this book with your mind wide open is the best way to experience Knox and Charlie’s journey. What I will say though, is that these two

Knox Wellington aka Rugged grew up in a wealthy family in Tennessee, where his whole life has been planned out. All his plans change after his high school sweetheart breaks his heart. He needs to get away from it all and decides to join the army. His parents don't understand his decision, and as a result they haven't spoken in years.

And that help comes in form of Charlie.

Knox is not used to relying on others for help. That makes him act like a bit rude to others.

Especially Charlie, who volunteers to assist him.

Of course they both have baggage.

But they can get over that together!

As much as I loved Ignite, I have to say that this book, for me, was even better than the first. The author accomplished something that is not very common for me: I absolutely loved BOTH the Hero and heroine equally. Typically, I tend to like the Hero more, and if I don't like the Hero? Well then I just don't like the book at all. In this case, I think I got a little crush on both of these characters-they were amazing. And together...they were flawless. The perfect fit.

I loved Knox and Charlie! Now let me say, I did like Ignite but Incinerate was SO good. The writing was great, the story was great, the characters rocked and we got Jase & Lexi in this story too. Knox had been burned by the slut liar bitch Megan which we heard about in book one but get more details in this one to make me hate her more. The hurt and pain caused him to live a life without love, only random meaningless hookups. Until.....

Unfortunately, this novel and I are not compatible. Not that there is something awful about it, I just find myself falling asleep every time I pick it up. It's a snooze fest for me.

It is too repetitive and too wordy with lots of unnecessary details. Pages and pages of blah bla bla and I can easily phrase it in two sentences!

Naturally, the book drags a lot. The characters think about the same thing over and over, and maybe 3 or 4 chapters later, they think about the same thing again, so pages a

Knox: Mr. Broody-jaded-hunky-military man. Aka: Rugged. He's rough, tough and rugged around the edges. He rectifies a wall around his heart that no one can break through, or so he thinks.

DNF at 55%. I started out liking it, but as the book goes, it starts to drag and get repetitive. The premise sounds interesting and I enjoy a good military hero. However, it was hard to relate to him. He was cheated on when he was 18, 11 years ago, and he's still hurting over the experience and automatically assumes all women will do the same thing. Maybe if it had happened more recently, I'd have an easier time believing it. The heroine is a strong, smart, independent woman and I did like her, ...more
