About 2 years ago, Paranormal Romance was my favorite genre and pretty much all I read. There are times though, that reading the same things over and over getting pretty well... redundant. So that's when I got on my YA kick. Temptation by Fire was an amazingly hot & sexy read that reminds me why I love this genre so much. Although this is on the shorter side, it definitely wasn't lacking; in plot or steaminess!

I loved Ava and Karson. Ava is torturedkick. Temptation

Talk Supe review

The best part about TEMPTATION BY FIRE is the romance! For a short novel I expect some sort of "insta" to happen. Thank the muses TAllee didn't give us cheap thrills! Ava and Karson immediately crushed on each other, that's for sure, but like normal people, they exercised control! I appreciate the power of passion but sexual chemistry still has t

I loved this book, it was kind of a Greek tragedy style paranormal romance. The main character of Ava was a pleasant change from the seemingly endless epidemic of useless ‘oh, woe is me’ female leads. It’s also great to see a well-built world for the characters to live in that doesn’t emulate every other book in its genre – imagination really does go a long way in creating a decent read.

Karson is a perfect alpha male lead and perfectly compliments Ava. There’s tension in their buddin

What a great para/suspense/romance, inhaled it in one sitting. The characters were amazing; watching Ava grow from a timid mouse to Zena, warrior princess. Karson slowly shows his softer side, and Miriam, boy do I have a visual on her. The story is fast paced and a different take on demons and those who hunt them.

I hope there's more to the series, I'd love to see Miriam and Caleb hook up.

I received an advance copy in return for an honest review. All opinions are my own

I saw Tiffany talking about her new book Temptation By Fire on Facebook and remembered how much I loved Don’t Bite The Bridesmaid. I was like Tiffany, I need this, now.

So she sent it. Thank you so much for my ARC. And I LOVED it just as much as I loved the first book I read by her.

Ava is a woman who sees visions of peoples’ deaths when she touches them, not every time, but often enough that she doesn’t touch people. Besides her best friend Miriam, she isolates herself, or people do it for her. Her family was

I've had this one on my to read shelf for a while now. Should have read it earlier! This one had me reading non-stop over the afternoon. Lots of excitement to be had here as I waited to see who was going to win...the Venators (hunters) or the demons.

While this is a standalone book, I sincerely hope that Ms. Allee has more in store for Ava, Karson, and their friends. This was a great way to start a series.

Ava has a curse...or a gift...she is psychic and with skin to skin touch, she can see glimpses of the future. Most

Ava is used to strange-ness - with her flashes of the future when she touches skin, so seeing a fiery death scares her but not enough to not try to save the man. Little does she know that the man is a demon, and the one doing the exorcism isnt as evil as first glance would have it.
Karson is a Venator - hunting demons and keeping people safe, but this woman with her predictions is jeopardising his latest assignment. She manages to end up in the middle of it all and before she knows it, her whole

I found this book to be very refreshing and a nice change of pace from what I have been reading lately!

This wasn't a...soft book, though that's not quite what I mean. Brutal, dark and very few assurances of a HEA working out in the long term (not because Ava and Karson would fall out, but because in all likelihood slow awful death awaits them) not quite for the faint of heart.

Basically its a brisk departure from Allee's other paranormal romances but not in a bad way.

Longer review later.

An intriguing story with romance, mystery, demons and hunters!

Ava Keller is a young woman trying to live a normal life with an extraordinary gift. She can see someone’s future (good or bad) just by a simple touch so she tries to stay away from people and prefers to work with animals. While visiting her only friend Miriam at work Ava accidentally touches a man and sees his untimely death in a vision, which sparks the interest of demon hunter Karson. He believes Av

This was such a fun ride! A great steamy paranormal romance. What would you do if you could touch someone and see their death? I think I’d freak out LOL

Ava has literally retreated into herself because she doesn’t want to touch or be touched, you never know what she might “see”. She’s also tried to stop those “sights” from happening to only have it get worse. Ava is completely withdrawn except for her best friend Miriam. And one day, with Miriam, she meets two men, and when one touches her, she

Temptation by Fire by Tiffany Allee is a thrill ride paranormal romance with a future seeing heroine and an emotionally scarred demon hunting hero out for vengeance. Despite the tendency towards insta-love in this book I still found it quite entertaining. Ava is a strong heroine, she’s sees the future (often violent) when she touches people so she goes without physical touch. She has exactly one friend and a family that fears her. She has a job she loves wit

Picked this one because of the author and storyline looked good. Let me tell you it was more than good for sure. Right away introduced to 2 girls Miriam and Ava at a hospital cafeteria because that is where Ava has met her friend, her one and only friend. Her friend was soon to graduate from med school and needed her opinion on something and discussing what to do that night when they are found staring at two guys who come over to them. Thomas and Karson- one chilly and one tough guy. But thanks ...more

Temptation by Fire was a really good story. I got it from NetGalley and actually pretty randomly started it because I didn't really know what else to start even though I have so many unread titles on my Kindle. I'm super glad I did decide to start it already!

This is another amazing book by Tiffany Allee. She creates such amazing characters we come to love and enjoy. This book is no exception.

Ava keeps secrets now. No matter how she tries to warn people of the things she sees, it never helps. No one has truly loved her and she really feels alone other than having her best friend with her. Until she meets the mysterious brooding Karson.

Karson has been working for someone he shouldn't be while working on revenge. He has everything planned

This was a really interesting read with many creative twists and turns. Very creative storytelling. Great pace, I never felt those pangs of boredom.

Ava was not my favorite character in the beginning. She was a bit more on the naive side than I generally like my heroines. She also has a touch of angst to her, fortunately she grows on you. By the end I was very happy with the way she manned up, so to speak.

Karson is one of those ever so yummy damaged heroes, sigh, just what

What she doesn't know is that the friend is Karson a demon hunter. Karson is pure alpha male with a tortured past.

Intense romance inside of high stakes and action. Karson starts off as a rough hero. Following the deaths of his family, he's lived in a world of anger and violence. It's kind of fatalistic. He isn't looking to improve the world or himself. He just wants to destroy as many demons as possible, all while believing he's probably not going to survive it. Ava's the opposite, sheltered and isolated because of a psychic sensitivity triggered by touch. She's resigned herself to a small life, until a vis ...more

I have read all of Ms Allee's books and was not disappointed by this new book. This book is fast paced. Ava, our heroine, at first appeared shy and weak. However, as the story progressed, her inner strength showed. When she first faced the evil creature Shadowman, she didn't just freeze at the scene but acted quickily to help Karson, our hero of this story, to get rid of this evil creature. Karson is a great alpha character, full of internal conflicts and struggles because of his dark past - his ...more

Tiffany Allee has introduced a new cast of wonderful characters to fall in love with, and hopefully follow in many future books.

The heroine, Ava, is a shy wallflower with a secret. With one touch, she may see your fate, and experience has shown her it’s not welcome knowledge. She has resigned herself to the fact she is better off tending to her animal charges, and only having one true friend, Miriam. Fortunately, life has a way of gi

Psychic, Ava Keller, hates her gift, or her curse as she preferred to refer to it. Karson is a demon hunter seeking revenge for the death of his family. Together they need to stop two demons who threaten humanity.

Being from Chicago, I always like when books take place there. I actually used to live in the same neighborhood where Ava’s house is supposed to be. So needless to say visualizing the neighborhood was pretty easy for me.
