OMG just amazing. A perfect end to a perfect story. I wish it could go on forever. I love Autumn and Hunter. They are so different but so perfect together. I loved this series. These characters weren't like other books, they weren't rich they didn't have trust funds or anything, they were actual people I could relate to and I love the story even more because of it. I'll admit I even cried at the end. All in all a great ending for these characters. I can't wait to read more from this author. ...more

Oh Hunter you have such a way with words, "can it wait? I wanna eff your brains out," I say, grabbing her wrists and wrapping them around my neck." We see a totally different Hunter in this book I mean the boy is just wild about his girl, "I lift her up from the countertop as she tightly wraps her legs around me. If she wants to see my room, fine, she can see my effing room. But I'm not letting go of her. I'll carry her there, no problem. However, I'm not taking my hands off her. She's mine." He ...more

I was absolutely floored by this second installment in the Fierce series. This is the Epic continuation of Hunter and Autumn's story.
I was put through the whole gambit of emotions with this one, everything from laughter to downright anger and everything in between.
After tearing himself up trying to please everyone, Hunter finally realizes he just can't do what Autumn and his brother want, it's just not in him. He has a learning disability (compliments of his drug addict mother) that prevents him

After succeeding in getting his brother out of jail, Flame is a story of Autumn and Hunter learning to have the "normal" relationships that occur in college, only Hunter is now plagued more than usual by his shortcomings and has to find a way to feel like he is "doing his part." Haunted by demons of his past, is he able to move on and have what could be a very healthy and happy life? Despite what can be considered obsessive and erratic behaviors, is Autumn able to

I have been a fan of his Fierce series for awhile now, and I was so excited when I was offered the opportunity to read an advanced copy of Flame in return for my honest opinion. Well here goes!!! The beginning made me smile a lot at the release of Jessie, everything that happened in the first book led us up to this very special day.

Flame picks up where Fierce and Fury left off. It begins during a very happy moment for Autumn and Hunter. :)

I absolutely LOVED the interaction between Jessie and Hunter.

I will say that while reading, I became a little frustrated with Hunter and Autumn. There were moments when I thought Hunter was being your typical controlling a**hat and Autumn was being your typical "I love him" forgiving female. That frustrated me. It also frustrated me t

Hunter and Autumn are back and wow have things changed.

Hunter’s brother Jessie is out of jail and Autumn has now seen where Hunter lives. He is trying to be more forthcoming with things to her in hopes of never losing her.

Hunter has become more dominate in a lot of ways and Autumn also is showing some spunk.

Before I get into my review of Flame, I think I owe the parents of the cover model a big THANK YOU. Because he's hot. Seriously hot. I-can't-take-my-eyes-off-the-cover-long-enough-to-read-the-book hot. In fact, the covers for all three of the Fierce books, and the novella, have been visually delightful. Man, I do love a good cover. Not just a hot man cover - although I think we can all agree that they are in a class of their own - but anything that's eye-catching.

She just keeps bringing you back in for more. Clarissa knows how to keep dangling that carrot in front of your face to keep you wanting more! This book will keep you on the edge of your seat because you have no idea what to expect next. The passion that she puts into her books, seeps out of the pages. You can tell that she writes with her heart and she doesn't hold back.

I love this series. These two young adults have faced so much and both have learned to love. This has been a emotional read and I absolutely loved it. I hope there is more for the brother as he may have done things wrong but love for his sibling to have more and be more was at the for front.

This is truly more than 5 stars.

Even with so many differences between them - Autumn, a great student, totally focused on studies, while Hunter has a serious learning problem - the romance moves on. And the couple seems even willing to stay together.
Hunter 's brother, Jesse, is released from prison after Hunter had infiltrated the gang that sold drugs in the area of ​​college and managed to find out who was the boss. Autumn , Leafy as he calls her, is part of this phase of their lives and finds out some more facets of her boyfr

I received this book for an honest review. On the 5-star rating systems, it gets 4 stars from me. On my blog rating, which uses 10-star ratings, it gets 7.5 stars. I'm rounding up because I think that this was an excellent conclusion to Hunter and Leafy's story and I want to recognize that. But there were some issues that made this my least-favorite entry in the series.

First, my annoyance at some of Hunter's attitude in Fury carried over to

I'm loving this series!! Hunter in my eyes can do no wrong and between his alpha prowess and his vulnerability, he's fast becoming one of my favourite book boyfriends and the once reserved and innocent Autumn is doomed when it comes to her feelings for Hunter.

My body craves him. My mind knows it should focus on studying, but it's turning to liquid.

I received the book as an ARC for an honest review. I am a big fan of this series and do not give many 5 star reviews but boys does this one ever deserve it. This book is not a stand alone you need to read Fierce and Fury first. This way you can understand all the references made in this book. Now with that being said we really see the possessive feelings that Hunter has for Autumn. We also see his continued feelings of self doubt regarding himself. Hunter still feels like he will never be good ...more

Great conclusion to a good series.

Autumn and Hunter are back and we get a look inside the dynamics of there relationship. We see them grow into a couple and battle everyday problems. We see them grow into a more mature couple. The author did good with further character development. We get to see inside their pasts and view the families they came from.

Autumn is still very naive and immature in all things relationship related. She is struggling to underrstand the way things work with a be

This is the continuation of the love story between Hunter and Autumn. In this book we get to see them slowly maturing into adulthood and grow as a couple. We have to remind ourselves that they are young and sometimes don’t always react appropriately to situations when it occurs in their relationship. On the plus side they have good friends and family who are very supportive and help them get through it.

Hunter is very much an alpha male; possessive and temperamental, but his love for Autumn helps

Well they say, all good things come to an end, and this is the final chapter into the lives of Autumn and Hunter. Clarissa has given us just the right ending to this series; This book, definitely had a lot more of a sensitive undertone as we get glimpses of some of Hunter's past, these passages in the book by no stretch of the imagination were easy to read, they were poignant in understanding a lot of Hunter's background

What a roller coaster ride this book is. The emotions and the turmoil along with all the struggles they have to endure to get to a better place. This story sucked me in and I went on the ride with them. Happy and sad, Hot and horny, It’s got it all with lots of emotions flaring. Very well written book and extremely enjoyable to read.

Flame picks up right where we left Autumn and Hunter at the end of Fierce & Fury. After reading both books, I had thought that's where the story would end but oh, Clarissa Wild had so much more in store for the young couple. Their path to true love and happiness wasn't going to be smooth!

A perfect and fitting ending to Hunter & Autumn's story

Well, Flame was an ugly cry for me because of the things they have had to endure. His dominance over her mind, body and soul is all she ever wanted, but will his secrets tear them apart or will it only make them stronger.

Loved this book & can not wait to read more by this author! ! Great story about the bookworm meeting the bad boy at college and the two of them able to change each other for the best. Hunter and Autumn are the perfect example of opposites attract. While this relationship is building their is lots of drama with the dynamics of long term friendships changing and serious dangerous issues occurring. I was totally surprised by the ending and can't not wait to find out what happens next.
