I dream of flames that are soul deep

But if they should come

If the fire my flesh should crave.

I love a story about broken characters and the ones found in Written In Flames couldn’t be more lost. One was a pyromaniac, a man damaged by his past and intensely drawn to the flames. The other was consumed by her demons, which evolved into an eating disorder, OCD, and a fear of touch. She had a blaze burning from deep within and didn’t know whether to feed it or to put it out. Both had no clue what it was to be who they were individually, much less what it was to be together. And there was a ...more

Twisted Romance meets Criminal Minds. A dark romance with a foreboding feel, an impending doom, a page turner that will leave you begging for more.

Two dysfunctional, lonely people. Emo watches ballerina. Neither knowing the haunted past and broken soul of the other. The spark is undeniable, but the flames could be the end of their story. Will they burn hot, or burn out?

From page one, you see the shadows, they are creeping in the dark, waiting, wanting a different end to their tragic beginnings

Nolan and Delilah have set each other alight in this romantic suspense, but passion is a wildfire which devours everything in its path. Broken people shouldn’t play with matches.

This book is different from anything that I have read before. It is a story that really defies any particular genre. Nolan and Delilah are both so beautifully broken and easy to love although the two of them are quite unlovable people. They should not work together but somehow they do. He's a pyromaniac and his first mistress is fire. She has severe OCD and cannot stand to be touched. They both harbor secrets from their pasts. There are a few surprise twists and turns that added to this richly l ...more

Written In Flames is written by one of favourite Authors, A.Giannoccaro, I have read all of her previous books and was really looking forward to reading what her co-author ,Eva Logan, could bring to make this book different.

These two authors together have delivered a truly unique story

Wow. I rarely read when I’m on holidays visiting my family but I just had to read this story. Although I didn’t read it in one sitting I treasured the moments I spent with Nolan and Delilah.

Delilah is an ex ballerina with OCD. She has inherited her family business which she is struggling with.

Nolan is a pyromaniac. He craves fires and it’s about to get hotter as he sets his eyes on Delilah.

This book is just AMAZING!

There are no words to describe my love for this book. It's unique and beautifully written, the type of book that stays with you long after you have read it. Delilah and Nolan are two flawed and broken souls each in different ways but they are perfect together, like pieces of a puzzle completing each other. Their story is intense and this book is consuming. I could not put it down - it's an intriguing, suspenseful and emotional story with a few surprises you won't see co

I'm just goin to come right out and say that this book just didn't quite do it for me. And that makes me sad, because I had such high hopes. The plot kept my attention but I couldn't get a connection going with the characters, especially Delilah. Nolan appealled to me a bit more but the two together just annoyed me. By the end, I didn't really care if they ended up together or not. It was the plot, with it's twists and turns, that kept me going to the end.

I voluntarily accepted an ARC of this book and here is my honest review.

*Spoiler FREE*

Someone call the fire brigade I think I caught alight. This was a sizzling story, dark, gripping and I was captivated. Delilah and Nolan, wow what a pair, I absolutely loved reading their story. Flawed to perfection it was so beautiful, the slow build up had me gasping for breath and I was flushed throughout it was that hot, and I'm not just talking about the fires!

Written in flames by Ashleigh Giannoccaro and Eva Logan.

What can I say really. This author has always held a special part of my heart and this book is no exception to that. The added bonus being that another author has been thrown into the mix that I will now have to go and stalk (sorry not sorry)

It is beautifully written while being detailed in its content and just has you over a barrel until you have finished the very last word. It’s words are enthralling and just simply won’t let you go unti

Nolan is an, “anti-social, pyromaniac with obsessive tendencies”. Delilah has issues with food and a bad case of OCD. They both suffered through abuse as adults are seriously flawed, the perfect fit for one another. I really enjoyed the story of how these to get together. The characters are extremely unique and how they cope with life (and the third character, a stalker) was very entertaining. Best of all, the emotions between the main characters was intense and palpable.

Can two deeply damaged people fall in love and build a ‘normal’ relationship? Written in Flames tells the story of Nolan and Delilah, who are each trapped in their own kind of hell. The book is a teamwork from Ashleigh Giannoccaro and newbie author Eva Logan. I’ve enjoyed reading this Romantic Suspense story.
“She is more alluring than any fire, her soft skin, and bony figure, you can see how damaged she is below the surface. The way she smiles with only one side of her mouth, and the way her ey

Written in the Flames by Ashleigh Giannoccaro and Eva Logan was therapeutic a feeling of been consumed by fire; damaging, painful yet a euphoria of burning lust, passion, and cleansing for soul.

The way the story set up I was already intiguied by the characters and set up finding myself flipping through the pages as a tone was starting to form. Delilah and Nolan have both been scorned and broken by their past leading them to have some psychological disorders. Nol
Nadia Debowska-Stephens (Obsessed by Books)
“Remembering the bits and pieces now, I think I was born broken, I was never meant to be around people, I had a fire in me even then.”

Beautifully broken, warped and fractured Nolan and Delilah are drawn to the demons they see reflected in each other’s gaze. Both have control issues, both have triggers and both of them recognise that they need each other to exist. He is the mysterious tenant that sits and watches in the dark, she is the siren that is slowly being swallowed whole by her problems.

Dark and suspenseful! Nolan and Delilah's story was beautiful, yet dark and broken. Passionate slow burn that I had trouble putting down. All of Ms Giannoccaro's books are just know you're in for a treat. Both characters have OCD but for different compulsions. This is another one that I recommend you go in blind because of the surprises and suspense! 5 stars for sure!

Nolan’s a pyromaniac who is renting and living in the loft of an industrial building. He spends his time sitting on the fire escape watching his landlord sit in her office. She’s a mystery to him other than the glances they share through the slats of her blinds. Delilah has her hands full with a company audit. When her appointed auditor Tom Cooper takes a little too much interest in her, she tries shaking him off. Nolan comes to her rescue a few times barging into her office to interrupt Tom’s i ...more

Whoa! I was drawn into this book like a moth is drawn to a flame. Co-written books are tricky, two different people, with different ways of thinking can lead to a disaster or a phenomenal book. Ashleigh and Eva nailed, Written in Flames!

This book is not like anything I've ever read before. It's fresh, edgy and downright smoldering in heat! Nolan is a pyromaniac, a recluse. He doesn't let anyone get close to him. He does his job, gets paid and sets shit on fire.

I was really excited for this story, anything with Ashleigh Giannoccaro's name on it is a best seller in my eyes! Her writing is always filled with such stories that just makes me lose sight of reality. There is always some kind of fuckery and some kind of phenomenon that isn't talked about just yet in all of her stories. She always makes me gasp in horror- I mean surprise, and really say wow.
To hear she partnered with Eva Logan was a pleasant surprise! I just knew these two would come up with

I'm a massive fan of A Giannoccaro so when I heard she'd teamed up with new to me author Eva Logan I was super excited. You never know what you're going to get from Ashleigh so I had no idea what I was in for especially with this book been co written.

This book is so different to what I was expecting and I can't tell you how much loved it!

Pyromaniac Nolan has issues. Lots of them. He has plenty of demons to deal with that keep him busy. Hes different to most people but he knows he has problems

Holy smokes!!
This read is unlike anything I've ever read, and I loved it!
Intriguing, suspenseful, dark and seductive.
This gripping and unputdownable read was unpredictable and full of surprises.
As I'm reading this intense and delicious read, the phrase "where there's smoke, there's fire" keeps circling my mind.
Cravings are hard to control no matter what they are.
One man's passion is another man's destruction and the story of Delilah, and Nolan affirms that!
This is the most unique and fascinatin

Written in Flames by Ashleigh Giannoccaro. I have to start by saying that this story is how I was first introduced to this author. The Goodbye Man and The Goodbye Girl was my introduction to the sick and twisted mind of Ashleigh. I am a sick and twisted type of reader and this book was all in my lane. Nolan is a pyromaniac who has lived his life being institutionalized. Now out he lives for the fire but now the girl that works late nights in the office of the warehouse he lives in has caught his ...more

This was such a change from what I am use to getting from A Giannoccaro. I swear alone she can do so much. With Eva Logan! Hold the front door. This book did have a slow pace. Thus the reason for the 4 instead of 5 stars. However you can do no wrong mixing sexual tension, fire, and a man like that all in one book. I think at some points I may have been on fire. The overall storyline was a needed change from the common tropes and fluffy book I’ve seen lately. Not much catching my eye there, so wh ...more

A slow burn that will ignite into a raging inferno that is just how the story goes. Nolan and Delilah would be two of the most anti social people with so many idiosyncrasies between them that I'm surprised they found each other. Somehow they just click and make sense. I guess flawed people gravitate to flawed people.

Nolan is constantly being seduced by his "mistress" fire and Delilah needs to scrub her skin red raw from just the slightest touch.

2 broken people who need each other.

I had a hard time getting into this book and sticking with it. The dual POV is basically the same, just told by the other person. I didn't need to rehash it all over again. Let's keep the story flowing.

Nolan and Delilah finally get into the swing of things. Odd copy that they are, they find their footing and try to make a go of it. But it's hard when you have an OCD Ballerina and a Pyromaniac who are deeply in love. It's a challenge one might say, but for Nol
