Spitfire in Love
She’s never at a loss for words. He’s determined to have the last one.
Kara Hawthorne never backs down, especially when it comes to protecting her family.
There he was with his piercing blue eyes and Lucifer black hair.
He was leaning against the wall, a lollipop in his mouth, hot as hell and twice as dangerous.

And you know what he says after seeing her...
“Your wind was so strong it blew me away.”
I mean what the hell is this?
This is beyond embarrassing.

I'm dissappointed. Having met Cam and Kara in Chasing Red and having been so curious about what happened between them, I thought I'd get answer in this book but NOPE.
This book is their beginning, how they met, got along, got to 'dating' but it had nothing to do with what happened between them in Chasing/Always Red, it was all from before and it was extremely disappointing for me. This book should have been written in present/past chapters, that would have been way better fo ...more
The story started out slow, and although I'm all for the "miscommunication trope" I felt it was a bit dragged on and quite repetitive to the point of tiring. Had I've been younger, I would've enjoyed this more... I think.
The last quarter of the book was better however, I found the ending quite a bit rushed that left me a little underwhelmed.
Overall, it didn't work out for me. But if you are in for an angsty YA, this must be it for you. After all, it did received a lot of praise on wattp ...more
Chasing Red #3
DNF ~ I didn’t realize this was a YA genre novel when I began but gave it a chance. At about page 90 I gave up, read the end, realized that it would be a HFN ending that leads to another book and decided not to invest more time reading. I believe that for those who enjoy this genre it may be just the thing but for me...not so much.
Thank you to NetGalley and Sourcebooks Casablanca for the ARC – This is my honest review.
For me – 1 star – didn’t rea ...more
I was 50/50 on this. I really enjoyed some parts and other just didn't strike a cord with me. At the end of the day is was a Rom-Com that had me laughing quote a bit. If you have read the authors other works you will enjoy this.
The characters were a little one dimensional for me and missed the mark on being reliable, but in the end I did finish the book and enjoy the love story portion of it.
I won't rate further because even though this didn't strike with me, it may with you.
Spitfire in Love by Isabelle Ronin is the story of Cameron St. Laurent and Kara Hawthorne.
Cam and Kara have a instant hot connection but Cam isn't sure what his feelings are. This had some funny parts and one part I could have done with out but overall this was a good read with its build to their story. ...more
I loved the development of her characters and fell instantly in love with Cameron. Kara’s character was well developed as well but she just didn’t instantly pull me like Cameron. The interactions between Cam and Kara were awesome, th ...more
From the beginning, their tempers and the passion they have for each other flared. Misunderstandings abound and there is not much communication between the two besides the heated fights. Although this may be a deterrent for some, I believe the avoidance and the miscommunications are true to both cha ...more
I thought this romance was intense and full of delicious sexual tension. Kara is a college student determined to provide for her broken family. She feels this intense connection to Cameron when they meet which both excites and makes her afraid. The best part of this novel is that the author writes in dual perspectives so we have the opportunity to understand Cameron's troubled past and feel the depth of his need for Kara ...more
Thank you to NetGalley and the publisher for letting me read this book.
If I was younger I would probably appreciate this book more. Kara and her intense reactions in seemingly normal conversations started to grate on me and I found it difficult to relate to her. Although when she was with her father she was quite different. I can see why this angsty book had a lot of followers. Wonder what the author will ...more
I must say i get the love at first sight thing but not in both books.
It just yo slow for me and it keeps on dragging in the next one as well. I want cameos of Calab and Red but i got zero.
I do love the mystery of Cam and how Kara is so head strong and confident.
I just need more spice and answers that don't require me to read three books
Compared to Chasing Red i am it' ...more
Will I read Isabelle Ronin again? Is marshmallow fluff scarily sticky? Yes. Just because there was one book I couldn't get behind doesn't mean I'm going to abandon thi ...more
I LOVE reading this book and recommend it.
I received a ARC from Netgalley for a honest review. ...more
( By the way -the part about farting is a gross, I don't like that in romance books.
(“Your wind was so strong it blew me away.”)). ...more
It was a cute read. It has some good quotes, too. It's pretty much the same type of romance, just different names, pasts, occupation, etc.
I'll definitely be checking out the other two books, though. ...more
I am curious as to how their relationship progresses considering how Kara feels about him in the Chasing Red series. ...more
I really do love Kara and Cam. How they met was so so funny. But I've got to say that the ending was soft. I got a bit tired of the "I-kiss-you-and-leave" scenes, since it became constant at some point. But I did enjoy it.
Also, there is no answer as what really went down in Chasing Red, it's like previously. Though I really want to know, I'm not in a hurry. ...more
I'm disappointed but I would read the next book which I hope will answer all of our questions... ...more
If you're looking for a nice cliche, it is.
Kara is a QUEEN.
I enjoyed that book, and I think that if you're not trying to be over critical about it,
you'd find it really fun.
