This was a wonderful read. The well written, engaging story offers a entertaining blend of romance, drama, suspense, emotion and action. I fell very easily for Chance and Kate. They were extremely likable characters and complexly created. I felt the pull of their attraction and the sparks from their chemistry were very obvious. These two had seen and survived so much; I loved that they found each other and got a shot at happiness. I thought they were perfect for each other. With a story line tha ...more

Elle James - Up In Flames (Hellfire, Texas Series Book#6)

Ms. James style is to take the fastest vehicle available and barrel out of the starting gate with a roar, and she never lets up until the end. I love it. Please buckle up and start this adventure with Chance and Kate and find out if they can get their own HEA.

Finally, Chance Grayson’s story. Chance has been in all the books in this series. He is probably the most colorful and certainly an adrenaline junky of the brothers. However, I didn’

We finally get Chance's story!

I've been looking forward to reading Chance's story ever since I read about him in Hellfire in High Heels and Playing with Fire. In those two books he was a secondary character but I knew I'd get to read about his story eventually.

I love that this book is about a kick-ass heroine, who is former military, and her retired military war dog (MWD). Kate is a really fantastic character. She's starting over with a new job and a new place to live, after getting rid of her c

Kate Bradley arrives at her apartment with her now-retired military dog after leaving her military dog-training career ready to start a new life. It's been nine months since she last stepped into her apartment just before her deployment to Afghanistan. PU! It sure didn't look or smell like this when she left her boyfriend here, the boyfriend she tried to evict after he refused to pay rent. It smelled bad and looked bad. But what was even worse was finding a naked, post-coital blonde in her bed a ...more

I have waited a long time for this story. This is a great addition to this awesome series. The plot was wonderful and kept me glued to my e-reader. I couldn't read this fast enough. I cheered when I found out that Chance was next for his' story. Chance is the former Army turned firefighter, who returned home after losing the love of his life on his last deployment. Kate gets out of the Army with her MWD, Bracchus, and

Up In Flames by Elle James is the sixth book in the Hellfire Series and definitely worth reading.
After being deployed for nine months Kate was coming home and changing things up in her life. First thing is to get her ex out of her apartment, pack up and move to Hellfire Texas and start her new job as a Sheriff's Deputy. She was looking forward to a quiet small town life and not having to deal with relationship issues.
Chance Grayson had been back in Hellfire for several years working for the fi

I enjoyed reading this story. It was an interesting and fun read. I loved coming back to Hellfire, TX and getting Chance's story. We knew that he had a lot going on and was having some problems but not exactly what they were from the previous books in this series. This can be read as a standalone without any problems though. We don't miss any information from previous books that are needed in this one. I loved Kate! She was a great character and perfect for Chance. This felt like a fast read. It ...more

I have not read the previous stories in the series, and was concerned that would be an issue. Rest assured that it’s definitely a stand alone.
The story revolves around Kate Bradley and Chance Grayson. Kate is a former Army dog handler, and the new deputy in Hellfire, TX. A job she sought after leaving behind the Army and a less than stellar ex.
Chance , a former Army Ranger, suffered a great loss during deployment and still has nightmares. Even surrounded by family and working as a firefighter, h

Woohoo! Another fantastic book from Elle James. Up In Flames is Ms. James' latest release in the Hellfire Series (book 6) but this can be read as a standalone. This is a fairly quick read, perfect for those with limited reading time. The characters in this book are phenomenal. Kate brings her military career to an end when she returns from Afghanistan. She already has a new job lined up in Hellfire. All she needs to do now is kick her boyfriend to the curb and collect her belongings. Chance is e ...more

I have loved all the books in the Hellfire series, but this is my favorite. Each book is a stand alone, but each book takes place in Hellfire, Texas and we get to see some of the same people in each book but we meet new people in each book too. I received an ARC for an honest review. I loved this book. It's Chance and Kate's story. He's a former Army Ranger but is now a firefighter and she is former Army too, but was military police and she also trained military dogs. When her dog, Bacchus, got ...more

This is book 6 in the Hellfire, Texas series and it features Chance and Kate. He’s carrying around some PTSD from events that happened while deployed. Even though she had previously been deployed, her issues stem from what awaited her after she came home. She’s decided to start over in the small town of Hellfire, Texas. It’s true what they say about love. You find it when you’re not even looking for it.

Fantastic characters! This book has a great story line that was complete with smooth flowing

I highly recommend these books. The characters are interesting and the romantic suspense plots keep me interested. I find Elle James's books to be entertaining and I like following the characters in the series. I enjoy reading about military characters in a story. I requested and was lucky enough to get an advanced reader copy thru the author and this is my voluntary review. Give this series a try, you won't be disappointed.

This one will help you realize just what Vets. can go through after they leave the military. A wonderful story. The book was well written and the characters were fantastic. There is some suspense but I don't do spoilers so get the book and see what I am talking about.

A quick, easy and very enjoyable read.
The new cop and the fireman both determined to only be friends but sparks were flying. The small town has some criminal activity. Did she bring it with her? I loved the interaction with the K9, the hero of the story. I could see what was coming but I enjoyed the journey of getting there. Hopefully their story will continue in the background of other character's stories.

Up in Flames Elle James Kate and Chance were drawn together from the first and they fought the attraction. Bacchus tends to anchor her while pushing her towards Chance. A good development of characters whom you can relate to and whom you want to get their happy ever after. A sweet romance with a touch of suspense. Once I picked it up couldn’t put it down. Sweet romance

Explosive read!

Love this latest book in the Hellfire series, Chance and Kate are steamy hot together and no matter how much they tell themselves they are just friends those pesky emotions keep getting the better of them.
As the threats and danger increase they are drawn to each other and the safety they feel together, join them for a visit to Hellfire, Texas you won't be disappointed!

A well written perfectly paced story pulling you in from the start. This is a quick read about Chance and Kate and the action they go through to keep you turning the pages in their adventure. Book six in the series but a standalone read. You don't have to read the others in order to follow along.

Good read

Love military men, cowboys, firemen and law enforcement. He's ex-military, firemen and cowboy. She's ex-military with an ex-war dog, and law enforcement. Love the war dog. They all come together to find an arsonist. But can they stay together ❤? There's humor, angst, romance, a little danger, and very tiny bit of sex at the end. Highly recommend.

Another enjoyable read from Elle James. This book is Chance’s turn at love in Hellfire. Heroine Kate is a fantastic one. She is smart, loyal and a great fit for Chance. I had the plot twist at the end already figured out, but it was still a fun read.

Chance a man torn apart by his past. Katie learning to trust and start over in a new town and job. Off the chart chemistry, turmoil and some heat. All combined to make for a read you won't want to put down.
