Ian Hodges (a.k.a. Blaze) has never muttered a truthful word in his existence. He's pompous, arrogant, and never beds the same woman twice. He’s a r

" PRICE CHECK! " Avery I laughed so hard while reading this I nearly peed myself!

Sorry readers I could not start this review without dropping Avery that line. You may not get it, right now, but you will...WHEN YOU BUY THE BOOK!
I received this book as an ARC and in exchange I'm going tell you how incredible this storyline is. Before I proceed, if you have not read the previous books STOP WHERE YOU ARE AND DO NOT PASS GO! Read the previous 4 books then you may come back here read about Fighting th

It feels like I’ve waited years for my man’s story. Now it’s finally here and all I’m complaining about is that it’s over.

I have never wanted to read a book for the first time again like I did with this one. It’s that good.

Ian Hodges is more than meets the eye, not your average bad boy bum. Hell no. He’s a survivor, a warrior, a loyal partner to anyone. I’m so happy he got his HEA. He of all characters deserved it.

Brandi, what can I say, I’m jealous af that she gets to fict

I absolutely adored this book !
Its a first from this author for me but I have to say she has found herself a new fan in me omg 😲 loved it ...
This book can be a standalone as past books have been explained in the start of this book but personally I think I should have read the others first but I will be remeding that asap !
Definitely a five star read absolutely enjoyed the whole book 📚

Fighting the BLAZE Burning Within Her!

This book NEEDS At least 20 STARS!

“I told you that you were locked in a cell, but it was me who was imprisoned. My cold heart had been locked up so goddamn tight, it took your warmth and light to lead me out.”

And that is what Avery Kingston does in this, book four in her Fire and Fury series, Fighting the Blaze. She shares her warmth and light to lead us to the lives of characters we can never forget. She burrows in and keeps us safe, when all hell is breaki

Great story. Blaze gave Scott a run for his money as a fabulous book boyfriend! 😁 I really enjoyed Brandi and Blazes dynamics, opposites attract, ying and yang kinda thing. I liked seeing them both open up and learn from each other. That twist toward the end was fantastic!!! You guys have got to check out this book but start at the first in the series Chasing Fire. These are a great set of characters w/ unique story lines! Must reads. Loved this one as well.❤️

I have been looking forward to Ian (Blazes) story for a long time. Avery brought Ian to the front and center and made him real. He is everything and more. I've had a couple of days to process how good Ian's story is. You understand why he got to be the man he is today. I was blown away with the intensity, heartbreak end angst that was Ian Hodges.
I loved Brandi and everything she went through up until then, you could see tbe vulnerability that is always there.. I loved seeing her let loose with

I could hardly wait for the story of Blaze. But the waiting was well worth it. I already fell in love with Blaze in Scotts and Toris story and I recommend to read these books first.

The story of Blaze and Brandi shows that two people who seemed to have nothing in common can overcome prejudices and assumptions and learn a lot about themselves on the way. The story is about discovering the depths of someones hurt and trying to heal and mend the scars of the past which are well hidden in totally dif

Incredibly Hot and Amazing 🔥🔥🔥🔥

This was an amazingly intense panty melting story! It was so passionate and so full of burning love. I was on fire reading it.

I absolutely loved the storyline and the main characters. The relationship roller coaster ride throughout is so remarkable and well written. I was cheering everyone on. Ian and Brandi have such intense feelings for each other and when they are together it is explosive! 💥

The writing is terrific and pulls you in right from the start. Everyone

I think this is my favorite book of Avery Kingston so far. She just gets better and better! In this one, we finally get to hear Blaze’s story. And I’ve always loved Brandi through the series, so it was absolutely perfect to match the two of them up. I love enemies to friends romances, and this one didn’t disappoint. And the twist at the end was so great. I really loved this book!

I don't give 5-star reviews. 5 is perfect and I'm convinced there is no such thing as perfect. Well, I was wrong. This was perfect! It had absolutely everything required for the ultimate HEA story. First, it had Scott and Tori and we all know how great that is. We had a perfect wedding; one I wish I had attended. Then we have a happy go lucky main man with a sad history which he's had to overcome to get where he is. Next is the high school sweetheart who was still in love. Add in several sad sto ...more

Brandi and Blaze didn’t seem like a couple who would get along very well at first. She was like a goody two shoe girl, prude, a rule follower, straight laced. And Blaze was the bad boy who was always doing something devilish, pushing your buttons, wanting to see how far she would go. No rules at all. The free bird. Love em and leave em. But there was something about Brandi he did like, and she was beautiful, so he was going to see how far he could get with her.

This book was amazing! Enemies to lovers is one of my favorite romance tropes and Avery did an incredible job weaving this love story between bad boy Blaze and good girl Brandi.

If you've read Avery's amazing Fire And Fury Series, then you know Blaze very well! I admit, I didn't see Blaze as much more than comic relief in the previous three books. But when I read his story, I fell for him immediately. Behind all his random hookups, houseboat life, and smartass sense of humor is a truly good guy

Man, Blaze totally won my heart. I loved meeting him earlier in the series and was so glad he got his own book. Blaze was such a fantastic guy...regardless of his reputation, his cockiness, and playboy ways, I could tell that the real Ian was still under there somewhere, even though he never let people see it. I was excited to get underneath all of that stuff to get to the real him. He was so well written and developed as a character that he kept surprising me in the best ways. He made the perfe ...more

Oh my goodness, let me just take a minute and fan myself. I've read the entire Fire and Fury Series and this one for sure takes the cake. I've been waiting to read Blaze's story since we met him in the first book.

Ian Hodges, Blaze, is the bad boy with an even worse past. Because of his heart being obliterated by his wife while he was trying to recover from his military injuries he'd sworn of love. Sex? Oh sex he loved and was good at it. But when he's drunk and makes a bet with

Who says opposites don't attract?? That is just absurd, because let me tell you in this book they definitely attract and the attraction is off the charts. We get Blaze and Brandi's story in this book.

There is so much more to Ian " Blaze" Hodges than meets the eye. You are led to believe he is a beach bum who sits around getting high all the time. That is so far from the truth it isn't funny. He is loyal, trustworthy, and has a heart bigger than most. Yes he has had a very tough few years, but h

Wow what a journey. I feel like I just rode one of Blaze’s waves that took me on a emotional, thrilling and truly awesome ride. This book is such a mixture of sorrow, laughter,love and about two people finding themselves and letting go. Both healing from their pasts Blaze and Brandie take a journey most of us wouldn’t dare to take and come out with something truly special in the end. There is a lot of bumps along the way, but the ride is well worth it. I had a feel this book would be amazing and ...more

I wish I could give this book more than five stars. It is everything I love about romance: imperfect and compelling characters, steamy chemistry, and a dash of humor.
Blaze (Ian) and Brandi visited in the other books of the Fire and Fury series, and while I found them interesting and amusing, I wasn't prepared for how hard I fell for them.

Avery's series is meant to be read in order, but for this one isn't necessary. You won't be confused, nor will it give away much of the other books.

This was one of the most unexpected delights I’ve read in a long time. I say that because I HATE third person and almost didn’t read this because of it. I’m soooooo glad I did. I met the author at a booksigning and she sold me on this one. I even bought the paperback before I read this one. It was easily the most heartwarming book I’ve read in a while. Gritty, sweet, sad, and beautiful all wrapped up in one blazing bow. Bravo Ms. Kingston! ♥️

Avery always leaves me wanting more with every single book she writes. I got so lost in this one I almost missed a flight. This story is amazing and not what I expected at all. The ending......WOW what a surprise. Now to decide who I’m in love with more. Scott or Blaze? 🔥

An absolutely wonderful read! Loved Ian and Brandi! When I started this book I wasn't sure I was going to like it, partly I think because of the Scott/Tori involvement which felt awkward to me (a personal preference, not anything negative about the writers writing, especially since it is a part of a series that I haven't read yet) I kept with it and it completely drew me in once the focus was more on Ian and Brandi. ...more
