Playing with Fyre grabbed me from the first page and kept me captured until the end.
Professor Fyre is teaching art to students who have been through something traumatic or are going through some crisis. He is teaching them to share what they are feeling through different art mediums and expressions. Charlotte is in his class, but she is stuck in her past.
I was so mesmerized by the story that I read it in one sitting, I couldn't put it down!

A mix of taboo, dark, stalker and lust make it a thrilling suspenseful read.

While reading the book he had my mind all over the place.
Is he the hero or the danger?
Is he the healer or the predator?

Playing With Fyre by Logan Fox is the dark, disturbing story of obsession, despair, fear, escape, surrender, and recovery (maybe?). Whatever it is….it is incredibly addictive, creepy, and mesmerizing….It follows Fyre and Charlotte. He’s a therapist and she’s in his class. But, there are things she doesn’t know…dark things…and things she is trying to escape…that no one knows.

OMG!!!!! This story was so freaking good!!!!! I STILL don’t really know anything about these two and their relationship.

Fyre will burn you. Fyre will save you.

The way Professor Fyre behaves is totally hot, irresistable, like a force of nature. I absolutely agree with what he did in those 7hrs. I'm hoping Charlotte will agree when she calms down.
Gideon Fyre reminded me a lot of Dexter (books not the watered down TV series)
I must read more of this.

I received a free copy of this book via Booksprout and am voluntarily leaving a review.

OMG, blown away by this deeply dark taboo but oh so compelling page turner...
I swear my pulse elevated & I got a frontal lobe tension headache though I felt no stress or anxiety. I'm not one to detail the story itself but if you like edgy stories that you can't put down for a second & it takes you on a journey that is far away from your "normal" comfort zone then this is for you. Looking forward to book 2. I received an arc & this is my honest & voluntary review.

This is a fast-paced novella with loads of drama, suspense and steam. Gideon is a therapy professor and Charlotte is his student. Soon sparks are flying and lines are crossed. Intense, dark and steamy read with great characters and an entertaining story. I was hooked from beginning to end. I loved it!

The words use and overall review shouldn’t reflect personally on the author or any other of her series and books.

3.5 stars

I love age gap books, I'm very specific on what I look in that trope, Simply because it's my favorite. So I couldn't wait to read this, this author has a series which is co-writing with another author which also was age gap and boy did I love that book. On this book we also get an alpha male and a broken female lead, the story was full of excitement it will grasp you un

Logan Fox is an amazing writer whose stories are dipped in darkness.



Playing with fyre, is a stalker romance. It has blood, violence and drug use.

Gideon Fyre is a psychologist and art therapist for trauma victims. He has his own mystery hidden in past.

Charlotte Ash, is a young brave trauma survivor who has captured fire's attention and made her the object of his uncontrolled obsession.

I'm always down for a dark story as I'm totally dark & twisty, but I just didn't know until I knew with Playing with Frye. If you're looking for some sweet romance, well, you're out of luck because this is about darkness & obsession at its very finest. Professor Fyre teaches art therapy, but things take a big turn when Charlotte ends up in his class. She's totally stuck in her past, and OMG I wish I could tell you but I can't so I won't. He becomes fixated on her, and ends up a very determined s ...more

Logan Fox has done it again, and brought us another dark and twisted romance shrouded in mystery and violence. Although 'Playing with Fyre' is a short novella, there is so much going on and so much to unpack. It delves deep into the lives of Charlotte and Gideon, who are both severely damaged and broken, and who are brought together by a relationship just as messed up, intense, toxic and confused as they are. But could they be each other's redemption and heal from their past traumas together?

This is the first book in the Fyre & Ashes series, so be prepared for a cliffhanger!!

Charlotte Ash is in an Art Therapy class that Professor Gideon Fyre teaches and she might just have a little crush on him. Of course the whole reason she's in this class is due to a violent, traumatic experience she survived and she is probably not truly fit for any kind of relationship right now.

This first book in this Fyre and Ashes series is dark and slightly disturbing. It reminds me in part of the Blood for Blood series and that was awesome.
The story is well crafted and over time we start to see the depth of our two main characters. Gideon Fyre is a college professor, however he is actually so much more and Charlotte has his attention. Charlotte Ash is the victim of an abusive crime and the after effects of that trauma haunt her daily. The story starts to gradually unfold as the boo

The story of Charlotte Ash and Professor Fyre is a bit twisted.
Charlotte suffered a kidnapping years ago where she suffered for days at the hands of her kidnapper and the aftermath still lasts today, so her counselor advised her on Fyre’s class.
Fyre develops an insane obsession with her, to such an extent that he follows her home, spies on her, break in her apartment and even ends up touching her while she is sleeping and having sex with her in the classroom.

Gideon and Charlotte are such a perfectly wrong pairing. She’s a young woman trying to recover from a traumatic experience. He is the older Professor running her art therapy class. He has his own dark secrets, one of which is his obsession with Charlotte.

Hailing from a notoriously sunny South Africa, Logan Fox writes deliciously dark and twisted romance.

Her books feature gruff, grumpy alphas that, although broken, can almost always redeem themselves to their feisty heroines. Her couples have enough chemistry to fog up an ice rink, and her stories the kind of the grit and grime she loves reading herself.
