Inner Fire was a bit of a surprise read. I expected the typical young adult paranormal, but what I found was an action packed storyline that for the most part, I enjoyed. Told from Corrine’s point of view, she lives with a debilitating ability to produce fire from her emotions, namely anger. Skipping a generation, Corrine’s grandmother is the only person who can sympathize with her, and takes her under her wing to guide and protect her. Living in the middle of nowhere, Corrine has no access to her phone or the internet and pushed to spend time with the handsome Rowan, who helps her grandmother with odd jobs around the house. Within hours, the two form an unusual attraction and Corrine discovers a series of ‘firsts’ with thanks to Rowan’s charm. These two are all over one another like a couple of loved up bunnies, Rowan is slightly older and I felt he used his experience to take advantage of Corrine at times, while hiding a whopper of a secret. Of course she was a willing participant, but when you’re in the middle of nowhere without options, what’s the chances of finding the one?

Corrine’s grandmother is clearly the star of Inner Fire. She’s a no nonsense woman who knows far more than she lets on. I loved her character. She was tough, sassy and a complete surprise. My main issue was not having Corrine’s ‘gift’ described in detail, but there seems to be a sequel on the horizon that I’m hoping will answer all those burning questions. (Psst, see what I did there)

If you’re looking for a read outside of the usual paranormals, give Inner Fire a try. Fast and furious romance, a kick ass nanna and a touch of suspense, it’s was a pretty entertaining read and not a bad start to the series.
