The first novel in a provocative romance series that will captivate, exhilarate and intoxicate you like no other, perfect for those who loved the bestselling Fifty Shades of Grey but were left wanting more...
It started with a spark...Everything changed when I met Dominic. My heart had just been broken, split into jagged fragments that can jigsaw together to make me look enough like a normal, happy person. Dominic has shown me a kind of abandonment I've never known before. He takes me down a path of pure pleasure, but of pain, too - his love offers me both lightness and dark. And where he leads me, I have no choice but to follow.
Deeply intense and romantic, provocative and sensual, Fire After Dark will take you to a place where love and sex are liberated from their limits. Fans of E. L. James and Sylvia Day will find themselves kept awake late into the night with Fire After Dark...

Look I like a book with developed characters... a good background and some details about both the characters and their surrounding. But really half this book is just details about EVERYTHING!! Name it! I also like a strong female character but this women (girl) is so childish it becomes painful. I understand she went through a heartbreak but she is just so much like a 15 year old the way she handles a romantic situation (she follows him when he goes on his date). It is advertised as a book like 50 shades of grey but really it is NOT!
Less detail about every little thing... make the female character a lot stronger!
Which came first... the books or the glasses?
I've read reviews where some people say if you don't finish a book you shouldn't review it. I can understand that. Most of the time I don't review books I don't finish. I'm reviewing this one as a heads up. I did the first 2 or 3 chapters. This book has a lot of filler. The author talks about artwork, what the character did that day (walking around, buying groceries, etc.), what she cooked for dinner, she keeps re-hashing the break-up between the female character and her ex-boyfriend. I got to the point where I said ok, let's get on with the real story. I gave the author some time. I went on Amazon and read reviews and saw others also felt there was lots of filler. They did say the book picks up about 50% in. I was not willing to wait that long. BTW -- the narrator is very good.
I've always been a avid reader so now I'm a avid listener. I prefer the paranormal genre but I do like to switch things up. It's boring if you don't have variety. Of course I do love the romance and the hotter the better. Also, you can't beat a good thriller filled with suspense and a ending you can't even guess at until the very end.
This cannot be compared to FSOG. It has nowhere near the chemistry and passion FSOG contains. This has a tepid story/plot. It takes awhile for the "passion" to build and it's not that hot of a passion to me, not compared to other books out there. I'd much rather have the "hotness" of The Stark Trilogy or The Blackstone Affair. This cannot compare to books like that. So if your looking for a hot romance like the books I mentioned earlier your not going to find it here. This is a watered down version in my opinion. Definately not worth a credit.
I really enjoy the world of books! Narration just add layers to that world... don't u think? :)
I fell asleep reading this and tried to pick back up...couldn't and man! I just got really really bored. I hate when stories are compared to 50 and they are so not like 50 at all. Plus this is like a Regency romance, dom/sub thing... NOt like 50 at all.
Maybe a sale, save your credit.
"Great Bedtime Listening"
This was the first book I have listened too I did not know what to expect. The story kept me listening and 5 hours passed in to evenings. Looking forward to many Unst winter nights when the Atlantic storms rage outside listening to great stories.
This young woman is growing in confidence and belief of her own sexuality and the confidence. of a grown woman.
need to hear part two
Not a bad read but far too predictable and far too similar to 50 Shades. Bandwagon springs to mind
I have read fifty shades book and crossfire books, I thought it was going to been the same all over again.
But I was wrong I real enjoy this book, a girl found her self one min in her family home moved to London to house sit and found her self.
Can not wait for next book
