Of course!! I always rec KB's works to my friends, be it audio book or ebook, even paperbacks. To say that I love this series is probably an understatment. I am addicted to these characters, even obsessed by them and I want my friends to also feel and know how I feel about them.
THERE IS NOTHING LIKE THESE BOOKS! I've been reading for years and nothing compares!! These books are one of a kind, so unique and one need to experience them not just read them to know what I'm talking about!
Ahhh the closet scene always come to mind whenever I think of FTF. That scene is so raw, so emotional, to heartbreaking, so real. Two strong characters that even an apocalypse will never get them down, but that scene just feel so human!
The Coballoway closet scene and the Calloway sisters dock scene. And of course, the last scene in the book where they were saying goodbye. Ugh, I get teary eyed whenever I think of those scenes!!
This is by far the best series I've come across with! Everybody needs to read this series bec it's not only about romance, it's so much more!!
This book, the entire series, is just wonderful. The non-straight (? I don't know how to refer to it precisely since said character prefers no labels) representation was done so well, plus the feminism and, yes, finally seeing such a hated character get what was long coming was so satisfying.
I can't really think of one? This book, and its great cast of characters, is so unique. This series has taken my heart.
Really great! I loved Connor's and Rose's voices.
IT MADE ME FEEL EVERYTHING. Krista and Becca never disappoint me. All their books are just filled with so much emotion, with such a great balance of drama and humor. It's amazing.
The audio edition is as good as the print version.
I would compare it to Hothouse Flower; it is just as good. Well read and totally animated.
No I haven't.
Hot and cold and totally engaging.
I loved how this actors read the book. It kept me totally engaged.
This book is part of a series and is not a standalone. If you are a fan of the series, than this book is a must.
In this book we get to learn about Connor's teenage years; we also learn a bit of his sexual escapes while he attended the all boys school. Like most of the book there is drama in this book as characters from the past make an appearance and cause havoc into their happiness.
What I loved about this book is that not only do we learn more about Rose and Conner's married life, but we also encounter the rest of the gang and see what they have been up to. We also get glimpses into want is to come with Daisy and Ryke.
This book has no cliffy and and awesome HEA. Awesome book that does not disappoint.
I would listen to Fuel the Fire again, in fact when I finished listening to it, I wanted to start it all over. I can't tell you how much I love this series, the spin-off series and this book. It guts you, makes you question life and appreciate what you have.
My favorite character is my book husband, Connor. I LOVE LOVE LOVE him. I love him so much my real life husband knows how much I love Connor. Connor is the EPIC Hero I crave and lust after when I listen/read a book. He's caring, strong, arrogant, smart and most of all, he LOVES his family and wife. Gah, who doesn't want that?
Not only do I love Connor, but I love Rose too. It always makes the book better if I love the Hero and Heroine equally. I feel like I can relate to Rose on so many levels. I love how she can be cold, but warm at the same time. I love seeing the different sides of her in Fuel the Fire and yes I cried during the dark parts. I couldn't get enough.
So many scenes are my favorite scenes. I love the scenes between Rose and Connor. The ones that are deep, important and reflects the love they have for each other. I love that Connor and Rose are willing to sacrifice everything for each other.
If you have already read the book, then all I'm going to say is Rose + Fur Coat = ME BALLING MY EYES OUT. If you haven't read the book, I'm not giving anything away. I PROMISE! So don't get mad at me. There are other scenes that moved me too. The ones where it showed Connor really exposed and raw. Those gutted me. Even the beginning starts out with a bang with some down and down action (you will get it once you start it)
Full Book Review:
6 (Best Book Ever) Stars
I love the addicted series. I love every.single.character. Rose and Connor are my favorites though. I love the love that they have for each other. I love Kiss the Sky and when I realized the authors wrote another book, well … you can see how happy that made me.
Fuel the Fire is everything you want for Rose and Connor. There was heart-ache, redemption, drama, pain and of course…. LOVE. After I finished reading Fuel the Fire, I was shaking with emotions. I cried, laugh and smiled.
Fuel the Fire picks up right after Addicted After All. You do not need to read the Addicted series, but I highly suggest you do. There is going to be a time gap if you don’t. Connor, Rose, Lily, Lo, Daisy and Ryke all live in the house together. The media is kicked up a notch and it seems that the gang is in the lime-light more than they want to be.
There’s a lot of drama that happens in the book. Connor and Rose approach the subject of having more children. Connor wants eight babies (he has stated this in previous books), but Rose is cautious. She doesn’t know if she wants to put her children in the public eye. Because whatever they do will be captured on camera.
Throughout the book we get a deeper look into who Connor and Rose are as individuals and as husband and wife. The thing that I ENJOYED so much is reading Connor. I’ve always been intrigued with him. I find his personality addictive and the perfect book boyfriend.. well now book husband! I loved reading about his past and how much Connor is willing to do to protect his family. He’s changed and grown so much since the previous books and it’s so nice to see him so exposed and raw.
“Connor Cobalt is as classy as he is conceited. Both attract me. Both annoy me. I’m a paradox. And maybe that’s why he loves me.”
“We dated. We married. We had a baby. Together, we’re a face of nature to be reckoned with. That’s not my hubris speaking. It’s just the truth.”
I love Rose. She’s known as the cold sister, but seeing her interact with Jane is just so refreshing. We see a warmer side to Rose and I love reading her inner monologue. I love reading her struggles and the sacrifices she makes for her family and especially for Jane. Just like Connor, we will see Rose, open, expose, and raw. It’s really heart-wrenching to read, but beautiful at the same time.
I seriously cried many times in this book. It will hit you in the gut. I wouldn’t have it any other way.
“Love. It meant nothing to him. Now it’s guiding his choices”
“I need you to keep looking at me like you’re going to burn a hole through my heart, and I need you to tell me that you love the real me. Every day, I need you Rose.”
I’ve referenced this many times, but I’ll say it again. What I enjoy most about these books is the love the two main characters have each other. It’s not an “against each other love” but “against the world” kind of love. It’s Connor and Rose verse the world and that is the stuff I crave for in books. That is the stuff that makes my heart go swoon, my eyes light up and gives my arms goose bumps.
This is pure-perfection.
“I purposefully spent two hours with a girl who wore passion like a dress made of diamonds and hair made of flames. Every day of my life, I am enamored. Every day of my life, I am bewitched. And every day of my life, I spend it with her.”
“So long as I may be living, I live with you”
“I’m always whomever or what ever people need me to be… but you were the only one who needed me to be me”
The story is beautifully written, I was seriously highlighting half the book. I really don’t know how Krista and Becca do it. They are like romantic geniuses.
If you love this series, if you love Connor and Rose or if you just like to read in general, you need to read Fuel the Fire.
Something about yourself.
Cannot say enough great things about about this book and this series as a whole. There is none of the canned formula you get from most books. (You know 50% mark sex 90 percent the breakup and then tada HEA) There are no slow parts. I recommend this book to every twentysomething I know. The characters are abso lovable. I just want to gush about the whole series. I will defo buy every book these two write. They could make a daily to-do list funny, earthy, dramatic and you will do your chores pronto. I thought the narrators did well but it wasn't perfect.
I have recommended this series to all by book reading/audiboook listening friends. This series was one of the first to get me into audiobooks and reading in general.
Connor Cobalt, he is so wonderful.
Any banter with Connor and Rose...Coballoway all the way!!!
This book made me both laugh and cry.
I love this series!
This is my favorite couple. There are so many laugh-out-loud moments, and I absolutely love this book. I cannot wait for the next one. This is one of my favorite series.
The stories and characters are well developed in this series and in the "addicted" series. The authors have a reading order out there to read both series in tandem. I'm so disappointed to be on the last book now. I haven't stopped reading since I picked up the first one in the series (note- this is not the first one - I believe it was "addicted to you". The narrations were great- told from multiple POVs throughout the series. Love it!!!!!!
Close to end of the book when the family comes together for Jane's party. Love the toast Lo and Lil give and Rose's words to this part of the story.
There is so many parts I can think of. Too many.
The end, when Lil and Daisy cry because Rose is moving and when all the sisters get together when they find out Daisy may not be able to have kids and when Connor's secret comes out. This book showed a different side to conner.
Can't get enough of this Series. Would love more books about these characters.
No, unfortunately not. It's not that the audio isn't good? It's great! I love the way Rose is narrated by the brilliant Therese Plummer, but there were some parts that I could tell were re-recorded. This books is huge huge HUGE! And I usually don't notice these things but there were some technical issues that I picked up on. But it doesn't take away from the book at all, because this book is simply brilliant.
THERE ARE SO MANY HOW DO I CHOOSE????? The ending gives me chills and tears every time. It's so great and I'm in total awe still how good Krista and Becca are at their endings (and everything inbetween:))
I love Therese Plummer as Rose. She's such a powerhouse and so sharp and amazing as Rose. I love it! Mark Boyett was new to me before this series and while I had problems in Kiss the Sky (they're very personal issues about people whispering in my ear) then they weren't an issue in this book, because so much less of this and I felt like Mark truly embodied Connor's calm, confident nature.
Yes, of course! I plan on listening to this multiple times and hopefully I'll manage to do a record and finish a book in one sitting :P
So much love for this book and series. I can't rec them enough! Every fan of New Adult should read these ASAP!
