He was the one in control. He was the one who charmed me.
I feel like this is a standoff, like I'm holding a gun
up to his head and I'm trying to decide
whether or not I should pull the trigger.
You just have to know what level of crazy you're willing to accept from someone you share a bed with.
"I think that the strands of both your future and mine will be forever linked, whether we like it or not. Trauma generally tends to do that to people, for better or for worse."
I know that there are some books that leave you wanting, I just never realized how much until Hearts On Fire was looking so gorgeous on my kindle tablet.
In Heart's Revenge, we are left with Essie walking out on Aiden after a night of passion. With revenge still on Essie's mind and Aiden aware of the broken woman he has fallen for.
Hearts On Fire begins with Essie questioning her plans for revenge for the past 5 years, how can she sleep with or have feelings for the man she wants to destroy. Since the death of her brother Vaughn Essie has been a broken woman, her heartbreak is so apparent and in a few scenes it almost tore me in two.
Aiden, is more than I expected and everything I wanted. Leaving life on the beach to run his family's corporation after the death of his brother and parents. He picked up the pieces that his brother Alex left behind and for 5 yrs. kept a watchful eye on the woman that lost the most important person to her...her brother. Aiden is so honest, patient, loving and dominating when he needed to be. I almost lost it a few times when Aiden would patiently watch while Essie would throw all her hurt and anger at him, it was so freeing yet so heartbreaking.
Hearts On Fire is so perfectly written by Cole Jaimes, I was given everything I expected from this story. Aiden and Essie's tug of war of emotions, revenge plot, heartbreak, forgiveness and finding closure. It also ends with a perfect epilogue that will leave you with a smile and a little toe curling...totally hot scene!
I am just saying and leaving my review with this, there is one character in the story that I would love to read more about and his name is Max, Vaughn and Essie's best friend.
