From the # 1 New York Times and International bestselling author comes a richly moving story about heartbreak and guilt, second chances and hope. Full of familiar, fan-favorite characters and no two people more deserving of a happy ending, Fire In You will burn bright beyond the last page…

Jillian Lima’s whole world was destroyed in a span of a few hours. The same night her childhood love, Brock ‘the Beast’ Mitchell, broke her heart, her life was irrevocably altered by the hand of a stranger with a gun.  It takes six years to slowly glue together the shattered pieces of her life, but Jillian is finally ready to stop existing in a past full of pain and regret. She takes a job at her father’s martial arts Academy and she’s going out on her first date since a failed relationship that was more yuck than yum. Jillian is determined to start living.

She just never expected Brock to be a part of her life again. But he’s firmly back in her life before she knows it, and not only is he older, he’s impossibly more handsome, more teasing and more everything. And when he sees Jillian, he’s no longer capable of thinking of her as the little girl who was his shadow growing up or the daughter of the man who gave him a second chance at life. He sees the woman who’d always been there for him, the one person who believed in him no matter what.

Brock knows she’s the one he should’ve made his, and what begins as a tentative friendship quickly turns to red-hot chemistry that sparks a flame that burns brighter than lust. Falling for Brock again risks more than her heart, because when the sorrow-filled and guilt-ridden past resurfaces, and a web of lies threatens to rip them apart, the fallout could lay waste to everything they’ve fought to build together, and destroy the dreams of those they care most about.

Jennifer Armentrout does it again! This story is just the ending I've been waiting for. Not only does it wrap up the Wait for You series perfectly, it's the perfect second chance story for both Brock and Jillian. I loved getting to know Brock, and Jillian as much as I loved catching up with the previous characters from this series. 
Armentrout is queen of writing slow burning romances, snark, wit, and plenty of sizzle. There's never a dull moment in this story. 

History has a funny way of repeating itself. When it comes to Brock and Jillian, there's a lot of history. Not only were these two inseparable, they were each other's everything. Friends, support, and so much more. I loved that these two get a second chance, though it's not going to be easy. I love the way these rekindle their friendship, which leads into so much more. Their chemistry is hot, and their friendship/relationship is something so sweet and swoon worthy. There's a lot that happened between these two, and a lot that's happened since they last saw each other. Now ixx years later, it's not a fluke that Brock is back in life, and this time to stay. 

There's no denying that Jillian and Brock have chemistry. Boy do they have it. I loved that Jillian didn't rush into anything, even though it's obvious that Brock is the one that gets her all hot and bothered, and in a good way. She's guarded, and learning to let go, and live her life. I loved that for all the chasing Jillian used to when it came to Brock, it was his turn to chase. My word, this man knows what he wants, and he will do everything he can to get it. I loved that he not only proved to Jillian he meant everything he said, he allows her the time she needs, and helps her not only live again, but proves to her he is exactly what she's always wanted. 

Talk about a slow burning, sizzling romance. While the chemistry is immediate, the romance is drawn out, and it's oh so hot. I loved that. During this time Armentrout gives us more story, and more of the history between these two characters. It's perfectly paced. I love that Brock was confident, determined to not only win Jillian over, but prove to her he's the man she's always loved. I love the way he romances her. Jillian, for all she's been through, is incredibly tough, and doesn't rush into anything. Over the course of Brock romancing her, she gains this strength and confidence she's hidden over the past six years. I loved seeing grow into the women Brock has always seen. 

Brock and Jillian both have an inner fire, and strength that they've always seen in each other, but now they start to see it for themselves. I loved seeing how both of these characters have grown. They are both such strong characters, and together they're even stronger. I love that the growth and changes they make are something they both do on their own. It just makes it so much sweeter that the end result is what it is... a happy ending. 

Brock and Jillian's story is just as well written as the rest of the characters in this series. This book isn't just a reunion for Brock and Jillian, it's one that fans of the series will love, as they get to see all the characters back together again, and how they're all doing. I loved seeing all of them back together again, and how they're all doing. If you're a fan of the Wait For You series, you need to pick this book up! Like each of the books in the series, I love how it is it's own story, while also complimenting the previous books in the series.

This was just the book I needed. It made me sigh, laugh, and love every moment I spent with Brock and Jillian. If you're a fan of happy endings, pick up this book!
