I love the addicted series. I love every.single.character. Rose and Connor are my favorites. I love the love that they have for each other. I loved 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 what ever 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. 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.
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.
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 loved reading her inner monologue. I loved reading her struggles and the sacrifices she makes for her family and especially for Jane. Just like Connor, we will see Rose, opened, exposed, 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.
That 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.
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.
Who was your favorite character and why?
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.
Which scene was your favorite?
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.
Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?
