PJ's (Polly Jayne) life changes in an instant when she finds that she is the holder of a 25 million dollar lottery ticket. So instead of catching a plane to China for work after finding her fiancé in bed with her best friend, PJ buys a ticket to London leaving everything and everyone behind to start new. PJ's new friend, India, convinces her to join a local BDSM club. From there PJ's new life becomes more (and less) than she bargained for when she meets Luke Monroe.
The second book, Fire in the Blood, amps up the action as Luke becomes completely unhinged and Mika and Elliot (PJ's seemingly gay neighbors) start to make unexpected advances. I was very impressed with Ms. Freeman's ability to take the villain (Luke) and make him somewhat sympathetic. He really doesn't seem to understand just how delusional he becomes. Somewhere along the line his wiring got crossed and he believes what he feels is love when it is anything but. PJ is a little harder to understand. While Ms. Freeman portrays her as someone who spent her whole life just wanting someone to love her, PJ doesn't ever seem to take anything bad that has happened in her past and apply that knowledge to what is happening to her in the present. This second book has a good amount of intrigue as who exactly Elliot and Mike are as well as what Luke will do to ensure Lily remains his.
This second book is considerably more in-depth in showing Luke's sadism. Just to be forewarned.
"He chanted those words again and again until they calmed him. She loved him, loved him ... loved him. And she would prove it."
I laughed after reading Fire in the Blood and checking out some of the reviews, because it seems we all feel the same way...this book is one heck of a roller coaster ride. Lily Freeman has created such a unique set of characters, each having such a different personality that the dynamics of each relationship flows like one would in real life. I liked PJ previously, but I love her now, I felt like she really came into her own in this novel. While she continues to be timid in several ways, her drive to take ownership of her life was such a good thing to read. Then there's Luke, the man you like, but know is so wrong for you. I couldn't have predicted the twists he would bring into this book. Elliot and Mika, those two are absolutely now book boyfriend material. Their relationship together and with PJ is so well written that I cannot pinpoint when I went from thinking of them as friendly neighbors to sexy neighbors. Of course, my lust is directed towards the hardened Elliot, who we get to really know when we read from his POV. Lily really allows the reader to get into the mind of each character, from the downfall of Luke to the emotional uncovering of Elliot. I think the alternating POVs were really what made this book a complete success for me, they are so well done.
"You've got that fire in the blood, all that strength and passion. You're not like other people and that's why we adore you."
Fire in the Blood is a suspenseful, angst-filled journey and this time the smut takes a turn for the dark. This one was so much more of an emotional read for me and I loved the twists that the story took. The erotic scenes were incredible (especially the fantasy scene), the dark scenes were brutal, and the moments in between created a story line out of a movie. If you are looking for a darker romance novel with BDSM, The Red Series is one I cannot recommend enough. It's unpredictable, it's attention grabbing, and it's incredibly well done. I am counting down the days to December for To Catch a Flame.
Fire In The Blood is the second book in Lily Freeman's Red Series. You must read A Little Band Of Red before Fire In The Blood.
PJ walked away from her old life eight weeks ago to start a new life in London. She has a new home, amazing neighbors, new friends and a Master. Luke the Master she met at a BDSM Club. The Master who has lied to her about wanting a real connection and not all the pain that he like to dole out. He's pushing PJ, trying to prove to her she can handle mor pain than she thinks. He's the sadist and she's his masochist in his mind. He will stop at nothing and refuses to lose PJ. PJ though can't handle Luke and his lies and mind games. With the help of her neighbors, Mika and Elliot, PJ once again finds herself in a place of failure facing why she's not good enough for someone. PJ already knows love can hurt, and she thought she know how much, but nothing could have prepared her for what's about to come.
This book is absolutely a dark and twisted tale at times. PJ found her strength and finally woke to realize what everyone had been warning her about snd Luke is slowly losing his mind. To say Luke is terrifying to me is an understatement. He's a character I've hated since the first time he pushed PJ in A Little Band Of Red.. He absolutely is down right terrifying to me and my poor heart was in my throat a lot of the time in this book. PJ's neighbors are some of the main characters in this book and I love them. I'm glad we got to know more abut them and I can't wait to see what happens between them and PJ. Throw in the story of PJ's best fiend Indy and who is trying to destroy her life and you have one interesting read.
Be forewarned, this is the second book in a series of three. Do not expect your questions answered. I still couldn't give this book five stars for the same reason as I couldn't A Thin Red Line. While there aren't as many charters to keep up with in this book there is still a lot happening. The way the book switches from one characters thoughts to another with no indication it is happening has you back tracking to make sure your still with the thoughts you thought you were reading and I knew to pay super close attention. A little line or symbol before switching, anything to indicate something different is happening, would make a huge difference for a reader. I'm dying to know though how this series concludes in To Catch A Flame. December needs to hurry up so I can find out how this all gets settled.
