Xavier has a past that continues to haunt him. Lila is sensible and is willing to put Xavier's past behind them, even though she receives several warnings about Xavier. Gigi is the scorned, delusional woman who can't let Xavier go. Gigi goes to great lengths to destroy Xavier and Lila's relationship.
"Lila, Lila full of fire."
Lila is strong, sensible and fierce. She is able to move past her emotions and find the truth, until the truth smacks her right in the face. Even after she made an unexpected discovery she doesn't allow herself to wallow too long in self pity. It's very refreshing to read a book where from the start the lead woman is strong and self reliant. Lila pushed away her doubts and accepted Xavier at face value. In the end it's up to Lila to open herself up to be willing to trust in the truth.
I was fortunate to receive a complimentary copy of this book and liked it so much, I purchased a copy for my keeper library.
I am the kind of reader where if I am not interested in a book within the first chapter I can't finish it. Full of Fire had me hooked within the first couple of pages. I fell in love with the main character and how relatable she is and with the story's symbolism. I love when I get lost in good story and I found myself loving Lila and her unique romance with Xavier more and more with each page turn. One of my favorite scenes in the book was how the main characters met, having been to the club scene in Vegas myself, the author gives a perfect depiction of the night life in Sin City.
If you want a quick, fun read...this is the book for you! Sequel now please!!! I must know more about Lila and Xavier!

Lila the female lead lives with her best friend Jessica they're both college students. Lila is not very active in the social scene on campus, in fact she's a rather closed off girl an introvert. Lila works at a beauty salon, it's her birthday, a customer invites her to Townsends nightclub as her guest, Lila doesn't really go to clubs but Townsends is very exclusive so she accepts the invite knowing her friend Jessica will want to go. When she and Jessica arrive Lila spots Gigi who invited her dancing in a cage. Later she joins them they have champagne and it's here Lila first meets Xavier Townsend the tall handsome and sexy club owner. It's later through Gigi that Xavier asks Lila on a date. It's not long before Lila is falling for Xavier, although having been warned by Gigi and someone else that Xavier is a man whore she can't help how she feels, but she does have her doubts about him.
Only time will tell if he's going to break her heart.
I was hoping to like this more than I did, it's very tame compared to other romances I read but that wasn't the problem. My dislike was focused on the two lead characters. First Lila she's sarky, judgemental and rather unsympathetic. Xavier while he is portrayed as a sweet sexy guy, his actions belied that, for instance, what man asks his ex wife Gigi whom he probably knows is still hung up on him to set up a date with another woman namely Lila, all I can say is yuck. Secondly he doesn't tell Lila that Gigi is his ex wife or that their marriage ended because he cheated. That right there was a black mark against him. Later in the story he takes a drunk ex girlfriend back to his flat to look after her, he lets her stay the night, the next morning Lila discovers that when she arrives to find this woman dressed only in Xavier's shirt. What made me laugh was Xavier thinking that Lila would find this okay. I was hoping she'd give him his marching orders, and while I didn't agree with all of Gigi's actions the way she was made out to be the villainess of the piece was a bit much IMO. For me she was the victim not Xavier, even if she behaved badly, she needed help.
As to the remaining characters they were okay, except Lila's best friend Jessica was annoying with her constant nosiness and interrogating Lila.
This book was a change of pace for me and for a change I liked it.
While Lila may be at college she's not living the typical college life, far from it in fact she's not a social butterfly she doesn't feel happy in crowds she's happy on her own with her camera. She lives off campus with her best friend Jessica who is a kindred spirit. Lila is content viewing life through her camera lens and while at times if she's totally honest with herself she maybe wishes for more she's more or less happy until on a night out she meets Xavier. The attraction is immediate which is surprising in itself because Lila doesn't ever really feel attracted to men but Xavier is gorgeous with the most amazing green eyes and it's hits her like a bolt.
Xavier is also attracted to Lila but he has a reputation as a playboy, does he see Lila as a brief fling or is he looking for more, could he be a changed man or is he just pretending?
We get two for one as Jessica also meets someone, it's a lovely read, it's well written and the characters are flawed which I liked after all no one's perfect, I loved that the beautiful, rich and successful Xavier can also be unsure and vulnerable at times but then we find out about this past and it takes some of the shine away. We discover that he wasn't always very nice and while he may be different with Lila it doesn't excuse how he was before.
It's a gentle read full of interesting characters, friendships and families. I loved April and I wanted more I was actually upset when the book ended.
I wasn't sure about moving on to 'Full of Fury' Gigi's book but I've decided to give it a go since its on KU and it's a novella, only 83 pages long.
Why wasn't I sure?
You'll understand as soon as you read this book.
I will definitely read the next offering.
