Games of Fire by Airicka Phoenix
Sophie has enough problems in her life without Spencer turning her blood to fire, without his eyes freezing and burning her, without his hatred of her. Since his migration into the house
next to hers, Sophia Valdez isn’t sure whether she wants to toss him under a bus or kiss that smirking mouth of his. But even as the temperature rises around them, leaping flames of passion, want and desire,everything either has ever known will be shattered by the lurking shadow hounding their every step, wanting revenge.
Spencer Rowth moves to the sleepy town of River Port with his mother and twelve year old sister, Suzy, to escape a deceitful father, an unfaithful girlfriend and a life crumbling much too fast for him to grapple onto only to be smacked upside the head by the last thing he wanted again. Sophie was everything he refused to want. Her temper, her wit, her laugh, her smile, the way her entire body goes up in flames under his hands are things he would rather slam a lid on and forget. Instead, he finds himself falling for the smart-mouth next door. But how long will he have before the evil chasing them catches up? How long before the very thing he never wanted becomes his only thread to sanity? And who is after them? What do they want and why do they want Spencer and Sophie dead?
This book to me was a 5 out of 5 stars. I will say looking at the cover for some reason I thought it was a paranormal book but it’s not in any way. Lol. Shame on me for not knowing. 🙂 But have to admit the cover is awesome.
Sophie is your normal teenager. Loving parents and great friends. She pushes her parents limits threw the book like any normal teen. I love Sophie. I love her personality and how she struggles with what to do about Spencer.
Spencer is a gorgeous teen that has to move next door to Sophie with his mom due to his parents getting divorced. The first encounter between him and Sophie was awesome and had me falling in love with him. Love when books have a smart ass. 🙂
There are the Best friends. Jessie who is the emotion one and Lauren the level headed, smart lipped, and feisty one.
Then theirs Joe which I have to admit I didn’t care for from the start. You just have to read the book to get this one though.
This book was paced perfectly. Everything fell into place and kept the book going smoothly. I loved watching Spencer’s struggles and the love that bloomed between the two. This book had my nerves on high alert and at the end I think my nerves were shot. I loved everything about this book and it is now a favorite of mine. Definitely recommend this book.
A couple of my favorite parts…
1 – “He apparently forgot to rinse the shampoo from his hair so he’s taking a quick shower.”
*I laughed so hard at this part. 🙂
2- “You don’t tell a guy you love him and then apologize, witch! Do you mean it?”
