I am so excited to be part of the blog tour for Fire in You (Wait for You #6) by Jennifer L. Armentrout writing as J. Lynn today! I will share my review for this book, there’s a teaser image of the book, a special pre-order campaign and I got to interview Jennifer L. Armentrout!
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.
A feel-good second-chances love story full of hope and heart.
This is the last book in Jennifer’s Wait for You series so I was feeling quite nostalgic reading it. Even though I prefer her YA and NA paranormal books to her other work, I have really enjoyed this series and come to love all the couples – they are like long-lost friends at this stage.
One of the aspects I adored about this book was how much the other couples featured, especially Cam and Avery who are my all time fav couple. But we also got to see everyone else and they are all happily married and with kids or with kids on the way. It gave me tons of warm and cozy feelings to see everyone in such a good place.
I warmed to Jillian pretty much straight away – she has been through so much but she’s a fighter and she’s determined to reclaim the life she always wanted despite the tragedy and trauma of her past. Finally facing up to her legacy, she returns to the Lima Academy only to discover that Brock is back on the scene and there’s no escaping him. He has been the love of her life since she was nine but he has hurt her in the past and she has deliberately kept her distance from him since the fateful night that tore them apart.
Brock has always had a soft spot for Jilly although he acknowledges that he has failed her and let her down. Now, he wants a chance to make that up to her and to prove to her that they truly belong together.
This was quite a slow-burning build up to their relationship but it was really sweet and full of humor and warmth and love. I adored it.
I did feel like it lacked a little depth in terms of plot and that’s the only reason why this is a four-star rather than five-star review, however, I still think it was a great read and a very fitting end to a fantastic series.
When I pick up a JLA book, I always know I’m in for a good time and this reading experience was no different.
Thanks to the author and her publicist for providing a copy of this book in exchange for my honest review. All opinions expressed are my own.

INTERVIEW WITH JENNIFER L. ARMENTROUT
Author Siobhan Davis’s Blog
Let me open by saying how honored I am to interview my favorite author for my blog. I am a MASSIVE fan of Jennifer’s work having read everything she has written, and I’ve lost track of the number of times I’ve reread the Covenant and Lux series. Thank you, Jennifer, for the hours of sheer entertainment value you have given me (and for Aiden St. Delphi – definitely, thanks for him!!)
1. You are a hugely prolific writer, and I know that requires strong discipline—so, I’m curious to know what your writing process/structure is like?
I don’t have a strict writing process or structure, but I don’t usually outline before I begin writing a book. I’ll just come up with an idea and the main characters, then I start writing the first chapter. I write every day and I’m usually watching TV for the background noise while I’m writing.
2. You have inspired my own writing, and I was wondering which authors have inspired you?
3. Fire in You is the last book in the amazing Wait for You series. I loved it, but it was bittersweet when I reached the end knowing that I’m waving goodbye to some of my favorite characters. How do you feel when you reach the end of a series?
I think bittersweet describes my feelings when I reach the end of a series, too. I loved writing the Wait for You series and all of the couples, but I’m also excited to start writing something new.
4. You write the most swoon-worthy book boyfriends, and I love so many of them, but Aiden has a very special place in my heart. Which one of your male characters holds a special place in your heart and why?
I think that all of my male characters hold a special place in my heart for different reasons. It’s a tough choice. In the Wait for You series, I’d probably pick Jase.
5. What do you like to do in your downtime? (Writers around the world screaming “downtime? What the heck is that!”)
It’s true that I don’t have a lot of time outside of writing and events, but I love to garden when I have the opportunity. I’ll also take some time to decorate for the holidays because I love having my house decorated early for Christmas.
6. Have you ever been to Ireland or do you have any plans to come here?
I haven’t been to Ireland, but I would love to visit at some point!
7. What can we expect to see on the shelves from you in 2017?
Till Death – February 28, 2017
The Struggle – March 28, 2017
The Dead List (Spring 2017)
Brave (Summer 2017)
If There’s No Tomorrow (Fall 2017)
Thank you so much for taking the time to speak with me. I can’t wait to read your new stuff and I’m hoping we get to see Daemon, Katy, and the rest of the Lux cast on the big screen soon!
