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.

Mary’s 5 Star Review

I hate to see a series come to an end, especially one that I was invested in. Each book in the Wait For You Series was unique, emotional, and clever. After reading Fire In You I can honestly say it delivered all those things, and more. I enjoyed experiencing everything coming full circle for all the characters, and also getting to know one’s that intrigued me in the other books. Brock and Jillian were easy to fall in love with, and the story had me anxiously swiping my pages as immersed myself into their world.

We first meet Brock in Stay With Me. He’s the super talented MMA fighter that everyone loves. Jillian is introduced in Dream Of You. Fast forward to the present and learn that these two have a past, although Brock is much older, Jillian has carried a flame for him. He was her fathers prized fighter, and part of the family. That never made a difference to Jillian she cared for Brock from the first time she met him. 

Jillian has experienced a horrific tragedy that have lead to her distancing herself from him. Both have made a life for themselves, and now they are thrown together as she moves back home after being away fro years. It doesn’t take much to know that when these two reconnect that everything from their past will slowly unravel showing us, that some things can not be ignored.

Life in Martinsburg gets interesting, fast. The romance between these two start to spark, and before we know it they are set a flame. I could feel the pull between Brock and Jillian, and there was just so many emotions being thrown through the pages of this book. My heart willingly took it all in, because missing the beauty that unfolded would be unfortunate.

A pretty perfect ending to a phenomenal series. If you are a fan of Jennifer’s you will certainly not be disappointed. Fire In You will stay with you long after you have finished.

Mary’s Interview With Brock “The Beast” Mitchell

If you weren’t a MMA fighter or in the business, what would you have done as a profession?  

 I think I would’ve gone into law enforcement.

Did you have role model growing up? 

That’s an easy one. My role model was Andrew Lima.

How do you feel about your life right now? Is there anything you would want to change?   

I love where I am right now, but I wish I had gone after Jillian sooner.

Describe your perfect day? Who would you want to spend it with and why? 

My perfect day would always be spent with Jillian. It doesn’t matter what we are doing together. 

What advice would you give to your future self?

I would tell my future self to enjoy this minute or even this second.
