[Review] Fire In Her Eyes

Fire in Her Eyes (Young Love, #2)

Spencer and I have been enemies for as long as I can remember. Though it wasn't hard to fall into lust with him. And things seemed to be headed to love before unspeakable things happened to me...

Spencer was supposed to be my rock. My angel. He turned out to be none of those things. What he did hurt more then the tragedy. I don't think I will ever be able to forgive him...

Not that he hasn't tried to win me back over. His new actions leave me wondering if love can really forgive anything?

My name is Harley Maxton and this is my story


I want to start out with this was a great story, even though I did have some issues with it. Well, more like one major issue. The book was too short.  That’s my main complaint. Other than that I was mildly surprised at the goings on of this novel. I mean you see the whole love interest thing coming, ‘cause you can only hate someone so beautiful for so long while ignoring the obvious sexual tension that is there.  Well, well, this book was filled to the brim with sexual tension, complete tragedy, and honest to goddess surprise. It takes a lot to shock me, and let me tell you… there were a few minutes that I was like “Oh god, No…. WHAT!? No way. I can’t…” 

First off, I absolutely loved the characters of Spencer and Harley. I also love the fact that both of those names could totally be used regardless whether you’re a male or female, just saying. From the beginning you get smacked in the face with some shocking news, then Ms. Heath just keeps it right on coming. The whole idea of the character behind Harley was absurdly adorable, as well as Spencer. While both characters have both lost a parent due to unforeseen circumstances to which has mentally scarred them for life, they’ve moved on… cautiously. As they both come home from college on summer break, they get a whopping surprise from their parents. Not only were they neighbors before, but now they’re going to be room-mates. I know right! Whaaat!? The only word I can picture coming out of either one of their mouths is “BALLS.” Although I’m pretty sure that wasn’t said. ;)

So I’m pretty sure I’ve always been partial to red heads, being a semi-red head myself.  I’ve always associated fierceness, carefree, and braveness with red heads, along with some serious sass and just pure awesomeness. Some people say blondes have more fun, I say red heads do. Just be warned, we bite, and we bite hard. That being said, I’m gonna move along to Spencer, after gushing about how much I just adore Harley’s character. Spencer is the epitome of sex. He’s broody, yet completely thoughtful, protective, a total playboy, funny, and just oozes pure testosterone. Yum.  At this point, my book boyfriend list is so long that I’m gonna have to compile them all into one man, that no one could possibly ever live up to the expectations set by myself. If somehow, I met a man that could… well babe – I’d rock his socks off! 

I don’t want to tell you much about the story because I feel like you should read this novel. I thoroughly enjoyed it, and must say that I’m definitely a new fan of Amanda Heath. Even though the book was shorter than I would have liked, it still packs punches like you wouldn’t believe. It’s one of those books that you chastise yourself for letting sit on your shelf for so long not reading it. I actually have another novel by Amanda Heath that a good book friend of mine Tess recommended, (This Beautiful Thing) and now I can’t wait to read it. It’s definitely been moved up on my list. Sadly enough I have looked at it so many times and just picked another book instead. Well, not anymore! I read this book in one sitting, unable to put it down. The tragedy and the love story that goes along with it were simply astonishing and I loved it. To say this is a definite page turner isn’t enough. I HAD to keep reading, because I just had to know what was going to happen next. I was gasping and shocked at so many points in this story that I’m still kind of pissed off at some of the characters. 

Honestly, read this book. You’ll fly right through it and by the end you’re just going to say “Wow. That was truly an amazing read.” I was most certainly left with a book hangover and I’m still thinking about all the horrible things that happened, along with the epic love story that goes along with them. Kudos to Amanda Heath for writing this amazing novel, and I can’t wait to read more from her.
