Fuel for Fire by Julie Ann Walker had me on the edge of my seat from beginning to end. It’s one of those stories that has you reading as fast as you can to get to the end but also don’t want it to ever be over. Dagan and Chelsea are amazing characters. They are so real with each other from pouring out their love intimately to suffering and struggling after Chelsea shares her big bad secret. It was emotional, raw and so riveting.
As for the danger and suspense, Walker does a fabulous job of setting up the scenes and describing them in enough detail to feel like you are living them out with the characters. I think at some point throughout the story I felt anxious, scared, joyful, happy, sad, and a heart so full of love that it was going to burst at the end. It was my kind of story.
The adventure that was getting Chelsea back to America was creative and original. One of the things I love about the BKI books is that they are all so different. It’s not the same story with different characters. Each is unique in its own way and so well written for the characters.
If you have read any of the other BKI books you know that Walker usually has a side story going on and in this one we see more of Christian and Emily. I wasn’t fond of them in the last book because their bickering really got to me, but they each showed a vulnerable side when it came to the other one and I am now looking forward to reading their book.
Fuel for Fire is an incredible romantic suspense story with the perfect blend of action and adventure paired with a refreshing, passionate love story. It might be one of my favorite ones so far!
