I have been a fan of this Fierce series for awhile now, and I was so excited when I was offered the opportunity to read an advanced copy of Flame in return for my honest opinion. Well here goes!!! The beginning made me smile a lot at the release of Jessie, everything that happened in the first book led us up to this very special day. Seeing how alike the brothers are is quite amusing but not unexpected I must say. I did get very upset with Autumn in the beginning though, I felt like on one hand she was so accepting of how the boys lived and yet when Hunter shows his true side she became very judgmental and overreacted to certain things that happen. When her best friend ends up having something terrible happen it made me so mad on her behalf. Poor Hunter and his learning ability bring tears to my eyes on one particular scene and just makes me love him all the more. Fair warning the sexual scenes in this book are very steamy so be prepared. Overall I would rate this book in at four stars and say that Clarissa Wild has done it again!!!
