Review: Games Of Fire by Airicka Phoenix

5 Stars
Sophie has enough problems in her life without Spencer turning her blood to fire, without his eyes freezing and burning her, without his hatred for her. Since his migration into the house next to hers, Sophia Valdez isn't sure whether she wants toss him under a bus or kiss that smirking mouth of his. But even as the temperature rises around them, leaping flames of passion, want and desire, everything either has ever known will be shattered by the lurking shadow hounding their every step, wanting revenge.

Spencer Rowth moves to the sleepy town of River Port with his mother and twelve year old sister, Suzy, to escape a deceitful father, an unfaithful girlfriend and a life crumbling much too fast for him to grapple onto only to be smacked upside the head by the last thing he wanted again. Sophie was everything he refused to want. Her temper, her wit, her laugh, her smile, the way her entire body goes up in flames under his hands are things he would rather slam a lid on and forget. Instead, he finds himself falling for the smart-mouth next door. But how long will he have before the evil chasing them catches up? How long before the very thing he never wanted becomes his only thread to sanity? And who is after them? What do they want and why do they want Spencer and Sophie dead?

I was sent a copy of Games Of Fire for a honest review.

Ok this book will have you going till the very end!! Wondering why life is getting in the way of you finishing this book because you do not want to put it down.
Ahh Spencer who sexy moody thing you  *Swoon*
He starts off being what Sophie would say a Jerk. A completely moody sexy jerk. Did I mention he has tattoos *Double Swoon* to go with his bad boy persona.
Then one day he cannot fight his feelings anymore and Sophie begins to break down the walls he has built up after being hurt by another chick who shattered him.

"The fiery trickle of outrage burned up her throat. "How the hell would you know that when you never gave me a chance?"
Something dark and scorching flickered behind his eyes. "Because no other girl has ever made me want to forget all my own rules for them"- Spencer

All the way through this shit is happening to them and you get glimpses of the psychos mind at the end of some of the chapters and crap can I say creepy!! The way they watched them stalked them did psycho things to mess them up. Made you want to read faster to see what would happen next and then the ending going to say it again Holy Shit!! As alot of it happens in YA books the banter back and forth between the characters was awesome. Sometimes it can feel forced but between Sophie and Spencer who felt the tension the good and the bad the way they gave it back to each other you were like' Yeah take that jerk face, and you take that blondie' lol. But the feelings that come across the page you feel them and makes you fall in love with them even more.

The ending OMG was freaking awesome you will have to read the book to find out more but would definitely recommend this to anyone who loves YA.

"His eyes were twin flakes of ember floating into the night from a roaring inferno.
"I won't let anything happen to you. No matter what i have to do, I will keep you safe."
