“What matters most is how you walk through the fire.” ~ Charles Bukowski
No longer simmering and crackling beyond our realm, the fire smoldering in the distance roars to life. The blaze has the capacity to scorch and destroy everything and everyone in its path. All that I’ve known and believed was obliterated the moment Madeline spoke a truth I’d never suspected. With one sentence, one plea, my life has taken an uncharted turn.
Through the smoke and soot, I search for answers. A man, an outfit, and my brothers-in-arms have been my solace, my calling, and my reason to live. Now that I know there’s more, what will the future hold? The Ivanov bratva wants Chicago. I want what they possess. With the Sparrow world at war, and Madeline’s declaration, she and I are surrounded, trapped by the inferno.
What will remain when the flames cease and we are left surveying the ashes?
From New York Times bestselling author Aleatha Romig comes a brand-new dark romance, FLAME, set in the dangerous world of Chicago’s underground.
FLAME is book two of the WEB OF DESIRE trilogy that began in SPARK and concludes in ASHES.

So Many Secrets and Lies! But GEEZ it is so Thrilling
More twists and turns you will never see coming, suspense, corruption, and human trafficking in Aleatha’s superb 2nd book in this amazing trilogy! I so was not expecting the shocking OMG cliffhanger at the end at all, but this will certainly change this whole storyline, you won’t know which way is up. But will I be waiting for the last book in baited breath. For sure I will. This book is a hold on to your pants fast paced thriller that drags you along! I had to read this book in one sitting, I just couldn’t put it down my Ipad was on fire! hubby had to cook the dinner, shame! I experienced every emotion during Patrick and Madeline’s story! Tears that made me sick to my stomach, with Madeline’s time in the cell, joy that some of these evil human traffickers are being brought down, and the enduring love from childhood that Patrick and Madeline made my heart so happy!
I can only but highly recommend this 5 star ⭐️ read!
I voluntarily reviewed this book after receiving a free copy
What the actual....
OMG I devoured this book and I’m left completely gobsmacked with the ending. Only Aleatha can write a book like this and leave you with an epic cliffhanger. I can’t believe I have got to wait till April for the conclusion. Definitely recommend this book
