“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.

Flame - great 2nd book in the Web of Desire trilogy
This book was equally as good as Spark, book 1 of the Web of Desire trilogy. Once again the author easily reels you back into the continuing story of Patrick & Maddie. You begin to understand the horrors of human trafficking and the strength needed just to stay alive. This does end in a way that there’s no way your not going to read the final book of the trilogy.
As with Spark, this is a fantastic story that’s very hard to put down. I highly recommend.
What a story unbelievable ride of intrigue. Loved it
This Flame Is Burning Bright
After the ending of SPARK (Book 1) left us all standing there with our chins on the floor, I couldn't wait to get my hands on FLAME, the second book in the Web of Desire series by author Aleatha Romig. Where in the world was Aleatha going to go with Patrick's and Madeleine's story, and would it be as action-packed and twisty and turny as in SPARK? Well, of course, the answer to my questions is, yes, absolutely, and along the same twisty turny path that had me flipping pages in the first part of the story.
FLAME gives readers more of the back story between Patrick and Madeleine, especially the things that Maddie has gone through and done to save herself and all that is important to her. The lengths that she's gone to are intense, and are a testament to the love and strength that drive her.
Patrick is alpha with a capital 'A,' and even more so once he finds out more about the secrets that Maddie is harboring. He and the Sparrows are definitely the ones that I'd want in my corner if the going got hinky, and with his not-so-vested interest in Maddie, he's the perfect man for this job.
FLAME is the perfect follow-up to SPARK, and leaves plenty of room for action and answers both in ASH, the upcoming last book in this series. 4 easy stars for Patrick, Maddie, and their far-from-over story. If you haven't been Aleatha'd, now's the time. ❤️
