Review: Kiss Of Fire by Rebecca Ethington




Blurb taken from Goodreads:

Joclyn Despain has been marred by a brand on her skin. She doesn't know why the mark appeared on her neck, but she doesn't want anyone to see it, including her best friend Ryland, who knows everything else about her. The scar is the reason she hides herself behind baggy clothes, and won't let the idea of kissing Ryland enter her mind, no matter how much she wants to.
The scar is the reason she is being hunted.

If only she knew that she was.

If only she had known that the cursed stone her estranged father sent for her 16th birthday would trigger a change in her. Now, she is being stalked by a tall blonde man, and is miraculously throwing her high school bully ten feet in the air.

Joclyn attempts to find some answers and the courage to follow her heart. When Ryland finds her scar; only he knows what it means, and who will kill her because of it.



My review:

Wow!!! What an intense read! Couldn't put this one down.

Kiss Of Fire revolves around sixteen-year old outcast, Joclyn. As a young child, Joclyn suffered a traumatic incident that left her with an odd scar and without a father. Positive the new mark on her neck was the reason her father left, she does everything she can to keep it covered and appear "Invisible" to shield her from the loss of anyone leaving her again. Her only friend is Ryland, the heir to the vast Imdalind Forging empire, and son of her mother's boss.

I fell in love with Ryland instantly. I absolutely adored the fact he ignored his horrible father when he was told to stay away from Joclyn. He doted on her, watched over her, and protected her always,and it was clear to me, early on, that he and his "Jos" were more than just best friends. Their love leapt right off the page.

The writing was excellent, and the characters quite engaging. The first half of the book flowed very well, and the second was so action-packed I didn't want to put my kindle down because I had to know what happened next.

The secondary characters where every bit as engaging as the protagonists, and I felt equally invested in their outcomes.

The cliffhanger ending ensured I will be reading the next installment. I HAVE to know what happens to poor Ryland!!

If you're a fan of YA Fantasy, you'll enjoy this read.
