Release Blitz ~ Wicked Flame by Ella Frank (Review)

Love is not just a four-letter word.

Wicked Flame, a steamy, opposites attract MM romance and the highly-anticipated conclusion to the Chicago Heat Duet, set in the beloved Chicagoverse from USA Today bestselling author Ella Frank, is now available!


Life is hard. I learned that at an early age growing up on the South Side of Chicago. I accepted it, even came to expect it. With a sister who was a constant source of worry, and a track record of losing anyone even remotely close to me, trouble seemed to follow me no matter where I turned.

Some people were born lucky. I was just born.

That’s what I used to believe, anyway, until GQ. The gorgeous guy in the fancy clothes who for some reason decided to look twice at me. He gave me a place to call my own, a space to feel safe, and he made me believe in the impossible—that love was more than just a four-letter word.

Life is unexpected. I learned that just recently when I walked into a bar on the South Side and found the love of my life—Jameson Clarke.

He’s everything I’ve always wanted, and yet somehow even better than I imagined. He’s brave, brash, protective of those he loves, and under all that bravado is a vulnerability that calls to my very soul.

Jameson’s a storm cloud, but he thinks I’m the sun. If that’s true, then I’m determined to break through the shadows of his past and steal his heart the way he’s stolen mine.

4.5 Stars! 

Wicked Flame is the second book in the Chicago Heat Duet and needs to be read in order. Also, Xander and Sean and Gabe and Marcus also feature here so you might want to check out their books.

This book starts right where Wicked Heat left off, with Jameson, Ryan, and Jon helping Jameson’s sister after she gets badly beaten up.

I really loved that Jameson opened up to Ryan a lot more in this book and that Ryan was there for him when Jameson needed him. They just make such a great couple, with scorching chemistry and complementing the other in the best way.

I loved the scenes in the firehouse and the firefighting and fire rescue scenes. I also liked that Jameson finally stood up to his sister and made her see that she had options. And of course, catching up with Gabe and Marcus, and Xander and Sean was all kinds of awesome!

This was a very low-angst, emotional, and steamy read, it was a bit of an extended epilogue as we followed Ryan and Jameson’s lives and saw how well their lives meshed despite them being so different. Recommendable!
