Flame is an amazing conclusion to Autumn and Hunter’s story. I have followed and enjoyed Autumn and Hunter’s journey from the beginning and I am sad that it has came to a end. Flame dives deeper into Hunter and Autumn’s personal lives and gets a little more hot and heavy.
This book begins where the first two left off. Hunter’s brother Jessie gets out of jail and slips right back into his big brother role. Hunter and Jessie pick around, argue, and would do anything for each other.
Hunter brings Autumn to his childhood home for the first time and is surprised by her reaction. Hunter has a hard time talking about his past, but soon realizes that he must tell Autumn to move forward with their relationship.
“I don’t want to let you do. I won’t. Ever. I don’t care if I’m not good for you. Let me be selfish just this once. It doesn’t matter whether you walk away from me, or if I have to walk across the ocean to get you, or if I have to move the fucking world. I can’t do this without you.”
Autumn decides it’s time to take Hunter to meet her parents. She is in love with him and wants their approval. Autumn still struggles some with her past from being teased and tormented and it causes a little drama in her relationship with Hunter.
I wasn’t for sure if I wanted to devour this book or take my time. I didn’t want Autumn and Hunter’s story to come to an end. I got a little emotional and shed a few tears several times while reading. Hunter “motherf**king” Bane is is sexy as hell, passionate, and a fighter. Definitely one of my favorite book boyfriends. Flame has a great unexpected ending with an HEA. Sigh…wishing it wasn’t over.

“How did you like my little love bites?”
I roll my eyes and chuckle a little. “You really are a devil, you know that?”
Grinning, he lifts my face and softly presses his lips on mine, the arousal still lingering in the air between us. “I know you like it.”
“Hmm … Maybe.”
“Maybe my ass. You don’t just like it, you love it. Don’t deny it. I have proof.”
I giggle. “Oh really? What proof?”
He raises one eyebrow and signals to my ass. “Your naked ass straddling my cock on the couch says enough.”
I gape at him, suppressing a laugh that I swallow back. “Oh my god, you did not just say that.”
“What? It’s the truth.”
“Hunter!” I prod him with my finger again.
“Hey, you’re the one who offered herself to me willingly. You’re an amazing seductress, you know that? Got me all riled up there.”
I blush. “I just … wanted to make you happy.”
He frowns, wrapping his fingers around my arms, pushing me forward to gaze at me. “You just did that to alleviate my stress?”
“Yes and no.”
He sighs. “Leafy … I don’t want a pity fuck, and I don’t want you to use your body as means to make me feel better. That’s not what I want from you, you know that.”
“I know, but I want to make you feel better about yourself, and I know for a fact this relaxes you.”
He looks down at the tiny space between us, avoiding my eyes. I can tell this is difficult for him. “Now it feels like I used you.”
“You didn’t. I wanted this. I wanted to do this for you … but also for myself.”
His radiant, grey eyes creep back up to my level again, curious and enchanting. He squints. “Are you admitting you wanted to fuck me?”
I smash my lips together, trying to keep a giggle from coming out. He’s right, but it feels so bad to admit it. “I guess.”
A slow, half smile curves his lips. “You’re starting to love it, you little vixen.”
“Hey, I’m not that bad,” I say.
“I wish you’d be. I fucking love it,” he says, pressing a kiss to my chin. “So you fucked me to pleasure yourself and to make me feel better? I can live with that. Seems like you really want to please me.”
“You’re such a smart ass sometimes. If you don’t watch it, I’ll tell you to suck it.”
He nuzzles my boobs, burying his head between them. “Hmmm … Please do. I’ll suck you any day.”
“God, stop it! You and your sexual innuendos.” I shove him further into the couch, laughing.
He growls, biting his lip seductively. “Oh, I like it when you play rough.” He lunges forward and wraps his arms around me, dragging me to his chest. Trapping me between his muscular arms, he says, “Gotya.”
I chuckle against his neck, placing soft kisses on his skin. I could poke him all day, and sometimes I just want to smother him with hugs. I kind of love that man of mine.
He places a kiss on top of my head, running the tips of his fingers up and down my spine. “I love you more than anything,” he murmurs.
“Hmm … I love you too. So much more than I can show you.”
He takes a long, deep breath. “Thank you for being here. I can’t tell you how much it means to me that you’re here when I’m …” he chokes on his own words.
“I’ll always be here to catch you if you fall. I don’t want to see you get hurt,” I say.
“That’s why I love you. You’re always there for me, even when I hurt everyone around me. With the shit that I put you and my brother through, I’m thankful you guys haven’t left me yet.”
