4.05 of 5 stars 4.05  ·  rating details  ·  536 ratings  ·  95 reviews
One small town girl with a bright future.
One smokejumper with a dark past.
One summer that will forever change them both.
They’re going . . .

Up In Flames.

Elle’s life couldn’t possibly get any more small town than it already is. She was raised in the same home as the two generations before her were, her family owns the iconic downtown cafe, and she’s been dating the pastor’s son since she was allowed to go on her first date at sixteen.

Cole’s life couldn’t possibly get any larger. He’s tried. Roaming from town to town for the past three summers as a smokejumper, Cole dreads the thought of putting down roots. The only thing he avoids more than that is settling down with one woman, especially when there are as many willing women as there are trees in the forest he jumps out of planes to save.

Elle Montgomery’s life is going one way. And Cole Carson’s is going the opposite. There’s no reason their paths should ever intersect, even in a small town in central Washington.

But summer in the Methow Valley has other plans for Elle and Cole. After an awkward run-in at the local swimming hole, Elle tries to keep away from the guy who looks at her like she’s already lying beneath him in bed. She fails. Cole is about as successful at staying away from the girl who seems immune to his charms.

As the summer heats up, and tensions between Elle and Cole run high, he begins to realize there’s more he’s attracted to than Elle’s body, and she discovers there’s a lot more to the man that jumps out of planes into raging forest fires than meets the eye.

UP IN FLAMES is a New Adult Romance intended for mature readers due to steamy content and saucy language

My Thoughts:

Hmm.. I love and hate this book at the same time... I love the simple writing style. I love the swoonworthy Cole. I love the whole smokejumper thing. But... I hate that Elle is freaking cheating on her boyfriend and she even dares to feel hurt after hurting two guys (talking bout selfish)... I am in Team Cole but somehow I think both of them don't deserve to be happy after hurting Logan (Elle 's boyfriend) so badly. And I hate that Logan finds out about the truth in such a freaking cruel way (SPOILER ALERT) While they're having sex? For real?! (SPOILER ENDS). As an overall I liked this book. I would've loved it more if it wasn't for how stupid Elle is.

My Rating: 3.5
