Product Description

After the catastrophic events at the Homecoming Dance at the end of Burn for Burn, Lillia, Kat and Mary come face to face with the consequences of their actions - Reeve in the hospital. While Lillia and Kat begin to have reservations about moving forward with their revenge, Mary becomes convinced Reeve needs to get what is coming to him, no matter what. And as they agreed, each revenge plot needs to be completed. Lillia will make Reeve fall in love with her and then break his heart, just like he broke Mary's. But spending so much time with Reeve, pretending to fall for him, Lillia finds she her fake feelings start feeling very real. And as devoted as the girls are to seeing this through, their friendship starts to sag under the weight of their secrets. Is revenge really worth all of this?

3.0 out of 5 stars Confusing 30 Dec 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This book was good, not great, but it did capture my attention. I found it tedious in the middle of the novel but coming to the end it was finally picking up. Honestly the ending confused me sincerely. It was a plot twist like no other but where is the third book to explain it? A third instalment is necessary for the ending of this novel to fit, otherwise it is not fitting at all. I would recommend this book only if you absolutely loved the first one "Burn for Burn", otherwise don't bother.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good Second Book, but felt a bit long. 9 Oct 2013
By Sarah
Format:Kindle Edition
(Source: I received a digital copy of this book for free on a read-to-review basis. Thanks to Simon & Schuster Books for Young Readers and Edelweiss.)
This is book 2 in the `Burn For Burn' series, and kicks off a few hours after the end of book 1 `Burn for Burn'.
**Warning - some unavoidable spoilers for book 1 `Burn for Burn'.**
Following the events of the dance, Reeve has ended up in hospital with a broken leg, and the girls are feeling a little guilty over what happened.
Mary doesn't want this to interfere with their plan for revenge though, and once again the intended victim is Reeve.
Can the girl's use Reeve's feelings for Lilia against him? What is this strange paranormal ability that Mary seems to have? And will Reeve ever feel sorry for what he did to Mary?

This was an interesting second book, but it seemed quite long.

Lilia, Kat, and Mary continued in this book the way they did in the first - planning ways to pay back the people who had wronged them. The major plan this time though was back to `John Tucker Must Die' territory - get Reeve to fall in love with Lilia and then break his heart. I wasn't sure that this was a very good idea though, I would not have wanted to bet on Lilia being able to start a relationship with Reeve without her own feelings getting involved.

The last book ended with a strange paranormal occurrence, and there didn't seem to have been much made of this in this second book, until right at the end. I did guess what was going on slightly earlier than Mary did, because the clues we got pointed directly to what was going on, and I did think that this paranormal element was handled pretty well all things considered. We were then left with another cliff-hanger at the end of this book which was unfortunate.

5.0 out of 5 stars Holy WOW! 22 Aug 2013
By K. Sowa - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover
I was so happy to be back on Jar Island with three ladies that I grew to really like in Burn For Burn. Fire With Fire picks up as Reeve is aggressively recovering from his "accident" and all three girls are kind of happy and horrified that their revenge plot worked. As they try to navigate the post-revenge environment, Lillia's life seems to change the most since the homecoming dance had some big social consequences for her. When Kat and Mary ask Lillia to break Reeve's heart, things get even more interesting. Real feelings get mixed in with loyalty to friends and anger for what Reeve did and it made the plot very engaging. I felt so for badly for Mary, who still felt the pain of Reeve's betrayal, no matter how hard she tried forget it. Her situation at home with her aunt deteriorates, as well, but if you are wondering if you will find out what Mary's abilities mean, all I can say is: oh, yes you will. Kat, who is my favorite, showed a slightly softer side and I really liked the way we got a peek into her life with her dad. She is so eager to get off the island, but she also feels conflicted about moving on after her mother's death. In between the insight into each girl's life, the overall plan of revenge against Reeve is put into place, but certain secrets are getting harder and harder to keep.

Things start to unravel quickly, with a series of events that put my heart in my throat and kept me up very late so I could finish the book. I am so glad that I kept reading because, at the very end, the bottom drops out of everything and I was thrown one of the biggest OMG WTF twists I have read in a long, long time. I mean, I was taken totally by surprise. I think I sat there with my mouth actually hanging open. It was awesome, but also painful, because while one big question was answered, I have about a million more. Where Burn For Burn set the stage with a compelling story and good character development, Fire With Fire grabs you by the collar and doesn't let go. I think one of the reasons I love it so much is that it combines everything I love about contemporaries with some really interesting paranormal elements. All I could think after finishing it was, is it time for book 3 yet????

5.0 out of 5 stars A tense sequel with a shocking ending 15 Aug 2013
By The Compulsive Reader - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover
After the consequences of the homecoming dance, Kat, Lillia, and Mary decide that perhaps they've had enough of their plots to exact revenge on their peers. But once the girls have had a taste for balancing the scales (according to their own perspectives), it gets harder for them to stop meddling. As Kat, Lillia, and Mary discover surprising secrets about the people in their community, they come closer to discovering the truth about their own friendship and each other.

Fire with Fire is a tense sequel to Burn for Burn, full of surprising developments and shocking revelations. Kat, Lillia, and Mary each have their own story lines and struggles that are woven together to create a high-stakes and unexpected story. The character development is excellent, and so is the development of the distinctive setting of Jar Island. Han and Vivian explore the duality of class and wealth, and the unique social dynamics that occur in a tourist destination during the off season, populated with the extremely wealthy and lower middle class in a way that will appeal to fans of Veronica Mars. Although the mystery of this trilogy may not be immediately obvious, the tension in this story is thick as Kat struggles with deciding what she wants, Lillia grapples with an unexpected romance, and Mary faces the demons from her past, building to an explosive ending that will make readers rethink everything they thought they knew about the characters.

Cover Comments: I love these covers. The colors and the cover models are gorgeous and so perfect for the story. I love Kat's direct stare in this one--so fitting knowing her character.

5.0 out of 5 stars Mind Blowing! 15 Aug 2013
By AboutToRead - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover
I dove into Fire with Fire the very day I got it. I loved Burn for Burn and I was anxious to see what would happen next, although I wasn't sure exactly what direction the series was heading. Fire with Fire far exceed my expectations. It was impossible to put down, full of twists and turns, and even better than Burn for Burn!

By the end of Burn for Burn, I pretty much hated every character except for Lindy. I was certainly sympathetic to them all in one way for another, but it didn't stop me from thinking that they were all basically bad people. By the end of Fire with Fire, the only characters I truly couldn't stand were Rennie and, surprisingly, Mary. Everyone else (including Reeve) is now on my list of good people and characters I'll always love (except for Kat, who has only been elevated to like).

As much as I love the characters, the plot was possibly even better --it's just so good! It's hard to say whether or not I think the plot or the characters are stronger, but they are both defiantly fantastic! Fire with Fire still has a plot that is revenge driven, but it has stronger notes of forgiveness. The end of the novel was so incredibly thrilling, that I was on the edge of my seat the entire time! This book is just 100% un-put-downable. I have so many theories and ideas for what might happen in the final novel and I am so anxious to see where everything truly ends up going.

Fire for Fire is an epic follow up to Burn for Burn. This is one of those books that I will certainly be recommending to everyone I know. It is such an emotional and thrilling read! From the mystery surrounding Mary to the unexpected romances and the overwhelming need for vengeance, Fire with Fire has a little bit of something for everyone. This is one series that simply cannot be missed.

5.0 out of 5 stars Best book I've ever read! 19 Dec 2013
By alexis Hoffritz - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I couldn't put this book down! I finished the whole thing in one day. Oh the suspense! However, it was very sad I wish it didn't end like that because I prefer closure. I hope they come up with a third book because I would definitely love to read it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Even better than the first! 3 Feb 2014
By Gar0190 - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition
While I was originally excited about the first book in this series, now I'm flailing around wanting everyone to read this one! I consumed these 528 pages in a week. The book is fast paced and chapters are short, but gripping. These characters are written so well that they started feeling like MY PEOPLE. I was transported to Jar Island. I was transfixed.

I read once that you know you're reading a good book when you have to cover up the next page so you don't read ahead. I was definitely doing this at the end of the book, where I found myself in utter shock. Don't let anyone spoil this ending for you. It's gonna' be GOOD.
