Friday Frights ~ PNR Review ~ Relentless Flame by Jillian David

Reviewed by Shirley ~ 5 stars
**ARC received for an honest review**

This is the second book from a new author to the paranormal genre, and what a book it is. It has a very unique storyline, sensual; with believable characters that shows what pure love can do to change a person and to give them the life they deserve. 

I had to keep reading this book until I reached the end as I had to find out how the main characters Dante and Hannah’s tentative attraction for each other was going to pan out. Hoping it would grow and save the both of them.

This book is situated in Portland. Hannah and her brother Scott had moved there to start a new life, after finally getting away from a nasty, abusive step parent. Hannah worked in a book shop doing her best to keep a roof over their heads and food in their bellies as Scott had changed since he had started running around with a new crowd, especially one very obnoxious person called Brandon.

Since meeting these people Scott hadn't been able to hold down a job and it was all falling on Hannah’s shoulders to keep everything going. It is while Hannah was working that she first met Dante, a tall handsome blonde man who flirted with her every chance he could get. Hannah didn't take much notice as in her eyes she was a dowdy girl with a physical handicap that no man in their right mind would want especially a man like Dante.

Dante had been sent to Portland for a specific reason and after meeting Hannah and as he slowly got to know her, he couldn’t help but be surprised that this tiny woman was making him rethink everything he thought of women in general. He was a man, albeit not your normal man, with a terrible line of work but through all his long life he had lived life to the full having had many conquests with the ladies. Ladies who could not resist him and now in front of him was one who did. He couldn't believe it. She intrigued him immensely.

Through this really good story, you will read about the secrets that both Dante and Hannah were doing their best to keep from one another but through circumstances beyond their control they had to come clean and rely on each other to get through everything that was being hurled at them.

While everything was going on the attraction Hannah felt for Dante was growing, something which had not happened to her in a very long time. Slowly Dante drew closer to Hannah. The attraction he felt for her was growing stronger. He had an inkling of what her secret was and when he saw her in so much pain he had to take her in his arms and help her somehow.

“And then it happened: her soul, her physical and emotional pain, flowed from her into Dante. Aches and pains that had lingered from yesterday’s healings faded, like rubbing away a smudge on the cheek, a light sense of a soft wave lapping away at her pain. Nothing dramatic, but only physical relief remained in her connection to him. And it was good.”

They were good for each other. Her goodness to his evil. Dante made Hannah feel safe, something she hadn't felt for a very long time, so strange. Their attraction for each other was getting stronger even when everyone around them was doing their best to separate them, until not being able to resist each other anymore.

“He grasped her hips. When he pressed her onto him, he met her with thrusts of his own, hot, hard strokes consuming her, marking her. She relaxed her hips and gave into the mounting rhythm, grabbing his forearms for support. God, this is like flying through heaven.”

Brilliant book Ms David. I do love Dante, you can picture him in your mind, very saucy, but charming with it. A really good read.
