Fighting His Fire

The Rock Gods #6

Ann Lister

synopsis

Locked-down at a Los Angeles intervention facility, everyone around Dante Dupont and his Black Ice band mate, Ashton Lane, thought this would fix the issues between them. Dante and Ashton knew differently. What made this a hundred times worse was the fact they were stuck in this room together. They hadn’t shared space like this since the one afternoon they both wanted to forget. And, revisiting that nightmare was not an option . . . with or without the help of a therapist.
Two musicians. Same band. Afraid to admit their true feelings, being in close quarters again has them both at their breaking point. They say if you can’t stand the heat, get out of the kitchen, but neither of them can find a reason to leave, and fighting the fire is becoming more and more difficult to do.
Dante’s baggage isn’t pretty and his scars run deep, but Ashton might be the one to finally see beyond his past and help him find a way out from the smoke screen he’s spent his life hiding behind. In order to get there, though, they’ll both have to walk through the flames.

Check out this snip-it:

Dante’s big hand touched Ashton’s firm thigh and squeezed. A grin lifted one side of his lips. “Oh, I don’t know about the kid comment. The parts of you I’ve seen look all man to me.” Dante leaned in and brushed his lips to Ashton’s. “Every…last…inch.”

This story is also so full of emotion. You’ll tear up at the most unexpected times just because these alpha men are just so open and honest with each other. Here, for example….

“You’re worth it, Dante, and, I’m not just saying that. You always were. You just needed to believe in yourself.”

Here’s the series, in order….. You can read them as standalones…. but why do that? Trust me, you will get SO much more out of the stories knowing who everyone is and how they are all connected. It’s a beautiful story…..one I can’t wait to see on the big screen!!

╰☆╮MY REVIEW╰☆╮

Lukas by Carian Cole
Lukas & Ivy
I’LL GIVE YOU AS MANY FORKS AS YOU WANT!

I just finished reading this book and probably should wait a while before reviewing it however I can’t. This book tore me apart into the tiniest little pieces and then put me back together and not necessarily in the right order. Carian Cole constantly one ups herself every time she put a book out in this series. After I’ve finished one of her Ashes and Embers books I seriously can’t see how any new one can be better and then I get her next installment and freak way the fuck out at how excellently it’s written and played out. I wonder if she will ever know how much her words touch me.

Lukas is perfect in every way! He’s all alpha, with tons of tattoos, long hair, and the brooding attitude to back it all up. Although he may look tough and distorted on the outside, he has a heart of gold and would sell his own soul to the devil for the people that he loves. Lukas is trying to sway a woman more than a decade his senior and it seems as though he might be having some trouble. He’s a good listener and picks up what Ivys laying down… If u catch my drift!! Lawd, dis muthafucka’s fine!!!

Now Ivy… Well… I can totally relate… I was 30 when I met my twenty something hubs. I totally cannot fault her for treading lightly regarding Lukas. Poor Ivy is coming off of a bitter divorce after 18 years of what she thought marital bliss. Now a single mother of two is learning to live again. A coupon for a tattoo falls into her hand… soo… Who better to teach her then our beautifully fucked up Dark Angel, Lukas. Cheers to strong women!

“I can kiss you everywhere and slowly make you fucking crazy until you beg for me, or I can just bury my cock in you right now and ravish the rest of you after you’re done cumming all over me.”
“Oh”
“Oh?”
I wrap my arms around him and slide my hand down his back. “do the bury thing,” I say breathlessly.
~Lukas and Ivy rant

The supporting character cast in this story is fairly large. Of course you can’t have an Ashes and Embers sequel without all the boys! This story somewhat backtracks to the first story but continues off on its own. So good to see Storm whoooing Evie and we get to relive some horrific events that happened in book 2, thank you Carian, not! The other half of the supporting cast would be Ivy’s children who are Maci and Tommy. We see a little bit of Tommy here and there, but Macy plays a bigger role, a roll that nearly killed me. And then we have the ex husband Paul… This guy is a piece of shit! A serious douche bag… Um, really folks… how much douche could a douchbag douche if a douchebag could bag douche! That’s Paul!

Now, my favorite supporting… well… pet? Ray the Raven… how cool is that… He mimicks everything Lukas, Ivy, and the kids say… Like “Up against the wall” or “I’m taking you upstairs.” Carian puts the best animals in all her books… for Storm it was Niko the huge “wolf” like dog… then in Vandal it was Sterling the blind cat… loved that kitty! And now we have the foul mouthed raven Ray!

Lukas was fast paced and so persuasive that I could NOT put it down. The dialogue flows and the writing style was outstanding! It’s dark, but not too dark. It’s funny in all the right places and it’ll pull on your heartstrings until you have no choice but to fall right along with these magnificent characters. It’s 209 (Kindle version) pages long and that climax made me want to run out and buy the next book… damn it… it’s not out yet!!!

5 Stars!

Exclusive Excerpt:

He leans his head down closer to mine. “You looking at me like that, and saying my name like that, just makes me want to kiss you even more.”

I swallow hard, unable to tear my eyes away from his. “You really shouldn’t be saying things like that,” I breathe, my voice quivering. He’s got my nerves in overdrive. Hell, who am I kidding? He’s got my entire mind and body in overdrive right now.

He moves his hand to cup the side of my face. “Close your eyes, Ivy. Let’s make our wishes at the same time.”

Lukas is a wizard, and I’ve quickly fallen under his spell. My eyes flutter closed, and his lips touch mine, so softly that we are barely touching at all, but it’s enough to make me see even more shooting stars, this time behind closed eyes, in that place where magic happens. His kiss is completely unexpected but way too perfect to break away from. I drop my bag to the ground and bring my hands up to rest on his shoulders. He kisses me a little harder, his tongue gently touching my lips, silently asking permission for more. Parting my lips, I let him kiss me deeper, his tongue slowly meeting mine, caressing in enticing circles. The feel of his tongue piercing and lip ring is so strange to me, yet incredibly erotic. I think I like it. His hand goes to my hip, pulling my body possessively but gently against him, as his kisses grow more passionate and urgent. My legs begin to shake with timid desire, my hands squeezing his muscled shoulders, hanging on to him in this sudden dizzying realm he’s led me into. Did a first kiss ever feel like this before? Has any kiss ever felt like this before? No. Not for me. Not ever.

He oozes skilled sensuality; every touch, every breath, every kiss is measured in perfect timing and depth. This is not an awkward, clumsy, rushed and horny boy touching me for kicks. Not by a long shot. He’s savoring everything. And I don’t want him to stop.

Grasping my waist with both hands, he effortlessly lifts me up onto the hood of my car, bringing me closer to eye level with him. He moves between my parted legs, guides my thighs around his jean-clad hips, and covers my mouth with his again, kissing me long, deep, and tantalizingly slow as he gently holds my face in his hands. It’s the kind of kiss that brands complete want and ownership. He leaves no doubt that he wants me. The logical part of me is telling me to stop him, but the lonely, aching part of me takes over, and I slide my hands up his chest and over his shoulders to clasp behind his neck. My fingers tangle in his long silky hair, and I love how new and different it feels. Everything about him is so different, like tasting an exotic food for the first time that quickly leads to crazy indulgence. That magnetic pull I felt the first time I laid eyes on him is a force to be reckoned with right now. It’s controlling me, taking over every part of me, squashing my fears and reservations, and paving a very clear path that leads directly to this man. I cannot even begin to understand or make the tiniest bit of sense of this attraction. But it’s there, and it’s stronger than anything I’ve ever felt in my life.

Suddenly, he stops kissing me, his lips just a whisper away from mine, and stares into my eyes for a few moments, before letting his dark eyes slowly close as he pulls me closer against his body, his hard cock pressing against me through our clothes, sending a hot surge of raw desire through me.

What I glimpsed in his eyes shook me even more than his kiss.

All feelings that carry the ability to give immense pleasure and pain. Neither of which I am ready for.

I slowly try to pull myself away from him, but he holds me close against him.

“Wow,” I say breathlessly, leaning my head against his shoulder.

“Come upstairs with me, and let’s see if we can upgrade that to a holy shit,” he whispers, his hand resting on the back of my neck, gently squeezing.
