The thrilling and emotional conclusion to the Wildefire Trilogy

Known as the wild child of Midnight, Alabama, Sabrina Wilde has worked hard to earn that reputation. But beneath the tough girl façade lies a hurting, vulnerable heart. Fiercely loyal and protective of those she loves, Sabrina will do whatever it takes to keep her loved ones safe.

Private Investigator Ian Mackenzie has loved Sabrina for years. Understanding her pain and wariness of commitment doesn't stop him from hoping that someday she will trust him with her heart. When Sabrina puts herself in jeopardy, willing to sacrifice her life to save others, Ian has no choice but to foil her plans. He never knew what it would cost him.

As evil descends upon Midnight and Sabrina’s worst nightmares are realized, she is forced into an impossible position—trust her loved ones with her shameful secret or forever live in the shadows of the past.

One man is determined that she doesn't survive to do either.

Quick summary

Sabrina (Bri) Wilde returned to her hometown of Midnight inexplicably six months ago. Now we learn the reason why as she’s been vigilant daily in monitoring the town for unwelcome visitors. Of course it’s related to work she was conducting in Florida, sort of with her former partner and still current lover, Ian Mackenzie.

 

What I loved

There’s much more tension and suspense in this story compared to the first two books in the series. That doesn’t mean the romance takes a back seat because I can’t think of too many men more romantic and sexier than Ian. He’s constantly challenged by the commitment phobic Sabrina and never fails to meet them beautifully. He’s always got her back and saves her hide on numerous occasions.

The villains are truly awful, scary and always in the background whenever they weren’t an immediate threat. It wasn’t always clear, either, who were the good guys. I had to forsake sleep to finish the book in order to lower my anxiety (in case you’re wondering…that’s the way I like it).

 

The bottom line

Sabrina’s story is a wonderful close to a really great series. While her angst and recklessness was at times frustrating, she’s an admirable character that I liked a lot. Ian is now a member of my book boyfriend hall of fame…he’s that wonderful. But, I’m hoping there’s a spinoff or at least a novella for a couple of the men showing up in this story. I’d wait in line to read it. Well done.

I LOVE reading and am just crazy about so many series and writers. I’m open to exploring new authors and genres and appreciate those who not only write well but can deliciously craft a character and a tale. Your suggestions for new authors and titles are very much welcomed.

I also love to talk about books. There’s nothing more exciting than to finish a great story and cover it A to Z with other people, exploring different perspectives and points of view. So, if you see something on my shelf you’d like to talk about, send me a message and we’ll talk!
