Why Do We Like This Book?

Adrian Recommends
I adore a good enemies-to-lovers story, and I totally fell in love with Jared and Tate in Bully. They put each other through Hell, but came out of it totally in love. So I was a bit worried about them in Aflame. Haven't they been through enough? Apparently not. Just like Bully and the other books in the Fall Away Series, Aflame is emotional, heart-wrenching and incredibly passionate. Jared and Tate have that magnet pull to each other that can't be ignored, no matter how hard they try to ignore it. I had such high expectations for this book. It blew me away. Every word. LOVED IT!

Favorite Quotes

He touched me even when he couldn’t reach me.  He whispered in my ear from twenty feet away.  And I could always feel his lips even when we were apart.
“Challenge accepted, Tatum.  This time I don’t want you hurt,” he continued, his breath falling over me as he got in my face, “and I don’t want you small.  I just want you.  Do you hear me?”  He jerked me into his body. “It will be my ring on your finger and my kids in your belly someday.”
“Can we just skip to the end?” I asked softly.  “I’m tired of missing you, Tate.”  And that was it.  No more talking, no more arguing, no more denying what couldn’t be changed…I only lived in her orbit, and I would die there, too.  There was no choice to be made.
“I’m sorry, baby,” she said breathlessly, smiling, “but love you or hate you, this is how I fuck you.”

The Book Details
Publisher Synopsis

The tables have turned. Now I have the power—and it’s his turn to beg…

Everyone wants to be me.

Maybe it’s the sway of my skirt or the way I flip my hair, but I don’t care. Even though their attention is the last thing I crave, I just can’t stop. I dominate the track, the speed rattles my bones, and the wind and the crowd screams my name.

I’m her. The girl driver. The queen of the race. And I’m surviving—something he thought I’d never do.

They all talk about him. Did you see Jared Trent on T.V? What did you think of his last race, Tate? When is he coming back to town, Tate?

But I refuse to care too much. Because when Jared does come home, I won’t be here.

Tatum Brandt is gone. I’m someone new.

About The Author
Adrian Perkins

My romance novel obsession started when I was a kid reading my Mom’s Jackie Collins novels. I’m a romance junkie and I like my men to be alpha males and my ladies to be quirky and strong. I need the HEA but it’s OK if it takes 2 or 3 or 10 books to get there. Lee Nightingale is my forever BBF.

I’m a Part-time Realtor and full-time Mommy with a husband, 2 kids and 3 cats. I love to travel almost as much as I love to read.
