Book Review: Singe by Aly Martinez


◄◄ Blurb ►►

She was my nightmare. Every time I closed my eyes, I watched her fall into that inferno. Over and over, I failed to save her.

I hadn’t been able to reach her, and the guilt only burned hotter over time. Four years later, I was the unreachable one.

Heroes aren’t always saints. Sometimes, we’re nothing more than jaded sinners driven by sleepless nights and hearts full of darkness.

And then I met her. She was a dreamer who managed to soothe my scars and heal my wounds.

But, as the flames closed in around us, I feared I wasn’t the right man to save her. That is until I realized she was the one woman I’d burn the world down to protect.

◄◄ My Thoughts ►►

I’m totally hooked, addicted, and obsessed with this new series. It was so good. I need more of these fellows immediately!

The breakdown:  Jude is a former Policeman who shares a traumatic past with our heroine Rhion.  One awful night changed both their lives significantly.  Jude responded to an emergency call while off duty.  What he witnessed during that call has haunted him for years.  He lost his job and suffers nightmares.  Picking up the pieces of his lost career, he transitions to security.   After signing on to a new firm in Chicago, he comes face to face with the face that haunts his dream.  Singe is the story of two lost souls finding peace and love in the midst of the most tragic circumstances.  It’s at times, haunting and shocking.  However, the overall story as not to be missed.

Here’s what I absolutely loved:  The unconventional story and heroine.  Even her name is unconventional.  Rhion has some major issues stemming from the trauma of the fire that changed her life.  Not all scars are physical.  She also has emotional traumas to overcome.  I love that she makes it her mission to be better.  She doesn’t want the fire and her scars to impair her.  She uses them to empower herself.  I really got a kick out of her.  He ramblings were the stuff of legends.

I really wanted to love Jude, but the truth he reveals about the night of the fire really was a slap in the face for me.  So, I had to settle for just liking him a bit.

The plot twists and witty secondary characters are fantastic.  I’m on pins and needles waiting for the remaining stories to be written.

Overall, this is a very engaging and entertaining read.  It’s smoking hot with an exciting plot and is flawlessly executed.  This was my first Aly Martinez read.  I’m kicking myself for that oversight now.  I’ll definitely be reading more of works very soon!

I rate it: four-stars
