Lillia, Kat, and Mary had the perfect plan. Work together in secret to take down the people who wronged them. But things didn’t exactly go the way they’d hoped at the Homecoming Dance.
Not even close.
For now, it looks like they got away with it. All they have to do is move on and pick up the pieces, forget there ever was a pact. But it’s not easy, not when Reeve is still a total jerk and Rennie’s meaner than she ever was before.
And then there’s sweet little Mary…she knows there’s something seriously wrong with her. If she can’t control her anger, she’s sure that someone will get hurt even worse than Reeve was. Mary understands now that it’s not just that Reeve bullied her—it’s that he made her love him.
Eye for an eye, tooth for a tooth, burn for a burn. A broken heart for a broken heart. The girls are up to the task. They’ll make Reeve fall in love with Lillia and then they will crush him. It’s the only way he’ll learn.
It seems once a fire is lit, the only thing you can do is let it burn…
I just finished this book and my heart is racing and I honestly can’t even wait until my head clears to write a proper review (just a heads up in case this review is all over the place).
Fire with Fire starts off with the fallout of the homecoming disaster. Reeve is more repulsive than ever, Rennie turns into a tyrant queen bee, and Lillia, Kat, and Mary have no choice but to lay low – easier said than done! The drama surrounding these girls intensifies.
All three girls quickly realize that they have to go all in if they want successful revenge. Lillia is the agent who fully commits to her part in the revenge. Unexpected relationships are made and broken, but things don’t go as expected – at all. Lillia’s social life is completely turned upside down but she won’t go out without a fight. The claws come out.
Mary isn’t normal. We know that much; but we learn so much more about her. Stranger things begin to happen. Supernatural things. With a crazy aunt who gets more and more unstable with each passing day, and Reeve being more vicious than ever, Mary is an emotional wreck. She doesn’t know what to believe about herself and her powers. She doesn’t understand her own family situation. To put the cherry on the cake, Reeve hurts her even worse. But the more Mary understands, the more she wishes she didn’t. The truth about her is absolutely startling and will leave you (and her) with so many new questions.
Not too much happens around Kat in this book that was insane per say. But Kat sure is ringleader of the three girls this time. After unlikely befriending Mary, Kat helps to keep her safe and in a stable state of mind. She also is the one to push Alex towards a life of pursuing his dreams. She alsooooo organizes Mary’s revenge scheme, ordering Lillia around the field and towards their goal.
This book just continues to intensify, chapter by chapter. The last 58 pages of the book are just mad. Mary’s family life, social life, emotional life, and just “life” gets completely burned. Lillia goes off the deep end and starts to listen to her gut instead of her head and throws any old plans out the window (at least for that night), completely burning a big relationship. Not everyone comes out alive. When I finished this book a couple of minutes ago, I was left with my mouth hanging open and my heart racing.
Burns hurt, but fire kills.
