Blog Tour: Games of Fire by Airicka Phoenix!

Publication date: 14th February 2013
Paperback edition: -
Source: Kindle
Rating: 5 stars
Synopsis: Sophie has enough problems in her life without Spencer turning her blood to fire, without his eyes freezing and burning her, without his hatred of her. Since his migration into the house next to hers, Sophia Valdez isn’t sure whether she wants to toss him under a bus or kiss that smirking mouth of his. But even as the temperature rises around them, leaping flames of passion, want and desire, everything either has ever known will be shattered by the lurking shadow hounding their every step, wanting revenge.

Spencer Rowth moves to the sleepy town of River Port with his mother and twelve year old sister, Suzy, to escape a deceitful father, an unfaithful girlfriend and a life crumbling much too fast for him to grapple onto only to be smacked upside the head by the last thing he wanted again. Sophie was everything he refused to want. Her temper, her wit, her laugh, her smile, the way her entire body goes up in flames under his hands are things he would rather slam a lid on and forget. Instead, he finds himself falling for the smart-mouth next door. But how long will he have before the evil chasing them catches up? How long before the very thing he never wanted becomes his only thread to sanity? And who is after them? What do they want and why do they want Spencer and Sophie dead?
OMG! This book was epic! The characters, the plot, just everything about it screamed awesome! Once I started reading, I honestly couldn't stop! I would tell myself to just read one more chapter but I always found myself reading like 5 or 6 more chapters! The plot was so beautiful but it was full of suspense and action at the same time! I adored the relationship development between the two main characters as it was slow and it definitely developed at the right pace for the plot as well! The plot was also full of action and it would come when you were least expecting it as well! I did find this book a bit long but there was enough action in it to make it seem like it was a 200 page book instead of like a 400 page book! I fell in love with the characters! Sophie was the main character and I just adored her! She didn't do anything to annoy me or agitate me and she was so easy to relate to! Everyone is going to have a new book boyfriend after they read this book! Spencer is one of the hottest characters I have ever had the pleasure to read about! My mouth dropped open when Airicka introduced him into Games of Fire! He was absolutely perfect! I can completely understand why he acted like a jerk to Sophie at the beginning of this book but I loved his development and his relationship with Sophie! The secondary characters in this book were so funny! Sophie's best friends had some of the funniest lines that I have ever read! The ending was full of suspense! It was just amazing! I did guess the bad guy as soon as he was introduced though and I was right! I knew that there was always something about him that just didn't sit right with me but I was hoping that it wasn't him though! There has got to be another book to this one! I honestly don't think that I can let go of Sophie and Spencer! The cover is also beyond stunning! Big thank you to Airicka for an ARC of Games of Fire and also to Amber for having me on the Blog Tour!

Author bio:

Airicka Phoenix is the best-selling author of the Touch Series with short stories in Whispered Beginnings: A Clever Fiction Anthology and Midnight Surrender Anthology. When she's not hammering away at the keyboard, she can be found banishing pirates or crawling through the attic looking for lost treasure with her kids. She loves baking, gardening and reading. She also likes to travel and take pictures of everything she comes across. When asked, Airicka describes herself as a sarcastic basket case that has an unhealthy addiction to chocolate, old movies and really bad jokes. She loves to laugh, make friends and write. If she could have one wish granted, it would be to spend one day as a fly-on-the-wall inside Stephen King's mind. If she could have two wishes granted, she would ask for a castle dedicated entirely to her overwhelming collection of books.
