[ARC] Review #35: Spitfire in Love

715m71CK1nLSeparatorsShe’s never at a loss for words. He’s determined to have the last one.
Kara Hawthorne never backs down, especially when it comes to protecting her family.

There he was with his piercing blue eyes and Lucifer black hair.
He was leaning against the wall, a lollipop in his mouth, hot as hell and twice as dangerous.

Cameron St. Laurent isn’t intimidated by the feisty woman at his doorstep. And when she asks him for the impossible, Cameron knows just how to sweeten the deal…

She looked so soft, harmless, like a pretty kitten, but she was as safe as a ticking time bomb.
My sweet, sweet Spitfire.

The two combustible personalities are faced with unavoidable off-the-charts chemistry. But when Cam’s dark past shows up, he’ll have to slay his demons and lay himself on the line to win Kara, body and soul.

Having read and loved Chasing Red, I was convinced that I would also love Ronin’s next big release, Spitfire In Love. However, I was very very wrong.

This book started out trying to pull a “relatable” moment, but that obviously didn’t go very well at all. In fact, all it did was prove that this book was probably not going to change much at all.

Kara as a character is contradictory. She can’t make up her mind about anything; saying one thing for a minute before changing her mind and stating something else. She dragged everything out. By that, I’m talking in reference to one topic only needing to be a few sentences long, but then lasting up to be the entire chapter.

Cameron is the stereotypical “bad boy with a sad past” character. And yet again, we have another character that drags things out. Not only that, but he also used blackmail against Kara to get what he wanted, manipulating her to do his bidding. On top of that, he was also domineering and barely let any of the other characters talk.

Other than the characters having barely any development throughout half of the book, the majority of events that occurred within it felt forced and unnecessary.

All in all, I was thoroughly disappointed with this book. For everything listed above, I rate this book 1 star. I don’t recommend it for fans of well-written romance books.
