Fighting His Fire (The Rock Gods Book 6)
by Ann Lister
Locked-down at a Los Angeles intervention facility, everyone around Dante Dupont and his Black Ice band mate, Ashton Lane, thought this would fix the issues between them. Dante and Ashton knew differently. What made this a hundred times worse was the fact they were stuck in this room together. They hadn’t shared space like this since the one afternoon they both wanted to forget. And, revisiting that nightmare was not an option . . . with or without the help of a therapist.
Two musicians. Same band. Afraid to admit their true feelings, being in close quarters again has them both at their breaking point. They say if you can’t stand the heat, get out of the kitchen, but neither of them can find a reason to leave, and fighting the fire is becoming more and more difficult to do.
Dante’s baggage isn’t pretty and his scars run deep, but Ashton might be the one to finally see beyond his past and help him find a way out from the smoke screen he’s spent his life hiding behind. In order to get there, though, they’ll both have to walk through the flames.
I must say… Ann did a fabulous job with this book! She truly had me from the very first page to the last!
When I started to read this book I had no idea what direction this book was going to go. It had a pretty powerful start.
Ashton and Dante were truly out of control with each other.
As I was reading… I kept thinking to myself. How is the author going to fix this to where we feel like they truly do like each other.
Because… They were off and on throughout most of the book.
Dante’s hot cold act was starting to get to me. He always seemed to make Ashton feel horrible by stopping and freezing him out at the worst possible time.
He really had a hard time opening up to Ashton. Which to a certain degree is understandable.
But… I think Dante should have known better that Ashton would never hurt him.
And Ashton was a go with the flow kind of guy. He would get angry. But at the same time knew when to give Dante space.
One thing I felt with both of them was that they both could have communicated a little better. There was a lot of guessing what the other was thinking or feeling and not a lot of asking or talking.
Which would lead to misunderstandings. ( I hate that in books)
I enjoyed Dante and Ashton together. The sex between them was pretty explosive and destructive (to bathrooms!…lol)
I loved it!
I felt some things felt rushed in this book like the whole attack on Ashton. That happened so late in the book and I felt it needed more info about it all.
This book deals with a pretty heavy topic. Dante had to deal with past in order to move forward with Ashton. I felt the author did a good job with that issue. It was pretty sad to read. But I’m glad Dante had Ashton to help him through it all.
Overall… I really enjoyed this book! I loved reading about all the other characters from past books. It just all makes it seem like they are all family.
I can’t wait to read the next book in this series!
