"What matters most is how you walk through the fire." ~ Charles Bukowski

No longer simmering and crackling beyond our realm, the fire smoldering in the distance roars to life. The blaze has the capacity to scorch and destroy everything and everyone in its path.

All that I've known and believed was obliterated the moment Madeline spoke a truth I'd never suspected. With one sentence, one plea, my life has taken an uncharted turn. Through the smoke and soot, I search for answers.

A man, an outfit, and my brothers-in-arms have been my solace, my calling, and my reason to live. Now that I know there's more, what will the future hold?

The Ivanov bratva wants Chicago. I want what they possess. With the Sparrow world at war, and Madeline's declaration, she and I are surrounded, trapped by the inferno.

What will remain when the flames cease and we are left surveying the ashes?

From New York Times bestselling author Aleatha Romig comes a brand-new dark romance, FLAME, set in the dangerous world of Sparrow Webs. You do not need to read the Web of Sin or Tangled Web trilogy to get caught up in this new and intriguing saga, Web of Desire.

FLAME is book two of the WEB OF DESIRE trilogy that began in SPARK and concludes in ASHES.

Flame 4.6 out of 5 based on 0 ratings. 7 reviews.

Not quite as gripping as book 1...until the twisty twists!! So I wasn't quite as enthralled with this one as Book #1, but I did like knowing what happened to Maddie even though it was painful to read. And oh my - full of more twists and turns that spin you right around!! Seeing Patrick struggle with the push/pull between loving Madeline and not trusting her hurts your heart as does learning about their past and such pure young love. So it's hard to describe without giving too much of the finds away, but if you felt a spark in Book 1 - you will definitely see it catch on flaming fire in Book 2. This picks up right where Book 1 ended, so you don't miss a thing. Although I haven't read all of the series and I loved Kader. I think Patrick may be my favorite. "With a spark in his blue eyes, he'd resurrected a flame." Can't wait for the conclusion to this trilogy!! I voluntarily requested and read an advance reader copy.

Flame is second part of the Web of Desire series it's Patrick Kelly and Madeline Trent Kelly's explosive story. They had chemistry when they were living on the streets eighteen years ago and that attraction is as strong as ever. Do you remember playing with string as one of your first games growing up, where each pluck gives you a different outcome, that is what this part of the story reminds me of, one long attached string that can be shaped into an oval, square, triangle, and a circle. Life comes full circle but with one heck of a cliffhanger! OMG, I need Ashes, need answers stat!

I feel like I always repeat myself during my Aleatha Romig reviews but I can’t help it. SHE DOES NOT DISAPPOINT!!! Picking up right from the end of book one, and it hits the ground running. I loved every minute of it and cannot wait for the conclusion to Patrick and Madeline’s story.

Oh my gosh I couldn't wait for this book to come out and now I can't wait for the final book in this trilogy!!! Patrick couldn't believe what Madeline had told him but could he trust her? That's what it comes down to right? I absolutely love Patrick, he's fierce, a force to be reckoned with and will do whatever it takes for those that he loves. When he's the one that needs help he has his "brothers" with him doing everything that he can. When he learns for the reasons that Madeline was who she was with, he wants to burn the world down. He wants to be able to change it all but will have to be satisfied with changing the now. Is he going to be able to do that? Will he be able to do what needs to be done in time?

The WEB OF DESIRE Trilogy is Patrick Kelly and Madeline's story, book one left us with a major cliffhanger and this book picks up right where that one left off. There is a reason the series title is called WEB OF DESIRE and it's not only because of the chemistry that Patrick and Madeline have it's because of all of the twists and turns the story takes which is making quite the web, like a spiders web if you will. But at the end who will be caught in it, who will make it out and who will be eaten alive. I really don't like giving spoilers in my reviews so this is going to be a short one because there is so much going on in this book I am afraid I may let something unintentionally slip. So with that being said, this trilogy must be read in order otherwise you will have no idea why certain things are happening in this book. We are also left with another cliffhanger, this one I figured out only a couple of pages before the shoe dropped. But I was still left with the OMG what an ending! reaction because it's just that good! If you enjoy dark romances, romantic suspense, or organized crime romances I highly recommend this book as well as the Web of Sin Trilogy and the Tangled Web Trilogy. Happy Reading!!! **I have voluntarily reviewed an Advanced Readers Copy of this book for my Blog, Nadine's Obsessed with Books**

I was so ready for this after the ending of book 1, Spark. Now obviously I can’t tell you too much, because I don’t want to give any spoilers. But let me say how good this author is at leaving a trail of bread crumbs through her story to keep you going. There’s just enough that your curiosity is fed, but there’s always that little bit more you need to know, you have to know what happens next and how everyone is connected, and what in the characters’ pasts led them to where they are now and the decisions they’ve made up to this point. If I’d had a whole day to just sit and read, well, I’d have been done with this in less than a day, because I couldn’t put it down! Every bit I was like, okay, just to the end of this chapter, then we’d get there, and there was another one of those tidbits of info that I needed to know more and so I’d tell myself just one more chapter, and so on and so on. As I got closer to the end, I thought I could see what twist the story was taking and where we were going to be left to fight in the third and final book, Ashes, which doesn’t come out till April. But then, even with another little knowledge bomb dropped that I’d had a suspicion about, the twist the story took was not at all what I’d seen coming. And once again, I’m left hanging, and waiting, mostly patiently, for the next book and the conclusion to this dark, edge of your seat trilogy.

Book two of Patrick and Madeline's story hits the ground running and keeps you on edge with every turn of the page. Be prepared to be taken on an intense and gripping ride that is filled with plenty of drama, intrigue and one heck of an emotional punch. As each secret is exposed or when another twists blindsides you, your heart will seriously hurt for these two. Fair warning there is another stunning cliffhanger ahead and a wait for book 3.
