This is book 1.5 in the FIERCE series, and it's a retelling of book 1 from Hunter's POV with lots of unique, previously undiscovered scenes!

Would you risk everything for love?

Life has held nothing but hardships for Hunter Bane. Growing up with a learning disability wasn't easy, especially when you're poor. With only his brother to support him, Hunter clings to the short moments of happiness in life. Like when he meets Autumn Blakewood.

Autumn Blakewood is a geek at heart. Reading is her passion, and she can't spend one day without her books. She's always locked up in her room studying, trying to avoid trouble. Until Hunter comes into her life.

Hunter can't resist the temptation to get closer to Autumn. She is his complete opposite, and yet he's drawn to her in ways he can't explain. But when his brother is caught dealing drugs and sent to prison, Hunter's world shatters.
To save his brother, Hunter has to join the gang he's feared his entire life. Now he's forced to choose between his family and the one girl he loves. Fighting for both, his fury is all he needs…



"I received this as an ARC and let me say I freakin' loved it. Hunter Bane is Smokin!! I don't often enjoy books that are purely in the male POV but this one was fantastic. Looking forward to more Hunter and Autumn!" -- Michelle N.

"I was looking forward to reading fierce but when I finally did I was emensly blown away." -- Azra

"OMG!!! I received an arc for an honest review. I started reading earlier today and couldn't stop. I loved this book. You really feel for Hunter, and how he tries to do the right thing. I thought I loved Fierce, but Fury is by far my favorite. I just loved hearing Hunter's side." -- Gwenny

Fury 4.5 out of 5 based on 0 ratings. 15 reviews.

Fury by Clarissa Wild is Fierce told from Hunter's POV. Although I usually skip the re-reads, I read this one to be sure I didn't miss anything that would be integral to the rest of the series. (I should have skipped it.) I was disappointed in this one because, although the story is the same, I was unable to connect this Hunter to the Hunter from Fierce. They just didn't match up for me. Neither does the timeline. In the pro column, though, it is a very quick read. It is well written. Either Fierce of Fury, I didn't need both.

I really enjoyed Fierce from Autumn's POV, but Fury is brilliant! This isn't just the same story, it's a completely different story surrounding the same events. So don't expect to just read the same story from Hunter's perspective, because this book is so much more than that. I don't often get the chance to read a book from the male POV or the opposite as the original. But I find that it fills in a lot of things you never realized you wanted to know and answers questions you didn't get around to asking. I felt like this book was very easy to get absorbed in. The chemistry between Autumn and Hunter takes on a whole new level. Hunter's struggle, the reasons behind his actions, his thought processes, just make him a deeper more real character. This book completes the entire story of Fierce. I prefer to have two books, one in each POV rather than switching between them in one book. This is a perfect companion to Fierce. I highly recommend reading this book if you loved Fierce! Rating: 4.5 out of 5

For some reason from page 147 to the end of the book were one on top of the other, couldn't read anything. I know this was Bane's story but I would have liked to have read it.

I was given the book is exchange for an honest review. This is 1.5 in the Fierce series by Clarissa Wild. The first one in the series is Called Fierce. This is book is the same story but told from Hunters POV instead of Autumn’s. I think I liked this book more than the first one. You get to read Hunter’s take on everything. I especially liked getting to find out all that he went through and more about how his brother joined the gang. For me the story was so much more powerful from Hunter’s POV. You find out just how much he tried to stay away from Autumn. How much he goes through trying to fight what he feels for her to protect her. How little he thinks of himself. Also how much Autumn means to him, how much better she makes him feel about himself. Most book you only get the girls take on things. I love when books are from the guys POV. I think it makes the book so much better. You rarely get to know how much the guy truly feels about the girl in the book. I can’t wait for the next one in this series to come out.

I received an ARC of this book in return for an honest review. I will admit I had some misgivings about this book when I received it for review. I enjoyed reading Fierce and was worried that like some books written in the other main characters POV this would simply be a retelling of book 1. Clarissa Wild blew me away. I liked Hunter in Fierce, after reading Fury I'm totally in love with him. The story line explained so many questions that I had left over from Fierce. Why Hunter did the things he did (beyond just trying to help his brother), why he acted like he did, his problems with learning. Everything in Fury made me love the characters even more. It gave me a completely different way of looking at the storyline. You definitely want to read Fierce first. I highly recommend both of these books! Also, here is a link to my review for book one Fierce in case anyone in interested. http://www.amazon.com/review/R2Y4KRJ7G4827T/ref=cm_cr_rdp_perm

Fury (Fierce #1.5) by Clarissa Wild 5 out of 5 Stars Wow, how a change of POV REALLY changes a story! Fury is Fierce told from Hunter's point of view, but it is SOOO much more than that! It's his life, his experiences, and his struggles as a child/man living with the consequences of a mother's choice and shouldering the responsibly of keeping his family together. I couldn't put this book down once I picked it up! Once I realized this was just a POV swap I was honestly disappointed and thought I'd be bored stiff the entire time, but I was sooo wrong! Hunter Bane is such a heart wrenchingly beautiful man who is raw and broken, tough and vicious, tender and compassionate all inside an animal who likes to hunt his prey, which happens to be a sassy, sweet, nosey, insanely brave, virginal Autumn Blakewood. Needing someone to trust, someone to turn to for comfort, he allows himself to lean on her. She on the other hand is looking for that someone who will allow her to fully feel alive, to know what it's like to be wanted, to be touched, to be something other than the “good girl”. This yearning and longing to be fully accepted was realized the moment they truly saw each other. Obviously some of the scenes will be similar but there is sooo much more in this book that you don't have to worry about rereading or feeling cheated as you do with some books. The majority of this book is entirely new material that opens your eyes to the activities of the gang, Jessie, Hunter's dealings with the police, and his feelings and reservations about “Leafy.” Ms. Wild really did a fantastic job with this book and I can't explain how much just changing the POV did for this story! It has such depth of character and adds such strength to the story that it's just amazing!! I would recommend this book to every reader I come across!! **A complimentary copy was given in exchange for an honest review** Pepper, My Secret Book Spot

Read Book 1 & was excited to know that she was writing Hunters POV. Review to follow once I finish the book today :) Oh my GOSH!!! Finally finished the book and all I can say is WOW. There were definitely some things about Hunter that I was not expecting to learn and it just made me LOVE him even more. Hunter is such a scarred teen that only wants to make it in this world and do good by his brother. All he needed was to find that one special person that would make him better and help to keep him on the right track. Thankfully he was able to find that with Autumn. She helped to change him for the better and now he will be getting everything back he ever wanted in life. CANNOT wait for the next installment in this series as I am eager to find out what Clarissa has in store for them next.

If you've read "Fierce" by Clarissa Wild, then you'll recognize these characters in "Fury". This is told from Hunter's POV... and, let me tell you... his point-of-view is fantastic ;) It's amazing being in his head.  He's a very complex guy.  You definitely cannot judge person, because you really never know what someone is going through in life. Autumn/Leafy is such a favorite character of mine :) she's feisty, sweet, caring, seemingly awkward, a bookworm (not bad things).   Hunter is drawn to her.   She is drawn to Hunter. I'm not going to give any spoilers.  As I say in most of my reviews that I post, I want you to be able to experience this book for yourself ;) I will say that Clarissa Wild has written a wonderful story here (with both Fierce and Fury). These characters are likable (although frustrating at times).  They're also multi-layered, have a lot going on behind the scenes that the onlookers have no idea about. This book made me happy, sad, impressed, excited, scared, shocked... It really is a great story.  If you haven't read this series yet, I highly recommended it. Fierce is book 1, Fury is book 1.5, and it appears a following boom is in the works. Five stars :)

While Fierce was an amazing read, it left me with so many questions. So much of the story revolves around Hunter’s actions and the situation he is forced into, but we see it all from Autumn’s POV. I liked Hunter, but I couldn’t understand how he could possibly have gotten involved with the illegal frat or how he could so easily do all of the terrible things they made him do. Turns out, it wasn’t so easy. I loved Hunter’s voice. We see his relationship with his brother, which lays the foundation for all of the things he takes on throughout the book. We hear his inner struggle as he does things he swore he would never do in the name of saving his brother. We watch as he faces his demons when the frat asks him to do something that hits a little too close to home. We finally get to experience his thoughts, his moral compass, his desperate fight to keep the best thing that has ever happened to him safe. Fury allows us to see Hunter as a complicated and complete character. I promise you’ll love him more for it. Clarissa Wild did an amazing job of growing her character, showing new sides of him and giving him a voice worth listening to. She showed incredible growth as a writer in Fury and did a wonderful job of further developing a rather complex storyline and adding new elements as we get to see the frat from the inside. She took us inside Hunter’s head and gave up a glimpse into his heart, expertly completing the story she began in Fierce. She made us feel for him. Fury takes Hunter and Autumn’s story to a whole new level and was exactly the refreshing and emotional journey I hoped it would be.

I was gifted a copy from the author in exchange for my honest review, so here it is. Fury is Hunter's POV from Fierce. He is a cocky fighter with a heart of gold. He falls for Autumn Blakewood, she is the nerd girl and he can't stop his feelings for her. When his brother is caught dealing drugs and is sent to jail, Hunter will do what he can to help get his brother out, including joining the gang that got his brother caught. In this POV we learn why Hunter is fighting and what he would do for family. While Hunter relies on his fury and anger to deal with most things, Autumn is what helps him to survive. If you read Fierce and loved it, you will love this one more, I sure did. Clarissa Wild knows how to tell a story to keep you on the edge of your seat until the very end.

Different POV, another excellent story I loved Fierce which was shown from Autumn's perspective, well this is the same story, same time line from Hunter's perspective, I wasn't sure whether I was going to like this as much but I like it more. There is so much going on in a Hunters life with his brother Jesse and all the problems with the gangs etc that to see it from the inside is so much more emotional than seeing it from Autumns's outside point of view.  I liked Hunter in Fierce but in Fury I don't only like him I have really come to respect him for what is is fighting against and for, to see his troubles firsthand made me really understand what some people have to go through.  Still liked Autumn or Leafy, and once again even more so as she came to love Hunter for who he was, not what  he did or what he was, like Hunter we experience Leafy almost looking into his soul and finding something there that Hunter himself didn't know existed but in a way it was the saving of him. You could experience how having Leafy around grounded Hunter in a way that he didn't know he needed but in the end helped save him. Jaret who was a very minor character in Fierce had a more visible role in this book but the main role was  Hunter and you will fall for him, language, fighting and all even more in this book, just as I did. You don't need to have read Fury first but I think it helps as Fury fleshes everything out whereas this focuses almost solely on Hunter.  I received a free copy for an honest review.

Firstly I have to say this was a freebie from the author herself so because of that, I'm going to be totally honest and probably super critical ;-) Hunter....what a big bundle of chuckles he was!! Chuckles...Hunter did a lot of chuckling. The more I say it, the more it makes me...well ermmm chuckle! I asked a fellow reader how old did she think Hunter and Leafy are in the book and she thought 17/18 so I'm going to along the lines of that being their age group.  Hunter has spontaneous erections every time he sees Leafy. I haven't been 17 for a few years, but I'm sure I didn't walk round with an almost permanent stiffy. My wife is the most beautiful woman I have ever seen, yet I manage to control myself, most of the time ;-) Maybe it is because a female wrote this book and most females would like to believe that we see a pretty girl and immediately tent!! Trust me ladies, we don't lol This book was far better than Fierce, so if you liked that book, you're going to love this. Ms Wild has really focussed on filling in the gaps and delving deep into Hunter's character. It was a far better read than Fierce, far more detailed. Oooh eck I have a lot of "fars" in this! *chuckles* It must be pretty hard for a female to write from a male POV, and vice versa, but I think Ms Wild did a really good job. She didn't make Hunter too effeminate yet managed to show his vulnerable side, his fears and his love for his brother. I actually changed my opinion on Hunter after reading this book. Book one, he came across as a bit of a rebel, a fighter, a bad boy. But in Fury, you got to see what and why he was doing the things he did and he actually wasn't a big tough guy. He was doing those things for his family and didn't actually like doing them. In fact, he pretty much got his arse kicked everytime there was a fight!! I rated Fierce a 4* and I give this book an extra star because it is a much better book. Maybe that's because Ms Wild wrote it so well, maybe because she developed the characters so well, maybe because being inside a blokes head is so much more interesting ;-) Who knows!! Congratulations Ms Wild, on a 5* book.  This is my honest opinion! *chuckles*

This is the alternate POV of the book Fierce, told from Hunter's POV. This, to me, was a much better book. The storyline was sharper. The character development was interesting. The things we find out about Hunter's life and his situation and problems etc were explained, which filled in the gaps we had in the first book. I liked how I had an opinion of Hunter in book one which actually changed quite a lot in Fury. This is NOT a re-write of Fierce. This is a proper POV switch which tells, almost, a whole new story. I don't want to give any spoilers so all I would say is if you loved Fierce, you will certainly love Fury. I did.

A story a new from Hunter view. Another great job by the author.  I love the aspect of having the story like new from Hunters view point. Makes me wonder how much of this stuff really happens on a collage campus because it's very realistic. Once again the interplay between Autumn (Leafy)  and Hunter is superb. Well written and very captivating story. Very entertaining and enjoyable to read with additional surprises  compared to the first book. Great Job.  I received this free copy for an honest review.

This book is told from Hunter Banes point of view. We learn more about his life prior to college, about his brother whom is his whole world basically. We learn why he is fighting and why he is involved in this drug blowout.  We also hear from his point of view on how he met and fell so deeply inlove with Autumn Blakewood < His Leafy> Hunter comes across to all who know him as this BAD BOY with a huge chip on his shoulder but in this book we learn why he is how he is. The first book Fury was Autumns point of view and I have to say I wasn't thrilled with it as it was slow to grow. But with Fury everything comes to a understanding for me and I JUST LOVED this book !! Clarissa Wild has definitely got a New Fan. I would definitely recommend this book to everyone I know. It is a book series told in a POV but this concept is one I adore and This book brings back to me why I like  POV books !!! Clarissa rocked it with Fury !!!!
