BOOK SUMMERY:

Bad girls burn hot…

Red is the color of Kia Alcott’s hair.
It’s her temper, which blazes hot and always gets Kia into way too much trouble.
And it’s the color of fire. Fires that Kia can start…just by thinking about them.

When her latest “episode” gets her kicked out of school, Kia is shipped off to her grandmother, who works for the wealthy Blackwoods. It’s an estate shrouded in secrets, surrounded by rules, and presided over by a family that is far from normal…including the gorgeous and insolent Ethan Blackwood.

Ethan knows far more about the dangers of the forest surrounding the estate than Kia can ever imagine. For this forest has teeth, and Ethan is charged with protecting the outside world from its vicious mysteries.

But inside, even the most vibrant shade of red doesn’t stand a chance against the dark secrets of the Blackwood family…

MY THOUGHTS:

This book wasn’t anything that I thought it would be, I enjoyed it much more than I thought I would. This was such a great concept and had so much potential. Alyxandra Harvey did a great job developing characters in this very imaginative story.

I liked that this book was a duel POV otherwise I don’t think I would like Ethan as much as I did. There was so much going on in his head and he was torn in what he believed/ wanted to do. Kia was very likeable and just trying to figure out what is going on inside of her and about the boy who likes in the house she is staying at, Ethan. I was not of fan of a couple characters; the author did a great job in making me dislike certain people.

One thing that was in the way of me fully enjoying this story was the fact that in the beginning I was very confused and thought I missed a huge chuck of the story. I think I might have reread the first 10% about five times, and nope I didn’t miss a thing. It wasn’t until the middle/end that I fully understood what was going on. I also felt as though the ending was a bit rushed, that was so much that went on in such a small amount of time. I think that these character’s stories are not finished yet! I hope to see maybe a series come out of this.
