Fire That Unites

Book Blurb:

All Josie wants is to keep the man she loves safe. And stop the truth-knife from stabbing her soul.

Neither of these goals is happening.

After a harrowing escape from fire dragons, Josie ends up making a deal with the one man she shouldn’t—her ice dragon ex, Rafe. He’s willing to protect Oliver and her if she helps him stop the horrors of the Arcane Market. And she has to put up with his not-so-secret desire to win her back.

On top of that, her truth-knife has decided to turn on her. Suddenly every lie Josie speaks inflicts searing pain on her heart. How’s a woman supposed to guard her rogue fire elemental mate without lying?
Especially when he keeps getting beat up just for existing.

Caught between her icy-hot ex, her irrepressible mate, and the agony of her blade, Josie’s ready to do the one thing she can’t.
Even if it costs her safety.
And her life.

Buy now and enjoy a humorous paranormal romance with a side of action and twisty plot. Features a sensible firebird shifter with a feisty side, a rascally fire elemental with a tragic side, and an ice dragon who hoards antiques. Clean PG-13 - there's heat, danger, and fighting, but nothing graphic.

My Review:

Fire That Unites is the second book in The Arcane Market Adventures series by Janeen Ippolito, and it's the second half of firebird-shifter Josie and fire-elemental Oliver's story. Josie has trust issues and doesn't easily reach out to others for help in trying to protect Oliver. Lots of magical characters want him dead. Oliver, her mate, is patient with Josie but even he gets frustrated at her keeping secrets from her friends. And Josie sometimes uses lies as a line of defense, but her truth knife doesn't let her get away with it.

When danger comes at them from several sides, Josie has to accept help. She first makes a deal with her ice-dragon ex, Rafe, but his motives are unclear. It's a little messy adding an ex-boyfriend to a new relationship. Will Rafe behave around Oliver, and did he ever truly love Josie?

The end leaves enough open for the next book, which will follow a new couple, Rafe and Oliver's sister. Sometimes there are too many characters to keep track of. It's important to read the other books in the series first or you will get lost. It's good fun romantic fantasy with some deeper moments.
