Defeat the enemy. Win the boy. Live happily ever after. But life “ever after” isn’t as easy as it used to be. Harper’s gone from being a member of a small demon lair to co-Prime of one of the most powerful lairs in the US with a mate who, though hot as hell, is just a mite overprotective – I mean, you get kidnapped by dark practitioners just once …

Then one of Knox’s demons goes rogue, and in his madness decides Knox Thorne must die. Harper’s worried. Knox isn’t – at least until he discovers his mate’s willingness to get between him and danger.

Now, Knox has a new priority: Keep Harper safe …no matter what it takes. But Harper begins to suspect there’s more danger than one rogue demon. It seems the combined strength of Harper and Knox has upset the balance of power in the demon world and there are those who are determined to right that wrong. Because when you move up the food chain, sometimes the other predators just want to take a bigger bite.

Quick & Dirty: This urban fantasy/paranormal romance sequel to Burn continues with another action packed sex-filled romp. You’ll love it if you happen to like an uber macho Alpha man.

Opening Sentence: “Stop right there, bitch!”

Excerpt: No

The Review:

Blaze is the second novel in the Dark In You series by Suzanne Wright. I recommend that you read Burn first because it continues the story of Harper Wallis and Knox Thorne, the new power couple of Demon society, as their relationship continues to grow stronger. This review may contain some spoilers from book one so stop reading if you don’t want to know anything more.

Not much time has passed since the events in Burn happened, Harper is just getting comfortable with the life that she now has thanks to Knox. Harper is forced to get comfortable with the fact that she is now the co-Prime with Knox, a position that she didn’t realize would come from their relationship. Harper is now forced to plan a party for her being named co-Prime. A party that she is also equally uncomfortable with because she doesn’t like attention being pointed towards her.

While the party for Harper is being planned, a demon has turned rogue kidnapping Harper’s estranged mother. The rogue demon is claiming that he has seen a prophecy that Harper and Knox’s child will destroy the world in flames. Harper is a little uneasy about the prophecy even with Knox’s assurances that that it is impossible. While investigating the rogue demon, they find out that Isla’s plan to destroy all Primes is not over, someone else wants to continue with her plan. And to take out the Primes means they have to take out Knox, the most powerful first.

For the most part, I still really like Harper’s badassedness. She doesn’t give a shit what others think about her. She is trying to adjust to being a celebrity in the demon world but is still a bit embarrassed by it. She has no problem fighting her own battles much to the chagrin of Knox. My only complaint about Harper is that she is a bit of a bully in this novel. At first, I think it was for some humor and even when Harper had her suspicions about the person having ulterior motives, it just became mean. She was actually wanting to ruin this womans’ career just because she didn’t like her. Yeah she was a tattle-tale but Harper got too much of a kick out of embarrassing this woman and being straight up mean to her.

Knox is even more Alpha male in this novel. He would rather Harper be locked away so she is never hurt again but he knows doing that would end what makes her Harper, what makes her the woman he loves. Knox is also a bit more vulnerable because of loving Harper. His demon side just adds more to the possessiveness angle.

The mystery angle of the story kept me guessing as to who was pulling the strings of the rogue but the overall arc is still an unknown. Another potential relationship is revealed in this novel, I also really hope they get their own novel. Their interaction was pretty funny. The story still alternated between Harper and Knox’s third person views.

Overall, this is a story for fans of paranormal romance and urban fantasy alike. The story is very sexual at times while still having a mystery underlying the story line. If you like your stories a bit on the dark and sexy side, definitely try this series.

Notable Scene:

“People tend to ask what tattoos mean.”

And his sphinx was an extremely private person who gave very few people peeks of her soul. “Will you tell me what yours mean?”

“I got ‘So it Goes’ from Slaughterhouse Five to remind myself not to dwell on anything I can’t control – bad shit happens; it’s part of life. I got the little raven on my hipbone because I can relate to ravens; they’re tricksters, they think and strategize.”

Like her family, Knox thought. “What about the dragonfly on the nape of your neck?”

“They have a short lifespan and they’re very delicate, but neither of those things hold them back. I admire that. They’re master fliers, which I also fully admire.” And something she’d also envied until her own wings came to her. “What am I supposed to say when people ask why I have a thorny choker tattooed around my throat?”

“Only humans would need to ask. Demons will already know what it means.” They would see the thorns and know immediately that it was his brand of possession.
