Description

After the catastrophic events at the Homecoming Dance at the end of Burn for Burn, Lillia, Kat and Mary come face to face with the consequences of their actions - Reeve in the hospital. While Lillia and Kat begin to have reservations about moving forward with their revenge, Mary becomes convinced Reeve needs to get what is coming to him, no matter what. And as they agreed, each revenge plot needs to be completed. Lillia will make Reeve fall in love with her and then break his heart, just like he broke Mary's. But spending so much time with Reeve, pretending to fall for him, Lillia finds she her fake feelings start feeling very real. And as devoted as the girls are to seeing this through, their friendship starts to sag under the weight of their secrets. Is revenge really worth all of this?show more

Our customer reviews

(Source: I received a digital copy of this book for free on a read-to-review basis. Thanks to Simon & Schuster Books for Young Readers and Edelweiss.) This is book 2 in the 'Burn For Burn' series, and kicks off a few hours after the end of book 1 'Burn for Burn'. **Warning - some unavoidable spoilers for book 1 'Burn for Burn'.** Following the events of the dance, Reeve has ended up in hospital with a broken leg, and the girls are feeling a little guilty over what happened. Mary doesn't want this to interfere with their plan for revenge though, and once again the intended victim is Reeve. Can the girl's use Reeve's feelings for Lilia against him? What is this strange paranormal ability that Mary seems to have? And will Reeve ever feel sorry for what he did to Mary? This was an interesting second book, but it seemed quite long. Lilia, Kat, and Mary continued in this book the way they did in the first - planning ways to pay back the people who had wronged them. The major plan this time though was back to 'John Tucker Must Die' territory - get Reeve to fall in love with Lilia and then break his heart. I wasn't sure that this was a very good idea though, I would not have wanted to bet on Lilia being able to start a relationship with Reeve without her own feelings getting involved. The last book ended with a strange paranormal occurrence, and there didn't seem to have been much made of this in this second book, until right at the end. I did guess what was going on slightly earlier than Mary did, because the clues we got pointed directly to what was going on, and I did think that this paranormal element was handled pretty well all things considered. We were then left with another cliff-hanger at the end of this book which was unfortunate. I did think that this book was long. At over 500 pages, it was a really long book for the amount of stuff that actually happened, and I think a different author could probably have written this much more succinctly. It did seem to drag a bit in places, and I felt like we weren't getting where we were going fast enough, but I think part of that may be down to second book syndrome. There were a few surprises at the end, including an unexpected death, and I do want to read the third book in the series to find out what happens, although I do worry about how long the final book will be. Overall; an interesting second book, but felt a bit long. 7 out of 10show more

We are The Unofficial Addiction Book Fan Club, to know more about this book, go to the post in our website: http://theunofficialaddictionbookfanclub.blogspot.com/2013/07/fire-with-fire-burn-for-burn-2-by-jenny.html If you are interested, you can visit our website: http://theunofficialaddictionbookfanclub.blogspot.com The Unofficial Addiction Book Fan Club's Review: About The Book: What seemed like the perfect plan to achieve their revenge, take down the people who hurt them, didn't go as planned. Lillia, Kat and Mary are nervous for the incident in the Homecoming Dance. Despite the trouble they have caused, nobody has proofs that they were implicated in it. Though Reeve is beyond mad with Lillia and Rennie's meaner than ever with everybody. But sweet little Mary knows that she had something to do with the disastrous incident in the Homecoming Dance and that means that something is seriously wrong with her. If she's angry, someone gets hurt and these days, Mary seems to be full of anger. But the worst part is that she understands the sentence: between hate and love there's a thin line. She understands now that she's in love with her bully and that he does not love her back, because he's in love with Princess Lillia! Mary's now heartbroken and she her revenge seems to not be as successful as the three girls thought it should be. Reeve is recovering from the Homecoming Dance event and maybe even succeed in getting better. So they decide to start again. This time an eye for an eye, a broken heart for a broken heart. Reeve is going to feel the pain Mary's now feeling and Princess Lillia will help. Until the end. Review: If Burn for Burn was beyond amazing, Fire with Fire is freaking awesome. Finally we get to the romance and revenge mixture we've yearning from the first book. What we like is the fact that if you've read Burn for Burn and you start reading Fire with Fire, this new book is like not a day have happened between the two books. With the Homecoming Dance incident fresh in all the characters memory, the story keeps going just to get even messier than before! So let's start with Mary. This character in particular keeps blowing our mind off. We knew that something strange was going on with her, but we were not expecting, AT ALL, what we know now about her. At some point, she realizes that she's in love with Reeve, her bully when they were little, but she does not love her back. Even when she asks him in a Halloween party if he feels sorry for what he did to her, he just tells her to **** off. That's when the three girls, now friends, decide to finish what they started. Lillia is the key to destroy Reeve. Mary has seen Reeve around Lillia and she knows pretty well that he cares for Lillia like he has not care for a girl before. So imagine the sweet, sweet revenge it is for her if Mary could make Reeve feel what she feels every single day. Kat, on the other hand, tries to show Alex Lind what he missed by not being with her, but she does not caused the effect she expected. She tries to enter into a University and she embarks into a memory trip during the book. The authors introduce us into Kat's old story, the one involving her mother. In the course of this story, she is surprised by a character in the book. We didn't expect at all this turnout, but it was about time. However, we, deep down, knew that that would happen when things would get messy in Lillia's circle of friends. And Lillia... We were fond with this girl before, but now? We just love her! She's sweet and a good person. We get to know more about that night with the university boys that made her life a living hell and we get to see a romantic side of Lillia. It's beyond cute! We see, step by step, how her relationship starts to change and what started as a revenge is soon turn into something different. Something that makes Lillia feel like she's a bad person. If you thought that Rennie could not get even meaner than she was, you were wrong. She's a witch! Although we see a nice side of her during the book (almost the end), we could not like her, at all. So imagine our surprise at then end of the book when everything turns out really, really bad for her. We were so happy! We're expecting that moment from the first time we read about the new plan the girls had set in motion. Despite this, the real ending was quite disturbing. Not just for what happens to her, but what we discover of Mary. Disturbing, spooky and perturbing would be three accurate adjectives to describe the ending. Although we don't really mind what happens to Rennie, because the girl was not a character you fall in love with, we felt bad for the girls. This book, at least Mary's POV, was confusing. We really want to know more about her story and what is going to happen now, although we could get an idea (OMG, hope not!). But we not quite understand what is going on with her and her family. This book is as readable and entertaining, we'd venture to say that even more, as the first book. The authors have not loose they unique technique to make us a Burn For Burn addicts. Knowing Jenny Han's work and Siobhan Vivian's work, we knew this book would be beyond awesome, but even with that we don't quite arrive to describe it. They have shown us the three girls in this book as friends now, because what started as a healthy revenge, now is a revenge with capital letters and no matter what happens they'll have each other backs. Because if one goes down, all go down with her. It was exciting reading this book and we loved the revenge plots and plans and the unexpected situations they get themselves on. And, as we've mentioned before, we're glad to see some romanticism going on with our main characters. Although this is not the only new thing we have. Because we get a taste of the supernatural in the first book, but now this book starts to scream supernatural everywhere. At least in one of the POV. We'd like to end this review, Book Addicts, recommending this book to all of you. It's a wonderful, revengeful and incredible story. And if you've not read the first book... What are you waiting for? It'll blow your mind off! Thank you Edelweiss and Simon & Schuster for giving us this amazing ARC and for spreading Jenny Han & Siobhan Vivian's work. Because, now, we cannot live without knowing more about Lillia, Kat & Mary.show more
