Serious now, I think this will be good, he can even be faithful instead of getting tons of blow jobs at the same time he is demanding no other guy touches her. when it comes to the // romance and chemistry // i just didn't feel it here especially in the beginning and especially when they started to emotionally connect, he goes and sleeps with Melanie. also, i didn't really get why Grace started hating on West when he literally said one sentence to her the first time they met. in fact, she had more reason to hate on Reign aka West's asshole friend. The book takes place in both Italy and the US. It also takes place in present day and during WWII. We have two narrators, two points of view, and two stories that do come together in the end. In the second thread of the novel we are introduced to the Todesco family, particularly Lorenzo, an aspiring violinist. It is 1938 and the weight of fascist change is slowly descending on Italy's Jews like the Todescos.

Playing with Fire by Tess Gerritsen | Goodreads

Grace and West are a dream, a goal, and an ideal. Their paths are chaotic, crumbled, and filled with shadows but when they merge and become one- it is breathtaking. When L.J. Shen says she is writing something so different from what she has ever written, take her word for it and then some. Playing With Fire is nothing short of GRACE AND WEST ARE PERFECT, PURE PERFECTION YOU GUYS. BY FAR THE MOST WHOLESOME BOOK I’VE EVER READ. Playing With Fire is an outstanding book with amazing characters and a beautiful message. It's a story that shows you you can walk through fire and rise from the ashes, that you can overcome what you went through and come out on top, better than before. It's a story about living life to the fullest. It's about finding your person and letting that person show you you're worth everything, that you're beautiful inside and out no matter what you've been through, no matter what you did.Source: I received a digital copy of this book for free on a read-to-review basis.

This is a story set in two time frames, modern day and Venice just before the Second World War. I loved the easy transition between past and present in the story. The characters are interesting and well developed and the plot was just music to my ears. I seem to be alone among many reviewers who loved this book but it just didn’t work for me. The writing was great with some beautiful descriptive passages of Venice and the author is obviously extremely talented. I would like to read one of her previous books at some time to get another taste of her writing. She takes it home along with the gifts for her husband and 3-year-old daughter, their long-awaited and much-loved child. She plays the waltz for the first time one afternoon and is frightened by what seems to be its evil influence. No one can ever say that Shen pulls her punches. Playing With Fire is an explosive one-two combo of perfection and pure excellence! Grace and West were absolutely incredible. Two damaged people hiding from themselves and their pasts who find one another and the strength to face their fears and traumas.

What folks are saying about FIRE

I got up and scooped her up, giving people something to look at and talk about for years in this godforsaken town, pressing a dirty kiss to her lips and almost breaking her jaw in the process. Sometimes a book finds you when you don’t even know you needed. Sometimes the theme developed is something you needed to hear when the world feels like it weighs a ton on your shoulders. Playing with Fire by LJ Shen was the book I didn’t even know I needed.

L.J. Shen decided to play with my heart in Playing With Fire. And I am surrendering without fight. Because there is no way to escape the lethal emotions in this small town romance. It was a breathtaking mix of intense feels. My heart has been taken over by this angsty, inspiring and unique romance. She wrote about some truly unique, inspiring and riveting things here.The scene then changes to the story of Lorenzo, the composer of the sheet music, and his life in Nazi occupied Italy. Oh what a tragic life he lived. His story was such an emotional read, that my heart went out to him and his family. Playing with fire is such a sweet surprise. It is different, it is fresh, and it's the kind of love story that consumes you. All you fans of Leigh's AH heroes, do not fear. West St. Claire is the depiction of her usual heroes, only better! He is something else and you will love him and feel so much for him and Grace as well. She was such a breath of fresh air. I loved how she gave West as good as she got and that even though there was a lot of hiding due to her situation, she still showed so much strength and in the end she really was a phoenix rising from the ashes and it was beautiful to watch that whole journey! I don't know what I expected after reading the blurb and seeing the cover. But I certainly didn't expect THIS KIND OF POWERFUL WRITING. L.J. Shen didn't hit my feels like this like forever. Probably since Broken Knight. And that's something considering I sobbed through that book and pretty much the same thing happened here. West and Grace stripped me raw and left the wires of my messed up emotions exposed. I am feeling all sorts of overwhelming things. This heartbreaking yet incredibly motivating story of two broken people was one of the best angsty romance I have ever read. They have burrowed deep inside my heart. I cried for their pain. I am awed by their strength and resilience. I laughed for their happiness. I was into this journey with them. This was not a love story. It was a life story. They became unlikely friends. And then inevitable lovers. Their love was their healing mantra. Love tested them, destroyed them and rebuilt them from the ashes of their past. It was so beautiful. So epic. So pure. So intense. Everything I could want from a great love story. The story opens with violinist Julia Ansdell purchasing an old music book from an antique shop in Rome. Inside the book, she discovers a loose sheet of paper that has a handwritten waltz by someone named L. Todesco.
