Hi everyone! Welcome to my stop on the blog tour for Jennifer L
Armentrout's amazing book, Fire In You! I'll be doing a character interview
with Kristen Morgan, aka Brock's ex-girlfriend. Check it out below!
Hi Kristen! Thanks so much for
meeting with me today. I have a few questions to ask you, if you wouldn't mind
What attracted you to Brock in
the first place?
Brock is a sexy as hell MMA
fighter. All women are attracted to him.
What was your first impression
of Jillian when you saw at the bar?
Why would I pay any attention
to Jillian at the bar? We went to high school together, so I knew her before
that night. I was talking to Brock and I didn’t really even notice her.
Did you think you and Brock
would last forever?
What did you think when you saw
Jillian in Brock's office?
When I first walked into
Brock’s office, I was jealous. After I realized it was Jillian with him, I
couldn’t imagine that he would be interested in her.
What was going through your
head after Jillian had her accident?
I think everyone felt bad for
Jillian and I knew that Brock felt terrible about what happened to her.
In You, Jennifer L. Armentrout
For You series #6
Date: November 28th,
From the # 1 New York Times and International bestselling author
comes a richly moving story about heartbreak and guilt, second chances and
hope. Full of familiar, fan-favorite characters and no two people more
deserving of a happy ending, Fire In You will burn bright beyond the last page…
Jillian Lima’s whole world was destroyed in a span of a few hours.
The same night her childhood love, Brock ‘the Beast’ Mitchell, broke her heart,
her life was irrevocably altered by the hand of a stranger with a gun. It
takes six years to slowly glue together the shattered pieces of her life,
but Jillian is finally ready to stop existing in a past full of pain and
regret. She takes a job at her father’s martial arts Academy and she’s going
out on her first date since a failed relationship that was more yuck than yum.
Jillian is determined to start living.
She just never expected Brock to be a part of her life again. But
he’s firmly back in her life before she knows it, and not only is he older,
he’s impossibly more handsome, more teasing and more everything.
And when he sees Jillian, he’s no longer capable of thinking of her as the
little girl who was his shadow growing up or the daughter of the man who gave
him a second chance at life. He sees the woman who’d always been there for him,
the one person who believed in him no matter what.
Brock knows she’s the one he should’ve made his, and
what begins as a tentative friendship quickly turns to red-hot chemistry that
sparks a flame that burns brighter than lust. Falling for Brock again risks
more than her heart, because when the sorrow-filled and guilt-ridden past
resurfaces, and a web of lies threatens to rip them apart, the fallout could
lay waste to everything they’ve fought to build together, and destroy the
dreams of those they care most about.
*I’d like to thank Kelly Simon and InkSlinger PR for allowing me
to read and review an ARC copy of this book.*
Well, guys, we made it to the end of another series. Another group
of characters we’ve come to love and have to say goodbye to. And Jen did a
great job of giving closure to all the past couples, as well as the couple in
this book, Jillian and Brock.
We’d met Jillian and Brock in past books – Jillian was a young,
naïve girl who was the daughter of the man who owned Lima Academy, a successful
company that trains MMA fighters. We see her in Forever With You, where it’s
obvious she’s got a gigantic crush on Brock, who only saw her as a baby sister.
It was quite heart breaking to see that, as it didn’t look like Brock would
ever see Jillian as anything other than his “Jillybean”.
That Jillian is gone when we meet her in Fire In You. Six years
have passed since we’ve last seen her, and a traumatic and scary experience has
changed Jillian, and the outlook she has on life. She no longer has any contact
with Brock, and works in an insurance firm – going to work, coming home from
work, reading, watching Netflix, and going to sleep. Rinse and repeat.
She’s afraid to live life and it was so sad to read. Jen doesn’t
explain immediately what happened, just in little snippets, and it was
She decides to take a new position at her father’s academy, Lima
Academy, as it is a legacy and a part of her. Of course, who also happened to
have started working there? None other than Brock Mitchell, the man she was
desperately in love with, and whom she hasn’t seen in years. What starts out as
complete and utter avoidance slowly turns into a tentative friendship, and then
into something more.
“I loved you when I was eight. I loved you when I was twelve. I
loved you when I was twenty and I… I love you now.”
Brock was a mystery in the past books – all we knew was that he
was a famous MMA fighter, and an idol of Cam’s (from Wait For You). But we
delve much deeper into his past here – how he came from nothing but rose to
fame because of the belief Jillian’s father had in him. I loved how much he
cared for Jillian, and never forgot about her during the six years they were
And together, my God, these two were just sizzling! Even at the
start, when Jillian did her best to avoid Brock, you could practically taste
the sexual tension in the air. And, as its NA, this book does get quite hot and
kinky at times, but Jen writes it incredibly well.
I adored that all the past couples made appearances here too. Cam
and Avery have an adorable family together, Jase and Tess are making their
family bigger, and all the other past couples are loved up and/or married or
pregnant. It was the best way to get a smile on my face, even while reading
about Jillian's hardships.
“They all had their own struggles and stories to tell, and they
made it to this point, happy and in love.”
Just like the rest of the books in the series, it warms your
heart, puts this big goofy smile on your face, and all you can do is wish for
the characters' happily ever after. When this book comes out, get it! It will
take your breath away in the best way possible.
“Scars, whether physical or emotional, could be not just a
representation of survival but also a story of hope.”
