Publisher's Summary

JamesonLife is hard. I learned that at an early age growing up on the South Side of Chicago. I accepted it, even came to expect it. With a sister who was a constant source of worry and a track record of losing anyone even remotely close to me, trouble seemed to follow me no matter where I turned.

Some people were born lucky. I was just born.

That’s what I used to believe, anyway, until GQ. The gorgeous guy in the fancy clothes who for some reason decided to look twice at me. He gave me a place to call my own, a space to feel safe, and he made me believe in the impossible—that love was more than just a four-letter word.

RyanLife is unexpected. I learned that just recently when I walked into a bar on the South Side and found the love of my life—Jameson Clarke.

He’s everything I’ve always wanted and yet somehow even better than I imagined. He’s brave, brash, protective of those he loves, and under all that bravado is a vulnerability that calls to my very soul.

Jameson’s a storm cloud, but he thinks I’m the sun. If that’s true, then I’m determined to break through the shadows of his past and steal his heart the way he’s stolen mine.

Wicked Flame is book two in Ryan Carrigan and Jameson Clarke's story and should be listened to after Wicked Heat.

Really Good!

Great conclusion to GQ and Jameson's story. There wasn't any angst, just these two men really getting to know each other and fall in love as Jameson let his walls down and let Ryan in. It was sweet, had some great emotion, and put a huge smile on my face with the fabulous HEA! I loved seeing some of our favs from the Chicagoverse again too! Nick J. Russo did a really good job bringing their love story to life!

There was no wicked claim in this story

Awesome plot twist did not exist . There was no climax to the story . There were several places in the book where one could have been put in.. All of the contents that was in this storyCould have been put in the 1st book.. At the end of the story the only thing I felt was that the author has become greedy . She was 1 of my favorite authors.. Now I think I'm going to choose to not follow her on on kindle anymore

Good story. Good narration.

Some of the issues that I didn't like in the first book were resolved in this, second book. I recommend reading/listening to the first two Chicago Heat books like they are one very long book.

There are a few very emotional moments that tugged at me, so I definitely felt some connection to the characters. I would like to see Ryan's character developed a bit more. The romance between Jameson and Ryan had all the requisite sweet and steamy moments. The social commentary was insightful. I still have a few questions about the end of this book, but I suspect that the next duet might answer some questions.

Overall an entertaining romance read with good narration. Nick J. Russo seemed like a much better fit for this series than the previous narrator.

DNF

The narrator's cadence is like nails on a chalk board. I had to up the speed just to get to chapter 3. I'm not going to make it to chapter 4. Sad. I'm a fan of the author. Buying this audiobook was an automatic must.
*sigh* This is one I'll have to read myself to get a true feel for the book.

Wonderful Ending

This was a great ending to this duology insofar as the story goes, but felt it really was unnecessary to put in a separate book. I love me some Nick J. Russo and I have many, many audiobooks of his, but it really bums me out when there is a narrator change from one book to the next. Regardless, the audiobook was great and I encourage buying it as you will enjoy it.
