Fire, Inescapable #3 by A.M. Rose

I have been loving the Inescapable series by author duo A.M. Rose and Fire is no different!

From the blurb:

Fire is a racing prodigy. Well on his way to stand shoulder to shoulder with the best ones in history. His expectations of the new season were to train, race, and win, not to nosedive into the ground and injure his wing.

Forced to miss the rest of the season, he’s sent to schmooze with the rich and famous to stay in the limelight and keep the attention on himself. So he schmoozes. And wishes he could be literally anywhere else.
Until he walks in.
Nose in the air, disdain on his face, and secrets wrapped around him like an expensive suit.
Just figures Fire’s mate would be the most pompous little brat ever. On the plus side, riling him up should be fun, right?

Rio is a priority. He’s the main character. It’s what he’s used to and he will settle for nothing less than red carpets softening his every step.
He lives for the attention and drama, dreaming of a mate who will understand that Rio’s taste is impeccable and he just knows best.
Enter his mate.
Who disagrees with Rio every step of the way, makes him question everything he thought he knew about himself, but most of all, makes all the skeletons from his past resurface
So why doesn’t Rio mind it as much as he probably should?

Jacqueleen the Reading Queen's Review:

"The poshest, most pompous, most beautiful man he had ever come across...was his damn mate.


Ever since that little sneak peak at the end of Still I have been dying for this book. It's the first time we have a book that isn't set around the original group of Krilla we've been introduced to so far. A few of the old MCs pop up in cameos, but most of the book takes place in a different setting. It was fun meeting new characters along with getting to know these new MCs. Fire was right in his assessment of his mate. Rio most definitely is posh...and pompous...and extremely easy to rile up. I couldn't stop laughing every time Fire was able to ruffle his mate's feathers, like when he decides to take him on a date that just so happens to be at a location his upper class mate wouldn't normally be caught dead in.

"First time here. He can't believe his luck. He loves gardens. And bugs. Can't get enough of them."

I think Fire was exactly what Rio needed in his life. He pushed him off his pedestal, introduced him to new experiences. Fire reminded Rio what real family was supposed to be like, not the cold and conditional experience he lived in with his grandparents. I did want to wack Rio upside the head at some points though. He has this mate who adores him, yet he can't seem to get out of his own way. Is living a manufactured and posh lifestyle really that much more alluring then the love of a true mate? Fortunately, Rio figures out that answer for himself, though not without some hurdles to fly over so to speak.

As with the previous book, we get a sneak peek at the end of this one into the next. I'm so excited who the next MC is going to be, though I thought for sure it was going to be another flyer we had met briefly named Zero. Our next MC seems like he's a bit of a spit fire from what we've seen of him so far. The book is another human/Krilla pairing and I cannot for the life of me remember if we've met this Krilla before or if he's someone new. I guess I'll figure it out when it's released!
