Temper the Flame by Jade Church

My Rating: 2 stars


A curse. A betrayal. A love that could break her.

When Ivy is taken to a compound outside of London to meet with a group of angels, she thinks she’s going mad. Faced with the truth of powers she never knew she had and a world much bigger than she realised, her life couldn’t be more complicated. Or so she thought. When Devlin crashes into her life, Ivy must decide what is more important: finding the love, passion and adventure she’d never allowed herself to dream about, or protecting her heart. She could have everything she never knew she wanted… if she only dared to let someone in. Caring makes us vulnerable, but when everything Ivy believes is pushed to the limit, who will be by her side to see her through the dark?

My Review:

Oh what a disappointment! This book had so much potential. It started off great but there was little to no character development. Everything happened in a short period of time and then suddenly there is a 6 month gap.

Throwing in Hades as a character was just odd. There is no reference to the fact he is from Greek Mythology he’s just an ancient figure that controls the Underworld.

The writing was good and there was great splashes of humor but the story unraveled and characters disappeared with no resolution and new characters were thrown in at the end. Sex was also thrown in with little to do with the plot.

I received an arc of this book via NetGalley in exchange for an honest review. All thoughts and opinions are my own. *Blurb and cover image via Goodreads.
