Review: Fire Me Up by Katie MacAlister
How much shit can one woman get into? Apparently a lot! Aisling pings from catastrophe to disaster like a human pinball; ding! Murder suspect! Ding! Incubus magnet! Ding! Dragon problems! I love it. Not only does it make for a fast paced story that leaves you a little breathless at the end, but it dishes out some really hilarious situations, all of which are commented on sarcastically by my favourite ever demon dog Jim!
Jim and Aisling, they are my favourite couple, I know they aren't a couple in the romantic sense but they are still my favourite couple. The barbs, the insults, the whining (from both of them!) that is the main reason I am reading these books. But on to the romantic couple Drake and Aisling, they really do burn up the pages and although this isn't a steamy book the love scenes get the pulse racing, although they are a little lost in the general cacophony that is Aisling's life. One of the aspects of this book which does stop it getting 5 stars instead of 4 is that Drake just doesn't grab me like other heroes do. He is okay, but personally he doesn't really enhance the books for me, I would like them just as much without him in it.
This was another great book in the series, like the previous book it isn't a WOW book, I wouldn't build a shrine to it glouriousness (not that I EVER do that *hides shrines*) but I am definitely enjoying it a lot, I love a book that can make me laugh.
"You're not going to go all Buffy/Angel on me, are you? Mooning around bemoaning the forbidden love that cannot be? Because if you are, I'm finding myself a new demon lord. Love I can take, but mooning is not in my contract."
Terms of Endearment....Aisling Style!
