Abandoned at birth, Sophie Shields grew up in abusive foster homes, escaping into books and computers for solace. When the constant danger became too much to bear, she ran away, thinking she could survive on her hacking skills alone.
That was until she met Cole Hunter. He became the only person she could trust: her family, her friend, her partner-in-crime. Her everything. After struggling through college and starting their lives together, she believed that nothing could ever tear them apart.
Until it did.
And she’ll do everything in her power to fix what is broken. If it isn’t too late…
When Cole was nine years old, he watched his whole family burn to death in a house fire. Fueled by years of obsession, he started one of the world’s leading architectural firms, with a mission to design homes resistant to fire, earthquakes, floods, and every threat known to man.
Sophie was his secret weapon. She was his purpose. Since they were teenagers, he was determined to build a better life for her, so she could finally be safe, and they could be together.
But disaster has always followed Cole around, ripping away everything he loves. This time, if he isn’t careful…
His enemies might just take him down.
I generously received this ARC from Xpresso Book Tours Review Opportunity in exchange for an honest review!
I just finished this book a few minutes ago and words can’t begin to describe just how much I loved this extraordinary book! The Fireproof Girl happens to be the first book that I’ve ever read from this author, but I can tell you that I can’t wait to carve out a little time in the near future to sit down and read the follow up novel, The Bulletproof Boy.
The best part of this entire novel had to be the aspect of dual perspectives between Sophie and Cole. Sophie’s side of the story was told in present day (2016) while Cole’s side dealt with their past (2003) and how it’s has contributed to their present. Through Sophie’s perspective we get to see her on a journey of searching for clues surrounding Cole’s death and who shot him. In my opinion, the author is able to successfully take the readers on the adventure of a lifetime as we discover just who Sophie Shields really is. Although I loved Sophie’s side of the story I adored Cole’s because his side was a lot edgier and we got to see just how much he cared for Sophie and would do anything to protect her.
I don’t want to give away too much of this story, but I will tell you that the ending is full of surprises that will leave you wanting more! 🙂
