Description

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.

Thoughts

The Fireproof Girl by Loretta Lost is about Sophie Shields and Cole Hunters. Both are orphans. Sophie was abandoned at birth whilst Cole watched his family died in a fire when he was nine.

The story was told in 2 POVs: Sophie in the year 2016 and Cole in 2003. Though, it was mostly Sophie. The switch between the 2 timeframes aren’t really confusing at all since the flashbacks makes everything easier to understand.

To be honest, reading the first parts of the book was a struggle for me. I didn’t know what was happening and what to expect. Sophie is irritating at times when she’s too selfish. Her being a CIA agent was really cool along with her hacking skills. On the other hand, I only got to know Cole on his few POVs but keeping a part of his personality a mystery made him more interesting.

The writing was good. I finished the book in one sitting. Although, the story got a little complicated on the latter part. I actually was surprised to see that I was close to finishing it. The ending didn’t please me nor disappointed me. It was oddly satisfying though. I found myself longing for the romance, for the Sophie to find Cole. It kept me on the edge of my seat. The plot twists are awesome and I enjoyed every second I was reading it!

Overall, I rate The Fireproof Girl, 4 out of 5 stars and I’m looking forward to the 2nd book in the series, The Bulletproof Boy.

 

Excerpt

I see us bleeding each other dry. I see us both sacrificing our goals for one more moment together.

One more mind-numbing and soul-crushing moment of bliss. We will erase each other. We will blend into each other until we forget who we used to be. Who we could have been.

I see how broken she is, how afraid and insecure, and I see me wanting to do anything to make her whole. I see my own brokenness, and the way I would use her body to try and forget my own pain and loss. I see me expecting her to nurture me enough to replace my mother and father; I see me endlessly asking her for more, and more, and more. I see me leaning on her a little too much every time it becomes difficult to stand on my own two feet and become a man out there in the real world.

I see us drowning in a love of overwhelming power, and both of us unable to breathe or come up for air. I see us being consumed, and eventually incinerated.

This love is a dangerous one. I can feel it now, as I teeter on the edge of falling in. It is a flame that burns so white-hot it could only destroy everything it touches. It would destroy us.

We’re not strong enough yet.

We are just two frightened kids who have nothing, and no one. If we had each other, we would tear each other to shreds. We would devour each other, looking for all the things that we’re missing, and all the things that we were supposed to find in ourselves first.

I see it all so clearly, and it gives me the courage to pull away from her—even though it feels like I am ripping off my own flesh. It gives me the courage to stop before I can kiss her—because once I do, there’s no going back.
