“Anger is like a thorn in the heart...the roar of my courage and the cold sweat of my fear.” ~Luca
Pyromania is an impulse control disorder  in which individuals repeatedly fail to resist impulses to deliberately start fires,  in order to relieve tension or for instant gratification.
Damon Luca, or Luca as they called him. I thought of him more as Damien, the fucking devil within these walls that now is my life. Dark, broody, and deadly to any woman. Mind-blowing, soul-shaking, raw sex appeal. He was a tall statured boy with broad shoulders and a pair of green eyes that set my soul on fire. His inky black hair framed his hard, chiseled features. He had the type of body that had no business being on a seventeen-year-old. I knew that once he fully developed, he'd be nothing short of drop-dead gorgeous. As I said...deadly on the eyes...and dangerous for your heart.
My name is Allison. I met Luca through an unfortunate event when we were younger. I’m now twenty-four, and this is my story. My fucked up life. It's not a pretty one. Then again, the most interesting ones aren't...are they? This isn't your usual love story. Anything but. There are no blue skies, rainbows, or unicorns. Only him...my own personal arsonist. He had the ability to set my panties on fire, leave my body smoldering, and turn my heart into burning embers. He scared the hell out of me, made me feel. He opened my eyes to the world of twisted love. But love no less. This scary, beautiful man stole my heart from a young, tender age and refused to give it back. Here’s our story…
This story is deep, dark, and deals with real scars and growth because of them.
Allison and Luca meet in a rehabilitation center. He knows right away that she is his. He goes out of his way to find and introduce himself to her. But he is careful with her, protective if you will. Then Allison reveals to Luca why she is there. Things change. Ollie is there to help Allison pick up the pieces when Luca bolts without a goodbye. But is Ollie enough for Allison? Or will she forever be Luca's?
Fast forward several years. Ollie and Allison are still friends and are adults now. With grown up issues and problems. But nothing that they can't face. But this friendship is held together by Ollie's belief that one day Allison will be his, when she forgets all about her past. But Allison still clings to it. Will the past come back and open up old wounds?
The first half of the book I was enthralled with. I couldn't put it down, I was in love with Luca, Ollie, and Allison. I secretly wished Allison would fall for Ollie, not Luca. I just felt like Luca was going to use her and crush her. The second half of the book, I was annoyed with Allison for her actions, holding on to things that hurt. She learned how to deal with her past, why didn't she use that? I guess I wanted her to grow up.
This book does end in a cliff hanger. And if I was holding a book I would have tossed it across the room. But since I held my Kindle, I turned it off and mulled it over in brain what just happened and why?!
