With my heart and reputation in ruins, I can’t afford to make another mistake. Boarding a flight to Seattle is supposed to give me a clean slate, but from the moment Cash Montgomery slides into the seat next to mine, I’m captivated by his steel eyes that see too much. I ache for this stranger in a way I’ve never ached for anyone.
But I didn’t know he was married, and I sure as hell didn’t see the curveball fate had in store. My clean slate in Seattle isn’t so clean after all because my new boss is the man forbidden to me.
And the only man I want.
The only man I’ll do anything for, even if it means breaking the promise I made to myself when I fled my old life in shame.
I wasn’t supposed to fall for a married man, but I did.

Trevor “Tank” Trumbolt
I never thought in the blink of an eye my life could change, but it did. Cresting a hill driving to my favorite fishing spot, I was hit head-on by a teenager with no regard for anyone’s life but his own.
The recovery process has been hard, painful, and damn near beating me down.
The bright spot? Blaze.
Surviving the wreck has given me a second chance to make a life with her. Not knowing if I’ll ever be able to rejoin the Moonshine Task Force again has brought my world into focus. It’s made me realize what’s important.
Blaze. Stella. My brothers. My sister.
The ego that ran Blaze away before isn’t here any longer. What’s left is a man who’s holding his heart in his hands and a burning hope that once I’m healed she’ll still be around.
Daphne “Blaze” Coleman
There’s only been one person in the world who’s accepted me for who I am – from the fiery red of my hair and vibrant tattoos covering parts of my body to the smartness of my mouth and my desire to be matched in the bedroom.
That man is Trevor Trumbolt. When he asked me to give up my job as an EMT because he saw the dangers I face one scary afternoon, it spelled the end for us.
Now that he’s been injured, he needs my help and my love. I’ll give it all freely, but in the end I’m gonna need him to understand one thing about relationships. The give and take, love and sadness, pleasure and pain is a two-way street. He’s either in this with me or he’s not, but at the end of the day, I won’t let him boss me around.
If there’s anything that can handle the steel of a tank – it’s the heat of a blaze.

I still have the dreams, baby. Do you?
In mine, I plead and wait for your touch to come like it always did.
But it never does.

my trail of anger, desolation.
Am I the same man?
Brewed on vengeance,
laced with tenderness,
my fury for you.

Fury is a standalone, but it is also a spin-off from the brilliant Lock & Key series. You don’t have to read that series to enjoy Fury, but I highly recommend that you do. This book runs alongside all 4 books in that series and it really will only intensify your enjoyment of this story.
Do you know what, I am absolutely lost for words in regards to this book. At this point in my review I usually like to give a story overview, but how can I even begin to encapsulate the epic journey that this book has taken me on. And that guys is what this book is; a journey of love, heartbreak, violence and passion and one that spans 25 years.
So what I will say is that this is Finger and Serena’s story. If you are a fan of Cat Porter’s you have been introduced to these characters in her Lock & Key series. From horrific beginnings a true love is born, but life gets in the way, as well as evil and let me tell you it gives us the reader a book that is gritty, breath-taking and heart stopping brilliant.
I’m not sure what it is about Cat’s writing, but every time I pick up one of her book it causes physical reactions. Fury touched every one of my emotions. I read this with my heart in my throat most of the time and with an anxiousness that only 3 other books have ever caused; one of which is Random & Rare, also by Ms Porter. Seriously, it made me feel sick at times dreading what was going to come next for these star-crossed lovers. And that my friends is what is so bloody awesome about this masterpiece.
Now be warned, this book is not for the faint of heart. It is violent, it is at times very graphic, but it is also freaking beautiful. Cat Porter doesn’t churn out books, she makes us wait and then rewards us with our patience. Her books are detailed, they dot the I’s and cross every single t. They twist and they turn and they push us to the brink, and rather that than a generic book every other month. This is an author worth waiting for because of the end product that she gives us. The writing is first class, the characters are original and the storylines have a depth that most authors only dream of creating. I am in awe of this woman’s talent and her gift for mucking with my damn blood pressure.
So as I have already mentioned, Random & Rare has always been my favourite from this author. Fury though gives it a run for its money in my affection. I am not going to say Fury is now my favourite as it would be like choosing a favourite child, but if you are a fan of this author, well it just gives you an idea of how truly epic this story really is.
In an indie world awash and saturated with MC novels, there are but a few authors that can pull it off for me consistently and Cat Porter is at the top of the pile. So if you are undecided, if you aren’t feeling MC romance like you once were, please take the chance on this author and her books. They are some of the best you will ever read!
A MUST READ BOOK AND AUTHOR!
