Book Review: Ring of Fire
by: Heather Huffman
Ring of Fire by Heather Huffman is a love story that doesn’t quite feel like one. Joey and Alexandra don’t even like each other when they first meet, and throughout the adventure they get under each other’s skin in a way that is reminiscent of a middle-school crush. From the first few pages of Ring of Fire, you are thrown into a dizzying race to stay ahead of the villains trying to end Alex’s career and the life of her young Princess friend, Lani.
Alex is a brilliant scientist who is studying clean-energy alternatives on Lani’s South Pacific Island, when a big oil company in the U.S. catches wind that valuable minerals are in the soil that Alexandra is studying. The powerful company stops at nothing to make that island theirs.
The chemistry between Alex and Joey, Lani’s keeper, smolders through the every chapter. Although they annoy each other unlike anyone else can, they also possess an insane desire for one another. Because so much is at stake, however, they cannot indulge those kinds of feelings. Instead, they must focus on keeping Lani safe and her island out of the hands of the greedy oil company. There is no time for love when you’re trying to stay alive and find the answer to the geological mystery that could save the island. The romantic tension builds with each turn of the page!
I found myself cheering for each character as they pursue a true solution that works for all involved. Except, maybe, for the crooked gem hunters. After reading this, you will definitely find yourself a Heather Huffman fan and seeking out her other titles!
