I remembered her. I remembered everything.

But was it a blessing or a curse?

Half of me was still in love with the blue eyed girl wearing my crown around her neck. The other, felt betrayed that she could walk away when I needed her the most.

Struck down by her absence, an internal war brewed within my kingdom.

Along with my childhood memories a new emotion was unleashed, one I was unable to control.


Unbridled, unrelenting, rage.

My Review

Those palpable emotions that were present in Crowned With Guilt shine through in book 2, making it just as heartbreaking and overwhelmingly dark as the experiences of book 1, but in Cleansed With Fire, the hope that seemed to dissipate before Tessa and Andrew could hold on to it now has a second chance to help restore a bond that began long ago…that was meant to be, but happily ever afters are not easily acquired – they aren’t handed out; they must be earned and that has to be done by facing what seem to be insurmountable obstacles, half-truths, heartache, and so much more that S.K. Rose throws their way.

There’s never a path that ties everything together easily, and when it comes to Tessa and Andrew’s journey, they must go it alone, at times, in order to understand…in order to remember…in order to absorb all that has occurred before any forward progress can be achieved and it’s those struggles that provides a litany of insight about who Tessa and Andrew are and just how much they’re willing to sacrifice in order to acquire the future they desperately want.

I will admit, though, there were times that I felt like Andrew and Tessa would never find their way back to each other and I even questioned if Andrew deserved Tessa’s love and devotion due to some of his actions and reactions, but I still held out hope and trudged my way through the emotional torment that the hero and heroine faced and waited for the time in their story where they would be cleansed after they walked through fire and brimstone and let me tell you, SK Rose made Andrew and Tessa earn everything they desired.

This all-consuming love story takes readers and its characters on a dark journey – one that’s tragic and angst-riddled and one that requires one’s sins to be forgiven and one’s heart to be repaired at any cost. It’s not an easy book to read and there were more than a handful of times when I wanted to throw my iPad across the room due to the events in this book, but the fact that I had such out of control emotions throughout my time reading Cleansed With Fire proves just how powerful of a story SK Rose crafted and how well developed the storyline and characters are.

She was so close I could reach out my hand and touch her, and that’s exactly what I did. I pulled her into my arms and let the world around us fade to black. My dulled senses roared to life, and for those few moments, everything was how it should be.

I gazed into ocean blue eyes and saw the sad little girl who was crying in the yard next door. I remembered how it felt to have her small body curled up against mine. The sound of her hushed voice whispering a secret in my ear. How she tasted when we shared our first kiss.

In that instant my control crumbled. I had to hold her.

I needed to feel her heartbeat against mine. My princess. But all too soon the emotions that I’ve kept under lock and key, returned with a vengeance. For years it’s squeezed my heart, twisting it into something ugly and spiteful.

Unbridled, unrelenting, rage.
