ARC Review: Fuse by Angel Payne

The storm is here. Will it rip apart their fated fusion?
Now that Reece Richards and Emmalina Crist have exposed the Consortium to the globe, they’re bracing for the organization’s full reprisal, undoubtedly led by Faline Garand. The woman, infamously obsessed with Reece, can’t be happy about the lovers’ worldwide announcement.
But an engagement doesn’t mean instant plans of white lace and roses for Bolt and his lady, especially when a key member of Team Bolt goes rogue and destroys half of downtown LA. Taking down his former friend is a harrowing nightmare for Reece, worsened by a shocking discovery that takes its toll in sickening ripples…
Including Reece’s own psyche.
With her man lost in a fathomless darkness, Emma can no longer stand on the sidelines. Pushing past her fears, she takes the fight straight to Faline’s turf—but the risk is huge, and so are the consequences.
There’s no turning back. The storm has broken, and the landscape of Reece and Emma’s relationship will be forever transformed. Can they fuse once more, coming together in love to survive the blast?

Where do I even start? I'm still very much in love with Reece! As I've said, time and time again, Angel Payne created such a perfect hero when she created this man. His reformation is complete and he's utterly delicious. He's intelligent, compassionate, funny, understanding, passionate, determined, generous, et al... all in one seriously sexy package. I can't get enough of him and his personality alone is why I love this series so much!

Here's the kicker... remember how I've been saying that I really couldn't stand Emma? How she had become this heroine who thought she was capable of so much more than she was? How her thoughts were inconceivable? How she wanted to be treated as an equal to Reece, despite the fact that their differences were obvious even to the casual observer? How she just annoyed me with her existence? Well... I wasn't annoyed by her this time. I know, I know, how could this be? The author somehow changed this character's dynamic, making her more approachable and likeable and although I'm still not her biggest fan, I am firmly entrenched in her camp, no longer rebelling.

There's a lot of action in this book and everyone plays a part. My heart broke for certain scenes and I'm still feeling the loss of some characters (how could you?), but some huge events happened that have certainly turned the tide in Team Bolt's favor. And yes, I'm being intentionally vague in this piece because to know the story, you have to read the story!! You know an author is super talented when the momentum doesn't decline after so many parts and I'm still excited for what happens next!
