What I loved about the book:
- The Spiegeltent was almost a character unto itself. It added to the vividness of the world that was created in the book and cast its shadow over certain key moments in the story. At times it seemed like a place of celebration and happiness, but at others you could sense that it held secrets and stories that were much darker.
- Jack and his transformation throughout the story. Initially I was worried that my impression of Jack may be tarnished through comparisons with Jay. Jay, being so dynamic and full of prestige, was a force of nature that I wasn't sure Jack could compete with. That thought left about 3 seconds into Jack's appearance in the book. Jack almost leaps off the page with a darker intensity than his brother and although there are some similarities (the showmanship, the single-minded focus), the differences are striking. Jack is enigmatic and you get the sense that he doesn't see himself clearly, he's almost shy and yet he seems to feel so deeply that he doesn't know what to do with the emotion.
- Lille as the catalyst for change. Lille's a gorgeous heroine and added so much to the story through her actions. She isn't a heroine that sits there plagued with anxiety, instead she's out there experiencing life, living her way and trying to have the type of life that she wants while supporting other people.
- The circus life. I think at some stage, most people want to run away and join the circus. Hearts of Fire gives the reader that opportunity and makes you realise that the reality and the dream may be very different. The people of the circus are an eclectic mix of ethnicities and personalities and they weave together to create almost a small town feel. Even the circus animals are given key scenes.
- Jay and Matilda's appearance and how it was handled. The underlying feeling of abandonment is present throughout the book within each of the characters - Jack losing his family, Lille's emotionally unavailable Mother and missing father, King, Lola, etc. The scene with Jack and Jay underscored how the stories that we hear and the beliefs that we hold about certain things may not be true. Rather than seeming trite, Jay and Matilda's presence in this book central to the story and to Jack and Lille's
- The poem, the picture and the gifts in general. As a person who loves giving gifts, those little touches added to the personality of the characters and the story.
What I didn't love:
Honestly this list is pretty short as the book could only have been improved by:
- Being longer and giving me more information about Jack and Lille. This may be a completely selfish wish though as I didn't want their story to end. I wanted to know more about what happened after the epilogue, have more time with the two couples and more everything.
There were some parts which left me feeling flat and disinterested.
3.85 star rating from me.

I read Six of Heats first and I fell in love with Jay Fields and now I've finished this book, I am in love with his brother too.
Jack McGabe is a fire breather in the circus, what's not to love about that?
Well add to the fact that he is hot, a bit damaged and he has a long lost brother that he hates you can't help but love him.
Lille is a girl that is fed up of her controlling Mother, so decides to run away with the circus. At first reading this book, I thought Lille was about 15, not because of how she acted but because her how controlling her Mother was of her.
I love the relationship between Lille and Jack. It begins as a friendship that turns into so much more. I really enjoyed the secondary characters. Lola has a very interesting past, which I would love to know more about.
I love the whole circus background, but I wish there was a bit more description of the circus and what it felt like and what it looked like etc. We only really got a small snippet when Lille said she wanted to draw it.
I loved this book and I can't wait for more. I'm really looking forward to King's book!
There are some dark themes within this story but at the end of the day it's an epic romance and long-lost sibling tale told in a beautiful way.
I'm not generally a weeper when I read but this one had me welling up.
I read Six Of Hearts (the story of Jay and Matilda) first, I think it is a 5 star book, but you can read and enjoy this book without having read Six Of Hearts first.
I have enjoyed all the books I have read by L.H. Cosway and recommend this one and all the others.
