Review – Fury

In the midst of reading a demanding (yet awesome) book for my book group I received an ARC of Fury by Elizabeth Miles. It seemed the perfect book to read while wooing my other one. So yesterday on my day off I cracked it open and read almost the entirety of the book in one setting. Yeah. It’s the absolute right choice to have picked up to intersperse with another.

In Ascension Maine everyone is gearing up for the holiday. Em is sad that her best friend, Gabby, will be in Spain for Christmas. However, Gabby has tasked Em with the job of entertaining her boyfriend, Zach, while she is away. Em complies, partly out of loyalty, and majorly out of a selfish desire to see him. Even though she is her best friend’s boyfriend Em has had feelings for him for some time; feelings that she equally feels guilty and giddy about.

Elsewhere in town is the football captain, Chase. Chase wants everything to be perfect. Most of all he wants people to forget where he comes from – a lowly trailer park. When he meets a beautiful girl named Ty he begins to do things out of his depth for her…even though they don’t fit into his great plan.

Fury is one big tease, but a good one. It’s all sly smirks and feathers on skin and whispered secrets. It’s a subtle yet bold book. I adored every bit of this. It’s a very clever book that manages to keep the reader interested in the reveal even if it doesn’t happen until the tail end of the book. I loved this narrative. I appreciate any book that deals with cause and consequence, where characters have to own up to the sum of their actions. I want to know where it’s going. It’s awesome. I loved it. I want more.

5 out of 5 stars. I can’t wait for the next one!
