Kai always gets into trouble, partly because of her fiery temper and partly because she can start fires just by thinking. After the latest incident causes Kai to lose her best friend and be kicked out of school, she is sent to live with her grandmother, who works for the wealthy Blackwoods family. At the Blackwoods estate nothing is normal and everything is shrouded in secrets including the mysterious and sexy Ethan Blackwood. Kai soon realises that her fire starting ability is far from the most dangerous thing on the Blackwoods estate.
Red is a really enjoyable new book from Alyxandra Harvey. It is fast paced with a good balance between action, suspense and romance. The POV is from both Kai and Ethan, but the book is a bit too predictable and was a bit confusing as some things were not full explained.
Kai is a mouthy, stubborn and curious girl who is easy to empathise with as she is misunderstood and never gives up. There are a lot of different sides to Ethan as he is strong, loyal and protective but can sometimes be snobby and has a darker side. I really liked Sloane as she was a good friend.
I enjoyed this book and I am looking forward to the next book in this series. I would recommend Red to fans of Alyxandra Harvey’s other books.
