Love is not just a four-letter word.

Wicked Flame, a steamy, opposites attract MM romance and the highly-anticipated conclusion to the Chicago Heat Duet, set in the beloved Chicagoverse from USA Today bestselling author Ella Frank, is now available!

Jameson Life is hard. I learned that at an early age growing up on the South Side of Chicago. I accepted it, even came to expect it. With a sister who was a constant source of worry, and a track record of losing anyone even remotely close to me, trouble seemed to follow me no matter where I turned.

Some people were born lucky. I was just born.

That’s what I used to believe, anyway, until GQ. The gorgeous guy in the fancy clothes who for some reason decided to look twice at me. He gave me a place to call my own, a space to feel safe, and he made me believe in the impossible—that love was more than just a four-letter word.

Ryan Life is unexpected. I learned that just recently when I walked into a bar on the South Side and found the love of my life—Jameson Clarke.

He’s everything I’ve always wanted, and yet somehow even better than I imagined. He’s brave, brash, protective of those he loves, and under all that bravado is a vulnerability that calls to my very soul.

Jameson’s a storm cloud, but he thinks I’m the sun. If that’s true, then I’m determined to break through the shadows of his past and steal his heart the way he’s stolen mine.

5 out of 5 stars

Wicked Flame is the conclusion to the Chicago Heat duet by Ella Frank. I thought I loved Ryan and Jameson in Wicked Heat, but man was I wrong. We pick up right where we left off. Jameson looking after his sister and Ryan there to support him. Jameson is finally realizing he deserves more. He deserves to be happy. He deserves to be loved. Something he never thought was possible. Ryan is going to support Jameson with whatever he needs. He’s in this for the long haul. There will be obstacles and people who don’t think they will make it, but they will prove them all wrong. Two of my favorite scenes are when Jameson meets Ryan’s family and when they have lunch with Alexander, Sean, Gabe and Marcus. I was laughing out loud, that’s how good it was. Jameson is just so sexy with is bad boy vibe, but he’s also sweet and tender and loving. Ryan is so darn cute! But also sexy and so funny. Together they make the perfect pair. That ending…perfection! Overall, I loved every second of it. I laughed, cried, swooned and they are still one of my favorite couples of Ella’s! I will miss these characters, but hopefully we will see them again!

5 out of 5 stars

Wicked Flame is the second book in Ella Frank’s Chicago Heat series. You can NOT read this as standalone so go read Wicked Heat now. Seriously, you won’t regret it.
Jameson still doesn’t understand why Ryan isn’t not only walking away from him, but running. Their lives were completely different growing up and Jameson finally got out of the South Side but he could never completely walk away from that life. It was where he grew up, where is sister was, where is father figured lived but his life would be more than his parents’. He was a fireman and a good guy but guilt ate him. He never thought he would fall in love. He never thought he would go to fancy dinners. He never even wanted those things until him…
His Lois to his Superman.
Ryan never thought going to a dive bar would change his life but it brought him the best thing in his life… Jameson. Jameson didn’t think he deserved love but Ryan was determined to show him he deserved it all. Jameson might have saved Ryan from a pickpocket the night they met but Ryan saved Jameson too. But will it all be enough?
I absolutely ♥️ Ryan & Jameson! These two are fire together but it’s more than that. Their story is emotional, sweet, hot, and swoony. I hope to see them again in the future!
“Hey there, GQ.” My cock throbbed in response to the way my nickname sounded on his tongue.
Alexander chuckled. “You need a minute to pick your jaw up off the floor, Ryan?” Yes.
“No, I—”
“Fine. Food first, your mouth second, your body third until I’ve had my fill. And GQ?”
“I’m really fucking hungry tonight.” I sucked in a breath.
“Me too.”
“If you wanted to say good morning, GQ, you could’ve just picked up the phone.
