    1. Based on the title, I thought this book would focus on the superpower, but it turned out that this book was more on the angst-contemporary romance. There is nothing wrong with that, actually. I enjoy reading Christian and Tanner's relationship. The two guys are lost souls, in a way -- 32 years old Christian who hides his fire-starter power. The loneliness eats him when he realizes he doesn't have anyone to come home to. AND 20 years old Tanner, with the weight of the life on his shoulder trying [...]


    2. I greatly enjoyed this story by A Young. Once again, she proves a gift for bringing romance to a m/m story and including enough eroticisim without becoming overly pornographic. Fans of Ms. Young will no doubt love this story. My only wish is that she provided more insight into the protagonist's pyro abilities, how they came about, his struggles in life, etc - enhanced the paranormal aspect of the story; it was almost like reading a portion of a much larger body of work (hint, hint, Ms. Young - y [...]


    3. 1) What exactly did the pyromancy have to do with anything1a) Where exactly does it come from?1b) Why did something we were led to believe is very important end up so skirted over?2) Why the hell did the two of them get together?3) Why is Tanner so TSTL?There are probably more points of contention, but I read this a couple of days ago and clearly didn't like it enough for much to stick.


    4. Christian Ryder is lonely. So lonely that he hires a rent-boy, almost more for companionship than anything else. But his guilt won't let that be a good experience. Still, he meets Tanner O'Bannon and starts a series of events that lead to their falling in love.The plot structure of this book is a little different than the uusal m/m paranormal. While Christian is a pyromancer, a fire-starter, a pyrokinetic -- very little is made of this in the book except at fortuitous moments. There's no explana [...]


    5. This story seems fairly realistic to me, in terms of how the POV character feels cursed by the power he has. He is a firestarter, just like Charlie in Stephen King's book, but he isn't hunted by the government or pushed to create epic destruction like King's character. Instead, he struggles to control his power and, working as a firefighter, uses it to help people. And he is devastated by guilt over those he couldn't save. He is lost and he needs someone to know the truth and still accept him.Ea [...]


    6. Wow. I must say that this book surprised me. By looking at the cover, one would think this was one of those cheap porn novels you pick up for fifty cents and skim read for the sex scenes. But this wasn't like that. Yes The sex was hot, but there was more of a story to it. There were times where this book almost made me cry. Then There was so much suspense. This is my first Amanda Young book I have read and I really thought she was a skilled writer. Her characters are even realistic and emotional [...]


    7. Christian is able to control fire. Tanner is making a living as a male escort to pay off his late father's debts and to keep his home from being foreclosed. After seeing Christian in a bar, Tanner decides to get out of the escort business but his boss won't let him. I enjoyed this book and couldn't put it down. It was action packed. I liked Christian and Tanner. I also liked how the book went back and forth between the two so you knew what each was thinking.


    8. I struggled with the rating on this one going between a 2 and a 3. It is really more like a 2.5. I have read a lot of really good books that I have rated a 3 and this just does not stand up to them. The concept, excellent, the characters had a good foundation, but I just found the whole thing underdeveloped and oddly put together.


    9. After mentioning that Young’s m/m books haven’t seemed to really grab me, Tam convinced me to try Pyromancer, which is about a man who can control fire, but only to a certain extent. He can also be incredibly dangerous to the people around him. While I did like this more than the non-paranormals, I ultimately didn’t get completely drawn into this one either.


    10. Another stellar romance, rough-edged and believable, from Amanda Young. This woman can write! Christian and Tanner have literal and figurative sparks between them, and the pages heat up along with their journey. Strongly recommended.


    11. Starts one way, ends anotherAn interesting book, though the title and the first chapter did not match to the focus of the rest of the book. It seems from the start the focus is going to be on Christian's abilities; he is a fire starter and it has isolated him out of fear for others. His abilities are tied to his emotions, so he keeps himself distant from those around him to keep his emotions stable. This means that when it comes to sex he wants to find someone who he can just do and be done, lea [...]


    12. I liked the story but I would have liked to know a little more. At the beginning Christian was all "I can't be with anyone as they will die". But then everything is fine. Also, he blames himself for everything and I think that was kind of stupid. And the whole thing about Nigel was really stupid. Why was he going to kill Tanner? All he does is run an escort service. I could see if the person trying to kill him was someone that his father owed money to or one of his former John's. Also, Tanner wa [...]

    14. 2.5The writing here is actually pretty good. The language is perfectly readable and though the editing is a little rough, it's not overly distracting. Plus, the characters are likable. However, the story itself is a bit of a flop. It's a shame too, because I think it has a lot of potential that just isn't developed. To start with, the pyromancy didn't seem to have anything to do with anything. In the beginning we're told this is a huge problem in Christian's life and it keeps him from being able [...]


    15. Second time I've read Pyromancer - and second time I've enjoyed the read. When trying to think of a suitable review I find I've got few words. Christian is a pyromancer - who hardly shows any sign of even having it until the last 20 pages or so - and Tanner is a smart-mouthed, prideful kid. Fate and circumstance bring them together, Christian's caring heart - and yes, a little desperation for company - keeps them together.The primary conflict ended up being pride, and then tacked on at the end w [...]


    16. Sadly this book didn't live up to my expectations :/At first I thought I'm gonna love it! I liked the MCs: Christian seemed like a 'strong and silent' type and Tanner's a troubled soul who'd let Christian take care of him eventually.Christian's self-esteem issues got on my nerves BIG TIME! I mean, he's rich and gorgeous and he can summon fire by his will - okay, maybe the last one's not so good, but still I just couldn't get why he's so insecure and needy all the time!And Tanner's been surrounde [...]


    17. Great story of two disconnected, lonely men who come together and have to get past fear and pride to be together. I agree with some of the other reviewers who say that the relationship is really the story and not the paranormal elements. There was sensational chemistry between the characters and the sex scenes were quite enjoyable. The declarations of love come come awfully soon but that's often the way in books like this. I especially liked Christian and his protective and tender attitude towar [...]


    18. This was a good book for what it was, I was kind of expecting more on the 'curse' side of things, maybe more of an explanation as to how he had this power. Or even maybe a bit more of a look at the control he actually had, but saying that not exploring it gave room for the author to spend more time on the relationship. Nice quick read, nothing too heavy which was good. There was the odd typo here and there, but nothing that really through me out of the book. The one thing that did keep pulling m [...]

    20. Christian Ryder, pyromancer, is afraid to get too attached to anyone since his powers manifest badly when he gets overly emotional. This is his story of meeting and wanting Tanner O'Bannon but hesitating for Tanner's own good. I enjoyed the story but found too many typos (well actually missing words) which made the reading tedious as I kept having to stop and backup to see what I missed only it wasn't me that was missing something. I figure ebooks are the wave of the future but how do they expec [...]


    21. 2.5Nice, sweet, angsty, and uncomplicated story with pnr elements.However, I started losing interest after getting about a quarter of the way through the book because:1) the plot was very predictable2) the matter of Tanner's prostitution was glossed over3) the characters were rather one-dimensional and also predictable4) the author's style of writing was irritating in places because of a tendency to over-dramatize, especially in the end. I did finish the book, but will keep in mind that Miss You [...]


    22. Entre écrire une bonne histoire et écrire une histoire de cul, il faut choisir. Amanda Young, elle, a fait son choix, probablement pas le plus judicieux qui soit mais tant pis pour elle.Les clichés sont légion dans ce livre sulfureux sans saveur, la partie paranormale n'a aucune espèce d'intérêt tant elle est sous-développée, l'intrigue est assez minable, etc.Ce bouquin renforce lui aussi la mauvaise opinion que j'ai de ce genre de littérature : c'est mauvais et ça n'essaie même pas [...]


    23. I thought the narration was really good. I love the story about Christian, a man with an ability that isn't exactly a gift but is part of him. The debts that Tanner has to cover after the passing of his father died made his story interesting. It provided a reason for his profession. After Tanner is attacked, Christian takes him in and a relationship begins for them. What I thought I knew about the attack was completely off base when the author surprised me about who was behind it. I didn't expec [...]


    24. I really like the characters in this book. Tanner and Christian have some really great interactions and how they relate to each other feels very honest. Of course, I'm always a fan of paranormal, so Christian's "gift" is a nice treat for me, but it's not a real in-depth part of the story. Surprisingly, since this is one of the few things that can squick me, their age difference, though noted, is not very obvious at all. Instead, their relative naivety about relationships is kinda cute. :)


    25. This was a sweet novella and I listened to the audio version, which is very good. However, I'm not sure why the author choose to give one of the MC's firestarter powers, especially since we are left with no idea how or why he has them. It really didn't add anything to the story; it would have been just fine without it. Christian and Tanner are a lovely couple, but not a lot of backstory about them. I enjoyed their story.


    26. Well I finished it.It got two stars because I finished it, and it was SO bad that it came around to amusing. So tropish it's not even funny. So many literary cliches you might just gag (hint to authors, if a character is 5'8" he's not going to have to look up, then look higher, then crane his neck to look at a 6'6" person. Really.)


    27. There were lots of things about this that kept me from enjoying it more: - Lots of typos, verbs conjugated incorrectly, and sentences that referred to things that didn't happen - Christian was supposed to be 12 years older than Tanner, but most of the time he acted like he was 12 years old, period - The plot was very predictable and hinged on some stupid misunderstandings


    28. FirestarterI loved this story. Two lost souls find each other tanner struggles with debt and loss while Christian struggles with guilt and insecurities. Both men struggle with loneliness. They meet and right away they both feel a strong pull towards each other but feel there's no way to be together. This was cute and fun to read


    29. I started out really liking this book but ended up not being crazy about it. It was ok. I just don't buy the -Hi nice to meet you, I think I'm in love with you. Some of the dialogue seemed a little silly to me, too. I didn't love the book but I would probably check out another book by this author since I really did like the beginning of the book.
