Fierce (Chicago Underground #3) by: Skye Warren

I’m torn between what I want and what I need. Between the men in my past and the man by my side. Colin has tried to control me, to use me. But he also guards me so fiercely my heart aches.

Raincheck. Business. Don’t wait up. —C

That’s the note he leaves for me, as if I could sit around while he fights my dragons. As if I could let himself get killed in some vain attempt to protect me.

There’s no protection left for me. No redemption either.

This is my battle, and I’ve already lost.


This is the finale of Allie and Colin’s story. 

WOW!!!!!! That is the first thing that came to mind once I finished this book. A lot happened in this book. And secrets were revealed.

In the beginning of the book Colin is upset that she accused him of having something to do with Tony (the guy that Colin beat up.)

She decided not to betray Phillip because he was Colin’s brother and if they came after Phillip then they would come after Colin. And given that Phillip had helped her with the Andrew situation she felt she owed him just a small token of thanks. But, she was not going to let go of the Tony situation, she just needed a little bit more information. She just wanted to protect Colin. So, when the police came around for the information she gave the police a false address.

While the police was at her house he was running off at the mouth and she literally grabs him by the balls and shoves him up against the wall with a knife pressed against his neck. She tells him in order to get the information she has for him no matter what happens he is not to come back there and bother her again. He agrees. After he left she still felt scared but also powerful in a way.

Colin ends up asking Allie about what she accused him of with Rick and Tony. He told her that he said something to his brother about it and Phillip told him that she was an informant for the cops. He told her he didn’t believe that and punched his brother. She told him that she had or will she ever tell the cops about him or his brother.

Colin went to have sex with her but at the time she didn’t want it. She said no but he said yes. She started to get a little scared but she ended up breaking through and he thought it was her game she used to play, but she told him it wasn’t and he stopped but felt bad.

She tried to set it up to where they would be together the night of the shipment so Colin wouldn’t be anywhere around the area. After she put Bailey down she went downstairs to get ready for their movie date and could not find Colin anywhere. She finally found a note saying he needed a raincheck and not to wait up. She called and he would not answer. She was starting to panic.

She called Shelly and she told her what she had done and Allie got so upset. She ran to the neighbors and asked her to watch Bailey that she had an emergency she needed to tend to. She knew she should just trust Colin but she wanted to protect him just the same.

She went to where the warehouse was and she seen Shelly scared and looked to be in a state of shock. She tried to send her on her way so she would not be there but she just held on even tighter. They went into the warehouse and someone shut and locked them inside. Then Shelly noticed the fire before Allie. They were trapped. They tried to get out but it was no use. She was banging on the door with a gun trying to break the door knob off but it was not working. Then she heard Colin calling her name and he told her to back up.

After he got them out he thought right then that she was the informant but she told him she was not that she sent the cops to a false address. He ended up believing her but her brother didn’t. He spilled secrets about Colin to Allie that was hard for her to hear. When Phillip asked her if she was not the informant who was he looked at Shelly and before anyone could say anything Allie asked him about Tony. That sent Colin in an uproar and he punched Phillip and they started to fight. They decided to hold off on fighting because they heard sirens, but Phillip knew that Shelly was the informant. Allie asked her why and she said she broke the rule.

After the police got there and he told them that they were late because someone gave them the wrong address. He ran his mouth for a little bit and one of the cops pointed a gun at Phillip right at the heart and just as he shot Shelly jumped in the way.

After she was shot they heard sirens again and knew that the good cop was on the way. The other cops took off running and Colin took off after the piece of crap cop who gave the order. Phillip was trying to help Shelly and Allie came to help but they didn’t know what to do. The good cop came running up and pushed them out of the way. Then they knew who Shelly had fallen for.

Allie was arrested for the warehouse explosion and Shelly was sent to the hospital. They both ended up in the hospital because Colin pushed Allie down when the cops when to shooting to protect her and she ended up with a concussion.

Phillip came to the house to apologize to her and told her that social services was going to let Bailey stay with Colin. She asked him if he was going to use his money to get her out of here but before that she asked him why he didn’t like her. He told her that he thought she was after Colin’s money, and he figured out that Colin had never told her about most of his life and where most of his money came from. He laughed.

Allie snuck out of her room to go and see Shelly and the good cop was there, not sure what was happening to her but she ended up spilling her life to him about everything. Later Allie was released due to a witness, she knew it was with the help of that cop.

After Allie got home Colin didn’t speak to her but doted on her. It was driving her crazy because he was taking such good care of her but would not talk to her. She woke up one night and during that time she told him that she loved him. He jumped back and left the room. When Allie woke up Colin was gone and so was some of his cloths. She didn’t know what to think.

She didn’t know if she was going to have to move out or what was going on. Their usual lunch delivery arrived minus Colin’s lunch. That showed Allie that he was not planning on coming back right away but maybe it was a sign. She baked a cake and took it to the restaurant to give to him like a peace offering. He acted like he didn’t want her there and she asked him if she should move out and he said no that he didn’t want her to.

She got tired of waiting for Colin so she decided to make a plan. She called his sister, and if she went according to the plan he should be meeting her at the club very soon. Sure enough here he came and told her she needed to leave. She agreed and when they got outside he told her she was to go home and he was not coming with her. Well, they ended up going to the same hotel as last time. They ended up making up and Colin asked her a big question that you will have to read the book to find out.

I really encourage you to read this series. It is Awesome!!!!
