Falling for him is playing with fire…
Chloe Addison is on the verge of a promising career in real estate development until an explosion destroys her first major project and casts suspicion on her in an arson investigation. Her career is suddenly at risk—and possibly her life.
Firefighter Ryan Monroe wants a spot on the arson team, and getting close to Chloe might be the best way to solve his first investigation. Despite a painful past of his own, Ryan has dedicated himself to saving people, and when he realizes Chloe is in danger, she’s no exception. He just might be the perfect guy to rescue her, but their attraction could bring them both down in flames.
As soon as I saw the cover to Burn, I knew I wanted to read it. It's so provocative. And the book itself is a joy to read!
First off, the characters Chloe and Ryan have so much chemistry it's a wonder they don't set the pages aflame.
Chloe is a small town girl with a big secret. She's trying to escape her past. Instead, once she meets fireman Ryan, she is forced to confront it.
Ryan is the epitome of how I see real-life firemen: heroes. He's brave, kind, selfless, and hot. But Ryan has a past he'd rather not remember. too.
Someone is blowing up buildings on town, and Chloe is always in the vicinity when they explode. Is she the arsonist, or a victim? Ryan needs to know, because he's falling for her in a big way.
I enjoyed the push and pull of Chloe and Ryan's attraction. It gave the story its needed conflict. I loved how realistic both characters appeared. They had flaws that were believable. The mystery of who was the arsonist remained a mystery until the very end, which is always a good thing.
There was enough action to continue drawing the reader in, and the sex scenes were PG-13, which is a plus to me. I don't need all the scientific names for body parts spelled out like a biology class.
Ms. Altieri knew her firehouse/firemen scenario. She did her homework, making the narrative realistic, yet not so technical that you feared for a test at the end. A perfect combination!
I highly recommend Burn to readers, because it has a suspenseful plot, attractive, human characters, and the writing style pulls you through the story at a pace that doesn't leave you out of breath, or snoring.
All in all, I look forward to more from Dawn Altieri, and you should, too.
