I’m not safe.
I haven’t been safe for a while now.
I ran to Zeth for protection, but Zeth is in danger himself. With Julio on one side, and the leader of the Widow Makers MC on the other, the smartest thing to do would be to run. I’ve been running long enough, though.
This is the closest I’ve come to finding my sister in two years.
I can’t back down now.
My right hand man’s being tortured in the basement.
The guy who tried to buy Sloane’s virginity is burning rubber in our direction.
My psychotic boss is on a mission to find me, and the girl I’m supposed to be keeping safe has landed herself right in the middle of all of this.
Just another breezy weekend in the Californian desert.
What could possibly go wrong in the next 48 hours?
Let me begin with expressing how much I love Zeth. He’s just the perfect bad boy and I’m a sucker for a man with a stone exterior and a secret soft center. All I can say is that Sloan is one lucky beeotch! She gets to enjoy the amazingly naughty things Zeth does to her when they have their private moments.
Burn picks up immediately where Fracture left off. Sloan and Zeth are in a brothel trying to manage ways to stay alive so they can find and save Sloan’s sister. They’re already having to deal with a ruthless drug lord, now they have to deal with a badass MC biker gang that just rode in for a monstrous soiree about to take place. While they figure out how to survive…Sloan and Zeth inch just a little bit closer.
Sloan is just a great character. She’s strong yet timid on occasion. The fact that she can balance her desire for Zeth with her fear of him shows just how strong she is. She doesn’t deny he’s a dangerous man but accepts it and him for all that he is. Sure he has a tendency to scare the bejeezus out of her but she continues to hold her own against him and all the other menacing men she comes across. I think this is why Zeth wants her so badly. Deep down he wants someone to break through his stony layers and get to the soft gooey middle he hides and protects with his rough exterior and criminal behavior. I think Zeth feels that Sloan is just the person for that job. She keeps him on his toes by constantly surprising him with her reactions to the mess they’re constantly in. She always ends up doing the opposite of what he expects. He doesn’t know what side of Sloan he’ll get from one minute to the next and deep down…he loves it.
What goes down in the brothel is nonstop… from Zeth having to keep his cool and ‘cover’ while making sure Sloan remains unharmed. There were plenty of comical moments to lighten the mood and keep you pulled into the story. I love the banter between Sloan and Zeth. They definitely have great chemistry. I was hoping to get more Naughty time between the two so I’m hoping the next books in the series will give a little bit more.
All in all it was wonderful continuation to the Blood & Roses series. I will definitely NEVER get enough of Zeth.
