Slow Burn

Slow BurnEvan Donovan was doing an old friend a favor when he went to check up on Faye Duncan, Mike’s ex wife. Evan had no idea he would find her so appealing or that she was the photojournalist doing a story on them. Temptation will be too great to leave her on her own.

Faye Duncan wanted freedom and after her divorce she was going to take it. She will soon find herself in the arms of a strong smoke jumper and she wouldn’t want to leave but knows that this life is dangerous and doesn’t know if she wants to do it again.

Slow Burn is the second book to Anne Marsh’s series Burn. Reading the first book I wasn’t pulled in right away but ended up liking it a lot. This one I was prepared for Marsh’s type of writing and found I was pulled right into the book making me love reading it. First off Evan was completely different from his brother. He was quieter and had a softer side along with a very sexy side. Faye is beginning to enjoy life but also finding herself again.

Once again the enemy is a person who is starting fire but not a stalker this time. I liked that Marsh mixes it up and has a new person starting the fires in hopes to draw attention to their ability to put out the fire, at least the ones he started. Things will of course get out of hand and he will not be getting away from what he has done.

Anne Marsh has no other book out yet for the series Burn but I figure it will be Rio next in the series who is the last Donovan brother. I wondered if she will continue it with the rest of the smoke jumper team, it would be a way to keep the series going.

Burning Up

Burning UpJack Donovan is a smoke jumper and was asked to come home. Immediately he dropped everything. He will be back to work on fires that were starting up for the summer but some will be connected to the woman he walked away from.

Lily Cortez left San Francisco and driven out by a stalker who wants her. She had no idea who the person was but thought going home would bring peace, not knowing that is where her stalker lived. Lily will find comfort in her childhood crush but knows that she has to stay away as she could not risk loving him and losing him.

Burning Up is the first book to Anne Marsh’s series Burn. From the looks of the cover you would immediately think sex and strong sexy men and pretty much that is what is going on in the book, and if its not sex there is the sexual tension between Jack and Lily. Now it was good but it didn’t pull me in right away, of course at the end I was all for the series. I think what didn’t pull me in right away was the almost too cocky attitude that Jack had and was a little too dominating with Lily. He was doing it that way because he is the tough Jack and doesn’t hold back but it took a little to get use to.

What I thought was done well by Marsh was the way she described the job in the book for these smoke jumpers. It was interesting to read about and it held that danger making you want to read more. There was also the angle of the stalker which again was well done. You don’t find out who he is until more than half of the book is written but it takes them to almost the very end to stop the stalker and the fires he is obsessed about.

At the time I  picked up Burning Up I got the second book which is great as I definitely want to read more on this series and find out about the rest of the brothers. Ethan will be next in Slow Burn.
