I ended up staying up WAY past my bedtime to finish “Wicked Burn” by Beth Kery. It was worth every yawn I suffered through today! I just intended to read a few chapters, but the author sucked me in with her wickedly hot love scenes and emotional story.
Niall has been existing, but not living, for the last several years. The violent death of her child changed her world in almost every way. It’s taken all her strength to just get through each day…and the nightmares don’t help. When she’s saved by her sexy neighbor from an overly amorous date, the sparks fly and the next thing Niall knows they’re burning up the sheets. But Niall is keeping some pretty harsh secrets, and as the sex becomes a relationship, she’s terrified of what her lover might do when he finds out.
Vic is a successful writer. He doesn’t have a problem getting women…temporarily and on his terms. He’s noticed his sexy neighbor even though she’s not his type, but on her, even her pearls turn him on. And when the attraction explodes into the hottest affair he’s ever had, Vic slowly realizes this might be what he’d given up on finding. Of course, the one thing Vic can’t stand is a liar or a cheat.
A whole bunch of the hottest monogamous sex you’ll read interspersed with a poignant story that may bring a few tears. Sure, the hero and heroine jump into bed, but there’s actually a plot advancing reason for it. And at times I was frustrated with the heroine, but I can’t begin to imagine the horrors she’s faced and the lack of support she received from her family. And there were times I didn’t like Vic too much either, but again, ‘screw me once, to hell with you…screw me twice, to hell with me!’ could pretty much be his motto. I don’t want to give too much away, but I think fans of emotional erotica will definitely enjoy this one.
