rom the New York Times and USA Today bestselling author of the Driven series.
One Night. That's all it was supposed to be.
Reeling from the sudden loss of her sister, Haddie Montgomery has sworn off relationships. All she wanted from Beckett Daniels was a sexy distraction to help her escape her pain for just a little while....There weren’t supposed to be any strings attached—so why can’t she shake the memory of that unforgettable night from her thoughts? Or the taste of his kiss from her lips?
No matter how hard Haddie tries to forget about him, Becks relentlessly tries to prove that she should start living for today. But she is determined to avoid romantic commitment, and she can always use her ex-boyfriend’s reappearance to help snuff out the slow burn within her that Becks has sparked....
Or will fate force her to realize that this kind of connection doesn’t come along very often and a chance at love is worth the risk?
Slow Burn has been on my Kindle for a few months now and so I figured why not pick it up for my #cleanoffyourkindle review this month. But this month I did things a bit different, listening to 1/2 of this book on audio and reading the other 1/2.
This book follows Becks and Hattie from the Driven series. They are the two best friends of Rylee and Colton from the first books in the series.
I was actually looking forward to this book because Becks was one of my favorites, with his witty country boy sarcasm.
“Haddie, everything about you makes me want to beg to take you…to fu** you into oblivion so thoroughly that you forget your own name because you’re so goddamn busy moaning mine.”
The start of this book is super sexy with Hattie and Becks giving into their explosive chemistry on the night of Rylee and Colton’s wedding. Hattie makes sure Becks realizes that this is a one-time encounter and that they need to keep things simple after the night. What was a little bit irritating was that she then proceeded to tell and think the same thing for the next 5-6 chapters and pretty much through the first half of the book. It was kind of like, okay we get it you want things to stay simple, let’s not repeat it anymore; really and truly lets just not and please stop pushing Beck’s away.
Hattie is dealing with a lot and this might be some of her reason for not letting Becks in. She recently lost her sister from Breast Cancer and is feeling the loss from Rylee not being in her life full time now that she is married and living somewhere else; so pushing Becks away seems like the easiest thing for her to do, to protect herself from any further heartbreak.
Thankfully Becks isn’t willing to go away that easily; especially when he realizes that Haddie has the voodoo pussy, just like Rylee had the same thing to Colton.
“You don’t get to choose the people that care about you. You don’t get to make choices for others, tell them how to feel or, better yet, block them out because of what you think they’ll go through.”
The next book in the series will be about Quinlan Westin and Hawkin Play, and will be out June 2nd.
