    Unique, interesting storyline

    I loved the premise of Once Burned, the sixth standalone in Miss Witt’s Anchor Point series. So far I’ve read four titles in the series and liked the characters in all of them, but what makes this a must read series for me and any fan of military romance is the variety of storylines and characters. Miss Witt does a wonderful job capturing the different personalities, stories, lives, and experiences within the military. Once Burned offered a really unique storyline that explored the experiences of members of the US military who join and fight for the country in hopes of becoming a US citizen and securing a better life for themselves. It was an unexpected and unique plotline for a military romance with interesting, likable characters that I immensely enjoyed. Once Burned features a romance between a former service member and an active duty naval officer. After being intrigued by Diego in Gone Overboard, I was excited to read his full story, but I definitely wasn’t expecting all I learned. Though the bulk of the angst focuses on Diego’s Green Card status and his anxiety surrounding the possibility of deportation, the story felt balanced between the heroes. Mark and Diego were equally well-flushed out, each with their personal challenges and a detailed backstory. I really liked them as a couple and thought their relationship developed at a steady, believable pace. My only hang-up was some aspects and sore spots in their relationship got to be a tad repetitious as the book progressed, particularly the descriptions of these issues and how they impacted the characters. However, the writing, dialogue, and plot came together very smoothly to create an incredibly unique and interesting story I’d definitely recommend to anyone who enjoys military romances or simply wants a different, unexpected storyline. *Reviewed for Alpha Book Club*

    Sensual, pensive, and timely!

    Once Burned is an emotional romance featuring the recently divorced, newly promoted Captain Mark Thomas, and the wounded, disheartened Diego Ramírez as they discover that some things are worth fighting for and together they can overcome anything. The writing is clear and precise. The characters are diligent, lonely, and skeptical. And the alluring plot is filled with flirty banter, longing, desire, doubt, angst, military politics, PTSD, compassion, support, friendship, and love. Once Burned is the sixth novel in the Anchor Point series and is not only a smoulderingly sexy read but a thought-provoking one as it tackles and highlights the injustice faced by immigrants who put their lives on the line for the American government only to be unacknowledged, uncompensated, and unsupported when injured and discharged due to a convenient loophole that doesn't recognize them as U.S. citizens.
