    Not lived up to the anticipation!

    I love her books, but this one was, I am ashamed to say tedious to read. It is not a word I am accustomed to saying about her books. The plot was incredibly thin with lots of fight scenes, I felt that she kept adding another one when she didn't know what else to do. Predictable and to make it worse it just stopped, no wind down, no real impression of leading into the next story. Just one minute they are fighting for their live's then they are sipping wine. Also they are saying goodbye to someone the next thing he managed to appear on an airplane with them!! Bit of proofreading missed that blooper. I look forward to the next one in the hope that it will return to her excellent story telling.

    Not my fave of the series but a good read

    Nick, a Demon, and Simone, a Witch, were lovers until fate intervened a century ago. On the eve of proposing to Simone, Nick was told by a prophetess that if he didn't follow a certain course of action, Simone would die. To protect her, he broke things off and for the next hundred years worked tirelessly and ruthlessly to bring about the current stability between the various immortals. Vampires, Witches, Demons and Shifters now co-exist relatively peaceably, after intrigue, fighting and ultimately a war that cost many lives. Power struggles among and inside the various factions were often steered by Nick in his fight to get Zane to be head of the Demon Realm, with him as second in command. Now, someone has targeted Simone and accused her of treason, which is punishable by beheading if she is found guilty. After decades of protecting her from the sidelines without her knowledge, Nick isn’t going let all his hard work go to waste. Determined to be part of her life once more, he'll give up his own life before letting her be harmed. Having been devastated by Nick's abrupt dismissal of her years before, Simone is wary (rightfully so) of getting involved with him again. Can Nick convince her that this time he won’t break her heart? I love a good second chance romance, and Nick has his work cut out for him in having to prove to Simone that he's worth the risk. A ruthless demon, he is determined, strong, protective and willing to do anything to get what he wants. He's sacrificed his own happiness for long enough and he wants Simone back in his life, and his bed. He's not going to give up on her easily, even though she is wary of accepting him back into her life on an intimate level. Simone is a strong, courageous and passionate woman. She's a witch and has a position that she's worked hard for on the Coven Nine, so to be accused by her peers of treason is a devastating blow. Her mother is the leader of the witches and obviously on Simone's side in the case against her, though she has some secrets which, when revealed, change Simone's beliefs about her past and possible future with Nick. When she and Nick are together though, it's easy to forget that they've ever been apart. Their sex scenes are very steamy, and they definitely have chemistry together. Nick is a demanding lover, but Simone isn't afraid to push back and they are equal partners in the bedroom. Unfortunately, this novel suffers from an overabundance of characters, right from the start. The focus on the main couple is diluted by the introduction of a lot of characters I assume are there as a kind of “check-in” for readers of the Dark Protectors series. I don’t remember having this problem with the other two books, but here there are suddenly lots of unfamiliar names front and center. Now granted, some of this has to do with Simone's position on the Coven Nine and these are her cousins and friends, but for a newcomer to either series, it is confusing. Fortunately things settle down, though every now and then another name is thrown in that I didn't recognize and made me wish for a glossary of all the characters in all the books to date that are interconnected. I do plan to read the Dark Protectors series because I quite like the world building the author puts into her stories, but it's lengthy and so is my TBR pile. Similarly, the plot seems to be scattered. The overall story arc of the series deals with a drug called Apollo, which contains the ingredient planekite - a fatal ingredient to humans and more importantly, to witches. Part of the story deals with the treasonous implications of Simone's possible involvement with planekite mines. While the case against her is central to the story, the introduction of yet more new characters and Simone's family and heritage run away with the plotline in an entirely new and unexpected direction. While the intent is to add something fresh and exciting to the novel (it did give me a few eyebrow raising scenes), it seems as though the story is trying to be too many things at once and loses its focus. Simone and Nick get a happy ending, but the plot is left with lots of holes to fill. In the end, Nick's character saves the book as I like him enough to counter the negatives. He proves time and time again to be a worthwhile mate for Simone. Wicked Burn is the weakest entry in the series to date for me, but I still plan to continue the series and hope the next one has a tighter, less convoluted plot.

    Paranormal Romantic Suspense

    Action-packed suspense abounded in this novel! This story has everything! • Passion • Suspense • Steamy encounters • Shapeshifters • Witches • Treachery • Trials • Good guys • Bad guys • Unveilings • Family • Friendships • Demons • Tenderness • Love • And a whole lot more Simone and Nick were meant to be together even though they had to spend a century apart before they could have their happily ever after. Some characters from previous books in the series reappear and new characters are introduced. I am eager to read “Bear’s” story and hope his will be next in line. Thank you to NetGalley and Kensington Books for the copy of this novel in exchange for my honest review.
