Book Blurb:
Chloe Addison is on the verge of a promising career in real estate development until an explosion destroys her first major project and casts suspicion on her in an arson investigation. Her career is suddenly at risk—and possibly her life. 

Firefighter Ryan Monroe wants a spot on the arson team, and getting close to Chloe might be the best way to solve his first investigation. Despite a painful past of his own, Ryan has dedicated himself to saving people, and when he realizes Chloe is in danger, she’s no exception. He just might be the perfect guy to rescue her, but their attraction could bring them both down in flames.

  Oh. My. Goodness. "Burn," is a novel that completely lives up to its title as the romance was smoldering hot, the chemistry was blistering and the sensual scenes were completely off the charts! In short, "Burn" is the contemporary romance novel that I have been waiting for and author, Dawn Altieri delivered! 

  Before this novel's release, I was not thrilled with the way modern-day authors were writing the firefighter theme as I need so much more. I needed a hero like Ryan as in "Burn," hot, widely attractive and confident in his profession. I also needed to be swept-off-my-feet by firehouse sex, mystery and let's be honest the romance! Now, that "Burn" is open to readers I have to highly encourage everyone to read this novel. It is so tempting, so sinfully devouring that there is zero room for regrets.

   To discuss a little about Chloe, the heroine, I vastly enjoyed her character. Chloe had suffered dramatically at the hands of abuse and yet she was strong-willed. She used the demons of her past to keep moving forward with her life. Yet, I still favored how she relied upon Ryan to help her during the arson investigation that is the central focus of the plot. The fact that Chloe was a prime suspect was deeply entertaining and I loved how both she and Ryan had to work together to discover the identity of the arsonist as this small detail allowed the romance to be the true spotlight of the book.

In honesty, I cannot say enough about "Burn." It was all that I could have ever wanted in a romance novel and much more.
