Hmmmm I'm not sure what I expected from this book. But it sure wasn't what I got from reading it. And no I don't mean that in a bad way. I want to say author Bella Love-Wins is a new author to me. I had never heard of her before having a Spotlight spot for Burnt on my blog a couple weeks ago. Now on with my review.....
Burnt starts off with Tara and Kevin finishing up the first part of their college years in Alaska. Both of them studing in the same career field. Before they both move on to Montana. Until Kevin finds out that he failed the course and has to retake it. Where than Kevin and Tara return home and some murders start happening. I loved the great friendship you could feel between Kevin and Tara right away. You could also feel the chemistry between the two of them, even if they both were denying the attraction.
So usually in my reviews this would be where I split up the main characters and say why I like them individually. But I'm not going to this time. I will say this I liked both Kevin and Tara right off the bat. Even though their college aged, their both driven, they both obviously know what they want in life, their both focused. And their both a bit stubborn.
I will say this I was a worried at the start of this book. It started a little bit slow, at least to me. But by the end of the first chapter it had definitely grabbed my attention. And than picked up from there. I'm not sure what was going on with the parents in this book. They were definitely a mystery to me. Both Kevin's parents and Tara's mom didn't seem to like either of them. Yeah they were a little fishy to me.
I'd give Burnt 3.5 Out of 5 stars. There's a little bit of drama, a little bit of mystery, and some smoking Hot smexy scenes. I can't wait to read the next one in this series to see what happens next!!!!
