    One thought on “Slow Burn”

    1. Instagram || Twitter || Facebook || || Pinterest🎃 Read for the Unapologetic Romance Readers Halloween 2017 Reading Challenge for the category of: a romance where one of the characters is a murderer 🎃 Oy, this is disappointing. I really enjoyed Chambers's other two books, KILLING MOON and SKIN AND BLOND. Both were in genres that I'm generally highly skeptical about and the author managed to win me over with dark, tight plotting and stellar characterization. Even though I'm generally leery [...]

Instead, he will use his skills to protect her. Nothing more. Leigh Thorn: If the wrong people find her, she’s dead. But all she want [...]

    3. DNF at 20%Why it did not work for me.Heroine sleeps with random guys and does not even know their names. She like to drink and party heavy. There is a sci-fi elementmething about super soldiers, but I am not sure about that. I could not connect with the characters so I gave up.

    4. Full review to come soon BUT in the meantimeGriffin *STARS IN MY EYES* !!! He's so tough but so broken inside AND MY GOD I LOVED HIM!!!! I mean I loved EVERYTHING about him. I like want me a Griffin NOW!!! And I just gotta say, "Beautiful Disaster meets Nikita" is pretty spot on but THANK GOD not a "pigeon" in site! Although Griffin did keep referring to Leigh as "doll" have I mentioned HOW MUCH I melted every time he did that? Coz, yeah I TOTALLY melted *SIGH* I'll stop rambling now, coz I need [...]

    5. When a book's title says "slow burn" you can count me intrigued. However, if the book starts with a heroine kicking out her one night stand and later snorting said one night stand's cocaine, you can guarantee that I do not want to read about her. Too bad that I'm a lousy blurb reader at times.The author also mentioned some sort of serum that made people kind of immortal in ways that it's very difficult to kill them and while I may be kind of ready to believe this in some sort of made up world, I [...]

    6. I have a feeling this could b a love it or hate it type of book. I liked that it kept me guessing. It was very unpredictable. So many books follow the same formula: love hate then love. I often find myself calling the heroine a dumb bitch in other books. I never felt that way. Leigh made some poor choices that put her in danger but I understood why she made those choices. She wasn't just being naive and a Dumb bitch :) This shit is raw and def not for the faint of heart. There are some heavy top [...]

    7. It was just okay for me. I couldn't relate to Leigh at all. Who is stupid enough to be doing coke when she knows someone is after her? Why should I be in that persons corner and hoping for their survival?

    8. Sheesh this book was horrible. I felt like I was reading something written by a 12 year old. Nothing about this book entertained me. The male constantly calling the female "Doll" and every single choice she made made want want to punch her in the face. Don't even know what else to say.

    9. I think I'm in loveriously this author gets me EACH. AND. EVERY. TIME! I LOVED her Jason and Azazel books and I LOVED THIS ONE (seeing a theme here?). This story was gritty, raw, adrenaline pumping, hot and sexy had it all. Some people may not like the fantasy element to the love story, but that's what I enjoy about V.J. Chambers' books. There's always that part of it that is completely unrealistic but she grounds it in the absolute realism of her characters. So, well done Ms. Chambers.

    10. Pretty intense in terms of violence. Some smut but more action-action stuff as in killing Not for the faint of heart.

    11. Another one of those what-the-fuck-did-I-just-read books. I don't know how in the world I found the strength to finish this book it was unbelievably bad. Sorry :(

    12. 3.5 Stars which I'm bumping to four because Slow Burn features a very sensitive portrayal of m/m rape which is a topic that should not be swept under the carpet. In the media at the moment, there is a lot of outcry at a certain film producer's behaviour towards women. This is absolutely disgusting but we mustn't forget that men can be victims of sexual assault too. The next time I hear a joke about dropping the soap, this is what I shall be thinking about.I have very mixed feelings about Slow Bu [...]

    13. V. J. Chambers Blog ist untertitelt mit 'a little bit of love and a lot more of blood' und das sagt eigentlich auch schon alles über ihre Bücher. Sie sind dunkel, düster und blutig und trotzdem hat man die Hoffnung, dass das Leben am Ende gut wird.Leigh, die Hauptperson ist keine kleine Schlampe, sondern eine große: sie schläft mit ziemlich allem, was zwei Beine hat und nimmt Koks, als wäre es Schokolade. Man könnte nun denken, das liegt daran, dass sie bei einem Autounfall, nur durch ihr [...]

    14. This book was not what I expected. And unfortunately I don't mean that in a good way. Based on the blurb, I was expecting something along the lines of a romance with a mafia princess who needs protection from rivals. Without giving too much away, what I was left reading was a full on sci-fi with almost no romance. Normally I would be ok with the main plot being what it turned out to be. But in this case, there was just too much wrong to overlook. The writing seemedoff. When Griffin was speaking, [...]

    16. Wow, this book has it all.ery, despair, healing, romance, sex. And the combination of it and the characters even brought tears to my eyes. I really thought Griffin's character was so sad and dark. It was easy to see from the beginning that Leigh was different to him. However, with all the twists and turns, it was hard to see if they'd get a HAE. Leigh was your typical rich girl who was ignored by daddy, however with the thought of having nobody left to turn to, she had no choice but to trust the [...]

    17. I found it hard to love this book because I just couldn't stand reading about everyone dying it's supposed to be a romance not a freaking war!!! But I did like the romance part so I had to give it a four love a happy ending!!!

    18. From Daddy, With Love💘Griffin🐺🍌🌋💪🔪🔫 and Leigh💋💔, what a combo. Both are nearly indestructible because of a secret serum💉 developed for military use to make super soldiers. Instead it was used by the corrupt developers to build a team of young assassins🔪🔫 who were then psychologically twisted to suit them for that purpose. All for money💰, power, and revenge. Op Wraith👻Leigh💋💔 wasn't part of that world until she was dying from a drug💊 and alcohol [...]

    19. Good readThis was a book outside of my normal comfort zone. However it kept me interested and it felt like it could be a movie it was so surreal. The author did a good job expressing the vulnerability of these externally beautiful characters by shedding light on their insecurities and experiences that affected them internally.

    20. DNF - got to 20% and decided I wanted that time back. What I did glean was that our heroin was very self destructive and immature. I don't know, maybe she turns into a human further into the story but I wasn't willing to spend any more of my time wading through the muck to find out.

    21. IntriguingFive burning stars! WOW! Dangerously obsessive! Leigh and Griffin struggle through fear and violence to consummate their fated love. Gripping and intense.
