They meet by chance. The timing is wrong. Three years later, she finds him again, but their separation was poisoned with narcotics and bloodied by enslavement. Her freedom gambled away, Charlee Grosky escapes the international businessman who held her captive. But his power reaches beyond her protective barriers and threatens everyone she has come to love. Jay Mayard wears his tortured secrets under his rock god facade. Drugs are his release, even as he seeks to be the man forged of the steel only she can see. In a celebrity world filled with paparazzi, groupies, and drugs, Jay and Charlee must face their worst fears. When the battle is over, what will be left...Beneath The Burn.
A woman with a white-blonde pixie haircut backed out of the shop and dammit if he couldn’t stop himself from gawking. She was slender, but not in a bones-pressing-skin kind of way. She had a figure that could only be toned with good nutrition and rigorous activity. Oh yeah, she was built for stamina.
She locked the door, and turned toward him, tipping back her head.
The bluest eyes he’d ever seen stared up at him. They were ringed with navy and glimmered with silver flecks. They were also wide with...fear? No, that couldn’t be it if her smile were anything to go by. Her beautiful face seemed to swallow up the glow of the streetlamps, the passing headlights, the goddamned moon.
“Hi.” Her smile wavered. “You look lost. Can I help?”
Oh Christ, her voice. It was the complete package, like the full-bodied Fsus2 chord humming from the hole in his Martin Acoustic. Gentle, cool, hypnotic—
“You’re lost, right?”
She had no idea. “Just found what I’m looking for.” Smooth, Jay. What the hell was he doing?
What can I even say about Beneath The Burn??? All of the usual adjectives CANNOT possibly describe this book!!! Wowwy... Wow... Wow, Amazeball, AWESOMESAUCE... None of them give this book justice! I laughed, cried, U-G-L-Y cried, and wanted things that other books have not made me feel! I literally read this book in one sitting. I didn't bookmark, didn't take a break, and didn't feel like I was breathing at times!!
Beneath the Burn has so many secrets I can't even begin to hint around about what they may be and who could be holding them. This could possibly be the shortest review I have ever written, but not because I don't have a lot to say! I want everyone to read this book like yesterday!! Jay is A HAWT mess!! He is the sexiest man EVER but has the deepest scars, secrets, and issues as well! Charlee is a strong heroine that does need to rely on a man or anyone else, but has a way of making everyone want to take care of her... Needed or not. She has been through hell and back and I think is exactly what Jay needs!! If you have read Devoured... You will absolutely LOVE Beneath the Burn!!
Jay and Charlee are an amazingly hot couple that brought me to smiles, major blushing, and some of the ugliest tears I have ever cried while reading a book! The entire cast of characters are lovable, I wanted to hug and make out with several of them. ;) This book quickly climbed its way into my top 5 faves!!
I easily give Beneath the Burn 5 stars on the knock my socks off scale!! You need to 1- Click and READ this book STAT!!! I will give you a hint... About 86% into this book I had to lay my Kindle down and regain my composure I was so distraught! I never knew what was going to happen, and that is exactly why I could not put this book down!!! Beneath the Burn is an amazingly written, awesomely HAWT book with a generous side of SHUT THE FRONT DOOR!!!!
