A great start to Erin McCarthy's new hot series
Burn is the first book in Erin McCarthy's South Beach Bodyguards series, and it definitely was one hot quick book to read. The first chapter alone in Burn will have you like 'whoa' because of the characters.
Ryan Harris is a bodyguard who is about to take on a difficult job. He has to protect his former stepsister and from the moment he sees her other side, he knows he'll have a hard time keeping his hands to himself. Isabel Rodriguez is Ryan's former step-sister and she's in danger for some reason. She ends up getting knocked out and not remembering who did it. She's forced to stay with Ryan because of the danger still out there. From the moment these two end up together, Isabel is already naked and Ryan is having to protect not only Isabel from whoever hurt her, but from himself as well.
Erin McCarthy definitely wrote one scorcher, when she wrote Burn. I was a little put off at first due to characters being former stepchildren, but how they were each other definitely helped. I could tell immediately that these two wouldn't get together quickly due to how Ryan was and how timid Isabel was, when she was sober. Don't let the timid girl fool you though because Isabel has a whole another side and it comes out in the beginning of the story. Holy crap! That girl definitely was not timid in the beginning and Ryan was a gentleman, when it came to the first encounter with Isabel.
The drama in the story tended to be in the back burner until the very end of the book. The story more followed along with Ryan's dilemma with Isabel and Isabel trying everything to get Ryan to see her more than a former stepsister. Ryan got on my nerves a bit in the story with the back and forth. I liked Isabel though, she was determined more than ever.
I give this book 4 stars and look forward to diving into the next book in the series. If you're looking for a hot quick book for the winter, you should definitely purchase Burn to read. :)
Easy fun read!
Burn the first in the new South Beach Bodyguard series by Erin McCarthy opens up with quite the hook- Ryan comes home from work and to an intruder in his home- his step-sister, Isabel fully NEKKID taking a shower! Burn's opening was fully entertaining and quickly grabbed my attention! The rest of the story delivers an easy, yet somewhat slow-paced but fun read of smoking hot Ryan stepping up to unravel the mystery surrounding Isabel's amnesia- was it from a fall down the stairs or was it a planned attack? Ryan is determined to learn the truth and keep Isabel safe. In turn having a smexy alpha male going all possessive & protective on you how can one blame Isabel when lust & want ensues?! Erin delightfully carries the reader along in the slow build-up of their relationship and introducing easily like-able side characters along the way to set up for future books to come. All in all I enjoyed Burn and am looking forward to the next in line!
Erin McCarthy does it again!
Erin McCarthy does it again! I have yet to read an Erin McCarthy book that leaves me disappointed! Even though this fad of Step's really annoys me...this one broke the mold. Ryan and Isabella are steps who never really lived in the same home. So they could have been old classmates for all the past history they share. Great fast paced book with lots of tension....fun.....drama.....and hawt fun!
I was given this book in exchange for an honest review.
