Burn

by Maya Banks

Penguin Publishing Group | August 6, 2013 | Trade Paperback

Burn is rated 3 out of 5 by 4.
Ash, Jace, and Gabe: three of the wealthiest, most powerful men in the country. They’re accustomed to getting anything they want. Anything at all. For Ash, it’s the woman who changes everything he’s ever known about dominance and desire...

When it comes to sex, Ash McIntyre has always explored his wilder side—extreme and uncompromising. He demands control. And he prefers women who want it like that. Even the women he’s shared with his best friend, Jace.

But Jace is involved with a woman he has no intention of sharing. And now even Gabe has settled into a relationship with a woman who gives him everything he needs, leaving Ash feeling restless and unfulfilled.

Then Ash meets Josie, who seems immune to his charms and his wealth. Intrigued, he begins a relentless pursuit, determined she won’t be the one who got away. He never imagined the one woman to tell him no would be the only woman who’d ever drive him to the edge of desire.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Glad the series is over This series has been entirely average. I didn't care for book 1 or 2, but pressed on to book 3 as Ash was the most likeable character in the first two books and this novel was supposed to be all about him. Unfortunately, the light-hearted, witty and loveable Ash was written as a broody, dark and domineering version of the character, much like Gabe and Jace were in earlier installments. I'm growing weary of these "instant attraction" type novels where the sex starts in chapter 2. There was zero plot, lots of uncomfortable sex, and then a complete 180 in the last 20% of the book, where the author tried to tie together the series and make an effort to have the books do something other than stand alone. The series did not leave me "breathless" and was a fail for me.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Big disappointment - haven't even finished it I have to say this book has been a huge let down. It is really dragging and I find it quite boring and very predictable. So far I've only made it to chapter 14. Usually I have a hard time putting a book down when I read, with this book I'm having a hard time reading more than a chapter or two at a time. Not sure if I'll ever finish it, which is very rare for me.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from it was OK this was the final book in the series and i must say i was a little disappointed. this book seemed to be drawn out just so the character could have his turn int he spot light. After reading the first two books and their stories, this was a boring read which i put down many times because it seemed to be going nowhere.

Read from the Book

Ash McIntyre stood on the concrete walkway of Bryant Park, hands stuffed into his slacks pockets as he breathed in the spring air. There was still a nip in the wind, carrying with it hints of winter fading to spring. Around him, people sat on benches and in chairs at the small tables where they drank coffee, worked on laptops or were listening to iPods. It was an absolutely gorgeous day, not that he usually indulged in things like a walk in the park or even being in a park, especially during business hours when he was usually entrenched in his office, on the phone or typing emails or making plans to travel. He wasn’t a “stop and smell the roses” kind of guy. But today he was restless and cagey, he had a lot on his mind, and he’d found himself here without really realizing that he’d planned to end up in the park. Mia and Gabe’s wedding was a few short days away, and his business partner was up to his eyeballs in wedding preparations as he sought to ensure Mia had the wedding of her dreams. And Jace? His other best friend and business partner was in a very permanent relationship with his fiancée, Bethany, which meant that his two friends were otherwise occupied. When they weren’t working, they were with their women, and it meant that Ash didn’t see them except at the office and on the occasions they all got together outside of work. They were still close, and Gabe and Jace ensured they’d stayed solid, including him in t
