Ten years ago Delia’s life went up in smoke. Literally.
After a decade of hiding, she is forced back into the world.
With only her wits to guide her, she must now figure out how to live in a town that knows her only as a murderer.
Her family is gone. The people all fear her. She has nothing holding her in Sunny Shores...until she meets Liam.
He’s heard the stories. He knows he should stay away from her, but he’s drawn to her like a moth to a flame.
Life seems to be looking up for them...until her past comes back like a bitch slap to the face.
I loved this book!! Absolutely adored Delia... she has spunk I tell ya!! and Liam... Oh my gawd!! *sweats and pants* :D I was at the beginning thinking Liam to basically be one of those good looking asshole types, but he really isn't!! I wished that there was more of this book, or that there was a series as I wanted to be able to explore the characters a bit more, however even with that in mind I was constantly wondering whether Delia was going to be able to straighten her crap out long enough to be able to move forward and Liam and his secrets... I was so overcome with so many different emotions in this book it was unreal!! Even though not every character got their happily ever after, I loved the mystery and twists that came with Burn Out. However I will definitely be reading other works by Ruthi Kight and have high hopes for the next book I read by her!
I give this book 4.5 Stars!!
With my thoughts running amok, my cheeks began to feel warm, betraying me. The heat spread from one side to the other quickly, giving my face a nice rosy glow. He chuckled and I almost came apart. Did this man have any idea what that one small sound did to a girl? I bet he did, he had to, given his current shit-eating grin. There was no way that he couldn’t know. Guys like him knew they were walking fuck-me advertisements.“Careful. It’s a little too soon to fall for me.” He smiled, dimples and all, and I nearly lost it again. Dimples! I was in serious trouble already and I hadn’t been out of the loony bin for an hour yet.“Not likely,” I replied. I righted myself and leaned back casually. “Are you planning on being here long?”He quickly scanned my face, and then returned his focus to the book in his hands. “Not sure. Ask me again in an hour.”Argh! Infuriating and sexy as hell? Great combo. My head told me to walk away, but my traitorous body was trying to convince me to inch closer to him. With a quick scoot, I was mere inches from him, our legs nearly touching.“Whatcha reading?” I tried to get a look at the book, but he closed it before I could figure out what it was.“Homer.”“Simpson?”A slow grin spread across his face. “As in The Odyssey. Greek epic poem…ring any bells?”“No. The only Homer I know is married to a woman with a giant blue beehive.”With a shake of his head, he opened his book once again. “Sheltered?”His attitude was really starting to piss me off. “No. Unless you consider ten years in the wacky shack as sheltered.” I had expected my words to have some sort of impact. Nothing. He didn't even flinch.
