Burn | [Linda Howard]

Burn

Money certainly changes Jenner Redwine's life when she wins a lottery jackpot. But it also costs her plenty: Her father rips her off and disappears, her fortune-hunting boyfriend soon becomes her ex, and friends-turned-freeloaders give her the cold shoulder when she stops paying for everything. Flush with new money, Jenner can't imagine ever finding a place in the world of the wealthy. Seven years later, though, she's rubbing elbows with the rich, despite the fact she still feels like a party crasher.

Publisher's Summary

Money certainly changes Jenner Redwine's life when she wins a lottery jackpot. But it also costs her plenty: Her father rips her off and disappears, her fortune-hunting boyfriend soon becomes her ex, and friends-turned-freeloaders give her the cold shoulder when she stops paying for everything.

Flush with new money, Jenner can't imagine ever finding a place in the world of the wealthy. Seven years later, though, she's rubbing elbows with the rich, despite the fact she still feels like a party crasher. Luckily she finds an ally - and a guide to the rarefied realm of privilege - in shy, kind-hearted heiress Sydney Hazlett, who quickly becomes Jenner's confidante and surrogate sister.

When Sydney invites Jenner on a charity cruise aboard a luxury liner, Jenner reluctantly agrees. But while she's expecting - and dreading - two weeks of masquerade balls, art auctions, and preening glitterati, what she gets is more like a Hitchcock movie than a Love Boat episode.

Taken hostage by a menacing stranger, Jenner must cooperate in a mysterious cloak-and-dagger scheme - or else. With nowhere to run, and with Sydney's life as well as her own at risk, Jenner is drawn into a game of dizzying intrigue and harrowing danger. But as her panic gives way to exhilaration, and fear of her captor turns to fascination, Jenner rediscovers feelings she hasn't had in years - and realizes she's found a life worth living. If she survives.

    "UGH!"

    It is hours and hours and hours of the main Character and the main Villain lusting after each other while hating each other. The book was boring and simple.

    "Great start, lousy finish"

    I wanted to like this book. I did. But it's not one of Linda Howard's best. The main character's story in the first section of the book is good and well developed and interesting, but I didn't feel like there was any point to the relationship between the two main characters beyond a few sex scenes. It felt more like a train wreck in the making than any sort of romance, that the characters were "in lust" rather than love, and the author just wanted to finish the book.

    "silly fun light reading"

    if you're looking for a light simple book you don't really need to pay attention fully to, then this is easy listen to finish the summer out with. It's entertaining.it's a Life Time channel movie in waiting.
    I admit to finding the beginning of the books back story more compelling then the 'action' and silly love story that comprise most of the listen.

    "Hot"

    I have been reading Linda Howards books for years. She has changed some, but it was for the good. This one seems like it is starting out slow, but its not. All of the preview is necessary for the ending, or what appears to be the ending. Please keep up the good work.

    "loved it"

    Linda Howard has a special way to involve you in the story from the get go and this one is no different. This one is great for audio.

    I love to read but I have found I love to listen even more. The Outlander series are my favorite books of all time.

    "Narration ruined it"

    Joyce Bean is a great narrator but she sounds like a 60 year old with a cigarette in one hand and a scotch in the other, not like a twenty or even 30 something heroine. Not well cast.

    sexy, thrilling, brilliant


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Jenner: sassy and no-nonsense


    What about Joyce Bean’s performance did you like?

    easy to listen to and not monotonous


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

    not sure what it would be, but i would watch it. edge of your seat sexy!


    Any additional comments?

    "Burn out"
    What did you like best about Burn? What did you like least?

    This would have been a good fiction novel but it is not a romance novel. If you removed the sudden "love and forever" between the two characters it is a decent story, I just couldn't get over the rush ending. It was like LH ran out of patience with the writing and gave up.


    What was most disappointing about Linda Howard’s story?

    LH is my favorite author, but this fell very short. There's no character chemistry as in her other books. The main characters hate each and then BAM they're in love, not even hopeless romantic me could buy it.


    What about Joyce Bean’s performance did you like?

    Joyce Bean is one of my favorite narrators and did a great job as usual.
