Burned by Passion: A BWWM Interracial Romance | [Dez Burke]

Burned by Passion: A BWWM Interracial Romance

Even good girls make mistakes. Kira Taylor was shocked to meet her boss's handsome, long-absent son and find him even more lethal in the flesh. He'd always been just a face in a photo - and nothing had prepared her for the way they clashed and burned when they finally met. Blake Carter returned to America for a reunion with a father he hadn't seen since he was ten. But Blake had never bargained for falling for his father's sexy secretary, the beautiful and impressionable Kira Taylor…

Publisher's Summary

Even good girls make mistakes.

Kira Taylor was shocked to meet her boss's handsome, long-absent son and find him even more lethal in the flesh. He'd always been just a face in a photo - and nothing had prepared her for the way they clashed and burned when they finally met.

Blake Carter returned to America for a reunion with a father he hadn't seen since he was ten. But Blake had never bargained for falling for his father's sexy secretary, the beautiful and impressionable Kira Taylor…

Blake caught one glimpse of the gorgeous beauty from across the crowded room and felt the primal taste of desire like he'd never known. The sparks were more antagonism than attraction on her part as they collided over differences about the way he treated his father. But Blake had very strong persuasive skills when it came to bringing the vulnerable Kira to bend to his carnal passions…

    "Not a Dez Burke best"

    I really like Dez Burke books, because they are short and packed full of romance and great smex. This one is like double the length of her usual work and I think that is where this book went wrong. For the first 3 hrs I was really enjoying the story..but then the story just seem to drag on... Smex wasn't even that good.

    Its a good sale. I'd save a credit for something more satisfying.

    Narration was AWESOME. Laramie is 100% the best narrator for Burke's books... but the book this time was just too long...!!

    "Wow... Just wow!"

    I read Burned By Passion a few months ago and really enjoyed it! Blake and Kira's sex scenes were very steamy and their love was tender and beautiful. I enjoy reading about those push and pull love stories with a little angst... and Burned By Passion definitely delivers. What Kira needed, Blake provided with everything he had--- all his heart and soul. Very sweet story. I also liked Blake's father Bretton and his love for and support of Kira. I enjoyed this book so much that I couldn't wait to listen to the audible edition. I was blown away by Pepper's read!

    Pepper Laramie does an amazing job bringing ALL the characters in this passionate romance to life. Pepper's delivery of Blake's lines is flawless! She captures his British accent extremely well. She injects a wonderfully distinct energy into each character's dialogue; She almost makes it seem like a different person is reading each part! Wonderful job, Pepper! Dez Burke's words + Pepper Laramie's voice = Literary Gold!

    I can hardly wait to hear Pepper read Skin Deep-- my favorite Dez Burke romance. THAT will be literary platinum!!

    I would very recommend the book and the audiobook to my friends. This book was AMAZING while listening with the book.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Burned by Passion?

    That Kira FINALLY got to say I Love you to Blake


    Have you listened to any of Pepper Laramie’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    This the first time I had listen to Ms.Laramie performances and I got to say I like what she was doing when she was narrating Burned by Passion.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Hell ya, this book and the performance by Ms.Laramie and the writer Dez Burke are AMAZING keep up the Great Job.

    "Made one of my favorite books even better"
    Would you listen to Burned by Passion again? Why?

    Yes. I would definitely listen to Burned by Passion again. Not only is this my favorite book by Dez Burke, but the narrators voice wasn't annoying. This was my first time listening to an audio book.


    What did you like best about this story?

    I liked how the narrator changed her voice to inflict each character.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    My absolute favorite scene is when Kira finally comes to gripes on her emotions during her honeymoon with Blake and they make passionate love.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    No I didn't have an extreme reaction to this book. Since I've read this book numerous times, it was just really nice to hear another voice other than my own inside my head.


    Any additional comments?

    Dez Burke is one of my all time favorite authors!!! You made me a believer in audio books.

    "Burn Me..."
    What did you love best about Burned by Passion?

    I absolutely loved Blake and Kira's story. The flow was just right. Nothing happened to fast and nothing dragged out.


    What other book might you compare Burned by Passion to and why?

    I would compare it to Because this is Forever by Lena a Hart. The stories aren't exactly similar other than Kira not initially telling Blake that she pregnant.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    My favorite scene was when Blake was finally able to convince Kira that he wanted them to be together because of love and not because of any obligations.


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

    Burned by Passion works for me.


    Any additional comments?

    I've said this on several occasions when reviewing books by Dez Burke. Dez Burke is a very talented author. I have read just about all of her books and I plan to remedy that within the next couple of months.

    "A one time read (well listen actually)"
    What disappointed you about Burned by Passion?

    The story. Kira mainly, her character was the weakest person I've ever heard of.


    What could Dez Burke have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

    Give Kira a backbone or something to make her a bit more believable. She storms after Blake to admonish him and she can't even carry that job out correctly. She tries to slap him, he stops her, she cries. Seriously. She gets beaten and she blames Blake and even justifies why it was done. Seriously.


    Any additional comments?

    My two biggest issue are Kira and the use of certain words with certain characters. I realize that in moments of complete abandonment people lose all senses and take on a persona uncharacteristic of who they really are. But, seriously. If Blake is as refined as he is, then I'm sure he can express his lust without the vulgar, dirty (and not in a good way) language. I would imagine that someone as well-manicured as Blake would be articulate enough to express his sexual desires and frustrations with Kira.

    Kira, well she should have been better developed.
