The third book in the beloved number-one best-selling author's sexy, romantic suspense Slow Burn series...
They say young love doesn't last, but a girl from the wrong side of the tracks with unique abilities and the hometown golden boy were determined to defy the odds. For Zack Covington, Anna-Grace - his "Gracie" - was the one. Until one night forever alters the course of their future, when a devastated Gracie disappears without a trace, leaving Zack to agonize over what happened to the girl he loved. As the years pass, his desperate efforts to find her uncover nothing.
Now working for Devereaux Security, he stumbles across a painting featuring a special place only he and Gracie would know. The image is too perfectly rendered for it to be coincidence. His Gracie must be alive. When he finally tracks her down, he is shocked - and heartbroken - to discover the wounded shell of the girl he once knew and still loves. Her psychic gifts are gone, and worse, she believes he betrayed her all those years ago.
Zack has enemies, and once his weakness is discovered, Gracie becomes a target for revenge. He'll have to save her before he can earn her trust and her love. And he vows they'll never be torn apart again.

The Segway between the books confused me. I don't remember Zach off hand in the previous books. I should have listened to book 1amd 2 before taking on 3.
Seriously- 2/3rds of the way thru this book and nothing but whine, angst, whine and more angst. Bored out of my mind. Gracie needs to have an adult, articulate conversation and Zachary needs to get a really strong grip. Ugh...
I have NEVER disliked on of Maya's book before but this one I just didn't like. The woman lead was annoying and her thought processes made zero sense. I get that she is damaged from her past but it was unrealistic. Also the hammering on and on about Zack's feelings about their relationship... WE GET IT!!! He didn't like the girl!
This book just was a let down to the 2 previous in the series. There were threads that the story could have picked up that were left untouched making a very two dimensional and predictable plot. Very dissatisfying.
In addition, I am not a fan of the narrator. He has passion in his inflections that help but for some reason he just sounded like Charlie Sheen reading a book. It was distracting. Worse with the drool story writing.
Sorry to be so negative but I am very disappointed.
Do authors think we r stupid or do they lack the intelligence of filling all the pages with original thought. It was difficult to listen to the characters say the same thing over and over through out the book. The only information necessary to repeat is info from previous books
Otherwise it was a good story line with twists and turns
I found myself waiting for more but it never came. I kind of felt something was missing ( a little like I was left hanging)
Say something about yourself!
This was supposed to be a romance there was no romance in this book. It was two people thinking to themselves throughout the book. There was some good Mistry and dramag. But it is not what I expected from a Maya Banks. There was one love scene in the whole book which was the last 10 minutes. Needless to say I was very disappointed with this book compared to all her other ones. I won't listen to it again so I think I will return it.
The storyline was great, the reading was fantastic, but what I don't understand is how a talented writer can have so much absolutely unnecessary fluff in one book it boggles my mind. There has been several occasions where I was ready to stop listening. It's like having a conversation with someone who keeps saying "you know" after every word. Please minimize the fluff!!!!!
I consider these books to be over the top, 'bravado' 'mine-mine-mine' quickies. Quick, afternoon reads. Entertaining...and impossible fiction ... with juicy bits. :) You could make a drinking game out of The Use of the word 'utterly'....but you might die from alcohol poisoning. :) This series made me laugh even though it wasn't a comedy....but entertainment is in the eye of the beholder. Heehee.
It took much too long to get to the meat of the story. Not near enough action. When the *silent* organization was taken down, there weren't enough details (did they get all or just a fraction of them). Are all these women connected to that experiment? Are there others? Did the government have a hand in this? Too much missing from this story.
"slow burn no3"
This is the last book in a series of 3 books.
each book has a great story and I look forward to a book no :4.
