TURN AND BURN is not simply about overcoming the fear of falling in love; it also deals with facing your fears. Turn and Burn is Tanna and Fletch's story. Tanna Barker experienced a disastrous injury that has manifested into a full-blown phobia of horses. She has lost her love for barrel racing as the rest of her world falls apart. Unexpectedly, her mother dies, then her father remarries and has sold the ranch, leaving her feeling adrift with no real purpose. She stumbles on August Fletcher, a veterinarian in a hot one-night stand but after that explosive night of chemistry, both of them are wondering if this could be something more.

He was supposed to still mourn a baby sister who died of cancer yet he treated most women with contempt.

I find it annoying when an author creates a strong female character, then has that same woman do things that are totally out of character. Liberty was not a meek, pathetic wimp. I found the sex scenes particularly creepy and cold; Devin was controlling and degrading with no hint of humor, tenderness or affection. Not sexy, not romantic!
