Publisher's Summary

Part of a small demon lair in Las Vegas, tattooist Harper Wallis lives a pretty simple life. That changes overnight when she discovers that her psychic mate, or "anchor", is a guy who's rumored to be the most powerful demon in existence. Compelling, full of secrets, and armed with raw sexuality, Knox Thorne is determined to claim her as his anchor, creating a psychic bond that will prevent their inner demons from ever turning rogue.

The billionaire also wants Harper in his bed. She's not so sure she wants either of those things. No one seems to know what breed of demon Knox is, only that he's more dangerous than anything she's ever before encountered. But he refuses to walk away. And when an unknown danger starts closing in on Harper, it seems that Knox is the only one who can keep her safe.

As Prime of his Las Vegas lair and a successful businessman, Knox Thorne is used to getting what he wants, and he wants Harper. He'll have her, and he'll keep her safe from the threat that looms over her. Because Knox protects what's his. He won't allow anyone to take her from him. Even if it will mean letting the demon inside him rise and wreak the havoc it was created to make. Contains mature themes.

love the story but not the narrator

loved the books, have read and re-read them. I was so excited to see this narration available but was disappointed in the narrator's portrayal of Harper. Harper is played out as so whiny and valley high-esque when Harper in the book is supposed to be a non chalant bad a$$. so disappointed.

I really enjoyed the story but the narrator was ba

I really like the story but the narrator suck so bad. Nothing worse then listening to child and kid like voices curse like a sailor and listening to kid voices have sex. The kiddie whiny annoying voices made it feel like I was listening to a 50 year old man rape a 9 year old girl. I am so sorry to have to put it that way but that is just how awful the narration was. The author wrote a good story I was intrigued following a long. I couldn't put it down I really enjoyed the story. I liked it a lot I just hated the narration it could have been so much more so much better with the narrator not using kiddie voices

I just can't with this narrator

This narrator makes the women in this book sound like drunks or teenagers. The men fair no better ... I just can't the book may be good but I can't get past this voice.

I believe authors should have a lot of say in who narrates their books for them because they can make or break a book

Meh

If you like erotica then this book is great, the sex scenes are really well done, however this is under the paranormal romance section . Overall it was a sprinkling of half-hearted story between sex scenes. The romantic development was way too fast and thus made it difficult to invest in. Side charters lacked depth, and the storyline itself was rushed and without real development. Everything revolved around the sex scenes and while I'm all for a good one, if that's all the book is, might as well watch porn... Waste of a credit.

Disappointed

What disappointed you about Burn?

The language was crude. There was a distinct lack of descriptive language. Even the sexual scenes were poorly described and were exceptionally repetitive.

Would you ever listen to anything by Suzanne Wright again?

No.

How could the performance have been better?

The narrator made the main female character sound petulant and adolescent.

What character would you cut from Burn?

The characters all made sense, it was the overall writing and performance that I did not enjoy.

Interesting

What was the most interesting aspect of this story? The least interesting?

shorten book by a good hour or two, mostly by removing the excess sex. More attention on characters and their abilities.

What didn’t you like about Cat Doucette’s performance?

A better narrator would have helped this book. The voice she uses for Harper is whinny and annoying. Cat reminds me of a mix of Tanya Eby and an early version of Angela Dawe. Too sing-song and up and down excitement on words that didn't need it.
Male voices were poor and irritating.

Any additional comments?

I like Suzanne Wright, which is why I got this book even tho the comments about the narrator almost stopped my. The first 2 chapters were the most difficult to get thru before I was able to adjust to the narrator. However, there was too much "sex" as a filler to lengthen the book, and would have much preferred more info on different demons and abilities would have been more interesting to me.

One of the worst narrator's I've heard

TERRIBLE narrator. She detracted from the story and I was extremely disappointed to see that she narrates the entire series. It's infuriating when a good story is performed by an awful narrator. The story started out great, AMAZING. I thought I finally found a PNR with a legitimately strong female character. Then the lead protagonist went from being strong and independent, basing her decisions on her own happiness to being reduced to a scared insecure girl. This could have been an awesome story with a few tweaks. Disappointing. I definitely wanted him to crack her, but not in the way it happened. Her overtly hinting that she wasnt rejected him because it's what she wanted but because "hed just get tired of her and she couldn't blame him". HE FUCKING BRANDED HER and her concern was thinking "it annoyed him" for her to have his brand on her versus the fact that he branded her when they had no emotional bond or relationship whatsoever. What's more infuriating is that every single PNR I've read with female protagonists like this (insecure, low self worth, self debasing, their entire self image being based on what a man thinks? etc.) are all written by women.

WHAT DID THEY DO!!!

What would have made Burn better?

Not having ridiculous voices. They were like cartoon voices (especially Harper's friends and family) and why on earth was Harper made to sound like a whiney 13 year old? WHY!

What did you like best about this story?

The story is amazing.

Would you be willing to try another one of Cat Doucette’s performances?

Most likely not - I would be very suspicious of any her performances if they all resemble this.

There could be a story...

The narrator sounds too much like a child for books like this. Listening to her is like I'm listening to a narrator for children's book. I often had to rewind because I would get caught up on the way she was talking rather than how the story would unfold. I read/listen to A LOT of paranormal romance such as Charlaine Harris, Dannika Dark, Jeaniene Frost, etc., and this has been one of the most difficult sex scenes to listen to because of how vulgar some of it can be and I may be a little too sheltered for that! lol I like to listen on my echo and I was glad I listened to this while my kids were at their dads this week because of how many there were.... I think if she would tone down on some of the sex scenes, focus more on the story, and get a different narrator, then this series might not be so bad. I still can't decide if I want to continue the series or not.
