Publisher's Summary

Ash, Jace, and Gabe: three of the wealthiest, most powerful men in the country. They're accustomed to getting anything they want. Anything at all. For Ash, it's the woman who changes everything he’s ever known about dominance and desire....

When it comes to sex, Ash McIntyre has always explored his wilder side - extreme and uncompromising. He demands control. And he prefers women who want it like that. Even the ones he's shared with his best friend, Jace.

But Jace is involved with a woman he has no intention of sharing. And now even Gabe has settled into a relationship with someone who gives him everything he needs, leaving Ash feeling restless and unfulfilled.

Then Ash meets Josie, who seems immune to his charms and his wealth. Intrigued, he begins a relentless pursuit, determined she won’t be the one who got away. He never imagined the one woman to tell him no would be the only woman who’d ever drive him to the edge of desire.

    "Disappointed"
    Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

    I loved how the series was going with the first two books. Burn seemed like it was ...well. rushed, like She ran out of ideas of where to go with it. The story was just good. instead of the awesome I was expecting. I REALLY wanted to loved , but just like it and over all it was a let down to the series build up.


    What do you think your next listen will be?

    Not sure but something along the lines of Maya, Nora, J.R....

    "A little more kink this time around."
    Would you try another book from Maya Banks and/or Adam Paul?

    I forced myself to finish this trilogy and I see there may be another in the future from listening. Maya Banks books are pretty much the same so when I need a break from a suspenseful thriller or the supernatural I will listen to one of her stories....but Adam Paul just sounds creepy and I don't think I would listen if he were the narrator.


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

    These stories are not very interesting they are titillating and you pretty much know what you are in for when you choose a listen from Ms. Banks.


    Would you be willing to try another one of Adam Paul’s performances?

    No, like I said above he sounds creepy.


    If this book were a movie would you go see it?

    Well it would be behind the curtains in the video store and do they even show xxx-rated movies anywhere anymore?

    Well it's actually not Dan. It's his wife who can't figure out how to change that on the profile. But I love to read and listen to books.

    "Unexpected ending"
    Would you listen to Burn again? Why?

    Yes, I have enjoyed the trilogy. I liked how you continued to learn about the characters from the previous books.


    What did you like best about this story?

    I liked the unexpected conflict in this book.


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

    I have listened to Adam Paul in all three books. He did a great job with each character's voice.


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

    No crying or laughing. There were parts that were intense.


    Any additional comments?

    I felt this was a good ending to all three books and I liked how they were all tied together.

    "Not my cup of tea"
    Would you try another book from Maya Banks and/or Adam Paul?

    I could not get in to this book. First, it was tending toward a Shades of Gray type book. I also could not buy the story line. I was figuratively rolling my eyes before the third chapter. I'm sure many will probably like the book. It just wasn't appealing to me. I don't think I will buy this author's books again.


    Would you ever listen to anything by Maya Banks again?

    Probably not


    Would you be willing to try another one of Adam Paul’s performances?

    Not sure

    "WONDERFUL COMPELLING ENDING TO AN INTENSE TRILOGY"

    Yet again Maya Bank's crafts another well-written awesome book that has passion, hot hot sex, danger, romance, tension, comedy and fills it with the main characters having both sexual and sensual chemistry by the bucket full and the story just seamlessly flowed into an intense action-packed listen. You can't help but become emotionally invested in her characters and the trials and tribulations they inevitably become involved in as their love story slowly and deliciously unfolds.

    Ash, an alpha male whose complex, handsome, dominant, filthy rich, controlling, very charismatic and tortured by his past but he feels something's missing from his life - then he sees Josie across the Park and finally all the pieces suddenly fit together and, as their eyes meet, it was lust, and maybe love, at first sight. He was a tender, thoughtful, protective but a dominant lover and that's just how Josie wanted it. That is until secrets and betrayal threatened everything but worse was yet to come as a previous enemy seeks revenge and launches an attack that was shocking and nearly ruined all three men's perfect lives.

    Very plot invested secondary characters who brought a lot of fun, drama and depth to the storyline without drowning it. Not really a stand-alone listen.

    Worth a credit? Yes it would've been but my 'under $10' rule applied so I just bought it and very glad I did as Ash is both my Forbidden Fantasy and my Knight in Shining Armour and it's been a great series.

    "Romantica at Its Best"

    This series is full of alpha males, steamy sex, suspense and laughter, and this book is the best of the three. Each of the female lead characters have different personalities, but have one thing in common-- attraction to dominant men. It makes for a great listen. The ending was one that I didn't anticipate, and I liked that too. Adam Paul is a good narrator. Well worth the credit, but start at the beginning of the trilogy and listen to them all-- you won't be disappointed.

    "Breathless Series Perfect 4 Fans of Hot Steamy Sex"
    What did you love best about Burn?

    This is the third installment in the Breathless Series-A Series that isn't more than it claims to be. These are not complex, challenging books to listen to. The characters are not super deep...if you are looking for an easy read with straight forward plot that is mostly about sex-this is it.


    Ash, Jace, and Gabe: three of the wealthiest, most powerful men in the country. They're accustomed to getting anything they want. Anything at all. For Ash, it's the woman who changes everything he’s ever known about dominance and desire....

    When it comes to sex, Ash McIntyre has always explored his wilder side - extreme and uncompromising. He demands control. And he prefers women who want it like that. Even the ones he's shared with his best friend, Jace.

    But Jace is involved with a woman he has no intention of sharing. And now even Gabe has settled into a relationship with someone who gives him everything he needs, leaving Ash feeling restless and unfulfilled.

    Then Ash meets Josie, who seems immune to his charms and his wealth. Intrigued, he begins a relentless pursuit, determined she won’t be the one who got away. He never imagined the one woman to tell him no would be the only woman who’d ever drive him to the edge of desire.

    What other book might you compare Burn to and why?

    You really should read these in order or much of this book will not make sense.
    Rush
    Fever
    Burn


    What three words best describe Adam Paul’s voice?

    Strong, solid, steady.

    I am always impressed with male narrators who can portray female characters without making them sound like effeminate men-he does a good job.


    Any additional comments?

    NOTE: Strong language and explicit sex

    "ANOTHER GREAT READ FROM MAYA"
    Any additional comments?

    Like I've said many times, in my opinion, nobody writes a romance novel like Maya!! Adam Paul does a wonderful job with the narration and has a very sexy voice. My only problem is....SHE CAN'T WRITE THEM FAST ENOUGH FOR ME!!

    "Yup it was book 3!"

    As for the entire trilogy I have to give it overall a 4.0. Not a lot of surprises, the world of these books is rich in detail, mostly plausible scenarios (except book 2), and for the most part imparts the age old knowledge that men really are thick headed...and us women have to keep forgiving them or the earth would no longer be populated.

    This book followed the same formula as books 1 and 2....man meets woman, man is oddly attracted to woman...on a primal level of course...man is obsessed with woman...woman is overtaken by mans desire and then man screws up and woman must forgive him...or once again we have the population issue!

    Sometimes I really don't like Maya Banks stuff...she is for sure off in her own world and writes to please herself, not her readers...but at least she gets the hot scenes HOT! This book is no exception...and to the person out there who gives a below three star rating because they feel it's pornography with barely a plot...I encourage you to READ THE REVIEWS BEFORE YOU BUY!!!! Maya writes hot...if you don't like reading graphic scenes of submission, Dominance, and pure hot sex...then don't get the book, and stay away from Shayla Black while you are at it too!

    The book is under $10, so just buy it.
