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.

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.<br/>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.

Ugh. Narrator Performance Sucks!!😒

I've read this book twice and like the series so far but the narrator for this book did not do the heroine just. She made her sound all whinny where she supposedly has a nonchalant attitude about herself. This narrator has really ruin the story for me. I don't think I will order the next books of the series if she will be narrating them.

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.

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

Great paranormal romance :D

5 stars

This was a great story! I loved it and was very happy with Harper and Knox as the MCs.

Harper is a demon and the co-owner of a tattoo parlor. Her mother abandoned her at birth and her father was a drifter who only took care of her because he was forced to. Because of this, Harper isn't big on relying on anyone and it's hard to get her to trust. This has also led her to only get involved with humans, thinking that humans are easily dismissed and not likely to risk her heart like a relationship with a demon might.

Knox is a demon that has risen to the heights of Prime (which is a leader over a group of demons). He was subjected to some bad stuff when he was growing up but he rose above it, drawing people to him with his strength until he found himself in a leadership position over an ever growing group of demons. Knox isn't known for passion and seems to care about very little...his bed mates never keep his interest for long.

The story beings with Harper and some of her friends at an underground demon playground. The underground has bars, restaurants, gambling establishments, fighting rings and many other things for the demon population to have fun with. Harper is watching the fighting but one of her friends has an issue that keeps her from fighting her scheduled fight so Harper ends up taking her place. What Harper doesn't know is that when she takes the fighting stage, she gets the attention of someone much more powerful than she would expect. Knox finds very little interesting nowadays but the minute he sees Harper, both him and his demon perk up and take interest. Their first meeting isn't long but it's long enough for them to realize that they're each other's anchors. A demon's anchor is another demon that is psychically tied to them. The bond doesn't get cemented unless both demons agree but since it not only helps them be more powerful but also helps them control their inner demon, most demons want the bond. Due to her past and not feeling like she could rely on anyone to stick around, Harper isn't very interested in forming the bond with Knox and makes that clear.

Knox normally isn't someone that's possessive but Harper being his anchor really brings out his possessiveness. The relationship between anchors isn't usually a sexual one but the sexual attraction between Harper and Knox is strong and hard to ignore. Harper is determined to ignore it...not that that lasts very long. Knox doesn't care what the "norm" is, he just knows he wants Harper and what he wants he gets. He does warn her that his demon tends to get bored easily so she's prepared for the sexual part of their relationship not to last. Thankfully, his predictions don't come true in her case and the more they're together, the closer they become and the less they wish to be separated. While they're trying to work on their bond/relationship, there are many things going on to keep things interesting. An old "friend" of Knox's wants to gain power over all the demons and is making waves in her attempt to gain that power. There's also danger aimed at Harper and there are multiple suspects to chose from. Things certainly stay busy and the whole story came together really well. Things do work out so that Harper and Knox end the story with a HEA.

I really enjoyed this story a lot! I loved Harper as a heroine...she was spunky, smart and kickass and I couldn't help but like her. Knox was cool...a bit bossy but he didn't feel the need to be a jerk and try to run all over Harper and mostly just pushed things in the bedroom (which Harper liked). This did end with a HEA (and wasn't cliffy at all) but Wright has continued stories that seemed to have ended (like the "Deep In Your Veins" series) before so I'm hoping (fingers crossed!) that this will be continued as well. This was a great story with wonderful characters. I'd highly recommend this story. 2 thumbs up! :D

* note - The narrator was alright but I didn't think her voice really suited Harper. It didn't ruin the audiobook but I do wish they had used a different narrator.

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.
