Burned is a great story that is very well written - the author grabs you, intriguing you with hints of wonder at the beginning of each chapter as the love story unfolds, keeping you interested until the very end.

The story is very good, weaved together very well. The author has a way with words that is very impressive. The structure of the story was great, with a great balance of conflict and romance.

I would recommend this book to my friends. It is a wonderful story and is so easy to read. A great book by a great author.

Fire Always burns creates a strong sense of setting in Conifer, Colorado, where Holly, Andrew, and Luke -- friends from high school -- all live. Holly came home from her first year of college with a deep, dark secret, one only Luke knows. The high school group agreed a long time ago never to date one another, but tensions run high when Andrew and Holly give in to passion.

When Luke learns of their relationship he's angry and hurt, and believes Holly's not ready after what happened in college. Andrew, meanwhile, has a mother who is a recluse long after his father's death, a scholarship about to expire, and a best friend he's finally taken the risk for -- and then Holly's past mistake is made public, leaving him devastated and wondering who she really is.

Krista Lakes did a tremendous job of portraying these characters and friendships, using a forest fire as yet another character. The fire plays a pivotal role in the book, leading to a wide range of reckonings for multiple characters. This is what I'd call a "New Adult" book, with YA themes that have stronger sexual and relationship tones to them (as it should be when in your early 20s!).

I would absolutely love to read a separate book about Luke (hint hint to the author). The setting is a very interesting world and the older generation (Luke's dad and Andrew's mom) have their own set of secrets that could be explored, too!

I am a huge fan of well written romance stories and Krista Lakes certainly delivers everything an avid romance reader like me would expect. Perfectly written scenes, dynamic (in depth) characters that are not only interesting but realistic, a good steady pace to the story that doesn't go too fast or drag on too slow - I loved everything about this steamy romance, including the heartbreaking back story and of course, the main character Holly, a girl who only ever wanted to be loved and if everything falls into place, it just might happen for her.

This is a breathtaking, truly original romance that I highly recommend to both new adult romance fans AND mainstream romance fans. Absolutely beautiful story!

This was a good story. A young woman goes off to college and completely loses her mind. Drink, sex, etc. Used by jerks. When she realizes what she has been doing, plus a possible pregnancy, she leaves for home.

The love of her life is still there, trapped by an ailing mother who cannot be left alone. It seems rather desperate at this point but things quickly look better. In life, it is so strange that people do things never thinking of how they are going to explain it all in the future or that they will even want to. But this was a good example of be careful how you live your life because you may have to explain it to someone you really love and want.

Good story. I enjoyed it. Lots of secrets around the main character's lives and how they explained them. HEA for everyone. There was a fire and it was compared to life and how it all turns out coming out of the ashes.

I would recommend the book. Lot of serious parts, so not a laugh out loud story but still a good story.

This was a unique story and well written and the burn happens slowly. A young woman goes off to college and completely loses her mind. Drink, sex, etc. When she realises what she has been doing, plus a possible pregnancy scare, she leaves & heads home.
The love of her life is still there, trapped by an ailing mother who cannot be left alone. It seems rather desperate at points but there is a silver lining. There was a fire and it was compared to life and how it all turns out coming out of the ashes.
I would totally recommend the book. Quite intense, and hardly light, so not a laugh out loud story but still a good story.

I liked this book well enough...I just didn't like it enough to give it more stars. The relationship between the two main characters was interesting and complex. I guess one of the things I didn't like was the intro to each chapter -- how many descriptions of a fire can you make up -- and it took FOREVER to figure out why she was even writing about fire.

This is a book I'd recommend...if you got it for free.

Wow! I really enjoyed this book. The descriptions are evocative and the characters are realistic. The story draws you in and keeps you reading because you just have to know what happens! There is just the right amount of tension and drama that keeps building to a "fiery" climax. I recommend!

I'm not really sure how to review this book, and I actually almost decided not to - but since I've been making it my "policy" lately to review everything I read (including reviewing books that my kids read, written in their own words on Amazon), I decided to give this a shot.

Let me begin with the low points; I was surprised to see that this book had been re-edited even prior to my reading it, because I really felt that it needs more polish before it can truly be called a professional product - although the cover is really very beautiful! There were several glaring errors in the text, places where I felt that characters were horribly unrealistic and/or nauseatingly immature, places where I felt that the story was rushed. These things left me more than a little frustrated - however, it could be argued that "new adult" isn't really my genre, and these are complaints I tend to have with any "young adult" or "new adult" book.

Which leads me to say the following:

This story was completely heart-wrenching! The author did a great job expressing the heroine's inner thoughts and feelings, and I felt like I could relate to her issues even when I was annoyed with her. I wanted things to work out for her so badly! There were places in this story that dragged streams of tears from me, and there were several places where the prose was truly beautiful. I especially loved the way the chapter introductions somehow seemed to perfectly match the deeper themes of the story while still standing apart enough to tell a story of their own.

I can't help it - I truly love this story, and I'm thrilled to have read it through (I almost didn't). I'll be watching for more from this author, and I've already added "Champagne Kisses" to my TBR.
