This is not my easiest review to write and it is very difficult to lay out all the problems I encountered without re reading the book. What I can say off the top of my head is that Burns so Bad starts off very promising. Anne Marsh builds the scene and paints the players very well. She knows enough facts about smoke jumping to make for great visualisation and believability. The dance scene at Ma's Bar is great and puts the reader in a front row seat. I loved how it was written. The dialogue is strong, believable, and witty. Alway a plus.

Sadly when we reach the 20% mark things begin coming apart. The spelling, tense lapses, and repetition begin causing enough distraction to impact reading pleasure. By the 50 % mark the story is not just bordering on overly repetitive but it becomes contradictory and continuity suffers. One moment X person has A viewpoint, and then suddenly it switches 180 degrees. Things really start to get confusing when the drug runners enter the picture. The scenes are no longer clearly delineated and some parts are skimmed over while others are overly described.

All in all this reads as a very good first draft of what could be a really great book. I would suggest that the author take another look at it and then do some reworking and have a couple of proof-readers take a look at it. I ready hope she does because this really could be a very enjoyable read.

This could have been a fairly good book, as there was some interesting new angles (for me with the fire thing), but ridiculously poor consistency WITHIN a scene as well as throughout the book made this impossible to finish for me. The author didn't seem to remember which character was where, doing what, and at times, even what they'd done yesterday. Some elements were a big part of the progression of the plot, and when the basic facts of the timeline kept changing, I lost it. It sucked. Add to that some sloppy writing here and there - please. Leave this one, until a proper update (rewrite) has been done. Then, and only then, this book might be edible..

This is a well written story and I enjoyed it but the editing is soo very poor. Why would a good writer let her work out to the public with such bad editing. Someone is not doing their job. The errors are bad enough to be distracting

After thoroughly enjoying Jack and Evan's stories, I was anxious to get to Rio's. The drama and chemistry were great. Unfortunately something seems to have happened with the editing in this book as it appears no one proof read it.

I think I'd give this 2.5 Stars. I really liked the story, but I kept getting lost. The perspectives alternated so often I got whiplash. There were many things I didn't understand, also. The backstory was rushed and didn't make much sense for either of them, and none of the secondary characters had any substance. It was like the author would add in characters for variety and then forget she had added them. It says this is book one, but by the rushed pseudo-explanations, I really hope I missed the books that came before.
Basically, it's a lovely start to what could be a fabulous story. It just needs significant editing.

I really wanted to like this book more. The beginning was okay and writing was pretty good, but it was the story line and discrepancies that in the end annoyed me too much and took me out if the story. It read like a few scenes were added in the middle but later scenes were not updated to include what happened in them (thus huge discrepancies) and then maybe vice versa - scenes were removed but there are conversations that still seem to reference them. It actually made me think maybe I had imagined a few scenes, but no, I went back and they are there. It also seemed a bit choppy and rushed in parts.

I found myself not as interested as I thought I would be. I kept skipping parts which usually indicates that this is going to be a non keeper.
I had a problem with the heroine. Sure she was a strong female, and I know that some people like their heroines to be strong. However, there is a difference between being strong and independent and being just plain stupid.
*spoiler*
The heroine has a heart defect and when she has a problem and the hero is worried about her she tries to play it off like she just ran too hard. That's a lie and I can't abide by lies in stories real or fictional. It could've been something serious that if she didn't tell him she could've died.....just plain stupid.
I'm sure others like this e-book or will like it, but in my opinion I would advise not buying it.

My Rating: 4.5 of 5 ⭐️

Smoke jumper on the Donovan Brother's jump Team, Rio Donovan has a reputation of a love them and leave them kinda guy. His two brothers already solidly committed in loving relationships, Rio couldn't see himself going down that risky path. Normally one to face any challenge, give him a raging forest fire and he would be front of the line to jump out of the plane, anything long term when it comes to relationships seemed too much of a hassle. That is, until his new jump partner showed up earlier in the summer.

Her second summer jumping, but first time with the Jordan Brother's team, Gia Jackson put her heart and soul in her work. She was determined not to let the fact she was female distract from the fact that she could perform as well as any other guy out there and despite her family's concerns about her health, she was managing just fine. If only she could stop herself from being too distracted by her boss and jump partner. But when she ends up with Rio in her arms on one jump that almost goes horribly wrong, all bets are off.

Celebrating the successful conclusion of what could have been a disastrous call, Gia and Rio find themselves high on life and a bit of alcohol, kissing outside Gia's door. One taste turns out to be not enough for either, and despite concerns around mixing professional and personal involvement, keeping their hands off each other turns out to be impossible.

When during a jump, Rio and Gia are first down, trying to get out of the way of the fire, they bump into some illegal activities on the mountain, they are now not only chased by the fire, but by criminals as well.
