The Slow Burn by Kristen Ashley

3 Stars

Let’s get real honest. There’s only one reason I read Kristen Ashley . . . .

If you don’t like alpha men and caveman style dialogue featuring few words and a lot of growling she’s not going to be for you. Ashley is an author who most definitely a believer of the “if it ain’t broke, don’t fix it” mindset following a formula featuring the same sort of language, fella, instalove, and much of the sexytimes in each of her books. This time around the leading male was Tobias (the brother of Johnny from book #1 The Hookup). The leading lady was Addie (who just so happened to be the sister of Izzy from that same book). She’s a single mother struggling to make ends meet and his attraction to her is somehow verboten because stupid trope rules and all. Rest your pretty heads, though, because despite the title indicating this to be a “slow burn” these two end up banging by the quarter mark. Basically it’s a matter if you like the damsel in distress being rescued by a knight on a white horse. That’s not my fave, but bottom line is it still gets the job done if you know what I mean . . . .

Way to keep it classy, huh? Good thing I didn’t post this on a major religious holiday or anything . . . wait, whoops ; )
