Blurb

I've broken him, bent him, and burned him, and each fevered moment was worth every ounce of pain.  
Auburn Lawrence has loved her English teacher, Reed West, since she was fourteen. Through brainstorming stories, reading classic literature, and plenty of fiery banter, they've forged a bond that neither of them expected. Propelled by a chance encounter after her graduation, they discover just how deep their connection runs, but love requires more than chemistry to flourish. They spend three electrifying summer months discovering each other under a veil of forbidden passion and desperate lust before they learn that the unattainable is often destined to remain exactly that. By the time temperatures dip and snowflakes fly, their relationship will face a deep freeze that threatens to snap the bond they thought they shared, shattering their lives one secret at a time. 
  Intended for mature audiences.

Beautiful Burn by Adriane Leigh
My rating: 3 of 5 stars

3 Emotionally Confused Stars

Was given an ARC in exchange for an honest review

First off this is the first time reading Adriane Leigh's books, while the story was good and sexy. I did get to points of the book where for me it was a lot of back and forth and just didn't grab me like I wanted.

When I read the blurb for this book I was really excited by the way it sounded and having a HEA. While there is a kind of HEA its not your traditional type (and be warned you will need tissues at some point in the book)

When I finally was enjoying it and thinking all was good a massive turn in the story happens that I just wasn't expecting (which is always good) but then to think all is ok and then something else happens and then BAM the end!

I was left feeling a little angry, confused and crying to the point of not being able to see the page....

Unfortunately it just wasn't for me, not to say I won't ever read future work from Adriane, to me I felt I was a little miss lead by the synopsis of this book, but that's just my opinion. I just felt like I was looking forward to reading one thing and was left a little confused after.

TOP Ten Things I’ve Learned Since I Started Writing
  1. Believe in your story.
  2. Write every day, no matter how long, no matter how bad the words.
  3. Hire an editor.
  4. Hire a professional cover designer.
  5. Emotion is what connects the writer and the reader.
  6. Too much sex can be a bad thing! In books, in books ;)
  7. Accomplishment happens one step at a time.
  8. Step away from the story for a while.
  9. Avoid cliches, adverbs, repetition, and excessive inner monologue.
  10. Drinking helps.
