About BURN FOR YOU (Slow Burn #1)

Available October 17th

The marriage is fake. But for a sassy chef and an arrogant billionaire, the sparks are real… Jackson “The Beast” Boudreaux is rich, gorgeous, and unbelievably rude to the staff at Chef Bianca Hardwick’s New Orleans restaurant. Bianca would sooner douse herself in hot sauce than cook for Jackson again, but when he asks her to cater his fund-raiser, Bianca can’t refuse, knowing the cash will help pay her mother’s medical bills. Then Jackson makes another outrageous request: Marry me. The unconventional offer includes an enormous sum—money Bianca desperately needs, even if it does come with a contract—and a stunning ring.

The heir to a family bourbon dynasty, Jackson knows the rumors swirling around him. The truth is even darker. Still, he needs a wife to secure his inheritance, and free-spirited, sassy Bianca would play the part beautifully. Soon, though, their simple business deal evolves into an emotional intimacy he’s built walls to avoid.

As the passion heats up between them, Bianca and Jackson struggle to define which feelings are real and which are for show. Is falling for your fake fiancé the best happy ending…or a recipe for disaster?

Burn for You is the first book in the Slow Burn series. I read J.T’s Wicked Games series and loved it so a I was excited that she was starting a new one. The synopsis is kickass so I will try to make this short and sweet.
He needs a wife. She needs to pay for her mama’s medical bills. It’s only a contract. It can’t be more than that. He isn’t looking for love and she doesn’t have time for it. It’s just a piece of paper exchanged for money. That’s it. Well…until feelings develop and walls fall apart. Let the slow burn begin.
Jackson knew she was different from the moment they met. She didn’t take his shit. She didn’t want his money. She didn’t want anything from him. Nothing. It was him that was offering. It has never been that way. She intrigued him so when his inheritance is in jeopardy and his really only option was to marry someone by his thirty fifth birthday, she was the only one he wanted to be his wife. He just had to get her to say yes within one month. He could go in slow but once you meet him, you know that’s not him. He is blunt, snarly, and doesn’t care what other people think. He can’t even trust that. Most people fear him because of who he is. That is until her. Bianca Hardwick. The sassy, badass chef that isn’t afraid to say what’s on her mind. He has met his match.
Bianca should walk away like she did the first night she met him but she couldn’t. Not only because of what he could give her but because she just knew there was more to him. He was a puzzle that she wanted to solve. But she wouldn’t chase him. Nope. He would have to go to her. He walks around like he is in control but can not and will not let him control her. And it turns out…that’s one of the very reasons why he wants her. She thought he knew what he wanted but she had no idea…
I loved this story! Both characters are fighters. And I don’t mean the fights between them even though that is both sexy as sin, fun, and frustrating. Sometimes all at once. I mean they are strong. They both have pasts to overcome. Him even more. I enjoyed watching his walls fall, and seeing all the sides of him as they do.
Overall…it’s a great start to a new series! It’s a sexy, fun, heartbreaking, and beautiful read. I loved their banter, their chemistry, and watching their feeling grow. I am very excited about the next book. If I remember correctly, a Rugby player will be there and I am a rugger’s wife.
P.S. Ok, that wasn’t short.
“Looks like that boy hasn’t eaten in a year!”
I sourly harrumphed. “Only the souls of all who’ve displeased him.”
“Oh please, Jackson, you’re so highfalutin, you think your shit tastes like sherbet.”
“Whatever conversation you’re having with yourself, I’d love to join in. It looks fascinating.”


Read an excerpt from BURN FOR YOU

This time it was me who froze in shock when our lips came together. It took him several long moments of gentle coercion with his tongue before I finally opened my mouth. When I did, it was on a soft groan that he stole when he inhaled.

He was so big, and warm, and hard everywhere, except for his mouth, which was like cotton candy. I melted into it. He slid his thumb under my ear, and I shivered. His fingers pressed into my scalp. When he sank his teeth gently into my lower lip, lightning flashed through me.

I fisted my hand into the scruff of his neck and pulled him closer.

Suck, slide, nip, repeat, feel your pulse in all the hidden places in your body. This kiss was cashmere. It was luxuriant. It was decadent, unhurried, sweetly delicious, like stretching out on warm sand and drinking a mai tai. His scent was in my nose: pine and musk and something earthy and fresh, the way the woods smell after it rains.

He made that masculine sound deep in his throat that I found weirdly thrilling and pressed his hand into the small of my back. It brought our lower bodies together and provided me with impressive evidence that Jackson Boudreaux was anything but nonsexual.

“Oh,” I breathed.

His laugh was soft and dark. “Yes, oh. Stop talking.”

I couldn’t catch my breath, but it didn’t matter because his lips were on mine again. Little puffs of air through my nose would have to sustain me.

His hand in the small of my back became the iron band of his arm around my waist. My nipples tightened. His heartbeat crashed against my chest. The kiss turned from slow and sweet to hard and hot, first melting me and then lighting me on fire.

He tangled his hand into my hair, pulled the clip loose that held it all in place, and let it fall to the floor. He made that sexy, manly noise again when my hair spilled into his fingers. I fought the urge to press my hips against his, then softly moaned in relief when he did it for me, one big paw cupped under my bottom. Yes, yes, yes, thrummed my heart, aching for more.

He broke away, breathing heavily. My eyes drifted open. He stared down at me with a look like he might devour me.

Good thing I was in the mood to be devoured.
