Seventeen years old when he
broke my heart.
Seventeen days later when another
picked up the pieces.
Seventeen years together.
Seventeen thousand problems.
Seventeen days of reliving my past and finding a new future.
Seventeen minutes until it all went
up in flames.
Seventeen breaths until I took my last.
This is my story...and it's going to burn.
Burned, by Tara Sivec, is phenomenal. I read the entire book in one day and was frustrated when it was over. I wanted more. The book is told in alternating points of view~ each chapter or two the perspective changes, as did my emotions. I was on a roller coaster right along with Finnley.
Finnley has been with the same man for 17 years. She has supported, loved, and given her life for Jordan and she is done. He's a liar, a cheat, and an addict who has sucked the life out of her. It was time to move on and even though she'd given so much to him, in the end she had nothing left to give.
Lucky for Finnley, she still has her best friend and family for support and as luck would have it, her first love has sauntered back into her life. Collin rejected her in high school and she thought all she felt for him was long over and done. Surprise! The sparks between them are still flying 17 years later. And the sexual chemistry between them is hot. I had to fan myself a few times! The great thing about Finnley and Collin is that they got to know each other again. Little by little, day by day, they took the time.
Turns out time was not on their side and they have to meet challenges neither of them expected. I won't give those challenges away, because those are the times in the book I was on the edge of my seat and are too good to share. You must read this book and fall in love with the strong female protagonist and Collin, the smokin' hot fireman.
