Review:

Wow!!!! I must say this romantic thriller, was filled with twists and turns at every corner. I was intrigued from beginning to end with this read, and at one stage I felt like a crazed reader, flickering through 100 miles per hour just to find out whom, what, where and why!!! A suspenseful thriller- romance that will leave you bewildered, guessing and wandering who the killer was, and why. An unpredictable plot by any means, suspense that will leave you gasping, unexpected events that will bring tears to your eyes; make you fume at events that take place, and also making the plot both intriguing and memorable. Chapters flowed smoothly, the plot was fast paced, and kept the reader interested throughout from beginning to end. I felt not a thing was missed or rushed... Slow burn was filled with luscious sensual love scenes, that not only with have your toes curling, eyelashes fluttering, but your heart racing like a bird in flight. Moments where you will find yourself grinning with amusement at the funny antics between the characters, and moments where your heart is being played like a marionette and scenes where you want to just jump into the book. The main characters were well developed, Ron - was charming and flirtatious, a successul business man, rich, cocky, and hot to trot, yet also has his own vunerabilites, this showed the reader he was not that perfect hot firefighter- playboy and that he also had issues he had to deal with. Loving and caring and sexy an idealistic hero for all. A tortured soul to a certain extent. Ashley was hot headed in what she believed in and independent, caring and considerate, but also I enjoyed her straight forward character, she liked the truth and believed to give it at all costs. She was passionate about her work and the ones she loved, determined to do what it took to keep the ones she loved out of danger. Not a character I would consider stuck up or snotty but down to earth and very realistic. The blazing attraction between Ron and Ashley was mesmerizing, tantalizing and passionate. Sex scenes were sensual and loving, electrifying- if you make call it, yet at times also dreamy and transient. Their love was portrayed, tastefully and emotionally giving a good insight to their feelings. Both the good and the bad moments. The descriptions in this story were Fluent, expressive and rhythmic well above defined, there is nothing quite like reading a book and being able to envisage scenery, scents and smells. I am one for great descriptions and this book does not disappoint. Secondary characters all blended in well, nothing missed out and even the villains were portrayed as noxious, and demented. Definitely incalculable. Making you dislike the character. Ednah defined this well. The other characters, loyal and faithful, and heartfelt. I enjoyed all the characters in Slow Burn, each and every one unique and necessary for the plot to unwind. Overall, I must say, I had Goosebumps by the end, Held my breath and hoped for the best .... I am a dramatic reader, but you know when you have read a good book when it pulls at your emotions and when the end is done ... you sigh! And breathe... I'm sure I held my breath last few chapters. A capricious read !!!! I'm sure you will enjoy. --K. M. Whittaker;Page Flipperz - Blog; (cairns, qld, AU)

Ashley Fitzgerald was in a deadly fire at the Carlyle House 10 years ago. Since then, she has tried to put the past behind her. Now a successful photographer and artist, she almost thought she had. When the handsome man first came to the door, she thought he was her model, and asked him to strip. He finally managed to explain himself before he had all of his clothes off, but she still wanted to paint him for her erotic series. He had new clues about the fire; he had letters that eluded the dead firefighter had had nothing to do with the arson, and there were photographs from the day of the fire--pictures that she had taken. Once over the shock, she was just as committed as he was. A wealthy businessman, Ronald Noble has achieved what he wanted. The jet, clothes, and the women meant little. What he really wanted was justice for his father; he knew in his heart that his father had been a good man. Now he had the means to support his efforts to prove it. He hoped the letters and the photographs would help get the case reopened. He knows there is much more going on than what he's seeing. Agreeing to help Ashley in her quest to remember the real events of the fire is only the first step in his quest. He knows once she finds out who he really is, she won't help him any longer. Every time she and Ron uncover another name to interview about the fire, that person vanishes. With people either dying or disappearing right and left, Ashley finally decides she wants help remembering, and contacts her therapist. With a cold-blooded villain on the loose, she knows they need the answers sooner rather than later. Not only a first class romantic suspense/thriller, this is a great romance; the two are meshed almost seamlessly. Ms. Walters does an excellent job of keeping you on the edge of your seat, wondering if the villain's next strike will come too close to home. The romance builds realistically and the chemistry is worthy of a fire itself. Get caught up in the flames and let yourself get singed (in a positively good way!). I read this in one sitting...just had to finish it. Very highly recommended! --Karyn-Anne Brown;Mad for Romance; (Angleton, TX USA)

Slow Burn was such a HOT read. E.B. really knows how to tell a riveting story. This story has it all a HOT guy, Hot girl, an undeniable attraction, murder, suspense, intrigue, a sociopath, and a buried family secret. I have never been disappointed by ANY of ms. Walters books. Her stories weave a magical spell that just hold you transfixed. Ashley is an artist with no memory of what happened the night her parents died and Ron is a son desperate to find out what happened the night Ashley's parents died in the hopes of clearing his father's name. When they met, there was an instant connection between them that, no matter how they tried, they just couldn't deny. While they are forming this new relationship, all these mysteries things start happening to them. One by one things began happening to the remaining witness' of the fire that killed Ashley's parents. This story had me hanging on the edge of my seat wondering what was going to happen next. On a scale from 1-10 I give Slow Burn a 10. Slow Burn really makes you believe in love at first sight. I think everyone age 18 and over should pick up a copy of Slow Burn and let yourself get swept away by Ashley and Ron's story. While your buying Slow Burn you should also pick up book 2 Mine Until Dawn. In my opinion you can't go wrong reading an E.B. Walters book. --Raquel Vega-Grieder;Raquel Vega-Grieder; (Somerville,Massachusetts)
