*** Review ***





Loved Beautiful Burn!

This is Reed and Auburn's story and it is told from Reed's POV.

Reed is an English teacher and Auburn was his student when she was in high school. Auburn, a 21 year old young woman, always had a crush on Reed and now is back home for the summer to take care of her grandmother and to take a Writers course.
Reed is surprised when he sees Auburn in the Writers course he is teaching. He is attracted to her, but knows that their relationship would be a scandal in their small town.
Will Auburn act on her crush? Will Reed take a chance with Auburn?

This is a very emotional story. It is a heart wrenching story, very raw, with lots of drama, angst and steamy scenes.

Beautiful Burn's characters are very strong and relatable and you cheer them and hope they have their happy ending.
Reed is a 28 year old teacher that is in a difficult situation: he is attracted to his former student, he is separated from his wife and his hidding a secret from everyone. He just wants to get his life in order and Auburn's appearence makes it difficult. He is afraid that people will judge him for being in a relationship with Aurburn.
Auburn is home for the summer to take care of her grandmother and take a Writers course. Since high school she had a crush on Reed because they connected through their love for writing.

This is an excellent book, with a brilliant story and great characters. Prepare your tissues because this story will make you cry, especially the epilogue.

This is the first book I read written by Adriane Leigh and I can't wait to read more!






The quote in the teaser reminds me of this poem written by Luís de Camões, a poet that is considered Portugal's and the Portuguese language's greatest poet (I found the translation online)

Love is a fire that burns unseen,
a wound that aches yet isn’t felt,
an always discontent contentment,
a pain that rages without hurting,

a longing for nothing but to long,
a loneliness in the midst of people,
a never feeling pleased when pleased,
a passion that gains when lost in thought.

It’s being enslaved of your own free will;
it’s counting your defeat a victory;
it’s staying loyal to your killer.

But if it’s so self-contradictory,
how can Love,
when Love chooses,
bring human hearts into sympathy?

*** Excerpt ***


Before I could react, he had pried my legs apart and was working along my inner right thigh, moving slowly upward. By now, my reservations were gone and I surrendered to him. And when his fingers reached the junction between my legs, I gasped when his hands slipped under my butt and gripped my cheeks, squeezing them in his hands. He could see every intimate part of me, I was sure of it. Letting go of my butt, his hands came around to my folds. At that moment, when his finger slipped between my legs, I clapped my hand over my mouth, suppressing my scream.

His fingers moved along my folds, tracking my wetness up and down. I was so wet at this point that my insides heaved with desire as he stroked me. I wanted to cry out, ask him what he was doing, but I didn't. I let him manipulate my folds, slowly, methodically bringing me to orgasm. My hips began rocking in time with his hands. God, those hands were making me feel things I never thought possible. I could feel my climax building, like a wave caught in the shallows it was gaining momentum, waiting to wash over me.

I was at his mercy now. I ached for release and was willing to do anything to achieve it. But when his finger inched back and forth over my vagina, teasing me with the promise of what was to come. I bit my lip, desperate for him to penetrate me. His fingers did not wait long to slip inside of me, and when I felt the pressure of him moving deeper, I arched my back and moaned. He was rubbing back and forth over that spot, the one so many men try to find but give up. Well, Mr. Hands knew exactly where my spot was, and as he slowly moved in and out of me, I knew I was going to come harder than I had ever come before.

*** Excerpt ***


He watched her slender artist's hand caress her taut, tattooed abdomen, instantly jealous that it wasn't his own blunt fingers that idly drifted across her silky flesh. Her eyes flickered with awareness to where he stood at the end of the bed watching her. It only made his balls draw up tight. His rock-hard erection jutted outward, thick and long. He couldn't halt his hand from massaging it with slow, steady jerks. His teeth burrowed painfully into his bottom lip. - Hell's Ink
