    Excellent!!

    This book had me hooked from the first page. The characters are well developed and story kept me involved. I thoroughly enjoyed this book. Crystal Hubbard has a hit with this one!.

    They Burn because They are Hot!

    I loved this , Cinder and Gian were a wonderful story . Cinder was a woman who learned to believe the strength she did not know she had. Gian helped her find that strength. They are a loving sexy couple.You will root for Cinder and Gian I found myself rooting out loud for this couple. The fight scenes make you feel like you are watching a actual movie. The love scenes are hot!!I am glad she wrote a companion book I cant wait to read it to learn more about Webster Groves.

    Good Read - Must check it out!!

    The 1st part of the book in the prologue to chapter one it was slow. But after that everything started to flow and could not put the book down. I loved Cinder and Gian their relationship blossom nicely. It is a must read!!

    Good read

    The beginning of the book started off very slow and it was kind of hard to follow, it just didn't have a nice flow, but I didn't give give up. Once the plot came together, I started enjoying the characters and the storyline. Cinder & Gian relationship was sweet and real, I like the down to earth interaction between the two of them. This was a good romantic/suspense read, but "Crush" is my favorite book by Ms. Hubbard.

    Just an okay read

    The book was well written, but boring and predictable. I would've like to see more twists, overall read just fell a bit flat.

    This book is near perfection. A rock solid 4.5, if not a bit hi

    This book is near perfection.

    A rock solid 4.5, if not a bit higher, which is why it rightfully earns a 5 star from me as the star system won’t account for my ambiguities in this matter.

    This is a true story of love, comfort and healing, written in an expert, elegant hand. I was "there" the whole time whereas the language is rich and vibrant, engaging the mind and all five senses to the point where you want to take your time with the story to relish in the words. The delicate detail given to setting and feeling really just pulls you into the experience and adds to the realism of it all.

    Like these people truly exist and you could fly out and actually come across them.

    It’s just got that credible depth to it.

    Burn is so romantic and really sweet, though I felt deceived by the cover. I’m not one for the body shot, “smutty” covers in the first place, as it carts these sort of books into the “cheap read” category for me, by this is by no means cheap. This book is quality and it knows it, so I wish the cover showed that off a little.

    I love when a romance pleasantly surprises me with how well done it is. And an interracial romance! I think I’m in love with this author. I’m reading another from her, Mr. Fix it, and it’s got me laughing and smiling and blushing so I’m amazed at the contrast it has from the posh airy breeze of Burn, that takes itself a bit more sternly, but enjoyable nonetheless.

    Speaking of burnnnnn, the sex and romance slipped easily into the action and thoroughly moved the plot along as well as the character growth, firmly supporting the characters' arcs and their progression as people. I craved Cinder and Gian’s every interaction and whenever they spoke to one another. Just loved their dialogue and chats.

    In general, the story has such a natural authenticity to it that makes you go "what? This has an author? It didn't just spruce into magical existence?

    Now for my criticisms. They’re relatively small, but quite pointed and did affect this story’s rating enough where it does hold that 4.5 in my book.

    For one, time progressions and placement of information. While it didn’t happen too often, there were moments when there was a pretty sizable time gap that left me hungry to know what has happened in between that space.

    My biggest time jump “irk” was between her arriving to take fighting classes and suddenly having been there for 2 months. I needed more.

    The in-between. How things progressed. That woulda fixed my other curiously, that being how she got so good and watching the progress unfold. It was just 2 months…and she’s one of the best pupils now. While I could easily believe it, I wanted to <i> see </i>
    it.

    Plus there were some questions and curiosities I had during the reading that were not meant to be mysteries and were just late-coming.

    By that I mean details that came late at times, causing confusion, such as the heroine’s name (meant to be cloaked as a mystery for a moment, I know) but also who Zae was, her position in Cinder’s life, if Cinder had met Gian’s parents and where are they(since they’re mentioned like close-by but the subject not risen much)…just questions I had about people that should’ve been told earlier. Details that you could just get out and should not leave us scratching our head about.

    Another thing I desired was a deeper introspective from Cinder. We get plenty of Gian but I wish the balance to Cinder was allowed to flourish and deepen sooner than later. That way, I’d have felt closer to her and not looked at her from Gian’s -male gaze- for the majority of the time. I don’t mind it in romance, but I do like to at least feel more into the heroine’s skin, being “with” her thorough enough that our connection is stronger. If the real push of the tale began with her, this probably would've been somewhat cured.

    Now on the subject of Gian; while he was a strong, interesting and passionate character, he did have some questionable actions that made me raise a brow. For one, he forced Cinder out of her comfort zone quite a bit, whether training her or in social situations. It was actually good for her, but I did feel self-conscious with Cinder at those times. I can’t really bag of him that much for these things, since he did help her find her inner and outer strength in his pushiness here.

    Some things I don’t excuse from him are when he tells the others (SLIGHT SPOILER) about Cinder’s past after the events that went down that day. Knowing she wanted her information private, I don’t see why he would do that, even if the people were trusted. She wouldn’t have appreciated it; I know that.

    Plus, a small detail, (another slight, slight spoiler) him using her dragon design without her permission. That's just unethical. How did he get his hands on that anyways?

    These things don’t by any means ruin the story or the character, but are things that twitched by brow while reading, though all the other goodness of the story softened it as I progressed.

    But all and all, this tale was great. It needed an epilogue though. A breath of the aftermath just to tie the tiny loose ends. It makes me as the reader fill in my own details for there's a need to finish the story for oneself with a bit of a bow.

    Another bit on the end; it was pretty high-tension and definitely climatic, but I wanted just a tinyyy bit more. A tiny bit.

    SPOILER:...

    With Cinder’s final fight, I wanted more of an Enough end [ya’ll seen that movie? J-Lo, abusive husband, she trains to prepare to beat his ass and kills him. This book reminded me so much of this and I loved it]. Yeah with Cinder, I really wanted her to kill him or just a bit more action. More of her fighting skills to the test. A broom broken over her knee! Yes. That would’ve been special.

    END SPOILER:

    As for the story's aftermath; yes you can infer the rest but still some final hoops to tie. For example, two of the main side characters who were secretly courting a little. That needed to deflate or manifest publicly. Even if he just held her hand in the end it woulda been enough indication. But I hear there’s another book following those two so it wasn’t totally left off!

    All and all, definitely a well-crafted, strong and beautifully written book. Recommended to those who love a good romance and lovely language.

    This book just didn't seem very realistic and it reminded me alo

    This book just didn't seem very realistic and it reminded me alot of JLO's move Enough where she learns to fight back against an abusive husband. I also didn't find the male hero to be very alpha more like a pushover especially with his employees.
