Wicked Burn by Beth Kery

He wanted all of her…

Vic Savian knows what he wants when he sees it. And what he wants is his sexy neighbor, Niall Chandler. When he finds her in the hallway of their building being harassed by an aggressive suitor, Vic steps in—and finds himself greatly rewarded…

And did she ever let him have it…


Sleeping with her gorgeous neighbor—when she didn’t even know his last name—was the craziest thing Niall’s ever done. Now, she can’t seem to get enough of Vic, or what he stirs in her. Suddenly she’s exploring uninhibited pleasures she’s never known before. But when her past returns to haunt her, she and Vic are forced to venture beyond the pleasures of the flesh, and risk it all on something deeper, something found only in the heart.

I ended up staying up WAY past my bedtime to finish "Wicked Burn" by Beth Kery. It was worth every yawn I suffered through today! I just intended to read a few chapters, but the author sucked me in with her wickedly hot love scenes and emotional story.

Niall has been existing, but not living, for the last several years. The violent death of her child changed her world in almost every way. It's taken all her strength to just get through each day...and the nightmares don't help. When she's saved by her sexy neighbor from an overly amorous date, the sparks fly and the next thing Niall knows they're burning up the sheets. But Niall is keeping some pretty harsh secrets, and as the sex becomes a relationship, she's terrified of what her lover might do when he finds out.

Vic is a successful writer. He doesn't have a problem getting women...temporarily and on his terms. He's noticed his sexy neighbor even though she's not his type, but on her, even her pearls turn him on. And when the attraction explodes into the hottest affair he's ever had, Vic slowly realizes this might be what he'd given up on finding. Of course, the one thing Vic can't stand is a liar or a cheat.

A whole bunch of the hottest monogamous sex you'll read interspersed with a poignant story that may bring a few tears. Sure, the hero and heroine jump into bed, but there's actually a plot advancing reason for it. And at times I was frustrated with the heroine, but I can't begin to imagine the horrors she's faced and the lack of support she received from her family. And there were times I didn't like Vic too much either, but again, 'screw me once, to hell with you...screw me twice, to hell with me!' could pretty much be his motto. I don't want to give too much away, but I think fans of emotional erotica will definitely enjoy this one.

Vic Savian is a man who recognizes what he wants when he sees it. When he finds his sexy neighbor Niall Chandler being harassed by an aggressive date, Vic knows exactly what he wants. He wants Niall in his arms and in his bed. Vic takes a chance and finds himself richly rewarded for his efforts.

Niall Chandler is not the impulsive type, so she surprises herself by sleeping with her gorgeous neighbor the first night they meet. She cannot believe that she had such a mind-blowing, passionate tryst with a man whose last name she doesn¿t even know. For three years, Niall has been going through life in a daze. Vic reawakens not only her passion, but also her very soul with his powerful, uninhibited, sensual touches. She experiences things with Vic that she has never felt before. Is there a future for two people whose explosive passion erupts each time they touch? Will Niall and Vic allow themselves to explore possibilities beyond the boundaries of the bedroom?

WICKED BURN is Beth Kery¿s first novel from Berkley Sensation. It is a passionate, soul-stirring novel about two people who have both been hurt in the past. Vic Savian and Niall Chandler each possess scars from past relationships, making it hard for either to trust easily. Vic is the epitome of an Alpha male; he is a take-charge, no-holds-barred, virile man who takes what he wants with passion. Niall has been through hell for the past few years, yet her strength continues to hold her together when everything around her seems to be falling apart. Both characters have such amazing depth and intriguing personalities that I fell in love with them immediately.

Beth Kery¿s writing is filled with so much emotion that it instantly pulls the reader into the heart of the story. She brings her characters to life with her descriptive prose and realistic dialogue. I experienced each passionate high and heart-wrenching low that Vic and Niall went through in their complex, sensual journey. I laughed with these people and cried with them. I held my breath as they came together in some of the sexiest love scenes I have read this year. One particular love scene involving a string of pearls is so erotic that I will never look at a pearl necklace the same way ever again. Pick up a copy of this unforgettable, sensually irresistible romance and find out why Ms. Kery is one of today¿s rising stars of romance.
