Reeling from the sudden loss of her sister, Haddie Montgomery has sworn off relationships. All she wanted from Beckett Daniels was a sexy distraction to help her escape her pain for just a little while....There weren’t supposed to be any strings attached—so why can’t she shake the memory of that unforgettable night from her thoughts? Or the taste of his kiss from her lips?

No matter how hard Haddie tries to forget about him, Becks relentlessly tries to prove that she should start living for today. But she is determined to avoid romantic commitment, and she can always use her ex-boyfriend’s reappearance to help snuff out the slow burn within her that Becks has sparked....

Or will fate force her to realize that this kind of connection doesn’t come along very often and a chance at love is worth the risk?


The start of Slow Burn was promising but I felt as the story played out and developed it was the not for me.

Haddie is running from her future and scared of the unknown. She’s recently been through some very life altering situations and is afraid that her destiny will follow in the same path.

Even though I understood her reasons for running, it gets very tiring after a while. I loved Haddie’s commitment and the relationships she has with her niece, family, and friends. She is always putting everyone before herself.

A soft smile curls up the corner of her lips as her pinkie grips onto mine. “Haddie Maddie promise,” she whispers, her smile growing wider. “Hearts and heels.”

Becks is the good guy every girl wants to marry, but for some reason he has never had a very serious girlfriend. I don’t know who wouldn’t fall victim to Beckett and all his southern charm. He’s what every woman wants and has an incredible relationship with his family and friends.

I felt like I needed more of them as an actual couple instead of the cat and mouse game they play throughout the whole book. It wasn’t until the end of the book that there was finally a resolution and we got to see them as an actual couple. Which I loved but again I wanted more of that.

 “Time is precious. Waste it wisely.”

In the end, K. Bromberg is wonderful writer but her writing in this story was not for me. The back and forth was more than I could handle and I so desperately wanted to see more of them as a couple and happy. They were so good together when you finally got to see it.
