Fast Burn by Lori Foster

A mini review

I do love a good romance on occasion and this was such an easy read that it was perfect to fit in between some fantasies.

IMG_5339Synopsis –
For the woman who’s his perfect match, he’s willing to break the rules…
The moment Brand Berry meets beautiful, driven Sahara Silver, the connection between them is electric. It’s also something he can’t pursue. Sahara wants him, sure—to join Body Armor, where his MMA skills, size and cocky attitude make him perfect for her elite crew of bodyguards. For Sahara, the agency always comes first, and Brand needs more. Yet when she’s kidnapped by men searching for her missing brother, he doesn’t hesitate.
Somewhere along the way, flirting with Brand for the sake of business turned very personal. Despite his refusal to join Body Armor, it’s Brand who steps up when Sahara needs him most. Now there’s no more time for games, and no point denying the hunger they both feel. They’ll escape together or not at all. But if they survive, can Sahara finally surrender control to claim this blazing passion?

Fast Burn is book 4 in the Body Armor series, it’s the final book and it was easy to read and keep up even though I hadn’t read any of the previous books. We were given information from the last few books but it didn’t feel like info dumping. As each book is centered around a new relationship they can be read on their own. You get a good feel for the previous characters and how they all fit together.

Brand and Sahara have a whole heap of chemistry and I like that Sahara is a determined, savvy business woman. They both have to compromise as they find their way through the new terrain.
It is a typical romance in that it has the alpha male type who is super over protective and somewhat jealous and a woman who is kidnapped and rape is used as a threat against her. I did like that the author had Sahara point out how shit that is, that it’s never ok to violate a person that way, even if it was only ever a threat. But I’ll be honest I’m really sick of that trope. Can we come up with a new plot line.

At about the same time as I was reading this I watched a comedy special on Netflix, and the comedian said if a guy keeps telling you he’s an alpha male, he is definitely a beta male, which then made me laugh for the rest of the book. The term alpha male is used a lot.

All in all, it was a fun, well written read.

I received this book from the publisher via NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.
