Publisher's Summary

Even good girls make mistakes.
Kira Taylor was shocked to meet her boss's handsome, long-absent son and find him even more lethal in the flesh. He'd always been just a face in a photo - and nothing had prepared her for the way they clashed and burned when they finally met.
Blake Carter returned to America for a reunion with a father he hadn't seen since he was ten. But Blake had never bargained for falling for his father's sexy secretary, the beautiful and impressionable Kira Taylor…
Blake caught one glimpse of the gorgeous beauty from across the crowded room and felt the primal taste of desire like he'd never known. The sparks were more antagonism than attraction on her part as they collided over differences about the way he treated his father. But Blake had very strong persuasive skills when it came to bringing the vulnerable Kira to bend to his carnal passions…

Not a Dez Burke best

I really like Dez Burke books, because they are short and packed full of romance and great smex. This one is like double the length of her usual work and I think that is where this book went wrong. For the first 3 hrs I was really enjoying the story..but then the story just seem to drag on... Smex wasn't even that good.

Its a good sale. I'd save a credit for something more satisfying.

Narration was AWESOME. Laramie is 100% the best narrator for Burke's books... but the book this time was just too long...!!

A one time read (well listen actually)

What disappointed you about Burned by Passion?

The story. Kira mainly, her character was the weakest person I've ever heard of.

What could Dez Burke have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

Give Kira a backbone or something to make her a bit more believable. She storms after Blake to admonish him and she can't even carry that job out correctly. She tries to slap him, he stops her, she cries. Seriously. She gets beaten and she blames Blake and even justifies why it was done. Seriously.

Any additional comments?

My two biggest issue are Kira and the use of certain words with certain characters. I realize that in moments of complete abandonment people lose all senses and take on a persona uncharacteristic of who they really are. But, seriously. If Blake is as refined as he is, then I'm sure he can express his lust without the vulgar, dirty (and not in a good way) language. I would imagine that someone as well-manicured as Blake would be articulate enough to express his sexual desires and frustrations with Kira.

Kira, well she should have been better developed.
