BURN (L.A. Untamed Book 2) by Ruth Clampett

"Where there's smoke, there's fire...

And I would know.
As the only woman in a squad of firefighters,
They call me T-Rex.
I’m fierce, fearless and I get the job done.

I've got a past that hurt me, nearly destroyed me.
Who doesn't?
But I'm no damsel in distress...
I fight my own battles, my own wars and my own fires.

Now I’m sizzling for my lieutenant, Joe Murphy, and that’s one fire I don’t want to put out.
But it’s a complicated situation. A hot and wild situation.
When things spiral out of control should I fight for the new life I was trying to build . . . or just let it burn?


Review by Wennie Conedy
5/5 stars

I was in a slump.

Real life finally caught up with me and with all the stressors, reading took a back seat -- of a bus -- a double decker in fact. Somehow, I lost the joy that came with reading, with discovering, with connecting with characters and losing myself in their world.

Well, when the opportunity came to review Ruth Clampett's new book. BURN, I jumped at the chance, hoping that the sequel to WET would re-re-ignite that fire for reading and books.

If I thought BURN would start a slow, smoldering fire, I was wrong. Oh so wrong. Clampett doesn't fool around. You know you are in for a wild ride when the opening scene finds the heroine sitting in her bedroom, cutting the crotch out of all of her husband's pants.

BURN is more than a love story. It's a story of survival and acceptance. It's a story of how a strong, young woman, risks her life side by side with other firefighters and yet has to fight to gain acceptance by her own team. It's a story of how a woman's realization that she married the wrong man led her to find the right one.

BURN scorches. BURN ignites. BURN leaves an indelible mark. Go get your copy now.
