From best friends in Hollywood, to southern belles in danger, to a little fun at dinner, and a final twist to some vampire fun, Slow Burn is a culmination of four short, sexy stories. Hollywood-land is harsh, the southern belle is repressed, the waiter is hot, and the vampires are delectable and tough, making the book a study in contrasts.

In the way groupings have, a few of the stories of Slow Burn outshined the others. The first story, Old Friends was a treat when old friends reunite and sparks fly for a happy-for-now ending. The middle drags with two nice, predictable shorts one filled with sex, the other with good old fashioned southern-style drama. The ending story, a longer paranormal short, Anything, was a great ending. It drew me in and I’ll be looking for the sexy cousins’ stories in the future. I give the total stories three and a half diamonds. The first and last would get more on their own, but the two middle stories brought it out of the four diamond running. It definitely warrants a read from those looking for quick, steamy stories.
