Afterburn and Aftershock - Sylvia Day

Jackson (Jax) and Gianna (Gia) dated each other a few years ago. Gia fell in love and Jax left. Without a word. Fast forward 2 years. Gia is well on her way to becoming a successful business woman. Jax is still Jax. Jax happens to be a Rutledge; a family famous for their business and political clout. This is why he broke it off with her; he had Reasons. 
I was surprised I liked this as much as I did. While I didn't like Jax (surprise there) at the beginning, he grew on me and I liked him by the end of the book. Gia was awesome and I liked her. She didn't make it easy for Jax and I liked that. Gia's mentor, Lei was also likable and I could relate to her. 
The Rossi's, Gianna's family, were fucking awesome! Her brothers love her and are supportive of her without being overprotective. The Rutledges are the complete opposite of the Rossi family.
I did think Jax's "Reasons" were lame; that is what COMMUNICATION is for.

Afterburn - E. Davies Afterburn - E. Davies An ARC was provided to me in exchange for an honest review.

A really great start to a new series. Liam Knight is a firefighter that is having some issues and it shows in his work. When he misses work, the fire chief pulls him aside and suggests he seek professional help.

Dylan is part-time student, part time art therapy and part-time receptionist. He meets Liam in the craft store he works at, where Liam is a tenant of. The two feel an instant attraction for each other. Both parties have been hurt before and aren't quite ready to start anything. Even if they are they might not survive their issues.

I liked that there was room for growth for both MCs. The story was character driven and I liked the buildup of their relationship and that it was well paced. The focus on psychological problems and dealing with them was nice to see. It's not something you get to see a lot of in fiction and could have been easily brushed over.

Afterburn and Aftershock - Sylvia Day

I really loved this book. It was a quick read & I really hope we get more not only from the main characters but also the secondary characters. the hero Jackson was super sexy & very alpha male but also wicked sweet when it came to Gianna (Gia). Gianna is a strong, stubborn Italian woman who doesn't take crap from anyone. She makes Jackson work for her after what Happened to them in the past.
Jackson comes from a very prominent political family (think Kennedy's) & he doesn't hold his father in the highest regards. While Gianna comes from a very, very close, outspoken Italian family who owns their own Italian restaurant. Gianna also has 3 very protective brothers. Speaking of her brothers, I'd love to see a book on them. Especially where there were very prominent in this book. I also wish we got to see deeper into Jackson's family & all the dark secrets they seem to have. Like I said this was a really quick book to read & only took me a few hours to read. I really hope to see more of the characters here!

Kindle Countdown Deal: Afterburn by Tim Curran only $0.99
Afterburn - Tim Curran

Be quiet. Very quiet.
Don't scream.
They can't see you, but they can hear you.
And they're coming.
Knocking at doors and reaching through windows, hungry to incinerate anything that moves, anything that breathes. Born in a searing hellstorm of radioactive dust, they own the night and if they touch you, they'll burn the flesh from your bones.
They're coming now.
Don't even whisper.
And don't scream.

Review of Afterburn by Sylvia Day
Afterburn - Sylvia Day

I was a little disappointed with this short story series. I guess I should have read this before the Crossfire Series because CS was much better and was written after Aftershock and Afterburn.


I did listen to this one on audiobook which might have been the reason for the lower score. I didn't like the narrator or how she was portraying the female character. There were opportunities where this story could have really developed and been interesting and I was disappointed that there wasn't more substance.


I'm a reader who likes to read a great captivating story that needs to be told even around the steamy sex scenes.
