Burned by Passion

Burned by Passion 
 3 of 5 stars false1/2
 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…


****I was given a copy of this book for my honest review****
Burned by Passion was an up and down read for me. When I first started it the story did grab my attention but it didn't hold it as well as I hoped and things started falling apart. My biggest problem was the heroine, Kira Taylor, secretary to Blake Carter's estranged father and all around lacking a back bone. Weak heroines are a pet peeve of mine and Kira hit every mark. The overly dramatized combative nature of her character made me want to reach through the book and smack some sense into her. Blake Carter however was a very interesting character for me, he was opposite of Kira's problems. He stood up for what he believed in, went after what he wanted, supported the heroine even when she was acting flaky, and was just all around a strong main character. The background story of him coming back to the states and working on his relationship with his estranged father became a little busy at times, but it helped keep the book at a fast pace and held interest. I will say the sex was hot and well done, even if the post sex was part of my issue with the heroine, the romance a little forced but not far off the mark for a romance.
