2.5 Stars!!



Um...the synopsis???



Tells me nothing.

Unfortunately, I wasn't too impressed with the outcome.

Possible Spoilers Ahead...since the synopsis was so vague.

So Finnley got dumped by her high school boyfriend of two years. Jordan picks up the pieces of her broken heart and they spend the next five years dating and then the following twelve years married.

Jordan...



He can't hold down a job, he's an addict and Finnley isn't going to put up with it any more.



A month in to her separation from J

I may read some more too..that's just how I roll.


This book was actually really good. Not too much angst, main characters that were not dumbasses...Just pure win.

Collin and Finnley had been high school sweethearts. He listens to one of his friends who wants him to be a player with him and breaks up with her over a note..yes, he was a dumb butt. Finnley goes on to marry the guy that picked her up after the break-up. The

Shivers ran through me and I just had to read more!!! So, I literally just sat there and inhaled this whole book in one sitting!

Well this was a very HOT story! I mean the speaker scene was a five alarm on its own. However, the story seemed so rushed and so convenient that I would have liked the author to have given more time to develop Collin and Finnley’s rekindled relationship. That being said, I loved Collin, I

Wow!!! this book was AWESOME! Though I'm ashamed to admit that this is the first book I've read of Tara Sivec's, it sure don't be my last!!!

Absolutely freakn amazing! I couldn't read fast enough to get this hot, blazing, story!
When this releases, one click yourself into not only a steamy as shit romance, but a powerfully suspenseful story!

Five fire filled stars are not enough for BURNED!!!

Thank you Tara...my TBR list has just multiplied with YOUR backlist

This was a quick read full of lots of smexy time. I think about half the book is spent on smexy time, this is not a bad thing when that is what you are looking for and it was totally what I was looking for right now. Sometimes I love to just shut my brain off and just go with the ride which is exactly what I did with Burned.

Burned is amazing. I finished it at 1:30am. This is erotica with a storyline, which is my favorite kind. You will love Finn and Collin. This book manages to have danger and sex and love in equal measure. The humor sprinkled throughout is a refreshing.

The sex scenes are varied and it's so freaking informative that I think ladies that haven't learned that their body might be able to orgasm might be inspired to give the ol' puss a vibe.

This is you new favorite summer read!! 5 amazing stars.

I'm convinced that Tara can write any genre she sets out to conquer. We've seen her do funny. We've seen her do emotional. She can write the heck out of a suspense or mystery tinged romance.

And now we can add erotic to the list.

Because Burned is HOT!!! Seriously- the sex is so hot here.

But in true Tara fashion- this book is so much more. It's romantic, it's touching and it even manages to have touches of humor. It kept me on the edge of my seat at times. But most of the time it just kept me o

Audio Version - March 2019 -

This is a case where I enjoyed reading the book way more than listening to the audio version; and I’m glad I did, otherwise, I probably would have rated it lower.

Jason Clarke was very good but Ashley Klanac’s performance was mediocre at best. She over-dramatized her scenes and her slow speech pattern and stretching of words had me tempted to skip her POVs and rush through the story

Finnley still remembered the boy that broke her heart. After being married to Jordan for seventeen years, she’s had it. He’s lied and for the first time, Finnley isn’t going to allow his apologizes to change her mind. She never expected to see Collin again, sure she thought about him often and might have stalked him for a bit online, but face to face? Never. Until she did.

Collin never got over the girl he loved when he was just a boy, the one that got away... Breaking up with her has always bee

So here is the deal...Finney was just a normal gal who was gaga over her HS boyfriend Quinn. He dumped her with the equivalent of a quick post it note...then bad boy Jordan swept in and consumed her robbing her of all her independence and dreams, damn that young rebound love! Now 17 yrs later, in a shitty marriage, and a shitty existence it is time to "pull up your big girl panties" and get single! Blah, Blah, Blah, heard this before...well then a very hot and very grown

Erotic Romance. Standalone.
Seriously, Tara Sivec can do no wrong. The woman can re-write the phone book and make it either hysterically funny, hot as hell, exciting, or emotional. The whore can write any genre and just does it so damn well! If you don't know that I totally stalk her and try to hump her leg when I see her, now you do. I'm also proud to say that I have made out with Tara. Yup, tongue and all. I'd totally go gay for her! (Though I must say, Mr. Ana was thrilled

I still love Tara Sivec! It’s just that this book, although the writing is well done, it wasn’t my cup of tea. Lots of tough drama. Too many to list. From the teenage guy that dumps his two year girl friend because she won’t put out, to nightmare inducing stuff. I don’t want to ruin the story by revealing more. So if you are in the mood for mountains of fiery drama this is a good choice.

This was an "okay" read for me. I didn't hate it, but my feelings toward it are lukewarm at best. It was an alright way to pass time during my daily commute, but I probably won't remember this one for long. It was sweet, cute and a light read.

In a nutshell, Finnley is married to her second high-school sweetheart, Jordan. After seventeen long years she's finally clued in to what a loser Jordan is and kicks his butt to the curb. Finnley still pines for her first high-school sweetheart, Collin, who

Once wasn’t enough. Twice wasn’t sufficient. Every day until I die wouldn’t stop the burn.

Thoughts into words. Thoughts into words. I keep repeating this mantra, because after literally JUST finishing this book, I am a jumble of emotions. I can hear everything I want to say in my head, but it won’t quiet down enough to put the proverbial pen to paper. From the minute that Tara announced this book into existence, I knew I HAD to have it. Unlike any of her other books, it was in a genre all its ow

Holy freaking hotness!

This is a short but addictive read featuring a fast-paced and intense second-chance-romance, and, of course, a whole lot of sexy time! The prologue of this book had me instantly hooked, and I devoured the book in one sitting.

Finnley has just ended her marriage of 12 years. Although they were once madly in love, Jordan was all kinds of bad news, and after 17 years together, and her slowly falling out of love with him after being treated badly, she had to leave.

Let's say I loved the Prologue ^^

This is a quick and an amazing read ^^ I found it to be refreshing as both the MC were strong and had dignity

Let me start my saying Collin... well he had been a jerk in school but when after 17 years he came into Finley's life, he proved himself to be her true soul mate :D

I loved Finley such a strong character, she stood against her ex and she knew how she had to deal with Collin.

This is not a slow burning love story, it’s not simmering under the surface tingle. This love story is a full on scorching hot fire that will burn deep, consume and leave permanent scars.

I tend to keep the erotic romances list light because mostly they’re about gratuitous sex, with week characters and weaker plots. But once I read this blurb I couldn’t ignore it.
