I have one rule. No distractions.
I’ve been burned enough to not let anything get in the way of my dream.
And that is what I am here to do.
I am at my family’s vineyard ready to revive it back to life.
But no one told me they hired someone to do my job.
I should know better than to let Everett Taylor get to me.
I hate him.
No matter that he looks like sex on a stick.

This was my first time reading a book by Tori Fox and she did not disappoint. Burnout brings us the story of Everette and Layla. Everette is a part time firefighter and overseeing the family vineyard, Layla's vineyard. Layla has been traveling the world and while she was gone Everette was hired to oversee things. Needless to say, she was not happy and their relationship started off not liking each other.

Through out the summer, secrets are shared between the two and the passion and steam for each

Layla's returned home to revive her family's once legendary vineyard. She is less than pleased to find her grandmothers have hired a guy to take care of her vineyard while she's gone. A guy who clearly has no idea how to care for a vineyard. Everett takes one look at the gorgeous granddaughter come home and he's hooked. Too bad she clearly already hates him. But the attraction is still there. Will Layla give into it? And when (if) she does, will she open up her heart along with

This book was provided by the author in exchange for an honest review. Thank you Tori Fox!
Burnout is a standalone book set in Everydag Heroes series and tells the story of Layla and Everret.
I haven’t read a book by Tori Fox that I didn’t like. Burnout was another amazing Romance book by her and I really loved Layla and Everret’s story. Although this is a Romance read, it also talks about some tough topics such as loss and an overdose. There is no trigger warning so please ke

"You made me whole Layla. You took this broken man and healed him." And with those words Tori Fox and Everett stole my heart.

Burnout is another beautiful addition to the K Bromberg Everyday Heroes world. These small town romances have such big hearts and deal with such depth of emotion.

Burnout is a heated summer romance between volunteer firefighter Everett and vineyard owner Layla. He is broken hearted, lost and lonely (but also domineering, sensual and cocky). She has hurt and demons from her

This was my first book by Tori Fox and I was not sure how to feel at the start of it all. It kinda gave off the vibe that I should have read another book before this. But I was wrong it all made sense the more I read and got sucked into it.

It shows a lot of hidden trauma that even we don't know exsist within ourselves and how we are the ones causing the issues in our lives not those around us.

4.5 Stars for Burnout (Everyday Hero’s)
This is the first book I have read by this author but it certainly won’t be the last.
Burnout is Layla and Everett’s story and it’s a captivating tale that drew me in from the first page. Everett is a part time firefighter as well as overseeing the running of Layla’s family vineyard. When Layla returned home she wasn’t expecting a new man to be running the family business and truth be told she doesn’t take kindly to Everett, in fact she goes out of her way t

This is my first book by Tori Fox but will NOT be my last one. This is a book in the K. Bromberg Everyday Heroes Collection. This book features Everett, a volunteer fireman, who moved to get away from his past along with his family. He lands a job taking over a vineyard that is trying to renew itself from a loss. He is a hot alpha male with a brain, yea ladies a rarity in today's world! He meets the vineyard's actual owner, Layla, a college student. Layla's family has owned the vineyard but due ...more

Layla has come home to fix the family vineyard to get back to the successful glory days, but she's not pleased to see Everett working with her vineyard. She's not exactly a nice person to him, and frankly, she got very annoying after a while. I know that she has demons from the way her mother treated her, but seriously, enough is enough. Everett has his own demons which have really put him on pause with life (I can't blame him there), and he certainly can't understand why Layla would hate him fr ...more

Layla knew her entire life that she would one day take over the family vineyard. She knew how to take care of the grapes, make wine and now all she had to was finish her MBA. Everett hasn’t been home in a very long time he feels like he can’t go home. A tragedy from his past has him unable to move past anything with his family. When Layla comes home for the Summer to find Everett has pretty much taken over the care of the vineyard she is not happy. She is down right mean to Everett every chance ...more

I love the world created by K. Bromberg"s Everyday Heroes and Tori Fox's edition is a perfect fit tn that world. We have our cocky, alpha volunteer fireman Everett. Versus our sassy heroine determined to save her families winery while guarding her heart but not her sharp whit. This would be Layla.
Both characters are fighting in a way to save themselves while fighting their growing attraction to each other. To not get hurt. Yet the feeling of finally being complete again, how do you walk

This is a wonderful addition to this amazing series and is Everett and Layla’s story. When free spirited Layla returns home to revive her family’s vineyard, she is not happy to meet Everett who is a volunteer fireman, and he is overseeing the running of the vineyard. These two both have baggage from their pasts, and although Everett is domineering and cocky, they need to find a way to work together to ensure the vineyards success. This is a well written story which is emotional, and with family, ...more

Layla still bears the emotional scars of her past and she has been educating and training to take over the family vineyard and ensure its ongoing viability. When she returns home, she is surprised and upset to find her grandmother away and that a stranger has been put in charge.

Everett is a volunteer firefighter who is trying to put as much distance between himself and his past as possible. Although he and Layla don’t get off to the best start it is only a matter of time before the chemistry be

This is the first book I have read by the author and being part of the Everyday Heroes World just had me wanting to check it out. I have mixed feelings about this book as I enjoy reading enemies to lovers but I had a challenge connecting with the characters. Layla returns home to resurrect her family’s vineyard. What she finds is a man, Everett, who was hired to manage the vineyard who does not really know what he is doing. From the first time Everett sees Layla, the sparks are flying; at least ...more

This was my first time reading this author, and I hate to say it but I almost didn't finish it numerous times. The flow was off for me, but more importantly, I just did not care for Layla at ALL. I understand her mother was horrible, but that doesn't give you a free pass to treat others like crap. I don't think she truly deserved Everett -- who is the saving grace here, hands down -- and I just never once connected with her. I just found myself getting angrier with her as the book went on, and w ...more

Tori Fox has not only given us a great addition to the Everyday Hero’s world she has taken the enemies to friends trope and made it something fresh and raw and beautiful.

This story is about Everett and Layla, two fractured people who don’t believe in love, that is until they spend a steamy summer working at Layla’s family winery. It their summer enough to heal these two cracked hearts?

Tori has given us this story of love, trust and acceptance. It’s a story about family, some heartwarming but als

Burnout intertwines with the Everyday Heroes World and takes us on the journey of Layla and Everett's HEA. The chemistry between these two is intense and can be felt radiating off the words on the page. These two fight like cats and dogs and this only causes the intensity between them to rise. A story that gives you a little of everything and will have you crying, laughing, frustrated but ultimately falling in love with these two right alongside them. Their story is enchanting with just the righ ...more

I seriously loved Layla and Everett! Tori Fox you seriously broke my heart and put it back together with these two. Everett is seriously so broken from so much trauma, and Layla was kind of hiding behind her brokenness if that makes sense. These two sort of we’re each others ray of lights in some ways. This was just such a well written book, and I can suggest it enough.

Layla returns home in hopes that can get her great grandfather and grandfather’s vineyard to be more successful that it was in the past. She even was as far as going to collage to get her MBA and to be able to know how she can turn it around; her grandmother was hilarious.

This book had me all emotional because neither Layla or Everett are perfect. They are bent not broken but together, I could see how they healed each other. They both have baggage and seeing them work together and their relationship develop had me crying and smiling at the same time. The chemistry is amazing and the story is sweet and sexy all at once.

Tori Fox is the author of contemporary romance with a little bit of angst and a whole lot of sexy. Besides writing you can find her curled up on the couch with her dog reading a book, yelling at the TV during a hockey game or at a karaoke bar singing her heart out. No matter where she is there will always be a bottle of champagne near. Tori lives above the clouds with her husband in the Rocky Moun ...more
