Afterburn

Cosmo Red-Hot Reads from Harlequin

Afterburn delivers everything that fans of Sylvia Day love, sharp witty dialogue, relatable characters and scorching hot Erotic sex scenes along with high tension romance!

As a reader I usually have mixed feelings whenever I am reading a novel by Day, but I fell in love with Afterburn, the first novella to be launched through the Cosmo Red-Hot Reads from Harlequin! I was skeptical at first when I selected this title for a review, but in the end there were few moments that I didn't enjoy!

Gianna Rossi has worked hard to secure her job at Savor, a well-known restaurateur. If anything Gianna is trying to get on with her life after her five week affair with hottie Jackson “Jax” Rutledge ended, abruptly. Gianna connected with Jax in a sense that she hasn't felt anything, but the emptiness of his absences. Two years after their affair Gianna finds herself standing before Jax, sitting on the opposite side of a major business deal. Gianna knows that she has already been severely burned by Jax before. But he is too hot, too irresistible and Gianna knows that Jax is a man that always gets what he wants, and he wants her.

Jax is a successful business man. A hard player both in and out of the bedroom. Alpha, sexy and possessive, Jax wants Gianna. He has been unable to shed the first taste he ever sampled off her two years ago. Still, Jax knows that Gianna is a woman of pride and she isn't going to run into his arms and surrender to him like before. If Jax wants Gianna as his bedmate then he is going to have to play the game. The game of seduction and Jax is a man that always wins.

I might be overly praising the way that Day penned this novella, but it was brilliant! There wasn't anything missing and it’s easy to see why readers are so loyal to Day! She is incredible at penning Erotica novels and heroes that are impossible to resist! Afterburn is sure to please both fans and non-fans alike of Day and I for sure am looking forward to the continuation of the series!


Book Blurb for Afterburn

#1 New York Times bestselling author Sylvia Day, America's premier author of provocative fiction, delivers the debut novel from Cosmo Red-Hot Reads from Harlequin.

The realization that Jax still affected me so strongly was a jagged pill to swallow. He'd only been part of my life for five short weeks two years ago. But now he was back. Walking into a deal I'd worked hard to close. And God, he was magnificent. His eyes were a brown so dark they were nearly black. Thickly lashed, they were relentless in their intensity. Had I really thought they were soft and warm? There was nothing soft about Jackson Rutledge. He was a hard and jaded man, cut from a ruthless cloth.

In that moment I understood how badly I wanted to unravel the mystery of Jax. Bad enough that I didn't mind how much it was going to cost me...
