Burning for You by Michele Dunaway
What Goodreads says:
Mark your calendar: The Man of the Month series is back—with a sexy new hero who will definitely heat things up...
The Man of the Month The last thing Taylor Krebs wants is a man. Her crazy, possessive ex-boyfriend has caused her enough drama to last a lifetime. Putting drama and men behind her she focuses on her fledgling photography business. That is, until gorgeous fireman Joe Marino—otherwise known as Mr. September on the Sexy Public Servants Charity Calendar—walks into her life. Joe wants Taylor to photograph burn victims pro bono for a book he’s spearheading for the Burn Recovery Support Group...and he’ll do everything in his power to persuade her to take on his cause.
Taylor soon finds out that she isn’t immune to Joe’s persuasive charms—both professionally and personally—and soon they are burning up the sheets. But will Joe’s secrets and Taylor’s need for quiet stability tear them apart? Or will this Man of the Month also end up being Taylor’s love for all days?
Dunaway tackles a important issue in Burning for You. That issue is how people react to scaring in this case burn victims. That issue is wrapped up in the romance between Taylor Krebs and Joe Marino. Several other issues are also written into the story. Taylor has been stalked in the past. She also provides photo’s of children who are still born for their grieving parents. All of those issues could result in a story that is preachy but that does not happen. Instead each plays an important part in the overall story arc.
I loved the flow of the story. The addition of two very interesting and well-developed characters added to the appeal. There was tension from various sources through out the book. I saw the big problem before it appeared. The big surprise for me was how quickly it was resolved. I found Burning for You to be a very interesting and enjoyable contemporary romance.
St Martin’s Press published Burning for You by Michele Dunaway in 2015.
I received an ARC of Burning for You from Netgalley in return for an honest review.
