Trainer and martial artist Rosie Miller's zen is seriously compromised when Hunter Black—her former coach and lover—becomes her new boss. And with all the sexual energy still crackling between them, her poor little zen doesn't stand a chance. So this time, Rosie is determined to play by her rules….
Burned - the story of Hayley's sister - Rosie. It was vey much similar to hayley's story with the main difference that the hero was someone from Rosie's past. Hunter was was her first and only love and he re-appears in her life 5 years kater, after walking out on her.
It's a nice, hot second-chance romance where the hero and heroine meet 5 years after he left her. They've both grown up and changed and while the attraction between them is as strong as ever, being together is not that easy.
This is the story of the other Miller sister, Rosie and in many ways it's similar to Hayley's, to similar, I'd say. A major weakness for me was that it lacked the humour of book 1 and I found Rosie to be more insecure than Hayeley.
Rosie was determined to Hunter at bay despite their explosive chemistry. Just like Hayley she tried to keep her feelings out of their sexscapedes and just like Hayeley, she discovered it was impossible. This time around it was Hayeley that helped her sister keep her true love.
Rosie was strong and independent, she had overcome her issues but she was clueless how to be in a mature relationship with Hunter. I didn't like how scared of her feelings she was, how unwilling to open her heart to love again.
Hunter, on the other hand, was great - determined, going after what he wants and at the same time he was careful with Rosie. I liked how he owned up to his mistakes and wanted a chance to prove his love to her.
As with previous book, I found the story too simple and predictable. The characters didn't really win me for their cause and the lack of humour made this a less enjoyable read than Ripped.
