Burn by Lisa Carlisle #Review
Posted by brriske
A vampire on the run.
A shapeshifting bounty hunter hired to capture her.
Who will outsmart whom?
Layla Black flees London, on the run from a master vampire. She reinvents herself as Angelica, the singer of an 80s metal cover band in Boston, but her past soon catches up to her.
Devon St. Clair, bounty hunter extraordinaire, is in hot pursuit of a thieving vampire. Vampires, he hated them. Capturing Layla should be a satifsying gig that nets a nice profit.
But Devon wasn’t counting on spitfire Layla being his target, distracting him from his mission. Besides, shapeshifters and vampires didn’t mix. And more bloodsuckers are on their tail.
The hunt is on. But, who will be predator, and who will be prey?
Burn is the fourth installment in the Underground Encounters series, set in a club that attracts supernatural creatures. Each book features a different couple — and perhaps species! — and can be read on its own.
A vampire and a shifter? Really! A female rock star vampire, too. And not just a regular shifter but a shifter who can choose his animal. That alone was enough to catch my attention! The storyline and fast pace kept me reading. Hot steamy scenes were mixed with intrigue and suspense.
Overall it was well written. Characters were a mixed bag, though. The two main ones and a few others were fleshed out enough to be believable in their responses, but some of the other background characters seemed a bit flat.
As an independent reviewer for Romance Authors that Rock, I gave it a solid four hearts. The fast pace and premise earned it that, while the lack of depth in the bad guys and a few others kept that last heart away. Those steamy hot sex scenes, though!!!
