Burning Desire by Heather Leigh
Roxanne Moretti is a Condemned Angel’s princess and her father is the MC President. Because her father values education, she is a recent college graduate and helping at an MC bar bartending. She loves to let loose and dance, so Roxanne also has a highlight dance that she does at the bar.
Chase DeLuca is the childhood friend of Jeremy Moretti, Roxanne’s older brother. He belongs to a rival MC, Hell’s Rebels. Growing up, Chase has always had feelings for Roxanne but was forewarned to stay away from her by her father. A chance encounter at the bar, and they spark their attraction to one another. Can they stay true to their word to Roxanne’s father and stay away from one another, or is their attraction too much that they cannot stay apart?
This book has the whole Shakespeare Romeo and Juliet vibe. They are basically star-crossed lovers that cannot be together because of which MC they belong to. I have to say, this book had suspense, and a few twists that I did not see coming. My only complaint is that I had to wait until about 60% through the book to actually get into the storyline which is rough since the book ended short thereafter.
I gave this book 3 out of 5 stars.
About The Author
Deciding to write books was something I had contemplated for a while. A co-worker of mine had gotten me started me on the 50 Shades Trilogy. I had quickly became absorbed! Reading contemporary romance had become a part of me.
Little did I know that my daughter was a product of the “50 Shades Baby Boom”! I remember going to my doctor’s appointment to find out that we were off to labor and delivery- and I didn’t download any new books to my kindle! Talk about bummed out! However, I made up for that when I was home for my maternity leave. I believe we read 40+ books while I was home.
I am a full time new mom, and wife. Yes, I do work full time, I am currently doing multiple things, bouncing back after baby, weight watchers, exercising, training for a 5k, reading and writing. So far, I have really enjoyed writing as a hobby.
My work book club, “HE” had consumed us (and by us, I mean 2). We were critics of the stories and characters. I then thought to myself, “hmm, I bet I could write stories just like this, and have them turn out like I’d want them to.” Well, joking turned into thinking. Thinking turned into brainstorming. Brainstorming lead to opening a word document and letting my mind explore.
Growing up I had written short stories with friends, and as extra credit for school. This is probably where it all started… I had turned in one of my short stories without re-reading, or editing it completely. I had my paper returned to me saying the “content was inappropriate.” Apparently contemporary romance was frowned upon in English class! Oops! So maybe I was destined to become a writer.
I thought to myself that I want to live in this world and make a difference and have a part of me in history after I leave. This is me staying forever young.
Here I will post my journey, it’s a learning experience for me, so please bear with me.
