Burn for You (Slow Burn #1) Read Online Free - The marriage is fake. But for a sassy chef and an arrogant billionaire, the sparks are real…
Jackson “The Beast” Boudreaux is rich, gorgeous, and unbelievably rude to the staff at Chef Bianca Hardwick’s New Orleans restaurant. Bianca would sooner douse herself in hot sauce than cook for Jackson again, but when he asks her to cater his fund-raiser, Bianca can’t refuse, knowing the cash will help pay her mother’s medical bills. Then Jackson makes another outrageous request: Marry me. The unconventional offer includes an enormous sum—money Bianca desperately needs, even if it does come with a contract—and a stunning ring.
The heir to a family bourbon dynasty, Jackson knows the rumors swirling around him. The truth is even darker. Still, he needs a wife to secure his inheritance, and free-spirited, sassy Bianca would play the part beautifully. Soon, though, their simple business deal evolves into an emotional intimacy he’s built walls to avoid.
As the passion heats up between them, Bianca and Jackson struggle to define which feelings are real and which are for show. Is falling for your fake fiancé the best happy ending…or a recipe for disaster?

Burn For You is book one in the Slow Burn series by J.T. Geissinger. J.T. is a new to me author. I won this book in a give-a-way. This is one of those times when I am smacking myself in the forehead and asking myself why in the world I haven’t read anything by this author before! This book gets a...

Awesome. I had so much fun.
A perfect example how an overused plot can still be enjoyable and original when it's done right.
NOT ONE mistake according to my own personal romance rule book.
- Enemies-to-lovers romance
- Marriage of convenience trope
- A beauty and the beast theme
- A stro...

*3.5 stars rounded up*
JTG is an auto-buy favourite, as she's one of only a few authors who can write smart and intelligent prose across all genres. Without a doubt Burn for You wasn't mediocre, though it lacked the intensity that I attribute to her books.
Still, it was a fun way to pass three laz...

She was my religion. My north and south, my heaven and earth, the axis of rightness around which everything had suddenly aligned. For the first time in my life, all my polarized parts worked as one, humming happily along in harmony with the universe, finally understanding their place. ...

For whatever reason I shelved this book as no-thanks-but-no.
As my buddy Sigmund Freud said:
"The great question that has never been answered and which I have not yet been able to answer, despite my 30 years of research into the feminine soul, is: ‘What does a woman want?’"
Well, I made a mistak...

The man gave the term resting bitch face a whole new meaning. He looked like his face had caught on fire and someone had tried to put it out with a fork.
Do you love BEAUTY AND THE BEAST retellings? Need I even say more at this point? Probably not. But I will. This isn't your standard homage but t...

A solid 4 stars!
Wow. I can't believe I didn't read this until today! This had everything I want in a book—Enemies to Lovers, Marriage of Convenience, Slow burn, a grumpy hero and fantastic heroine. Plus, it's set in New Orleans and features recipes of food in between chapters. Yum.
