Burn for You (Slow Burn #1)

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 Jack...

    4 Beastly Stars“This is a business deal, Bianca. A good one for both of us. We’re not doing favors for each other. No one is getting taken advantage of here. We’re going into it with our eyes open, fully informed and consenting, with an exit strategy that’s painless and precise. Which is a hell of a lot more than most people can say about their marriages.”To say that the first meeting between Bianca Hardwick and Jackson Boudreaux was a ...

    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 there's enough similarities to tickle your fancy and enough differences to delight you. In addition we have a hate-to-love slowburn and a fake-marriage tr...

    Oh my! Jackson Boudreaux! I could leave my review right there because really, who doesn’t love a big, burly, scowling hero? Dig a little deeper and you’ll find that Bianca’s mama was right. Crème brulee. “Hard as nails on the outside, but inside all soft and gooey sweet.”So yeah, I’m absolutely heart over heels in love with Ms. Geissinger’s latest hero. I have to say he’s one of the most interesting male characters I’ve ever re...

    ARC received for review4.25 stars ...It (and I) needs an epilogue!!!!!!!!!!!Great story..tale as old time..This book hit so many emotions. I laughed and I cried. Jackson aka the "Beast" has a library. He was so damaged yet he was able to open up to loving and being loved. Bianca gives better than she gets. I can't wait to try some of the recipes Ms. Geissinger graciously included at the end of each chapter.One more thing...cover art people...plea...

    4.5 starsI’ve heard of JT Geissenger in my book feeds but now I realise what I’ve been missing out by not reading her work. BURN FOR YOU delighted my literary senses from start to finish. The two main characters were both hugely likeable in their reality, completely lacking perfection, both stubborn and fun to observe clashing. This book is a piece of wonderful hate to love with great story substance.Jackson is like a grisly bear, a pathetic ...

    J.T. Geissinger is an author whose name and books have crossed my feed a fair bit, though I’ve never gotten around to reading any of her works, so ‘Burn for You’ is a fresh start for me. And what an introduction it was.There can never be enough fairy tale retellings for me—the raunchier the better, the funnier the more cherished and the dirtier, the more I fall to my knees in worship. Geissinger’s ‘Burn For You’ fits all of these ca...

    4 Hungry Stars!!!J.T. has that kind of writing style that I feel in my Romeo & Julep, and by that I mean my heart, but yes that could be an innuendo (Leave me alone! Yes, it can!). But seriously, her writing style is poetic and pulls all the feels out of my Cheesecake. Ugh, sorry. I couldn’t help it. Let me explain. If you haven’t guessed yet, this book centers around food. The heroine is a chef and includes the Bourbon that Jackson’s famil...

    “I think sometimes it’s easier for a man to be the worst version of himself than to let the world keep breaking his heart.” It took only one book for me to become a fan for life of J.T. Geissinger’s writing—her characters leaping from the pages with wonderfully engaging dialogues, and sizzling sexual chemistry that leaves you feeling breathless—but it is her remarkable knack for igniting every single cell in my body and breaking my h...

    If anyone was to ask, Beauty and the Beast is my absolute favorite fairy tale. EVER. There is something about a tortured and angry hero and the heroine who helps him heal and the inevitable true love that ties them together. Burn For You (Slow Burn Book #1) is the first in J.T. Geissinger's sexy and addicting new series and it was honestly consuming. I laughed and I swooned and I just could not get enough of Mr. Tall, Dark and Broody. Don't get m...

    4++ slowly- burning stars.I really like this author's characters a lot. I read a lot of books and sometimes experience that similar vibe (feeling) when reading about the MC's. But in Bianca and Jackson's case, they both came across as original and unique characters even within the parameters of her being super-sassy and him being the dark, tortured, broody type. Needless to say I loved.....loved these character's and the direction this story took...

    The first book by JT Geissinger that I read left me speechless because of its depth and the desperation it emanates…. Not sure how long I cried and they were really ugly tearsSo I was almost surprised (yet looking back I should not have been) that this author is also able to mix that depth and emotion with humor … And OMG did she mix it … I can not remember laughing this hard in the last week. You might also award this book with a gold star...

    I love Jackson. Recommended for the safety gang. Complete with wet dreams, hate to love vibes, and a secretly super caring hero.

    I LOVE J.T. Geissinger's writing—most especially her Wicked Games series so I was excited to start a new series by her. She combines great storylines with sexiness in her novels that leave you seriously melting from the heat! And while Burn for You was a slow burn romance and definitely had some of the heat factor, unfortunately this was not my favorite by her.This is a remake of the classic Beauty and the Beast. Jackson Boudreaux has dinner at...

    I’ve only read two of J.T. Geissinger’s books, including this one, and both of them made it on my TOP PICK list for the year! Geissinger’s writing is just incredible and her characters, even more so. Jackson Boudreaux and Bianca Hardwick we absolutely AMAZING! Their personalities, their confidence, their boldness - everything about them, individually and together, just did it for me. Even now, it’s hard for me to put in to words how these...

    ***ARC received for an honest review***A reluctant hero. A spunky heroine. And a gorgeous library. Sound familiar?Steamy, grouchy Jackson Boudreaux needs a caterer for a charity function. Who better to ask than the sassy restauranteur that he just insulted? "'You. Are being. Unreasonable.' Boy, did he like punctuate his words with a hammer! A laugh escaped me.

    Holy nuts hang onto your hats with this one. Jackson "the Beast" Boudreux and he's set his sights on Chef Bianca Hardwick, owner of one of the best restaurants in the French Quarter. What the Beast wants the Beast gets and Bianca sure isn't going to make it easy for him. I honestly never laughed so hard at some on the antics and idioms in this story. I have to hand it to J.T. she did a great job injecting not just the creole but making up those l...

    “I think sometimes it’s easier for a man to be the worst version of himself than to let the world keep breaking his heart.” Fans of slow burn romance will love Burn For You, the first of a new series by JT Geissinger. It is hilariously funny, full of sexual tension that keeps you on the edge of your seat, and a tortured hero who doesn't believe in love. “The first time I laid eyes on the man known throughout the state of Louisiana as t...

    ***ARC Provided via NetGalley and InkSlingerPR***When you start a book in the series "Slow Burn" you have certain expectations about the pacing of the book, and this was definitely a slow burn.When you first meet Jackson, he is a jerk and strikes sparks off of Bianca almost instantly...and you are looking forward to them pursuing this attraction. The potential for an amazing hate f*** is there...and then it fizzles until about 60% in the book, I ...

    I really, truly enjoyed this book. It made me laugh, and cry, and sigh, and swoon. I loved the Beauty and the Beast aspects of the story (especially the LIBRARY!), and I really love the enemies to lovers, marriage of convenience, and forced proximity tropes! This is my first book by the author, but she's definitely on my list now!Bianca Hardwick is a chef, and she's just opened her own restaurant in the French Quarter, in New Orleans. Her mother ...

    "Slap, slap, kiss." I loved this book so much I want to hire a skywriter to tell the world how amazing it is. I've been a fan of this author so I would probably click on anything she wrote, just knowing it would be good. But this surpassed good immediately, moved on to amazing, and finished at movie-worthy. I sighed and swooned. I giggle-snorted and laughed out loud many times. I sniffled and worried. I raged and vented. I blushed and basked. I ...

    I found myself torn between wanting to obsessively read Burn For You and dragging it out because I didn't want the story to end. I absolutely adored Bianca and Jackson. These characters were just so real and complex. Their chemistry was chart-topping. The NOL sayings kept a smile on my face. And the slow burn had me yearning for just one more minute of reading time. This story was fun, diverse, real, as well as gut-wrenching. It was easy to see t...
