Once he made up his mind, there was no changing it back…

Twenty-five-year-old ICU nurse Rachel Miller still remembers the day she fell for her brother’s best friend, Nate Doyle. She was sixteen. Eleven years older, Nate never gave her a second look. Even now, the handsome, red-headed firefighter keeps her at arm’s length.

Raised in a traditional Irish family, Nate respects commitment, but he has no intention of going down that road again. He measures his relationships in weeks or months, which makes Rachel off-limits. He buries his attraction to the woman she’s become and then watches from a distance as another man breaks her heart.

No longer willing to stand on the sidelines, Nate makes a bold move that challenges him to become a different man—for Rachel. But will she give him the chance? He’s devastated when he learns she anticipates any romantic relationship with him will be brief, knowing he isn’t the committing type. Can he convince her she’s the only one for him? Or will he sabotage his own efforts and prove she’s right?

Don't Miss This Phenomenal New Voice in Contemporary Romance!!

I’m so glad I took a chance on this book and found Suzanne Winslow! The story captured my attention from the very beginning, and I proceeded to fall in love with these characters and their poignant, heartfelt story.

The characters in Burned are real and artfully written with depth and detail - as if they are your longtime friends. The story is sweet and unpredictable at times - making this a treasure of a romance novel. The author draws you into their lives so you want more. Luckily there is more coming in the series. Great first book - can't wait for the next!.

It has been a while since I read a book like this one. Where things are more implied than actually written out. I enjoyed this story for the slow burn, the way our couple interacts from the beginning, which continues throughout the whole story.

Their story is not easy on them but it is what a real relationship should look like in that they really do communicate very well with each other. It wouldn’t work if they didn’t. One of my favorite things about their story is their ability to be open with themselves and each other.

There are many characters to like in this story and a couple not so much. But it’s how they deal with the ones whom you don’t like that gives it the right amount of realism. Well written and beautifully told
