Liam Knight, a sexy panty-melting, hard-bodied streetfighter and renowned tattoo artist, is rising up the ranks of the UFC Middleweight Division, but he’s about to get knocked out by his past.
Quinn Kelley is a semester away from becoming a college graduate when her mother’s death sends her spiraling, forcing her to go back to her hometown and a past she can’t outrun.
Nearly a decade ago, Liam and Quinn fell in love while surviving on the city streets together, but they were torn apart by one irreversible night. Now each has moved forward without the other, but like a tattoo on the heart, absolute love creates a lasting burn.
Quinn has kept a tight rein on her emotions, but with the passing of her mother, the foundation she’s built begins to crack. Will seeing Liam again crumble her fortress to the ground, uncovering the flame that still burns? Or will it extinguish the fire forever?
Liam’s tough exterior and resentful demeanor hides more than a wounded heart. He’s tormented by guilt over what happened to Quinn—and the secret he kept, even from her. But revealing his secrets would require unearthing the all-consuming monster he keeps caged in the darkest part of his soul, the one that threatens to devour him.
When they’re given a second chance, will they let go of their fear and pride and let the flame between them become one?
Or will the heat burn them both?
To say Burn by Allie Juliette Mousseau is a second chance, friends to lover’s story would be too simplistic to describe the relationship between Quinn and Liam. They grew up together in the same foster home and have always had a close relationship. Tragedy pulled them apart, but distance and time have a way of bringing them back together.
This was an amazing story that ran the gamut of emotions. I laughed, I cried, and really became engrossed in the story of two broken people who come together and make something stronger. Both Liam and Quinn have gone through a horrific past, and it was heartbreaking to see what they had to go through. I loved the strength Quinn showed despite everything she’d gone through, and the way she was able to rebuild her life after everything she’d been through. Liam was the ultimate protector, and I loved how sweet he was with Quinn and a leader among his brothers. The story was interspersed with snippets from the past so you feel like you know their whole journey from beginning to end. Great book!
