The BookWhisperer's Rating:
Simone Brightston knows she can beat the rap her enemies are pinning on her. An Irish witch is nobody's fool, and she didn't get to her position on the high council without serious power. But her cousins want her to hide out—and they somehow convinced her arch nemesis to play getaway driver.
Of all the men she's known, Nikolaj Veis is the hardest to intimidate. With his demon-dark eyes and his inscrutable beauty, he's as desirable as he is dangerous. And he knows better than to underestimate Simone. So when he pulls up on a roaring bike and tells her to climb on or fight it out, she grabs a handful of jacket and holds on tight. Running from the law may not be the smartest plan. But when it comes to Nick, hot pursuit and a blazing fast ride are exactly what Simone's looking for . . .
As we all know, I love me some Rebecca Zanetti’s books. I am always engrossed in every plot and all the characters but Wicked Burn was a little harder for me to get swept away in.
While the beginning starts off with action, Simone and Nick running from the enforcers, I found myself wanting more action than what was present. I didn’t really get hooked until Simone met with the high council to discuss the charges that were brought against her. It felt like this was the time when all of the good secrets started coming forefront making it all more exciting.
I will also say that while I loved Nick, Simone wasn’t my favorite. Maybe it was because of her hard, emotionless personality (which she needed to be a part of the high council) that didn’t sit right with me. It also could be that Nick scorned her in their younger years but it made me feel like she wasn’t all into their relationship and that she didn’t deserve Nick.
However, this story had some crazy, amazing plot twists and all sorts of surprises. Bear showed up and is revealed as a more important character in this series. There are tons of things that we learn that I feel is going to make the future books brilliant.
While Nick and Simone’s story wasn’t my favorite, it was still really good and a part of a great series.
