This fire has finally ignited.
Slow Burn by Danielle Norman is LIVE!!!
Paris changed me.
Not the city.
The girl. The woman. The center of my world.
From the first time we held hands on the school bus, to our first kiss, we carefully moved toward one thing.
The day that I’d ask her to be mine.
How was I to know that she thought friends couldn’t be lovers?
I’ll prove her wrong.
When her world turns upside down, I’ll be there.
When she’s feeling lost, I’ll be there.
After all, a spark can smolder for years before it begins to burn.
Before becoming a romance writer, Danielle was a body double for Heidi Klum and a backup singer for Adele. Now, she spends her days trying to play keep away from Theo James, who won’t stop calling her or asking her out.
And all of this happens before she wakes up and faces reality where in fact she is a 50-something mom with grown kids. She’s been married longer than Theo’s been alive, and she now gets her kicks riding a Harley.
As far as her body, she can thank Ben & Jerry’s for that, as well as gravity and vodka. But she says that she could never be Adele’s backup since she never stops saying the F-word long enough to actually sing.
Danielle writes about kickass women with even better shoes and the men that try to tame them (silly, silly men).
Asher has been in love with his best friend Paris for years. Now that he is back in town to manage his Dad’s veterinary clinic, he is determined to show Paris that they are much more than friends and what they could have together however when he shares his feelings with her, he is surprised by her reaction and not in a good way.
It has been drilled into Paris since she was a child that friends don’t make good lovers as evidenced by her parent’s relationship. When Asher shares his feelings, she panics as she doesn’t want to lose the person who has stood by her and supported her through all her ups and down. When a rift develops between them because of this she must decide if she is willing to take the chance on what they could have together.
Asher is patient and understanding as Paris tries to adjust to the changes in their relationship and once Paris works through the baggage of her past it is clear that they are soulmates. I am enjoying this series and the relationship that the sisters have.
