When love calls...
Alright, alright, alright! The Madaris family is back! It's been approximately 2 ½ years since we were last given a glimpse into the lives of our beloved Brenda Jackson family. But with the release of Slow Burn, the story of Slade Madaris, we're reintroduced to the whole clan, including Justin & Lorren, the couple who started it all.
Skye Barclay gets the shock of her life when she finds out that not only is she adopted, but that she also has a brother; a brother who turns out to be Vincent Madaris, the adopted son of Justin & Lorren Madaris.
Against her family's and her fiancé's wishes, Skye heads to Texas to meet Vincent. She's scared of what will happen once she gets to Texas, and understandably so. But her fears are quickly allayed when the Madaris family opens their homes and their hearts to her.
The moment Slade Madaris lays eyes on Skye, he feels an instant inexplicable connection with her. And the fact that Madaris blood runs strong in his veins, Slade pursues Skye, quickly wearing down her defenses and embarking on a beautiful love affair. Their euphoria is short-lived, however, when danger comes calling. Will Skye give into the pressure, or will she stand and fight for her newfound happiness?
Slow Burn is classic Brenda Jackson. You know an author has mastered their craft when you can literally feel the emotions portrayed between the characters; whether it be the familial bonds or the romance and passion between the couples. Each novel that Jackson writes is a testament to this fact. I've yet to be disappointed with any of Jackson's literary offerings. I'm a fan for life.
