On Dave’s first flight after returning to his career as a smoke jumper, their plane crashes – leaving three dead. Dave is severely injured. After several months hospitalized in Reno he heads to Nate and Kay’s new home in Oregon.
When Olivia ran she briefly stopped at her parents’ home in Savannah. Pressured by her parents to forgive he husband RJ for his serial infidelities, she quickly moved on to her uncle Jake’s welcoming sports bar in rural Florida to heal from her ex-husband’s treatment.
Dave and Olivia’s ongoing stories are told separately in considerable detail through the middle portion of the book before Dave comes to his senses and tracks her to Florida and her uncle’s bar. There he finds her happy and busy – but not very welcoming.
This third book of the River Series has much of the allure of the first two while emphasizing the difficult relationship of Olivia and Dave. While I enjoyed it, it isn’t as strong as the first two books in the series – it seems to drag through the middle.
Olivia Benedetti-Harper is a good girl. Everything she has done is because of the control others have over her, that is, her parents and her husband. Her job is a result of pleasing her father. Her marriage is a result of pleasing her parents. Her marriage consists of playing the part of the good little wife. All of that changes when Dave intervenes on her behalf as her husband becomes violent. It’s then followed by an intense moment between her and Dave, which leaves a mark on both of them. Olivia is already marked by her controlled life, as well as a life changing event that comes her way.
Love Burns is a story of how these two people take events that have marked them and use them to begin making changes in their lives. Those changes will affect the relationship that begins between them. I love the way their relationship grows. I also love how they each find the strength to change the negatives that have marked them and turn them into positives. The support they gave each other as they worked through their own issues while helping the other with theirs was another element that made the story enjoyable. But if you are thinking that theirs was a smooth relationship, think again. There were plenty of ups and downs in the relationship, and the author does a great job of getting you to feel what they are feeling. From tears to smiles, you will feel it all as you read and get to know Olivia and David. The author has also been faithful to the genre of sexy, contemporary romance stories by including an abundance of intimate scenes that complement the story. As you read the story and see how all of these elements come together, you’ll find that Love Burns is quite an enjoyable read.
