Once Bitten, Forever Burned

Once Bitten, Forever Burned


Eve Langlais and Stacey Kennedy

Do NOT attempt to read while cooking.

I completely love this book. Why? You may ask . . Well, because you get a story told by two amazing women.

To start the story off we discover that something terrible has happened, Brittany who lost her one true love has gone on to suffer even greater at the hands of a very ugly man. Deciding to fight on and hope for her own revenge one day, Brittany tries to maintain somewhat of a normal life for herself. Hard to do when things have changed so much in just ten short years. Going about her "normal" day to day routine didn't include seeing a *ghost*. (Ok, so maybe not REALLY a ghost, but . . ) Now Brittany wonders . . if she may just have a chance at that slice of happiness she was sure had withered away.

Rolling into the second part of this book . . We meet Kiara. The daughter of an Alpha, she shouldn't "want" for anything . . and she doesn't, not really. Kiara believes she has found the one, her true love. That thought in itself should make her happy, but it doesn't. Her alpha father would never approve. Seeing his daughter becoming more unhappy with each passing day, daddy dearest decides to do something about it . . . arrange a mate for her. This doesn't go over very well, and becomes a scramble to figure out a way to be with the one she loves and not her intended.

Both of the stories just pour of the pages. Emotions take over and it's hard to NOT feel what each woman is going through. You may even find yourself wanting to reach out and give a knowing squeeze.

Like a good recipe, this book has all the required ingredients and has them in the right amounts. Starting with the emotionally pull right down to the heat factor.

Perfect for a lazy afternoon, in your favorite reading spot . . sipping a tall glass of iced tea.


  1. Wow what a great review. You really nailed this book!! I love Stacey Kennedy and am totally looking forward to read more of Eve's books!!

  2. If you haven't already, give Eve's THE GEEK JOB a twirl, or HIS TEDDY BEAR . . both were very good.

    Yes, I totally agree on the LOVE for Stacey . . I was hooked after the first book I read of hers made me cry.
