A couch, a lie, and a Mafia problem. What could go wrong?
The day Ben Johnson decides to sell his couch is the day he gets a new roommate. Pepper is chatty, spunky, and nothing he is looking for but everything he might need. After all, his last roommate tried to drain him dry and is now involving him with possible Mafia characters. While spending time with Pepper, he realizes that not only has she moved into his apartment, but she seems to be moving into his heart as well.
Always predictable and now dishonest, Pepper Stratten is following her own dreams, not the dreams her parents have for her. After moving halfway across the country, she finds out her newly leased apartment is mold-infested, and she ends up rooming with a stranger—of the male variety. As her lie continues to grow, so do her feelings for Ben—until a lie of his own threatens to send their relationship up in flames. But Pepper might be the one person Ben needs to put his fire out.
It has been a long time since I have read a steamy romance
book, so I decided the time was now. The
world around me is crazy and it has been hard to focus on anything for any
amount of time. Plus, I have never read
a book by Jacie Lennon. Let me say, I
have been missing out.
Ben is selling his couch, Pepper thought she had a place to
live. She did not but Ben has an empty
bedroom in his apartment. Can you see
where this is heading? I could. It was an easy storyline to follow and the
characters are fun and flirty. There
were a few twists and turns that kept me guessing at exactly what would be
happening next but mostly it went where I expected. This is not a bad thing. I loved the entire book, even the not so
steamy parts. They made the story more
real, no one’s life is all fun and sex.
There are jobs, friends, and real life to handle but Ben and Pepper
managed to handle everything thrown at them without losing focus on each other.
Jacie Lennon is an author that I will be looking for more
from. I would like to see what
characters she writes about next in Slow Burn.
There are many secondary characters that deserve and need their stories
told and their HEA’s found.
Jacie Lennon is a dental hygienist whose guilty pleasure is writing romance. She lives in Tennessee with her husband and kids.
