When bodyguard Ryan Harris finds an intruder in his apartment, he’s shocked to realize it’s Isabel Rodriguez. Naked. In his shower. He’s only met Isabel a few times, but he’s seen enough to be distracted and unnerved by how gorgeous she is wet and two feet away from him. And did he mention naked? But Isabel insists her name is Julia. It’s either a con or a case of amnesia. Either way, he can’t lay a hand on her… or can he? The rules have never stopped him before and they’re not about to now.
Isabel doesn’t know how she got into her Ryan’s apartment, or why she knows him. She only knows that she feels safe in his presence. Not to mention very sexy given the way he looks at her. Determined to be underneath that rock solid body, she can’t seem to keep her clothes on around him, even when he tries to resist. When Ryan gives in to the sexual tension between them, there will be no forgetting this steamy night of passion.
No one knows why she’s lost her memory, but she can ignore the uncomfortable reality when she’s protected by Ryan and his hot-blooded strength. But when her memories come crashing back in, will the waves drown out Ryan’s deepening feelings for her?
For fans of hot alpha heroes, bestselling author Erin McCarthy introduces her new series, SOUTH BEACH BODYGUARDS. In a city synonymous with sexy, the hot men of Miami Security will always protect your back with very personal one-on-one attention…
Burn by Erin McCarthy
A great start to a new series!! Ryan works for his dad in the security business and if it wasn't for that, Ryan wouldn't even talk to his dad. Ryan comes home from work one day to find his stepsister, Isabel, using his shower, calling herself Julia. Isabel was found unconscious with a head injury and taken to Ryan for protection until Ryan's dad could figure out if she is in danger from some of his less than legal business dealings or not. Isabel has always been quiet and reserved, she has also been nursing a year long crush on Ryan, the knock to the head has helped make her bold and opens Ryan's eyes to look at her in a more sexual manner. Ryan and Isabel try to come to terms with their suddenly changing relationship and deepening feelings for each other while also dealing with the danger that seems to surround Isabel. There was a lot of emotional angst in this book, Ryan is dealing with abandonment issues and the fact that his dad is a jerk and while Isabel is almost too sheltered, she still understood what was going though Ryan's head most the time. I can't wait to see what happens next!!
A great start to Erin McCarthy's new hot series
Burn is the first book in Erin McCarthy's South Beach Bodyguards series, and it definitely was one hot quick book to read. The first chapter alone in Burn will have you like 'whoa' because of the characters.
Ryan Harris is a bodyguard who is about to take on a difficult job. He has to protect his former stepsister and from the moment he sees her other side, he knows he'll have a hard time keeping his hands to himself. Isabel Rodriguez is Ryan's former step-sister and she's in danger for some reason. She ends up getting knocked out and not remembering who did it. She's forced to stay with Ryan because of the danger still out there. From the moment these two end up together, Isabel is already naked and Ryan is having to protect not only Isabel from whoever hurt her, but from himself as well.
Erin McCarthy definitely wrote one scorcher, when she wrote Burn. I was a little put off at first due to characters being former stepchildren, but how they were each other definitely helped. I could tell immediately that these two wouldn't get together quickly due to how Ryan was and how timid Isabel was, when she was sober. Don't let the timid girl fool you though because Isabel has a whole another side and it comes out in the beginning of the story. Holy crap! That girl definitely was not timid in the beginning and Ryan was a gentleman, when it came to the first encounter with Isabel.
The drama in the story tended to be in the back burner until the very end of the book. The story more followed along with Ryan's dilemma with Isabel and Isabel trying everything to get Ryan to see her more than a former stepsister. Ryan got on my nerves a bit in the story with the back and forth. I liked Isabel though, she was determined more than ever.
I give this book 4 stars and look forward to diving into the next book in the series. If you're looking for a hot quick book for the winter, you should definitely purchase Burn to read. :)
Easy fun read!
Burn the first in the new South Beach Bodyguard series by Erin McCarthy opens up with quite the hook- Ryan comes home from work and to an intruder in his home- his step-sister, Isabel fully NEKKID taking a shower! Burn's opening was fully entertaining and quickly grabbed my attention! The rest of the story delivers an easy, yet somewhat slow-paced but fun read of smoking hot Ryan stepping up to unravel the mystery surrounding Isabel's amnesia- was it from a fall down the stairs or was it a planned attack? Ryan is determined to learn the truth and keep Isabel safe. In turn having a smexy alpha male going all possessive & protective on you how can one blame Isabel when lust & want ensues?! Erin delightfully carries the reader along in the slow build-up of their relationship and introducing easily like-able side characters along the way to set up for future books to come. All in all I enjoyed Burn and am looking forward to the next in line!
