    • 4 Beastly Stars This is a business deal, Bianca A good one for both of us We re not doing favors for each other No one is getting taken advantage of here We re going into it with our eyes open, fully informed and consenting, with an exit strategy that s painless and precise Which is a hell of a lot than most people can say about their marriages To say that the first meeting between Bianca Hardwick and Jackson Boudreaux was a rocky one would be a huge understatement Who cares if he s the heir to [...]

    • For whatever reason I shelved this book as no thanks but no As my buddy Sigmund Freud said The great question that has never been answered and which I have not yet been able to answer, despite my 30 years of research into the feminine soul, is What does a woman want Well, I made a mistake, see, I m that honest and self critical.It s the second mistake I acknowledged making last year not reading this book and singing U Ur Hand by Pink in karaoke at a party with many kids blaming my 2nd best buddy [...]


    • The man gave the term resting bitch face a whole new meaning He looked like his face had caught on fire and someone had tried to put it out with a fork.Do you love BEAUTY AND THE BEAST retellings Need I even say at this point Probably not But I will This isn t your standard homage but there s enough similarities to tickle your fancy and enough differences to delight you In addition we have a hate to love slowburn and a fake marriage trope Throw in some New Orleans flavour like, a lot and a chee [...]

    • 4,5 stars, actually How can you create wonders with the common trope of enemies to lovers and fake relationship This book has a popular romance trope Enemies to lovers And as main characters, we have a grumpy and arrogant billionaire and a sweet and sassy Southern belle Then, a fake engagement Everything sounds clich , right It sounds like this book is no different from the many other similar romance books, right Well, surprisingly, this book is a perfect example of how a writer can use very com [...]


    • 3 StarsOverall Opinion This is a rough one for me to rate, tbh This had me engaged, but I wasn t really wowed by it I never fully felt the connection between the h and H, but I did feel connected with the characters individually which is kind of weird as it s usually no connection to any of it for me I liked their back stories, but I feel like their futures were left hanging in a way that it didn t help me feel that connection I also felt like some things felt unfinished There was things like th [...]


    • 4.5 starsI ve heard of JT Geissenger in my book feeds but now I realise what I ve been missing out by not reading her work BURN FOR YOU delighted my literary senses from start to finish The two main characters were both hugely likeable in their reality, completely lacking perfection, both stubborn and fun to observe clashing This book is a piece of wonderful hate to love with great story substance.Jackson is like a grisly bear, a pathetic communicator, preferring to shout or grunt He met his mat [...]


    • 4.5 stars1 2 cup of Slap,Slap,Kiss,1 3 cup of marriage of convenience,a dash of cliches,add a pinch of dirty talk and voila the perfect book for me P.S Jackson Boudreaux is mine


    • Oh my Jackson Boudreaux I could leave my review right there because really, who doesn t love a big, burly, scowling hero Dig a little deeper and you ll find that Bianca s mama was right Cr me brulee Hard as nails on the outside, but inside all soft and gooey sweet So yeah, I m absolutely heart over heels in love with Ms Geissinger s latest hero I have to say he s one of the most interesting male characters I ve ever read Absolutely alpha on the surface but with so much insecurity about his worth [...]


    • 4.5 Slap Slap kiss Stars Heir to the Boudreaux Bourbon empire, Jackson Boudreaux was a beast of a man that had a perpetual scowl on his face and would just as soon growl at you than not.Bianca is a beautiful Creole woman who has just opened a restaurant and based her menu off her recipes paired with Boudreaux Bourbon When Jackson shows up at her restaurant demanding a table, the sparks flew.Oh man, Jackson is one of my favorite types of Hero s He s got the whole wounded beast thing going on and [...]



    • The old romance trope where two total opposites fight like cats and dogs until they suddenly realize they re crazy about each otherwell, that s how the first encounter starts between a grumpy, broody, rude billionaire Jackson Boudreaux and Bianca Hardwick, Chef owner of a New Orleans restaurant.It s not even pretty but each of them hold their own, yet the sparks fly, even though they fight it, through out the relentless pent up bickeringWho was the real Jackson Boudreaux The Beast that snarled a [...]


    • ARC received for review4.25 stars It and I needs an epilogue Great storytale as old timeThis book hit so many emotions I laughed and I cried Jackson aka the Beast has a library He was so damaged yet he was able to open up to loving and being loved Bianca gives better than she gets I can t wait to try some of the recipes Ms Geissinger graciously included at the end of each chapter.One thing.r art peopleease read the book He needs a beard, and she needs cafe au lait color skin


    • I love Jackson Recommended for the safety gang Complete with wet dreams, hate to love vibes, and a secretly super caring hero.


    • 4 Hungry Stars J.T has that kind of writing style that I feel in my Romeo Julep, and by that I mean my heart, but yes that could be an innuendo Leave me alone Yes, it can But seriously, her writing style is poetic and pulls all the feels out of my Cheesecake Ugh, sorry I couldn t help it Let me explain If you haven t guessed yet, this book centers around food The heroine is a chef and includes the Bourbon that Jackson s family is famous for into her recipes When Jackson enters her restaurant, sh [...]


    • 4.5 StarsWhat a delightful contemporary retelling of the Beauty and the Beast Enemies to lovers is one of my favorite romance trope, and the author used it with great talent Burn For You is the unforgettable story of two indomitable characters whose love affair is absolutely enchanting It was a perfect, fun read that had me giggling and swooning simultaneously I loved everything about this book The characters were well written and their development, especially Jackson s, is fantastic The banter [...]


    • 4 3 4 Creme Brulee Stars I absolutely loved this one A dark and brooding H A sassy sweet h southern woman done right I loved them both No tstl moments, and some very engaging side characters that added to the story It was funny, full of heart, and though a bit of a slow burn, it was still very steamy I enjoyed this one a lot Happy reading


    • This was okay Some parts are fun, others are just too cliche for me to really enjoy especially the characters I received an ARC from the publisher


    • FOUR STARS I absolutely adored everything about this story Thank you for another amazing recommend, Sweet Anna Jackson was such a raging dick when he first met Bianca, and you all know me, I love my asshole heroes, so I was a gonner for him Bianca was a spitfire too, and never took his shit She was funny as hell too, and these two had amazing chemistry Such a slow burn until the finally came together, I thought I was going to die, but it was worth the wait These two were scorching hot My heart k [...]


    • J.T Geissinger is an author whose name and books have crossed my feed a fair bit, though I ve never gotten around to reading any of her works, so Burn for You is a fresh start for me And what an introduction it was.There can never be enough fairy tale retellings for me the raunchier the better, the funnier the cherished and the dirtier, the I fall to my knees in worship Geissinger s Burn For You fits all of these categories quite comfortably, so needless to say, I had a good time going through [...]


    • I adore a classic BB retelling, and this one definitely delivered Bianca was sassy and a lot of fun, and I loved Jackson s surly attitude It was easy to forgive him because we got his POV and it was obvious how sweet he was on Bianca, he just had major hang ups I love the first sour, then sweet heroes There were a handful of things all random and mostly personal preferences that I didn t love, which is why this is 4 instead of 5 stars but I m really looking forward to from this author Especiall [...]
