REVIEW: Burn For You by J.T. Geissinger


It's been a while since I've read a J.T. Geissinger novel and after reading Burn For You, I'm asking myself why. This novel, a fun take on Beauty and the Beast, is based in New Orleans (you know I love that!), has lots of humorous banter and inner monologues, and an obvious chemistry between the two main characters. 

Because it was so entertaining, I flew through the pages in a matter of hours. I remember looking down at one point being surprised at how far along I was. I happened to be reading a much heavier, psychological novel at the same time as I was reading this and Burn For You provided a much needed reprieve from the heart heavy novel that I was also reading. That's not to say that Burn For You didn't have it's more serious moments, because it did and they worked well within the framework of what was happening, but overall the sheer grumpy sunshine of it all really shined. 



Jackson “The Beast” Boudreaux is rich, gorgeous, and unbelievably rude to the staff at Chef Bianca Hardwick’s New Orleans restaurant. Bianca would sooner douse herself in hot sauce than cook for Jackson again, but when he asks her to cater his fund-raiser, Bianca can’t refuse, knowing the cash will help pay her mother’s medical bills. Then Jackson makes another outrageous request: Marry me. The unconventional offer includes an enormous sum—money Bianca desperately needs, even if it does come with a contract—and a stunning ring.

The heir to a family bourbon dynasty, Jackson knows the rumors swirling around him. The truth is even darker. Still, he needs a wife to secure his inheritance, and free-spirited, sassy Bianca would play the part beautifully. Soon, though, their simple business deal evolves into an emotional intimacy he’s built walls to avoid.

As the passion heats up between them, Bianca and Jackson struggle to define which feelings are real and which are for show. Is falling for your fake fianc√© the best happy ending…or a recipe for disaster?
