Have you ever read a book so good that it took over your thoughts and you were counting the minutes until you could get back to it?  Beneath the Burn was that book for me.  I was ensnared by this story from the beginning and life kept getting in the way of me sitting down and devouring it in one gulp; it was torture!  

I can't wrap my mind around why Beneath the Burn was so good, it just struck a chord within me and resonated.  The writing was exquisite, the characters were amazing and the story will melt your heart.  I loved this book.  It was dark, twisted, soulful, powerful, hopeful and breathtaking.  

The subject matter is dark but the message is so beautiful that I was caught tearing up several times and then full out ugly crying at points.  It is also sweet, poignant and will pull at your inner romantic side, while at some points making you laugh.  Beneath the Burn is a rare book that you shock yourself with how much you love it, when part of your brain thinks you are nuts for enjoying it so much.

Jay and Charliee.  I can't even.  These two characters were so well written that I am having a very hard time letting them go and starting a new book,  I'm not ready to start meeting new characters yet.  The story is well done and a complete book but I want more from these two (please, please Pam Godwin, I need more from them).  

Beneath the Burn is a book you MUST read, I am afraid to start talking about the story and over-sharing or spoiling the ride for you, just trust me you want to read this.  

Pam Godwin knocked this out of the park!  Three days later and I am still talking about this book to my husband and going back and re-reading parts of the book on my Kindle just to relive this amazing story (I NEVER do this).  

I am going to say it; Beneath the Burn is my favorite read of 2013.  I know!  I have read MANY good books this year but Jay and Charliee just completely melted my heart and left me craving more.  Pam Godwin, I can not wait to see what you write next!! 

I love this book so much that I will buy the first three people, who leave a blog comment that they want to read this book, a Kindle copy.  Yeah, it is that good.  Enjoy Jay and Charliee; let me know if this makes your best books of 2013 list!

Buy this Book:

A woman with a white-blonde pixie haircut backed out of the shop and dammit if he couldn’t stop himself from gawking. She was slender, but not in a bones-pressing-skin kind of way. She had a figure that could only be toned with good nutrition and rigorous activity. Oh yeah, she was built for stamina. 
She locked the door, and turned toward him, tipping back her head.
The bluest eyes he’d ever seen stared up at him. They were ringed with navy and glimmered with silver flecks. They were also wide with...fear? No, that couldn’t be it if her smile were anything to go by. Her beautiful face seemed to swallow up the glow of the streetlamps, the passing headlights, the goddamned moon.
“Hi.” Her smile wavered. “You look lost. Can I help?”
Oh Christ, her voice. It was the complete package, like the full-bodied Fsus2 chord humming from the hole in his Martin Acoustic. Gentle, cool, hypnotic—
“You’re lost, right?”
She had no idea. “Just found what I’m looking for.” Smooth, Jay. What the hell was he doing?
