The realization that Jax still affected me so strongly was a jagged pill to swallow. He'd only been part of my life for five short weeks two years ago. But now he was back. Walking into a deal I'd worked hard to close. And God, he was magnificent. His eyes were a brown so dark they were nearly black. Thickly lashed, they were relentless in their intensity. Had I really thought they were soft and warm? There was nothing soft about Jackson Rutledge. He was a hard and jaded man, cut from a ruthless cloth.… (mere)

I really enjoyed this book a bit short but I liked the characters. ( )

I've already read and loved Sylvia's Crossfire Series, and if I like an author, I try to read all of their books. So I had to read this one, of course.


My first and probably only complain about Afterburn is that it was too short. And it ended with a cliffhanger. Thank goodness I had already borrowed the book two, or I'd have been cursing the author right about now.


Afterburn was steamy, heartbreaking and hooking. I did not want to stop reading once I started.


I loved the characters, I loved the setting, and I'm glad I decided to read it.


On to the next book now! Aftershock, here I come! ( )

Having read a number of Sylvia Day's books by now, I am used to her writing style and the way she captures you quickly. I wasn't ready though for the fact that I got to the end of the book so quickly and I want more. Reading on a kindle has that effect sometimes; with an actual book you know when you're nearing the end but not with an eReader. I was so engrossed in the story and WHAT - HEY NO, I'm not ready for it to end yet. Looking forward to Aftershock. Love Gia, Love Jax - another hit series. ( )

"Red-Hot" is right. Afterburn is a scorcher! I love all of Ms. Day's work, that I've read so far, and I was definitely intrigued by the description of Afterburn so I decided to try it out. Afterburn is part one of a two part story that revolves around the lives and relationship of Jackson "Jax" Rutledge and Gianna "Gia" Rossi. She may not have heard from him in two years but she is painfully aware the minute he walks into the same room with her. Once Gia realizes there is no escaping Jax she refuses to give him her all again without anything in return. She will either have a benefit only relationship, or force him to give just as much of himself as she once had. Their professional relationship keeps colliding with their personal one, and his background and family continues to prove that she does not belong in his world. Gia is anything but a push over, she may have once fell victim to her heart but she is going to fight like hell to make sure she is not the only falling this time.

I love the way Sylvia Day transforms Gia from beginning to end. At first I felt her pain and then "Hello! Where did this kick ass heroine come from?" Gia has all of these high-rolling, wealthy characters playing ping pong around her and she decides to take charge and straighten everything out her way. All the while, Jax is trying to fight his real feelings for her, and the world he was born into. You get a glimpse of their past, but Ms. Day alludes to more complicated story than even some of the characters know.

This may be a short read but it is quite simply an amazing one. The dynamic of the Rossi family is something I look forward to reading more about in the future and I would love to get my hands on the back story of Lei and Ian. As for Gia and Jax, their story is due to continue in November with Aftershock. I have a feeling Gia is going to give Jax the ride of his life and steal his heart in one feel swoop. Afterburn is definitely up to par with some of Ms. Day's best work and I truly hope she continues with the stories of the secondary characters :)

Happy Reading! ( )
