Tears, tears and more tears. Emma Renshaw hit me in the emotional feels with this third book in the Burn series.
We return to Hawk Valley where one night changes the lives of an entire town and even though this is the third time I’ve experienced the bonfire, I was crying by the end of it.
Emma Renshaw knows how to turn something old into something new and make it even more emotional each time I relive it.
Adeline and Foster had very different experiences growing up. Foster is known as the golden boy in Hawk Valley, the son of the Mayor, he has expectations thrust upon him to follow in his father’s footsteps. The night of the bonfire changes his outlook in life and the course of his life. As much as he doesn’t regret making his own life choices, he does wish he wasn’t thrust into his father’s spotlight when it served his purposes.
Adeline grew up in poverty, fearful everyday how her father would react as he lost himself to drinking. The night of the bonfire she lost her entire world and years later she’s still lost in a cycle of grief. Years pass and she hasn’t gone anywhere, stuck in the hometown that took her family, but still dreaming of what could be if she had the courage to take chances. Her snowglobe collection is the closest she comes to dreaming, until she receives news that changes her entire life.
These two souls may have come from different worlds, but they are also more alike than they even realize when they first meet up. Opposite sides of the same coin. Looking for acceptance and love regardless of their background or life circumstances. It may have taken twelve years for them to finally speak to one another again, but once they do their connection is electric and they both help one another regain something they thought they could never have.
Adeline and Foster brought me to tears so many times, I was a total mess by the time I finally came to the end. Inferno is by far Emma’s most emotional book in this series. It can be read as a complete standalone.
From Emma Renshaw, author of the Vow series, comes a new small town, enemies-to-lovers romance about a firefighter who walked away from his past and a woman who lost everything. This is the third book in the Burn series.
