Summary

Eli was only seven years old when he had been given to monsters.

Sixteen years later he finally gets the chance for revenge, and with his enhanced abilities changing, nothing and no one is going to stop him, especially a new partner who seems to see right through the black holes in his soul.

Agent Daniel Connelly left Washington trying to keep his sanity, but the images of the innocent victims are still haunting him and knows the horror in Eli's eyes is exactly what he is trying to forget.

Everybody Burns is a story about two men falling in love. Except one doesn't think he is capable of it...and the other doesn't think he deserves it.

Finally got to Eli...

He's been part of every book but you didn't know him well. Author did a great job of teasing us with just enough information about this reclusive, quiet, intense team member.
Maybe too good. My only issue was that the Eli I've had snippets of didn't turn out to be as "big" as the teasing made him. Oh, he was interesting and disturbed and had huge issues. But in his own book, he came across like all the other members of the team, another tortured soul.

I didn’t think this story could get any better.

When I read and reviewed Everybody Burns back in June of 2020, I absolutely loved it. When I started listening to the audiobook a couple of days ago (Feb. 2021) I didn’t see how I could like the story any more than I already did. Boy was I wrong.

Iggy Toma’s voice was a perfect fit for this book. I know some people might be disappointed that there was a change in narrator for this one but please don’t let that keep you from giving this book a chance. I’m also a huge fan of the other narrator so loving Iggy Toma’s performance is in no way a slam on NJR.

It’s kind of rare for the audio of a book I’ve already read to move me emotionally as much as when I read it. Iggy Toma managed to do that and in more than one place I had tears running down my face.

Below are my notes from when I reviewed the ebook.

Eli had an absolutely horrifying childhood. He was abused in the foster home where he was placed and then placed in hospitals that no child should ever have been placed in. All of this caused him difficulty with personal relationships as an adult.

Daniel left his job with the FBI in D.C. because he just couldn't stand working with child pornographers and traffickers any longer. The things he and his fellow agents had to do to catch the bad guys were pretty awful and he had to get away from it.

When Daniel and Eli are partnered up in the HERO (Human Enhanced Rescue Organization) unit things don't go so well. It's obvious to Daniel that Eli doesn't want anything to do with him. But then they get assigned a case that has to do with Eli's childhood and Eli ends up needing a place to stay. Daniel has room so he insists that Eli stay with him.

There are so many feelings that this story brought out in me. Anger and sorrow for what Eli went through, and is still going through. I was on pins and needles at several points waiting to see how a particular scene was going to play out.

Eli is such a special character in this series and Victoria Sue has written a wonderful story for him, with so much depth and feeling – and the HEA that Eli deserved.
