Summary

Hawk Red Cloud lives by his own set of rules: Don't let them share the saddle, don't bring them home, and never spend the night. So far he's managed to avoid commitment like the plague.

Tildy Fletcher's parents set rules for her. She would never think of breaking them; she knows all too well what would happen if she did.

Hawk and Tildy are from two different worlds, but there's no denying the attraction between them. The rules are designed to keep them apart. Will they be willing to break them for a chance at true love?

Contains mature themes.

ANOTHER GREAT BURNOUT EPISODE

Another great episode of these ex Rangers come mechanics & this episode it's Hawk Red Cloud's turn to find the woman who's going to be his & Matilda 'Tildy' Fletcher who IS his COMPLETE OPPOSITE. She's quiet, from the other side of town & lets herself be dictated to.
But then we're feeling that same apprehension that we felt when Sarah was kidnapped, in SHOOTER.
But it's NOT JUST that, the ending isn't just about these 2....

A modern day love story

This is the third book in the Burnout series that I have listened to and I am looking forward to hearing the next one. I rarely give four stars, however this story was so enjoyable and I am officially hooked.

The fact that Hawk is a Native American was different and interesting. I love tildy's approach to life and her personality. Although this story may have been told many times before, the twists and turns make for a great listen.

Mason Lloyd's ability to do male and female voices is stunning, to be honest I simply forgot that it's only one vocal talent doing all of the different characters... simply amazing.

I'm going to get the next one in the series... woo hoo ;-)

SADLY THIS SERIES HAS FIZZLED & BURNT OUT FOR ME

Writing a review for a book that's just been an 'ok' lukewarm listen is so difficult - there were parts I liked and parts I didn't.... but sadly, there were no parts that wowed me. Hawk is a handsome 'one an done' alpha Sioux hero and he's happy that way until a tiny naive virgin called Tildy slowly penetrates his carefully erected walls. Tildy comes from wealth and arranged marriages and never questioned, disrespected or broke any of the rules or demands that her controlling parents forced on her... it was just the expected way of things. However, when her path crossed with Hawk's and her cherished talisman broke, Tildy was speechless and in awe as she saw it as a sign that she was going to marry this huge handsome drool-worthy man. But Hawk wasn't then, or ever was going to be, on or in the market for love.

So, chapter after chapter, Hawk pushes Tildy away and she became a bit of a pitiful character as the group of ex Rangers/best buds would talk and sympathize with Hawk over her misguided assumptions. But that all changed when Tildy started to be hurt, threatened and eventually kidnapped because everyone could clearly see that Hawk really cared.... well everyone except Hawk of course who continued to 'friend zone her'. Tildy went on with her life... following orders, getting engaged to a man who really didn't care and being the dutiful daughter... but she dreamt, hoped for more and grasped what she could.

It was hard to squeeze any romance out of this listen when the Hero was always shunning the Heroine - oh it was obvious he cared but just not enough to change or do anything about it. Even when they did eventually 'get it on' it was him doing her this huge favor... and still he coldly turned his back away from her. There was also a time when Hawk tried to forget Tildy which really didn't sit well with me and he sank even further down my mental list of hot heroes.... before slipping off it completely. The last few chapters is where all the acceptance, claiming and HEA's are.... but sadly by this time I really wasn't bothered whether they got together or not. Dual POV's and the narration was good.

Worth a credit? Who knows why books are praised by some and dismissed by others.... so all I can say is that unfortunately this listen, and it's characters, just didn't captivate me, wow me or give me that warm satisfied feeling as others have. This series started off so well and with lots of potential but now, after this and the previous book, I realize that the Burnout series is sadly not the right fit for me... but we're all different and you may see gold where I only see bronze.

Good Girl! Bad Boy Biker! The Perfect Match!


Another Awesome, Exciting, Suspenseful story in the Burnout series! Full of Drama, and Sexual Tension with a plot that's more comparable to the first story in the series! The best part; this story builds on the two previous stories, and has a strong presence of the entire Burnout crew and plenty of their joking and banter. I love this series and characters!

Some spoilers/teasers:
The huge and sexy Hawk Red Cloud does not do second dates or even sleeps with the same women twice……well most times, and that's just how he likes it. He's polite, and kind to women, but he's not looking for a long time commitment. His inability to commit to any long-term relationship is due to deep rooted reasons.

Hawk runs into the sweet and innocent Tildy at a convenient store, and offers to assist her when her car brakes down in the parking lot. He's the perfect gentleman, calls in a tow truck, and takes her to the Burnout mechanic shop where Shooter looks over the car and orders the part. Hawk's definitely interested in a one night stand and invites her to Maria's. However, he soon changes his mind when he learns she may not be playing with a "full deck." He may have changed his mind about bedding her but after learning more about her, he definitely wants to be a real friend to her.

Tildy is the perfect rich daughter….. well at least she tries. She's learned to never argue, do as she is told, and accept what her parents want for her. This is how she has always been until the faithful day she meets Hawk and receives a "sign" they are meant to be together. Since meeting Hawk, Tildy slowly learns to go after what she wants; however, trouble soon follows her, and Hawk starts to see red.

While Hawk and Tildy's relationship is the main plot, there is a heart wrenching subplot with Shooter and Slick.

I recommend this series even with it's ups and downs. No character is perfect, they all have their flaws but each are lovable in their own way. Looking forward to Easy's story!

Great third book -- A Great Story of Opposites

Matilda (Tilde) is a great character. In this story, Tilde is a daughter of rich abusive parents. She runs into Hawk and then the attraction sparks fly. This is a classic romance story. A welcome return to the first novel general themes. This novel will appeal to classic romance followers who like a redemption story.

I like the way West writes. She has a tendency to go over the top on occasion, but she has reigned herself in this novel. Looking back, I say listen to novel one, listen to the first two hours of two and the last hour of two and then listen to this one.

Hawk falls for sweet Tildie

Big bad Hawk meets his match in innocent Tildie. This is the sweetest story in the series. Definitely worth the time and price.
Lloyd does a decent enough job of narration, but I would appreciate a female voice for the female characters.

perfectly imperfect

First, let me say that I didn't object to the last book as many as some but this one was definitely better. Hawk is by no means a “perfect’' hero but I think that's part of what made him better. At the end of the day, he was a good guy with some pretty weighty fears holding him back from reaching out for what he wants. Tildy was just the right heroine for him. She suffered her own fears, and with good reason. And though her circumstances may have led to her naivete and inexperience, she ultimately didn't let that get in the way of her keeping an open heart and ultimately choosing to be brave enough to go after what she wanted too. There were definitely some misunderstandings and bumps in the road along the way to their HEA but isn't that how it is in real life too?

Good Book

Book one is still my favorite. I did like this book better then book 2 but there were some parts that turn me off and some parts I loved.

Now in book one and book 2 I found Hawk very sexy. Though there was something he did in this book that would of like for me to take away his manhood. I still liked him all in all. He was a very sexy guy most of the time and knew how to charm the women. I also loved the fact that he had a very protective attitude about him.

I know one part of this book referred to Tiley has a strong woman but I found her pretty weak. That did not mean I liked her just found her innocents and weakness a little to much. I did like the moment she found some backbone and I think it was Hawk and his friends that helped her find this backbone.

I did not like Garrett at all. But I guess that was the whole point of the story was to not like Garrett...LOL Garrett got what he deserved and I am happy about that but I do think the author did show in the story that Prison can change and harden a person. Garrett has sure changed.

I live the brotherhood between Hawk and his friends. I also loved the sisterhood that Slick, Vegas, and Tiley had formed. It makes the story very touching. When Hawk and Tiley truly needed them they were there. Though I do wish Tex would of punched Hawks face over the alley scene. Hey, the part I hated the most.

Would I recommend book 1, 2, & 3.? Yes I would. Though this book can be read as a standalone, it does help to know the other characters and the struggles they went through if you have already read books one and two. I did do the audio in this book and thought the narrator did an good job.

Loved it!

Narration was flawless, I loved the storyline. The only thing that littler bothers me that the female characters in the series are weak.

No More Wimpy Females

This could've been a good story except the female lead was written as a scared, wimpy, stupid girl. She's 22 and acts like she's 12. Emotionally abused or not, no 22 year old young woman can be that naive and dumb about so much, half of which is common sense. I truly wish these good authors would start writing the female leads with more gumption and brains. Hawk's character isn't bad- he's a manwhore of course in the beginning. But he's got some depth to him. Mason Lloyd's performance was good. I like his deep voice.
