After years of running, Quinn has finally found a town to settle down in while she searches for the man who tore her life apart. Despite her every intention not to, she’s started to put down some roots and make friends. However, the small bit of solace she’s found is quickly shattered when a group of vampires walk into the bar where she works and turn her life upside down.
Looking only to stop for a few nights and have a good time, Julian never expected to stumble across someone like Quinn. Determined to keep her free from the vampires looking to use her as a weapon, Julian is stunned to discover himself starting to care for the mysterious woman with a dark past she’s unwilling to reveal. It doesn’t take him long to realize that the vampires after her are only a part of the problem. This quiet little town is hiding a violent secret of its own; a secret that not only threatens the town, but Quinn in particular.

At A Glance
Another average vampire read.
I liked the plot and storyline. Quinn was made into a vampire in the worst possible way. Because of her background her unique powers could be used as a weapon and Julian will do anything to protect Quinn and his friends from the evil trying to be released onto the world. Yes, cliché, but still exciting in some ways. I love when vampires have special powers, and Quinn’s was extra creeptastic. Julian was all sorts of cocky and I loved that. I like how he slowly helped Quinn open up, no matter how much she tried to resist. I wish they had more time to create a connection.
I feel like I’m doing this to myself. I keep picking up average reads and I don’t know why. In my gut I know they’re going to be average, but I keep picking them up. It’s like I’m sabotaging myself. Anyway, yeah, Frost Burn is no different. I enjoyed it while reading but there is nothing special here that will bring me back for more.
The fight scenes were lackluster, the romance was almost nonexistent, and there was too much downtime. They just kept waiting for the bad guys to come and kill them. I hate that! Take some action and go after them first!
For the life of me I cannot remember a sex scene and it’s only been a few days since reading this book. There is a lot of flirting and hot kissing, but I’m 99% sure there is no sex which is weird for a paranormal romance. If there was sex, it’s not a good sign that I can’t remember it because my memory is freaking awesome.
I am so over average reads. I kind of enjoyed myself while reading but I felt nothing after the fact and that’s just depressing. I want to mention that most people loved this book on Goodreads. I’m not in a reading slump, but I am finding it hard to connect with a book lately. I need something amazing, STAT. Not really recommended.
“His eyes actually sparkled as he flashed her a smile that revealed his perfectly even, white teeth. She imagined his smile had disarmed many women around the world; she scowled back at him. His grin only widened. He dropped his arms to his side and came at her with a mesmerizing grace. She shifted defensively and gripped her stake tighter.”
“Are you going to double dog dare me next?” she scoffed. “Triple dog dare.” “For someone who was alive when Columbus set sail you have the maturity level of a teenager,” she retorted.”
