Book Summary

Beth Davenport has no interest in getting involved with another man for the foreseeable future. To say her last relationship ended in disaster would be a colossal understatement. The only reason she agrees to put in an appearance at Serpent’s Kiss, a private kink club in downtown St. Louis, is because her best friend, Nicole, won’t quit nagging her. When she walks in the door that night, the last thing she expects to do is meet a man who will have her reconsidering her ban on men.

As a captain with the St. Louis Fire Department, Drew Parker is used to being in charge. His crew relies on him to make sure they know what they’re doing and return home to their families after every shift. It isn’t, however, what he wants in a relationship. Drew decides to join Serpent’s Kiss to see if what appeals to him in fantasy is something he wants to explore in the real world. He’s also hoping that he’ll be lucky enough to meet a woman with whom he can explore his desires. The night Beth walks into the club, he is intrigued. Drew has to get to know her better.

After what happened to her, Beth is reluctant to get involved with Drew. It doesn’t matter that he is sweet and charming. She’s been burned before and Beth doesn’t think she can survive having her heart crushed again. Drew, however, won’t take no for an answer. He wants a relationship and is determined to chip away at her defenses until she relents. Will she give him a chance, or did her ex leave her with scars too deep to heal?


She plunged her tongue inside his mouth and took what she wanted. It was the hottest thing Drew could ever remember experiencing in his life.
The kiss didn’t last more than a minute or two, but it was long enough for him to know he wanted more.
Beth rested her forehead against his. She was breathing just as hard as he was. Her chest was heaving up and down, brushing against his chest. Not to mention that she was still straddling his lap.
“Please tell me you want to do that again.”
She laughed. It was so nice to see her happy and carefree.
“Is that a yes?”
“Don’t get cocky on me now.” She ran a single finger down the side of his face and over his lower lip.
He closed his eyes, trying not to push.
“Open your eyes,” she whispered.
When he met her gaze, he noticed the amusement was gone. He was instantly on alert. “What’s wrong?”
Beth shook her head. “Nothing’s wrong. I’m just . . . considering my options.”
“Options about what?”
“Oh.” He wasn’t sure he liked the fact that thinking over her options had banished the fun they’d be having.
Before he could formulate another question, she explained. “Things between us are moving faster than I thought they would.”
“Is that bad?” He needed to know. In his opinion, things between them weren’t moving fast enough.
She sighed. But Drew also noted that she hadn’t removed herself from his lap. That was good, wasn’t it?
“I don’t know. Maybe. Maybe not.”

Author Bio

Sherri spent most of her childhood detesting English class. It was one of her least favorite subjects because she never seemed to fit into the standard mold. She wasn't good at spelling, or following grammar rules, and outlines made her head spin. For that reason, Sherri never imagined becoming an author.
At the age of thirty, all of that changed. After getting frustrated with the direction a television show was taking two of its characters, Sherri decided to try her hand at writing an alternate ending, and give the characters their happily ever after. By the time the story finished, it was one of the top ten read stories on the site, and her readers were encouraging her to write more.

Nearly eight years later, Sherri is the author of eight full-length novels, and two short stories. Writing has become a creative outlet that allows her to explore a wide range of emotions, while having fun taking her characters through all the twists and turns she can create.

My Burning For Her Kiss Review...

It has been awhile since I read a BDSM book with a female Domme which I loved especially because right not where I live there is someone trying to ban the watching of Fifty Shades of Grey which irks me because of the pure and utter ignorance of this lifestyle.   So, in light of this ignorance where BDSM is NOT a negative thing but a lifestyle or personal yearning for them.  In this book we have Beth the femdom who has had her trust extremely broken which has made her put up some serious walls.

We also have sexy Fire captain Drew, who's in his late twenties and just coming to terms with his submissive inklings.  As Drew starts to explore this world through the sex club Serpent's Kiss he comes across Lady Beth.  He's forewarned that she will be a lot of work with her being hurt but he's up for the task.  Drew's not just looking for a dominant but also a relationship.

Because of Beth's trust issue she is very reluctant to let Drew befriend her which for me caused this beginning of the book to move very slow and was filled with a lot of information and details but not a lot of oomph.  As Beth lets her guard down the story starts to get more momentum.
"Love takes as long as it takes."  Katrina shrugged.  "It isn't always practical. I learned that the hard way."
Even though it did pick up some momentum it still felt like it was a really slow book filled with a LOT of details that I don't know that helped or hinder to build the characters.  It felt like this book could have been done quicker and more efficient as it may lose some people's attention spans.

I did like the book, it had some good moments, sexually repetitive a bit,  some what anti-climatic and slow as a whole.   Even though this review sounds more negative then not, it was still well written and there was nothing wrong with the characters that I found fault in, like I usually do as of late.  So it all in all it was good just slow.

3 Not as much Burning Thumbs up!
