Review: Burn (Dark in You #1) by Suzanne Wright

*****5 Stars*****

This isn't just good, it's epically good! Oooh I love a good paranormal romance with some raunchiness thrown in! As to be expected from Suzanne Wright, this book is scorching in it's sexiness but it's also witty and very funny in parts. I love how she incorporates both of these things, and she does it really bloody well!
This story was very different for me, I'm a big fan of paranormal romance but one species in particular that I've not encountered often, or at least not as the main species in a story, is demons. I was excited to read something new to me and fresh, a whole new world of paranormal to discover.
The heroine of this story, Harper, was raised by her grandmother and her wayward father Lucien, having been abandoned by her mother as an infant. She travelled a lot as a child, moving from place to place with her father, often feeling like the adult in the equation, and as such she has grown up to be a fiercely independent woman, she takes no crap from anyone and she is one feisty chick.
Knox is an extremely powerful demon, he's the Prime of his lair and owns a whole load of hotels in Vegas so he's mega rich too. He's domineering, intense, a little scary sometimes, but he's so effing hot! Knox sees Harper from his upper level office window whilst looking down on his underground club exclusively for demon, he HAS to meet her. And so it begins...
These two are an unlikely pairing due to Knox's utter need for control in all things in his life and Harper's stead fast refusal to be bossed around by anyone, this recipe makes for some laugh out loud moments. I adored these characters, and the other characters in this book too. I am so excited at the prospect of some of the other characters in this book coming to forefront and having their own stories. The hellhound Tanner and the hellcat Devon will make for an interesting pairing! Make it happen Suzanne Wright! Pretty please!! I can see that being a hilariously entertaining read.
Suzanne Wright writes excellent paranormal that I think can be enjoyed even by those relatively new to the genre. Even if you've not read a lot of paranormal or are not sure if it's your thing and are looking for that perfect book to get you into the genre, try Suzanne Wright! Her witty characters and their steamy chemistry will carry it through for you, and you may just find yourself a whole new world of books to discover and enjoy! For fans of paranormal who haven't yet discovered this author, what are you waiting for?! She's a must read author! Five mega stars for this one, I thoroughly enjoyed it and cannot wait for more!!

Part of a small demon lair in North Las Vegas, tattooist Harper Wallis lives a pretty simple life. That changes overnight when she discovers that her psychic mate, or ‘anchor’, is a guy who’s rumored to be the most powerful demon in existence. Compelling, full of secrets and armed with raw sexuality, Knox Thorne is determined to claim her as his anchor, creating a psychic bond that will prevent their inner demons from ever turning rogue. The billionaire also wants Harper in his bed. She’s not so sure she wants either of those things. No one seems to know what breed of demon Knox is, only that he’s more dangerous than anything she’s ever before encountered. But he refuses to walk away. And when an unknown danger starts closing in on Harper, it seems that Knox is the only one who can keep her safe.

As Prime of his Las Vegas lair and a successful businessman, Knox Thorne is used to being in control. He’s also used to people fearing and obeying him. Harper does neither, which unexpectedly amuses him. Unpredictable, elusive, and complex, she draws Knox and his inner demon like nothing ever has. Knox is used to getting what he wants, and he wants Harper. He’ll have her, and he’ll keep her safe from the threat that looms over her. Because Knox protects what’s his. He won’t allow anyone to take her from him. Even if it will mean letting the demon inside him rise and wreak the havoc it was created to make.
