Sunny Shelly’s Review: Slow Burn by Jessica Prince

Title: Slow Burn
Author: Jessica Prince
Series: Redemption

Contemporary Romance, Small Town, Single Dad, Nanny, Virgin Heroine

When she started on the path to her new life, she never could have guessed where it would lead her.

Deva Kent spent most of her life dreaming of escaping. She hated being forced to live among the Fellowship of the Enlightened, the small community closed off from the rest of the world, and was desperate to spread her wings and discover something new. When she applied to be a nanny for a single father and his two-year-old son, the Fellowship wasn’t happy, but she knew that was her fresh start. However, she never thought she’d end up falling for the man with more baggage than he could carry and storm clouds in his eyes.

Laeth Harker’s world fell off its axis the morning a past one-night-stand showed up on his doorstep with a son he knew nothing about in tow. He barely had his own life together and didn’t know the first thing about caring for a child. But after spending most of his life screwing everything up, he was determined to do right by his own flesh and blood. He just didn’t know where to start.

When Laeth hired Deva on as his son’s nanny, she was supposed to make his life easier. But the way he felt about her was the very definition of complicated.

Their feelings might have started off at a slow burn, but once it catches, it’s hot enough to set the world on fire.

**The Redemption series is a series of interconnected, standalone, small town romances.**

Sunny Shelly’s Review: 5 Stars

Another great addition to the Redemption series!’

Reading Deva and Laeth’s story made me think of what it would be like for sheltered Jana Duggar to be hired as the nanny for a hot single dad! Deva led such a sheltered life up on that mountain with the Fellowship community, but she had so much spunk and moxie despite her upbringing. She was strong and secure and had so much common sense despite her insecurities and not knowing anything about social norms.

Laeth’s life was turned upside down when a former one-night stand showed up at his door with a toddler and handed Cash over for him to raise. Still tormented from his time in the Army, Laeth had been living his life with a series of one-night stands while drowning his demons in booze. Now, he has a son to protect and live his life for. And it’s not long before Cash’s nanny also claims a place in his heart.

This slow-burn story captivated me from the start and I read it in a day. Deva and Laeth are perfectly matched; she calms him and he introduced her to a world she was just itching to be a part of. I thought Jessica Prince did a great job of writing all of Deva’s “firsts” — not just romantically, but her first time drinking coffee, driving a car, and being in the library… it was so well done! There is a real sense of made family among Deva and the people she meets in Redemption, like her friendship with Lyric the librarian, and Poppy and Farrah. I loved seeing another side to Bennett, and how Myra “adopted” Deva and saved her from a life of hell.

Slow Burn was a wonderful story to get lost in!

I received an advanced copy and voluntarily left a review.

Born and raised around Houston Texas, Jessica spent most of her life complaining about the heat, humidity, and all around pain in the ass weather. It was only as an adult that she quickly realized the cost of living in Houston made up for not being able to breathe when she stepped outside. That’s why God created central air, after all.

Jessica is the mother of a perfect little boy–she refuses to accept that he inherited her attitude and sarcastic nature no matter what her husband says.

In addition to being a wife and mom, she’s also a wino, a coffee addict, and an avid lover of all types of books–romances still being her all time favs. Her husband likes to claim that reading is her obsession but she just says it’s a passion…there’s a difference. Not that she’d expect a boy to understand.

Jessica has been writing since she was a little girl, but thankfully grew out of drawing her own pictures for her stories before ever publishing her first book. Because an artist she is not.
