Despite being a little icked out by the previous book, I still decided to continue with the series. This one returns with the focus more on Mac and The Nine but, like the previous Iced, there was a scene at the beginning that completely icked me out and made me not like Barrons so much. However, Mac finds out he's messed with her memories and she's rightfully just as angry as I am! Does it sound like I'm invested in these characters? Lol. Anyway, a new (old) character is back, much changed, and things are once again barreling toward destruction on an epic, world-shattering level. With a few caveats, I'm still enjoying this series. Just be aware that the smut level is a 5/5 and if you are sensitive about issues of rape, promiscuous behaviour, or sexual deviancy, this series is not for you.

This is the 7th book in the fever series.
The book starts with answering a question that I never really actively formulated: what’s with the 2am visit in book 1?
Barrons’ account of that visit puts a very different spin on subsequent events and explains a fair bit of the dynamic between him and MacKayla throughout the first 5 books.
Suddenly his insistence on words from MacKayla which bugged me in Shadowfever makes a lot more sense now! Suddenly a lot of things makes more sense now!
But still waiting for an explanation regarding his leniency with Fiona but alas nothing on that front. Just more confirmation that she wanted MacKayla dead from the get go.
The book is written from multiple characters points of views. Jada’s is very confusing because she speaks in the third person about herself!
MacKayla and Barrons are featured here but Ryodan and Jada are being thrust forward too much for my liking.
Can’t say that I particularly like this version of Ryodan that was remade/twisted since Shadowfever. He used to be the warmer one, the nicer one compared to Barrons and now it is the reverse. There is still no logical explanation for why in the first book he ‘talks’ to people (like the Garda) about Barrons who then pummels him for it and in the second book he claims not to know Barrons current identity! Two very contradictory story points!
While Jada is a huge improvement over Dani (who is nails on chalkboard), her character is very boring.
However the book tries to explain the weird Dani backstory and substantiate Ryodan’s weird interest in her that was lacking in Iced.
It also does a good job of explaining Barrons and MacKayla’s absence from the Iced story line. But not why Barrons never told Ryodan about where Dani went!
The book also tries to explain the relationship dynamics between the Nine but frankly it fails. Barrons is supposed to be their leader yet Ryodan gets all the glory for keeping them together. Yet the whole thing sounds like a bad soap opera with too many holes.
There is a LOT that still is shrouded in mystery about the Nine. Hopefully it will be consistent and clever.
The book also tries to explain the inconsistency in Barrons’ cliff scene from Shadowfever compared to here by blaming Fairy (well that was easy!)
MacKayla spends most of her time as a fly on the wall learning about the many characters as if she is also watching a soap opera. It was entertaining nonetheless.
The book as usual ends on another cliffhanger.

Not my thing sorry😕

I find the series DELIGHTFUL, and a great non-chemical mood-lifter & destressor from my real-life troubles. These books are for the red-blooded grown adult who enjoys full-hearted hotness, romance and action stories. Great World-building, beautiful imagery! No boring dead-trouts here!
Burned #7 presents multiple points-of-view (POV) very nicely, sometimes hilariously (Lor!!!), sometimes very touchingly. Mac & Barrons undergo relationship growing pains. Mac is evolving with quiet little hints here & there, but it's a silent fizz, like wine developing in a barrel, leading to further surprises. Dani pays a rather Karmic price for deeds done. I did love Dani's character, she reminded me of Child Soldier Nux of Mad Max - Fury Road, mentally old & damaged beyond her years, suicidally reckless. There's a lot of story setup for the next books, but I'm loving it, cannot wait, and rereading the previous books too. There's quite a bit of detail, so I'm always finding something I missed.

Book 7 of Fever series, preceded by Iced and followed by Feverborn. This was supposed to be the 2nd installment in Dani's story, but it didn't follow the same flow as Iced. This book had multiple POV's - mostly Mac's, and the rest were Dani, Jada, Lor, Christian, Kat and even the Unseelie King. The story started right after Iced finished, and quickly twisted into something a bit unexpected - a lot of revelations and building towards the next book. Since Mac is the one mostly telling the story, I find that I really miss Dani. I am hoping that Ryodan is able to "find" Dani like Barrons was able to bring Mac back from being priya. I am looking forward to the next book - especially to see how Lor's story develops.

If you don't like sexual writing in the books, I would not read her first series she released. It was the first books I read from her and I now own the complete series and also all of these up to Iced but KMM is known for her hot steamy sex scenes in her books. Aside from that I got to say I like these books better than 50 shades. Can't wait to get my hands on this one!

I truly enjoyed all of the books in this series up til now (read them twice), but I was truly disappointed in this book. The story took on such sexual/porn tones from the get go that using the word skimmed would be too generous. I kept thinking, surely the author has children in her family, why would she write this #%*&### stuff. Pre-"Burned" Mac had a refreshing moral compass on her words, well that's over, I'll miss that Mac. I felt the plot was weak, the ending, unbelievably flat. What a relief, couldn't check it back in at the library fast enough.
