Burn for Burn follows the lives of 3 main characters, all having been scorned by people in their lives. Finding each other in the same predicament they decide to plot revenge and get some well deserved payback for what has been done to them. The story line is great because it doesn't focus on the overworked contemporary romance, but the middle did drag while the characters got the plan together. Once they had plotted their revenge it picked up and I am so thankful that I have book 2 waiting in the wings. A cliffhanger ends book 1 on a rather precarious note and I look forward to finding out how the girls mange to fix the damage they cause, as well as to uncover even more secrets.
The fact the story follows a trilogy is a great way for the authors to expand on characters and it is because of this fact that there wasn't much character development in book 1. I am hoping that book 2 delves deeper into the characters backgrounds and gives us a bit more development of each main character.Apart from 2 minor nitpicks, Burn for Burn is a great series read and book 2, Fire with Fire is not far from my bookmark.
