Review: Slow Burn by Danielle Norman
Our Review for Slow Burn by Danielle Norman
Steps on how to truly enjoy Slow Burn:
Step 1: Read Stetson first. This step is vital. I started Stetson and got sidetracked by other books. And I’d been waiting on this one so I automatically dove in, only to feel like I was missing a piece of the puzzle. And it kinda ruined the first one for me, so I’ll probably only go back when I’ve got a slow reading moment. #sadface
Step 2: Sit back and enjoy Slow Burn…cuz you will slowly burn alive with the chemistry that these two have. It’s the cutest thing watching two characters that just “fit” but one has absolutely no clue. You’ll have to forgive her, she’s a little slow at catching on. And they’re god awful at communication when it comes to those feelers inside.
Step 3: Listen to the playlist at the end. It’s GLORIOUS!!!! I’m an avid reader and music lover to the extraordinaire. I love me an author that includes music that inspired her. I’ll def read this author again, if for the playlists alone! Paris is such a relatable character. She’s like every idea of what a girl is. She aspires to be a mom. She bakes. She cooks all the meals for the family. She raised her sisters and took care of her dad. She’s girly yet isn’t afraid to be a Tom-boy on a farm.
Even with all those good attributes she even had the realness of doubting herself and her feelings. She’s just a “real” woman in my eyes. And I just love her. Heck I want to BE her. Now Asher ain’t perfect. He’s up front about his feelings. Which is amazing. But he can also be a little bit of a donkey too. I loved him for Paris…but I’ll be honest and say he def ain’t on my book boyfriend list. This book is a bit of a shortie…but it’s still totally enjoyable.
I’d def spend my hard earned Kindle money on this, had I not received an ARC. Honestly you get a child-hood love evolving into an adult one. You get the down country family setting. You get an animal loving character for the hero with a true country girl as the heroine. Throw in a little villain with a mystery for some spice and BAM! You’ve got Slow Burn.
There’s a line in the book and I feel I couldn’t have said it better. The use of acronyms is a favorite game of mine. To try and figure out what they mean can be so fun and creative. So without further adieu I give you….They are very MFEO. So join in on my game and figure out what that means…or better yet read the book to find out! It’ll make you smile guaranteed.

Blurb for Slow Burn by Danielle Norman
Paris had changed me.
I wasn’t talking about the city,
I was referring to Paris Jean Kelly.
From the first time we held hands on the school bus to our first kiss, we’d been moving toward one thing, the day I’d ask her to be mine.
How was I to know that she thought friends couldn’t be lovers?
Well…I’m going to prove her wrong.
When her world turns upside down…I’ll be there.
When she’s feeling lost…I’ll be there.
After all, it’s not about the spark or the fire…
It’s all about the Slow Burn.

About the Author
Before becoming a romance writer, I was a body double for Heidi Klum and a backup singer for Adele. Now, I spend my days trying to play keep away from Theo James who won’t stop calling me and asking me out.
And all of this happens before I wake up and face reality where in fact I’m a 50 something mom with grown kids, I’ve been married longer than Theo’s been alive, and I now get my kicks riding a Harley.
As far as my body, I thank, Ben & Jerry’s for that as well as gravity. And I could never be Adele’s backup since I never stop saying the F-word long enough actually to sing.
My books are about kickass women with even better shoes and the men that try to tame them (silly silly men).
In all truth, Danielle began her career as a children’s author and still continues to flourish in that genre under a different name.
