When Bridget gets an invite under her door saying she can have $1000 for just turning up to a meeting she decides to go. When she gets there she sees that it's the same man that found her the night before; Daniel. Daniel knows how to push all Bridget's buttons and she soon finds herself entering a contest she knows nothing about. Taken to the home of Trevor Stone she finds 11 other women there for the same reason...but winning might not be the thing that Bridget wants...

I need more. When I started Burning Offer I was enjoying it, but then the more I read the more hooked I got and now that I've finished it all I want is to read more of it. I need to know the answers to some questions (including Daniel's motives, what's going on there!) and just want to dive in.

For the most part Burning Offer was from Bridget's point of view, though there was the odd chapter from Daniel's point of view in there too (which were probably evenly spaced but I was too busy being into the story to actually notice). It worked well, especially when you got the same events from different vantage points.

There was definite chemistry between Bridget and Daniel, and though I don't think either of them were denying it, it was mounting because of the contest "rules" (which I'm not too sure they're going to be sticking to!) Saying that there was also something else between them and I can't quite work out what it is, but it is compelling and makes them human.

Bridget's past was troubled, and her present doesn't seem much better. It was interesting to see her motivation for what she was doing, particularly when she was focusing on how she wasn't morally okay with what was gong on.

This book had me well and truly hooked! I can't wait for more in the series!
