Review--Afterburn and Aftershock by Sylvia Day

Afterburn and Aftershock (Afterburn & Aftershock, #1-2)Afterburn and Aftershock by Sylvia Day
My rating: 3 of 5 stars

I read the Afterburn and Aftershock together.  I'm a big fan of Sylvia Day and this quick read was not a disappointment.

Gianna Rossi and Jackson Rutledge have history.  But after two years of hearing nothing from Jackson, Gianna is ready to move on.  Back from Las Vegas, in New York, close to her family, she is looking for a job.  She finds one that is just perfect for her.  After being on the job for a while, she gets a big assignment.  Working this assignment gets her back in touch with Jackson, Jax as she calls him.

Will they be able to pick up where they left off?  Does Gianna want to pick up where they left off?  Will they still have the passion for one another that they once did?  And what will her family and her boss think about her being with this powerful man, who destroyed her life before?

Another juicy tale from Sylvia Day.  These two stories are a part of Cosmo's Red-Hot Reads and they didn't disappoint.  I enjoy a good steamy read.  It helps me after I have read something I didn't enjoy or something that was challenging to unwind for the next thing.

The thing that really gets me about these types of books though is that they feature an extremely handsome and wealthy man and a woman they are smitten with at first sight.  then he has her move in with him and has his security detail following her around all the time.  When is the female millionaire going to fall in love with the guy who delivers her packages everyday or makes her espresso?  Then she finds out he really is the rich one and owns the coffee shop and countless others all over the world.  Or he's the president of the delivery company who likes working alongside his employees.  Is there a book out there like that already?  If so, please give me the title.
