Consumed J.R. Ward Book Review Score: ★★★★★ 5/5 stars
From the #1 New York Times bestselling author and “master of contemporary romance, with heroes so hot they set the pages on fire” (Gena Showalter, New York Times bestselling author), a steamy romantic suspense novel about arson investigator, Anne Ashburn, who is consumed by her troubled past, her family’s scorched legacy, and her current case: chasing a deadly killer.
Anne Ashburn is a woman consumed…
Strong-willed and brash, Anne relished the thrill of fighting fires. But when one risky decision at a warehouse scene changes her life forever, she must reinvent not only her job, but her whole self.
Despite the desire to move on, Anne finds her new career as an arson investigator a pale substitute for all the adrenaline-fueled buzz she left behind. She doesn’t believe she will ever feel that same all-consuming passion for a job again—until a string of suspicious fires endangers the lives of her former colleagues.
Danny McGuire is the best fireman in the city but in the midst of a personal meltdown. He’s taking risks like never before thanks to a reckless death wish—until he teams up with Anne to find the fire starter. Passion flares between them—not for the first time—but as Anne narrows in on her target, the arsonist marks her as the next victim in this firestorm of a novel.
With heart-pounding suspense and sizzling romance, Consumed is a compulsively readable novel that “you won’t be able to put down” (USA TODAY).

User reviews about this book
Great exciting read, easy to get invested in the characters
I’m now a J.R Ward diehard fan. I was in love with the Black Dagger Brotherhood Series, but this was a masterpiece. I love her powerful female and male leads. She is a consummate storyteller and her gift for depth in characters and erotica is unparalleled.
I’ve read all of the Black Dagger novels, and truly love them. I also enjoyed Consumed, but didn’t think Ms. Ward needed to include her political opinions twice—with regard to how people decide to vote, and whether or not we build a wall. It’s all old news, and most people read novels to detach themselves from it, not to read about it in the form of an author’s opinion. Too bad —that makes me want to choose another favorite author!!

Found it bland and boring
Glad I didn’t read first 2 in series.
If you’re used to the witty humor of the black dagger series, this is disappointing. It was ok’ish.

I love to read JR ward books. The characters draw me in and I’m hooked!
Love this author. She is able to make her characters real and relatable. I care what happens. They engage my emotional center head on.
I love the black dagger books but let me just say JR Ward can write ANY genre! This book had me on the edge of my seat and I was unable to put it down! Loved it! I don’t usually review books, but I would give this one 10 stars if I could!
Consumed and Addicted!!

If toy are not consumed with this but you're not hard core enough to read Ward
By Jaymy M.
Wow, this one will really take ta in quite a journey. It deals with some pretty intense and graphic situations, with plenty of heat, a spot if colorful language, a mystery and incredible life choices.
But, fans if J.R. Ward will appreciate how mixed up, messed up and real her characters are. Raw is a good word to describe most of the characters and their nerves of steel emotions.
She writes these firefighters and cops honestly, as heroic and messed up as most truly are. They are are gritty, wounded and wound as her BDB and Fallen Angels are. And as someone who lives and works with guys and gals lime these, I can say she really gets them, how wonderful and messed up life and the job condition many.
If you are not consumed with this group, finding out how the longterm investigation turns out, if they make it to the other side bruised and scarred but alive and functioning if not whole, then you are not hardcore enough to read Ward and her many tarnished characters.
I wasn't sure what to expect coming into this one -- it has no supernatural element -- but was willing to give it a try. It is by The Warden after all. Besides, firefighters and cops are superhuman, literally running in when others run out and often achieving the seemingly impossible in the name of protection, service and self-preservation.
Glad I did. Except for the wait between books...🙄😧
Fans of BDB and all of Ward's series won't regret signing on for another series. This one will get to ya. It's definitely not for the squeamish or faint of heart.
