I loved the books when I first read them, but it's getting increasingly hard for me to finish them these days.
It took me a while to finish Tempted but Burned is ridiculous for me.

I've had it since May, and I'm still less than half way through.
I just think all they're doing is sitting around talking about how to awaken Zoey, or about how much SR fancies a bird man.

If anyone wants to sum it up for me, they can, I don't think I'm going to finish it.

I don't find it boring. Honestly I thought the Zoey parts were rather lagging. I liked SR and Raphaim's the best. I'm so sick of hearing all the drama that goes on with Zoey and all her boy problems that the other perspectives were really nice.

Yea, I did find all the beating around the bush kind of stuff was a little drawn out and slowed the book down.

I think the book was a bit slow, because it was over a period of what, 3 days? So they had to describe almost everything.. which got a little annoying. But I think the ending where Stark enters the Otherworld was really really good, so that made up for it.
And the Rephaim & Stevie-Rae thing was quite interesting.

i didnt like the zoey parts mostly because she annoys me and they mostly talk about getting her back with which there isnt alot of action. stevie rae an rephiam parts i liked best because i just like how thier reltionship is forming and their is more action in there

It took forever for me to pick this up given the ending of the last book. I just didn't want to see how they'd further destroy Heath...or Erik for that matter. While the books before now were firmly embedded in the mytharc, this book added mythical Darkness and Light personified by a white and black bull respectively, there are vampyre Queens, Warriors who Guardians and Shamans, and a whole bunch of other "out of left field" plot points. The most random discourse was Grandma Redbird discussing Blue Eyed Devil and how she thought Hardy Cates was such a yummy character. If anyone has read Lisa Kleypas' Travis boys series, they'll attest to the fact that Hardy Cates was a much more complex character in the prequel Sugar Daddy. But I digress.

Stevie Rae has her Rephaim secret which she tries to keep secret through lies b/c she never learned a thing from Zoey's mistakes. Zoey is shattered and keeping Heath company. Him going to the other realm killed me all over again. I hope he comes back by the end of the series. Stark is bananas with pain and sadness and I frankly don't get what a Guardian is and what's Honor all about. Aphrodite and the rest of the gang are the same. And Dallas goes completely off the deep end. Sigh. I usually ripped through these books. The last two, especially this one, was painful beyond the Heath destruction.

I agree, I thought it was a little weird to start throwing in all this new stuff really quickly. I think at the very least they should have kept in line with the Native American culture. They do have medicine men and warriors in their history. I don't see why they needed to throw in Celtic beliefs.

I agree, I think SR should tell them about Rephaim, but I don't think they'd want to keep him alive since he is Kalona's favorite son. I see a guardian kinda like a jedi. I think that they know that if they love or whatever their feelings will get in the way of their judgement. At least that's the only way I can make sense of it.

But I didn't get a sense that Stark was giving up on his relationship with Zoey. And given my screenname you'd think I'd catch the Guardians of Peace and Justice in the Galaxy analogy. D'oh!

Rofl, yea. It's one of those things where you really really have to blur the lines and make it up as you go along. There were times where I felt that Stark would rather keep Z safe than be her boyfriend. I guess it's just the way I took it.

Well, it wasn't the most interesting one of them. Definitely not, but I don't really think it was boring. The end was probably the most exciting thing, it left me all miserable about having to wait a year for Awakened. Yea, the Zoey parts weren't the most interesting ones, but that's just because nothing really happened to Zoey in the book with her for the most part, except the soul hysteria. I did like Aphrodite, Stevie Rae & Starks POV, though.

My favourite parts of the book were the bulls and the end, but i didn't find it boring overall, and i read it in about the same amount of time as i did the others. My favourites povs were stark, aphrodite though, i liked stevie rae's at soe parts though aswell.

I am really excited for awakened too, and I am really curious to see whether they do it in the same way as burned or not.

What do you mean with the same way? The povs? They just have to, because otherwise for example the stevie-rephaim-story couldn't be telled!

I meant like flicking between all the characters almost equally, or whether they will still do the different PoVs but less people's, so that it only focuses on say two, eg Stevie Rae and zoey

I don't...I'm just beginning to get used to the switching of the pov's and I like how she has the multiple pov's and I think it helps captures everyones thoughts and side to the story. Like people say there are multiple pov's to one story

I liked reading everyone else's POV. Zoey's is getting a little old.
