Audiobook Review: Burn (Underground Encounters, #4). ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

Burn by Lisa Carlisle

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

A vampire on the run.

A shapeshifting bounty hunter hired to capture her.

Who will outsmart whom?

Layla Black flees London, on the run from a master vampire. She reinvents herself as Angelica, the singer of an 80s metal cover band in Boston, but her past soon catches up to her.

Devon St. Clair, bounty hunter extraordinaire, is in hot pursuit of a thieving vampire. Vampires, he hated them. Capturing Layla should be a satifsying gig that nets a nice profit.

But Devon wasn’t counting on spitfire Layla being his target, distracting him from his mission. Besides, shapeshifters and vampires didn’t mix. And more bloodsuckers are on their tail.

The hunt is on. But, who will be predator, and who will be prey?

Burn is the fourth installment in the Underground Encounters series, set in a club that attracts supernatural creatures. Each book features a different couple — and perhaps species! — and can be read on its own.

The heroine: Layla (a.k.a. Angelica) – when she is framed for stealing from a master vampire named Stefano, Layla runs from London. She ends up in Massachusetts and hides under an assumed name and starts working as a singer for an 80’s heavy metal cover band called Blood Lust Diamond that plays at Vamps, an underground nightclub near Boston.

The Hero: Devon – vampires and shapeshifters don’t mix. Devon is a shapeshifter that hates all vampires. He is also the best supernatural bounty hunter in the business and is always up to bring in vampires that break the law, though determining their guilt or innocence is not his job. He is currently after a vampire thief named Layla who ran away from London.

The Story: Devon is confused when he first sees Layla, not only is she a vampire, and his bounty but he is attracted to her like nobody’s business. When he captures her, sparks fly. The chemistry between these two was explosive and they couldn’t keep their hands off each other. Though they were still enemies and Devon still planned to bring Layla to Stefano.

The story and the steamy scenes in this series have gotten better as the series goes on. This one was the best so far. I love the fact that there are multiple different kinds of supernaturals in this series. It keeps things interesting, and Devon can shift into any animal, so that is cool. Add into that the rock star romance trope and what more could you want?

This was told in dual points of view via dual narration and was narrated by Amber Lee Conners and Kieran Flitton. I love Amber Lee Connors voice, it is soft and emotive and she speaks in a perfect tempo. Her male voice is also very good and at times I like her male voice even better than Kieran Flitton’s voice. Though I do love dual or duet narration much more than solo.
