Forty-Eight Hour Burn (The Service Club) by Tonya Ramagos


Forty-Eight Hour Burn is a fun little story with lots of yummy domination and submission, hot menage sex, and mild punishment. 

It's one of those HEA stories that moves too quickly into HEA to be believable, but it's still a hot little story.

Here's the blurb:

Georgia knows what Gavin and Randy expect in return for their touch. She’s primed and willing for the sacrifices to feel the fire these roughened, firefighter cowboys offer. Only one thing prevents her total surrender. When they ignite a burn in her that takes her to the edge of orgasmic insanity, she might change her mind.

All it takes is the right woman to have a cowboy bucking to please. Georgia is that woman for Randy, and he’s aching hard to bring on the pleasure. With only forty-eight hours to convince her to stay, he stands to lose a lifetime of crazed heaven.

Gavin figures himself a reasonable man. Fueled by desires for Georgia, he’s made it clear the erotic pleasures he plans to show her. In return, he demands total submission. Compromise isn't an option, especially when he believes she’s in danger from demons associating with him unleash.

BDSM Elements:
  • Bondage and Discipline: Some bondage, not a lot. A few discipline scenes, none of them very rough - mostly orgasm denial and very little physical punishment. 1 of 3
  • Dominance and Submission: Yes. Two very dominant and very hot men, and one very willing submissive. 3 of 3
  • Sadism and Masochism: None. They want to dominate her only where it involves giving her pleasure. 0 of 3

My intensity level is a combination of those three things added together, which gives us a 4 of 10 - I have one more point to give, based on how well the BDSM works with the story, and I'll add that point in for an intensity level of 5 of 10.

The heat level is a 4 of 5, they have really hot sex.

As for the writing elements, Ms. Ramagos does manage to put a bit of a plot into the mix, and if this is part of a series then I see a bit of a story arc being placed as well. The pacing was fine, prose and dialogue were fine, and character development was good.
  • Book Rating: Forty-Eight Hour Burn: 8 of 10
  • Intensity Level: 5 of 10
  • Heat Level: 4 of 5
Not sure if I'll get the second book in the series or not. I'll read the blurb when it comes out, and will likely wait to read some other reviews before I make that decision.
