When the two meet the chemistry between them is undeniable. But Helene doesn’t trust Andrew. Andrew on the other hand wants to protect Helene and keep her away from the danger she is facing.

Let it burn is a book that made me feel a lot of emotions. It made me feel sad, happy, at times made me laugh and had me rooting for a couple who needed to find each other. I loved that characters from other series made brief appearances in this story. As each Barrington sibling finds their happiness his family slowly is being brought back together from the tragedy that tore it apart. Thank you Ruth for yet another amazing story about the Barrington Billionaires. I cannot wait for the next book in the series.
