Burn it Down
Finn Cooper is living the life of a real life hero: saving lives by day, giving orgasms by night. He’s fairly skilled with both, too. That is until his best friend’s little sister decides she wants him to be her super hero.
Gigi Cooper is not used to holding her tongue. Just wasn’t raised that way; and Gigi wants Finn Cooper. Her brother’s best friend. Gigi is the last Cooper waiting to find her happily ever after, but she knows a secret: hers has been there the entire time.
Can Gigi convince Finn she’s worth the risk? Or will the threat of something real and solid be enough to force Finn to burn them both to the ground?

Okayy!!! So, let me tell you this book is freaking different – good different, I must say then all the romances I’ve read.
Finn is Gigi’s brother Best friend and we all know the fascination towards the forbidden fruit. Here for Gigi and Finn, there was nothing but challenges at every stage in their life.
I am a man with few morals. Wasn’t raised with many. I do follow a lose code, though certainly never, ever fall for your best friend’s little sister.
I really don’t know how I fell about the starting of the book. I mean it was different from the other romance books, where we get to know how the couple started liking each other and how the things progress. But here we haven’t read how Gigi and Finn met, though we got that in the flash backs (and I really don’t about book #1, if the characters’ relationship was shown or not). The couples were so insecure and self-doubting their relationship with each other. They were like that from the beginning.
Finn and Gigi’s relation was nothing like the usual couple, what they had was angst, insecurities and fears which result in hurting each other. Both were pretty much the same with the insecurities. At some point in the book I really wanted to beat the shit out of them to act maturely… but well I can’t go into the screen and do that, now can I?
The first few chapters were quite cold, maybe I thought this because I didn’t know the relationship of Finn with Cage, Gigi’s brother, and their family. Firstly, I thought Finn was a spineless prick who can’t allow himself to have Gigi and would not allow anyone to have her either.
Finn didn’t say no because he wanted to. Finn said no because he thought we shouldn’t. Finn wanted me too but wouldn’t let himself have me.
But after reading his POVs which were hotly so crass, I learnt about his fears and his dysfunctionality. Looks like the boy had some pretty major family issues. Now that I finally liked Finn, Gigi was annoying me with her to be with someone else who isn’t Finn because she had imagined herself with him her whole life and maybe she sees what’s out there maybe her fascination with Finn would decrease.
Seriously girl!!!!! You cried almost half the book to be with Finn and how he should have stand up to you and now you want to try someone else. Gigi is too complex to understand. But we get her insecurities further into the book.
The most person I hate in this book was Bree. She is said to be Gigi’s best friend but her acts were anything like that. I mean who would throw herself to a man her best friend was in love with????
And then there is this professor, Jordan, who so conveniently touched Gigi in class and in public despite of him being a teacher. Isn’t there a rule or something where student and teacher can’t date. Well here it wasn’t there. Because Jordan was pretty freaking smitten with Gigi.
This book was a whirlwind of angst, insecurities, lots of drama and petulant behaviour. If you are into angry stuff and over the top drama go, try this one out.
Having her there to talk, after a bad day, or a good one even, made me fell complete. I did’nt know how empty I had felt before her.
