Phoebe has been in love with Dante Marquetti since before she lost her virginity to the man. She can’t recall a time when he wasn’t the star of all her sexual fantasies. Now Dante is heading back home and she’s determined to have him one more time. She wants to make Dante burn the way she has all these years.

Dante arrives at his new apartment and is greeted by his neighbor out in the hall—naked. Welcome home! When he realizes it’s Phoebe, he decides there’s only one thing to do. He wants her in his bed…and tonight isn’t soon enough.


Burning Dante sucks you right in at the beginning and doesn’t let you surface for air until you are done. Lacey Thorn did a great job of capturing the feel of a big family, sibling rivalry, and the humour in both.

As a reader, you fall in love with Phoebe and feel her loss right along with her. Phoebe is a fun and crazy character that is endearing in this story. Dante is a confused boy when we first meet him, but he grows into a strong and loving man worthy of Phoebe. Phoebe and Dante share several hot, steamy love scenes that will leave you wanting more.

Dante’s family is a hoot and the ancillary characters just add spice to the story line. They are such great secondary characters that, as a reader, I want to know their stories too.

This was a very enjoyable read. Based on this story, I will be checking out other works by Lacey Thorn.
