I’m Denver’s unmatchmaker. Every city needs one.

Why? Because people break up—and sometimes they should. But when I learn that entertainment attorney Cyrus Hart is someone else’s mistake, I can’t believe it. He’s smart, successful, and sexy as hell.

When a chance encounter with Cyrus turns into something more, I can’t help but fall for him. Our chemistry is undeniable. But his ex used my company to send him that letter—and that’s a problem. Especially since he doesn’t know I own the company.

How can this possibly work? I know from experience that the riskiest ventures are the worthiest ones…but falling for Cyrus Hart may be my biggest gamble yet.


I’m a man with a plan—college, law school, a great career. So far, so good.

Until a stranger shows up on my doorstep and reads me a breakup letter from my girlfriend. My carefully laid plans unravel.

But then I meet someone new. It’s spontaneous. It’s electric. And it’s not according to plan.


Such a fresh concept! The first book in the new BURNED Inc series by Naima Simone delivers a bit of humor, a whole lot of heart and a group of delectable characters that were a lot of fun to get to know.

Zora is a take charge type of person in the business she is running with her siblings, but she has a lot of baggage she carries around from an unpleasant childhood. Seeing her internal struggle made for an emotional side to this story.

Cyrus is driven and unbudging in his pursuit of a certain type of success, but beneath it all he’s still the heart of a young man who tried his best to overcome hardship.

I recommend this book to anyone that likes a unique concept built on characters with an instant attraction driving the initial connection with family drama coming into the picture often.
