Overview

Tobias Gamble knew from a young age precisely the kind of woman he was going to make his. She was not going to be like his mother. She was going to be like the mother he claimed.

In other words, she was going to be just right.

And when Toby returns to his hometown of Matlock, Kentucky and claps eyes on Adeline Forrester, he knows she’s the one.

The problem is, his brother Johnny has a new girlfriend. And Addie is her sister. Last, Toby would do nothing to hurt Johnny’s chance at happiness.

Toby hangs around town to get to know the woman Johnny fell in love with. He also hangs around to get to know Addie.

But he’s fallen hard, and he knows the best thing for him—and Addie—is for him to leave.

Addie Forrester is thrilled her sister Eliza found a good, solid man. Johnny Gamble is the salt of the earth. The best guy in the world.

The best except for his brother, Toby.

Toby doesn’t know it, but Addie’s fallen hard too. He’s perfect, except for the fact that he’s hands off and it’s torture, being friends with Toby when she wants so much more.

Addie also has a lot on her mind. She’s got bills to pay, her young son needs food, Christmas is coming and her job at the grocery store just isn’t cutting it.

Toby is steering clear of Addie. Addie is steering clear of Toby. But everyone around them knows this is the slow burn.

Because just like Eliza and Johnny, Addie and Toby were made for each other.

About the Author

Kristen Ashley grew up in Brownsburg, Indiana but has lived in Denver, Colorado and the West Country of England. Thus she has been blessed to have friends and family around the globe. Her posse is loopy (to say the least) but loopy is good when you want to write. Kristen was raised in a house with a large and multi-generational family. They lived on a very small farm in a small town in the heartland and existed amongst the strains of Glenn Miller, The Everly Brothers, REO Speedwagon and Whitesnake (and the wardrobes that matched). Needless to say, growing up in a house full of music, clothes and love was a good way to grow up. And as she keeps growing up, it keeps getting better.

I know this is hard to believe but I have never listened to or read a book from Kristen Ashley. I have no idea why that is and be assured I am going to rectify that as soon as I can. This is a friends to lovers story, a slow burn as the tittle implies that ticked every one of my boxes. Stella Bloom and Lance Greenfield, the narrators did a great job bringing this story to life and I thoroughly enjoyed their performance. Toby and Addi are two halves of a whole and the interaction between them and the secondary characters was on point. This was a story that I did not want to end and I loved every single minute of it.The characters were captivating and easy to relate to. One click this one I don't think you will be disappointed.

I didn’t find myself in tears as much with The Slow Burn as I did with The Hookup. Not that this book was any less enjoyable. I just found more humor in it than feels. Although there are still tears and feels. For me, I feel like the Grinch and Christmas when the feelings come upon me. What is this wetness in my eyes! Ughhhh LOL   I loved the story of Toby and Addie, and I was thrilled that they both got a book. Toby is a bit of a bad boy and Addie is a wild child, so they are fire together. Toby reminded me a bit of Knight in the bedroom which I loved.   This story is full of heart and soul. It is one that I loved, and I am hoping K/A continues this series because I love the characters.

Out of all the people in the story, toby was the least likeable. Self centered, he managed to use the f word as a noun, verb, and adjective. The author could have done a better job of writing.

I'm sorry, bur most of these books from this author are interchangeable. Exchange one name for another and here's another novel. Still very few nouns and verbs in the same sentence, and the overuse of "honey" from the second day. Really boring. Skimmed entire pages to get through it. Ashley's early books were more creative.
