Slow Burn by Julie Garwood

3-star
Business-savvy eldest of 3 sisters gets unexpected $80-million inheritance from their unknown uncle. She thinks its tied to 2 bomb explosions she was involved in & amazingly survived without serious injury.  Due to the major stressors in her life recently & long-time attraction to her best friend's playboy detective brother Hero, she has a 1-night stand with her Hero. She didn't expect any commitments from him but their night together meant a lot to Hero. So, he takes it upon himself to protect her & find the culprit as he gets more emotionally attached to her.

This Garwood book has her trademark good writing & sensuality.  The action part was fine. Although it was a quick read, it didn't engage my emotions to an intense degree.  It may have helped to flush out Hero & heroine's earlier relationship more & how they end up having a 1-night stand & then being in love with each other.  I prefer an action/suspense-romance, where romance is the primary focus.  This one was about half-half.

Conditionally recommended.
