Afterburn (Afterburn & Aftershock) by Sylvia Day


#1 New York Times bestselling author Sylvia Day, America’s premier author of provocative fiction, delivers the debut novel from Cosmo Red-Hot Reads from Harlequin.

The realization that Jax still affected me so strongly was a jagged pill to swallow. He’d only been part of my life for five short weeks two years ago. But now he was back. Walking into a deal I’d worked hard to close. And God, he was magnificent. His eyes were a brown so dark they were nearly black. Thickly lashed, they were relentless in their intensity. Had I really thought they were soft and warm? There was nothing soft about Jackson Rutledge. He was a hard and jaded man, cut from a ruthless cloth.

In that moment I understood how badly I wanted to unravel the mystery of Jax. Bad enough that I didn’t mind how much it was going to cost me..

Silvana's Review

There was no doubt when I saw that the creator of the one and only Gideon Cross has a new book coming out, that I will be reading as soon as it comes out!


We have the story of Gia and Jax told in a  Two e-novella installments. Gia never really got over Jax whom she knew in college, loved deeply but was heartbroken by. We meet her a few years after they depart ways and she is a stronger, more ambitious and  a different woman from the one Jax knew before. 

I loved how Jax pursued Gia and the delicious little game they had going on, in business and in the bedroom. The reader can see that they are both still very much in love with each other!

Afterburn is continued in Aftershock coming out in November but does not end in a cliffhanger, I actually thought the ending was perfect- leaves you wanting to know what comes next without being left in despair.

I cannot wait to see what Gia has in store for Jax in Aftershock.

“I’m on to you, Jackson Rutledge.” My voice was low and hard, unwavering. “I’m going to figure you out.”

a very enjoyable read.

Silvana ❤
