☆☆☆☆☆5 STAR - AMAZING, couldn't put it down, highly recommend (emotions bursting at the seams)

Andrew Barrington never held his lifestyle to a high caliber and left his wealthy lifestyle to join the Marines. Once a Marine, always a Marine. Andrew falls into a deep and dark hole after returning and only one thing is keeping him as level headed as he can muster. He needs this, needs his mind on a mission. Soon, that mission turns into Helene.

Helene Franklin has led a very sheltered life. Being homeschooled and connecting with animals left little time to discover connections actual people, men in particular. Her parents are making her fledge from the nest and off to Aruba to stay with her uncle.

Andrew and Helene are more connected than they thought. As things heat up, bullets fly. Can they weather this storm? Will Andrew be able to live with all he's been through and love Helene like he wants to? Answers are never quite what they seem....

Andrew's story fell incredibly close to my heart and the fact that Ruth Cardello was able to bring such truth to the aspect of what individuals face when returning home in this 4th installment of her Barrington Billionaire's series. Let It Burn brought out many personal emotions as my family has faced extreme similar journeys. My husband was Army and my brother a Marine. My brothers return after a few tours were heartbreaking and this book played on my heart strings. I couldn't help but hold a great pleasure in reading this story. I highly recommend reading Let It Burn along with the rest of this series as there is so much bounded within each book and each Barrington's journey. I can not wait to continue on and find out more of the ultimate mystery... which I will not share because go get it and discover it :)
I enjoyed Helene and her parents characters, the connection and how it brought two very different families together! This will leave you with quite the book hangover.

The book covers are soft, yet blunt and fit this series well. They draw you in like a nice, hot cup of coffee and then when you go to take a sip - you realize it's not the standard cup of coffee, but laced with a fine liquor that leaves your belly burning and wanting another sip. Oh so good!

Ruthie Cardello has done it again folks! She has tied each of these books in her Barrington Billionaire series with the finest silk bow. Reading her books has been such a pleasant and exhilarating ride. She has taken "romance" and morphed it into a million little shooting stars. This series takes you on a journey like no other. It is filled with passion, sex, lust but also carries much weight and depth - family problems, loss, death, abandonment, judgment, betrayal, friendship, mystery, happiness, sadness and other true life altering dilemma's that I will not describe because YOU really should start this series from scratch. I am literally wanting to hop out of my seat with every trickery, turn and discovery that this series unravels. Yes, it is a hot and sexy romance, but you have to read it to see just how much more there is to The Barrington Billionaires.

If you love Ruth Cardello's Barrington Billionaires... then you will be pleasantly pleased that her sister, Jeannette Winters and niece, Danielle Stewart each have a synchronized set that ties into this series. I have indeed read them all and I highly recommend you do too! That laundry can wait to be folded, a dish or two can sit in that sink.... crawl up, with a fur baby or two (if you are anything like me) and start them. I read Ruth's 1-3, then Jeannette's 1-3 and then Danielle's 1-3... NOW they each have BOOK FOUR releasing and I am squealing like a baby getting raspberries on her tummy. Yup, that good! ;) enjoy these gems and shoot me an email because I wouldn't mind some back and forth on what you loved and the secrets within these pages that I will spare you all from if you haven't started yet. You're welcome.

She lived in Boston, Paris, Orlando, New York–then came full circle and moved back to Rhode Island. She now happily lives one town over from the one she was born in. For her, family trumped the warmer weather and international scene.

She was an educator for 20 years, the last 11 as a kindergarten teacher. When her school district began cutting jobs, Ruth turned a serious eye toward her second love, writing, and has never been happier. When she’s not writing, you can find her chasing her children around her small farm, riding her horses, or connecting with her readers online.
