Peek Inside Burnout

Sexy-as-sin Police Chief Mike Flannery knows the new arrival to Hopewell Springs is trouble; he’s been a cop too long not to recognize the signs of a woman running from her past. But he can’t resist her quick wit, smoking-hot body, and the easy way she embraces their close-knit community. Cassie Yates is on the run. Armed with fake ID, her K-9, and a police-issued SUV, she flees to this quiet upstate town to avoid a hit. When the hired assassin hunts her down, Mike’s past comes roaring back and secrets are revealed in an explosion destined to tear them apart—if not destroy them.

This cop might be too hot to handle…

He’s been a cop too long not to recognize the signs of a woman running from her past.

She’s not who she says she is—and isn’t about to share her secrets.

Sexy-as-sin Police Chief Mike Flannery knows the new arrival to Hopewell Springs is trouble. She has a smoking-hot body and a quick wit…and he’ll be damned if that’s not a turn-on. But this former NYPD cop and small-town heartthrob has been burned before, and there’s no way he’ll let that happen again.

New York City Detective Cassie Yates is on the run. A six-month undercover sting in a sleazy bar seemed like a textbook arrest—but now there’s a hit out on her. Armed with fake ID, her K-9 companion, and a police-issued SUV, she flees to a quiet upstate town where she trades her badge and gun for a spatula, finally finding peace in the dream she tossed aside to follow her family into law enforcement.

There’s no denying the fire and ice between them. But as the hired assassin closes in, Mike’s past comes roaring back and secrets are revealed in an explosion destined to tear them apart—if not destroy them.


"Ms. O'Fallon has penned an incredibly captivating, fast-paced read because she's managed to do what I believe makes a really good romantic suspense. The main characters were riveting, and I liked how they interacted with the secondary characters. An incredible novel that had me hanging on every word until the end. I would recommend Burnout if you enjoy romantic suspense, or heroines that are hiding a secret and manage to turn the hero's world upside down for the better." Sara @ HarlequinJunkie

"I loved the chemistry between the two of them, and honestly the whole suspenseful element going on was really great, it made the read so much more exciting. The story is just really well written, and super enjoyable for me. If you like suspenseful romances with cops then you should definitely check this book out!" Kathryn @ NetGalley

"Wow! Talk about steamy. They are meant for each other. I love the suspense. Will they know it's her? Will they find her? Awesome work with keeping the reader on their toes. Loved it!!" -Karla @ NetGalley

"This story is very engaging. The plot is solid and the characters are very well developed. The twists and turns make for a real page turner. The romance is gradual but palpable. The sex is hot. The suspense is intense. The Nest feels like home and the ending is superb." -Brigitte @ NetGalley

"Who read this book because they were totally lured in by a hot cover? What? Have you seen those abs? I'm weak, mkay! But I digress... Burnout was a well paced suspense plot with just enough romance and steam weaved into it to make it a highly entreating read. Tee O'Fallon is a new to me author, but she's definitely one to watch out for and I'd gladly read any of her future releases." -Lana @ Goodreads

I enjoyed this book. Both Mike and Cassie are relateable characters and while there was an element of suspense, there was also a great story of 2 people getting to know one another that was well written and enjoyable to read.

The pacing was strong,... ...more

This is my first Tee O'Fallon book, and whoa, it most definitely will not be my last. Wickedly suspenseful, with a simmering chemistry between two lovable leads, Burnout proved to be edge-of-your-seat fun mixed with small-town-romance charm.

I love a small-town book, truly. I love the camaraderie... ...more

Cassie has followed in her family’s foots steps becoming a detective but she’s always dreamed of becoming a chef. When a small town dinner’s chef quits, she takes up the mantle and impresses the tough as nails boss. This gives Cassie the perfect opportunity to fly under the radar you see…Cassie i... ...more

The abs on that cover are the first thing that caught my eye but the blurb was very enticing and anyone that knows me knows that I can't pass up any romantic suspense book. Well, it was worth it because BURNOUT is exciting and steamy, well-written and a great debut for Ms. O'Fallon.

I loved this one! It's a great romance with a great suspense element to it. Mike and Cassie were great characters and I enjoyed how their relationship developed slowly throughout the story. The attraction was there but the build up took a bit which was a nice change from all the insta-love I've r... ...more

This is a great start to a new series. The heroine in this story is Detective Cassie Yates and, after six months working undercover, she’s now trying to stay off the radar to stop the hit man who is after her succeeding in killing her. She’s opted not to go to a safe house, is using an assumed id... ...more

The story itself I won't rehash to much. Cassie Yates has been undercover for a while in a sleazy nightclub. When the operation is done and dusted and cassie decides to take off for a break, it seems a hit gets put on her head. Cassie ends up in the town of Hopewell Springs where she meets the to... ...more

Plot: 4/5
Characterisation: 4/5
Prose: 4/5
How much I enjoyed it: 5/5

Based on the plot, the book is more of a contemporary romance with suspense elements than a straight romantic suspense. So, we get to see the main characters Cassie & Mike fall in love at their own pace. I like how the suspense... ...more

The stuff has hit the fan. I repeat, the stuff has hit the fan. That's pretty much all Cassie needed to know before she hit the road to keep herself safe. Cassie, a deep-cover cop, has just finished a six month long undercover assignment as a bartender inside a club featuring underage girls. Yeah... ...more

What does it take to cause a cop to burnout? Well Cassie finds out the hard way that she needs to make a change in careers soon or she might not live to see another day. Where as when Mike's burnout happens he chooses to change locations instead. Both have secrets that are better kept under wraps... ...more

By Heather April 30, 2016

I like when men will do anything for their women, "when she stood on her tiptoes again and touched her lips to his, Mike knew he would forgive her anything." When asleep Cassie can't be held accountable for her actions, "he slid his arm around her shoulder and pressed her head to his chest. She s... ...more

Excellent storytelling, Typical Ending

I loved the story, the action scenes, and the characters were well defined. However, why does EVERY single romance book end with the lead female being pregnant??? I am so tired of that!! ...more

I “discovered” Ms O’Fallon by chance when reviewing Blood Money for Netgalley and became an instant fan.
So I decided to go back to this first book of the series, NYPD Blue & Gold.
This one turned out to be just as good, engaging and one not to missed. Both main characters, Mike and Cassie are... ...more
