Title: Bullets & Bonfires
Author: Autumn Jones Lake
About Bullets & Bonfires:
The one man she’s always wanted is now the sexy sheriff of their hometown.
Battered but not broken, grad student Brianna Avery returns to the childhood home she abandoned four years ago. With her abusive ex behind bars, Bree needs the summer to relax and recover before returning to school. But her overprotective brother decides she needs someone to babysit her in his absence, and he picks the one person guaranteed to drive her nuts.
She’s the one woman he can’t have.
Telling Bree no has never been easy. Four years ago, Liam Hollister did it to preserve his friendship with his best friend—Brianna’s brother. Now, no matter how she tempts him, he’s determined to do the right thing. As deputy sheriff of their rural area, Liam is torn between protecting Brianna and wanting her for himself.
Take a risk or lose the chance.
Spending so much time alone together challenges them both. Old feelings and hurts resurface immediately. With each hot, sweaty day it’s harder to deny their attraction.
It’s going to be a long, hot summer.
Bullets & Bonfires is a complete stand-alone, but if you’re familiar with my Lost Kings MC series, Teller and Murphy make brief appearances throughout.
I knew once I read the blurb that I was going to have to get my hands on this book. You guys know I am a sucker for both a second chance romance AND the brothers best friend. So right away I knew this book would be a winner. This is the first book I have read from Lake and I quite enjoyed her writing. Bullets and Bonfires is the story of Brianna and Liam, Brianna is returning home after getting out of the hospital after a situation with her now, ex boyfriend. Brianna has always had a thing for Liam, however after one regretful night Brianna gave up on the idea of it ever happening. Liam is the sheriff of his hometown. He loves Brianna and will always be there to protect her, so when he figures out why she came home he almost looses it. He picked his friendship with her her brother years ago, but now he just wants to pick her.
The chemistry between Brianna and Liam is off the charts hot. I really enjoyed the way their relationship developed, it was a slow buildup and I think Lake did a great job at building the anticipation. Because Brianna just got out of an abusive relationship nothing is rushed, Liam takes his time comforting and protecting her. Brianna is such a strong character, she is struggling with dealing with the fact that she allowed herself to be in such a bad relationship for so long. But she managed to get herself out and I think that Lake did a great job at keeping her true to herself and the situation. Liam is a yummy alpha…enough said HAHA. No really he is a good guy and he loves Brianna, and while he might get a little over protective it is totally understandable.
I will have to say that while I totally enjoyed this book. It was a fun read, and I think that Lake has a great writing style that she is working with. I HATE this cover. I feel like it looks over photoshopped and I am just really not feeling it. And I know you don’t judge a book by it’s cover, and I didn’t, but if I hadn’t read the blurb I probably never would have picked this up.
That being said, I would totally recommend this one if you like a fast paced action-y second chance romance. It was cute and sweet and everything I thought it was going to be!
