Review: BULLETS AND BONFIRES by Autumn Jones Lake!

My Review: Have you ever wanted to grab people in movies or books and make them kiss? Like, you know it's coming, it's going to happen no matter how hard they fight... you just want to push them together and make it happen sooner rather than later. That was me during the first half of this book. C'mon! You two were clearly meant to be, you just need to kiss and everything will be perfect! Except not because Bree is dealing with some intense stuff. It's like these two were just circling each other.. bit when they finally pounced - whew! Hot.

I have to applaud the author for how well she wrote a woman coming out of an abusive relationship. Bree is caught between being proud for deciding to leave, and feeling awful because she thinks all this is her fault. And just because it's the hero touching her, it doesn't make everything suddenly okay - she still got freaked out by certain touches or positions. The author didn't skimp on the gritty, real life details, and I greatly appreciate that. It all added to the suspense element, and also made Bree's fight to overcome that much more inspiring.

Cover Lovin': Oh my, yes!

Recommendation: Stand-alone, no prior knowledge necessary.

Final Rating: FOUR out of FIVE stars (4/5)! A great read, with a perfect mix of sweet and suspenseful. 

Happy Reading!

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.
