Bullets & Bonfires
by Autumn Jones Lake
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 and Bonfires is a stand alone contemporary romance from the author of the Lost Kings MC series.
Friends that what Liam and Bree are…..Liam is her brother’s best friend….but she has always crushed on him.
Bree’s life has taken a downhill turn that warrants her returning to her home town, to her brother and to Liam. Liam was the perfect ALPHA to Bree’s demeanor. I was a little unsure of Bree’s manner but she proved me wrong! Bullets and Bonfires was my first read from the author, I believe Ms. Lake was able to take an all too common situation and make a woman strong.
I recommend this book, but warn there may be triggers for some. Great story!
