Toying with Her, an all-new standalone from Prescott Lane is now Live!!!
No one said finding love was easy, but when you invented the world’s best selling vibrator, it’s near impossible. Yep, that’s right. That little toy hidden in your bedside table is my brain child. It’s aptly named Woman on Top. And you know what they say . . . it’s lonely at the top.
So I’m headed home to my Southern roots. It’s supposed to be an extended Summer vacation — nothing more. But Rorke Weston has other plans for me. Plans that not only involve me being on top, but also underneath him.
It’s been said you never forget your first. For me, that’s definitely true. No night has ever lived up to the one I spent with Rorke.
He’s turned into quite a man. Tan from the Southern sun, and stubborn as the day is long. And there’s nothing sweeter than the swipe of his tongue.
Rorke wants his chance. The one we never had. But that was a long time ago. When I still believed in Prince Charming and Happily Ever Afters. Even ten years later, I feel a pull. And it’s not simply Rorke yanking down my panties.
Do second chances really happen? Or is my heart simply toying with me?

"That's the thing about women. When they push you away, it means you need to love them harder"
Sound advice from Rorke's dad.
I loved this book, not only did it have a character that created a sex toy and made millions (go Sterling) it had southern charm and Witt, I loved the plot and I loved the characters harder.
Sterling and Rourke had been friends forever, their parents are best friends, they all lived in a farming town were everyone knew everyone's business, before you reached your destination it was town gossip where you were heading, what you were doing and who with, it was that kind of town.
Right at the beginning of Toying with her you are thrown into Sterling story, how she left her town after college, one thing lead to another and she became the inventor of a new sex toy that took over the market and made her millions. Boyfriends are either with her for money or they are insecure. Sterling is lonely, unhappy and needs the love of her parents. Living in New York, Sterling is still a country girl at heart and decides to return home for the summer.
Sterling has quite a few surprises on her return, she discovers because of her occupation which is very much frowned upon in her judgemental town, that things have changed around her parent's, who were once well respected and a part of the community, things started to change and there's one vindictive gossip normally at the source of it.
What hasn't changed is her childhood best friend Rorke's ability to make sure he is in Sterling's life through the good and the bad. Rorke was her first, he was also the last man to truly bring her pleasure on a night they won't forget before she left town.
Rorke has loved Sterling since he was five years old, only his brother truly knew his feelings for Sterling and on her return to town Rourke who is now a school teacher isn't letting the woman he still loves get away again, sex toy inventor or not nothing will stop him from getting his woman.
Sterling's return is nothing short of scandalous in the eyes of some town folk she's the devil for inventing such a thing as a sex toy in some eyes.
Toying with her is a story you can get lost in. I was moved, I laughed, I loved the hot moments, the sad and happy moments. Rorke had me swooning with his determination, stubbornness and abundant love for Sterling.
Toying with her really does contain everything I love in a romance read.
Sterling is ballsy, witty, fun and adorable. Rorke is charming,hot, funny, bossy and stubbornly in love.
Prescott Lane had me captivated with another plot and had me falling in love with characters that I absolutely adored.
No angst or heavy drama, cheating or anything cringe-worthy, this is good old fashioned romance with hotness thrown in and brilliant captivating writing.
Looking forward to the next book.
The scars of you By Rachael Tonks
Release August 31st
Free on KU!!
Braxton has spent six years running from his past and the memories that haunt him. The loss of the girl who owns his heart and his best friend unleashed the dark in him. Part of a world of crime and murder, Brax knows he’s reached a breaking point and something’s got to give. He has to find her.
The girl he's loved since she saved him that fateful day when they were nothing more than just kids.
The day she went away was the day he lost his heart. That was the day he became everyone's worst nightmare.
He became a monster.
He is hated, feared, and has nothing left to live for.
Isabelle has lived the last six years of her life without hope and in total isolation. Now she finds herself in the clutches of evil with no way out.
All she dreams of is to be reunited with the one boy who showed her what it means to truly be loved. Without him, she’s surrendered herself to an existence she doesn’t know how to escape.
In a moment that will change both of their lives forever, Brax comes face to face with the girl who, for six years, captured his heart. He is unable to ignore the buried desires and the hope for the future they dreamed they’d have.
Can he save the girl he once lost, or will the fight cost him more than he could ever imagine?
Wow! Once I started The Scars of you, I couldn't put it down!.
You know when you read a book, you get to scenes and your heart starts to thud? well mine did this over and over with this book, Rachael Tonks you owe me lager, lots and lots of lager lol
I'm a sucker for a childhood to adult love story but this was so much more. The Scars of you is dark, gripping and intense.
For Six years Braxton (Brax) has been searching for his childhood best friend and love of his life Izzy (Isabelle) who just disappeared, Brax never gave up looking for her and in the process also lost his childhood best friend Travis.
Brax was taken in by Carter Manello, a drug lord, a criminal, a man who saved Brax on a day he lost everything and started to work for him.
Life went on in a way Brax had never imagined but Brax's heart didn't, so many times whenever he was with a woman and having just read Izzy's pov while she is being held in captivity by an evil and savage man my head was screaming nooooo Brax don't do it she's still alive. The scars of you had me flipping pages to get to the good bits like a woman possessed I could't devour it fast enough.
I loved it, I hated it, my emotions were everywhere with so many twists and turns in the plot and so much to come with still some unanswered questions.
The fact its a huge cliffhanger had me frustrated but being a duet I expected it and I am so looking forward to the next book.
Dark, delectable, raw, addictive filled with suspense, gripping and hot scenes, it was everything I love in my reads. Told in first person dual pov's.

Wall Street meets the Sons of Anarchy in the smoldering, scorching first novel in the explosively sexy new Dirty Money series from New York Times bestselling author Lisa Renee Jones.
How bad do you want it?
The only man within the Brandon empire with a moral compass, Shane Brandon is ready to take his family's business dealings legitimate. His reckless and ruthless brother, Derek wants to keep Brandon Enterprises cemented in lies, deceit, and corruption. But the harder Shane fights to pull the company back into the light, the darker he has to become. Then he meets Emily Stevens, a woman who not only stirs a voracious sexual need in him, but becomes the only thing anchoring him between good and evil.
Emily is consumed by Shane, pushed sexually in ways she never dreamed of, falling deeper into the all-encompassing passion that is this man. She trusts him. He trusts her, but therein lies the danger. Emily has a secret, the very thing that brought her to him in the first place, and that secret that could that destroy them both.
We just lay there, in darkness, together and therefore we are not alone.
Hard rules is a plot filled with mystery and manipulative characters.
ABOUT THE PLOT
Shane Brandon is a lawyer who now works for his fathers company The Brandon empire. With a dying father and Shane's brother wanting the reins, it seems everyone is the enemy and no one is to be trusted not even his own mother. This is one family that plays dangerous and manipulative games.
Emily is on the look out for a job having applied for a few jobs, starting anew in a new city, there's more to that which isn't revealed and she first meets Shane in a coffee shop and from the moment she meets to ending up in his bed she didn’t know she would end up being his father's secretary when one of her job applications is successful. The one night stand that wasn't to be.
Emily ends up a pawn is this family's ruthless games and someone Shane falls for.
Shane genuinely begins to care for Emily and doesn't want her caught in the crossfire and wants her away from any destruction pending to the family games with links to Cartel and drugs that Shane is trying to get to the truth about with his brothers dealings but Emily is determined to stay.
I still don't know who Emily is but know she too has her secrets.
I didn’t understand the beginning of this book with a character called Teresa? that completely threw me with that scene, maybe Emily is Teresa, honestly I haven't a clue I'm completely frustrated with this book.
I kept waiting for something to happen in the plot, some excitement, anything to keep me turning the pages other than the thoughts of maybe something will happen soon but it didn’t come.
Two brothers in a battle for the company, with Shane keeping a close eye on his brother and trying to dig up the dirt. I got bored, I'm sure in the second book more will come to light but this book didn't entice me into reading it apart from wanting to know more about secretive Emily.
Told in dual pov, more mystery and suspense than romance, ends on a cliffhanger that will either have you wanting book 2 or it won't.

BOOK TWO DAMAGE CONTROL
Wall Street meets the Sons of Anarchy in Damage Control, the smoldering, scorching next novel in the explosively sexy Dirty Money series.
The only thing more dangerous than a dark secret is a damaged heart…
Shane Brandon has been pushed to the brink, torn between his corrupt family and his explosive, all-consuming desire for Emily Stevens, who he now knows is not who, and what, she seems. Has he trusted the wrong person? Will she, not his brother Derek, be the ultimate destruction of his family Empire?
Emily tries to run from Shane, but he will stop her, confront her, force her to reveal all — one hot touch and kiss at a time, under every intimate detail of who this woman is, and what she wants, is exposed. But as he tears away the dangers of the unknowns with the woman in his bed, and in his heart, The Martina Cartel has set their sights on his company, his family, and the one piece of leverage they believe he won’t gamble with: Emily.
Damage Control continues from exactly where Hard Rules Finished with Emily being confronted about who she really is.
It you haven't read Hard Rules that is a must before embarking on Damage Control. http://bit.ly/DirtyMoneyAmazon
Shane and Emily become more united once she reveals her real identity to Shane and her reasons for changing it, Shane falls even more in love with Emily and is determined to protect her and also try and resolve the mess his brother Derek has got the company in with his dealings with the cartel and the pharmaceutical company.
There's suspense and twists and turns in this slow unwinding plot. I finally go to see who the real Emily was, more was revealed about Derek and his dangerous position he has put himself in and his brother, I found the plot more intriguing than the first book it held my interest more and Shane and Emily's intimate moments sizzling hot.
Family drama, secrets,lies,trust, hate and sex its all going on in this seductive series, it's like an episode of Dallas :-)
Ready to move onto book three and see what happens next.
Told in dual pov's with cliffhanger not a dramatic cliffhanger but ends all the same.

Catch up on the series
The first meeting.... Shane and Emily
Exiting into the grey marbled corridor, I walk toward the huge oval foyer of the building and to the right, where a coffee shop is nestled between a restaurant and a postal facility, both of whom rent from Brandon Enterprises. I head to the register, nearly at the counter when Karen, the owner of the coffee shop, a robust forty-something woman with red hair and a big attitude, appears behind the counter, leaving me no escape from her habitual chitchat.
“Well, well, well,” she says, leaning on the counter. “Now I know what I’m missing on the morning shift and I do declare that seeing Shane Brandon himself, instead of his secretary, is a better “wake-me-up” than any java shot I sell. But then, you Brandon boys came by those looks honestly. That father of yours is a looker.”
And therein lies the reason she irritates the sh*t out of my mother and I happily treat Jessica to afternoon coffee to have her bring me mine. Karen’s not only a chatterbox flirt, she has it bad for my father.
“All right now,” Karen says, grabbing a cup and pen, and preparing to write. “Large latte with a triple shot?”
“Just what the doctor ordered,” I confirm, though I have a feeling once Seth arrives I’ll be wishing for a bottle of whiskey.
“Will do, honey,” she says, giving me a wink before moving toward the espresso machine. “I’ll add it to your tab.”
I retreat to the end of the counter where the orders are delivered, resting my elbow on the ledge, retreating into my mind and chasing problems made worse by the division between Derek and I. He’s thirty-seven, five years my senior, and the rightful successor to our father. I’d happily stepped aside and started my own life, but damn it to hell, I know things now and I can’t walk away.
My order appears and I straighten, intending to claim my coffee and find a seat, when a pretty twenty-something brunette races forward in a puff of sweet, floral scented perfume, and grabs it.
“Miss,” I begin, “that’s-”
She takes a sip and grimaces. “What is this?” She turns to the counter. “Excuse me,” she calls out. “My drink is wrong.”
“Because it’s not your drink,” Karen reprimands her, setting a new cup on the counter. “This is your drink.” She reaches for my cup and turns it around, pointing to the name scribbled on the side. “This one’s for Shane.” She glances at me. “I’ll be right back to fix this. I have another customer.”
I wave my acknowledgement and she hurries away, while my floral scented coffee thief faces me, her porcelain cheeks flushed, her full, really damn distracting mouth, painted pink. “I’m so sorry,” she offers quickly. “I thought I was the only one without my coffee and I was in a hurry.” She starts to hand me my coffee and then quickly sets it on the counter. “You can’t have that. I drank out of it.”
“I saw that,” I say, picking it up. “You grimaced with disgust after trying it.”
Her eyes, a pale blue that matches the short-sleeved silk blouse, go wide. “Oh. I mean no. Or I did, but not because it’s a bad cup of coffee. It’s just very strong.”
“It’s a triple shot latte.”
“A triple,” she says, looking quite serious. “Did you know that in some third world countries they bottle that stuff and sell it as a way to grow hair on your chest.” She lowers her voice and whispers, “That’s not a good look for me.”
“Fortunately,” I say in the midst of a chuckle I would have claimed wasn’t possible five minutes ago, “I don’t share that dilemma.” I lift my cup and add, “Cheers,” before taking a drink, the heavy, rich flavor sliding over my tongue.
She pales, looking exceedingly uncomfortable, before repeating, “I drank from that cup.”
“I know,” I say, offering it back to her. “Try another drink.”
She takes the cup and sets it on the counter. “I can’t drink that. And you can’t either.” She points to the hole on top, now smudged pink. “My lipstick is all over it and I really hate to tell you this but it’s all over you too and…” She laughs, a soft, sexy sound, her hands settling on her slender, but curvy hips, accented by a fitted black skirt. “Sorry. I don’t mean to laugh, but it’s not a good shade for you.”
I laugh now too, officially and impossibly charmed by this woman in spite of being in the middle of what feels like World War III. “Seems you know how to make a lasting impression.”
“Thankfully it’s not lasting,” she says. “It’ll wipe right off. And thank you for being such a good sport. I really am sorry again for all of this.”
“Apologize by getting it off me.”
Confusion puckers her brow. “What?”
“You put it on me.” I grab a napkin from the counter and offer it to her. “You get it off.”
“I put it on the cup,” she says, clearly recovering her quick wit. “You put it on you.”
“I assure you, that had I put it on me, we both would have enjoyed it much more than we are now.” I glance at the napkin. “Are you going to help me?”
Her cheeks flush and she hugs herself, her sudden shyness an intriguing contrast to her confident banter. “I’ll let you know if you don’t get it all.”
My apparently lipstick-stained lips curve at her quick wit but I take the napkin and wipe my mouth, arching a questioning brow when I’m done. She points to the corner of my mouth. “A little more on the left.”
I hand her the napkin. “You do it.”
She inhales, as if for courage, but takes it. “Fine,” she says, stepping closer, that wicked sweet scent of hers teasing my nostrils. Wasting no time, she reaches for my mouth, her body swaying in my direction while my hand itches to settle at her waist. I want this woman and I’m not letting her get away.
“There,” she says, her arm lowering, and not about to let her escape, I capture her hand, holding it and the napkin between us.
Those gorgeous pale blue eyes of hers dart to mine, wide with surprise, the connection sparking an unmistakable charge between us, which I feel with an unexpected, but not unwelcome, jolt. “Thank you,” I say, softening the hard demand in my tone that long ago became natural.
“I owed you,” she says, her voice steady, but there’s a hint of panic in her eyes that isn’t what I expect from this clearly confident, smart woman.
“What’s your name?” I ask.
“Emily,” she replies, sounding just a hint breathless. I decide right then that I like her breathless but I’d like her a whole lot more if she were naked and breathless. “And you’re Shane.”
“That’s right,” I say, already thinking of all the ways I could make her say my name again. “I’ve never seen you here before.”
“I’ve never been here before,” she counters and I have this sense that we are sparring, when we’re not. Or are we?
My cellphone rings and I silently curse the timing, some sixth sense telling me that the minute I let go of this woman, she’s gone, but I also have to think about whatever explosion Seth is trying to contain. “Don’t move,” I order, before releasing her to dig my phone from my pocket. I glance down at the caller ID to find my mother’s number, and just that fast, Emily darts around me.
I curse and turn, fully intending to pursue her, only to have Seth step in front of me. Considering the man equals my six feet two inches, and is broader than I am wide, he stops me in my tracks. I grimace and he arches a blond brow that matches the thick waves of hair on his head. “Looking for me?”
“You’ll do,” I say, reaching for my coffee and bypassing it to pick up Emily’s instead, or rather holding it captive for the return I doubt she’ll make.
Wall Street meets the Sons of Anarchy in Bad Deeds, the smoldering, scorching next novel in the explosively sexy Dirty Money series from New York Times bestselling author Lisa Renee Jones.
Would you bleed for the one you love?
To save his family empire from the grip of the drug cartel, Shane is pushed to the edge of darkness, forced to make choices he might never make. His father is dying. His brother is desperate to rule the empire and this means war and all gloves are off. His brother only thought he knew what dirty meant. Shane is about to give it new meaning. There is another war brewing though, and that one, is inside him, his battle between right and wrong, light and dark, and in the heat of the night, it is Emily he turns to for escape. Driving her to new limits, pushing her to accept a part of him that even he cannot.
In every one of Shane's seductive demands, Emily can taste and feel, his torment, his struggle to save his family and not lose himself. But he is losing himself, and that is a problem just as dangerous as her secret, that still lurk in the shadows, a threat to the Brandon Family waiting to erupt. No matter where she and Shane have traveled, or will travel in the future, she can't just sit back and watch him become everything he hates, everything he never wanted to become, everything she tried to save him from when she tried to run. It could be their undoing, the end. His end.
This is war, blood will spill, and someone in the heart of the Brandon family will not survive...
I really thought this was a trilogy and the next book was going to be about Shane's brother Derek,
I was so wrong.
Brandon is still trying to get the Brandon empire out of Bed with the Cartel and get rid of the Pharmaceutical company his brother Derek has got them into a mess with, Shane is planning, Emily is still Emily and helping in her own way and Derek begins to mellow.
More secrets are reveals, their's more suspense and definitely more hotness.
A slow burn read, I wouldn't say slow burn romance it's definitely sizzling in that department. More of the same really from the last book and the same as the last book bit by bit new questions are answered and new secrets are revealed. You also get a glimpse of Derek's relationship with the Cartel boss's sister.
Told in dual pov's, Derek even has his own pov so you get to know him a little better, what it doesn't have is the awaited HEA.
A suspenseful sizzling hot read.

There are some men who make you helpless.
You know the kind. They steal the breath from your lungs and make your heart beat a little faster with a single look. You can’t stop staring, but the moment they pin those gorgeous eyes on you, you’re done for.
The kind that’s too hard to resist.
This is a collection of men just like that.
Handsome, confident and all for you.
Drawn to him is a brilliant anthology of bite-sized yummy reads!
I loved all of these books, some more than others, all told in dual povs and each gives you a good taste of the authors writing abilities if you haven't read their work before.
Each book roughly about 13/14 chapters inc Epilogue
1. Infatuation by Willow Winters
Young journalist Lila goes to an Alaskan island for an arranged interview by the magazine she works for with Alec Kulls one of the historic families on the island. The interview is on a subject of maintaining the island's traditions, its developments and change in times.
The beginning of the plot is mysterious, the place is mysterious and the man is mysterious and when Lila meets Alec she discovers their interview isn't by chance, he selected her with more than an interview in mind. This is an over the top insta love romance that I thought ended to abruptly with no definate hea.
2. The Billionaire's Beginning by M. Never
I loved this book,business man Ty falls for an ex business partners niece who has been in the forces. Simone has been burned in more ways than one and tries to run but there's no getting away from this determined Alpha.
"shes seduction wrapped in an enigmatic package. And if there's one thing I love its puzzles".
3. Doctor Dreamy by L.J. Shen
I love all things L.J Shen and Dr dreamy and his assistant didn't disappoint, its hot and steamy and a thermometer will be required.
4. Malfeasence by K. Webster
A Judge and a girl fleeing domestic violence. Malfeasance is an older man and younger woman read. Filled with hotness and good plot and second chances at love.
5. Fifth Avenue Blues by Jade West
It's Jade West, I entered into this one thinking Blimey this is tame for jade but oh boy did it heat up. A young woman Emily who works as a library assistant and a famous model Kyle Jordan Prescott due to be actor. This is a second chance romance both characters had a thing in college and never let it go any further through insecurities both thinking they were out of each other league for different reasons. This is hot, hot hot!
6. Datenight by Isabella Starling
This was rape play, not my thing in a read but if you do like this sort of read it was sizzling hot.
7. Bad cop by A. Zavarelli"
A Zavarelli another of my fave authors. A second chance romance. I loved this one. Ginger returns to her hoe town after years away and the gangly teen she once loved is now sheriff and isn't to pleased about her return, she's the girl who got away she's the one who ruined him.
8. One Night By KL Kreig
Hot!!! A one night stand. Two people who can't move on from that night no one else compares, two people who used each other to forget their heartache, one is still wondering who the stranger was while the other knows exactly who she was, Bennett is Sable's brothers business partner and it's time to make a move. .

Part of a world I loathe.
Part of a family who hates me more than I hate myself.
Living with a girl who reminds me of my darkness.
I'm. In. Hell.
Also known as the Cosa Nostra.
My life was over the minute I stepped off that plane.
Son to a murdered mob boss.
Heir to a throne of murder and lies.
My name is Dante Nicolasi.
And there will be blood.
Welcome to the family, blood in - no out.
Omg, that was Amazing!!! I was completely captivated throughout, the characters the plot the unpredictability, just wow....... throws mic.
Dante's journey in Enrage begins when he is undergoing lethal training at the hands of the bosses which basically involves being beaten and starved and beaten again, he is later sent on an assignment within Eagle Elite as a student and to gleam whatever information he has while there. This is Dante's chance to prove himself to the boss's, a worthiness of his bloodline.
El is basically a captive free but under a new watchful eye, from the Russians who used her as a play thing and sex object to the Italian Mob. The Italians saved her from the Russians and now she is under their protection but still feels like a captive, letting her go would leave her vulnerable and in danger so she goes to school and returns to the mansion in which they all share.
El doesn't know who to trust anymore but she is given the opportunity to go to school and has Dante as her protector while there.
El doesn't trust the brooding Italian at first and Dante doesn't trust the Russian who's descendants are his enemy.
This is a grown up dangerous plot within a school setting, there's plenty of action, threats, secrets, lies, danger, violence,hot, funny and draw dropping moments.
El and Dante are unable to fight their attraction for each other but for El to be fully protected she must marry an Italian from within the mafia family and one is chosen for her by one of the Boss's to the displeasure of Dante who begins to grow close to El.
Enrage is entertaining, hot, has angst and exciting moments, for a mafia read with younger characters I absolutely loved it, fans of LJ Shen, A Zavarelli & Sarah Brianne will love this book.
My first eagle Elite book, I know, hangs head and I'm so desperate now to go back and start from the beginning although this book could be read as a stand alone and told in dual pov's

Rock bottom has built way more champions than privilege ever has.
Blaire, an underachieving college student with zero prospects and a ton of issues (hey, being the less-successful twin of a gorgeous supermodel would totally do that to you) needs something from Ty.
Mixed Martial artist Ty, a soon-to-be Welterweight champion of the Xtreme Warrior League and the hottest guy in the Bay Area, wants something from Blaire.
But Ty has a secret.
And Blaire can barely even handle his truths.
Life is about to throw a few knockout punches at both of them. Can they handle the pain?
HE WAS JUST A BOY KISSING A GIRL AND HOPING SHE'S LIKE IT AND HIM AFTER ALL.
I loved this book! This is one of those polar opposite's attract kind of read & I couldn't stop once I started.
I'm a sucker for an mma fighter and this gave me the Real feel like Katy Evans's Real and a plot line (only a little part) that reminded me of Preston's from Sea Breeze by Abbi Glines so without a doubt Tyed has joined my happy awesome shelf because they are another two of my faves right there.
Ty is an MMA fighter on the verge of a big fight and Blaire is studying to become a journalist and ends up with an assignment from her teacher on the MMA sport and has interviews lined up at the gym where Tyler Wilder trains.
Blaire's assignment will give her the important pass or a fail on a sport she knows absolutely nothing about and to top it off she hates violence. Blaire has to pass this time after failing the year before and like a champ she is gets on with it.
Blaire's and Ty's first meeting happens when she is in the car-park of the gym standing my her pink car that she shares with her super model twin sister while smoking a joint to calm her nerves, needles to say Blaire is the total opposite to her model twin sister. Ty comments on her bright pink car giving her the nickname Barbie and pulls the joint from her mouth and throws it away, she immediately comes across as a spunky and take not crap character, I loved her and it seems Ty immediately did too.
I listened to this book on audio and thought the narration was brilliant the excitement and the way Blaire came across as the sassy character made me love her more as I followed Blaire's story.
A great story that would of been a five star if I hadn't kept thinking something was missing and that something was Ty's Pov. I felt there were long gaps in time where you were left wondering what happened or what was said in between and that is my only negative, there was room for Ty and I love dual pov this however is told by Blaire's pov in first person.
I love L.J Shen's writing and her characters, I've read them in no particular order and with each book being a stand alone it doesn't matter what order they are read in but I found this a light read compared to others which are a more recent, touch darker and the characters more alpha which I absolutely love.
Another great read by LJ Shen that had me hungry for more.

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 good slow burn romance (pardon the pun)
Bree is fleeing a domestic violence relationship, while her abuser is behind bars Bree goes home to stay at her brothers or what was her childhood home only her brother is away on business and puts his best friend Liam in charge of looking after Bree.
Bree and Liam have grown up together, his parents have also been her parents coming from a home with no parental guide, a mom who always had different boyfriends her brother Liam was the one always taking care of her.
Bree left for higher education as soon as she could get away from her home town where she always felt judged because of her mother,her upbringing and wanted to get away and so as soon and as she graduated she moved in with her new boyfriend.
Bree was slowly entering into an abusive relationship and before she knew it, it was to late.
Returning home battered and bruised, Liam her childhood crush became her protector.
Liam had always loved Bree but sticking to the Bro-code would never act on his feelings because Bree was his best friends sister.
I loved both characters Bree was a strong person dispite her dv relationship and Autumn Jones Lake delivered Bree's character brilliantly, Bree was broken but not defeated.
Liam is a cop, he's overprotective of Bree hot, swoonworthy but not overbearing.
When Liam finally lets the bro-code burn there's some hot chemistry and sizzling scenes.
A great read that I thoroughly enjoyed, told in dual pov's and leads to a heartwarming hea.
I love Autumn Jones Lake's MC series her characters are always captivating and this standalone was a refreshing change although I do love my biker stories too.
*Bullets & Bonfires does contain a scene of domestic violence not in graphic detail more the damage caused and does not contain rape.
